*Update Apple Stores are reported to be currently selling them for $69.95, no word yet on if a price fix is in the works or if this is an exclusive deal
belkin-tunecast-auto-liveOnly 7 months after the original press release Belkin’s new TuneCast Auto Live iPhone FM transmitter, which was originally tagged as being the first iPhone 3.0 accessory, is finally shipping. Physically the transmitter doesn’t look any different then many of the other transmitters on the market currently. It charges through the car’s 12-volt lighter outlet and connects through the dock adapter with a control module in between. What makes this one special though is the app, ClearSacn Live, that goes along with it. Not only can users manually control all of the frequencies from the iPhone interface but the ClearScan function uses the iPhone’s GPS locater (apparently this only works with a 3GS) to automatically find the strongest frequency for the best audio quality. The transmitter is retailing for $79.99 and the app is now on the App Store for free.

A Day In The Life

I’ll say it now – I’m an iPhone addict.

Every week, I have to go to a 12 step program designed to wean me off my addiction.* But, you know what? It’s not working. You see, to be cured of an addiction you have to want to be cured. I love my iPhone. It’s a part of my life. It’s never far from my grasp, and I use it many, many times throughout my day. I don’t want to be cured.

Paul Pelosi, look at his hands, is also an iPhone addict.

Paul Pelosi (look at his hands) is also an iPhone addict.

When I first got my iPhone, I was amazed – due to the superb implementation of the web, that I could actually use it to buy my wife’s Christmas presents… from the sofa… while she sat next to me. I would ask her what she wanted, she’d have a little think, then tell me, then I’d buy it, without her even realising her wishes were coming true within seconds of her uttering the words. She might as well have been saying abracadabra. It was magical, and exciting in a way only another iPhone-phile can understand.

This is how my iPhone and I spend the day.

Wake Up Call
Even before I awake, my iPhone is there for me, dragging me from my slumber with the sound of Marimba. Clock has become my Alarm Clock. I’ve even taught it not to wake me at all at the weekend – at those times my iPhone allows me to dream on (although my daughter does not respect the covenant me and the iPhone have made).

radio-plus-on-whiteI don’t know how excited you are about it, but Slacker just updated their mobile app! For those of you who have never used Slacker, it is basically Pandora but with a larger library… which means less repeats and more awesomeness. In their own words, “The Slacker Radio application for iPhone offers listeners millions of songs, high-quality sound and an intuitive interface,” said Jonathan Sasse, senior vice president of marketing at Slacker. “With new features and sleek usability upgrades we are continuing to make the listening experience even more powerful and easy to use.”

To celebrate the update, Slacker has given me a 1 year subscription to Slacker Radio Plus (full description here) to give out however I please. Mwahaha. So here is what I would like you, the reader to do. I am looking for some good music, and I want you, dear reader, to tell me what to listen to.

I am going to take each entry (example entry – CCR) and play it as a Slacker playlist. The best Slacker playlist to come from the artist or song that you give me wins the prize. I’ll listen to any genre, as long as it’s good music, so don’t ask me what my favorite genre is.

Good Luck! Send me some good stuff… and thanks in advance.

All entries should either be posted in the comments section of this page or sent to me via Twitter (@148apps). Contest will close Sunday night with the winner being selected on Monday to much fanfare. One note from Slacker… the winner must have a valid email address already configured for Slacker (i.e. they already use Slacker with it)… so go get one, they are free.

Rule 1. Enter as many times as you want.
Rule 2. Tell all of your friends to send me their music entries
Rule 3. Don’t send me anything from the Baja Men.

FREE!

MLB.com At Bat 2009

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
From the makers of... baseball, comes the best non game app that I have on my iPhone. Not only can I keep track of every game with pitch-by-pitch coverage, but I can also listen to my favorite radio broadcast, streaming from any teams broadcasting team that I want it from. Stomaching the Astros losing night after night has never been sweeter.

Radio Flare

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Radio Flare is a musical side-scrolling shooter with a soundtrack that dynamically morphs as you play, responding to your actions. While I love the audio and believe that its spot as an IGF finalist in Audio Achievement is definitely deserved, the core gameplay ultimately failed to hook me.
