There is nothing worse than getting lost when you are
trying to go somewhere.
It also can be embarrassing
having to stop and ask for directions.

But with the Apple iPhone you have the ability to find
out everything that you need right there on your cell
phone.

When you open the Maps application on your iPhone,
Wi-Fi networks and information from cell towers are
able to give your approximate location. Simply drop a
pin on the map and then move it to where you want to
go.

The amazing iPhone will give you directions, and it
can also give you interest points that are nearby. But
the iPhone doesn’t stop there.

No longer do you have to turn on the radio to find out
what the current traffic conditions are. You can get
the information right there on your iPhone.

Along with the ability to view satellite images of
major street names, the Apple iPhone is right there to
help you find your way quickly and easily.

The Apple iPhone helps you save time and save face.
Instead of stopping to ask directions, you can get the
information that you need right there on your iPhone.

Not only that, but it can help you find landmarks and
other things that you might be interested in along the
way. It’s like having a navigator right there with you
in your car, letting you know what you need to know
and getting you where you need to go.

Iphone Software Downloads

Apple have continued along the lines of the Ipod, this time with the Iphone.
This latest evolution of Apple technology works as a cellphone, music player, movie player and will even give you internet access. The Iphone really has given people a taste of the technology of the future, especially taken into account the software downloads.

Apple have recently decreed that they will not be allowing any third party organisations produce software for the Iphone. Instead they intend to create all software themselves, and the third party guys are going to be limited to the production of peripherals. Be that as it may, the Iphone software has already been compromised by enterprising hackers, and it’s now possible to buy software over the net which will allow the Iphone to be used on cell networks other than the ones intended by Apple. This is a mixed blessing for Iphone owners, as it does allow greater freedom with price plans etc, but Apple have already unequivocally stated that these adjustments will instantly invalidate the warranty on your Iphone.

Apple are expected to announce an update to the Iphone software over the next few month. It is thought that the main purpose of this update is to close the backdoor which the hackers have been using to unlock the firmware on these early versions. The other main feature of the update is expected to be compatibility with the Itunes software, enabling Iphone owners to download media directly from the internet, something that has been possible with other cellphones for some years now.

Apple have announced plans to continually update the Iphone software and interface, and to make these updated available regularly, as a free download over the internet. It’s thought that the main reason for these frequent updates is to keep the hackers out of the system, but in all likelihood it will only result in a similar situation to Sony’s PSP, with certain models being more sought after due to having hackable firmware. This has resulted in a game of back and forth between Sony and the hackers, and is probably the kind of scenario Apple will find themselves in over the coming months.

For any Iphone owner, life will only get more exciting as more and more exciting software developments are announced and implemented for this amazing piece of technology.

How To Get Movies On Iphone

If you are lucky enough to own an Iphone and have been trying to find out how to put movies on it, this article aims to show you the way.
You can’t have failed to realise that Apple have recently released their Iphone, which is technological marvel following along the lines of the Ipod.

The Iphone is, as it sounds, basically an Ipod mixed with the latest cellphone technology, allowing internet browsing, phone calls, and multimedia storage all from one small handset. There is obviously a lot that the Iphone can do alongside play movies, but the movie playing side of things looks a dead cert to be on of the most popular aspects.

With an Iphone you can show movies that have come either from a DVD or straight from the internet. Obviously, a DVD won’t fit into your Iphone, so you’ll first need to get the movie onto a computer, and you should then be able to transfer the files to your Iphone. In order to get a DVD saved on your computer in the required format, you’ll need some “ripping” software, which is capable of ripping the files into MP4 format, which is what the Iphone uses.

The other side of the coin is when you are trying to get movies on your Iphone when you don’t actually own them on DVD. This answer is one of the most sought after amongst Iphone owners, and once you know it you will probably be the envy of many of your friends.

Many people simply download the movies from torrent or peer to peer sites, which is of course illegal, and pretty dangerous for your computer too. Ever wondered why people that download lots of stuff get viruses all the time? It’s because they use places like that. Do you really want to run the risk of killing your Iphone or computer, or worse, actually going to jail, just to download the latest Tarantino movie? It’s simply not worth the risk.

Instead, there are some much safer alternatives springing up in the world these days. There are only a few of these sites because the Iphone is so new, and you really do need to know where they are to find them, but the way it works is that you pay a small fee and then you are given access to their download database, which is usually huge, much larger than any P2P site. Once you have access, you are then allowed to download an unlimited amount of stuff for your Iphone. It’s not limited to movies either, you could download MP3s, games, music videos, TV shows, pretty much whatever you desire. The downloads are usually pretty smooth and fast too.

Hopefully you will find this resource useful, as most people have no idea these sites exist.

