I’ve had Flixster’s iPhone app for years. It’s been handy for staying abreast of upcoming movies and DVD releases. Along with movie synopses, it shows each movie’s Rotten Tomatoes score and has links to movie reviews.
This morning, I tapped on a movie to get more info. Up came a video ad that I couldn’t disable.
And -poof- I deleted Flixster’s app from my phone.
My iPhone 6s is 17 months old. I now need to carry a pocket battery pack with me. Gah
I just bought a blue WaveCradle. It passively amplifies the iPhone’s speaker. What it really does is look cool and redirect the sound output. Whatever. It works, I like it, so there you go.
Since upgrading my iPhone to iOS 5 and subscribing to iMatch, I’ve noticed that Playlists | Genius Playlist sometimes disappears from the Music app. Sometimes the menu item is there, and sometimes it’s not. Has anyone else seen this?
I protected my tweets on Twitter.
When you protect your tweets, you have to approve any new follower request.
This is easy if you use a desktop or laptop browser. But if you use a Twitter client application, or a mobile browser on Android or iPhone, you can’t approve new followers. In fact, you won’t even know about them. You’ll see new follower requests only if you view Twitter with a desktop browser. (I’m crawling slightly out on a limb here. I’ve tried a few iPhone apps, and none have let me approve follower requests. I can’t find references to Android apps that let you do this, either.)
This irks me.
