A tale of App Store shenanigans and skulduggery

February 15, 2011

As you might know we have an iPhone app called PhotoFrame and an iPad app called PhotoFramePlus. The other day I did a quick search for it in the App Store (I wanted to copy the link to send to someone) and I came across a competing app called PhotoFrame Pro HD by MAX CA APPS. So I thought I’d have a little look at the competition, and what I found turned out to be rather interesting…

Free February iPhone Calendar Wallpapers

February 1, 2011

February already. Here’s a couple of calendar wallpapers for you.


As per usual, the wallpapers are created with our MyCal app that lets you superimpose calendar information on the picture of your choice and then save it out as a wallpaper image.

MyCal iPhone Calendar Wallpaper tip

January 4, 2011

Here’s a great little MyCal tip from one of our MyCal users (thanks Ron!)

When you press the power or home buttons on the iPhone, the lock screen appears and you can see your MyCal calendar wallpaper. The only problem is, it’s only visible for about 6 seconds and that might not be long enough to get a proper look at the calendar.  The solution: just move the unlock-slider a little bit to the right (not all the way across though!), hold it there and you can examine your calendar as long as you want.

Playlist Alarm Clock ‘one of the best’ iPhone alarm clocks

January 3, 2011

According to a recent post by TUAW rounding up their favourite iPhone alarm clock apps, our Playlist AlarmClock is one of the best!

Playlist Alarm Clock lets you set up two playlists, one to send you off to sleep and one to wake you up. So pick you favourite chillout tunes and set the volume to fade out, then drift off to sleep.  Then be woken up in the morning by something a bit livelier… Of course, you can specify different volumes for each list and choose an amount of time for the music to fade in or out.

Thanks guys!

Happy New Year Everybody! Free January iPhone Calendar Wallpapers

January 2, 2011

Goodbye 2010 and hello 2011 – let’s hope it’s a good one.

Here’s a few calendar wallpapers to get you off to a good start. As per usual, the wallpapers are created with our MyCal app that lets you superimpose calendar information on the picture of your choice and then save it out as a wallpaper image.

Updated: As some of you pointed out, we managed to be extra generous and give you 5 calendars instead of the usual 2 – unfortunately they were for Jan 2010 rather than 2011 so absolutely no use to anyone at all… Apologies for the stupid mistake and if you did download them and haven’t noticed yet, please don’t rely on them for anything important. We’d hate you to miss an important date because of us 🙂

 

3 more after the break…

PhotoFramePlus Holiday sale

December 22, 2010

Just a quick post to let you know that PhotoFramePlus is on sale for the Holiday period – grab a copy now for just 99c (59p)!

It’s a great little photoframe app that improves on Apple’s own slideshow feature by adding a clock, calendar display and full screen year-to-view calendar view. Another little trick it has up its sleeve is intelligently crop and resize your images to fill the screen whatever orientation so that you’ll never see those black bars.
