Adobe has released their Adobe Ideas app that was last week released for the iPad, for the iPhone and iPod Touch as well. It is free and available on the App Store, letting you use your device as a digital sketchbook.
If you are on the iPhone but not the iPad, give the app a try and see how you like to sketch using your fingers on the touch screen.
The popular Twitter client for the iPhone and iPod Touch, Tweetie has been acquired by Twitter, developer Loren Brichter announced on his website yesterday. He will begin a position in Twitter's mobile team and the iPhone application will be renamed Twitter for iPhone and be made available for free in the coming weeks.
Perhaps this also means that an iPad client will be available sooner, now that he is part of a team? Many are already longing to see the application on their iPads and for Twitter now, this would be a smart move to make, quickly.
At its special event today, Apple has just announced their new iPhone OS 4.0 which will be shipping this summer for the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G as well as the iPod Touch 2nd and 3rd generations (older models, not supported). Apple are saying that there are over 100 new features in the update, as well as about 1500 new API tools for developers. Let’s have a look at what is in there, starting with the big ones:
Finally, Apple caved in for the pressure and have added multitasking to the new OS. You can finally run multiple 3rd party apps at once. Just by double-clicking your home icon, a row pops up with your open icons, which you can also close from within there.
Not to drain your battery life too fast, Apple has made rules on only certain API types, when it comes to the multitasking, but you should be pleased to know that VoiP and background audio streaming is available, plus more!
You should note that only the iPhone 3GS and the iPod Touch 3rd generation (late 2009) in sizes 32gb and 64gb (alas, not the 8gb) can handle multitasking and thus, the iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2nd generation, will not have it.
Apple has invited some select members of the press to a special event tomorrow, April 8th to preview some upcoming things in the iPhone OS 4.0. My guess is that we might see a beta version of OS 4.0 released to developers tomorrow, as Apple has been known to do previously. In any case, it is going to be interesting to see what they are highlighting.
Tune back in here tomorrow to find out what Apple is announcing on their special event, which starts at 10 a.m Pacific Time.
