Clumsy Ninja finally hits the App Store, just a year late

Remember Clumsy Ninja? It was demoed at last year’s iPhone 5 event in order to show off the power of the 5th generation iPod touch that launched on the same day.

WhatsApp iOS 7 update shown off in video

WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps ever launched on iOS. It has millions of users, and as such, I’ve always felt the developers and designers have been resting on their laurels and not updating the look/feel/UX often enough. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great service and connects many people across the globe, but someone really needs to…

Apple purportedly testing a 4.9-inch “iPhone 6”

I’m going to make a prediction about iPhone rumors in 2014: It’s all going to be about a bigger iPhone. It’s only a couple of months since the iPhone 5s was released and we’ve already seen half a dozen reports claiming that the next iPhone will have a larger display.

Samsung claims Apple attorney made racist remark in closing arguments

Apple and Samsung just can not get along, can they. According to Bloomberg, Samsung has said that an Apple’s attorney made racist remarks during the closing arguments of the damages case, and therefore asked for a mistrial to be declared…yeah. Here is how it goes, apparently: Harold McElhinny, Apple’s attorney, spoke yesterday of his memory as a…

Google’s Newsstand app will come to iOS in 2014

Google’s new app announced today, named – get this – Newsstand, will be coming to iOS sometime in 2014. Google Play Newsstand being the full name of the service (still find it insane that it chose “Newsstand” at all), it combines both Google Play Magazines and the Currents application into one aggregated service; you know, like Apple’s Newsstand on every…

“Can the iPad replace a laptop?” Is a question many ask, and one that so far remains unanswerable as a general statement. There are far too many unique people with differing needs and use cases to say “yes” or “no” absolutely.
