Josh’s Lifelog for 2009-06-18

  • @JRinPDX I haven’t heard of Twithive. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks! in reply to JRinPDX #
  • @jpc101 Believe it or not, I’ve never actually used Twitterfon, but I always hear great things about it. in reply to jpc101 #
  • I think Google Quick Search is finally fast and robust enough to be a full-fledged Quicksilver replacement for me. I miss some plugins, tho. #
  • @corvida You can send links to Tweetie from the browser. Change http:// to tweetie:// – there are steps to build a bookmarklet on the site. in reply to corvida #
  • Got 3.0 loaded on my iPhone 3G. Now, to explore all the nooks and crannies! #
  • I *LOVE* the new Home button controls in 3.0. Switch between Home/Search with one click. I have two clicks set to launch the camera. Sweet! #
  • Another little 3.0 nugget: a search bar at the top of the List view in Calendar. #
  • @1tonyjones Voice control is a hardware feature in the iPhone 3G S. in reply to 1tonyjones #
  • @1tonyjones I’ll try out Voice Control on Friday morning, and let you know how it goes. ๐Ÿ™‚ in reply to 1tonyjones #
  • The App Store changed in 3.0. Now has “More”, which takes you to “Updates” and “Redeem”: http://twitpic.com/7n2c5 #
  • @morganpdx Hit the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time to snap a screenshot. It will be saved in your Camera Roll. #
  • OK, so now Notes sync in iPhone 3.0. I’ve checked the box. I made a test note. But where the heck did the note sync *to* on my Mac? #
  • Thanks everyone (Notes sync into Mail.app). I don’t use Mail.app, but it’s no big deal, because I don’t use Notes either. ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • @jezlyn Mail search’s “Continue on Server” looked promising, but alas, it doesn’t seem to work with Gmail over IMAP. in reply to jezlyn #
  • One really cool iPhone 3.0 feature I haven’t seen many people talking about: shake to undo. #
  • @akfarrell @bljarv EXACTLY like an Etch-a-Sketch. It’s brilliant. And since there’s no other way to “undo”, I suspect I’ll use it often. ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • Wow, with all those responses, I hereby dub the iPhone 3.0 “shake to undo” feature the Etch-a-Sketch Maneuver. ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • RT @gruber: iPhone 3.0 tip: If you select a portion of an email before replying, only the selected portion is quoted in the reply. #
  • Now that iPhone 3.0 is out, and the iTunes store servers are apparently melting and leaking under the door, what are these great 3.0 apps? #
  • How come I can’t hold/copy/paste on some web pages, like http://friendfeed.com/iPhone/? I hold, and nothing happens. Other pages are fine. #
  • @davewiner Dave, try the app AudioBoo (free) to post audio to Twitter. Very slick, and emits RSS 2.0! No affiliation, just think it’s cool. in reply to davewiner #
  • iPhone 3.0 Voice Memo pro tip: hold the phone upside down, Home button above the screen. App rotates, mic is now on the top. Mo’ betta. #
  • I tried iPhone Voice Memo screen rotation because Griffin’s iTalk recorder app does it. Much easier to aim the mic at the sound source. #
  • Upgrading @rachelbancroft’s first gen iPhone to 3.0. I’m going to waterfall my current 3G to her when I get my 3G S on Friday. #
