Personalizing your iPhone wallpaper isn’t a difficult process, the hard part is finding the right image. This could be made a great deal easier with the recently updated iWallpapers app from JokeShuffle.net. The free app offers over 15,000 images with more added daily, all sized to perfectly fit your iPhone or iPod touch screen. The images are also of surprisingly good quality across a wide range of categories from movies to sports.

What sets this app apart from its rivals is a unique navigation and feedback system that makes picking a background easier and keeps the focus on the images not menus. When viewing a background, a translucent bar floats to the side of the image and offers a number of options from downloading the image to your phone, through giving feedback and even watching a slideshow of images within this category. The app requires an internet connection to work properly and we would recommend Wi-Fi to keep things running smoothly. As it’s free, iWallpapers is also ad-supported, but beyond this it’s a brilliant tool to have to hand when you feel like spicing up your iPhone and will also become even more important when the custom background feature in iPhone OS 4.0 is released.

Until just recently, app store downloads over EDGE or 3G have been limited to 10MB in size. Shoppers can now proceed to download files up to 20MB before having to use a Wi-Fi connection or iTunes on their computers.

The cap has been in place to presumably temper data usage on AT&T’s network, and many developers have sought to keep their applications under the previous 10MB limit in an effort to never discourage a sale.

The quiet increase to a 20MB cap size is now in effect for both app store and iTunes over-the-air purchases, and arrives fairly close to the impending release of the iPad.

Trackr might be the first app to let you remotely start torrent downloads, but that doesn't mean it's anywhere near decent. This RSS reader/torrent downloader mash-up fails in both categories.

Save My Docs 2.0

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
While Save My Docs is a one trick pony, all it does is save documents viewed within Safari and then allow you to view them within the app, it does it fairly well. Other viewers offer a variety of ways to get documents onto your iPhone, but Save My Docs is novel and useful.
