It’s no secret that we’re a fan of Oceanhouse Media’s work here at CTA. They do a great job bringing classic children’s books to life through the App Store (they do much more than that, here’s a link). They recently added the Berestain Bears books to their collection but their most popular titles are the Dr. Seuss books they’ve published. Continuing their very successful run in the App Store, they’ve introduced The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpki [...]

Facebook Video Player for iPad

They're also said to release a new product called "iAds" (the name appears to be pure speculation) on April 7th.

As you may have guessed, we have gone ahead with the jailbreak thanks to the iPhone Dev Team’s new release of the Pwnage Tool version 2.0.2. We’ve been really busy working on getting our iPhones running firmware 2.0.1 and all of the jailbroken apps without any issues. We finally have it, but it definitely was not without difficulties. Read about our frustrations with the process and the apps we wished we still had from firmware 1.1.4 after the break… [...]

Apple Can Kill Your Apps?

By |August 7th, 2008|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , |

Your guess is as good as ours, but Jonathan Zdziarski, the author of a recently published book — iPhone Forenzics — has discovered a URL hidden in a CoreLocation configuration file that suggests Apple could remotely delete any application from your iPhone or iPod Touch. Apple has suggested that they wanted to control each application that appeared on the Cocoa Touch platform in order to determine that it withheld the standards set by the SDK and that no Malicious software made it [...]
