If you’re obsessive about keeping your iPhone 4 scratch-free, there are a number of companies that offer shields including Zagg, Bodyguardz, SGP and Wrapsol among others. They all offer a high level of scratch protection. I recently installed the Wrapsol Device Protection on the iPhone 4. Join us after the break for installation and a full review.
For the consistently homebound who don’t get much use out of apps like FourSquare that display the nightly travels of imbibers, the new GetGlue app attempts to fill the void. Instead of checking into restaurants, bars, or coffee shops, GetGlue lets you “check in” when watching a movie or TV show, reading a book, listening to music, playing a video game, and even discussing a topic. Use the app to connect with friends via Facebook and Twitter to share what you’re doing and get recommendations for new movies and books based on your history.

Two threads have popped up in our forums, with people noting that the iPhone 4 proximity sensor turns on the screen too easily, which means buttons are pressed with your face, and accidental hangups.

You really have to press it against your ear. neo: I have hung up on people 3 times already while holding the phone to my ear with my shoulder (hands full). hitnrun: Has […]
There’s an interesting thread going on at the Apple Support Forums from a number of users who are finding that their iPhones seem to be transmitting data in the wee hours of the morning. Somewhere between 1 AM and 4 AM users are reporting late night data usage from a couple of kilobytes to 75MB and no-one really knows why. It’s far too large to be from visual voicemail, push notifications, or crash reports, and it seems to be hitting people consistently. Without official word from AT&T or Apple, it’s not known what’s causing this data drain. One possible explanation […]
At the risk of starting an all-out comment war about the terrors of third-party music player apps, it must be said: Most third-party music players for the iPhone are not up to par.

We would try to offer up some solutions, iPhone-style, for the guys being dragged along to the theater this weekend, but we’re pretty much at a loss on this one (try playing Plants and Zombies with the sound off, perhaps?). So instead, we thought we would satisfy a random query that […]
