TouchType, no–not the way you type but the application by the same name, brings the landscape oriented keyboard to the iPhone’s Mail application. For those with chubby fingers who want to utilize the keyboard in landscape and need the extra space or for those who are talented enough to do two-thumbed action, then the $0.99 App Store application will be helpful.
I found this a couple of days ago on a site I frequent(pr0x.org), but haven’t had enough time to post about it. It’s currently in beta(a big beta, this is a gigantic project after all). A member named “Your Every Day Hacker” picked up the project from a couple of iPod Touch Fans members, and he decided to continue it. This project is a big nod to iphone developers on Windows, filling the HUGE space left by Apple. Here’s the quote posted on pr0x:
A new application is now available in Cydia called Backgrounder, which leaves applications running even after you hit the home button. Traditionally, the iPhone will terminate an application after the home button is depressed to return to the home screen. Backgrounder, as the name implies, lets applications run in the background allowing you to return to them in the future. This ability is great for applications such as MobileCase for downloading podcasts in the background while you surf Safari or check Mail, or for instant messaging applications to continue to run like BeeJive. The downside is that your battery life will be quickly depleted.

Some time ago I brought you the news that Skrew (danstaface) is working on porting his very popular app vWallpaper to firmware 2.*. I had the privilige to beta test the vwallpaper application and it’s almost ready to be released on a global level. What’s new is that Eric (Skrew) has also started to port his RingTones application to firmware 2.* !! Now this is something i’ve been waiting for! For now no release dates are available but keep tuning back to see the updates.
