iPhone App?

It seems the iPhone app for Instructables doesn't work for me on my iPod Touch. When i try to download it, a message pops up saying "The item you tried to buy is no longer aailable." Any ideas on how i could get it to work.

Instructables for iPhone

Don't you hate it, when you've finished building something outside and you've forgotten your camera? Can't wait to publish an instructable when you're out and about, and have no access to a computer? Both of these have happened to me, and I had a good idea. I propose an iPhone app for instructables. This app would be better than browsing on your internet browser on the iPhone because it would be made for the iPhone screen rather than for a 16:9 monitor. I think that it should have at least the following features:  * Offline Instructable Editor  * Instructable uploader  * Online instructable browser  * User page, in which you can check comments and edit your profile etc.  * Onboard instructable saver - instead of having to go online and browse the site to find the instructable again, the app could have, for example, 2MB of allocated memory in which to save one or more simple pdf files or similar of instructables, which may be viewed at any time, even when the internet connection is faulty. I truly believe that this has potential, and I just hope that the admins see this. I don't have the means, funds or time to make this app but hopefully somebody does.  Feel free to post any more ideas, as this would be a community app and I'd like it to be suitable for as many people as possible.

Iphone charger, 1A.

Hello I have a Iphone 3Gs with the original Iphone charger. On the charger it says that it supply's  5V,1 A, and a normal computer usb-port supply's 5V,0.5 A. Is it safe to use my mp3player with the Iphone charger? On my mp3 players charger it sayd 0.5 A but I lost it. Can my mp3 player's battery break if I use double the current that is recommended? Question 2: If I buy those Iphone chargers on ebay, is it safe to use them on my Iphone? cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll Question 2: If I leave my charger in the outlet will it still draw current? Without any devices attached to it?

New iphone 6?

The say we, the iPhone 6 is still quite far from its 'official sunrise' but rather as close as it advances now seem to be the two official versions of the device, while the price of the basic model would be around the 710 euro and then a figure even lower than the launch of the iPhone 5S 16 GB (729 €). On the price, in fact, we feed more than a suspicion that they may arrive at certain levels, but never say never, especially if the version phablet will come to the top of the hill 900 Euros and will represent the true top of the line. So, in summary, and using as a yardstick the dollar, the iPhone economy is expected to cost between 650 and 800 dollars, while the Apple iPhablet would bring with it a price that the sfiorerebbe 950-1000 dollars.

Hulu App For Iphone!

Big news for the iPhone and iPod touch owners! Hulu is finally developing an app for the iPhone.From cNet news...Silicon Alley Insider is reporting that a dedicated Hulu application is indeed on its way to the iPhone and should be here in just a few months.SAI says the application will work over Wi-Fi and AT&T;'s 3G network, meaning that users will be able to view programming anywhere with a fast data connection.Rumors suggesting that an iPhone-friendly version of Hulu swirled around this time last year, however, they predated the launch of the App Store, and Hulu flat-out denied that one was being worked on.This time around, though, it's far more plausible, with the upcoming iPhone OS 3.0 software update, which lets developers bake streaming media into their applications. For Hulu, this means that the advertising could be stuck into the mobile stream and that users would be able to watch videos without leaving the application.One of the things that keep this rumor from holding water is that Hulu is in direct competition with Apple's iTunes business. Users of Hulu can watch ad-supported, full-length television shows and movies on their personal computers for free, instead of paying Apple to download a copy for offline viewing.If such an app were available on the iPhone, it would also offer portable TV and movie watching, something not yet offered in Apple's own mobile iTunes app, which is limited to video podcasts. In past instances of this, the company has simply denied applications such as Podcaster from making it through the app approval process, only to launch it as a first party feature later on.On the other hand, some of Hulu's competitors have already gotten a foot in the door, including Joost and CBS-owned TV.com, which has its own iPhone application that streams in content in chunks. In addition, Google's YouTube, whose application comes preinstalled on the iPhone, has recently reached an agreement with major studios, including Sony Pictures, Lions Gate Entertainment, and CBS (publisher of CNET News), to offer visitors full-length TV shows and feature films.If Hulu can't manage to pull off getting advertisements in the stream, using this system, it would be fairly simple to force users to sit through advertisements between clips.Link.

iphone solar charger (again)

Have read through alot of topics but cant find my question answered... If i use 5v solar panels, with lets say 1000mA  power, and simply solder wires from panels to a female usb connector ex. if i buy a usb extension (male one end /female other end) and cut away the male part and solder the other female part to panels would this simple circuit charge a iphone ,,or would there have to be other electronic parts involved to make charging happen? If this does not work , im thinking of buying a car usb socket and solder to 12-15v panels ,   that should be bombproof as long as you now that the specific socket works with iphone right ? Downside of that , as i read somewhere on the net is that you loose power when transforming current down from 12 to 5v ? is that right ok hope someone has got a answer to me  regards

Iphone 4S Internal Speaker? Answered

I just purchased an Iphone 4S from verizon 2 days ago, it is the white model. However, the Internal Speaker will not work, and has never worked for anything: Apps, Music, Videos, Ringtones, etc. I made sure the phone was not on silent mode and the volume was up high.  I thought that the headphone detection could be malfunctioning, however when in music, I set the volume to highest possible with no headphones and then plugged in my headphones and the volume bar went to the previous setting with headphones. This makes me assume that it knows to play out of the speakers. Help would be appreciated, if the solution is not fixed, I will be trading in the phone at verizon.

iPhone app For Making an Instructable

An idea I have is for an app, for iPhone or Android or both, which is used to make an Instructable. This would mean using the built-in phone camera to take the necessary photos, in order, for each step of the Instructable. Then the user would be able to add text, photo tags, and other things included in the Instructable-making process, without having to transfer their photos to a computer and upload them to Instructables. They would simply upload the finished product directly to the site. I would make this myself, but my knowledge of the required software is very basic. I might be able to do it, as long as I had some help, and information on the formatting used on this site i.e colors, logos, basic layout, etc

So the question: is it possible that I can mill myself an iphone case, probably out of wood (I prefer aluminum/stainless steel but that might just scratch the heck out of the phone), and if so, what type of wood should i use (I am clueless... not a carpenter :D ), any ways, any thoughts, or maybe someone has tried it before? Just though it would be a cool project if I could make it happen...

Altoids Tin Can Charger

Hi, ive made an Altoids tin can charger awhile back and it chargers all my devices but my iphone 5s? Its charges my iphone 5, 4, 4s, and every ipod. What circuitry do i need to allow my charger to charge my iphone 5s? Right now i have a 5v regulator and 2x 200ohm resistors off the positive lead into the positive, data -, and data + connections. Should i add capacitors on the inputs and outputs of the 5v regulator?  The only reason i build my own chargers is because i take long trains rides and flights and i use my rc car 5000mah battery that can last me a week, i put all the circuitry in an Altoids can to hold it together.
