must-have downloads for the iPhone

this is actually just a little note for myself after reading the above blog entry.
what I selected for myself from that list are "best apps for taking photos", as the built in camera app is a little to simple of course:
  • $0.99 for "Camera Zoom"
  • $2.99 Pano
  • FREE Postino
there is another list of camera and imaging apps on the o'Reilly web site dedicated to the iPhone.
the best (and maybe only) app for running (yes, just "running") seems to be
  • $9.99 RunKeeper Pro
I am not sure I need the latter one, maybe a Windows app would do the job just as well and with a more convenient keyboard, I mean a real keyboard.

twitter for dummies

part 1 and part 2

tweet sheet

a nice litte PDF to print on paper, cut it out, and have it close to your device.

upgrading pidgin from SF.net instead of from openSuSE repositories

... is a real pain. 2.6.2 instead of 2.5.1 look worth it, esp. because the latter keeps on crashing shortly after start-up, but I removed it now altogether and will only use it on WinXP for the time being.

me on twitter

Jochen started tweeting ... -- yes, maybe that's not really, what the world was keeping its breath for ;-) but I thought, I give it a try.

No, I certainly don't want to have get SMSs at whatever time, I rather prefer a PC or iPhone multi-account application.
