Phone

One of the things that I have greatly appreciated about my iPhone is the fact that I still have held onto my unlimited data plan since I first signed up. It still rubs me the wrong way how much you have to pay for smartphone plans now days. I get the fact that cell phone companies have to charge more because they are subsidizing the phone, but there has got to be a better solution.

I have always thought that VOIP could somehow challenge these big, corporate cell companies and make themselves competitive. When Google Voice came out, it looked like they might be able to do this. But as we have learned over the past couple of years, VOIP doesn’t look like it is ready to be a player just yet. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t developers out there that are creating some cool apps for it. Outside of Google Voice, one option isĀ SendHub. Let’s take a look at it after the jump. (more…)

Less focus is needed to dial, focus can stay where it has to be!

The iPod has come a long way since 2001. The second generation model sitting on my desk doesn’t have a color screen, weighs enough to be used as a self-defense aid and does little else than play music (though block breaker was a pretty cool feature at the time).

My iPod Touch on the other hand is an astonishing technological feat rivaling that of the iPhone. However, there are definitely a few major features that iPhone users enjoy that I miss out on. Fortunately, several app developers are on the task of closing this feature gap and have significantly extended the functionality of the iPod Touch.

Today we’ll look at ten apps that help make your iPod Touch a lot cooler by mimicking some of the basic features found on iPhones.
