Logitech's free Touch Mouse app turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a keyboard and trackpad for your computer

Touch Mouse [iTunes link] is a free iPhone / iPod Touch application from Logitech that turns your iDevice into a wireless keyboard and trackpad for your Windows or Macintosh computer.

Touch Mouse works by relying on a small server...

Cydia creator releases tracking opt-out for jailbroken iPods and iPhones

Opened Cydia on your jailbroken iPod Touch or iPhone today? If so, you probably noticed an item on the front page about PrivaCy "Opt-Out." Recently there's been a lot of talk about app developers like Pinch Media harvesting analytics from users of their applications. There are plenty of good reasons for them to do this -- such as learning how to make their applications better. Still, some people...

TouchDrive gives you full access to iPhone/iPod in My Computer

Sure, plugging in your iPhone or Touch gives you access to its DCIM folder, but that's pretty much where the easy file management ends. For more complete access, grab TouchDrive - it's a handy, unobtrusive way to manage your files.

DLS Exclusive: sneak peek at LastPass for the iPhone

I've been using the LastPass bookmarklet for a while now to securely access my password vault from my iPod Touch. It gets the job done, and it's certainly much easier than re-entering all my passwords into Safari. Yesterday, I received an email from LastPass' Joe Siegrist with some exciting news: they've been quietly working on an iPhone app, and were ready to let me take it for a test drive. So...

Torrenting iPhone 3.0 firmware: a cautionary tale

You probably know that installing a copy of the new iPhone 3.0 firmware that you grabbed off a torrent site is illegal, but you should also know that it's a royal pain in the butt. Users on iPhone forums are discovering the hard way that a copy of 3.0 is no good unless you're a registered developer, so it can be unlocked on your device. Otherwise you're in for a world of hurt, with hacky...

Apple loosens restrictions on alt web browsers for the iPhone

The iPhone App Store may be filled with games, productivity apps, and umm... other utilities. But up until recently there was one thing that you couldn't find in the App Store: web browsers that would compete with the Safari browser that comes with the phone. But over hte past day, at least four alternative web browsers have shown up with prices ranging from free to about $2. The browsers add...

What's really on your iPhone? Find out with iPhone Backup Extractor

When you back up your iPhone or iPod Touch, iTunes can use the backup to do a restore, but not much else. It's nice when Apple's stuff "just works," but what if you want to see inside the black box and interact with the data on your phone? This is especially important for developers, who can fix bugs a lot more easily if they can look at a user's backup to figure out what's causing problems with...

Use an iPhone or iPod Touch in disk mode with DiskAid

One of the first things that iPhone and iPod Touch users noticed was the lack of a built-in "disk mode," where your device would appear on the desktop as a drive that you could use for file storage. Other iPod models even had a setting to specify how much of their storage space should be used for music, and how much should be used for disk mode, but the latest and greatest ones didn't. But thanks...

Orb Networks to let you stream media from home to your iPhone

The Register reports that streaming media company Orb Networks plans to announce support for the iPhone and iPod touch this week. Orb is sort of like the software version of the Slingbox. You install a client on your home PC and then you can login from pretty much any device with a web browser and stream your music, picture, and video collection over the internet to a remote computer or mobile...
