A look at Movie Challenge: You think you know your movies?

Movie Challenge, developed by Redwind Software, is a recently released movie game for the iPhone. Looking around the App Store, there appears to be quite a few such trivia games out there already. While I personally haven’t tried the others just yet, most of them offer what seems to be limited styles of play. This is where Movie Challenge steps up to the plate. Redwind Software has designed the game with loads of features in mind. Besides a trivia mode where the user must choose the correct answer out of x number of questions (as seen in most trivia games), Redwind offers multiple game types:

Laptops On-The-Go : A look at PDANet

There are many reasons for jailbreaking your iPhone, be it video recording, run apps in the background, or customize the theme of the springboard (the list goes on and on). Personally, if I had to choose just ONE reason to jailbreak, it would be the ability to tether my laptop. Tethering will allow my laptop to go online wirelessly through the high speed network of the iPhone. Just imagine the possibilities. Surf the web on your netbook/laptop even when there are no wireless networks nearby or if the networks are password protected.

This brings me to PdaNet,a free and simple app that will make your iPhone act like a wireless router. The beauty of it all lies in the fact that it uses an ad-hoc wi-fi network that allows the iPhone to connect to a PC or MAC. No need to enter any IP numbers or deal with any SOCKS proxy connections.

m•Box Mail in Review: Calling all Hotmail users!

I know not everyone uses Hotmail, but one of the complaints early on by iPhone users was that the native Mail app didn’t support Hotmail of the box (unlike Yahoo and Gmail).

You can use IzyMail as a webmail gateway, thereby giving you POP/IMAP settings to enter into the native mail app to retrieve your mail. The downfall here is that your emails pass through a third party server and not to mention a monthly fee for the service. To get around this dilemma, I dug out my rarely used gmail account, forwarded my Continue reading…
