At times, some of the lockdowns on iOS can be quite frustrating. It can’t for example send email programmatically which presumably is to prevent spamming. The conversion I’m doing (from Windows Phone) has a requirement to log all functionality and occasionally email these logs.  Yes you can do it on Windows Phone!

Fortunately iOS does allow applications to access the web, so with a few lines of PHP script running on a domain I own (and host), I can have the logs sent via a URL POST which includes some magic values added so that the script can’t be easily abused by spammers. In any case the email is sent to one specific address.
