The simplest way to improve your iPhone’s battery performance by 15%

It can’t be said enough: Uninstalling the Facebook app does some wonderful things for your phone. Last week we pointed to some tests that showed uninstalling Facebook from your Android phone could improve its battery life by as much as 20% and now there are new tests that show you can get a similar battery boost by uninstalling the app from your iPhone. Specifically, The Guardian’s Samuel Gibbs has found that “uninstalling Facebook’s iOS app and switching to Safari can save up to 15% of iPhone battery life.” More →

Another crucial reason why app developers prefer iOS to Android

Another crucial reason why app developers prefer iOS to Android

While the fight between iPhone and Android persists, the fact is that no matter what platform you choose, you’ll get a great experience. There’s great hardware on either side and amazing apps to complement them. Sure, iPhone has definitive advantages over Android, but, in turn, Android outshines iPhone in some ways.

However, there’s still one key area where iPhone always wins that Google has not managed to address. More →

List of most popular iOS and Android apps is dominated by Facebook and Google

Whether you’re an iPhone user or partial to Android, one thing smartphone users across the board can enjoy equally is an absolutely endless selection of apps. Today, both the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store each house more than 1.5 million applications. Even better, the days of top applications being exclusive to one platform or the other appear to be winding down.

That said, if we look at a list of the most popular apps, it quickly becomes apparent that the mobile app experience is still dominated by big time players.

Best Email Apps For iPhone

The only 5 email apps iPhone users should consider using

The only 5 email apps iPhone users should consider using

There are a few cases where a pre-installed iPhone app made by Apple is the best tool for a particular job, but the Mail app certainly isn’t one of them. For light email users, it’s a nice clean option that offers a fairly basic set of features and a nice user interface. For the rest of us, we need a solution that offers a broader feature set than Apple’s Mail app will likely ever offer.

I’ve personally been back on the hunt for a new email app ever since my email solution of choice was shut down by Dropbox. And no, I still haven’t forgiven the company. I’ve gone through more than a dozen apps in my search for a Mailbox replacement though, and in this post I’ll save you the pain and suffering that I’ve had to endure. More →

3 of the world’s most popular Apple bloggers all say Apple has a serious problem

3 of the world’s most popular Apple bloggers all say Apple has a serious problem

To grow from the brink of bankruptcy to the most valuable company on the planet, Apple had to stray from convention in a number of ways. We’ve discussed them all at one time or another, but in this post we’ll focus on one: The user experience.

With many different types of consumer electronics, and certainly with computers and mobile devices, hardware and software go hand in hand to form a complete user experience. Different companies have different strengths and weaknesses, but over the past couple of decades Apple has become known as a company that provides a user experience that, simply put, is a cut above the rest.

According the three of the most popular and widely respected Apple bloggers in the world, however, Apple has a serious problem that continues to grow more serious as time moves on. And the worst part is that there’s simply no indication that the matter is improving. More →
