The Economist comes to the iPhone and iPad, hopes to get a million readers in three years

Joining many other print publishers, The Economist has just launched apps for iOS, PaidContent reports. There are two separate apps available, one optimized for the iPad, and one for the iPhone.

Google Voice app for iOS available now

The official Google Voice application for the iPhone has finally arrived in the iTunes App Store. After more than a year from Apple's rejection of Google's first Voice app for the iPhone, almost ten months since Google responded with an HTML5-based mobile Web app, and about 6 weeks since it was reportedly approved by Apple, it's here. The app has all the features you'd expect, including...

Skyfire, the new Flash video-capable browser for iOS which Sam reviewed yesterday, is back in the iTunes App Store.

PayPal rushes to fix a critical security flaw in its latest iPhone app

PayPal has uncovered a critical security flaw in the latest version of its iPhone application, that it released last week. This flaw allows a hacker to access users' accounts, and their account passwords -- and stems from the fact that the app doesn't check the authenticity of the digital certificate for PayPal's website while communicating with it. For someone to be able to access your data,...

Rémi Denis-Courmont, one of the primary developers of open-source media player VLC (Videolan Client), has announced that Videolan has sent Apple a formal notification of copyright infringement regarding the terms under which its iOS app is being distributed in the iTunes App Store. The root of the issue is this: VLC is distributed under the GPL, while VLC's iOS app is distributed by...

AppMakr makes annoying branded iPhone apps even easier to create

Before I get started here, I have to say that I don't blame PointAbout one bit for coming up with AppMakr.

PandoraBox provides alternate App Store view on iPhone

PandoraBox [iTunes link] is like a free alternative iTunes App Store for iPhone apps. Probably its most remarkable feature is that it helps you find iPhone apps that are on sale, something that the iPhone's App Store oddly neglects to do. It can tell you about apps that are temporarily free, or ones that have been discounted. It also contains tabs for Featured apps, New Apps, Favorites, and a...

Jay's Favorite iPhone Apps: Shush

I don't know how I ever lived without Shush. It's an algorithmic white noise generator you can keep in your pocket, and it shows how versatile the iPhone is. I first gave it a shot because it was written by one of my favorite developers, Daniel Jalkut of Red Sweater Software, but I quickly found I needed white noise everywhere. My neighbors were throwing a noisy party that kept me awake. I hit...

Bloom: Brian Eno's ambient music app for iPhone

Brian Eno is one of my favorite composers, so I was thrilled to hear that he was releasing a new composition tool for the iPhone. It's called Bloom, and it lets you generate, play and visualize ambient music. It's hard to explain how this works, but you basically tap the screen in different places to generate sounds. The sounds you play repeat periodically to form a composition. Because the notes...

There's been some debate about whether Apple's ability to remotely disable apps on users' iPhones is for real. At Download Squad, we've had readers both affirming and denying the "kill switch" rumors. For a while, it seemed like an app blacklist had been found, but it turned out that it was just a list of apps that aren't allowed to access Core Location. Steve Jobs finally ended the debate today...
