Posted on June 11, 2010 | No Commentsrunning iPhone OS 4 -- now known as iOS 4 -- since it was first announced in April, we actually haven't been able to try out any of the fancy new multitasking features, since no third party apps have been released with support yet. That's all about to change: as of today, Apple is accepting iOS 4 apps, which means we should see quite a few apps that take advantage of multitasking on the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, as well as make use of the 1500 other new APIs in the system when it launches on June 21.
That's definitely good news, but we've got a feeling Apple's unique take on iPhone multitasking will take a few people by surprise, as only certain tasks are allowed in the background -- and apps that need to run persistently, like IRC and IM clients, still won't really work at all. In fact, there's already some rumblings by devs that they need additional backgrounding tools in order to provide features that users are asking for; Instapaper's Marco Ament has proposed a network polling API that would allow his app to update content in the background, for example. We'll see how quickly Apple responds to these requests, but for right now we're just happy we'll finally be able to switch away from a Skype call or GPS app while using our iPhones.

Posted on May 28, 2010 | No CommentsSafari on the iPhone is by no means a bad mobile browser — in fact, it’s arguably the best one out there. Just because people have something good doesn’t mean they don’t want to peek at what else is out there, though. Even if someone’s dating the finest supermodel in all the lands, they’ll still [...]
Posted on November 29, 2009 | No CommentsDroid is perfectly capable of implementing multitouch gestures in third-party apps, and the most high-profile (if not the most important, period) implementation of that is in a good web browser where non-stop zooming is a way of life -- especially when browsing sites designed for desktops. Dolphin -- which has been kicking around for a couple months in the Market -- has just added multitouch support on the Droid, which automatically makes it an interesting alternative to Android's mediocre (well, mediocre by WebKit standards, anyhow) built-in fare. Follow the break for a video overview -- or better yet, if you're running Android and you've got a couple fingers to spare, just check it out yourself.Permalink | Email this | Comments
Posted on August 18, 2009 | No CommentsThe Palm Pre has taken a lot of heat for its limited App Catalog, which, months after the launch of the device and its respective SDK, still only contains roughly 30 applications. It’s easy to look at the numbers and forget the backstories; the iPhone went a whole year and entire model before they even [...]
Posted on July 17, 2009 | No CommentsApple’s iPhone App Store may be a resounding success. But Google says app stores are a dead end. Sour grapes? Maybe. It’s no coincidence that Google has placed its money on web-based applications, for its mobile Android operating system as well as its forthcoming Chrome OS. Vic Gundotra, Google’s engineering vice president and developer evangelist, said on [...]
Posted on July 9, 2009 | No CommentsLooks like WebOS 1.1 is coming in "the next 30 days" with some new applications as well as exchange server policies that allow for remote wipe and smarter password controls. A tipster leaked this slide which is purportedly from the secret lair of Palm herself.
Posted on July 1, 2009 | No CommentsApple has taken the latest build of iPhone OS 3.1 in its gentle hands, climbed to the roof of the Cupertino campus and lofted the update to the winds, shouting “Fly, my little one! Fly!” The beta version of the next update contains some new features, most of which will only be useful to 3GS owners. [...]
