My wife is tired of coming home to a dark house, and I want something to fiddle with. I'm thinking about getting a "smart" setup of some sort to control the lights (details inside). What's the best overall solution? We're exclusively a Mac/iOS household. [more inside]
I like to listen to albums and playlists from my music collection on my iPhone. I don't need a streaming service, or radio, or recommendations, or social networks. I just want a simple user interface that lets me pick out an album (or maybe a playlist) and listen to it. Does such a thing exist for iOS? The built-in music app has gotten way too complicated, and does not work well for me or my family. [more inside]
Is there an easy way to track hours, tasks or projected completed, and also be able to add notes in a single app? [more inside]
I've become obsessed with the Health app on my iPhone. I get that it probably uses GPS to calculate how far I'm walking/running in a day. But how does it know with crazy precision, how many flights of stairs I've gone up? What else can I get it to do, and how can I get the most out of this app? [more inside]
I used to use and love an iOS app called GroupShot that helped you magically combine the good parts of multiple photos into one to help fix issues like when people don't smile or accidentally blink or when they aren't all looking at the camera at the same time. The app no longer works right and I can't find any others like it! Anyone know of any other apps out there that do that? [more inside]
Is there an equivalent of Instapaper or Pocket, but more or less optimized for saving and decluttering (long) email threads? (Gmail, specifically?) [more inside]
How do I remove deleted app history from iTunes? [more inside]
Part of a project I'm working on involves getting around 20 iPad 2s to all be the same. I'm not an Apple person at all, and this is the first time I've seriously used either the iDevice ecosystem or iTunes in any real capacity. Is there a way to make this as painless as possible? [more inside]
If I make an app using an app builder like Apple Developer, Buzztouch, Mit App Inventor or Andromo, for example, who owns the app? [more inside]
Looking for top notch, detailed but fun games to play on an iPod Touch. Games like Tower Defense (Lost Earth) or the Angry Birds series, where you can make progress and pick up from where you left off. Not games like Temple Run/Jetpack Joyride/Robot Unicorn Attack where you start from scratch every time (even if you do get upgrades or badges). I am not really interested in Plants vs Zombies or Tiny Wings for whatever reason.
iPhone traffic app, with push traffic alerts? [more inside]
Is making documents for an iPad really that hard? [more inside]
Questions about iPad app development. [more inside]
Somebody released a commercial iPhone app that's feeding from licensed content scrapped from our website. How can we report this to Apple? [more inside]
This is a followup question about printing from an iPhone/iPad app: the original question can be found here. Blazecock Pileon and GuyZero (and anyone else), please respond! [more inside]
How can I stream my music library to my iPhone? [more inside]
I'd like to keep track of iPhone/iPod app prices. Are there any websites that display price info, such as whether an app has gone up or down in price?
I have a Flash game that I'd like to port over to the iPhone but I don't have the time nor the patience to do it myself. Are their any companies out there that will develop the application for you, for a price?
I'm wondering if there are Apple-imposed limitations that would prevent this no-brainer iPhone app from being created. I'd love to be able to go to one place on my iPhone to turn off/on all the power-sucking tidbits: WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G, etc. As it is now, you have to drill down through all parts of the interface to access that stuff. Does Apple allow an app to access the WiFi on/off function, for instance? [more inside]
I just sold out and got an iPhone 3gs. After some amount of pain and a few virtual images and iTunes installs, I finally got all of my contacts synced over, and I have discovered that I can't sync from multiple PVs like I used to. Not a problem- except for apps. [more inside]
Apple App Store Filter: A few weeks ago I stumbled upon an obscure blog that appeared to be written by an anonymous Apple App Store reviewer. I think it was linked to via Gizmodo or Engadget 2-3 weeks ago. Now I can't find it. [more inside]
I love Ferry Halim's Orisinal games. What are some games for the iPhone with a similar beautiful aesthetic and simple gameplay? Bonus points, as always, for free or cheap.
As has been done with previous similar contests, has anyone posted a regression that estimates when Apple will hit the 1B mark on their recent app download contest? (I'm not talking about when Apple's web JS counter is programmed to flip early tomorrow morning.)
Is there an app/script/somethin'-sweet I can install on my Mac(s) that will allow me to organize my email INBOX? [more inside]
The App store on the iPhone is so cluttered it's practically unbrowsable for me. Things are only a little bit better on the desktop version of iTunes. For the most part I've been finding cool applications as they are mentioned in some of the blogs I already read. Surely there are some websites out there that keep up a good overview of the best iPhone apps. What sites are you using to find good apps for the iPhone?
I'm already to used to my new Mac's keyboard. Unfortunately, I have to use XP at work. Is there a (preferably free) keyboard remapping program for XP? The only one I've found is a six buck download via PCmag.com.
