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. Both contain all the material from the print editions, but there are no fancy UI effects here, compared to other magazines -- it's all nice and subtle touches to make the reading experience enjoyable....

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...

Bluefire Reader for iPhone and iPad lets you read public library e-books

Bluefire Reader is an e-reader app for the iPhone and iPad that, along with letting you read e-books in EPUB and PDF formats, has a unique twist compared to its competitors -- support for Adobe DRM. Not only that, but starting today, it supports the unique DRM used by public libraries, so you can download free e-books from hundreds of public library websites, transfer them to your iDevice using...

Skyfire is back in the App Store, made available 'in batches'

Skyfire, the new Flash video-capable browser for iOS which Sam reviewed yesterday, is back in the iTunes App Store. It was pulled by its developers a couple of days ago due to problems their transcoding servers had trying to cope with increased traffic demand. It looks like in the mean time they've managed to find a few more servers to shoulder the load and are now slowly making the app available...

Tumblr apps for iPhone and Android get revamped Dashboard

Tumblr has told Mashable that its mobile applications for iPhone and Android have received an update that overhauls their Dashboard functionality. The updated apps are set to go live today in the iTunes App Store and the Android Market. The mobile apps now have the complete functionality of the Web-based Tumblr Dashboard built in. The new Dashboard seamlessly presents users with photos,...

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,...

VLC's days in the iTunes App Store may be numbered

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...

PayPal for iPhone gets push notifications and local search

PayPal has launched version 3 of its iPhone application. The most important changes in it are support for push notifications and a search engine for local merchants. You can set up push notifications to happen whenever you send or receive money, purchase something through PayPal, or receive a request for money. Push notifications will not work on jailbroken devices or if your iPod touch is in...

One Week App - watch an iPhone app be created in one week

Sahil Lavingia has decided to do something a little different as he creates his next iPhone app: he's going to do it in public, and blog the process as he goes. He's also going to do it in a one-week marathon stretch, and has aptly named the project One Week App. This is both an interesting way for non-developers to gain a bit of an understanding about what goes into the app creation process, and...

Framed! - nice iphone app boredom buster

Framed! is a fun photo app for iPhone/iPod touch that allows you to drop your photos in 34 different scenes such as taxi billboard, album cover, wanted poster, cereal box, TV, etc. After you select the scene and input the text, you can share your creation via email or Facebook. At .99, this 4 star rated app is a pretty good investment as it will probably keep kids and tweens occupied for...

Google Mobile's updated iPhone app is worth a look

Google Mobile's iPhone app just got a small, but important, update, full of new features. Most iPhone users don't venture over to the app side of Google search, since the search bar is right there in Safari, but Google Mobile is actually pretty neat. Plus, the latest update allows you to open links in-app, instead of switching to Safari to view webpages. That one little tweak is enough to make...

5 ways to save money with an iPhone

On 12/28 I am eligible to switch phones and am rationalizing an iPhone purchase, which is all the more difficult as I just read David Ramsey's Total Money Makeover. The book advocates saving money and paring down expenses, so the $30 monthly data plan would definitely be in the con column. However, after reading 33 things you don't need if you buy an iPhone, I'm thinking I'll definitely come out...

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...

UrbanSpoon releases iPhone-native restaurant finder

One of the two big differences in the new iPhone 3G is the included GPS technology. Restaurant locator/review site UrbanSpoon knows this very well, and they've taken advantage of the GPS with an iPhone native app for UrbanSpoon. Without even having to tell it, it knows where you are, it knows where restaurants are, and it's ready to get food into your mouth. It gets more fun than that, though:...
