iPhone App – Update!

iPhone App News Roundup: June 21, 2008

Git along, little iPhones! TUAW readers keep sending us announcements about forthcoming iPhone App Store goodies that are in the works. Send us your tips about iPhone applications you plan on having in the App Store either at launch or shortly thereafter, and we’ll pass that info along to the rest of the world.

Here’s today’s roundup:

  • Cocoa Touch Games has two of a planned four “fun, simple, joyful” apps ready to go for the App Store launch. Bug Bounce and Cocoa Marbles will both be priced at $2.99.
  • Synthesis AG, developers of the SyncML platform and transmission media independent protocol for intelligent data synchronization, have announced a SyncML client for iPhone.
  • Lint Labs (great name!) has announced No. 2 (AKA HB in Europe), an app that lets you use a virtual pencil and eraser on the iPhone to sketch or take notes, then organize your work into books.
  • Jeffrey Grossman of movies.app fame is working on another great product, Currency. It’s a currency exchange application with over 50 different countries. Looks good, Jeff!
  • In the “it had better be a free app” category is Philip Corliss’s Bubble Wrap. It looks like a great stress relief tool.
  • Tom Cain of Smallware let us know about Solebon Solitaire for iPhone, a complete rewrite of their popular package for Palm OS.
  • Sol Robots, the offspring of Cortis Clark, is offering a free app to help you save money to buy that iPhone 3G. Save Benjis works with Finders Cheapers, a price comparison site, to let you find the lowest price on just about anything.
  • Steve Streza‘s Lockbox provides AES and SHA-1 level encryption and a unique gesture unlocking procedure to keep your notes and pictures secret. Expect it for less than $10 in the App Store.
  • LateNiteSoft has a jailbreak app called Sketches that is moving to the AppStore.
  • Right now it’s for jailbroken iPhones, but hopefully Make Your Day Media‘s Remind You will be heading to the App Store within a month. It turns the lock screen of your iPhone into an appointment list.
  • One more jailbreak app, textReader by James Beesley, will hopefully be scootin’ to the App Store soon.

Keep ’em coming, developers!

    do we get free maps with this iphone 3g?

  2. They should all be in the iPhone (like the original) and I assume will be updated by regular software updates. There is nothing worse than getting a good price on a GPS and then having to purchase NEW maps!!!
