How To Turn On The iPhone Battery Meter

How To Turn On The iPhone Battery Meter

You may have seen the new battery meter on screen shots of the iPhone recently, and wonder how you enable it because it’s not under Settings > General like you would expect it to be.  Well, it’s buried a little bit further than that, and it only works with the iPhone 3.0 software on 3G S (not 3G).

Find My iPhone: No App For That

Find My iPhone: No App For That

I’ve decided to start a new series of articles here at Appmodo called “No App For That” because even though there are tens of thousands of apps in the app store, I just don’t buy Apple’s marketing campaign of “Yup, there’s an app for that”, especially when even Apple is at fault for not having an obvious “app for that”.  The series kicks off with “Find My iPhone” and yup, there’s no app for that.

How To Upload Videos to Facebook from iPhone 3G S

With the release of the iPhone 3G S and the iPhone 3.0 software comes the ability to not only shoot 30fps VGA video, but also edit it while on the device.  You can then upload directly to YouTube or Mobile Me using the “Send to MobileMe” and “Send to YouTube” buttons, or send as an email attachment.  But what about other services like Facebook, Flickr, Blogger, MySpace, Picasa, Revver, Shutterfly, SmugMug, Viddler, Vimeo, WordPress, and all the others?  Here’s how to do it, and yes–there’s an App for that!

iPhone 3G S Launch This Week: What You Don’t Get

This Friday’s launch of the annual update to the iPhone is somewhat anti-climatic. Yes, the hardware is finally updated with more RAM and a faster CPU but its main update is to the operating system, which is also available for previous versions of the iPhone. Many key new features aren’t even available, which begs the question: why upgrade to the iPhone 3G S?

See The World On Your iPhone With Live Cams (Review)

There are an unbelievable number of free, live public webcams on the Internet.  They all have different interfaces, require different browser plugins, and some are just difficult to use.  What if I told you that you could access them all, quite easily, from a simple single interface on your iPhone or iPod Touch.  And, in many cases, control them.

Camera Zoom: iPhone Gets Zoom Before 3.0 OS Update

The iPhone 3.0 OS update is due this summer and while updates to the camera, including a video record mode, are said to be included, that isn’t stopping the current crop of apps from pushing the envelope and making apps that squeeze every last ounce out of the current 2.0 phone from 2008.  Enter KendiTech, who has a few other apps in the app Store, but none has drawn the attention more than Camera Zoom which allows you to take photos like the built-in camera app, but with one enhancement: zoom!
