How to have more than 148 apps in your iPhone

As you might know by now, your iPhone cannot handle more than 148 apps. That's too bad. There are so many apps on the AppStore that you would love to use the 16 Gigs of your iPhone to store them all. If your iPhone is jailbroken there is a solution called "categories" (available on Cydia). It allows you to create folders in which you can store your apps. You could basically have 148 folders with as many apps as you want.... It is a brand new iPhone world....

Apple drops the iPhone NDA

Apple has announced that they have dropped the iPhone Non-Disclosure Agreement :

"We have decided to drop the non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for released iPhone software.

We put the NDA in place because the iPhone OS includes many Apple inventions and innovations that we would like to protect, so that others don’t steal our work. It has happened before. While we have filed for hundreds of patents on iPhone technology, the NDA added yet another level of protection. We put it in place as one more way to help protect the iPhone from being ripped off by others.

However, the NDA has created too much of a burden on developers, authors and others interested in helping further the iPhone’s success, so we are dropping it for released software. Developers will receive a new agreement without an NDA covering released software within a week or so. Please note that unreleased software and features will remain under NDA until they are released.

Thanks to everyone who provided us constructive feedback on this matter."

App Store reviews…only for buyers.

If you were wondering who could write a review of an application sold on the App Store, the answer was, till recently, anybody. People were leaving reviews for applications without purchasing them. We're still wondering what the point of leaving a review of a product you did not event try is... Apple probably does too. They just put a requirement that users wanting to write a review about an application must purchase it first.
