So now it’s official: we’ve got a new iPhone. Doesn’t that old iPhone 4S look a bit dated now? Thing is, you can pretty much pay nothing for your next iPhone — something I’ve proven myself in the past. But if you don’t want the hassle, we’ve got a pretty sweet deal for you — right after the jump. (more…)

On Monday, Apple announced many new features that will be coming to the iPhone in the fall of this year with iOS 6. Even though there are a lot of new features to look at, I’d like to delve into some of the notable differences in this recent alteration of Apple’s mobile operating system. After the break, I’ll take a deep look into new features like navigation, Passbook, the beautiful UI changes throughout the OS, a few of the bugs that you should watch out for when testing the beta and more.

We’ve collected the top four reviews, roundups and how-to articles from across the AppStorm network in February. Whether you’re interested in Mac, iPhone, Web, or Android apps, there’s bound to be something you didn’t spot over the course of the month. Now would be a good time to explore a part of the AppStorm Network you’ve never seen before!

Thanks for reading AppStorm, and I hope you enjoy looking over some of our favourite posts from last month!


A few months back, we took one week and celebrated everything in the productivity universe; all the apps for your iPhone that would help you get things done and be more productive. We called it, shockingly enough, Productivity Week, and it was a pretty big hit.

Today, we’re introducing a new week to the mix: Game Week. For the next 6 days, we’re going to talk about games and nothing else. We’ve got solid reviews of some of the hottest games out there, interviews with developers and even a few giveaways to help spice things up a bit.

So get ready to swipe your way into the next level — it’s Game Week here on!

It’s funny how things work, but the other day — right after I finished writing a post about how to pay nothing for your iPhone — I received an email from, and about how they would like to work with us to offer a special deal for only our readers. We started talking it out, and after a few emails were exchanged, we figured out a great deal that will get you some cash for your working or broken iPhone.

Oh, and the deal that AppStorm readers are getting is 25% more than the average person on the street. Interested? We’ll give you the deets after the break.


It came too soon.

We’ve known for a long time now that Steve Jobs has been in failing health, but in the years since he went public with his illness, we’ve seen the iPhone, iPad, MacBook Air, Mac mini and even more, all coming from his ideas. He never let his medical issues slow him down, even though a lesser man may have given up and decided to live out their days on a beach somewhere, waiting to die.

That wasn’t him, and that’s not the man we’ll remember.

I’ve always admired Steve Jobs and his vision for the world, and always found him to be a fascinating man. It’s no exaggeration to say that I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for his contribution to society. It was just August that we said goodbye to him as the CEO of Apple, and I feel it’s appropriate today to link to the post I wrote on that day now. We’ll never get Steve back, but we’ll also never forget his legacy.

There’s been a lot of excitement over the recent iOS 5 announcements. A new notifications center, a promising new Reminder app and Wifi Sync are just a few of the awesome features that we can look forward to this fall.

One feature that I’ve been getting a lot of questions about is iMessage. What is it? Will there be two messaging apps now or will it be integrated into the current messaging system? If you’re wondering about the answers to these questions, read on.


Once upon a time, back when every kid knew what TMNT stood for, a large portion of my life was devoted to my beloved Nintendo Entertainment System, and subsequently my SNES. These two consoles and several boxes full of games provided a never-ending stream of mind-numbing TV time that many parents today would never dream of allowing their kids to engage in.

These days I have almost zero time for console gaming (I’ve barely finished a single game since Ocarina of Time), but since gaming was such a major part of my childhood, I can’t help but get all excited when retro games from this time period are reborn on the gadget that I spend most of my time on these days.

Two particular games have recently caught my attention because of their old school heritage: Mike Tyson – Main Event and NBA JAM.

Last week Twitter updated the Terms of Use on their API and Ryan Sarver, one of Twitter’s top API guys, issued a very interesting statement that immediately lit a fire under developers and bloggers in the tech world.

Keep reading to see what Twitter said, whether it’s as serious as everyone thinks it is, and why it just may be the case that Twitter is screwing over the very group of people that made it what it is today.


As the editor of one of the best iPhone app publications around, I spend a lot of time in the iTunes App Store. Significant portions of my every day life are spent browsing new offerings, spotting trends and checking out the latest updates to already popular applications.

Every time I visit the App Store I can’t help but notice how broken it is. Searching and even browsing for apps is an incredibly inefficient process that gobbles up time easier than playing Angry Birds. Below we’ll discuss what’s wrong and why Apple needs to quit dragging their feet and implement a fix already!
