The 35 best iOS games of all time

The 35 best iOS games of all time

Remember when the iPhone first came out and didn’t include support for third-party apps? Thankfully that changed in the summer of 2008, and while Apple was hardly the first smartphone maker to support third-party apps and games, it completely changed the mobile device landscape when it did so by way of a simple on-device portal. Today, the App Store is home to more than 1.36 million apps and games, and hundreds more are approved each day.

Turning our attention to games, we’ve seen some real gems come and go over the past six-plus years. But of the thousands upon thousands of games that have hit the app store, which ones can be considered the absolute best? More →

Samsung’s stumbles mean there’s no one to stop Apple from crushing everything in its path

Samsung’s smartphone profits have been taking big hits over the past year and that means Apple has become just about the only smartphone vendor in the world whose phones make significant profits. For a long time, Apple and Samsung ruled supreme as the world’s only two consistently profitable smartphone vendors but new data from Canaccord Genuity suggests Apple is now the only one left in the driver’s seat.

This is the dumbest iPhone app I’ve ever seen – and that’s why it’s so brilliant

This is the dumbest iPhone app I’ve ever seen – and that’s why it’s so brilliant

Some of the best apps in the world are apps that add incredibly complex functionality to our smartphones and tablets. These apps can often take months to develop, even with large teams building them. Then, every once in a while you come across an app that’s so painfully simple, you wonder why it hasn’t existed for years.

Such is the case with a new app for the iPhone and Android phones called LookFor, which is so simple that its creators call it the “world’s dumbest app.” More →

iOS 9 Video

Amazing concept video shows just how great the iPhone’s Notification Center could be

Amazing concept video shows just how great the iPhone’s Notification Center could be

iOS 8 was a huge update for Apple’s mobile operating system. It didn’t include a big visual overhaul like iOS 7, but it likely included more behind the scenes updates than any other iOS update before it. One thing it did not include, however, was a substantial update to the notifications functionality in Notification Center on the iPhone and iPad.

Apple initially “borrowed” some ideas from Android to create its Notification Center, and it’s certainly miles better than Apple’s old notification system in iOS, which was absolutely terrible. But there is still a long way to go before Notification Center reaches its full potential, and a new concept video shows us a few ways Apple could make notifications infinitely more useful.

iPhone Widget Twitter App

This cool iPhone app found a great new use for widgets that you’ve never seen before

This cool iPhone app found a great new use for widgets that you’ve never seen before

App developers are getting very creative with the new widget capabilities that Apple added in iOS 8. While Apple may never add conventional widget support to iOS, Notification Center widgets provide a compromise that gives users access to one-swipe information as opposed to zero-touch information, as is the case with Android widgets.

We’ve seen plenty of cool and creative widgets for the iPhone pop up, and now we have a new one to add to the list: NC. More →
