How to transfer purchased applications from one iPhone to another

 

I have been asked so many times lately  if it’s possible to transfer purchased applications from one iPhone to another and if it’s possible how to do it. Well the simple and direct answer is yes and the method is published on the web but to make it available for my visitors I will re-published here as below

Step 1

Download and install the latest version of iTunes (see Resources).

Step 2

Launch iTunes on the computer and click the “Store” menu heading, followed by “Sign In.”

Step 3

Enter the account username and password used by one of the iPhones to log into iTunes. This ensures that both the iPhone and iTunes are linked to the previously purchased content you wish to share.

Step 4

Connect the iPhone to the computer using its USB cable, and click the “Sync” button in iTunes. All the content currently stored on the iPhone is transferred to the iTunes library on the computer.

Step 5

Launch the “Settings” application on the other iPhone and tap the “Store” button. Enter the same username and password used when logging into iTunes.

Step 6

Connect the second iPhone to the computer using the USB cable, and click the “Sync” button in iTunes. The content from the first iPhone is now synchronized with the second iPhone at no extra cost.

 

 

 

ICam Concept

iCam Concept: How iPhone 5 Could Kill The Digital Camera For Good!

Posted: 12 Dec 2011 07:24 PM PST

As I’ve mentioned in the past, the iPhone is a decent tool for photographers – dual cameras, amazing picture quality and good video recording capabilities. However, it’s no match for a high-end digital camera in many ways. In the past, we’ve covered several third-party accessories (Go Pano Micro, Lens Filter Kit, Photojojo SLR mount etc.) that can improve the photography experience on your iPhone. However, by my own honest admission, the iCam concept belongs to a different league.

Published by ADR Studio, the iCam concept is rumored to be present in the iPhone 5 (yes, iPhone 5). Simply put, the iCam is case which can snap on to an iPhone 5 to turn it into a high-end DSLR. It includes interchangeable lenses, a huge image sensor, hardware controls, a preset wheel and it would use the iPhone 5 as an image processor.

 

As evident in the above pics, the iCam case could be snapped to the iPhone device, making it look like a high-end digital camera. In terms of physical appearance, I have to say that the  all-aluminum chassis looks gorgeous. The concept proposes that when the iPhone 5 is docked, it will launch an app that controls the iCam, and provides information and touch screen buttons to help control the next exposure. The images you shoot will be stored directly on the iPhone camera roll thereby making it convenient for instantaneous sharing.

Steve Jobs always said he wanted to revolutionize technology and the iCam concept definitely looks to be a step in the right direction. Of course, financial viability of iCam can be a major deterrent as it evolves from a concept to a production ready accessory. None the less, there’s no denial that iCam has the potential to revolutionize the digital camera market. The major limitation – owning an iPhone 5 would be a prerequisite and that’s not an ideal scenario for everybody.

What do you think about iCam? If Apple makes uses this concept in iPhone 5, will you buy it? Please share your opinion by leaving a comment.

Office 2 HD Review: Your Microsoft Office on iPad

I have been looking for an Office Suite for the iPad for a long time.  In this arena, Documents to Go rules.  But I wanted to try out an alternative.  I read decent reviews about Office 2 HD and downloaded it.  I am happy to report that it is now my go-to App for reading and editing Office documents on my iPad.
Office 2 HD is a first cloud-friendly productivity option for the iPad. The app integrates file-sharing feature in iTunes or you can set up access to a cloud service such as Google Docs, MobileMe, DropBox, MyDisk, Box or others.

The new iPhone is expected to be thinner, equip with faster processor and boast the built-in camera to 8-megapixel. Hopefully, the iPhone 5 will come with a revamped design.
So are you going to purchase the new iPhone? If your answer is positive and you do not plan to keep your iPhone 4, get ready to sell it! Apparently, the value of current iPhone models will be declined rapidly once Apple officially announces the next iPhone.
According to BGR, the average selling price of Apple’s iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G dropped between 10% and 15% by the time Apple announced the iPhone 4 on June 7th. By the time Apple’s iPhone 4 launched in late June 2010, eBay resale values of the iPhone 3GS had further dropped by roughly 22%.
