Congratulations iPhone4Forum.net, you've just hit 1001 members! We would like to thank the entire mod team, writers and members for all of your contributions to the site. Our goal when building the site was to make the number one resource for the iPhone 4 and I believe we are on track to accomplish that! If you have any suggestions to make the site even better, please let us know.
A unique app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. You simply match elements to make new ones. You do this all the way up until you have 140 out of the 4 you originally started with. It's a great app for $.99.
Both Pocket-lint and Macworld have reported this week on what is claimed to be the first ever music video shot entirely on the iPhone 4. The artist is Canadian musician Steve Failows, who records under the name Flakjakt, and the song is Cacades. The video was shot entirely using the iPhone 4s built-in HD video recorder in just 1.3 days. It took 2 days to edit, using Final Cut Pro, meaning that it wasnt an entirely iPhone 4 produced project, but its still pretty impressive all the same.
As Pocket-lint points out, even if the video wasnt edited on the iPhone 4, the quality of the final product shows that the iPhone 4 can produce some truly impressive visuals. You also have to hand it to Steve and video director Marty Martin for having the brainwave of using...
As reported on this forum yesterday, AT&T was suspected of throttling 3G speeds in various regions in the US, including NYC, Boston, Minneapolis, and many more, with members of the Macrumors forum reporting ten-fold decreases in upload speed. Apparently, upload speeds are topping out at 100Kbps, which is way below what the HSPA-enabled iPhone 4 should be able to handle. According to the latest update on the issue on AppleInsider though, there has been no intentional throttling by AT&T.
AppleInsider says that it has learned that the drop in speed is due to an unintentional software glitch, connected to High-Speed Uplink Packet Access in certain parts of the United States. Although AT&T has still not made any form of official statement on the matter,...
As a part of OpenFeint's Free Game of the Day, Iron Commando Pro is free today. Now this game is not the prettiest looking one out there but I found it to be loads of fun. I'm a big fan of Metal Slug and Contra, this game had that and a bit of a FLASH feel to it. The game has 8 challenging stages that get more difficult as you go along. You play as the commando(who is a bit of a stick figure) and basically you "run and gun" just like a Contra game.
Well, what are you waiting for, the game is FREE today only, give it a shot.
The guys over at Obama Paceman ran a speed test comparing the iPhone 4 to the iPhone 3GS in browsing speeds. They ran both phones on their AT&T's 3G network with Wifi turned off. With no surprise, the iPhone 4 came out victorious with noticeable speeds. The following sites were tested:
On our previous System Failure, we reported that iTunes accounts were getting hacked/used to buy books from publisher "mycompany". Clayton Morris reports that only 400 accounts out of the 150 million on iTunes were affected by this. The iTunes servers, themselves, were in no danger in any way. So this must be due to spyware, keyloggers, etc. on peoples' computers. Scanning your computers at least once or twice a week is always a good habit. Apple is planning to upgrade their security so that you have to enter your 3 digit code...
Still out looking for an iPhone 4? Well, if you can dish out $20,000, Stuart Hughes will do you one better. After the 3GS Supreme that had a value of $3.2 million USD, $20k doesn't seem like much. The Diamond Edition iPhone 4 contains the following:
This video caught my eye today. Lee Morris of Fstoppers.com, decided to take a whole photo shoot with an iPhone 3GS. This video was made to show people that you don't need all of that fancy-shmancy photo equipment to be a good photographer. For us, this just makes us feel better because not only do we have iPhones, we have iPhone 4s with our 5MP cameras!
Fish Farm is a really gorgeous looking aquarium app thats out today for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Its free to download as well, which makes it even more appealing, although you do have the option to make in-app purchases.
Fish Farm features over 75 3D fish and sharks that swim around and up to the screen and make faces at you, just like the real thing. Theyll even respond if you tap on the glass. You can customise your tank with over 50 decorations and backgrounds, and as you level up and unlock new items by raising, breeding and selling your fish, you can maintain up to 12 separate salt and freshwater aquariums at the same time.
