Iphone 5: Switch Lock Rotation And Mute

If you’ve used an iPad before you might be font on changing the switch on the side of the device from it’s default of “Mute” to the function of “Lock Rotation” which is pretty nifty: On the iPhone you won’t find the option in the usual place under the Settings -> General menu. Unfortunately the option doesn’t exist at all, as of iOS 6.0.1 The only way to lock and unlock rotation is by double tapping the home button so the list of applications comes up at the bottom, then sliding it to the “right” to expose an area at the left that has quick adjustment for sound and also the “Lock Rotation” option. In order to swap the switch you’ll need to JailBreak your phone and install something like Cydia that will allow you to change things like this. Why Does Apple Prevent You from changing this in the First Place? Most of the time the phone is going to be in portrait mode anyway – think about applications like mail and messaging With the volume buttons you can’t turn the sound all the way off (accidentally) so you need the extra switch to make it go to “mute”

WPtouch iPhone Theme

“With a single click, WPtouch transforms your WordPress blog into an iPhone application-style theme, complete with ajax loading articles and effects, when viewed from an iPhone, iPod touch, Android or BlackBerry touch mobile device.” Basically, this plugin will take your WordPress 2.7+ blog and check the HTTP headers to find out if the user’s browser is a mobile phone or iPhone, etc. Then, instead of serving up your normal theme, s/he is given a cool iPhone style interface to navigate your blog. It’s really quite cool and it takes care of some issues regarding small screen size browsing. It didn’t disable some of my plugins, however, which use javascript, (for example, the snow falling script) which seem to give the iPhone’s processor  a little bit of trouble (lots of math for that script). Over, I like it.
