iOS 7 Preview: Messages [VID]

If you’re anything like me, Messages is by far your most used application. Because of that, I was a bit apprehensive about the changes Apple made to the Messages app in iOS 7. However, after using the app, I’m happy to report that my worries were largely unfounded. That being said, there is certainly an adjustment period. In the same way that it took my…

Looking back at my iOS 7 wish list: Did I get what I wanted?

A little while back I wrote a “7 things I want to see in iOS 7″ article.

iOS 7 features not only a massive new interface design, but under the hood some 1,500 new changes have been made which will only prove to make developers more creative and give them the ability to do even more with their apps.
