Congrats to Comic Zeal!

Comic Zeal by Bitolithic made it into the "What's Hot" listing on the front page of iTunes! With 80,000 apps and Good Reader being listed last week as "What's Hot"... Does this pattern suggest something about the value of adding USB transfer into an app?

Congrats to GoodiWare

Good Reader has now been listed as "What's Hot" in the iTunes App Store's front page. Additionally, the app has climbed to #1 in productivity and it is in the top #50 and climbing overall. It must be the new icon ;-)

iPhone Explorer App Integration Pages

With the release of the updated version of iPhone Explorer comes the creation of our new app integration pages. While there are currently 8 apps listed, more are coming and some of the apps themselves still require updating on behalf of the iPhone App developers before they can fully take advantage of the USB support. It takes about 2 weeks before updates are approved for apps in the App store, so for some of these apps it may be 2-3 weeks before they are fully USB compatible. To use USB syncing with an app in iPhone Explorer, go the the "Change Root" menu, then select "Edit" next to a custom root that you want to change.

iPhone Explorer PC, Mac and Website updates

The iPhone Explorer updates which introduce app "syncing" are finally here for both Mac and PC. The version number issue (discussed in the last two posts) has finally been resolved, so this time the Windows progam when downloaded will be the updated version. If you use "Black Rain" to jailbreak your iPhones with 3.1 firmware - please be patient. Apparently you do will not yet have "real root" access in iPhone Explorer with this update. We hope to have this resolved soon. The site and logos have also been 100% redesigned. Please send feedback to
