Well, if the latest potential app comes to fruition, you may soon be able to stop worrying about accidentally getting urine on your mobile device (assuming you were actually worrying about that…). Plus, we will officially declare there is an app for every single thing on the planet.

Apple Eases App Restriction, Publishes Review Guidelines

Much has been said about Apple’s stance in it’s closed App Store, and how the apps that are submitted to it are reviewed. There have been many complaints by developers that Apple has rejected their apps for reasons they were not aware of. Not to mention the fact that Apple recently banned third-party development tools from being used for apps that make it into the store. Today that changes.

Apple has finally released it’s App Store Review Guide to tell developers exactly what not to do with their apps.

iOS 4.1 Will Bring Game Center to All but iPhone 3G

iOS 4.1 Will Bring Game Center to All but iPhone 3G

Sometime this week, Apple will release iOS 4.1 to most iPhone and iPod touch users (iPad users have to wait for 4.1 in November). The update will fix a number of bugs such as the wonky proximity sensor on the iPhone 4. It will also bring a number of new features, though apparently not to all devices.

The biggest added feature in iOS 4.1 was actually promised to be a part of iOS 4 by Apple, and that’s Game Center. Game Center is seemingly Apple’s version of Xbox Live for iOS games.

Oh Snap! Apple Pulls Top Selling Camera App Over Easter Egg Feature

Oh Snap! Apple Pulls Top Selling Camera App Over Easter Egg Feature

We’ve all heard stories about how draconian the App Store policies can be. There was the whole debacle over political cartoons when Apple realized that satire wasn’t defacing public figures. There’s also the fact that even magazines like Playboy have to remove any hint of nudity from apps in order to get the approved. Now we have Apple pulling an excellent camera app because it put in an extra feature to use the volume buttons as shutter buttons.

Signs Point To a Face Timing iPod Touch

Signs Point To a Face Timing iPod Touch

Despite the fact that video chat has existed on phones for quite some time, when Apple announced Face Time for the iPhone 4, it was hailed as a revelation. It’s easy enough to start that almost anyone can use it, and Apple does a great job showing the moments where it would come in handy. We might never have an experience like those advertised, but it’s always nice to dream. The downsides? Both parties need an iPhone 4, and it only works on WiFi at the moment. Perhaps the latter could be a bright spot.

iPhone 4 Antenna Saga Finally Has an End in Sight

iPhone 4 Antenna Saga Finally Has an End in Sight

If you’ve been on the web or consumed some sort of news in the past two weeks, you probably know about the iPhone 4 “Death Grip,” the reception issue that seems to stem from the phone’s design. Apple said they’d fix the issue with how signal strength is portrayed on the phone in a new update. Shortly after, Consumer Reports said it can no longer recommend the phone because of the issue.

Apple sent out the beta of iOS 4.1 to developers today, and of course the claims that it could fix the problems were going to be tested. Well, it looks like Apple has certainly changed the way the bars are displayed, and has made the first three bars bigger to make them easier to see. However, the issue isn’t going away with the update. Placing your hand on the bottom left corner still causes bars to drop, which isn’t terribly surprising given that the problems always seemed to be more of a hardware issue.

Will the Next Apple TV Include 99-Cent Rentals?

Will the Next Apple TV Include 99-Cent Rentals?

Rumors of the next Apple TV have been running rampant since the iPad was announced. The most recent rumors are that the new version will have a much smaller box, with very little of no local storage to speak of. All the content would likely stream from the Internet or from other computers on the network. We’ve also been hearing that the next Apple TV could run on iOS – the same system as the iPad and iPhone.

A New Challenger Appears: Borders Enters the E-book Market

The e-book market is certainly heating up quite a bit. We’ve seen prices drop from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Sony, the rise of new mobile apps, new devices, and now another company is joining the fray. The second largest retail book store, Borders, is finally bringing itself into the expanding market.

Borders has been selling e-book readers for a few months now, both the Kobo Reader and the Aluratek Reader which cost $150 and $120, respectively. The chain has also had iOS apps out for a few weeks now, and along with the e-bookstore is launching apps for Android and BlackBerry devices. {Mashable}

Apple Admits to iPhone Reception Issues, Claims “Death Grip” Fix Will Come in Software Update

Apple Admits to iPhone Reception Issues, Claims "Death Grip" Fix Will Come in Software Update

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know that the iPhone 4 has been out for just over a week, and users are having some issues with the smartphone. The biggest problem is with the antenna, the fact that if the phone is held from the left side, covering the small black strip there will cause the phone to lose signal. Some have dubbed it the “iPhone Death Grip,” and it seems to be a problem with just about every device.

Apple initially issued a statement that all phones have spots on them where holding them will cause signal degradation. The newest response from Apple reads almost like a parody of the issues.
