When I travel in my home country of Canada I enjoy the convenience of being able to access local maps and point-of-interest information using a 3G connection combined with the stock Maps app and a range of more specialized offerings such as Urbanspoon and Yelp. When travelling outside of my home and native land, 3G service is often available, but is exhorbantly expensive, leaving me to seek out WiFi connections in order to find my bearings and locate local hotspots.
Before my wife and I left on our latest international adventure, which took us to the Netherlands, Kenya and Tanzania, I scoured the App Store for apps that allow access to map and point-of-interest data in the absence of an Internet connection. I stumbled across OffMaps 2 which, at first glance, seemed to fit the bill perfectly. Read on to learn more about this app’s features and for a report on how well it performed on the road.
Whether the the next iPhone arrives this summer as always or is pushed back to Fall, you can bet that there will be enough fancy new features to make us all hate our currently beloved iPhone 4’s.
However, there are at least three popular feature rumors that shouldn’t be taken seriously. Each of the supposedly possible iPhone 5 features we’ll discuss today arises from a fundamental misunderstanding of Apple as a company. We’ll go through why Jobs and the boys in Cupertino simply aren’t interested in bringing these features to the iPhone or even the iPad.
Voice augmentation has never been easier or more fun than with Voices for iPhone. With the push of a button, you can apply one of the 27 high quality audio filters. Choose from filters like Chipmunk, Underwater, or even Vocoder. Fool your friends with the Witness voice filter or impress party goers with some of the other interesting filters.
The newest update of Voices adds support for the iPhone 4’s Retina Display, adding higher resolution graphics. It also greatly improves the speed of applying audio effects. In the older version, it would take around twenty to thirty seconds for each filter. In iPhone time, thirty seconds can feel like an eternity. The new version only takes five seconds at most to apply each filter.

Today’s iOS devices are direct descendants of Apple’s original iPod line, and the iPhone is perhaps the most popular iPod ever. iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad are all great for playing back music and videos. The only problem is, many of us store much more audio on our Macs and PCs than could fit on a standard iPhone or iPod Touch. Then, streaming audio from Flash-powered sites won’t play back on iOS, no matter how much storage you have. Apple has tried to make a solution with their AirPort Express, but most of us don’t want to pay $99 for a new device just to stream music around your house.
But isn’t your iPhone an internet-connected smart device with a speaker? Seems like you could use it to stream audio from your PC, doesn’t it? There’s no way to do it by default, but thanks to the new WiFi2HiFi app, you can use your iPhone for yet another crazy thing: streaming audio! Paired with a set of speakers or a HiFi dock, you’ve got a full wireless speaker system with just a $0.99 app. Keep reading to see how WiFi2HiFi works and if it’s the app you need to free audio from your computer!
