Developers notified of WWDC ticket lottery results

For Apple developers, one of the most exciting events of the year is the Worldwide Developers Conference, also known more popularly as WWDC. The event is the annual conference where Apple usually announces the brand new version of iOS (this year, expected to be iOS 8), and sometimes reveals new devices such as a new MacBook Air, or even give us a sneak…

Build your own WWDC Countdown app for iPhone [Code Tutorial]

WWDC dates have been announced, and you’ve seen some opinions on what may be shown there. What about a countdown? Every time Apple announces a new event date, I fire up Xcode, open my ol’ stock Countdown project code, and drop in some new images as well as the updated date and put it on my phone. I love keeping a little countdown on how long until Apple’s…

What I want to see at WWDC 2014

Apple today announced its Worldwide Developers Conference for 2014. As has become tradition, WWDC 2014 will be held at Moscone West in San Francisco and will give developers attending, and the world watching, an insight into the future of Apple’s mobile and desktop software and possibly some new hardware to get excited about.  I thought I’d put…

WWDC keynote posted on YouTube

Last week’s keynote speech from Apple during WWDC 2013 was full of many important product introductions. From the MacBook Air line, to a Mac Pro refresh, to, of course, the brand new iOS 7, Apple had an announcement for just about everyone. However up until now, the video was only available via Apple’s own website or a podcast download through iTunes….

3DBoard jailbreak tweak brings parallax effect to iOS 6

A Cydia tweak released today allows iOS 6 users running a jailbreak to get Apple’s parallax effect, unveiled in iOS 7 at WWDC yesterday. I must say that, whilst the parallax effect is a very simple feature, it actually does a bring your Home Screen to life, and certainly makes Apple’s brand new user interface much more dynamic. This 3DBoard tweak…

Head of Android “excited” to try out iOS 7

Head of Android Sundar Pichai has expressed his own thoughts on the release of iOS 7, claiming he was “excited” to try out iOS 7. Pichai became head of Android on March 13, 2013, and has been at Google since 2004. Notoriously straight-talking when it comes to iOS 7, Pichai is most likely being deadly serious. Although, there is a small chance he…

Apple announces Apple Design Awards at WWDC 2013

Apple has announced the 11 successful winners of its Apple Design Awards at WWDC 2013. Overshadowed by the colossal announcements of yesterday’s keynote, it’s very easy to forget that there are other things happening at WWDC 2013. Notably, Apple’s annual Design Awards. The awards celebrate and recognize apps that “raise the bar in design, technology, and…

iOS 7 first looks & hands on [VID]

I’ve only had the pleasure of using iOS 7 for a few hours now, but I must admit that I’m impressed. The redesign really extends to every level of the operating system – from the smallest detail (like the live clock icon) to the biggest changes (Control Center), everything feels complete, well thought out, and totally uniform. It’s still “iPhone” enough…
