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. In fact, developers will continue to add new features made possible by iOS 8 for many months to come.

One of the most interesting new user-facing features added in iOS 8 is the addition of Today widget support, which is a battery-friendly compromise that adds widget functionality to iPhones and iPads but moves it off of the home screen. 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 →

This is why you can’t use Touch ID to log in to your iPhone after rebooting

This is why you can’t use Touch ID to log in to your iPhone after rebooting

In the 14 months since Touch ID launched, it has become a standout feature of the iPhone and iPad line of devices. It makes paying for apps easier than ever, it’s a shift toward enhanced mobile security and it was the key to making Apple Pay a reality… but it still has its limitations.

Reddit user Xenon808 asked a question this week that many of us have probably pondered in the past:

“Why do you have to type in your PIN after rebooting your phone or after a certain amount of time?” More →

How To Free Up Space On iPhone

How to see which apps are hogging all the storage on your iPhone or iPad

How to see which apps are hogging all the storage on your iPhone or iPad

While iOS 8 is probably the most substantial update Apple’s mobile software platform has ever received, adoption has been shockingly slow compared to earlier iOS updates. It makes sense that people might not be quite as quick to update to iOS 8 as they were with iOS 7, which introduced an exciting new look for iOS. But the gap has been fairly significant, and most people seem to agree that the explanation for the slower adoption rate is fairly simple: People just don’t have enough free space on their devices to download and install iOS 8 or iOS 8.1 over the air.

Connecting to iTunes to perform the update is one possibility, but many people have never connected their iPhones and iPads to a computer and don’t want to start now. If you fall into that category, here’s the best thing you can to free up space and update your smartphone or tablet. More →
