Apple Updates MobileMe iDisk and Find My iPhone

by Marianne Schultz

Apple has pushed out some app updates, bringing bug fixes to its iDisk app and adding compatibility with the newest iPod touch to Find My iPhone. The iDisk app, which first debuted in July 2009, was fixed to address the inability to open some files in their corresponding iPad apps, e.g., Pages, and now properly shows rotated images in their correct orientation.

Find My iPhone, which was released just a few months ago in June, now works with the latest generation of the iPod touch that was announced at last week’s press event. Find My iPhone is a feature of Apple’s MobileMe subscription service that costs $99 per year (though it can often be found for less through Amazon and even eBay) and provides¬†push email and over-the-air synchronization of contact and calendar data between multiple devices.The¬†Find My iPhone feature helps users locate lost or stolen iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads by displaying the device’s location on a map and allowing users to display a message on the screen or forcing the device to play a sound.

The Find My iPhone app’s description lists the following changes in version 1.0.1:

  • Support for the new iPod touch
  • Translation fixes for French, German, and Japanese languages
  • Various bug fixes
