iPhone 6 running on iOS 9.2.1 shows reducing storage

iPhone
In the past week or so more and more iPhone owners have been experiencing the same problem: So my 5 month old iPhone 6, 16gb, updated to ios 9.2.1 recently showed random filling up of storage space. No new apps or photos or music of any kind is being added and yet the storage space keeps on decreasing randomly over time. When I connect to iTunes, the storage bar at the bottom of the screen shows a huge purple bar that's taking up a lot of space, labelled "DOCUMENTS AND DATA". Now, is this a new deal? 'Cause I don't recall seeing such high amount of space being occupied by this purple thing before yesterday. What the heck is up?! People try everything including backing up and then restored the phone with…

Trapster – Speed Trap Sharing

Trapster – Speed Trap Sharing

iPhone, Technology
What is Trapster? Simply put, Trapster is an application for getting speed trap alerts on your Blackberry, iPhone, Nokia, Android, Garmin, or TomTom device. How does Trapster work? When you see a trap, report it by pressing a button on your phone, or calling a toll free number. Other user's phones will alert them as they approach the trap.

Apple iPhone or HTC Hero Sense UI?

iPhone, Technology, Uncategorized
My new iPhone theme - looks just like the HTC Hero Sense UI - except that it's an Apple iPhone! We know that HTC Magic owners out there are pretty psyched at the news that the HTC Sense UI is available for their Android phone.
