  • New Features in iPhone Firmware 3.1 beta 3
    Firmware 3.1 beta 3 (build 7C116a ) went live yesterday along with the associated SDK (build 9M2808). These betas available for developers registered in the iPhone Developer Program gives us a good look at what is next in Apple's iPhone firmware.

    3.1 beta 3 allows video to be sent via email.



    Other updates to beta 3 include a baseband update to 5.11.04, various tweaks to APIs, and tethering usage feature added.

      Apple. I am guessing we haven't seen the last of you. If you do come back you better lay low because if you are noticed you will be banned on sight.

      Awww
      Luckily we don't get to many idiots on here so it is a shame to miss it.
      It never ceases to amaze me how many warnings you mods give them before wielding the banhammer....

      ok... ill admit i have used the cracked apps quite a few times... but i garauntee i went back on the app store, or connected my ipod to itunes and downloaded the legitimate file, hencewhich charges my c.c. ill admit, i didnt for a while, but that is reasons of my own, and no offense to any dev's but you can't demand payment for a service that we know nothing of...


      as a support... would you buy a product you saw the box for, a gaggle of customers standing around supporting and critizing, and before you even got to turn the box over to READ what it did.. you were being pushed to pay to remove the sticker covering the details!?

      btw.. play then pay.. thats all i know and all i will do.

      Watching this thread with interest. Both sides have valid points to make.

      For me, it should be about fairness.

      It is not fair to the developers if you really like the software and continue to use it without paying. Conversely it is not fair to the users to have to pay just to try out.

      I have personally paid up to 5 finance applications, all bull **** and useless to me despite the high ratings, before I found the one that I eventually used. Same for a my golf scoring software, where I had purchased three before settling down to the one that is useable for me. Is that fair for me?

      I would say that there must be a way to try out the full featured applications before buying. No two way about it.

      Many of us know that in more than 90% of the cases, we downloaded a free application just for a few seconds before removing it because we're curious that it does, and often because it does not work. So, are we to pay for those?

      I hope all Apple store applications could be downloaded for free for at least one week for testing purposes, after that it will stop working unless paid for.

      Another possibility is to have a money back guarantee for our purchase within 30 days. I have personally purchased too many applications which should not have been purchase, including some from Cydia store. If it is real merchandise, consumers have the right to return the purchase in most developed countries, why not the software? If they allow that, more than half of my purchases would have been returned.

      Another aspect to this issue is the pricing of the software itself. I don't see any logic in cracking a 99 cent application, unlike a really expensive one. I have seen doctors (with plenty of disposable income one would think) using cracked version of medical application because it charges a few hundred dollars every year, making it too attractive to pirate it. Human nature here.

      We live in a world where morality is given scan regard. Little morality among business leaders, government, or even religious organisation. Everyone is out to prosper their own pocket. So, how do we expect poor little guys on the street to exercise morality when option exist to get it free rather than paying a hugh amount for it?

      I can agree with a trial as well...but I would only give a 3 time use trial...after using an app 3 times you should know well enough if you like the app

      I agree with a money back guarantee after 10 days

      At least a lite version would be nice. I have wasted so much money buying crap apps. Most are good enough to keep I guess. I have maybe 30-40 apps in my iTunes library and I use maybe 8 on my phone. But that's me.

      Nothing, cracked Appstore apps are already running using the same method as Cydia apps--plenty of them are installed by cydia now (not to mention icy) and reside in the same folder alongside your favorite cydia apps. I do not say this is right or wrong, but let us not let our anger delude us. Pirates are not going anywhere. No need to take it personally--be glad they left the original when they made off with the copy.

      There absolutely are. If it is not against the rules of mmi, I'll post a screenshot. Rather not name sources publicly--Im really not trying to spread piracy.
