Sydney Public Transport App Wrap-Up for iOS

Since Tom and Terence are writing these things, it’s only logical for me to write one about Sydney!

While we have constantly mocked Windows Phone for having some very sub-par applications, there are little gems that are really brilliant. So, here are some of the top applications – both web and mobile apps – that will help you get around Melbourne’s transport system. At least it’s a bit easier to understand than Sydney’s own […]

Sparrow for iPhone launches

By on

It’s been a while since it was first announced, but Sparrow, the fancy and unique email client for Mac, is now available on the iPhone and iPod touch. As with the desktop version, the iPhone app looks like it’s trying to give the default Mail app, the Gmail iPhone app and any other webapp or native apps a run for their money, with an intuitive, future-proof UI and a fully-native […]

Melbourne Public Transport Android App Wrap-up

Recently, after upgrading to a usable phone with Ice Cream Sandwich on it, I have been on the hunt for useful apps. One of these hunts was for apps that could help with my commutes, so after hunting around the marketplace and questioning friends, here is what I use to help me get around. By the way, these apps are Melbourne, Australia specific so apologies if this bares no relevance […]

Windows Phone 7 SDK to include multi-tasking, Camera API

By on

Windows Phone 7 users will be excited by this news (I know Stewart will), as Microsoft has announced an update to its application development toolkit for the mobile OS, which will include access to the Camera API and multi-tasking. While the iOS has these features, multi-tasking was only available since version 3.0, so it’s nice to see Microsoft pushing this out. Other additions to the toolkit include deeper integration with […]

Twitter tells developers: No more Twitter Clients

TECHGEEK Weekly 30: Death by SMS

Wow. We’ve reached 30 episodes – who knew from the beginning we would actually have reached this far. Anyway, we discuss the IPv4 running out of addresses, the new PSP2 by Sony and the Egypt Internet Blackout. We also find out that we are really good at debating points of view, so you may find this episode to be longer than what we usually have our podcasts Sorry if we […]

DeepEnd brings a 3D homescreen to your Jailbroken iPhone

By on

There are heaps of cool things that are exclusive to owners of Jailbroken iPhone’s and this is definately one of them. Developed by Ryan Petrich, DeepEnd is a free Cydia app that uses the iPhone’s accelerometer to add a 3D effect to your homescreen. When you move your device, the background moves with it, producing the effect. Now, this has been done before by another Cydia app called 3DBoard, but […]

Check-in with Foursquare… in Firefox?

By on

Foursquare appears to have quite a following here in Australia (and apparently, in North Korea and up in space), but for some cases you don’t want to go and whip out your phone because you may have a crappy connection (via Vodafone) or happen to be so damn lazy. Well not any more. A little plugin called Foursquarefox takes the hassle away of checking in and puts it in your […]

We also had crazy Harvey Norman trying to put GST on our purchases online, Facebook being valued at $50 billion and the Mac App Store launch – and hack. And yes, it is the first hour long podcast – and the only one as it seems. But, hey, […]
