UGA Football Schedule

iPhone applications and vacation.  Funny how they can end up coming together.  Another app I’ve been working on is a little football schedule for the UGA Bulldogs, which if you’ve been reading this site for awhile you’ll know is my team of choice.  So here are some screenshots for the app, which should be up on the App Store once I get all the details worked out.

Managing iPhone en masse

KACE, makers of the KBOX family of appliances can now provide centralized management of the iPhone.  Their appliances can provision, configure and control policies on end-point devices: http://www.kace.com/about/releases/systems-management-appliance/computer-management-software-alternative/08_25_08.php There is still a big component missing from third party solutions for the iPhone (or a built-in option for that matter), which is the development of a full disk encryption solution for the platform.  There are a couple of solutions in development which we are beta testing but nothing that is ready for prime time yet (can you say multiple bricked iPhone’s is bad for business).

LoanShark iPhone App

OK, I know this doesn’t really sound like something you’ll need in the field.  Well, it isn’t.  Unless of course you’re in the field in between looking at houses, which I am these days.  So what does this little bugger do?  Well, it can figure up payment, interest, amortization, track progress of mortgages, car loans, credit cards, etc. http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=286069264&mt=8

iPhone in the Enterprise

The iPhone is a great phone.  It’s also a great web browser and has a seemingly limitless graphical development platform.  If you use POP or IMAP the iPhone is also a great messaging tool.   But… The iPhone needs to integrate with Exchange and/or Lotus Notes seamlessly.  The iPhone lso needs tools that allow managing the devices en masse.
