Many smartphone applications, including default apps that come preloaded on the device, track your location for various purposes, regardless of operating system. While some of them simply do it into help serve targeted ads, plenty of smartphone apps require access to your location for more useful purposes, so it’s likely you have location services enabled on your devices for at least a few key apps.
Even though it has plenty of reasons for hating the iPhone, Samsung should also love Apple’s top product for as long as possible, a new report suggests. Not only is Apple bringing plenty of business to Samsung even though the two companies compete fiercely in the mobile landscape, but a recent regulatory filing in South Korea revealed that the iPhone maker was one of Samsung’s top five customers again last year, just like in 2013.
As a result, Samsung will undoubtedly love to continue hating the iPhone as it does now for as long as possible. More →

So you think you’re a smartphone expert. You know your iPhone or Android phone inside and out and you constantly help your friends and family with their mobile problems. Well, we hate to break it to you, but there are still plenty of things that even the savviest smartphone users out there don’t know about.
For example, did you know that your iPhone or Android phone has tons of secret hidden menus that you can only access by dialing special codes into the phone app? More →
There is nothing worse than buying something new only to find it listed at a cheaper price elsewhere a few days later. Ok, there are many, many things worse than that, but the desire or even need to save money is a common thread that runs through most people. The Internet has made it easier than ever before to comparison shop, but it has also introduced a new problem: With all of the shopping websites out there, how do you know if you’re getting the best price?
Luckily, there’s an app for that. Actually, there are several apps for that, and in this post we’ll discuss four of them. More →
Sometimes it’s the little things that remind you just how incredible Apple’s attention to detail really is. What may seem on the surface to be minor things that really don’t have an impact on the overall user experience are actually anything but minor; every single little design detail plays a role, and they combine to have a dramatic impact on the user experience.

As we mentioned earlier, Yahoo’s Jason Gilbert this week put together an entertaining article about all of the devices over the year’s that have been labeled “iPhone killers.” While none of the devices obviously “killed” the iPhone, some of them were respectable hits such as the original Motorola Droid and the Samsung Galaxy S II. Others, however, were complete and total bombs incapable of killing nothing except their manufacturer’s bottom lines. Below, we list the 5 worst would-be iPhone “killers” ever. More →
Billionaires often have a tendency to, shall we say, speak their minds freely. This apparently rings true for Chinese billionaires who are about to jump into the smartphone market, because LeTV CEO Jia Yueting just dropped a pretty big bombshell on his verified Weibo account.
We’ve seen rivals take aim at Apple in the past in an effort to generate some buzz. For example, Samsung regularly mocks iPhone users in its TV commercials. As common as it is to jab Apple, however, we have never seen a company go this far. More →
Another week is drawing to a close and if nothing else, it has been packed full of great paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free.

Today’s list of paid iOS apps on sale for free includes $40 worth of paid apps, but you won’t pay a cent if you hurry and download them now.
China is slowly becoming Apple’s main iPhone market and Apple has a new initiative in place to help it sell more iPhones while simultaneously increasing market share in the highly competitive market.
