Since the 13th October 2009 any Telecom XT prepaid mobile customer that topped up would receive an additional bonus credit depending on how much you topped up. That bonus credit equated to around 33% of the top-up value and really made a difference to your balance, especially if you topped up with $60 and got $80. This has now ended (as of Feb 1st) and has been replaced with a new promotion called TOPUP & WIN. But is it any good? Read on.…Read More
The iPad App Store has recently undergone some changes allowing you to apply filters to searches. We didn’t post about those here at iPhonewzealand, but a lot of other tech blogs did. Last night, however, I discovered that with these changes has come another brand new feature for the iPad’s App Store: if you have previously bought an app but don’t currently have it installed on your device, the purchase button will now say ‘Install’ for that app, rather than its price. How is this helpful? Keep reading.…Read More
Mmmmm, pizza! There’s nothing quite like it to slay a raging hunger, and there’s nothing more convenient than ordering it from home and having it delivered to your door. Until now, trying to place such an order on an iPhone or iPad has been a frustrating experience due mainly to an unhealthy reliance on Adobe Flash. Pizza Hut’s website is built entirely on Flash and visiting it from an iPhone or iPad results in nothing but a blank screen – not even a courtesy ‘Sorry, we do not currently support your device’ message. Domino’s Pizza’s website does have an HTML version of their online ordering service, however it’s clunky and slow. Luckily the company have just launched their iPhone ordering app here in NZ, so if you’re hungry to learn more stick with me and we’ll take a look.…Read More

The cost for data, though, is a whopping $20 per MB. …Read More
So if you’ve got Chopper 2 on your iPhone, iPad, and or Mac then you’ll know by now how cool the game is. You’ll also know that you can control the game that’s installed on your iPad or Mac with your iPhone by using the built in ‘Remote’ option.
Well now you can get a stand alone app to contol the game from your iPhone or iPad on your Mac. This is great for two reasons. Firstly if you have bought it for your Mac don’t really fancy shelling out for another copy for your iOS device (cheapskate) then you can install the remote for free. Secondly you now don’t have to go through the game interface to control your chopper on your Mac or other device. You just fire up the wireless controller app and you are away.…Read More
Some of you have seen the cool wallpaper that both Steve and I use for our iPhones and we keep getting asked (both on the site and via email) where did we get it from and how can you get it. Well originally we got it from long time reader Camtab when he posted a comment with it in.
It came in blue and that was cool, but one day I decided I liked the wallpaper but was bored of the blue so fired up Photoshop and now I have a range of colours to choose from. Keep reading for the links to the wallpapers and a .zip with them all in.…Read More
