The Cupertino-based company that we all love, is offering free shipping on everything on their online store in light of the holidays as well as, indirectly, their wonderful sales numbers this past Black Friday.
Black Friday is the only day of the year when Apple offers discounted products storewide – some in black, others in white, many in silver. The tradition continues for November 25, 2011. No need to get aimlessly lost in long lines of deal-crazed buyers hell-bent on receiving products at the
While browsing through the app store on my device, I came across iTunes’ new list which presented me with a very pleasant surprise. The only bad thing is I’m going to need an iTunes giftcard very very soon! So, this new list is basically a compilation of tons of popular
Google recently announced their latest foray into the world of social networking, Google Buzz. They now have a fully-functional web application tailored to Mobile Safari on the iPhone or iPod touch. The web app has all the features of the full web version, but scaled down enough to fit on the iPhone's screen. You can check it out by going to the Google Mobile website.
In December of last year, Riverturn launched Black Swan, a web version of VoiceCentral, their since-banned native Google Voice application. It was the first app of any kind to bring Google Voice back to the iPhone through legitimate means after Apple removed all traces of Google Voice functionality from the App Store. Now Google is following suit, offering their own official Google Voice web app for the iPhone.
Earlier this summer, Apple turned a lot of heads (including the FCC's) when they unabashedly killed Google Voice on the iPhone, rejecting Google's official app and removing all third party ones. Now an alternative has shown up that Apple can't reject; a web app. Riverturn, the developers of the removed app VoiceCentral, has created their own web interface to the service that acts exactly the same as a native app. Video after the break!
The Gmail team at Google announced recently that they have updated the mobile-optomized version of Gmail that shows up on smartphones like the iPhone to be between 2 and 3 times faster than the previous version. The speed increase is the result of several optimizations implemented to boost performance of Gmail's mobile site.
Twitter has announced a new mobile interface for accessing the Twitter website on the iPhone and other similarly large-screened smartphones. The new interface sports a look closer to that of Twitter on the PC. The developer team rebuilt the mobile site from scratch using Twitter's API's, and includes Reply, Retweet, and Favorite functions, as well as views for Mentions and Direct Messages. They're still working out some of the issues showing up on Blackberries, but they hope to replace m.Twitter.com with the new code soon.
Google announced recently that the Google home page will now be location-aware when accessed on an iPhone. Now, whenever you go to Google.com on your iPhone, Google will tap in to the device's GPS capabilities to determine your location and give you location-relevent results. The ability to search with My Location has also been added to the Google Mobile App [$0.00 | App Store].
Glyphboard, a small web app that's seemingly more than a web app, just might change the way web apps are looked at. Previously web apps could only be used while in Safari and connected to the Internet, but this application is much different. That's because Glyphboard can install itself as a webclip on your iPhone or iPod touch and launch just like a native application.
