  3. There’s No App for That: Adventures in Conserving Old Tech · SFMOMA

    About the difficulties of starting up a mint iPhone 1 and exhibiting it as a working thing. And HyperCard. (via @antimega)

  4. Photography, hello — Software ate the camera, but freed the photograph by Craig Mod

    So many quotable bits. And it’s about more than cameras. About the uncomfortable but fruitful position of straddling technological shifts. About the value of a new product that simplifies only a tiny number of steps. About the importance of the network to story-telling.

  5. External Microphones for iPhone 5, 4S, iPad and iPod Touch Audio input | Life is a Prayer.com

    A good roundup of this stuff, although from 2011. I’d like to find a similar thing a bit more recent. Still, always nice to see something quite thorough.

  6. “Peter Thiel pulled an iPhone out of his jeans pocket and held it up. “I don’t consider this to be a…”

    For the thought exercise of comparing the “breakthroughness” and impact of the Apollo programme and the iPhone, and Paul’s (for him) almost contrary (but not wrong) position.

  7. Ratchet

    “Prototype iPhone apps with simple HTML, CSS and JS components.” Seems really nice. Less extensive than something like jQuery Mobile, but looks nice and simple to get something up and running quickly.

    A handy, free Adobe Lightroom plugin that makes it simple to export albums of photos to a folder that iTunes can then sync with your iPhone/iPad.

  9. Ulmon Offline Maps and Tourist Travel City Maps & Guides

    Meant to link to this a while back. CityMaps2Go was a really nice offline map viewer for iPhone while I was on holiday. Vector-based, so good detail, and no roaming charges.

  10. Implementing a Fixed Position iOS Web Application - Google Mobile Developer Products - Google Code

    Brilliant: how to (a) make page elements fixed on iOS Safari (which doesn’t acknowledge position:fixed, grrrr) and (b) do scrolling with momentum. Gmail in iOS Safari is very swish.

    What it says. Could be handy. (via Daring Fireball)

  12. Is Mobile Affecting When We Read? « Read It Later Blog

    Interesting graphs of when ReadItLater users read stuff online, whether on desktop, iPhone or iPad. I definitely read less on my computer now I have an iPad. (via Kottke)

  13. Avatron Software: Air Display

    Six quid for this, but I had to give it a go (two screens aren’t enough!). Feels like magic: a wireless screen! But updating (eg, dragging windows) is pretty jerky and it can use 10-25% of my MacBook’s CPU when I’m dragging stuff on it, 15% if something is updating frequently (like Activity Monitor). Around 2% when idle. But could be very handy for some things.

  14. Momento Is Perhaps The Perfect Passive Diary App

    A few people have mentioned this (article via Blech). It really is a very, very good iPhone app — aggregates your feeds from many services, displays them nicely in a diary, lets you export all the aggregated data. More than worth £1.19.

  15. My First Week with the iPhoneBehind the Curtain | Behind the Curtain

    I’ve seen this ecstatic report by a blind person about their new iPhone linked to from a few places. Forget your iPhone-fatigue and skip to the last few paragraphs where he describes using an app (Color ID) which speaks the colours the device’s camera “sees”. Beautiful.

  16. Snoopy | View-source bookmarklet for iPad, iPhone and other mobile devices

    Very handy. Also rather nice on desktop browsers too. (via Tim Brayshaw)

  19. CSS for iPhone 4 (Retina display) « Thomas Maier – web & communication designer

    Including CSS only for devices with the iPhone 4’s pixel resolution. (This is all getting more complex than all that copying with NS4, IE5, Mac IE5, etc, etc.) (via Daring Fireball)

  20. Hog Bay Software Blog - PlainText

    An iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad app that lets you read/write text files and sync them with Dropbox. (via Preoccupations)

  21. TouchScroll, a scrolling layer for WebKit mobile [update] « Uxebu.com – the Ajax and JavaScript Experts

  26. PhoneView for iPhone - iPhone Disk Mode, SMS, Voicemail, Call History, Music, Photos, Notes Access - Ecamm Network

    Among other things, lets you export all of your iPhone SMSes. $20 saved me spending more time messing around with binary plist files, sqlite, etc.

  27. Barac consulting | Notes on designing the Guardian iPhone app

    Always good to read about design processes, and this helps me understand why some of the things I find slightly annoying about the otherwise good app are the way they are. (via Simon Willison)

  28. Cadence | your music. your motion.

    Mainly for Cadence Desktop, which claims to apply BPM values to your iTunes songs. I’ve heard that before, but you never know. (via Lee)

    Sounds like an interesting, free, online book for those of us unlikely to learn real programming any time soon. (via Infovore)

  30. iPhone / iPod Touch Backup Extractor

    Need to try this out. I’d like an archive of my SMSes and this might help me extract them.

  31. How people really use the iPhone - SlideShare

    Presentation on a company’s user testing with iPhones. One thing not mentioned: although some people made mistakes, did they immediately learn from them, or did they keep making the same mistakes? Big difference I think. (via Chris Heathcote)

    Great practical advice for building a website for iPhones. (via Infovore)
