Some of us won't think twice about spending $10 in a coffee shop or buying a few apps for our iPhones. So why not pull out that cool iPhone of yours and use the technology to help people in need? It will take all of 30 seconds of your time. Here are the details. Simply text "Haiti" to 90999 and a $10 donation will be added to your phone bill. I know that times are hard, but they are much much much harder for the people in Hait right now. Thanks!
Congratulations goes to Greg (#333) our winner of the $50 iTunes Gift Certificate!

If you travel then you probably stay in hotels. Sometimes we have no choice in where we stay because it's been mandated by the company we work for or it's just simply more convenient to stay at the location where the event is taking place. So in those cases you just go with the flow.
When you're spending your own money
When it comes to travel for leisure or when you do have a choice then chances are you want the best deal you can find in the area. When I travel to a new location I may not even know what hotels are in the area let alone which ones have the best prices or deals. This is where HotelPal comes in. In one tap HotelPal can show you all of the hotels in a given area and then quickly sort them by rate based on the dates you want to stay. It's actually pretty amazing the way this thing works and the speed at which it works. Once you find a location that looks interesting you can drill down for more details and even book it right within the app.
You might remember Focalware from our review here. Well the folks over at Spiral Development wanted us to let you know that Focalware is now ON SALE for only $4.99 (half off) until the end of January!
Also they wanted to clarify the Compass support
With the 3GS model, Focalware uses Apple's internal compass to show the actual current position of sun and moon. With all earlier phones and the iTouch, we use a fixed compass graphic where the user moves the sun and moon for different times. Since we do not try to animate the compass in non 3GS devices, they are no less accurate with the results. The calculations are the same on any model. Typically non-3GS users rely on an external compass.
You can get it here from the App Store:
