Want the functionality of an iPhone or iPod but don't want to pony up the cash? Well, your PSP can do whatever these other gadgets can do with ChrisTek and Epixx's iPSP v1.10. ChrisTek called our attention (thanks for the email!) to this program and we're glad that he did, because it is one of the most robust portals we've seen to date.
The iPSP is a portal designed to look and run like an Apple iPhone, and it contains several applications and games for your use. They've fixed some of the previous problems such as the out-of-memory issue that plagued the earlier release.
Personally, I think it's just cool that it has so much of this awesome homebrew in one package, and it's skinned to look streamlined like the iPhone.
Here's a short list of what you can expect from this program.
Click the picture for the full sized screenshot - Digg: The Digg application is an easy-route to get to the social-news website, Digg. It's a great site, and I recommend going to it on your PC as well, by going to Digg / News.
- Photos: The Photos application displays up to ten photos that you choose, at 5-second intervals.
- Calculator: The Calculator application is just that. A calculator.
- Lock: The Lock application is more for eye candy. It's basically a manually-activated screensaver, and is great if you want to show off your sexy PSP's screen. Just try it. You'll think it looks cool too.
- Weather: The Weather application provides easy access to your local weather. It requires a wireless internet connection. Simply input your zip code and, thanks to Weather Underground, your local weather is displayed.
- iPod: The iPod application allows you to listen to music via PSPTunes. iPSP includes PSPTunes installation files if you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t already have it installed.
- Browser: The EXPEDITION browser is your link to the web, while using iPSP. It has multiple tabs, and all the things you would expect a browser to have. The icon that looks like a book is for your own links, which are read from the PSPÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s favorites menu.
- Games: The Games application is very simple, and is your access-way to the Flash games that come with iPSP. Simply choose a game to play it.
- About: The About application gives you legal and creation info about iPSP, as well as your current iPSP version.
- Messengers: The Messengers application is your gateway to the mobile messengers provided by eBuddy. They are: AIM, MSN, and Yahoo!
- Mail: The Mail application is your gateway to the most popular mobile mail providers. The providers are:Yahoo Mail, GMAIL, AOL Mail, and Windows Live mail.
- Vipr: The Vipr application is your gateway to the Vipr Online Media Service. At the time of iPSP's release, Vipr is still in production, so check back frequently for more updates on it's status.
If you plan on downloading it, there's an easy install file in an executable format and a zipped version for manual installation. As with all other homebrew, read the extensive manual that is provided with the program (in both PDF and txt format) to avoid any possible problems with your PSP. Kudos to bigbondfan for his awesome and professional work on this program.
