Tim Cook openly apologized about the sub-par iOS 6 maps. He suggested a whole bunch of 3rd party apps instead. Google reportedly did not hand over the necessary data for turn-by-turn directions which prompted Apple to release their own mapping solution.
Apple v/s Scout : My experiences
I personally used Scout app (by TeleNav) when it was free for a month. I launched it on the iPhone 5 and lo behold, Scout offered a free year of turn-by-turn based navigation which is voice enabled. It is pretty neat and gets the job …

App, AppStore, google »

I have been using Google+ for about 3 weeks now and it is nothing short of ‘awesome’! An Android app was available long back but Apple approved Google+ today and it looks exactly like that of its Android counterpart. I prefer Google+ over FaceBook for some serious social experience just because there aren’t apps or ads on Google+ just yet. All in all, Google+ is definitely worth a shot.
Download Google+ for your iPhone here if you already have a Google+ account.
I have plenty of Google+ invites to give away. Ask …

Wow, Apple finally approved Google’s own awesome iPhone application, free on App Store (Download). There were paid alternatives previously which didn’t do justice to Google’s service at all.

Qik Video Pro is FREE for the weekend, a $1.99 value! If you have an iPhone other than the 3GS, then you are better off with this app to shoot quick videos. I put it to test and it got some cool features not found in Apple’s own 3GS Video recorder app (camera app actually!).
Some of the features :

Upload to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Qik directly from your iPhone
Digital Zoom
Various themes (Frost, normal, black and white, red, normal, mirror,…) to shoot your videos in

So wait not and download it from the …

I have been using TeamViewer and Logmein for quite sometime now. I find TeamViewer to be a lot more straightforward and easy since I can easily initiate a remote session with most of my less tech-inclined friends’ PCs/Macs when they need some help.
Logmein’s iPhone app comes with a $29.99 price tag while TeamViewer outed 2 iterations of their app – FREE and $99.99! I checked the FREE version out in the following video and it worked flawlessly!

Follow these Tips/Pointers for a quick head-start
Your friend should install this quick and …

App, AppStore, google, Microsoft, Review, Voice Recognition »

Microsoft did a fantastic job with their latest app for the iPhone – Bing! It more or less mimics Google’s app but in a much better fashion. This is a must-have iPhone ¬†app, give it a shot and I am sure you will love it! Voice search is deeply integrated and Image slideshow is a treat to watch! All in all a fantastic effort from Microsoft. Hope they change the way image description is shown with each image and if they could include spoken directions with the directions – they …

Apps Crash, AppStore, Cydia, iPhone Developer, iPhone Usability »

[25 Jan 2009 | 2 Comments | ]

Now that iPhone can be unlocked to perfection till firmware v2.2, the other problem most iPhone users face is the memory issue. How many times did iPhone Safari give up on you? Not to mention those graphically rich gaming apps! Developers suggest you restart the iPhone before you use their app, well do we need to wait so long till the device boots up to full glory? No! We have an alternative, a better solution than a reboot actually! The app which lets you do that is SBSettings available on …

App, Apps Crash, AppStore, Fix, iPhone 2.0, Tips »

[20 Aug 2008 | 21 Comments | ]

After using Pwnage I have restored my iPhone numerous times following the AppStore apps crash! Interestingly enough Unofficial Apps and Cracked apps work great, just that official AppStore applications continue to crash with minimal usage of Cydia and Installer. It proved to be a challenging task to combat this issue. The following solutions or quick fixes may help you get a headstart saving you a trip to the Apple / ATT store or panic attacks for that matter! I might add this too – Steve Jobs admits the issue is …

AppStore, Cydia, free, installer.app, iPhone 2.0 »

[6 Aug 2008 | 17 Comments | ]

When Cydia first surfaced in the 1.1.4 era, I thought I shouldn’t complicate the readers of iLikeMyiPhone, particularly when there is a user friendly installer.app lingering around! Come iPhone 2.0 firmware, I have no other choice but to recommend Cydia given its enhcanced performance, possibility of various critical apps (Summerboard, BossTools and the like) and an intuitive user friendly interface! If I’m selling iPhones I wouldn’t aglow the iPhone deals I have up in my shop to miss this app! Apple’s own AppStore closely resembles installer and Cydia though AppStore …
