iPhone Facebook App Crashing? Found a fix!

Posted in Daily by fernieville on May 24, 2010

I was having issues with my iPhone Facebook app crashing during status updates and not sending that update. Also it was slow as molasses. I would allow me to comment but took forever to post that comment! and it allowed me to post a pic, but would crash immediately after posting. Syncing with iTunes didn’t help, neither did an uninstall/install. But on a whim, I logged out of Facebook within the app, returned to home, reopened the app, then logged back in… and its alive and well again. Weird. But fixed. ¬†Something about memory files maybe?

iPhone review: Fring VOIP Skype

Posted in Apple, geek, iPhone 2.0, Software by fernieville on October 6, 2008

I downloaded this and I have to say it was OK.  The call worked, but the call quality if awful.  I get much better call quality on Skype on my laptop, but for some reason the quality of the call on the iPhone is very much reduced.  It’s particular to the application because if you call their test number you’ll also hear the same poor call quality.

Also the delay is pretty horrendous.  Last time I remember a delay this bad was calling foreign countries back in the 80’s.  I’m not sure, but it seems that everything goes through the Fring servers, if so, I can’t see the reason for this at all.  Hopefully they’ll either fix this or something else will come along.

Bottom line:  use it in a pinch if you really have to.

hello from iPhone 2.0

Posted in Apple, iPhone 2.0, ipwnage 2.0, quals, tennis by fernieville on July 14, 2008

I’m back to legit iPhone land. No jailbreak, no hacks, no BSD subsystem and really slow show off terminals. The free apps on iTunes are nice and mobile WordPress is ok.

In other news I played a tennis tournament and our team got second place yay… But I fell and retired a game and came home with a nasty inversion sprain.

Lastly quals are killing my soul and sucking the living life out of me and this the lack of posts.

Ooh I forgot to mention the yiphone/ipwnage drama that should unfold tomorrow. It’s like a reality TV drama with really smart geeks. Hehe
