Great Apps

For those that need help with Heart symbols. You need to install the Japanse keyboard.

Go to Settings, International, Keyboards, Japnese, and turn on both Qwerty and Kana.

Run Banner. Edit your Message. There should be a globe next to your space bar, click on globe till you see a Numpad pattern on your screen with Japanese characters in it. Once you see the Number pad display with Japanese characters in it, hit the "ABC" till you see actual numbers in the number pad. The number one should have 3 symbols below the number. To enter heart for example. hit number "1" twice, it should popup a menu, select the "Right Arrow," it should expand a menu where you can select a page of symbols such as an umbrella, heart, etc. Good luck.

My wish list, be able to turn my banner into screen saver so when my iphone is locked (auto lock in 5 mins) it would still display my banner. I can turn off auto lock in settings, but it will expose my data if somebody would walk away with my iphone.


Replace that tired LCD belt buckle...

...and get this app. for a fraction of the price, you can turn your $300 iPhone into a ghettofied LCD belt buckle. you know... the ones they sell at your local mall with all the other bling bling stuff. now you can scroll your phone number in the club for all those ladies you're going to pick up.

seriously though. this is a great little app. it would be really cool if you could somehow put a bunch of iPhones together to make a long marque but that's probably in the next version. i love this app!!! get it, you will find it useful for something, someday.. maybe. =)


Great Little App!

This Banner program does exactly what it says it does - allows you to make a banner that scrolls across your iPod and repeats as long as you want it to. The color and style can be changed, and there are plenty of characters to use to spruce up your banner.

I learned about this from a German friend during a recent business trip, but my wife saw it and she just had to have it. Its a lot of fun and a great conversation starter. Works well when you are trying to get attention of the waitress or waiter, too.

Also, at $0.99, it is a great value.
