Remote wiping and find my iPhone requires MobileMe subscription and iPhone 3.0 software
Hardware I’d like to see…
A portable keyboard you can plug into an iPhone (or WiFi, even). It will take a lifetime to write the Great American Novel using one finger. While you’re at it, include extra battery power.
U guys have no idea how u were responsible for
SallySpa to hit number one. Then after I finished it I spent another
$10 trying to find something comparable.
There is nothing. Not even Sally herself could do it with SallySalon.
Can you help me with putting an audiobook into my audiobook file on my IPHONE. It’s my own personal audiobook, didn’t get it on Itunes. It’s in a MPEG Layer 3 audio file. I can’t figure out how to have it appear in the audiobook portion of my IPHONE. It’s in my ipod portion in a playlist so it gets mixed up with all my music. I hate that, help me out please
Love your show, you guys are smokin crack.
Not too difficult to change a file to appear as an audio book. When you see the item in iTunes, you should right click on it and hit the GET INFO button. Go into options and select MEDIA KIND, and from there AUDIO BOOK. It will turn the file into an audio book and move it under that playlist in iTunes. When you sync, it will move the file on your iPhone to the right spot as well…
this showw rules, on the iphone, does anyone know how i can increase ring volume, i know its in general but its still very quiet. Or maybe theres a louder ringtone, thanks loads, lovee the show
I love your podcast, what do you recommend for people you want to start their own audio podcast?
Hey Scott and Eric,
Love the show (as well as ELR and The Instance). Big fan! I saw this “article” and thought of you guys. Pretty silly stuff, check it out!
Ok. Nearly every App you guys have reccommended has been awesome.
Distant Shores. I like it. The concept is pretty cool. Like an anonymous Twitter. I enjoyed it for a while. Though it got annoying having to walk the beach. I would rather flick the screens. So I got a couple bottles. Answered some messages and sent some of my own. When I started getting hit on my 50 year men.
FAIL! Nice one Eric.
OMG you guys are hilarious. I actually laugh out loud, all by myself, listening to both of you. But, just as importantly, you are informative. I listen at work (shh) and I listen at home, while I’m at the App Store, checking out the apps you’ve recommended. I’m in Canada and the fact that you include speakers/listeners from other countries outside the U. S of A., is great.
For iphone app entertainment you gentlemen rule!
Go Eric, go Scott, go Eric, go Scott
This is me shaking a fist at you for recommending that darn Sally Spa game—totally hooked! Good podcast, too. Your rambling is 99% relevant.
your podcast is great. After listening to 8 hours of your podcasts, it’s hard to wait
for your next one in 1 week. When are you going to review apps like.. Screen wash or
wobbles? Any other good recommendations like those ones? What was the app where you called someone through your headphones called? The heat in Seattle is unbearable, but your podcast is awesome!
Can you please spell Eric’s twitter account username on your next broadcast. Apparently, it is neither hakito nor hockeytoe. Keep up the great podcast!
Due to you guys I’m going to try out Geocaching and Distant Shores. Those are just a few of the MANY apps I have gotten after hearing your down to earth reviews.
Listened to the show today! GREAT as usual. There is an app that does track apps like Appshopper. Its called Pandora Box and its FREE! Only it doesn’t do push notifications.
Just wanted to say, First time listener here and will continue after show #9. Was just wondering if you guys heard anything about a TOM TOM app for the Iphone? Also a great game i play is Galaxy on Fire, a bit on expensive side at $4.99 but hoping they will release v2 soon, check it out if you can.
Catica seems to be no more, can’t find it on the App Store (4PM Eastern Time, 8/5/09)
Hey guys, can you please do a review of turn-by-turn gps programs. I would like your feed back before I spend big bucks$$$$.
Hey guys, I was really wanting to know if there is a good app to organize your photos. My album is becoming a mess and I need to find a good app to use, any ideas?
App for org photos
(foto safe) can create multiple albums BEWARE any pictures u delete in photo safe will be lost read instr. U can transfure photo back and forth from foto to iPhone to work on really great for org
Hey guys, loving the show. So far, you provide the best podcast I have found. A quick request: I have a job that I work 3 different shifts, and I would like to be able to quickly program my schedule into my phone. Do you know of any ways that I could do this without manually selecting a date, and having to mess with the scrolling wheels for every day I work? Like if I could set up a template that I could apply to each work day. Thank you!
