How To Make Your iPhone Ringer Louder

Perhaps one of the most aggravating aspects of having a cell phone is when you miss a telephone call. There are many reasons why you can miss a phone call, however, when you miss a very important call due to your ringer’s low volume, this is extremely aggravating. If you own an iPhone, than you may have missed many phone calls due to the low ringer volume, which is very surprising. When you have a cell phone as high-tech as the iPhone, than you expect it to be able to properly notify you when you have a phone call, however, due to the iPhone’s lower than normal ringer volume many people are missing phone calls. But what can you do about the iPhone’s low ringer volume?

Many people who have an iPhone think that the reason why the ringer volume is so low is because of the iPhone’s small speakers. And this makes sense because the smaller the speakers are, the lower the volume, right? While this may seem to be a great reason why the iPhone’s volume is so low, it may not be the actual cause. The main cause for a ringer volume that is extremely low may be due to the actual audio levels in your phone. Many people have found that with their iPhone, the stock ringers have such a low volume. In order to fix this, you may have to find new ringtones other than those that are already on your iPhone.

The main cause for the ringtones being so quite is the fact that they are made of a low frequency. Thus, if you want to be able to have a louder ringtone, than you will need to find a ringtone that is made of a higher frequency. This may sound difficult, but you can find a higher frequency ringtone by simply turning to your computer. If you are a MAC owner, than you will be able to go into the application Garage Band and find a new ringtone within this location. Perhaps the best ringtone from Garage Band is the “Cell Phone Ringing” sound clip.

However, putting a new ringtone onto your iPhone requires a little work on your part. In order to put this clip onto your iPhone, than you will need to run iFunstastic, which is for individuals that have an Intel-MAC, or if you are using a Windows PC than you will want to run the application iPhone RingTone Maker by Cucusoft (the best on the market). These applications will install the ringtones from your computer to your iPhone, thus giving you the ability to have a ringtone that is clearly audible.

The key to having a successful ringtone is picking one that is naturally loud by default. This will increase the sound volume that is being release, and thus you will never miss another phone call because you didn’t hear it. When you have an iPhone, you want to enjoy every aspect of it, however, if the volume of the iPhone is lower than desired, than you will not be able to enjoy your iPhone to its fullest.

RobertV –“Awesome. I can’t believe how good this looks. I get to watch almost the entire season of my beloved Bulls for forty bucks! This rules for me because I don’t live in Chicago any more and there’s no blackout for the displaced fan. I’ve watched only 1 game so far but love this app already

C1KK – “Amazing value at only $39.99, works great over wifi and even 3G, would be nice if there was an audio only option, but even without it it’s still the best app I’ve purchased

Shunter94 – “The ability to watch practically every game live makes this app worth the $40 price tag. Add to that the replays, highlight reels and schedules and you get a very nice app. The only thing preventing a 5-star rating is the local blackouts. The app would be even more valuable If you were able to watch absolutely every game.

Best iPhone Applications for College Students

As a college student, you need to have several things in order to keep your sanity.  For one, you have to have a good study schedule, next you need to be able to communicate with your friends and family, which is why so many students have the iPhone.  However, one of the most important aspects about having an iPhone and being a college student, is the fact that you can apply certain applications that will help you both in your academic life, as well as in your social life.  With the iPhone consistently coming out with new applications, you are able to find some that are entertainment and helpful.

Perhaps one of the coolest applications for a college student who always wants to have a good time is the iBartender iPhone application.  This amazing application allows you to find and make over 40,000 various alcoholic drinks.  However, what really makes this application so unique is the fact that it allows you to choose your drinks based on what you want to put in them.  Have you ever been with friends, and someone says they want to drink Tequila, but they don’t know how to make very many different types of drinks with it.

Well, with the iBartender application, you can choose Tequila, and then you are able to choose what you want to mix it with and an entire list of various drinks featuring the two ingredients you want pop up on your screen.  This is perfect for holiday party ideas, spur-of-the-moment get together with friends, or just a great companion when you go bar hopping.  You will never have to wonder what you’re going to drink that night.

Another great application is a far cry from the above one; however, it serves an equally important role in the life of a college student.  Whether you are majoring in physical science or criminal justice, you will have to take math courses.  And if you are like most people, than you have to have a calculator when you enter these dreaded classes.  However, instead of having to carry your iPhone and a huge calculator, you are able to carry just your iPhone when it has the SCI-15C installed.  This scientific and programming calculator will give you access to many different types of equations.  Whether you need this calculator for Algebra, Trigonometric functions or even with standard math problems, this application can handle anything mathematical you throw at it. This amazing app is based on the world-renowned HP 15C RPN high-end scientific programmable calculator.

Which is what makes this application perfect for a wide variety of college students, because it doesn’t matter if you are working on a hexadecimal problem, or you can’t remember what the square root of 164 is, you are able to use this calculator with ease and precision.  Also, the main reason why so many people love this application is because it eliminates the need for a bulky scientific calculator, in most cases, and it allows you to carry only your iPhone.  When you’re in college, you have enough to worry about, so why not let your iPhone SCI-15C take care of the math for you?

How the iPhone is Advancing Health Care

Memorial Hermann Healthcare System has the busiest trauma center in the country, which depends on the latest technology to streamline its services. With thousands of doctors, nurses, and administrators, how do they all deliver better patient care?

You guessed it, with their iPhone!!!

Since the iPhone has built in support for Microsoft Exchange, it works perfectly with Memorial Hermann’s technological infrastructure. With the ability to remotely wipe and put passcode protection on the iPhone, keeps patients’ records secure and confidential.

