iPhone App for TicketPros

Jun 27

I have just finished building a WebApp for the iPhone for TicketPros.

The app allows you to browse all events with details and pricing directly on your iPhone.  Since it is a WebApp you can view and install it directly from the TicketPros mobile site.




Improve iPhone voice control

Jun 27

The iPhone now comes with pretty decent voice control, but unfortunately if you are a South African and most of the names you are dialing sounds more Dutch than English, it struggles a bit to recognise the names correctly. As an example, my wife’s name is “Mariette van Niekerk” so the voice control finds Marie, Marion etc., but never Mariette.

So here is a small, quick tip for you.

If you add nicknames to your contacts, you can use the nicknames with voice control for voice dialing. For the example above I added the nickname “Wife” to Mariette’s name in my contacts.  So now I can call her by simply saying “Call wife”.

Not unto the swift…

The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.
— Ecclesiates 9:11 (NIV)
