Facebook has designed its app so that whenever you open a webpage posted by a friend on the Facebook app, it will cache the entire page on your device. This is obviously a problem since the more pages you visit, the more space gradually gets eaten up. More →

6 ways Android is still better than the iPhone

In the battle for mobile supremacy between Apple’s iOS platform and Google’s Android software, it is impossible to say which is better. The reason is simple: neither is better. Each platform has clear benefits over the other, and each one also has areas where it is lagging behind its rival.

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 →
