There is an inbuilt timelapse function now added to the iPhone in subsequent years and I often just use that now, the only advantage to using a proper app for timelapse is that you can set the interval. On the iPhone version, you have to run with the interval set on the phone, but maybe you want once a minute or once every 10 minutes, using a dedicated timelapse app is the best way to get the result you want and the best way to ensure that you have a good final timelapse. Remember to plug your phone into a power supply or power bar as these apps do drain the battery quite a bit over the time required.

This is just an update regarding the iKitt iPhone App’s operation as a speedometer using GPS as you are travelling.
Turn the iPhone on its side and you get the classic Knight Rider / Kitt speedometer. As the iPhone gathers the GPS coordinates and positioning it calculates the actual speed you are doing (please do not do this when driving!! I don’t want people telling me they crashed when trying this out!).
A screenshot of the app in operation is shown below.
The speed of the iKitt speedometer is not realtime, sometimes it will update once a second sometimes longer. However it is quite accurate. The actual speed when testing above was approx 90kph.
I was very tempted to try this in a 737 when taking off from Gatwick recently but felt the “Please turn off all mobile devices” was enough to get me to turn it off.
Its a very good app and well worth the €0.79c price tag on the iTunes App Store, even if it is just for the retro sentimentality.
If you run a WordPress blog and you have an iPhone (or indeed an iPod Touch) then the WordPress iPod App is for you.
You can run multiple blogs using the same App. There was a previous version of the WordPress App but if you had this old version WordPress for iPhone 2 or 2.1 won’t automatically update the old app to 2.0.
The new WordPress App has a better user interface overhaul, some improvements to the software, some bug fixes, as well as some requests.
The WordPress App 2.0 and 2.1 allows you to add and update your posts and blog pages.
The updates in the 2.0 / 2.1 version of the app are.
* A better user interface making it easy to view comments, posts, and pages with a brand new comments interface
* Posts are automatically saved and restored if network connection is lost during publishing
* The WordPress App re-opens in the blog you last used
* You can manually enter the XMLRPC endpoint for non-standard setups – other XML issues resolved.
* Fixed edge case where local drafts were sometimes not saved
* Fixed the order of photos so that they’re displayed in the order they’re uploaded
* A post or page can be deleted by swiping across its title in the Posts or Pages list
* People who made comments, their email addresses are now visible
* Fixes for the link helper, errors in using the more tag, Comments section and URL issues.
The benefit of this great App is that you can compose a few blog entries even without WiFi or 3G connection. As soon as you have connection you can just hit the post button and update to your hearts content.
You can Download the WordPress iPod App from the iTunes App Store.
