However, open-minded Android and iOS fans alike can see things in other platforms they like and Reddit’s Android community recently had a confessional session in which they admitted what iOS features they’d most like to see Android adopt in the future.

New free iPhone app transforms Wikipedia into a stunning interactive experience

Wikipedia is the sixth most popular website in America according to Alexa, and hundreds of millions of people rely on the site to some degree. Of course, most people also know what they’re getting themselves into when visiting Wikipedia. The information is crowd-sourced so some pages can’t always be relied upon, and the site features a very basic design that’s reminiscent of the early days of the World Wide Web.

Now, iPhone users looking to spice things up a bit can do so with a fantastic new free app. More →

I use every single feature on this list of 8 iOS and Mac features ‘you probably never use’

I use every single feature on this list of 8 iOS and Mac features ‘you probably never use’

We constantly try to share great tips and tricks with our readers in an effort to help them get the most out of their gadgets. Sometimes we put our own lists of tips together, and sometimes we point out useful lists that can be found on other sites. I came across one such list this morning, but it was presented in a particularly curious way.

The post framed eight iOS and Mac features as things that people likely don’t use because they’re too subtle or are “big misses” that remind us Apple is “human” and makes mistakes. Interestingly, however, I use and love every single feature the site listed. More →

iOS 8.3 Update iPhone Keyboard

iOS 8.3 update finally fixes an infuriating iPhone keyboard problem

iOS 8.3 update finally fixes an infuriating iPhone keyboard problem

Since iOS 8 was released this past September, Apple has taken its sweet time in issuing significant iOS updates. Thankfully, Apple has recently picked up the pace with iOS 8.2 having been released last week and the third beta of iOS 8.3 being pushed out just a few days ago.

As opposed to other iOS updates that typically focus on stability enhancements and bug fixes, iOS 8.3 is an extremely big deal. At long last, iOS 8.3 promises to fix the poorly designed iOS 8 keyboard which resulted in many iPhone users accidentally pressing the period key when they really meant to hit the spacebar.

iPhone App Rejection

You’ll never believe why Apple rejected this Buzz Aldrin iOS app

You’ll never believe why Apple rejected this Buzz Aldrin iOS app

A few years ago, we seemingly couldn’t go more than two to three weeks without hearing a story about how Apple’s App Store review team either rejected an iOS app that should have been admitted or curiously let in an app that should have never been accepted. Now, in 2015, Apple has thankfully worked out many of the kinks that once plagued the App Store review process. But every once in a while, Apple’s old habits resurface.

Most recently, Apple rejected the iOS app Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager because it references a well-known third party: Aldrin, of course, who was the second person to walk on the moon.

The crazy thing, though, is that Aldrin actually helped design and influence the game! More →

A new report from Strategy Analytics sheds further light on the state of the smartphone business in the fourth quarter last year, confirming once again the profound effect the iPhone 6 had on the industry. The analytics company revealed that during Q4 2014, Android only managed to capture 11% of the global smartphone profit share, a record-low for Google’s ecosystem, while Apple took home a record-high 89% of all smartphone profits.
