A Feature Rich iPhone OS 4.0 - Unveiled

Finally Apple has come up with the source for multi-tasking for iphone as well. The new OS 4.0 has made it possible to iphone to render the service that was missing in the previous versions. Not only this, it comes with a huge list of features that are sure to make it a very useful and going to make big in the market. So lets see all the features this one has in some detail in the article.


The much criticized and talked about multi-tasking is finally possible with iPhone. This has been made possible with seven main services that are audio, VoIP, location, push notifications, local notifications, task completion and fast app switching that are under the umbrella of tasking together.

The audio can still be played if you are browsing on the net or doing something else. VoIP calls can be received even when working on some other app and while the phone is locked. Navigational apps can still let you know the location even when you are working or listening to music. You will keep getting the alerts from remote servers even when the app is not working, and some of the applications will finish the task and then only shut down even when the phone is switched off.

Fast app switching

The apps are not actually running in the background in the OS 4.0 but they get totally frozen when they are switched from one to another and thus when you switch back to them they restart exactly at the same point they were left at. This allows for a faster switching.

Apps Folder

Easy to create folder options. Drag one icon of the application to another one and a folder is automatically created. The name of the folder is named on the basis of the category the apps come from.

A new Mail app

Unified inboxes, multiple Exchange accounts, fast inbox switching, threaded messages are all possible now.


This is interesting. What we saw with the iPad is now also available with the iPhone, easier to carry it around wherever you go. The eBook store feature has been included in this latest version.

Game Center

Games go interactive. iPhone OS 4.0 lets you share your game scores, achievements, invite others to join you in a multiplayer games and a lot more. Apple is going to launch a centralized gaming service by the end of this year like the kinds of Xbox Live of PSN where you can connect games to one another.

iPAD Advertising

Another interesting feature that allows for more convenience for the users. Instead of gong out of the application from the links that take you to the site of the ads, now you can see the ads right there within the apps. You can watch videos, play games, and even buy apps from within these ads. Its not included in the main OS 4 explicitly but is a part of the SDK. So you will only be able to see this till the end of this year.

This is not it, there is a 5X digital zoom, Bluetooth keyboard, custom backgrounds and as much as 1500 APIs to lay your hands on to further customize your iPhone according to the way you like it.

Best iPhone Pregnancy Apps For Mom and Dad

I admit that I'm sort of a geek also..but not extremely geeky to the extend of wearing geeky glasses and holding laptop wherever i go. I'm an Application Support Engineer with also a background of Software Engineering so I do honestly loves anything to do with computers and technology gadgets. Me and my wife we both own an iphone and today I thought of sharing a couple of applications for iphone that we personally uses and some others as well for all future/current expecting parents. So here we go. (I personally have them all on my iPhone as well)

1. iPregnancy - This app is one of the famous and most recommended app for pregnancy. I personally use this with also Baby Bump which i will cover next. This app is really extensive and very useful. You can have all your baby information in there as well as your Obstetrician visits information, reminder, important contact numbers, storing baby names suggestions, week to week information for you to know on the pregnancy (General), and you can also share your information to Facebook & Twitter. The only downside for me is the interface is kind of plain and lack the 'baby theme' that's all but it generally does what it's suppose to do. You can't expect much (in terms of design) when it's coming from a pediatrician.

2. Baby Bump - What i like most about baby bump other than the usual must-have functions is the interface and also the theme of the app, It really captures the true nature of the app. It has week to week information on pregnancy, journal, photo album, kick counter, contractions, database of baby names, and one feature called 'Birth' where in there you can set your birth plan, newborn essentials checklist, and also a neat feature of 'Birth Announcement' where as soon as your baby is born you can set all the details (name,weight,gender,D.O.B, length) and send the 'Announcement' by email, twitter, and also Facebook. I really recommend this app!!

Preconception Apps

1. iPeriod - For those planning to have baby or just keeping your period information, this is one of the apps that my wife uses.

2. Period Tracker - Another apps for the ladies out there which is also used by my wife. We use it both to keep track on her period and also for us to keep track on the best date to try an conceive.

Secrets To The Best Android Phones From Verizon

Of the thirteen Verizon Android phones the The HTC ThunderBolt is currently their premier phone. Other popular Verizon Androids are the Motorola's Droid 2 and the HTC Droid Incredible 2. However, these two phones don't sport the 4G connectivity, while the ThunderBolt does.

