Part Most of Instagram's well-known popularity and success came directly from its easy-to-use interface that can make just about any picture enticing without the user having to work up even a drop of sweat. With the app exposing the huge market for such social networks, tons of developers are having a go at gaining the title of the "Instagram of video." YouTube, in conjunction with its parent company, Google, today released a new application that makes it easy for users to record and upload their videos to YouTube - undoubtedly another competitor taking a shot at the aforementioned title.
If you've ever misplaced your iOS device before, whether it be a simple instance where you've forgotten where you last put it in your house or a large scale situation where it's been stolen, you've experienced the burning sensation of worry. Thankfully, software like Apple's own Find My iPhone service aids users in discovering the location of their lost iOS devices. This service has now further expanded by the recent addition of support for driving directions to the last-known location of the device.
In a move that could have very well been avoided had Apple originally integrated a Micro USB port into its iOS devices starting first with the introduction of the iPhone 5 back in September, the Cupertino-based technology giant has added a new adapter to its wide inventory. As hinted above, the adapter sports a Lightning port on one side and a Micro USB port on the other to allow support for any accessories with a Micro USB connection.
The Angry Birds franchise, with its simple gameplay mechanics, has been an absolute success throughout its past few years of existence. Let's face it, though: Rovio, the developer behind the series, probably took the whole concept a little too far, and the franchise has faced its demise for some angry gamers. Each of the new titles that are simply re-skinned and then re-released just aren't cutting it. To prolong its overall dominance in the App Store, Rovio will soon be launching a new game that they hope will similarly turn into a worldwide phenomenon. This time, however, gamers will play in the point of view of the pigs, who were previously the antagonists of the Angry Birds series.
Count on Apple's wondrous marketing team to throw together a catchy television advertisement following the introduction of a new Apple device. Today's TV debut, focusing on the whole lineup of updated iPods that were announced earlier today, puts some groove into the usual Apple formula. All we can say about it? It's been "engineered for maximum funness."
The newly released Launch Center Pro ($2.99) isn't a free update for owners of its unripe predecessor, and that did spark some ill-natured disapproval towards the respective developer. Regardless, that's no reason to simply brush the app off and not give it a go. The completely revamped, reimagined app ditches the previously-used list format and instead replaces it with a slick, more powerful interface geared towards optimal efficiency.
The most obvious solution to users who clumsily press random keys on the keyboard due to thick fingers is a capacitive stylus. The problem is, there are hundreds and hundreds of said accessories geared towards such users and choosing the right one can be difficult. You have to factor in the product's responsiveness, size, feel and more.
Up until now, blogging on the go wasn't too user-friendly using the popular platform, Wordpress. The lackluster app, the horrible mobile solution to navigating around WP-admin, and the inability to efficiently upload a picture all coalesced to make the whole blogging experience a terrible, non-ideal one. Thankfully, if you're into blogging while on the go, you'll be pleasantly excited to learn that you'll soon be able to upload media to Wordpress from your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad kudos to Apple's upcoming iOS 6 firmware upgrade.
There are tons of things that Apple could learn from Apple - both minute details of iOS that could be tweaked to be more beneficiary and also huge changes that could be pushed by the Cupertino-based company. While it's not anything iOS is desperately in need of, RapidLinks is a handy jailbreak tweak.
Judging by the App Store's record, I wouldn't completely endorse developers trying out new, exotic controls schemes for their games in the likes of success - people [usually] won't like change. However, in the case of CM Games' newest release, Slingshot Racing ($0.99), they've mastered a new control scheme and have applied it to the racing genre in the form of an irresistible, universal package.
