The one thing about iOS that Android might never be able to top

Google and Apple compete over a lot of things, but one battle between the two companies that deserves more attention is their intense competition for the hearts and minds of mobile app developers. And as new analysis from Benedict Evans shows, Apple has a distinct advantage here over Google despite the fact that Android dwarfs iOS in total market share worldwide: iPhone users are much more likely to pay for apps than Android users.

How to stream the huge USA vs. Germany World Cup match on a computer or phone

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you are well aware of Thursday’s huge World Cup match between USA and Germany.

80% of Flappy Bird clones on Android and iOS contain malware

As if the Flappy Bird phenomenon wasn’t infectious enough to begin with, the torrent of clones that followed the app’s release might be leading to an even bigger problem. USA Today shares the data from McAfee Labs’ latest Threat Report, which sampled over 300 of the Flappy Bird clones on the App Store and Google Play only to find that 238 or “almost 80% of them contained malware.” More →

LyveHome review

There are more photos that have been taken in the last twelve months than every photograph taken from the beginning of time up until then put together. But no one has truly solved the problem of photo organization, backups and protection, at least not in a fun and easy way. Lyve aims to do this with both hardware and software, and the company recently sent us its new flagship product to test. Has Lyve finally cracked this important problem and launched a product that’s both simple and reliable? More →

This might be the coolest (or creepiest) new social app we’ve seen in months

This might be the coolest (or creepiest) new social app we’ve seen in months

It seems like each new social app that launches pushes us further apart as a society. Thousands of users posting minutia impossible to care about… ridiculous secrets anonymously posted with zero accountabilitystupid apps designed to do little more than annoy us… it’s all becoming overwhelming. Every so often, however, something different emerges that finds novel ways to bring us closer together — and 20 Days Stranger is perhaps the most poetic new social app we have seen in quite some time.

Meet the incredible ‘smart cup’ that will give you nutritional info about what you’re drinking

One big driver for wearable computers is that they’ll supposedly give us improved health and fitness data, but what about computers that you can eat and drink from? Mark One has just taken the wraps off its Vessyl, a new 13-ounce “smart cup” that will not only be able to detect and breakdown what you’re pouting into your cup but also give you nutritional information on it such as how many calories it has as well as how much sugar, fat and caffeine it contains.

iOS and Android are becoming more alike than Apple or Google want you to think

It used to be that iOS and Android were considered polar opposites: One was all about a locked-down, walled garden that delivered a very smooth user experience while the other was a wide-open platform whose freedom came at the expense of consistent user experience. However, Jan Dawson at Techpinions points out that over the past couple of years, Apple and Google have been working to make iOS and Android a lot more alike than either company would like to have you believe.
