Welcome to my iPhone mobile blog

Hello all,
My name is Adam, aka "Dr-Adam" and I started this website iWishItDaily.com to post my daily rantings and ravings about the iPhone. I'll be publishing them live from my iPhone to this website, for you all to read and comment on, or complain...or call me an idiot if you wish...
it still won't slow my propeller hat down any. heheh
Oh, and I
plan to also include daily screenshots of different apps and such as well.
Hope you enjoy it!

iPhone antenna

Why is I can't find ANY wireless networks untill I turn my phone
upside down and hit Rescan. Who ever thought it was a great idea to
put the antenna on the BOTTOM of a handheld device anyway???

iPhone Locate Me

Wow, this Locate Me app is pretty cool. I never noticed before I shot this screenshot that it figures out and shows my latitude and longitude before it switches to map view to plot my location (which it was getting ready to do).
Great map/GPS type app!

iPhone application problems

My wish today is that my phone wasn't messed up again.
Some application has it so goofed up I can't use the buttons in any of my other apps at all. It won't even go in standby properly in that the screen only dims instead of going black. I should have known when I saw the black and white bars when I went to restart it after it hung. Too bad I don't remember which app I was using when it hung because I was trying out a few different new ones. I think maybe it was iFob.
Well, I'm trying a 10 minute power off to see if that will at least let me use uninstaller. That seemed to work the last time when the other screenshot application put me in this same mess.
Wish me luck.

iPhone TouchBar

This is a pretty cool idea. It would be nice though if there was a way to browse alphabetically to find them faster. Great job on the iPhone TouchBar so far... can't wait to see what features are coming next.

MXTube mute

Iphone wishes - wish-o-the-day...
I wish the audible/vibrate switch on the side of the iPhone could
actually mute the MXTube app.

iPhone Installer / Updater

iPhone wishes o-the-day :
I wish the Installer app only showed me available updates that are
compatible with my current firmware version. That way I won't keep
getting the error message that won't allow me to use the Update All
feature.

Twinkle not working

Just installed Twinkle on my iPhone but apparently it won't work on
mine. It tries to load but the screen is black and then the
application closes itself.
Strange.

iPhone screenshot + iPhone automatic updates

Been slacking off with this, I know. Sorry. Been slammed. Here's my latest Summerboard screenshot.

And for my latest iPhone wishes.... If you notice in my screenshot, I have 5 panels now of desktop icons. As you can imagine, I can really get assaulted with updates when they all decide to make a minor tweak for compliance.
I wish there was an app to do "Update All" on a schedule that I can set so that I don't have to spend so much time manually updating my apps.

Later,

Adam

iPhone ringtones

Seems like it would be easy to just add sound files somewhere without using iTunes but I haven't figured out the secret yet. I know an iPhone ringtone app would be awesome but I'd be happy just to be able to add ringtones manually.

iPhone domain search app

Wouldn't it be great if you could search for available domains any time anywhere? An iPhone domain search app tool would be so useful for many people who need to buy domain names and, like me, tend to think of good names at the wrong time.

Just a thought...

iPhone Screenshot problem - blinking screen with black bars

This Screenshot application has completely messed up my phone.
When I go into applications the touch screen stops working.
When I try to put the phone in standby the screen only
dims instead of going off (wasting the battery).
When I put it on the charger the screen starts blinking with
black and white stripes. (Looks just like this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-S3cCdLDNg&feature=related
)
This last one makes me think this is some kind of joke
related to the phrase "jailbroken".
Even after attempting to reboot the phone the madness doesn't end.

Someone else (iphonecrazzy) summed it up perfectly:
"phone booted...Eureka..everything normal but strangely still
the wicked screenshot icons where still visible...
as if laughing at me saying didnt we screw ur happiness??..."

My thoughts exactly. You can read the rest here:

Someone needs to put a stop to this bad app..

How this lousy Screenshot app messes up your phone:
1. Sleep/wake button doesn't work right. Screen only dims for me
2. Power off with the sleep/wake button doesn't stop the
screenshot application from running. It is still running when you
power back up. This is not right. It is almost like it is only
faking a power down with the apple screen somehow.
3. Sometimes when using the sleep button you end up with
a black blinking screen (which you can only tell it's doing that
in certain light). Another battery waster for sure.
4. Hard reset by holding the sleep button and the home button for
a number of seconds can cure most of these goofy hangups....as
long as you are sure it is all the way off. Once it is off completely,
leave it off for 10 minutes before rebooting.
5. After rebooting the floating screenshot icons should be gone.
If they are gone then you can safely go to Installer and uninstall
the Screenshot application.

