iDownload – Download and share files directly from your iPhone or iPod Touch

Available In: App Store       Price: $0.99  

iDownload I must admit that I’ve had this app on my iPhone for a while now, and I had been putting off writing the review. Honestly, I wasn’t quite sure what to do with this app, and I wanted to make sure I explored all of the possible uses before I made my final opinions. First, the most obvious use for this application is to allow one to download files directly onto the iPhone. I haven’t had much use for this. For one, the iPhone does not have a built-in method for accessing files as my previous Windows Mobile devices did. There’s no “My Computer” to be found (thankfully) on my iPhone home screen. Thus, I’ve never been tempted to download and store any files on my iPhone. If I needed to look at a file, the iPhone usually took care of this by opening the PDF, Word, or Excel document and that was that.

With iDownload, you are able to download files directly to your iPhone, as well as share files with any web-enabled device. This is supposed to be two-way, so files can be transferred both to and from the iPhone. Although the instructions on the website state that it would be “easy as 1, 2, 3”, I decided to put each function to the test. My results follow below: [Read more…]

MewSeek 0.4

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

If you remember iSlsk, a P2P client from firmware 1.1.4 and below, you will recognize MewSeek. MewSeek is iSlsk for firmware 2.x. It has basically the same look and the same features as iSlsk. When you open MewSeek, you will get a Terms of Agreement in which you will need to accept before entering into the application. Once in the application, you will notice that the lower menu options have not changed they still include; What’s New which gives you more information about the application, Settings, File Search, Transfers and Downloads.

Podcaster 1.1-2

Available In: Cydia       Price: $4.99 – Free 14 day trial  

Pocaster is an application that allows you to wirelessly download podcasts (similar to MobileCast). When you open Podcaster, you will get a nice splashscreen and then the main page of the application. Here you will see a lower menu bar with the options; My Podcasts, Unplayed and Downloads. My Podcasts is where you can search for a podcast or import a podcast. You can do this by selecting the + icon in the upper left corner of the screen.

If you find a podcast you would like, you can select it and it will be add it to the My Podcasts list. Once selected, you will then be brought back to the main screen where you will see the podcast you just selected from the the search results. From here you can select the title of the podcast to get a list of all the available podcasts. This will bring up a list and another menu bar. On the lower menu bar you now have the option to (from left to right) mark all the podcasts as read, use the build in movie player or Podcaster’s movie player, unsubscribe to the entire podcast and refresh the podcast list.

If you select one of the podcasts from the list, [Read more…]

MobileCast 3.0~b1

Another app that made it’s debut this week-end was MobileCast. I really liked the MobileCast application from firmware 1.1.4 and below!! I used it all the time! So, I was really excited to see that MobileCast had made it to firmware 2.x. MobileCast is an application that allows you to wireless download podcasts.

The new MobileCast has a slightly new look and feel to it. When you open the application, you will notice three options on the lower menu bar; Favorites, Downloads and Search. The Search option allows you to search for audio and video podcasts. I will say that the search is a little slow and slightly glitchy but, if you can make it past that, you will get a list of relevant options based on your search. You can then select Add next to the podcast you would like to add to your favorites. You will get a pop-up saying that the podcast feed was successfully added. [Read more…]

MxTube 1.5a

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

MxTube MxTube has made it’s way into Cydia. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting to see it so quickly based on a post written by the developer a few days ago saying that MxTube was going to be delayed due to a few bugs. It seems the developer has made a compromise releasing version 1.5a. It basically makes MxTube run on the 2.0 firmware…there are a few new feature but, it is not the full MxTube 2.0 version. The new features include; Background Downloader (which allows you to continue to download videos even after closing the application), Video Descriptions and the ability to watch videos in MxTube before downloading them. All of which are very cool new features!!

When you first open MxTube 1.5a, you will need to accept the License Agreement. From here you will get a donate pop-up and then be brought to the main page of the application. The overall application looks the same. You still have the options; [Read more…]

MyMedia 0.903

MyMedia The update to MyMedia adds additional language compatibility. On the main Info screen you will notice six flags representing the language that are supported, they include; French, English, German, Italian and Korean. Another new feature is in the Download section, you will now see a MediaCache options which you then have to select to get the list of files in your media cache. This makes it a little easier to pull the files off.

Another cool new feature is that in the Music section, you are now able to add the the music files to a Playlist. If you tap on a file, [Read more…]
