    The initial AppStore rating system allowed anyone to review the apps without purchasing which flooded the appstore with some stupid reviews by foolish people (no offense!).

    Awhile back, Apple introduced the new review system that allowed only the buyers to review an app in an effort to get the situation under control. While ...

    Back in January we covered ZumoDrive Beta cloud storage and then showed a first look of their iPhone App. As of earlier this week ZumoDrive has gone from beta to public and made some major updates to the service while they were at it.

    With the beta I had two major issues. The pricing was a concern with 70GB of cloud storage running a whopping $20.99/mo. Many others also voiced their opinions about the pricing and the ...

    Aside from the Cydia download to enable them there are many applications on the AppStore like Typing Genius ($0.99) and Spell Number (free) that enable these Emoji icons. Apple doesn't seem to like ...

    How bout CSI Miami full episodes streamed to your iPhone, legally... for free? CBS Interactive's TV.com give you just that. There aren't a ton of shows up yet (at least not full episodes), but CSI, Star Trek (the original!), and Gossip Girl (you know you've seen it) are all there.

    TV.com (its an app, AND a website!) allows you to create "feeds" of shows you'd like based on keywords. You ...

    Some time ago the folks at Manning sent me a handful of copies of iPhone in Action by Christopher Allen and Shannon Appelcline for review. After spending a few weeks reading through this book devoted to both Web and SDK development for the iPhone I can conclusively say that iPhone in Action is quite the useful iPhone development guide.

    Before going any further let me start off by saying iPhone in Action is not for the newcomer with zero developing experience. If you have zero experience with web ...

    So Boxee has been nearly my favorite program for the past few months thanks mostly to the inclusion of Hulu. I was even considering picking up a Mac mini or and Apple TV and ditching cable all together. When the news hit that Hulu was leaving Boxee I started looking for something new.

    Enter Plex. Plex is a media center that is very similar to Boxee. The latest build (.7.8 beta) which was released three days ago adds a feature to Plex called the App Store which is a place for the end user to navigate to and download extra ...
