Friday Night Movie Night: IM+ 3.4 Will Add Speech Recognition

YouTubeThis video is a preview of the upcoming update to IM+. This application is $9.99 so I haven’t broken down and purchased it yet. But, as you can see in this video, the app is pretty sweet. One thing I noticed in the video is the app is sending your voice up to a server to transcribe it, like the Google App and Shazam do. The conversion doesn’t happen right on the iPhone. Either way, pretty sweet when you’re driving!


SMS Bubble Mods – WinterBoard

WinterBoard Yesterday iSpazio added a ton of SMS mods in Cydia. So, I spent some time (ok, WAY too much time) installing and taking screenshots of them all. Until now there were only a few SMS bubble mods but, now there are quite a few you can choose from. So, take a look below and see if there are any you like. [Read more…]

WinterBoard Mods

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

WinterBoard There are quite a few mods in WinterBoard today and I want to mention a few…one of which I am excited to tell the ladies about!! I always try to post about any mods that are aimed toward us females, only because there are not a ton of them and so it is nice to know about the few there are. Well, I honestly have not found that I am overly impressed with but, I really like a new theme called KillSignCarbonPink the other mods are titled; Sun and Moon SMS, Icon Shadow and Icon Glow.

KillSignCarbonPink is a very complete theme. It contains icon, slider bar, keyboard, dialer, wallpaper, system, badges, SMS Bubbles, loading screens, battery and many more mods. It is pretty clean and nicely put together. There are a few things I’m not huge on but overall, a decent theme you will want to check out. The next mod is an SMS mod. It changes your SMS Bubble to an yellow and a pearl color. The yellow sms bubbles have have a star and the pearl have a moon. It also has a star wallpaper. It sounds like it could be cheesy but, it is actually a decent design. [Read more…]

WinterBoard Mods

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

WinterBoard There were are quite a few mods via Steffwiz’s Source in Cydia today. I thought I would touch on a few of them. I just had a person email me yesterday asking if I knew of any SMS bubbles that were available in Cydia and then today there were some! Steffwiz has released both Purple and Auqa SMS bubbles. I know there are more than that in Cydia but, for the life of me I can’t remember the titles of the packages. If you know of any…let me know in the comments.

Palringo 1.0

Available In: App Store       Price: Free  

This instant messanger application connects you to many services including AOL’s AIM, Google Talk, Yahoo! Messenger, Gadu Gadu, ICQ, Jabber, Apple’s iChat and Windows Live Messenger. Not only does it support text based chat, it also supports sending images and voice messages. It puts all of your online contacts together with their service’s icon next to their name. It’s pretty simple to use although I type pretty fast and the keyboard lagged just a bit and caused some spelling errors.

The sound for a new message is sweet. It kinda sounds like the ringer on the phones at CTU on the TV show 24. It’s much shorter though and not annoying. You can switch through chat sessions via the little mailbox in the bottom left. You can change your away status in the bottom right. There is also the feature to create a chat group. I think it only works among other Palringo users. You can also get Palringo for your Mac or Windows PC. Visit for more info. [Read more…]

AppleiPhoneSchool’s Live Video Streaming and Chat of iPhone 3G Launch

AiS Friday, July 11th Doug and I will be at our local Apple Store bright and early. We will be live streaming the launch of the iPhone 3G starting between 7:30-7:45am CST. You will be able to watch everything from waiting in line to purchasing the iPhone 3G to the unboxing of our new iPhone’s…all live. When you visit tomorrow morning, the live video feed will be embedded on the front page. We will also be embedding our chat below the live video feed, that way you guys can chat about what is going on. It should be a good time!

AgileMessenger 1.0.20

AgileMessenger The only change I notice with the update to version 1.0.20 of AgileMessenger is that there is now a Code Page option in the Preferences feature in the main menu. It allows you to change the national character encoding option for ICQ. When selected, you will get a list of all the Code Page options. Let me know in the comments about any other changes you might see. AgileMessenger is available through the ModMyiFone source.

AgileMessenger 1.0.16 – Multi Service Chat Application

AgileMobileThis is the mobile messaging application we’ve all been waiting for. AgileMessenger is a multi service chat application that includes ICQ, MSN, AOL, Yahoo!, Jabber and GoogleTalk. This application is smooth, works over edge or wifi, has tons of features, runs in the background more. Yes, running in the background is going to effect your battery but this can be changed in the Preferences. The interface is great and the tab feature works great.

My only complaint is the sound effects. The current sound is a little annoying and once a sound is made my audio becomes all muffled. It would be sweet if each service had their own original sound effect. I made a quick video to show you how great this really is. You can get AgileMessenger through the ModMyiFone source.

Watch “AgileMessenger” on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

fring for iPod Touch (version 0.9786)

fring Many of you are familiar with fring and as you know frig was developed for the iPhone however, they have had a ton of requests to make it more compatible with the iPod Touch. Well, you asked and they delivered. Today, version 0.9786 of fring was released making it compatible with the iPod Touch. Here is what the developer has to say:

Just like the original version created for the iPhone, this is the same special pre-release R&D version with some chat bugs fixed so now you can mobile internet chat & interact in fring-style on your iPod touch (I know I am stating the obvious… but as there is no Microphone the iPod touch…. it means no fring calls as well).

Doug and I also found that this version works a lot smoother for us. He was able to call Skype on my computer, I was able to call his iPhone from Skype on my computer and we were able to call from iPhone to iPhone using fring. Very, very cool! fring is vailable through the fring source.

Below is a video of the developer using fring on an iPod Touch.

Watch “fring for iPod Touch” on your iPhone or iPod Touch.
