iApps: ESPN ScoreCenter prioritizes your favorite teams

Anyone who uses an iPod touch / iPhone knows there are a number of (free) sports scores apps floating around out there.

Guilty As Charged: I want an iClooly iPod touch stand

Those of you who know me know that I’m no Apple fanboy…nor an Apple detractor, for that matter. The fact is, I’ve owned Windows-only computers for my entire life, dabbled with Ubuntu (briefly), and have never (seriously) considered purchasing a “Cupertino Special” (just in case this has some other meaning that I’m unaware of, I’m …


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 …

How-to: Transfer apps from iPod touch (back) to iTunes

Having recently migrated from an old machine to a new desktop, I had almost everything setup just the way I like it. Only, I couldn’t figure out how to transfer all the (free, haven’t paid for a single one yet!) apps from my iPod touch (2G) to the new iTunes install.
The default syncing …
