iPhone app proves users are willing to pay

http://www.guardian.co.uk

UK's first official paid-for news application has been downloaded almost 70,000 times in its first month.Are people willing to pay for a news app on their iPhone? In the UK, news organisations have been sceptical, and offered their applications for free, among them Sky News, whose app launched in May and has just passed 1m downloads.

iPhone apps from the Financial Times, the Telegraph and the Independent are all free, with the Indy saying its application has been downloaded 59,000 times since its launch last August.

However, figures released today prove that iPhone users are willing to pay for the Guardian app: it has been downloaded almost 70,000 times in its first month, and is currently at number 26 in Apple's UK App Store chart.

Although it costs £2.39, it has been downloaded exactly 68,979 times since its launch on 14 December. It was originally only available in the UK, Ireland and the US, but now launched in most European countries, as well as Australia, Canada and the US.

Weight loss app for iPhone?

Weight loss and the iPhone
Can your iPhone or iPod help you lose weight? With the new release of their "revolutionary behavior modification and weight loss tool", the makers of The Right Bite, Inc. think you can! They proudly introduced The Right Bite 1.0 on November 4th with a tag line of "How Skinny People Eat". Backing their app up with scientific research conducted at major universities, they focus on the pace you eat. According to the PrMac release announcement, "The studies conclude that slower eating generally produces less consumption with no loss of feeling satiated. By focusing on chewing thoroughly, the user gets more caloric energy out of each bite than if the same amount of food was less pulverized due to fast eating and improper chewing."

Weight loss and the iPhone: A very affordable app
Weight loss has never cost so little. The Right Bite 1.0 is only $1.99 (USD). The Right Bite will work with iPhone or iPod Touch 2.2 or later.

Ping! Exclamation Point!

http://seattlest.com

Anyone that has worked for, with, or anywhere near "the man" should dislike the word ping. It's too easy to immediately associate the word with a bothersome, middle aged project manager saying, "Let me look into that and I'll ping you." Why can't you just say email? Why?

We begrudgingly admit that in the case of this new iPhone app, the name is rather fitting. The application allows free registered users to message each other via push notifications over the data connection, rather than SMS. This is rad for a number of reasons. Most obviously, users of Ping can potentially avoid paying AT&T's reprehensibly priced SMS plans. It also allows the opportunity to communicate with people who have no SMS plan at all, such as complete freaks or friends overseas.

One thing Blackberry has always had over iPhones, and that converts deeply miss, is Blackberry Messenger. It's real time, it's free, it's easy; it's texting on steroids. Ping isn't quite there yet, but it's a step in the right direction.

Update: AT&T 'pleased' with iPhone MMS rollout three days in

http://www.computerworld.com

Nearly three days after activating its multimedia messaging service (MMS) to iPhone 3G and 3GS, AT&T Inc. said today it was "pleased with the rollout" despite continuing user complaints on its own Facebook page.

Many iPhone users complained late into the weekend and early today about the service not working or taking too long to send a photo. The service was activated mid-day Friday nationwide, after AT&T took heat from customers in June about not having it available when the iPhone 3GS launched. The complaints began rolling in later Friday but there were also some praise for the rollout mixed in.

"We are pleased with the rollout of MMS" to iPhone, said spokesman Mark Siegel in an e-mail sent about 9 a.m, reiterating comments he made when the service launched Friday. This morning, Eric Mooneyham endorsed that view with his Facebook comment, "Everything went fine for me. Just sent a video to someone on Verizon, and it went through just like that! Thx AT&T."

AT&T Rolls Out iPhone MMS, Tells FCC Google Voice Breaks the Law

http://www.dailytech.com

The excitement of the iPhone finally getting multimedia messaging, is overshadowed by the Google Voice drama

After a long wait AT&T finally rolled out support for the multimedia messaging service (MMS) protocol. This means that iPhones can at last send pictures, video, and audio recordings like users of other smartphones.

IPhones have actually had MMS support built in since June when the iPhone OS v3.0 was released. AT&T, however, kept the functionality disabled for fear it would overload and break its network. Meanwhile, AT&T upgraded much of its network and built extra capacity to handle the service.

On September 22, early last week, it sent a free SMS text message to inform its customers that it would be rolling out the update on Friday. The message read, "AT&T Free Msg: Picture & video messaging (MMS) will be available for iPhone on 9/25. While we prepare your account for MMS capability, the current 'view my message' experience will be turned off but your ability to send and receive text messages will not be affected."
