Here’s a complete list of apps that use the awesome new Handoff feature in iOS 8

The coolest new feature that spans across both iOS and OS X announced this year has definitely been the Handoff feature that will let you quickly move information and data between iOS devices and your Mac.

Below we’ve listed all of the apps that support Handoff so far, which come to us by way of App Advice. More →

How to quickly and easily enable Apple’s sleek new ‘dark mode’ on your Mac

Apple’s new OS X Yosemite software is a huge update for Mac users. The latest version of Apple’s desktop software includes a great visual overhaul that makes the user interface much flatter and more modern, with some apps that even go as far as to mirror the look of iOS 8. But beyond the obvious new graphical changes, Yosemite also includes a nifty new “dark mode” that makes a few key changes to OS X’s interface that actually have a pretty dramatic impact on the look of the operating system.

8 awesome Android 5.0 Lollipop features missing from iOS 8

8 awesome Android 5.0 Lollipop features missing from iOS 8

By on October 24, 2014 at 10:20 AM.

After initially showing off iOS 8 during its annual WWDC event this past summer, Apple finally released the software in September and then issued its first major update earlier this month. iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 represent huge steps forward for Apple’s mobile devices, bringing tons of great new functions to compatible iPhone and iPad models. Features like audio messaging, the new QuickType keyboard and Apple’s Continuity functionality are all awesome additions to iOS, but of course there is still plenty missing from Apple’s mobile platform.

Now that Google’s Android 5.0 Lollipop software is official, it’s time to take a look at a few key features found in Google’s latest and greatest that are sadly still absent in iOS. More →

Google Inbox Download

This free app is a fantastic alternative to Google’s game-changing email app ‘Inbox’

This free app is a fantastic alternative to Google’s game-changing email app ‘Inbox’

By on October 24, 2014 at 9:30 AM.

Rumors swirled last year suggesting that Google was trying to acquire email startup Mailbox, but all that came to an end when Mailbox was acquired by Dropbox. So, Google decided to build its own Mailbox. Unveiled and released earlier this week, “Inbox” is Google’s new email app that has tech bloggers buzzing, once again heralding a fresh take on email as a game-changer. We have used the app ourselves and there’s no question that Google has done a terrific job so far of aping many of the best features from Mailbox and dumping them into a gorgeous interface with some great new features.

Inbox is an early beta and it still has a long way to go before it can be considered a complete email solution, and for the time being it only works with personal Gmail accounts. Also, the service is accessible only by invite, though invitations are fairly easy to come by (go here and click the link in the top right corner to request an invite).

Are you looking for a similar solution that’s even more comprehensive and works with a wider range of email services? We might have just the app you’re searching for. More →

Apple App Store Porn App

Why did Apple email porn to this man?

Why did Apple email porn to this man?

Apple’s stance on porn in iOS apps is well-known, and such in-app content is likely to get an application rejected from the App Store until the developer addresses it. Even facilitating access to porn may be a good reason for Apple to prevent an application from reaching the App Store. In fact, a developer of one app that could offer users a way to access adult content has been contacted by Apple on the matter in an unexpected, explicit, and shocking way. More →

How to ditch Yosemite and roll back to Mavericks

Apple’s 2014 OS X update is already available to plenty of Mac users — even though not all supported machines have what it takes to let users enjoy some of Yosemite’s coolest features — but that doesn’t mean all Mac owners who jumped on Yosemite after Apple released it last week are necessarily happy with the upgrade. Unlike with iOS 8 users, who can’t downgrade their iOS devices to iOS 7 (at least not officially), Mac users have the option of jumping back to Mavericks if they so desire, and OS X Daily has put together a quick guide on how to downgrade a Yosemite-running system to last year’s OS.

Hugely underrated iOS 8 trick lets you share your location with friends at all times

If you use FacebookApple Maps, or Google Maps, it’s pretty easy to find where you are on a map with GPS. But what about when you want others to know where you are at any given time? Imagine if you’re in a car wreck and no one knows where you are. Or if a loved one is picking you up and they don’t know the exact address where you’re standing. It would be helpful for friends, family and the police to be able to find you with a location-sharing option for your iPhone, and luckily iOS 8 does just that. More →

The crucial iPhone 6 jailbreak app you need has just been updated to work on iOS 8.1

Soon after Apple released iOS 8.1, the first major update for iOS 8, the Pangu team of Chinese hackers that created untethered jailbreak tools for previous iOS versions released a jailbreak tool for iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 devices, though it lacked Cydia support, which is the main reason users would want to jailbreak their devices in the first place. Luckily, as iDownload Blog reports, Cydia creator Saurik has pushed an update to it to make it compatible with jailbroken iOS 8 devices. More →
