Update: TomTom’s GPS app now works with the iPod touch

Man, has TomTom flip-flopped (more than either major political party on the last few campaigns) as to whether its iPhone GPS app + dock will / will not work with the other iGuy – the iPod touch. Well, as of yesterday, it seems that the latest update to the iApp (v1.2) has brought good news …


Turn your iPod touch into a wireless touchpad, for free!

There are all sorts of reasons why you might want to control your computer from across the room, i.e. remotely. For instance, when I can’t catch my favorite sports teams on TV, I will often connect my laptop to my TV to stream the game (via MyP2P.eu) on the big screen. Being able to control …

Update: TomTom iPod touch app is “coming soon”

A couple months back, I posed the question: Will TomTom release an iPod touch app + dock GPS, too? It sounds like the answer is…yes.
Earlier this week, TomTom announced that its anticipated iPhone GPS app (iTunes link) was finally available through Apple’s App store for $99.99. More importantly on the touch side of things, TomTom …

iApps: ‘Public Radio Tuner’ streams NPR-type stations from around the country to your iDevice

I’m not sure whether to attribute my love of National Public Radio (and related content) to my parents incessant listening while I was growing up in the news-hyper Washington DC Metro Area, the fact that I’ve been commuting a rather sizable distance for the last 5 or so years, and/or to my lack of interest …

iApps: Comcast TV Listings app surprisingly Comcastic, disappointing

Dear Comcast,
As a loyal customer for the last 10 years (god, don’t ask me how or why), I’ve learned to become complacent with regards to your seemingly never ending service and support let downs. While I occasionally get a kick out of your ads (“Everyone loves Money”), I certainly never get a kick out of …


iApps: Arcade Bowling Lite puts skeeball in your pocket

Skyworks’ Arcade Bowling Lite (iTunes link) is the epitomy of what a great iPhone / iPod touch application can be – novel, easy to play, and surprisingly entertaining.
At first glance, this free app is nothing more than a simple skeeball simulator. However, for anyone who grew up playing the sport (be it at your neighborhood …