In an interview with David Bradshaw, Memorial Hermann’s Chief Information, Planning and Marketing Officer, he states that “Health care is a real-time business. We need anywhere, anytime computing, and the iPhone is the best platform for the applications we’re choosing.”

With Outlook on the iPhone, accepting meetings, looking at email and attachments, downloading spreadsheets is all integrated, like having the client on the iPhone.

With hundreds of medical apps accessible, the iPhone becomes a pocket reference for everything from diagnostic tools to anatomical charts. This also allows clinicians the freedom to create their own workflow applications to streamline their day.

One of the most popular medical apps is AirStrip OB, which enables obstetricians to monitor the different stages of labor even when they’re not patient-side. Doctors can get real time data at the touch of a button with the iPhone. Like many other medical apps, Airstrip OB has a secure connection to a HIPAA compliant authentication, which many mobile devices can’t offer.

With secure remote access to patients and other clinical data, the iPhone is making its way in hospitals as a must have device. If you are in the medical field, and own an iPhone, you should see what apps are available.

Here are a few:

Lexi-Complete: Detailed information on drugs, drug interactions, diagnosis, disease management, patient education, and more.

The Bantam Medical Dictionary: Fifth edition of the Bantam Medical Dictionary

The Muscle System Pro: basic to advanced levels of muscles and muscle groups

iPhone Camera Causes Security Concern

With more and more businesses switching over to the iPhone, it is becoming a security risk for some organizations. Many government institutions and top level agencies will not allow cameras in their facilities due to security concerns.  Since the iPhone has the built in camera, many employees and visitors to the facilities can not take their iPhone with them. If you don’t leave it in your car, you have to leave it at the security counter.

There have been some reports where people have left with the wrong iPhone. How’s that for a security concern…

If you want to use your iPhone in one of these institutions, you need to have your camera removed. To remove your camera is a difficult process, no matter what they may tell you on, and you can and probably will ruin your iPhone.  There are few and far companies that specialize in such removals. You can check your local classified ads for some John Doe who removes the camera in his apartment, but I wouldn’t trust that.

At iPhone Download World, we have found and recommend Mission Repair for iPhone camera removal. All of their Technicians are Apple Certified and will remove the camera, and reassemble the iPhone within 24 hours. They will also pack and send you your iPhone camera back to you with your camera-less iPhone.

The iPhone camera removal costs $69.00 plus shipping, which will vary depending on how you want it shipped. This is a real deal to have your iPhone camera removed by certified techs.

FancyStacker – Reviewed

Another Topple this is not. The closest I think it comes to is Stacked. The BIG difference though is that while you are given an ordered set of shapes to drop and balance, the order in which they appear is not necessarily the proper way to complete the level. For instance in one of the earlier levels you get a triangle and then a long plank. But the only way to get them to balance is to get the long plank UNDER the triangle – so you have to drop the triangle from high on the screen, get the plank and quickly drop that one so that the triangle lands on it – reversing the order.

Then there is a level with balls rolling down a ramp and a spinny thing at the end. Now to prevent the little balls from falling down you need to get one of the last shapes offered on the spinny thing before all the little balls. So as you can see the game takes quite a bit more planning and manipulation than the other stacking type games.

Graphics: 3/5; Sounds: 5/5
The graphics are of the line drawing that have become popular of late. I am not sure why some of the check marks are sideways or even tilted or bent. In fact though I know WHY there are exclamation points that turn to check marks I am not sure that is needed. It actually makes me a bit nervous that I did the wrong thing and its warning me that I dropped the block in the wrong place! The colors are a bit muted and sometimes makes the objects look a little blurry (maybe just my eyes though). The music (new in this release) is soothing and suits a game of this nature.

Gameplay: 4/5
There are walkthroughs of the first ten levels which can be considered a help guide. It shows that sometimes the order of the shapes are not the ideal order to solving the puzzle. All in all, the difficulty ramps up rather quickly in the 40 levels. That’s not such a bad thing for a game with only 40 levels though. It will detract those that are more comfortable with the easier difficulties. Not quite sure that someone who knows their ability on this kind of game lies in the easy to medium range would want to take a chance on a game with only 40 levels knowing they might only get through half or less. I would rather see more levels spread across the difficulties.

Controls: 5/5
Controlling the pieces is all done by touch and I found them to be very precise and tight. That is a big plus since you rely so much on precision and timing in this game.

Overall: 4/5
When all is said and done, this is an excellent physics stacker that is quite unlike the other stackers on the market. This one involves timing and precision and thinking ahead with the pieces you have available. With some fine tuning on the graphics (the clarity and the exclamation points) this will be an excellent alternative. Adding some easier and mid-level difficulties will also open this up to the more casual gamer who likes to just drop and stack – but with the timing twist.

Great job at creating this Phoenix Reanimation and wonderful to see you involved in the fine tuning of this game.

WordPress for the iPhone

Some of you blog owners may have tried or are considering the wordpress app for your iPhone. It is a very basic blogging app that allows you to add posts, pages, and approve comments from anywhere. This can be very convenient for bloggers on the go, but the spelling handycapped blogger will really miss the spell check function.

The one feature I like best is the ability to approve comments where ever you are. I will get an email about new comments and now all I have to do is log on to the app to approve.

Unless you are really proficient with typing on the iPhone, I wouldn’t suggest this app for any long posts.

On the topic of blogging, if you own a blog you should check out Bloggers Payback Pro
