5 secret features hiding inside your iPhone

We recently published an article titled “25 hidden iPhone features that are really, truly hidden” and it was one of our most popular iPhone posts ever. Why? Because over the years, iOS has grown more and more feature-rich, which means there are more and more features that get lost in the shuffle for many users.

Simply put, there is no way to remember everything the iPhone can do. I have even spoken to people who work at Apple who learn things they didn’t know from the tips and tricks content we publish.

Our last post covered 25 hidden features and some of them are awesome — if you haven’t checked it out already, you really should. As we mentioned though, we’ll continue to post nifty how-to content covering hidden features as we find it because you can never know too much about your smartphone. More →

Galaxy S7 Edge Photos

First ever live photo of the Galaxy S7 edge has now leaked

First ever live photo of the Galaxy S7 edge has now leaked

All of the puzzle pieces are quickly falling into place now that the official unveiling of Samsung’s next-generation flagship phones is just a few weeks away. Early Monday morning a leak revealed the first live photo ever of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S7, which is set to debut on February 21st during a press conference in Spain. Unfortunately, that photo only showed the back of the phone so there were still some unanswered questions as far as the handset’s design is concerned.

Now, a newly leaked photo has given us our first ever look at the front of the Galaxy S7 edge, which will be the main Galaxy S7’s partner in crime on store shelves for the next few months. More →

Holy moly what a Super Bowl, right?!? Just kidding, it was a pretty awful game, though it was nice to see Manning string together a championship so late in his career. You know what will help you get over how disappointingly boring the game was — aside from the awesome Super Bowl commercials, of course? A sweet list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free.

iPhone 7 Release

Yup, it looks like the iPhone 7 is going to be huge

Yup, it looks like the iPhone 7 is going to be huge

2016 is going to be a very interesting year for Apple, and for Apple investors. The iPhone is obviously the core of Apple’s business, and after the smartphone’s meteoric growth finally tapered off in the holiday quarter last year, negative growth appears to be imminent. Apple bears say it’s the beginning of the end, while Apple bulls say Apple bears are being ridiculous and the company still has plenty of room to grow. Both groups have made reasonable arguments in recent weeks, but it’s the bulls who have a new reason to cheer on Monday morning. More →

Best Super Bowl Commercials

The 10 best Super Bowl commercials of 2016 (and the one worst Super Bowl ad)

The 10 best Super Bowl commercials of 2016 (and the one worst Super Bowl ad)

On Sunday night, two teams clashed on the biggest stage in professional football and left it all out on the field in their quest to become the champions of Super Bowl 50. It was an epic meeting for the record books as Broncos quarterback Payton Manning sought to put the ultimate cherry on top of an illustrious career. Meanwhile Carolina QB Cam Newton looked to cap off one of the most impressive seasons of the past decade by continuing the momentum his Panthers had been building throughout the playoffs.

At least, that’s probably what happened. We’re not sure because we were too busy watching all the Super Bowl commercials. More →

Netflix Shows Release Schedule

Netflix exec explains 2 reasons why the company won’t release shows on a weekly schedule

Netflix exec explains 2 reasons why the company won’t release shows on a weekly schedule

Netflix is one of the few companies out there that actually deserves the “game-changer” label the press loves to throw around these days. No, a startup that’s trying to create an Uber for cats is not a game-changer (…or is it?). But a company that completely upended the entertainment industry by popularizing a new means of consuming content? Yes, that’s a game-changer.

The media streaming giant has indeed changed the game in a number of ways, and one was accomplished in tandem with another entertainment game-changer: the DVR. Instead of sitting down at the same time each week to watch a show, people now enjoy TV on their own time. When shows first air though, making viewers wait to watch new episodes has historically helped generate buzz — so why does Netflix release all of its episodes of a new season at once? More →

Best Email Apps For iPhone

The only 5 email apps iPhone users should consider using

The only 5 email apps iPhone users should consider using

There are a few cases where a pre-installed iPhone app made by Apple is the best tool for a particular job, but the Mail app certainly isn’t one of them. For light email users, it’s a nice clean option that offers a fairly basic set of features and a nice user interface. For the rest of us, we need a solution that offers a broader feature set than Apple’s Mail app will likely ever offer.

I’ve personally been back on the hunt for a new email app ever since my email solution of choice was shut down by Dropbox. And no, I still haven’t forgiven the company. I’ve gone through more than a dozen apps in my search for a Mailbox replacement though, and in this post I’ll save you the pain and suffering that I’ve had to endure. More →

3 of the world’s most popular Apple bloggers all say Apple has a serious problem

3 of the world’s most popular Apple bloggers all say Apple has a serious problem

To grow from the brink of bankruptcy to the most valuable company on the planet, Apple had to stray from convention in a number of ways. We’ve discussed them all at one time or another, but in this post we’ll focus on one: The user experience.

With many different types of consumer electronics, and certainly with computers and mobile devices, hardware and software go hand in hand to form a complete user experience. Different companies have different strengths and weaknesses, but over the past couple of decades Apple has become known as a company that provides a user experience that, simply put, is a cut above the rest.

According the three of the most popular and widely respected Apple bloggers in the world, however, Apple has a serious problem that continues to grow more serious as time moves on. And the worst part is that there’s simply no indication that the matter is improving. More →

iPhone Vs Android

Dollars and Sense: The iPhone is the only phone that actually still excites people

Dollars and Sense: The iPhone is the only phone that actually still excites people

Almost exactly four years ago, Samsung’s marketing boss sat down for an interview and made a claim that seemed almost comical at the time. There was a bit of a language barrier, but the gist of Young-Hee Lee’s bold claim was this: People had been obsessed with Apple’s iPhone line for long enough, and Samsung was going to shift their obsession to Galaxy phones.

If only it were that easy, right? Well, as it turns out, it is that easy when you’ve got a massive smartphone division and tens of billions of dollars to spend on marketing. More →

LTE Speed Test Comparison

See how painfully slow 4G LTE is in the U.S. compared to the rest of the world

See how painfully slow 4G LTE is in the U.S. compared to the rest of the world

It turns out T-Mobile is a one-eyed man in the land of the blind. In a recent study conducted on a massive scale, T-Mobile was found to have the fastest 4G LTE network in America, narrowly beating Verizon. But here’s the bad news: 4G LTE networks in America are painfully slow to begin with. OpenSignal released new data on Thursday showing that the average LTE download speed in the United States is less than one-third as fast as the top-ranked nation.

Who is ranked No. 1? How many countries out there have faster LTE download speeds than the U.S.? Prepare to be saddened. More →