The BIGWORDS.com iPhone app is saving my daughter hundreds of dollars on college textbooks. This app is so fast and easy to use. BIGWORDS combs the web for the best deals on ANY textbook — new, used, any edition, any language, even rental books. What we like is that one site does it all, and students can use it to buy the books they need wherever they are. We saved almost $300 on 5 books, got exactly what was needed, and they even shipped optimized for best prices. They even applied my daughter’s Barnes&Noble and Amazon discounts in the price comparison. The download is here: http://www.bigwords.com/iphone/
Hey guys. Love the show! Big fan of The Instance and ELR, as well as AppSlappy. I am looking to get an iPod touch soon and I was wondering if it can be tethered to a cellphone much like my Palm TX I have. I can dial phone numbers and send SMS messages on my Palm while it is connected to my cellphone via Bluetooth. This makes for more convenient use of 1 device instead of constantly swapping between the 2. Thanks again!
when i watch a movie or something on the iphone, the only way to delete the movie is when i got back home 2 the imac, but when i was looking at all my movies on the iphone, and i swiped on one of my movies to the right and a delete button came up, then i tapped on that delete button, and the movie was gone. what you think about that? that must be a good tip!!!!?
Excellent show! You guys make me laugh!!!! And the app reviews and apple gossip/opinions are cool. Wondering if you can help me out with a technical issue??? Today I was syncing my iPhone 3gs. The autmatic launch of iTunes didn’t occur as it normally does when I plug the phone into the USB jack. But the prompt for picture sync came up. I was goofing around with a sound generator app while the pictures sync’d. Had to retry to sync a bunch of pics. Then when it finished syncing picture I tried to run ANY app that I had installed from iTunes and they all show a quick splash screen then dump me back out to the main window where I select an app. No apps other than iPhone/Apple apps work. What should I do? Where do I get the low down on how to fix this?
Thanx!!! Wish you guys had a daily show!
Where the heck are you guys? Its friday and still nothing. Are you guys off the air?
EDIT: You don’t follow us on Twitter, do you.
@Rosemary Rodriguez on July 2nd asked: “Can you help me with putting an audiobook into my audiobook file on my IPHONE… I can?t figure out how to have it appear in the audiobook portion of my IPHONE.”
Just right-click on it in iTunes and select Get Info. Then go to the Options tab, click Media Kind, select Audiobook, and click OK. This will remove from your normal Music playlists, and it will appear under Audiobooks.
i am going to buy an i touch where is the best place to buy a good cheap ipod
Where are the backgrounds?!
P.S. I love the show its probably the best podcast I’ve used!
I missed you guys last week. I was on vacation and had WORLDS of time to listen, but guess what??? You didn’t show! Don’t skip another week. Hey, I can’t ever seem to get the free stuff… by the time I get to it (like FROGGER) the price goes up. But I still luv ya. My husband got me hooked.
For the 3Gs as least you can turn mono audio on by selecting Settings > General > Accessibility > Mono Audio > On
Is there a real forum for AppSlappy or just myextralife? You know you could do more than just redirect from appslappy.com to here! Maybe you should let Eric handle that.
Um, Scott? The escape the room type of games someone was asking about on this weeks podcast are readily found with a search in iTunes. iEscaper is one along with a series of games Escape 1, 2, 3, Room Escape, White House Escape, etc., etc.
I got the one you suggested, Boxed In. Not at all what the caller was looking for.
Try the ones I suggested, I have yet to.
Love the Show!
You can set in accessability inside of general

Check out this site http://www.bookase.com, A price comparison search engine for books and textbooks. It searches for the lowest prices among the major online stores worldwide and also offers discount coupons. You can also choose among various shipping options to calculate the lowest price
First I have to say your show is great, really enjoy the banter and all the info is great especially for a new iPhone & mac user like myself.
2 questions, firstly I’m in Australia on a capped plan with peak and off-peak periods. I was wondering if there is anyway I can schedule iTunes to do my podcast downloads in my offpeak (over night) period automatically, like the scheduler in uTorrent.
