Since the release of the new OS, v3.1, a number of applications have had some “issues”. Well, some of them are now fixed, so we thought we’d lay out some of the updates that application vendors have informed us of…
have released v1.2, which has the following new features:
- You can set up call forwarding from your – forward calls to a phone number when you’re not signed in, so you can pick up calls even when the app isn’t running on your device
- Improved performance and better audio quality when making -to- calls
- It’s even easier to send text messages (SMS) – you can now send SMSs from the Call tab
Devicescape have confirmed, that after their earlier problems, their Easy Wi-Fi client is now fully functional again, and have stated:
- First of all, Apple’s special support only applies to the original Easy Wi-Fi multi-network application (the one with the white icon). If you’re using any of the other Easy Wi-Fi apps, like the AT&T or T-Mobile version, you’ll need to install the original version too. It’s free in the AppStore. You don’t need to use it: just the act of installing it has the effect of telling the OS not to do “smart” stuff with your Wi-Fi connection in hotspots.
- Previously, we recommended installing Boingo because we knew it had the same effect. You don’t need Boingo anymore (unless of course you’re a user, and maybe you should think about becoming a user, it’s a great service!)
- Finally, if you’re one of the many iPod touch users who never upgraded from 2.x firmware, ignore all of this. You’re fine. The issue only occurs with OS 3.0, and if you upgrade you’ll be jumping past that version from now on.
Navigon have updated their Navigation application too (although not specificially for the new OS). As well as recently adding text-to-speech and iPod controls, they have now launched lifetime traffic (it needs a one time fee to activate).
TruPhone have addressed their problems with the latest OS, and they have confirmed that v3.0.3 of theirclient now works fully with the new OS.
