TDF iPhone Apps
So, I want to be able to follow the TDF on my iPhone.
a quick search yielded two possibilities:
The first http://www.itourdefrance.com/info/ is not really an app, but is a website with pages for mobile phone browsers. it seems ok.
I also found this iPhone app, which seems to only be available through the Italian iPhone app store - although you apparently can select english as the language for the app.
it looks like it might be ok..., and i think it's free.
but, I can't figure out any way to get it. the first link says "It is available if you have i****io( http://repo.i****io.net) in your Installer.app sources. You will find it in Misc category."
does anyone know how to edit this installer.app.sources file?
edit: that's weird - it looks like the forum software is editing out a string it doesn't like from the URL
the missing letters (asterisks) are s p a z
It turns out that you have to jailbreak your iphone to get that app.
I thought it might be available in the Italian iPhone app store, but it isn't.
It's unfortunate that there isn't an "official" TDF app. For example, there is an official app for the Wimbledon tennis tournament, and it's pretty nice, with great high quality video, news, scores etc.
kind of a missed marketing opportunity.
I have been waiting for a pro cycling app to appear on the store's list. Sure would be nice.
