This must be annoying for a lot of people. Watching a video on your iPhone or iPod touch or iPad and all of a sudden the lock screen appears and the video is paused. You will either have to increase the wait time of your lock screen or let it go altogether which is what I did with my iPod touch. But with this new app available on Cydia, you can continue to watch the video even when the lock screen appears.

Apple has finally pulled one of the most popular Media Player apps on the App Store: VLC Media Player. VLC app lets you play popular media formats on your iPhone and iPad without first converting them to an iPhone or iPad supported format (MP3, MP4). VLC app has been removed from the App Store on the request of developer Rémi Denis-Courmont who argued that the app violates VLC's GNU Public License and therefore should be removed from the store.

Some photos were leaked on the web yesterday of (rumored) the next iPhone 5. It would have been a regular story that went unnoticed except that this time Apple intervened and took those videos detailing the design of the next iPhone from YouTube. This could only mean one thing: The leaked design photos have to be that of actual iPhone!

The next version of Google’s OS for mobile devices, Android version 3.0 codenamed “Handroid_3.0_honeycomboney comb” is not expected to be released in a tablet until later this year but Google , first accidently, uploaded a teaser video of the awesomeness of Android 3.0 on YouTube and quickly pulled it off but that small duration was enough for some to record the video. Google has now officially released the video and a small description of it’s Android 3.0 on it’s blog.

iPad 2 is (rumored) to be released in the first quarter of 2011. Apple has so far sold 16 million iPad units since it’s launch and it controls around 70% of the tablet PC market right now. Needless to say, iPad is a huge hit (in a positive way for Apple and negative way for Microsoft). Out of these 16 million iPad units sold, about 10.5 million units are iPad 3G models which proves that users want internet connectivity all the time and connectivity should not be tied to the availability of the Wi-Fi network.

Before this year closes, make sure you get all of at least most of these really useful apps on your iPad. Currently there are more then a million apps listed on the App Store and you will find a couple of lists around the web listing some essential apps in different categories. In this article I have compiled a list of apps categorically put in News, Music, Gaming, Reading and a bunch of other categories. If there’s an app you think is missing from the list and should be added in the essentials list then do suggest!

Web 2.0 is here to stay and the web technologies that made it “2.0” have also matured enough to move on to Web 3.0? Web is more intelligent, user friendly and interactive. Rich Internet Applications (RIA) have successfully caught the users’ attention and brought the desktop experience to browser. The transformation of desktop experience to browser played a key role in quick adoption of web 2.0. In this article we will take a look at some of the JavaScript APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that made it all happen.

Earlier this year, Steve Jobs was grilled at the D8 regarding the faulty iPhone 4 antenna and he was not sure whether his engineers will come up with a fix. Initially, around the release of iPhone 4 when hundreds of thousands of users reported that they could not maintain their phone call for more then 30 seconds even in areas where they’re good coverage, Apple denied all that, blaming AT&T’s overcrowded networks but with time it became clear that iPhone 4 has some antenna issues.

HTML5 is gaining a lot of steam lately but it’s ultimate test would be to bring to the browser what it’s rival Flash is already doing – Interactive browser based games. So I thought of compiling a list of browser based games that have been released or are in testing phase. All of these games are purely coded in HTML5 and most of these are even Open Source so if you want to try out building something for your own idea, you can use their codebase.

This app has to be the best app of this year. One word describes it: Stunning. A small design studioword_lens_translate_iphone called QuestVisual that consists of only 2 programmers (apparently) has just released an app called WordLens. So what’s so stunning about it? You can translate anything into multiple languages with your iPhone camera and the translated text is embedded back into the image and you won’t even notice that something has changed, it’s so natural! Just in case, this is what Virtual Reality is all about, embedding artificially generated content into the real images.

If you are starting off with writing some JavaScript, the first step is to choose an IDE (Integrated Development Environment). An IDE typically includes a Compiler, Code Editor (with/without Intellisense) and a Debugger. There are tons of additional features that almost every IDE now includes but these are the basic components. Let’s start with a list of possible IDEs you can use for writing JavaScript and debugging them.

What better gift for winters then the gloves that would work with capacitive touch screens (iPhone, iPod touch and iPad). A while back there were reports of Apple filing a patent for capacitive-touch-sensitive gloves. Guess what, you don’t always need a patent to launch such a simple utility. You can grab your pair from “Agloves”, the company behind these capacitive-screen-sensitive gloves.