From a physical point of view the ThunderBolt is fairly heavy (6.4 ounces) and large (4.8 x 2.6 x 0.5 inches HWD). For some this is not an issue and gives the phone a solid premier feel, but if you like a phone that fits lightly in your pocket this one might not be for you. The display screen is an impressive 4.3 Inches (800 x 480 pixels), giving you crisp viewing even at obscure angles. There is a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera for video calling and a powerful 8 megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash. The real aspect that puts this phone ahead of the Droid 2 and Droid Incredible 2 is the connectivity speed - the ThunderBolt is now running on Verizon's 4G LTE network. Verizon's rapid 4G network is new and already covers a large number of the major metropolitan areas.

For almost all the smartphones you are required to select the $30 data plan, giving you unlimited data, and there is no extra cost if you are running on 4G versus 3G. A neat option is to get WiFi hotspot, this $20 add-on allows you to connect up to eight devices, such as your laptop, to your phone's internet so you always have internet on the go. The flip side to having such quick browsing speeds is that your battery probably will not last you more than two and half hours of 4G use. This has raised a lot of questions as to the functionality of the phone. However, on 3G you can expect to get around eight hours of talk time. Which by all accounts is very reasonable. The reality is you are likely to have trouble getting through the day without recharging. For a high pace corporate individual this might not be the right phone for you, but if you want to dazzle your friends with the fastest internet speeds then this one is for you.

You are likely to find the phone quick to maneuver through apps and day-to-day use with the 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, and Android 2.2 (Froyo) operating system. Unfortunately, the Thunderbolt does not ship with the latest Android version (Gingerbread, 2.3). However, it is expected to have an official upgrade sometime this Summer, with unofficial version online for users that have rooted their handset. Note, Android has blocked users with rooted devices from using the movie rental options. The phone ships with 2.5 MB of built in memory and a 32 SDmicro card - more than enough room to store all your pictures and videos.

To sum things up, the Thunderbolt is Verizon's premier phone. It is a better option for you even if you do not have access to the 4G network than the Droid X, merely because the interface from HTC (Sence) has better functionality than Motorola's MotoBlur. If you are toying with the iphone, don't. It does not have the 4G connectivity, and nor will the iphone 5, soon to be called iPhone 4S. The Droid 2 might be an option to consider if you prefer having a physical keyboard (much improved keyboard from the original Droid). If not, stick with the Thunderbolt and hope that the next generation smartphone's have better battery efficiencies.

This revolutionary smartphone is now also available in a stunning white colour variant offering a fashionable alternative for style conscious users.

Boasting the same spec list in terms of software and hardware, this version has a stylish white casing rather than the standard black. The appearance of the handset gives an air of sophistication and luxury, and really sets the standard for competing luxury smartphones. As with the black version of the Apple iphone 4, the white version offers several improvements on the previous iPhone models.

The retina display is ideal for viewing videos and photos, and even the iOS 4 operating system and the Apps look great. This is because the retina display has 326 pixels per inch, which is more than the human eye can perceive. This results in display quality which is amongst the highest of any mobile phone currently available. With a pixel resolution of 640x 960, and a whopping 16M displayed colours it is easy to see why the display quality has to be seen to be believed. The 3.5 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen offers a great user experience, thanks to a powerful Apple A4 1GHz processor (the same processor used in the iPad) providing lightning fast speeds, with virtually no lag. This makes opening and operating apps a breeze, even in comparison to the iPhone 3GS.

The new iOS 4 operating system provides a welcomed level of customisation, whereby users can alter the lock and homes screens with a seemingly infinite number of images provides by apps, or the user’s own images can be utilised, including ones taken on the built in 5 MP camera, which is even capable of shooting 720p (HD) quality video footage. For the first time on an iPhone, the camera is supplied with a flash, along with the standard image enhancing features including autofocus, touch-focus and geo-tagging. An additional VGA camera is also located on the front of the handset, which allows users to carry out video calls with other iPhone 4 users over Wi-Fi networks.

Surfing the web is an impressive experience on the iPhone 4 White. Speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps are available on 3G networks via an HSDPA connection, with Wi-Fi offering the fastest connection. Pinch to zoom allows users to focus in on text, which appears much crisper and higher quality than print, thanks to the pixel resolution of the retina display.

Obviously, the AppStore provides virtually endless possibilities, with hundreds of thousands of free and paid Apps in every imaginable category adding the already impressive versatility and everyday functionality of the handset.

Arguably the most advanced handset available, the iPhone 4 White now offers a new level of aesthetic appeal to match its specs, and anyone would be hard pressed not to find something they love about this phone.

Review: Apple�s New iPhone

Like many people, I sat glued to the blogs on June 7, 2010 for the Worldwide Developers Conference. Everyone knew what was coming: Apple was going to release the newest iphone. Even after the whole iphone leak, it was unclear what the device would offer.

