iPhone Users List - Early Late Edition


Welcome to another late edition of the the SRG iPhone Users List. This weeks apps come by request. I encourage everyone to post comments, questions, and requests via The SRG InfoTech Blog.

The user list continues to grow this week. We have now reached 35 iPhone users. I expect that number to approach 50 after Christmas. To ease the burden of deploying several iPhones at once, Apple has released the iPhone Configuration Utility. This will allow geeks like me to create a URL where you automatically download and install all the settings for an SRG iPhone configuration.

One of the many flaws in the iPhone is it's inability to use the keyboard in landscape mode while typing emails and text messages. The inability to cut & paste is another. This week I'll talk about apps that solve those problems.

PasteBud is a web based app that allows you to cut & paste on the iPhone. I've tinkered a little bit with this app, and it is essentially worthless. They have taken a basic computing function (cut & paste) and made it so complex that it's not worth doing. I'd only recommend trying this out if your are absolutely desperate to cut & paste on your iPhone.

The request from this week was for an app that allows you to type in landscape mode when composing emails and text messages. Out of the box, the iPhone is not capable of this. Through the magic of third party software this function has been implemented. For whatever reason, there is no single app that enables this in email and text messaging. You need separate apps for each function. For email you have Big Keyboard Email, & TouchType. For text mesaging you have SMS Touch, and SMS Landscape Big Keyboard. Apparently TouchType ($.99) and SMS Touch ($4.99) are the most popular of these apps. The developer claims they were not bundled into one app because it was more costly to develop the SMS version, and he wanted to keep the price down on the email version. I have not tried either of these apps. If you do, please let us know what you think.

I downloaded the $0.99 Touch Type for composing emails in landscape. I've been using it for a few weeks, and I'd say it was worth the $0.99 because it does allow you to speed up your typing, and it's nice that you don't lose what you've typed if you get a call or a text in the middle of typing.

Recently, online hackers secondhand Twitter to tweeted links to a
artificial version of some sort of Twitter webpages.
Your very own right consumers have always been women at
his or her mid-twenties to beginning 40s, whom lately
provided beginning; it works complete-duration tasks and now have very little free time
in order to on their own. A perfect example is if perhaps you were a great
professional inside ever-increasing large tomato's, you could consume society through the process of sowing towards
increasing, and then harvesting new tomato's.
