There are few greater awards for an app than to be featured at a product launch. Nike+ Move, created by the same software team that developed the Nike FuelBand, is the latest chapter in a close partnership between Nike and Apple. The app finds itself in an odd position: it is, by far, the most hyped program to use the M7 co-processor found in the iPhone 5S. It also utilizes the same score system as the FuelBand. Do these two factors create the ultimate fitness app, or a jumbled mess of ideas? (more…)
I’ve written this review twice now. The first time was in the heat of the moment. I was excited about Knock — a new app that was getting a lot of hype from the usual tech pundits, and I was enjoying it after just a few minutes of use. I was typing wildly like I was on a bender.
But then I told myself to calm down. Knock was cool, yes. But did it deserve my excessive praise? I figured I should let it soak in for a few days and see how it goes; analyze the app and see what solution it solves. And now that I’ve cooled off a bit, what’s the verdict? Well … (more…)
Did you watch today’s Apple Event live? Well we did, and just in case you missed something, here’s EVERYTHING that happened today in one convenient place. Ready? We bet you are. Then let’s go! (more…)
I went on a road trip recently, and while I was running my trusty iPhone 5 (the 5s/c wasn’t out yet), a buddy of mine had his Samsung Galaxy S III. We, of course, did the whole Apple versus Android thing, but in the end, one of the things I kept looking at was the size of his phone. It was huge.
Huge, and yet, cool. It was unwieldy to pocket, even though it was only just a half inch wider and taller than my iPhone. It looked cheap, although it might have been because of the peeling plastic screen protector or the regular abuse my friend put it through. But man, that screen. That was cool. Will we ever see that with the iPhone? (more…)
It was a tuesday, and since I got home from the office early that day, I decided to pop into my son’s daycare to take him home. As I open the door, I see him (wearing a fireman’s hat) with two other boys, all crowded around a PC screen. They keep touching the CRT and my son says, “It’s broken.”
The touchscreen — and more specifically, the popularity of the iPhone and iPad — have changed the way we interact with technology. A few years ago, Steve Jobs was insistent that touchscreen computers just weren’t going to take off. But my three-year-old boy says different. And I think he might be right.

It’s official: Apple has announced an event for September 10 at 10 am. So what will we find out?
Well the rumors currently are on a new iPhone, available in gold and a low-cost version, plus maybe we’ll see Mavericks come out and play. Oh, and of course there’s iOS 7, which should come out just before the rumored new device. Also, there’s talk of a new iPad of some kind, and there’s the usual “Apple TV and iWatch” stuff, but nothing concrete.
Are you excited about the event next week? Stay tuned, because we’ll be covering it here!
Let’s face it: we all want to be smarter. The only problem seems to be that programs that allow us to do so are very costly or not realistic with our everyday schedules. However, one tool that we overlook happens to be in our pocket. That’s right, it’s our iPhone.
The App Store has a wealth of applications that can help you exercise your brain, whether you have five minutes on hand or hours to spare. Plus, many of these applications are free. Today we have a roundup of 40 iPhone apps that help make you smarter. Read on to find out which ones made the cut.
The new iPhone should be out this fall, and per usual, there’s a lot of talk about this next iPhone coming in more colors than just black and white. The iPod touch already has several color options, why not the iPhone, right?
Let’s pretend that you’re the person in charge of the decision. What do you think? Should the next iPhone come in more colors than black and white, or is it just fine as is? Let us know in the poll to the right!
People talk all the time about the release of a “low-end” iPhone. What denotes low-end? Sometimes it’s a lower amount of memory, other times it’s a non-Retina display. But whatever they say today, the concept is that Apple needs to release some kind of free iPhone at the same time that they release whatever the next model happens to be. So, in theory, there would be an iPhone 5S (or 6, or whatever), and this hypothetical low-end iPhone.
What do you think? Do you want a low-end iPhone or do you care? Let us know in the poll to the right!
