Big thanks to Vito Technologies, developers of Star Walk for sponsoring our RSS feed this week.

Star Walk is one of those applications that once you have it, you show it off to everyone you know. On my iPhone 3GS, I just launch the app and raise my phone up to the sky, positioning it like I'm looking through the phone. Star Walk automatically adjusts the view on the screen to show you annotated star charts of what you are looking out. So if you see a bright star in the sky, you can just raise you phone up to it and see what it's name is. Also great for finding constellations and searching for the position of stars.

But Star Walk is a lot more than that. They also include a time machine so that you can see what the stars look like at any time from any location. Astronomy picture of the day, integrated help, moon phases, and links to Wikipedia for more information on many of the objects in the app.

[Sponsor] SquareTrade iPhone Warranties Cover Accidents

Posted by Jeff Scott on September 2nd, 2009

This week's RSS feed sponsor is Square Trade. SquareTrade is a well respected extended warranty provider that has some great services at very reasonable prices for iPhone owners.

AppleCare does not cover you if you drop your iPhone or spill liquids on it. It only covers failures through normal use. That leaves you exposed because 80% of iPhone failures are from Accidents.

SquareTrade is the only licensed provider to cover failures from accidents and normal use. We will pay you cash in case of drops, spills, water damage, battery failures or any other failures from normal use or accidental damage.

SquareTrade is offering a special right now of 20% off the normal price if you follow

[/caption]WorldMate Gold is our sponsor this week for the 148Apps RSS feed.

WorldMate Gold has been updated to include push notification flight alerts. It's a fantastic use for push notifications. This updated version also includes the ability to suggest hotels based on your preferences for price, rating, etc. and then book them right on your iPhone.

The coolest feature remains the ability to forward your travel itinerary -- you know the confirmation emails you get from the airlines, hotels, etc -- to an email address and have them show up right in the app. You don't have to enter your travel plans, they just show up right in the app.

WorldMate Gold is available on the iTunes App Store.
