How To Recalibrate Your iPad and iPhone Home Button If It’s Not Working

How-To-Recalibrate-Your-iPad-and-iPhone-Home-Button

I posted recently on an alternative fix for the iPhone home button if it’s getting less responsive like needing a really hard press to get it to respond. That was using Assistive Touch which is a feature found on iOS 5 and can save you some presses and prolong the lifespan of the button but now apparently you can fix the problem by just recalibrating it.

Stanford Fall 2011 CS193p Lecture Videos out on iTunes

Stanford-Fall-2011-iPhone-iPad-Development-CS193pIf you are one of those who’s wondering how you can dive into the App Store goldmine rush, then what better than to learn iPhone and iPad development. Stanford has been releasing some great lecture videos for free for the past few years and Paul Hegarty who’s the lead lecturer for Stanford CS193p class mentioned on the course site that the new updated lecture videos will be uploaded on iTunes in early November. I checked it today and true enough it’s now downloadable for free. The course is on going and currently it’s up to the 6th lecture.

I have followed previous semester’s Fall 2010 lecture videos by Paul Hegarty and I highly recommend budding iOS developers to check it out if you are not sure where and how to start. This semester’s Fall 2011 iPad and iPhone Application Development includes updated materials to teach you the latest stuff on iOS 5 and the updated Xcode 4.2 which is very different from XCode 3. So if you’re interested, just head on to iTunes U and download the latest videos. It’s available in both SD and HD version as well.

Alternative iPhone Home Button Fix With Assistive Touch

Alternative-iPhone-Home-Button-Fix-With-Assistive-Touch

This is the second time this has happened to me again. My iPhone home button is becoming unresponsive again. It’s probably one of the most common problems that I’ve heard off from iPhone users. Until we see a touch-sensitive button on future iPhones, this problem will continue to plague users after repeated usage. So what do you do in between the moments before getting it fixed. There is a hidden feature called Assistive Touch in iOS 5 meant for people with disabilities but it can also be a temporary workaround before you sent it for repairs. Here’s how you switch it on:-

Google Guide To Building Successful Mobile Apps

google-guide-to-building-successful-mobile-apps

Google released a very useful guide called the The Guide To The App Galaxy to teach mobile app developers on how to create successful money-making apps so that you can quit your job and make good money out of it. The cool site is built in HTML5 where you navigate a rocket as it covers 4 main topics and steps in mobile app development which applies to both iPhone, iPad and Android:-

  1. Promote
  2. Earn
  3. Measure
  4. Evaluate

It provides a whole bunch of useful tips but the one I found most valuable is the real case studies from apps like Angry Birds, Ant Smasher and The Weather Channel. It debunks the idea that paid apps make more money than free apps with ads. So check it out if you’re a mobile app developer.
