Only 2 days after the release of Fring, there is already a hack available that allows you to make free calls via the 3G network. Fring has been allowed to the App Store under condition that you can just use it to make phone calls via WiFi networks. But on the Fring forum you can already find the instructions on how to perform the hack.

The web administrator from the website geocaching.com submitted the first geocaching application for the iPhone to Apple. Depending on how quickly they get aroundÂ to reviewing the application, we should see it in the App Store withinÂ two weeks. The cost of the application is $9.99 and has the functionality you need to look up and seek out caches using the networking and location-based features of the iPhone 3G. It also works with the iPod Touch and First Generation iPhone, though you will need WiFi for the Touch, and the compass won’t work on the first generation iPhone (naturally).

This is a cool game I picked up from the App Store. It’s a turn-based strategy game, reminiscent ofÂ Advanced Wars and Fire Emblem.
The game starts out with you as a squire. You lead your army through a series of missions, trying to conquer the areas using your army. Every mission you win provides you with new units and artifacts which can be spent to upgrade your army.
Each area has three missions, and three raids. Once you beat all three missions, that particular area is conquered. You earn the ability to play the raids after you have beaten the corresponding mission. So when you beat Mission 1 of an area you unlock Raid 1. Each raid provides you with another scenario in which to fight. The benefit of raids are that once you beat them, you gain a certain number of artifacts which are listed on the raid’s page.
