Want to lose weight? This iPhone app lets you do Weight Watchers without paying $20/month

Weight Watchers has worked for millions of people looking to get shed some pounds by improving their diets, but not everyone can afford to pay the $19.95 monthly fee Weight Watchers charges. Sure, there are other ways to lose weight — I lost 50 lbs in just three months without help from Weight Watchers — but the Weight Watchers program has been proven to be effective for many, many people so it’s clearly worth trying.

Now, however, there’s an iPhone app that gives you access to everything the official Weight Watchers program has to offer, but there’s no monthly fee at all. More →

How have you lived this long without knowing these 10 hidden iPhone tricks?

Some people like to pretend they know it all when it comes to Apple’s iPhone. I promise: you don’t know it all. Even if you’ve been carrying an iPhone in your pocket since the first day the handset became available back in 2007, you still don’t know everything there is to know about all of the phone’s features, because there are just too many things baked into iOS to remember them all.

Don’t worry, that’s why we’re here… More →

4 killer Amazon deals every iPhone and Android phone user needs to check out

4 killer Amazon deals every iPhone and Android phone user needs to check out

Call it part of the burden of smartphone ownership: you simply can’t do without certain accessories. Paying $400, $500 or even $600+ for a smartphone is only the beginning — if you want to get the most out of your iPhone or Android phone purchase and make life as easy as possible, you’ll also need to buy several accessories.

Additional chargers are a must, of course, but buying OEM isn’t always the best way to go. And of course, there aren’t always any OEM options when it comes to portable power packs, so you’ll need to look elsewhere.

Today, we’ve got four limited-time Amazon deals to tell you about, and you won’t want to miss them. More →

iOS 9 Best Features

iOS 9: All the best new features and additions we’ve discovered so far

iOS 9: All the best new features and additions we’ve discovered so far

Now that we’re a few weeks out from the release of iOS 8.4, it’s time to look ahead to the future of Apple’s mobile operating system. Back in June, Apple unveiled iOS 9 and announced that the update would begin rolling out to the public in the fall. Since then, we’ve seen four beta releases and the launch of a public beta.

As you might recall, Apple issued six separate beta releases for iOS 8, the last of which dropped in August — a month before the final public launch of the software. Providing Apple is working on a similar timeline in 2015, we’ve likely seen most of what the company has to offer in iOS 9 already, so we’re going to take this opportunity to round up all of the most interesting features we’ve discovered since the first beta rolled out in early June.

How to install iOS 9 beta 4 right now without a developer account

For the first time ever, Apple is giving the general public free access to beta versions of its latest iOS software. The first public beta of iOS 9 was released earlier this month, and it gives Apple fans a chance to see what’s coming to the next-generation iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus later this year.

But if you want the latest and greatest Apple has to offer, the public beta isn’t going to cut it — you still need a paid developer account to access the latest iOS 9 betas as Apple releases them. Or do you? More →

iPhone Vs Android

iPhone 6 triggers record number of Android switchers

iPhone 6 triggers record number of Android switchers

iPhone sales during Apple’s most recent quarter skyrocketed 35% year over year, an impressive figure attributable, in part, to a record number of Android switchers opting to see what life is like within the confines of the iOS ecosystem.

News of the uptick in Android to iPhone migration was relayed by Tim Cook who, during Apple’s earnings conference call yesterday, said that Apple over the last three months saw the “highest switcher rate from Android that we’ve ever measured.” Cook seemed genuinely pleased with the data point, making a point of mentioning it two other times during the call.

10 hidden tricks that could completely change the way you use your iPhone

If Apple included a paper user manual with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that included explanations of each and every feature, it would be the size of a phone book.

Even if you’ve been an iPhone user for years, there are still hidden features that are waiting to be discovered.

Today, we’re going to help you discover 10 such features, and you may never look at your phone the same way again. More →

iPhone is king as Apple earnings top expectations

Apple just released its earnings report for the company’s June quarter and, per usual, Apple surpassed analyst expectations, albeit slightly. For the quarter gone by, Apple posted a net profit of $10.7 billion on revenue of $49.6 billion. Earnings per share, meanwhile, checked in at $1.85.

In the build-up to Apple’s earnings report, analysts were anticipating revenue of $49.5 billion and EPS of $1.81.

By way of contrast, Apple during the same quarter a year-ago posted profits of $7.7 billion on the back of $37.4 billion in revenue. Meanwhile, Apple’s EPS a year ago checked in at $1.28.
