Version 1.3 includes a fun feature supporting a local-based game in which the driver picks up a point or a random item while driving as indicated by the application. When you create the route and start driving, you would see the “?” box on the bar at the top of the screen which shows you the next street. The color of bar will gradually change when the driver approaches to certain distance. The “?” box will be opened when the color change hits the box. If you drive successfully as guided by the application, the bar color will get completely changed and you will get the item. But if you make a wrong way, you cannot the get the item in the box.

Don’t forget: When you travel, take G-Map with you.

Visst är jag präst och skriver en hel del om tro på den här bloggen (så ofta jag nu skriver), men jag är också sen barnsben en riktig liten (mindre liten nu, kanske) nörd. Och kan därför inte hålla mig ifrån att skriva om några av mina

Doppler: Google Reader iPhone application
I should’ve spent some more time with the updated “Feeds” application before speaking of it’s greatness. It’s integration of Google Reader is not very good at all. It is much better at handling feeds on it’s own.

iInventory$3.99 from Thomas Kilmer iInventory

Anyone that wishes to download the free Mac version for iInventory can download it from http://kilmersoftware.com/KSiInventory.zip
It can only be run on Leopard. Keep checking back for information about the version for Windows.

Are you prepared in case of an emergency? If not, iInventory is the application for you. It carefully documents all important information about items around your home or office. This application was originally designed and used for hurricane Ike. It carefully documented all of the electronics around my home. Since then, many new features have been added to improve this application. It stores the model number, serial number, purchase date, cost, and purchase location. It also stores a copy of the receipt on the phone*. With this careful documentation, it is possible to make a claim with your insurance company**. Sync with iTunes to keep a safe back-up.

In case of a disaster, your items may not be safe to have documented on your home computer. Use this application to safely store your home or office inventory, and have it available at all times. If someone borrows any item, set-up a loan in the application. It will remind you who has your item, and when to expect it back.

iInventory supports:
-An image of the item or its receipt
-Take images with the camera or use existing images from the photo album (iPhone required for camera)
-Support for multiple categories
-Support for storing serial number, model number, purchase date, purchase location, cost, and much more!
-Support for loaning items (includes a simple borrow and loan system to track who is borrowing your items)
-Create your own templates to provide for better customization.
-Backup to Mobile ME for extra security
-Use the search function to find items matching certain criteria
-Add a PIN number to protect your data
-Local backups through wi-fi
-Download reports through wi-fi that can be exported to excel
-Use the Mac version (and soon Windows) to extend the features of this application (free additional software)
-Free updates for both the iPhone and Mac versions

This application brought me peace of mind, I hope it brings you some as well.

*This application does not replace storage of actual receipts. It is always a good idea to have hard-copies of all receipts and invoices

**Check with your insurance company to verify that this application stores enough information to file a claim. All insurance companies vary.

If you have any questions, comments, complaints, or suggestions, please email me at tlkilmer@sbcglobal.net. I will try to respond as quickly as possible, and provide the best support that I can.

Search$4.99 from Polar Bear Farm Ltd Search

Search allows you to search your contacts by keyword.

Search contacts based on first name, last name, organisation, job title, department, notes, phone number, or email address.

Doesn’t the iPhone already have contact searching? Yes, however many people find the algorithm too basic for their needs. Search adds more sophisticated search algorithms, including quick search, which minimizes the keystrokes needed to find a contact:

Type the first letter of the persons first then start typing their last name. For example, if you were searching for Layton Duncan, you can just type ‘ldu’ Using this algorithm you can find contacts quickly with minimum key strokes.

Search also searches through more fields that the built in search function. It delves into phone numbers, email addresses, contact notes, and job title.
