You have to check out this unique iPhone app that adds a game to your Today widgets

Apple’s massive iOS 8 update was released this past September and developers are still updating their apps to take full advantage of the thousands of new capabilities Apple added in its new mobile software.

And now, a new app has brought what is definitely one of the most fun and creative Today widgets we’ve seen so far. More →

Earlier this month, researchers at cybersecurity firm FireEye discovered a vulnerability in the iOS operating system which could allow hackers to replace legitimate apps with malicious copies, giving them access to any data the user entered into the hacked app. These “Masque Attacks” were enough of a threat to convince the U.S. government to release a statement warning iPhone users to avoid downloading apps from third-party sources until the issue could be resolved.

Apple was quick to issue its own response, downplaying the severity of the vulnerability, but further research by Trend Micro seems to indicate that the threat is even more serious that originally reported. More →

Two great new iOS 8 keyboards you can download for free

While it didn’t pack the huge visual overhaul iOS 7 had, Apple’s recent iOS 8 update was easily the biggest update to the iOS platform in years.

Among them was third-party keyboard support, which iPhone and iPad users had been clamoring for.

Keyboards are a popular category and we see new additions pop up almost every week at this point, but there are two in particular — one that was just updated and one that will be updated soon — that we recommend checking out. And the best part is that they’re both free. More →

After wiping his original 16GB iPad mini, that’s exactly what Kirk McElhearn attempted to find out. More →
