QuickTip – Change Default Search Engine

AiS Well, I still have a few more QuickTips for safari so, I will be sticking to my Safari theme again this week! If you have a QuickTip you would like to submit you can email it to QuickTip@appleiphoneschool.com.

QuickTip – When in Safari, it automatically defaults to the Google search engine. Meaning, it uses Google when you search for things within Safari. However, this can be changed so that it defaults to the Yahoo search engine. If you go into the stock Settings application on your iPhone or iPod Touch, you can select the Safari option. Once in the Safari option, there is a Search Engine option. When selected, you have the ability to choose between Google and Yahoo. If you would like to switch the default search engine to Yahoo….just tap on Yahoo! You can then open Safari and you will notice that the quick search is now Yahoo instead of Google. See screenshots below.

Personally, I’m all about Google but I know some of you do prefer Yahoo! So, happy surfing! [Read more…]

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.