I have stayed up many nights and have done a lot of research on this new phone. I wasn’t sure if I would get it, but after the iOS4 software update it seemed like Apple didn’t give me much of a choice. My iPhone 3G was awesome, but the update made it too glitchy and left me and others flusterd.

Long story short, I showed up at my local AT&T store at 7 a.m. on Tuesday (the day AT&T released the iPhone 4) to grab one of 20 iPhones they had in stock. I was number 17. I am impressed. I have heard lots of bad things: the reception is bad, having glass on both sides is not good, and the list goes on. But from the second the sales person turned my new phone on I could tell it was going to be better. The sound alone (maybe I was hearing things, it was 7 in the morning) was crisper than before.

With its slimmed down sleek look, the iPhone 4 is more modern looking. Most importantly, it’s shiny, and for some reason people like shiny stuff. Right away you notice the glass on both sides instead of just on the screen –I’m not sure of the purpose, but I am not complaining. The phone has a camera out front, which is pretty cool for that sweet Facebook pic, Skype or for the new Facetime Apple just introduced. However, you can only enjoy Facetime with other iPhone 4 users. The phone has the camera on the back as well, and now it is 5-megapixels. Another noteable improvement is the volume control, which is now it split into two buttons with a clear + and -.

I was amazed at how easy to set up the phone was, and iTunes made it easy to transfer music from one phone to the other – I have had many phones and this one was by far the easiest transition. The new phone allows you to set your home screen. In the previous version the only choice was a black background, but now it is like a desktop. The new Retina display is quite a change from the older phones. This has to be the clearest cell phone screens I have ever seen.

I have heard a lot about calls being dropped or the bars are not all there, though I have not had an issue with this yet. I have also read if you buy a case for the phone the reception will be better – something to do with holding the phone with bare hands throws off the newly designed external antenna. One is I have had is with my Bluetooth headset. My phone cannot find my device. Recognition depends on the brand and model you have. Also, with my iFrogz case the phone doesn’t fit into my iHome. Of course this is not Apple’s fault, but it’s something to consider.

By far the biggest problem so far is a faulty sensor near the ear piece. I actually read about this before it happened to me. I was on the phone and all of a sudden the call was muted. What happens is when you hold the phone close to your ear the screen disappears so your ear doesn’t dial or press buttons when you’re on the phone. As a result of this glitch, I ended up hanging up, muting and dialing while on the phone.

For me the good outweighs the bad. I know after owning Apple products for a few years now that the big problems will get fixed. I am on day two with the phone and so far it’s lived up to its name. What will Apple do next?

Mafia Games for the IPhone and IPod Touch

For the gamer on the go, the iphone is perhaps the best available gaming platform. It is compact, stylish and has far better graphics than most handheld systems. It has many good games you could consider purchasing, and quite a few good action-oriented games. iMafia, Mafia Live, iMob Online, Mafia Boss, and last but not least, Mafia: Respect and Retaliation. These games are perfect for any gamer with an interest in the Mafia.

One may not want to purchase all of these games at once, and they all have their pros and cons. They are all good games, however, and different games will suit different people.

iMafia is a game which places you in the role of a character, who is of course in the Mafia. You can play the role of a brawler, a mogul or a workaholic. These characters have strengths and weaknesses befitting their names. The brawler is good at fighting, the mogul is good at earning money and the workaholic regenerates energy quickly. This game is a lot like an RPG.

If you're looking for an MMORPG experience, but with the mafia, look no further than Mafia Live. This game places you in the criminal underworld of The City as you interact with other players and strive to become the Don of your family.

Like Mafia Live, iMob Online is a massively multiplayer game which is also quite enjoyable. Unlike the former, however, it has many issues with stability and is plagues with frequent server crashes. If you're looking for an online mafia game, it is best to look elsewhere.

Mafia Boss is in an entirely different genre, however. It resembles the party game called Mafia. It takes place in a village where the citizens have to find out who the mafioso are and the mafioso have to kill off the citizens. It is a fun game if you need a break from the more massive online games but don't want to limit yourself to a single player game. It will be a nostalgic experience for anyone who played the offline version of this game with friends.

Mafia: Respect and Retaliation is a game where you start out as a simple thug and have to advance up the ladder. It offers an exciting blend of MMORPG and strategy, as you grow to command more mafia thugs. Server stability has been an issue, so be prepared for the occasional crash. You can download it for free, so all of its negative features must be considered in light of the fact that it does not actually cost anything.