Second I was wondering if you could suggest any other great podcasts for a new iPhone/Mac user thats interested in getting to grips with the platform. I’m already subscribed to MacBreak weekly, TWIT and the Maccast but I was hoping for something with a nice informal setup like your show.
Having just discovered podcasts (am pretty tech savvy but have avoided macs for along time), I loving the format and keen to look @ podcasts in all my areas of interest.
Thanks again and keep up the great work
Hi there to all….
Does any one if they will bring out Dungeon Master on the app store at any time as I’d love to play that again….
? ??? ????? ? ?? ???? ?? ?????:)
Hey guys thanks again for the shout out on episode 19(all my friends are jelous). I was wondering if you guys would ever do a ps3 podcast of sorts all the other ones are sub-par and I think guys could make it fantastic. Also I know you guys mentioned this on a previous show but what are some good apps that keep track of Christmas gifts and such.
You two Rock the “Cass-pod-Cast-bah!” but Scott – A scanner, “not CB radio”, very different analog band-receiver – Just say’in & 10-4 to ‘Adam 12′ & ‘the other guy’, who knows his Rice, and Viva your top-notch show!
I am a 71 year old Nana from Australia. I have had an iPod for the last seven years, I changed to a Touch and then got an upgrade. I downloaded your pod cast and have been hooked ever since. I love all the apps and games all thanks to you both and now I have the iPhone and am thrilled to bits.
Scott & Eric,
Love the show! I’ve been using Distant Shores for awhile now….I’ve lost hours of my life collecting bottles and writing notes. I like to ask people stupid questions like what super power would they have if all the cool powers were taken and What are their favorite YouTube vids… you get interesting responses. Try it. Ahyhoo, Take care, good show and DERP! Also check out Pandorabox.
N8 the Gr8
iPod touch NEEDS a camera! Make it happen Scott & Eric…… or not …. whatever… DERP!
Great recommendation on Things. I have been using OmniFocus but Scott’s persistence and interview got me to check out Things….now I wonder what I did without it and OmniFocus is insanely more difficult.
A note about keyboards….look at CES coverage. There are a couple coming out. I used a iPaq years ago with a portable keyboard. Didn’t really change anything. My phone is for incidental notes or if I have been caught without my Mac book, but I pretty much carry my macbook where ever I go now. If you are going to carry a portable keyboard chances are you are better off with either a laptop or (fingers crossed) a tablet of some kind. Think about it. You either would use yoru phone or real paper right? Why go lower? Just go for the real deal.
Hey App Slappy Brothers
Just wanted to let you know that I loved the Best of Show it kicked ass and you guys rock. LOVED IT.
PS can you guys please talk about Google docs and the Iphone and how you guys use it to upload pics and doc and information and what note taking app that takes notes with pictures as wel as notes is the best. I am excited about using google docs but want your tips and recs. about how to do it best,
Love the SHOW!!!!!!
I would like to see apple and blizzard make a simple version of wow for ipad
I love the show and will continue listening…I am quite new to your show…but I have to say…Patrick MUST be a regular, adds something to it all.
Patrick!! Patrick!! Patrick!! Patrick!! Patrick!! Patrick!! Patrick!! Patrick!!
You guys do a great job and I really love the podcast, it is the best. But you made a mistake in the most recent podcast in the review of the TAL app. You said that you get all the TV shows with the purchase of the app. Tried it and they send you to itunes to buy it. Just thought you should know. You guys are still awesome, keep up the great work.
You recommended the app LaDiDa recently.
How does LaDiDa compare with ‘I Am T-Pain’? Is ‘La’ more for people who can’t sing?
Which app is better?
I see ‘T-pain’ seems to integrate with your iTunes library.
Thanks. Love the podcast!
Hey, i just listened to recent podcast from the Uk (#35)
There is a way to download files and upload to drop box. i use Readdle Docs. you can use the built in browser, or in safari at R to the HTTP:// and it opens readdle
then you can save into the file system and upload/download to mobileme, dropbox, google docs, and more
my most used app, the perfect file manager
Love the show, small nit to pick. The saying is “moot point” or “the point is moot”, not “mute” Scott.
