Like a passport on your phone, Gowalla is an amazing new and social way to record your memories, keep up with your friends, share your favorite places and discover the the world around you. Find out where your friends are, then check in, share a comment or post a photo to let them know what you're up to.

Check in when you're on the coffeeshop, at the game, on vacation or simply enjoying the park down the street. With Gowalla, it's never been more fun to share and discover the world around you. Go with us!

What's New In This Version:
Gowalla 3 has been re-imagined from the ground up!

THINGS WE MADE NEW
+ New, Faster Check In: With a single tap, Gowalla intelligently predicts which spot you're at based on your history. Start typing a message while your phone is locating you.
+ Share your check-ins with Facebook Places, Twitter, Foursquare and Tumblr.
+ Connect your Facebook and Foursquare accounts to see what all your friends are up to in one place!

+ Add and browse Highlights for your city, like Best Cup, Family Night and My Happy Place.
+ Bookmark a spot to remember nearby favorites and faraway dreams.
+ Flag a Spot to report problems or closed locations while you're on the go.
+ All-new drop-dead gorgeous design. We've re-imagined Gowalla and made it more beautiful and easy to use than ever.


THINGS WE MADE BETTER

CallLock May Solve Your iPhone 4 Proximity Sensor Woes




CallLock is a new Cydia tweak that can manually or automatically lock your iPhone screen during a call. For those who accidentally press buttons with their cheek a locked screen will prevent accidental mutes, hangups, and keypad dialing. This is a common occurrence for iPhone 4 owners with a faulty proximity sensor.

MANUAL MODE:
CallLock will override the default action of the Power button during a call to lock the screen instead of the normal end call action.

AUTOMATIC MODE:
CallLock will automatically lock your screen as soon as a incoming or outgoing call is connected.

CallLock is enabled in manual mode by default. To enable CallLock automatically you must turn on the feature from inside your Settings app. No new icons will be added to your home screen.

You can purchase the tweak for $0.99 from the Cydia Store.

Apple and Publishers Still Don't See Eye to Eye on iTunes Subscriptions




Apple and magazine publishers still don't see eye to eye on iTunes subscriptions, according to a MediaMemo report.

Publishers want the ability to sell the subscriptions themselves, or at least the opportunity to hang on to subscribers’ personal data. And Steve Jobs won't let them.

Sources say Apple is offering:
● The ability to sell app subscriptions through iTunes.
● 70 percent of the revenue from each sale.
● The ability to offer an opt-in form for subscribers that would ask them for a limited amount of information: Name, mailing address, email address.

Apple has reportedly had their offer on the table for months but none of the big publishers are interested in giving Apple 30% and not receiving the credit card data for their customers. That information is valuable to them for marketing and bundles.

Publisher are now looking with hope towards the influx of Android tablets.

iPhone Dev-Team Announces New Improved Hactivation Method




The iPhone Dev-Team has announced a new hactivation method by sbinger that provides the full benefit of push applications and increases battery life substantially

Developer @sbingner (author of TetherMe) has made some excellent progress devising a new hactivation method that kills two birds with one stone for all you ultrasn0w unlockers. His tool, “Subscriber Artificial Module (SAM)” tricks your iPhone and iTunes into creating legitimate activation tickets even though you’re unlocked with ultrasn0w. This means you get the full benefit of push applications, and your battery life increases substantially. If you’d like to try it out, check out http://www.bingner.com/SAM.html

To help make it easier to try out @sbingner’s tool, we’ve updated redsn0w to include a new “Deactivate” option for the 3G and 3GS. Use this option *after* you’ve installed SAM…it will remove the normal patches made to lockdownd and let SAM take over. (sbingner plans on making a button to do this within SAMPrefs too). Great work, @sbingner!

You can download the new version of RedSn0w:
Mac OS X
Windows