The recently released mafia games excel in several genres, with no game coming out as the undisputed winner. There are good points to every game, but in terms of overall game play, Mafia Live offers the most variety, as you can interact with many other players and recruit them to your family. If you want to concentrate on one character, you may consider purchasing iMafia. Consider the free game, too.

Apple iphone 4 16GB Black smartphone – AT&T

While everyone else was busy trying to keep up with iphone, we were busy creating amazing new features that make iPhone more powerful, easier to use, and more indispensable than ever. The result is iPhone 4. The biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhoneÂ…This one cool gadget!

With this 4th generation model we have seen more new features introduced than ever before. First of all, the Retina Display is a pleasure to use and once you use it you will come to view all lower resolution displays as sub-standard. The resolution bump in the outward-facing camera as well as the introduction of a user-facing camera is what really sold me on this product. The boost in battery life assures that you will no longer need to worry about your iPhone’s battery dying half-way through the day – unless you do a LOT of gaming on it! It utilizes the A4 chip, same as the iPad, so it’s plenty fast. It is thinner and lighter than previous models, the volume controls and vibrate switch have been made more durable, it has a built-in gyroscope, supports FaceTime video chat and on-the-go video editing via the iMovie app.

I cannot describe how much I’m enjoying this phone. It has to be the most perfectly designed piece of electronic equipment I’ve ever used. Totally intuitive, easy to use. Typing messages is uncannily accurate. 16 GB unit. The 32 GB is not necessary unless yo want to download a lot of movies. OhÂ… and the screen is absolutely crystal clear and tremendously high quality.

Top Tips On How To Avoid Paying Expensive Roaming Charges When In The EU

Millions of UK mobile consumers will travel throughout Europe each and every year. With their beloved smartphone at hand each and every day – with friends, family and Google at their fingertips it can be difficult to remember that the cost of sending a message or call whilst on holiday can be an expensive mistake.

Roaming charges throughout the EU and other continents are the travellers worst nightmare with many victims having already been sent a bill costing thousands of pounds. Fortunately, UK travellers are getting a better deal with the EU parliament launching new proposals that will improve roaming regulations for all UK travellers. The regulations that came into force on the 1st July 2012, have helped reduce the cost of messaging, calling and data roaming charges. Also enforcing service providers to implement stricter rules by placing a cap on the cost of calls and mobile data used whilst abroad and also increasing clarity for consumers.

With plans on cost reducing throughout the next two years, there is hope that it may be possible to access mobile internet on holiday and not have to worry about an enormous bill on your return. By the end of 2014 calls in the EU plan to be capped at €0.19 per minute. Messaging is set to be capped at €0.06, and data roaming also dropping to a surprising €0.20 per megabyte.

But in the mean time, for those about to leave soon there are many alternatives out there that can help reduce the amount spent on contacting those you love whilst on holiday. Even reducing the amount so that it becomes absolutely 100% free.

Voice Over Internet Protocol

A much loved technological advancement that millions are unable to live without. Providing free calls and internet to millions all over the world. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) allows a computer or mobile device to conduct calls, text message and other forms of communication such as video chat. The only requirement is that a VoIP app or software program has been installed. Then an internet connection – with Wi-Fi being the preferred and easiest option to find when on holiday. Most are provided free at hotels or for a small cost. If this is not available then local cafe's are likely to provide complimentary internet access.

Depending on the app or software program, face-to-face calls can be achieved for free for an unlimited time. Most apps for smartphones provide a text messaging service that can be used when connected to a Wi-Fi connection. The only requirement is that both parties have the same app installed, but this should be no problem with some advanced planning.

International Calling Cards and Access Numbers

Another alternative to using VoIP and Wi-Fi, depending on the location of your travels, it's possible to encourage family and friends to contact you. International calling cards and access numbers can provide instant and cheap calls from a landline or mobile phone – as long as the call is made from the UK. Calling cards provide versatility with many different amounts available, for example £5, £10 or even £50 can be spent on a pre-paid card to provide access to yourself. Another great solution can be to use online access numbers that are similar to calling cards but these work by dialling an access number before the actual contact number. This allows your service provider to bill you accordingly, with no strings attached. These calls can cost as little as 1p per minute from both a landline and mobile phone. Making cheap calls to Bangladesh, Spain, Germany and hundreds of other countries around the world and not just in Europe almost free. Giving friends and family no excuse not to contact you and keep in regular contact throughout your holiday.

Rather than make a few tweaks to the 3GS, Apple has made a completely new phone. In terms of hardware, improvements have been made in just about every area including the handset itself, the camera, and the screen.

