Widgets for iOS 5 Notification Center Are Coming Via Jailbreak




Will Homer has developed the first 'Hello World' widget for the iOS Notification Center.

There are still some bugs to be worked out; however, Homer says its pretty simple for developers.

Its pretty easy to understand, you create a class that implements the BBWeeAppController protocol. The only required function you must have is '- (UIView *)view' in which you must return the view that you want to appear. There are also other methods in the protocol for launching URLs when tapped and for rotation detection, view height, etc.

A GitHub project has been created for the sample widget. Developers can start working on their own widget thanks to the jailbreak released earlier today.

iTunes 10.5 is 64-Bit in Lion, iPhoto 9.2 isn’t…yet




For those wondering when Apple’s in-house apps will go 64-bit, we have some good news and some bad news. In Lion, the developer release of iTunes 10.5 is 64-Bit (finally). The developer version of iPhoto with Photostreaming to the iCloud however, is still 32-Bit, at least currently.

More news on the Verizon iPad 2 recall




We’ve been getting a steady stream of news since we broke the Verizon iPad 2 recall news late last night. We initially postulated that the recall may have been due to FedEx glitches or issues with engraving since most of the people in the discussions had both of those in common. However, we’re now hearing that Apple Store employees are also being told to scan iPad 2s and if they are a certain serial number allotment, to send them back to Apple.

Apple has given all the stores a list of serial numbers to scan, if it’s a match we were told to set aside and ship back to Apple, these are only for Verizon ipads. This was to be done on Monday and continue to scan all shipments thru June 11. I had over one hundred to send back.
Why is Apple pulling these? We aren’t sure but we’re hearing this:

Verizon iPad 2s aren\’t being sent back due to engraving. If someone activates a cellular connection on the device, then wants to view or edit account information, they can’t. They receive a message that it is activated, and that\’s it. I saw someone open at least 6 looking for one that didn\’t do it. It\’s device specific, not software.
Again, please send any further information on this to TipsForLimerain.com@gmail.com – especially specific serial numbers of affected iPad 2s..
