Not only is testing the apps potentially fun and fairly rewarding, testers also receive £2 for each app tested, as well as the price of the app up front via PayPal. All that is necessary is to rigorously test the app and fill in a short questionnaire post-test. It’s really that simple.

Apple Addresses iPhone 4 Antenna Issues: Free Cases For All!

apple-iphone-4-steve-jobs-wwdc-keynoteApple has just held a press conference about the iPhone 4 antenna issues that have plagued it since its release nearly a month ago. In it they attempt to put this whole story in perspective after countless posts of the troubles that users are having with the device have been published to the net.

So what’s happened at the conference? Well, first of all, those in attendance were treated to a wonderful rendition of the iPhone Antenna Song (believe me, I wish I was joking), before Steve Jobs came out to present some hard facts.

Facts and Figures

He compared three phones: the Blackberry Bold 9700; the HTC Droid Eris and the Samsung Omnia II, and showed that they all, essentially have the same problem as the iPhone 4. When you hold them in a certain way, you get a big decrease in signal strength, down to 1 or 0 bars. [Read more...]

Apple to Recall iPhone 4? Or Offer Free Bumper Cases? – Emergency Press Conference Tomorrow

apple-iphone-4-steve-jobs-wwdc-keynoteIt’s no secret that the latest, and supposedly greatest, addition to the massively popular iPhone range has been plagued with problems from day one. Namely, the iPhone 4 antenna has been riddled with issues concerning dropped signal when the user covers a certain area of the phone.

Apple have done their best to play down the issues releasing a series of statements regarding the issues, but with news of an emergency press conference to be held tomorrow, tech blogs worldwide are speculating just why.

Many people believe Apple are on the verge of a mass recall of the iPhone 4, could this really be possible? Customers literally queued all night and day to get their hands on one first, but it seems now they’ll have to rejoin the line and hand it back, something which will no doubt enrage the thousands of early adopters of the new smartphone. Though, this is just a rumour as yet and it is uncertain just what the outcome of the press conference will be, but it is pretty much a given that it will be related to the recent antenna issues, which were thought to be an iPhone 4 software issue.

gran-turismo-5-ps3-coverThe game that has been put back more times than I can remember, Gran Turismo 5, is almost upon us on the PS3. From the countless videos and images that I’ve seen it looks very impressive and hope that it plays as well as it looks.

Npower iPhone & Android App Review

npower-logoIf you are an Npower customer, you may be interested to hear that there is an official Npower application available for both iOS and Android devices. What would Npower customers do with a mobile phone app, you may ask? Well, in terms of functionality at least, this application isn’t too bad…

After installing it onto my Nexus One, the main screen of the application allows you to choose between various categories. You can access your accounts; take and upload meter readings; view frequently asked questions; obtain contact information and access a few extras too (more on that a little later on).

When using the application for the first time, you’ll want to set up your account, so that you can complete meter readings straight from your phone, making sure you aren’t being overcharged on those bills of yours!
