3 Apps I Use to Get The Perfect iPhone Weather Experience

Weather apps are big business, and it’s not hard to see why. Everyone wants the most accurate weather information as possible, and there are thousands of apps out there that compete for space on your smartphone. Where the iPhone is concerned, the weather app category is particularly crowded, and people often have trouble finding apps that suit their needs.

Well, I’ve tried them all. OK, maybe not all of them, but I’ve used dozens upon dozens of different weather apps over the years in an effort to find the perfect weather experience for the iPhone. After mowing through somewhere between 75 and 100 different apps, I’ve landed on a combination of three that deliver what I believe to be the ideal weather experience on the iPhone. More →

Warning: Major iPhone Security Flaw Lets Hackers Steal All Your Passwords

A very serious security flaw in Apple’s iOS mobile platform and its OS X desktop operating system has been discovered by security researchers and seemingly acknowledged by Apple. Using the flaw, hackers can build an app that is capable of stealing any and all passwords saved in Apple’s Keychain. Additionally, the same flaw can reportedly be used to steal passwords directly from third-party apps as well as Apple’s own apps. More →

Why can’t Android have great apps? iOS gets two more great releases first

Why can’t Android have great apps? iOS gets two more great releases first

As we’ve seen time and again, having the most overall market share doesn’t guarantee that Android gets the best apps before iOS does. If you want more examples of this, look no further than the two new mobile games that Bethesda announced at E3 this week that are coming to iOS first and to Android at some undetermined point in the future.

One of Android’s best features just quietly arrived on iPhone and iPad

There were plenty of flashy reveals at the WWDC 2015 keynote on Monday, but one of the least heralded announcements could change the way we download apps forever. On Wednesday, Touch Arcade pointed out that iOS users no longer need to subscribe to Apple’s $99/year developer program to run apps with the newly released Xcode 7 beta.

This might not sound very exciting, but the implications are huge. More →

New update brings the best Google Maps feature iOS has seen in months – here’s how to use it

Apple Maps is in the process of getting a huge update in iOS 9, as Apple revealed on stage during its big WWDC 2015 keynote on Monday. The new public transit features look terrific and there are plenty of other new features and refinements to be enjoyed, but the app still isn’t on par with Google Maps. In fact, in many ways, it may never be.

Google Maps for iOS just received a new update and there are a few nice feature additions to be found. Among them is one that is likely the best new feature the app has received in months, and we’re going to tell you all about it. More →

iOS Vs. Android Fanboy Wars

One big reason I’m tempted to switch to iOS: It’s become a lot more like Android

One big reason I’m tempted to switch to iOS: It’s become a lot more like Android

If you ever read the BGR comments section — a dubious idea even on the best of days — you’ll see hordes of smartphone OS fanboys getting into comically emotional and overwrought arguments over why their preferred platform is superior. As a longtime Android user who’s spent the past two weeks using an iPhone 6 (about which I’ll write much more in the future), I’ve come to see how incredibly stupid these arguments are, and not just because they involve supposedly grown men fighting over whether using iOS or Android makes you more likely to be a registered sex offender.

iOS Vs. Android App Developers

Here’s why iOS keeps getting all the best apps before Android does

Here’s why iOS keeps getting all the best apps before Android does

Even though more people use Android than use the iPhone, some of the best apps around will release on iOS first — recall that when Twitter launched its Periscope app, for instance, it came to iOS weeks before it came to Android. Why? For one thing, iOS users are simply more profitable for app developers because they tend to have extra cash that they’re willing to spend on apps. For another thing, Apple has done an amazing job of making it easier for developers to create iOS apps, as a new report from Bloomberg demonstrates. More →

60 seconds is all it takes to protect your iPhone with encryption – here’s how

Apple’s iOS platform is relatively secure out of the box thanks to Apple’s continued efforts to protect users’ data. There are a number of important security features baked into the operating system, some of which you’re likely aware of and some that operate behind the scenes. But there’s one security feature in particular that is painfully simple to enable, and yet there are still a huge number of iPhone users who ignore it.

Now, we’ll tell you about yet another reason to take 60 seconds out of your day and enable this crucial security feature. More →

This sleek new iPhone app will help you conquer email

Inbox zero isn’t just a buzz term… it’s a way of life. Back in 2013, I wrote about how I destroyed email and the feedback I received was overwhelming. So many people were so happy to have been given some guidance and some useful tools, and the reason is obvious: Email is awful unless you constantly keep it under control.

Now it’s 2015, and there are a wide range of new tools at users’ disposal that can help in the quest to achieve inbox zero. And one of the newest available tools is a new iPhone app appropriately named “Zero.” More →
