With iTunes’ famous festival kicking off on September 1st, Apple updated the Apple TV with the bespoke iTunes Festival app which gives access to the entire 30 day schedule, as well as photos from previous year’s events and this year’s trailer. The channel on Apple TV is very much as you’d expect it to be. It’s simple to navigate, and graphic-led. In…

Dungeon Keeper, popular 90s PC game, making its way to iOS later this year

Back in 1996 when a PC first landed in my family home, it came with a few demo CD-ROMs (remember those?), one of which featured a devilishly fun demo of Dungeon Keeper. Frustratingly, it didn’t work on the Windows 95 machine, and so a few years later when we updated to a new machine, I tried it out. And it worked. I was hooked. I didn’t care that…

Rumor: Apple to launch iPhone 5S, 5C on September 20 in Japan

As we inch closer and closer to the announcement of the latest iPhone(s), the rumors are picking up, and it appears more and more likely that we will see two new iPhones from Apple this Fall. A new report today by Japan’s Nikkei claims that the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will be launched in Japan on September 20th. This expected launch is 10 days after…

New iWatch concept shows sleek, curved design with iOS 7

The Apple iWatch has been rumored a lot, but it’s been quite some time since we’ve seen a concept of what the device could look like. Fortunately, Federico Ciccarese from Ciccarese Design has decided to show off his brand new iWatch concept and I must say that if this is Apple’s plan, I’ll be first in line to buy this on launch day at my local Apple…

EA: FIFA 14 will adopt freemium format

Freemium apps are becoming the new thing with app and game developers for mobile devices. The model allows downloaders to play the game, or use the app, without having to pay for the download itself, and then offers in-app purchases to enhance the experience and unlock all features of the game or app. This model proves successful because many users only…

Goodbye Jake, it’s been fun!

Back in 2010, when TiP first went online we went through something of a drastic change in personnel. Within 6 months of launching I think we’d lost a good handful of the original crew, and we opened it up to more applications. One of those ‘second wave’ applicants was Jake Rosati. He entertained us with his application video. It basically involved him…

Saying Goodbye [VID]

After three years and one month, my time at Today’s iPhone has finally come to an end. I owe a huge thank you to everyone who watched and shared the videos I made and the articles I wrote, and to the whole Today’s iPhone team. To Cam, who I’ve known just about as long as I’ve been on the site, it’s been amazing working with you and I’m really going…

YouTube app gets revamped UI in update

YouTube has just received a major update to version 2.0. Just like the 5.0 version for Android, YouTube 2.0 for iOS brings with it a completely revamped user interface and some awesome new features. The highlight of the new application, aside from the update UI, is the ability to continue watching a view while you search for the next one. All you have to do…

Nike FuelBand developer Jay Blahnik goes to Apple

Jay Blahnik, a former Nike employee that worked on the Nike FuelBand, is now headed to Apple. If this doesn’t add a lot of weight to the iWatch rumors, I’m not quite sure what else could other than an announcement by Apple. The FuelBand, for those of you that don’t know, is a fitness tracking band that you wear around your wrist; similar to a watch. It…

EA: Plants vs. Zombies 2 saw 16 million downloads, update in the works

For those of you that downloaded Plants vs. Zombies 2 after its release last week, you were definitely not alone. The app was downloaded over 16 million times according to EA, and this can probably be attributed to its “freemium” nature. According to a press release from the company, PvZ 2 has seen over 25 million hours of gameplay, 4 billion plants…