Travel and Your iPhone

Do you like to travel? Are you on the road constantly for business? Then the Apple iPhone may be the phone of choice for you. The reason for this is that the iPhone has a GPS navigator built into it. If you are always on the go, a navigator is what you need. Fussing with maps and asking for directions is a thing of the past. Nowadays, tech savvy people have a navigation system in their cars. With an iPhone, you always have your navigator with you, no matter who is driving. Travel and your iPhone; it’s a match made in heaven (sort of).

Why would you need a navigator on your cell phone? Anytime you need directions, to a new club perhaps, just tell it where you want to go an viola’ directions are there. Even those of us who are no longer part of the club scene will benefit from having a navigation system with us at all times. You can use this to quickly find directions to the field your kid should be playing on. Perhaps the directions given to a friends party were vague. These are all situations where having a navigations system like the one included with the iPhone comes in very handy. Lost in the desert? (yes it happens) Then you really need the navigation system on your iPhone.

In addition to the navigation system there are other reasons to make sure you have your iPhone with you when you travel. Aside from the fact that you will always have a cell phone with you, another advantage is that all of your entertainment is with you as well. If you are taking a long drive and there is nothing to see but cornfields for the next 400 miles, having movies, eBooks and music to entertain you can be a godsend. With the iPhone, you can take your movies and television shows with you wherever you go. This is another reason for pairing up travel and your iPhone.

Are travel and your iPhone really a good match? Let’s take a look and see. For example, instead of stopping to ask directions, you can get the information that you need right there on your iPhone. The Apple iPhone is right there to help you find your way with the ability to view satellite images of major street names. The iPhone can help you find landmarks and other things that you might be interested in along the way on your trip. It’s like having a navigator right there with you in your car, letting you know what you need to know and getting you where you need to go.

Now that you know why travel and your iPhone make such a good pair, remember to keep this in mind for your next trip. Be sure to load up on plenty of movies, eBooks, TV shows and music. Use your Apple iPhone to plan your travel route. Check the navigation system for points of interest along the way and make sure that you visit some of them. You can even mark the gas station along or near your route so you can plan a fill-up before it becomes an issue. If Apple keeps making features like this built into their cells phone AAA Travel services may get put out of business.

Apple iPhone To Launch In The UK

Excitement is building with just over a week to wait until the launch of the Apple iPhone in the UK.
O2 have signed a deal with Apple which guarantees the network exclusive rights to provide contract deals for the iPhone and will surely produce a huge surge in customers. Other retailers such as The Carphone Warehouse are already providing customers with a preview of the handset price and O2 tariff options.

The Apple iPhone looks fantastic. If fact it is looks and works so good that Apple has decided to base future iPod designs on the iPhone. The touch screen interface is revolutionary in the world of mobile phones. Although it has been done before on other mobile phones and PDA’s, it has never been quite in the same style or manner that the iPhone offers. The Apple iPhone brings all the capabilities you would expect from a top of the range iPod including music and video, a 3.5-inch widescreen display, an 8GB flash drive and allows you to connect to your iTunes library. The battery life is far better than a normal mobile phone and allows up to 8 hours talk time. WiFi and GPRS connectivity allow for fast email and Internet browsing within the simple and easy to use Safari browser.

But the Apple iPhone is more about the experience. Apple has spent a lot of time getting their user interface just right and the result is sublime. For starters the iPhone automatically recognises whether you are holding and viewing the phone horizontally or vertically and adjusts the screen accordingly. The touch screen does not only respond to simple button touches but also to finger movements. For example to scroll through your contacts or play lists you simply slide your finger across the screen and the iPhone responds as a computer software program would when you use the scroll bar. There are also certain finger actions which allow you to zoom in and out when viewing web pages or photos. Even the keypad lock is operated by sliding your finger across the phone to prevent you from mistakingly using the iPhone’s touch screen buttons. There is one single traditional button at the bottom of the iPhone which allows you to quickly return to the mail menu.

The Apple iPhone only includes a 2 megapixel camera which is far behind the current technology supplied through other mobile phone manufacturers. Surprisingly there is no option to capture video through the iPhone camera which, when you consider that Apple products focus a lot on allowing users to watch video, seems very peculiar. This gives you the feeling that the camera was a last minute add-on and was not entirely thought through properly.

The iPhone breaks the mold and has created a huge jump in mobile phone user interface displays which other mobile phone manufacturers must be scurrying around to try and catch up with Apple. Although there are currently some other fantastic phones on the market, such as the Nokia N95 which offers greater technology, the Apple iPhone is about to become the best selling mobile phone of the year, partly though the hype it has received but mainly because it is such a fantastic revolutionary product.
