Few products have generated the kind of hype that the iPhone has. Its beautiful design and large multi-touch screen are irresistible. Although its interface is beautifully designed, some of us want to put a little something extra in it to suit our style, personality and profession and to further beautify this magical masterpiece.
What's the best iPhone game so far? We bet you didn't just shout out " Dizzy Bee " – for all its charms, the motion-puzzler isn't one of the most high-profile iPhone titles on the App Store. However, PocketGamer.biz has just published its first iPhone Game Quality Index , tracking reviews on six websites (including this one) to find out what the critics thought was the best iPhone game in the third quarter of this year. And yes, Dizzy Bee from Igloo Games comes top, with an average rating of 8.67, narrowly beating out Gameloft's Asphalt 4: Elite Racing and Apple's own Texas Hold'em .
Posted 12/09/2008 at 11:56am | by Mac|Life Staff It seems like only yesterday a young Steve Jobs sheepishly took the stage and announced that the iPhone and iPod touch would have native third-party applications. We danced in the streets when we heard the news. We figured a few hundred apps would be released.
Connect the iPod to a power source (computer/wall charger) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, then... ...immediately switch to holding down the Select and Play/Pause buttons.
Editor’s Note: The following article is excerpted from the second edition of the Macworld iPod and iTunes Superguide , a 78-page, $12.95 PDF with the very best iPod and iTunes information from the experts at Macworld and Playlist. This new edition, updated for iTunes 7 and Windows compatibility, shows you how to import music from CDs, cassette tapes, and LPs, organize and manage your music files, convert DVDs for playback on a video iPod, and more. In this excerpt, senior editor Christopher Breen looks at moving copies of your music from an iPod to your computer.
by Adam Pash In my self-sustaining iPod feature, I made a point of calling out iTunes for being bloated and a bit annoying at times. One of my biggest beefs with iTunes has always been its inability/outright refusal to monitor one or more folders for new music and videos. Oh no , far be it from Apple to encourage you to get your media through any other means BUT iTunes. Personally, I'm not someone who likes managing every aspect of my music from inside iTunes. In fact, I prefer managing my files and folder structure all on my own , if you can believe it.
Get songs and playlists off the iPhone Apple's iTunes software makes it dead-simple to copy music onto your iPod , but when it comes to moving files in the opposite direction--from the iPod to your computer--there's no obvious solution. I get an e-mail on this topic at least once a week, usually from someone who's had his laptop stolen or watched helplessly as his hard drive crashed. After an incident like that, it can be a relief to know your music collection (or at least part of it) is backed up on an iPod.
iPod into Diagnostic Mode Quickly find out if your iPod has a hardware problem Even though you are probably not aware of it, virtually everything you own, which uses electricity, has a diagnostic mode. Everything from your cell phone to your dishwasher can tell you what is wrong with it, or at least give you a clue, if you know the secret combination of buttons to push.
It took quite a while for me to come around, but iTunes eventually changed the way that I listen to music (and download podcasts) on my PC. I was a long, long, long time WinAmp user, and until iTunes released a version that minimized to my system tray, and I could find a way to control iTunes with keyboard shortcuts, I wasn’t interested. Well, the first problem was dealt with a while ago, and for my second problem I found iTunesKeys , a program dedicated to solving iTunes’ woefully missing keyboard shortcut access. But, after using iTunes for awhile, I realized that while Apple has given us an incredibly elegant and fun to use media player, its developers suffer from some serious delusions that iTunes users will never make mistakes, or decide to delete songs. I can’t quite fathom why you would have an application show a [!] symbol when it finds a missing file, yet offer no way to actually remove the reference to that missing file.

DMF Apple's iTunes Music Store has been hailed as "the future of music" so many times that you might conclude the future has already been written. But a few statistics we gleaned at this week's Digital Music Forum (DMF), held only days after Apple boasted of its billionth download, help put it all in perspective. The first, and most important statistic, is that Apple has taken just short of three years to reach one billion downloads.