If you are anywhere near as annoyed as me, please contact them at:

iPhone Screenshot program sucks

The iPhone Screenshot program sucks.
The iPhone Screenshot program sucks!
Let me make myself clear....
The iPhone Screenshot program by Robota Softwarehouse sucks!
It will freeze your phone up and make it useless.
You will have flashing black and white bars/lines with the apple
symbol in the background. You touch screen will stop working in
applications.
Screenshot flashing screen of death. You can see it here:

iPhone voice recognition

Now that's what I was wishing for... Voice recognition for the
iPhone.
Still a little buggy but it rocks already!

iPhone Listen music recognition app

I sure wish this app would work. It never manages to connect to its
server. Never has. Bummer. Maybe because I don't use Edge???
The iPhone Listen app is an awesome idea if it would only work.

iPhone voicemail button

I could not recall my Cingular voicemail phone number to call voice mail from my iPhone and neither the voicemail button nor the "hold the 1 button" was working.

Well coincidentally (or not... these days nothing seems to be coincidental) I just happened to be curious what I got when I dialed my own number and ran across something nice:

Whodathunkit... I can just dial my own 10 digit cell number from my phone and it now goes straight to my VM. No passwords or anything.

That seems to open a few doors that I wish were closed. I should not need to explain further. Therein lies my iPhone wish of the day.

iPhone installer update

Another of my iPhone wishes has been granted! The iPhone installer icon now shows how many updates are available.
It doesn't go check on its own yet though but it is a great start.

iPhone junk mail spam blocker

iPhone wish of the day:
Junk mail filtering would be helpful.

iPhone Apollo problem

I love this iPhone Apollo app but I really wish you could set a status or away message. Just recently it has started acting up too and sometimes it doesn't acknowledge that I have signed on from another location.
Otherwise it is great!

iPhone Installer Improvement suggestion





















I was thinking it would be nice if the iPhone installer icon showed the number of available updates waiting...similar to the way the email and SMS ones do. Seems like I open that app at least a few times a day to check things out.
Actually, separate iPhone Installer and Updater icons would be ideal so that we could also maybe see how many new apps were created that day on an icon without opening Installer.

Thank you Erica Sadun for the John Tool!

Thanks to the John Tool by Erica Sadun I can finally lock my iPhone
and put it in my pocket without losing my wifi connection. My first
iPhone wish has been answered!

iPhone Navizon

Seems like a cool idea but it could never figure out where I am located.
Always ended up with an error message.

iPhone wish of the day.....
A working GPS that still works when Edge is turned off.

iPhone wishes

iPhone wish of the day:

It would be nice if the weather icon had the current temperature on it like the calendar has the date.

After all, it isn't always 73 and sunny like the default one shows.

iPhone snapshot and my daily wish

IPhone wish-o-the-day:
iPhone Plundr
Are you working on that Loki?

Crazy flying iPhone icons

This is actually the very helpful iPhone application called "Dock" built by Nate True, caught doing what it does best...but at the wrong time.
This is actually the app I use for my screenshots but usually it hides itself before doing the capture. Cool app though...it also lets you switch to another app without going back to the main screen.
A helpful timesaver to say the least.

iPhone Screensaver App

Just thinking today, I wish my iPhone had a screensaver feature so I could set it to blank the screen after a certain number of minutes. I need to leave mine on so it stays connected to my WiFi for mail and ICQ (Apollo) so I basically leave it all lit up when I put it in my pocket. Really runs the batteries down fast that way.

Anyway, that's my wish for the day...
Apple iPhone Screensaver app

Utterz mobile blogging

Why I no longer am using Utterz for posting from my iPhone



Their blog content pages cannot be read on iPhones! At least until we get Flash support.

Blogger FTP not connecting

If this Blogger FTP keeps lagging the way it is I am going to need to build my own local blogger app using Coldfusion and MySQL and be done with it. I never expected to have so many issues with an established application.
Pfffft
