Speculation about this bug is rampant in online forums. The workaround I've used with success has been described as extreme. I suffered with the app and music problem on my iPhone 3G (2.0.1) and decided I was going to deal with the issue once. So instead of trying many of the gentler methods I attacked the problem with gusto. My phone's performance has improved noticeably since the procedure, which included a 2.0.2 firmware upgrade.

Apple Removes $1,000 Scam Application from iPhone AppStore

German software developer Armin Heinrich is perplexed why his application, "I am Rich", was removed from the iPhone AppStore without warning or communication from Apple. The application showed up recently in the AppStore's Lifestyle section, priced at $999.99 -- the highest price allowed by Apple for an iPhone application.

We always enjoy keeping our readers up-to-date on the latest in third party applications available for the iPhone, especially when they are this darn good. Yesterday, a new application named GeoPedia was released. GeoPedia takes advantage of geographic positioning functionality, like those introduced in iPhone firmware 1.1.3, and provides iPhone owners with a Wikipedia feed customized to their current location.

Once installed, one need only launch GeoPedia on their iPhone to receive a iPhone stylized interface featuring a list of Wikipedia articles relevant to the phone's location. Check out the sample screen shot below for an example of GeoPedia's interface.

Google Reader for iPhone Now Available

Yesterday, Google released a new version of their popular RSS feed reader intended for use on the Apple iPhone. Google created the new version of the reader as an exercise in using the Google Web Toolkit to create feature-rich applications for the iPhone.
