    I get a weird error when I try to download earthscape:

    "This item is being modified. Please try again later."

    Anyone else getting this?

    I just got it to work from the mobile app store. Odd that it doesn't seem to work from iTunes...

    Earthscape doesn't seem to be working very well for me. It wont load the maps at any resolution higher then the basic one, so everything is just a blurry mess. I'm on a wifi connection too so i don't get what the problem is. I tried a restart as well. Anyone else have this problem?

    I had the same problem even on my wifi connection. I read their support page, which suggested rebooting the iPhone. This worked for me, and cleared the images right up. Still a little slow loading though, and honestly, I am less than impressed with the app. It is slightly fun, and has some cool features like photos, wikipedia references, but that's really all it has, and I guess I got bored of it too quickly. Hey, no complaints though the price was right. After trying it for free, I can decisively coclude that I would not have paid $9.99 or even $4.99 for this particular app. That is my personal preference, though, because it is still a very well done app I suppose.

    It started working correctly on the 2nd restart. Strange.

    It did end up not being as cool as i thought it would be, so i'm glad i was able to try it for free. The fact that you can't manually look up a location seems like a major flaw, and the 3D view is kind of unimpressive unless your looking at an extremely mountainous area.

    Air Sharing looks cool and is free for "two weeks." I don't know when that ends. After that it'll be $6.99

    i think in a few more days it will end, Sept 8th + 14 free days is Sept 22nd

    Good Find,

    Its a powerful app, I use it for school to view all the teachers lectures, pdf's and powerpoints

    and as for Earthscape, I only used it that one time, it loaded okay, googlemaps loads a lot faster and does almost the same thing...still its not bad for being free right now

    Sketches is going on sale

    Sketches 1.3 is out, and to celebrate they're reducing the price from $5.99 to $1.99 from the 27th to Oct. 4th.

    For anyone who doesn't know the app, it's really good for, well, sketching little ideas & scribbles, but also for taking screenshots (Safari, maps, your photos) and writing over them - pretty useful for emailing to people. http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=283292597&mt=8

    Deal for iPod Touch users in Canada (or Toronto, at least)

    For anyone using an iPod Touch in Canada (well, in Toronto for sure, but I think this is going on across the country): Chapters/Indigo (fyi: a large Canadian book store) is selling off all previous-generation iPod accessories at great discounts (like 75% off!).

    However, among the "accessories" are iPod AppleCare Protection Plans (viz., extended warranties). Normally they sell for about $70, but they are marked down to 75% off. I checked with Apple, and have actually purchased one and successfully registered it with my Touch, and it works fine. A second year of coverage for about $18! Just remember that you can only register your device if it's less than one year old; after that you're SOL.

    (Fyi: you can use the online store lookup to find them: http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/ipod/AppleCare-Protection-Plan-iPod-Enrollment/718908609095-item.html - they list 4 @ Yorkdale, 6 @ Runnymede, etc. as of 9/25)

    All Bootant titles $0.99

    I think this just came up today (at least it's new for BiiBall 3D). Says "for a limited time", so not sure when it ends. Some of the titles are really good (e.g., BlocksTouch 3D) and are a no-brainer at one buck!

    The developer of Flipbook, Josh Anon writes to let us know that the price will be reduced -- exceptionally today only.

    I wanted to let you know that in celebration of having over 1,000 movies posted
    to flipbook.tv and 400,000 downloads of FlipBook Lite, we are going to have a
    half-off sale for FlipBook (normally $9.99, on sale for $4.99) on Friday,
    September 26. We will mark it at the reduced price right at midnight PST and
    restore it to its normal price Friday evening (of course it might take iTunes
    some time to update the price). Furthermore, through October 1, when you
    upload a movie to flipbook.tv, you get a coupon for 25% or 15% off a Pogo
    Stylus depending on if you use FlipBook or FlipBook Lite, respectively.