The superb 5 mega pixel digital camera utilises a pixel configuration of 2592x 1944 resulting in superb quality still images. The camera comes with a comprehensive package of image enhancing features such as Autofocus, touch focus and an LED flash, as well as numerous downloadable apps for photo editing. The camera can also shoot HD video in 720p 30 frames per second, with an LED video light and video geo-tagging.

The aesthetics of the handset are also completely different to its predecessor. The iPhone 4 is slimmer, and slightly squarer and arguably more modern looking. Gone is the plastic casing of the last two iPhones. It is now manufactured from metal and strengthened glass with a steel band running around the edge of the handset which actually doubles up as the antenna.

Arguably one of the most impressive features of the iPhone 4 is the LED-backlit IPS TFT capacitive touchscreen. If offering a great user user experience when navigating the iOS 4 UI, it is highly responsive thanks to a 1 GHz Apple A4 processor. Apple has dubbed the screen the “retina” display, as the pixel resolution of 640x 960 is actually higher than can be perceived by the naked eye. This results in a screen which can display HD photos and video footage, making the iPhone 4 a breathtaking multimedia device. The screen also features an accelerometer and proximity sensor, and is made from scratch resistant glass.

Either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage is provided as standard, essentially eliminating the need for a micro SD card slot. Therefore even the basic 16GB model is ideal for storing files such as a music collection, which can be played by the built in iPod facility.

The iPhone 4 is great for browsing the web, with HSDPA and Wi-Fi providing the optimum levels of connectivity dependent upon location and signal strength. GPRS and EDGE give the handset it connectivity to cellular networks, and access to the AppStore allows users to browse and download apps from every imaginable category.

Whatever you are looking for in a smartphone, the iPhone 4 is sure to be a great choice for you. The manufacturer certainly knows how to build a smartphone; after all, millions of customers can’t be wrong!

The top of the handset accommodates a 3.5mm audio jack, as well as the keypad lock/power key. The left side of the phone has volume and mute switches, whilst the bottom of the phone has the USB/charger port. The front of the phone is dominated by the large retina touchscreen, with the home button located just below this. The corners of the phone are slightly more angular than the previous iphone, and it is also slimmer at 9.3mm, making it one of the thinnest phones available.

The screen is an impressive feature, utilising retina technology allowing HD to be displayed in all its glory. A pixel layout of 640x 960 allows this thanks to its ability to display up to 16 million colours. This makes for unsurpassed levels of clarity and quality when viewing video and photos. The touchscreen aspect of the screen is also among the most advanced available, utilising TFT capacitive touchscreen technology with virtually no lag, tanks to the powerful Apple A4 1GHz processor, the same processor as found in the iPad.

The AppStore allows endless possibilities when it comes to customisation, productivity and entertainment. Standard applications include iTunes and iPod for music playing, YouTube and Google Maps Apps as well as a whole host of other features.

There are now hundreds of thousands of Apps to choose from, so users can truly make their Apple iPhone 4 their own, so it can be whatever the user wants it to be.

Getting a Smartphone is a Smart Move

If you haven't yet purchased your first smartphone, then you may not know what you're missing out on. smartphones have exploded in popularity just in the past two or three years, largely due to the success of the Apple iphone and the Google Android mobiles. Although you may not think that a smartphone is a necessity, it is a pretty smart move to trade in your old mobile and get a new smartphone. Let's take a look at some of the advantages of upgrading to a smartphone.

One benefit to upgrading to a smartphone is that you will be able to check your email anytime, anywhere. This can be tremendously beneficial if you like to keep in touch with your friends and family on a regular basis through email. It is also important if you use email for your business. Normally, you would have to wait until you got home to find out if anyone had contacted you, but now you will be able to check your email in your automobile, in the park, and even while you are walking down the street.

Although checking your email is great, perhaps the greatest benefit to purchasing a smartphone is that you will have access to the full Internet. You might have tried to access the Internet on an older mobile phone and been completely unimpressed by how it was rendered. Older mobile phones used a watered-down form of the Internet called WAP. Now, you can access the Internet on your smartphone, and it looks just as it would if you were to access it on your computer at home. If a question pops into your mind that you don't know the answer to, then you no longer have to simply shrug your shoulders if you have a smartphone. You can start looking up answers on a search engine like Google, Bing, or Yahoo.

If you like to play games, then you'll probably never be able to put your new smartphone down. There are thousands of games to choose from in nearly every category that you can imagine. If you enjoy playing Solitaire on your computer, then why not get a smartphone so that you can begin playing on the go?

There is no doubt that it is a smart move to purchase a smartphone. Even better, you can often get it for a reduced price if you sell your old mobile for some cash.
