Installer.app Almost Ready for Release [Firmware 2.0]

24 07 2008

The RiP Dev team today announced the imminent arrival of their fourth version of Installer.app. This version will be able to be used with the recently released 2.0 firmware for iPod touches and iPhones. From what Gizmodo is reporting, the new version will contain multi-threading “meaning everything doesn’t come to a halt while your sources are being updated” and support for package dependencies. By the looks of the screenshots posted on the RiP Dev Blog, they are looking to match the style of the App Store. It also appears to look less cluttered than before. The proposed released date for the app is sometime in the next week.





WordPress For iPhone

Early today, WordPress released their brand new iPhone and iPod touch app into the App Store. As of right now, I can tell to covers basically every blogging function in WordPress and places it in this great package. The option to preview a post is a great feature that I wouldn’t have expected to been implemented in the initial release, but non-the-less it was brought to us.
The only function I would like to see added as of right now would be the addition of blog stats like the ones on their website (and obviously you can’t view the graphs in Mobile Safari because of the lack of Flash).
Overall, this is a very nicely designed app and am excited to test it out further on the near future.

Note: This entire post was written through the WordPress app.
