At first it was called vlc4iphone, now it’s called ZodPlay, and at some point in the not too distant future it will once again be called vlc4phone (naming history details can be found here). Regardless of its name, it can play .ogg and .flac files – something which a number of us have been hoping against hope would happen some day. …
Update: this is actually a rather ‘large’ update – may more decoders are now supported, including XviD, h264, MPEG4, FLAC, 3GP, MP3, MPEG2, AVI, and more! In addition, volume control was added, and the warning when no media is found was fixed. Updated screenshots soon.
vlc4iphone is in beta, which means the usual caveats apply (limited functionality and not above crashing). Currently, it plays mpeg/mpg, avi and mp3 files. And by avi they do not mean divx or xvid, though both are being researched as an added format (along with flac, ogg, vcd, wma and wmv).
Right now, vlc4iphone is only available to ZodTTD.com Beta Testers, though as more decoders get implemented and some bugs fixed up, a public release will be made.

Alright I admit it, I’ve drank the Twitter kool-aid. For a while I was in the “I don’t care what you’re doing right now” camp, but have since discovered that it really is a great way to keep up on current events, find interesting people and keep in touch. And like a number of geeks, I carry several mobile Internet devices at all times. So I gave as many mobile Twitter clients/services a try, and here’s what I’ve found.
Note: you can always follow @simplehelpblog on twitter. I’d be happy to answer questions or offer suggestions!

While typing using the Notes application on your iPhone (or jailbroken iPod Touch) sometimes you want to go back and change or correct something. But it can be tricky to ‘tap’ exactly where you want the cursor to go. Here’s a neat trick I just discovered today – tap in the general area you want to put the cursor, and hold your finger down. A magnified view will appear, and you can “drag” the cursor exactly where you want it.
Update: as reader Philip points out, this actually works in all iPhone/iPod Touch apps (other than some 3rd party programs like Term-vt100).
