So it’s the day after Christmas, and those of you who celebrate the holiday are probably still working your way through piles of tinsel and empty cartons of eggnog. It seems like at our house, an iTunes gift card is usually standard fare under the tree, but more recently we’ve been getting apps given to us via the App Store.
What about you? Have you found yourself with an app under the tree? Have you given one yourself? How about gift cards? Let us know in the poll to the right.
CodeCanyon has long been a source of great iPhone apps. One of CodeCanyon’s strengths is that you can often find great tools for mobile development alongside cools apps. In fact, it’s pretty packed with timesaving tools that will make your next iPhone website or mobile development a snap. Today, we’re going to do a rundown of some of the best selling iPhone apps on CodeCanyon.
My wife loves downloading the latest games for her iPhone. Me, I’m a bit of a productivity and social networking junkie, both which are a bit of a blessing and a curse since I’m in the business of writing app reviews. The rest of my family is a bit of a hodge-podge of app junkies, with my father seemingly always looking for a new weather app, while my mother wants to get that perfect to-do list sorted out.
What about you? What’s your favorite type of app to buy? You know the drill: post your answer in the comments and let us know!
When the iPhone 4S was announced, Apple also introduced quite a few other products including Cards, which made everyone tilt their heads slightly to the left and say, “Huh?” It didn’t make a lot of sense to most people, but to me, I got it. I tweeted this right away:
New Cards app for iOS. My mother will buy this today, guaranteed. Make your own greeting cards on your iPhone.
Apple has sold greetings cards for a long time now through iPhoto, but this will take it up to the next step. Get ready to see lots of Apple cards in your mail this holiday season.
I had to do a restore on my iPhone recently, and in the process all of my apps got knocked all over the place and I had to reorganize. Being the OCD kinda guy that I am, it took me quite a bit of time to make sure that everything was put in its most optimal location, and after an hour or so of futzing with the interface, I got things good to go.
And then I used it. After a week or so I realized that there are two types of apps out there that sit on my homescreen and every other page: Ones I use, and ones I think I use. Ever run into that problem? So to maximize my layout, I decided to play around with a few different techniques and methods, each of which with their own advantages and disadvantages. If you’re a bit OCD like myself (or just curious), hit the jump and we’ll talk it out.
Last week we asked you to show us your iPhone’s home screens, and the response was overwhelming. So much so that we decided to show off as many home screens as possible by packing it into one big roundup.
Now, of course, there are a few duplicates here and there, but we did our best to trim it down and make the list a bit more manageable. Thanks to all of you who submitted your home screens, and hit the jump the check them out!
A week or so ago, I was going through my usual routine and looking at our sister site, Mac.AppStorm, when I found an excellent post by Jorge Rodriguez titled, “Our Favorite Apps: What the AppStorm Crew Couldn’t Live Without.” Anytime I read a post like that, I always come away with new apps for my arsenal that I had either never used before or never thought of, and that’s exactly what happened this time.
With that in mind, I decided to “borrow” Jorge’s concept and do the same thing over here at iPhone.AppStorm. I contacted our team and asked them what their favorite apps were. The answers might surprise you.
A week or so back, I tweeted about a statistic I had seen online. The premise was that the average iOS customer spends around $150 on apps. At the time, I joked that I probably spent more than that in a few months, but then I started thinking about it. Frankly, it kind of festered in my head for a bit. Why does that number seem low to me?
So to get it out of my head, I decided to put it to a poll. Please select from the options on the right, and then we can check back on the results later to see how much our readers spend per year.
With the iTunes Store now containing well over 300,000 apps and growing at unprecedented rates, the iPhone has become the source of a fairly new type of serious psychological condition: App Addiction. We here at iPhone.AppStorm are full-blown app addicts and proudly download and test every new toy we can get our hands on.
Today we want to gauge your level of app addiction with a simple poll that asks how many apps you download per week (not counting standard updates). Are you a casual downloader or an obsessive app-crazed lunatic!?
After voting in the poll, leave a comment and let us know how many of these are paid apps and how many are free. Do you stick to free downloads or are you spending serious amounts of cash to build up the ever-growing kingdom of Apple?
Earlier this week, Apple dedicated their homepage to a special announcement that something big was coming from iTunes. They hyped it as a day we would “never forget.” Speculation immediately ran wild, everything from an early launch of the Mac App Store to a cloud-based iTunes service was postulated.
We now know that the big news was about the Beatles finally coming to iTunes. This represents the end of years of legal struggles for Apple, but is it really a day you’ll never forget? Cast your vote and let us know! Then leave a comment below and tell us whether or not you’ve purchased any iTunes Beatles music.
