Friday’s batch includes 11 iOS apps in total, and they’re all free downloads for a limited time. Thursday’s post also has some remaining freebies, so be sure to check that one out as well. More →

Since 2007, I’ve read countless versions of the “Apple is doomed” argument, most of them related to the iPhone. Apple was doomed because it dared compete in the smartphone business, then it was doomed when Android came along, and then it was doomed every time a product failed to arouse the imagination of some analyst or journalist. In all this time, however, Apple has been anything but doomed. And it’s likely that will not happen in the foreseeable future.
Today’s version of “Apple is doomed” comes from well-known outspoken software developer Marco Arment, who has often shared his views on Apple’s business. His take on the matter has an “if” in it, suggesting this scenario isn’t likely to happen, but his reasoning isn’t entirely accurate. More →
A report today from the South China Morning Post claims that Foxconn, Apple’s longtime manufacturing partner, has replaced over half of its workforce with robots. That’s bad news for the workers and good news for Apple’s bottom line, but it also hints at something else: the solution to Apple’s offshore manufacturing “problem.”
Tuesday’s collection of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free was great, but that doesn’t mean we get a free pass on Wednesday. We’re back with a fresh new back of apps that are all normally paid downloads but are on sale for free right now. You can still check back in yesterday’s post if you want though, and you’ll find that more than half of the apps listed in there are still free. More →
One of the many reasons cord cutting has grown so popular in recent years is the abundance of video content available online. It would take 1,000 lifetimes to watch all of the videos out there, and the amount of content continues to grow exponentially. But despite all of the great content that’s freely available, cord cutters continue to subscribe to pay services like Netflix and Hulu. One reason is obviously to gain access to their content, but there’s also another problem with sites like YouTube: It is becoming increasingly difficult to find good content.
A newly launched app and website is looking to tackle that problem by offering a curated viewing experience that delivers curated streams of continuous videos that are structured like traditional TV channels. More →
These days, an iPhone 6 in half-decent condition sells for about $400. So why exactly are people willing to pay upwards of $50,000 for an older, weirder iPhone 6?
Modular phones are in vogue this year: Google’s pushing ahead with plans for its own handset with interchangeable cameras and speakers, while LG has already made a stab at things with its G5. You’d be right in thinking that Apple isn’t going to make its own modular iPhone any time soon. But luckily, case maker Otterbox is on hand with the Universe case, which offers attachments for everything from tripods to lenses to flash storage.
Unfortunately, it’s also unspeakably ugly.
An app that grabs still photos from your videos… an app that will help you manage your finances… an app that will block every mention of Donald Trump from your phone… all this and more can be found in today’s list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free. And if the 12 apps we’ve dug up for you today aren’t enough, be sure to check out the remaining sales in yesterday’s post. More →
In most countries, the iPhone is the most expensive smartphone you can buy. The iPhone’s price can be quite prohibitive in certain markets where Apple would like to see growth, including China and India, and the company is apparently aware of the problem. Without committing to anything, Apple CEO Tim Cook said during his visit in India that Apple is considering making a cheaper iPhone, but he insisted that the company’s priority is shipping quality products.

There is nothing in consumer tech right now that’s as hot as the smartphone market, even as it nears saturation in many regions, and the real beauty of it is that there are so many options. Every company out there wants a piece of the action and they’re all looking for ways to differentiate their products, so there really is something for everyone. It’s not easy to make a choice that can truly be considered wrong since different people have different needs and wants, but there is one line of smartphones that people probably shouldn’t bother with unless they having a burning desire to dump hundreds of dollars into a dead platform.
As noted by market research firm Gartner, Windows Phone’s share of the global smartphone market actually fell below 1% this past quarter for the first time ever, market yet another stop on Microsoft’s one-way trip to smartphone irrelevance. As such, the worst mistake you can make when buying a new phone is to buy a Windows Phone, unless you’re fine with burning cash on a platform that’s on its way out.
Actually, there is one smartphone platform that somehow has an even lower share of the global market — BlackBerry OS — but it’s so low that it’s not even worth discussing anymore. More →
After ending last week with a killer list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free, we knew we had to begin this week on the right foot. As such, we’ve put together a solid list of 10 paid iOS apps that are all free downloads for a limited time. You’ll find nifty photography apps, a top-rated game, some productivity apps you won’t want to miss, and more. As always though, these sales could end at any time. More →
