Addiction isn’t the only side-effect of owning a smart gadget such as a phone or tablet. The more we use them, especially phones, the more we’re endangering our health. Various studies have already shown the negative effects these devices have on our posture, and there’s even a neurological condition that can be caused by overusing a smartphone.
Today is July 10th, and we’re celebrating by sharing 10 paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free for a limited time. Today’s list has something for everyone, and it’s our biggest list of the week. If 10 isn’t enough for you though, you can always head back to yesterday’s post, where there are still a few paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free. More →
There’s an old and unwritten rule in advertising which states that a market leading company should never reference competitors by name. This is why you don’t often, if ever, see Coke mention or even reference Pepsi, or McDonald’s reference Burger King.
Similarly, with the iPhone controlling the high-end of the smartphone market for years on end now, most of Apple’s advertising efforts have focused on what users can accomplish with their device rather than taking potshots at Android handsets. On the flip side, it seems as if Samsung can’t go 3 months without releasing some sort of anti-iPhone ads.
The iPhone has never been on par with the competition when it comes to internal components on paper, but Apple manages to beat rivals consistently when it comes to overall performance. The Cupertino-based smartphone maker improves the iPhone’s hardware each year at its own pace, although it also set some standards in the industry, including having launched the first mass-market phone with a 64-bit mobile processor.
Wednesday’s list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free was a fantastic one, but Thursday is a brand new day with a brand new list of apps. We have nine fresh iOS apps for you today, and they’re spread across a wide range of categories so there’s something for everyone.
Microsoft announced massive restructuring plans for its mobile division earlier this week, which come with an equally impressive write-off. But that doesn’t mean Microsoft is ready to admit it has lost the battle with iPhone and Android just yet. The company will continue to manufacture Windows handsets in the coming years, focusing on three categories of smartphones, and severely limiting the number of new releases. More →
Apple on Tuesday released iOS 9 beta 3, which, as the name might suggest, is the third developer-only version of its new iOS 9 software. After a rocky start with iOS 9 beta 1 — at least, where battery life was concerned — beta 2 really cleaned things up, allowing developers to focus on new features instead of crashes.
Our trusted sources have told us that Apple was set to release iOS 9 beta 3 on Tuesday, but a serious bug was discovered and it had to be fixed. The repaired build will likely be released later today, we’re told.
In the meantime, it looks like Apple’s misfire on Tuesday led to a slip up regarding the new iOS 9 build’s release notes. In short, they leaked, and you can check out all the changes right here. More →
Yesterday’s list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free was one of our most popular lists in a long time, and if you hurry you can still get a few apps in that post for free. Today, of course, we’ve got eight fresh paid iOS apps for you, and each and every one is on sale today. More →
Yesterday’s list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free was a fantastic one, and a few of those limited-time sales are still going, so be sure to check out Monday’s post and download them while you can. For Tuesday though, we have a fresh batch of nine apps that are normally all paid, but they’re free downloads right now if you hurry. More →
As we discussed in a recent post, iPhone and iPad owners who are willing to jailbreak their devices are treated to countless features, tweaks and upgrades that everyone else will never see, but for many users, it’s just not worth the hassle. After all, your iPhone probably already does everything you need it to anyway, including play Nintendo DS games without a jailbreak. More →
