DataMan Pro is the app every iPhone 6 (or 6 Plus) owner should have

DataMan Pro is the app every iPhone 6 (or 6 Plus) owner should have

DataMan isn’t new; it was launched in 2013. At the time, the app was a clever way to watch your data usage, but there were also a lot of people on legacy unlimited plans, or not using much data. With smartphone media consumption at a high point, and carriers edging us away from those precious unlimited data plans, DataMan is still as relevant as it ever was. In fact, you might need DataMan more now than you did when it was launched.

Apple Watch success isn’t sales, it’s stickiness

Apple Watch success isn’t sales, it’s stickiness

Apple isn't saying how many Apple Watches it sold in the first weekend of preorders, but arguably the bigger question is how many will still be wrapped around wrists a few months after. Unofficial estimates of sales have suggested as many as a million of the iOS wearables have been earmarked for eager owners, pushing shipping estimates into the summer at the earliest, and for many it was a case of buy first, try second since preorders opened before store demo displays did.

Apple Watch’s killer feature may be ‘learning’ your stride

If you’ve ever worn a wearable and found it inaccurate, it may have been because you’re weird. Maybe you walk strange, or run kind of goofy. It’s part of what makes you unique, though, so why try to change? In her latest blog post discussing the Apple Watch, Christy Turlington Burns noted a quirk in the Apple Watch; a quirk you might like, weird-running reader. It seems that after a few runs, Burns’ Apple Watch picked up on her strides, ‘learning’ her gait.

Apple patent points to real-time location tracking

Apple patent points to real-time location tracking

In the ‘Messages’ app on your iPhone, it’s possible to see where the people you’re chatting with are on a map, should they share their location. The feature was touted as a reason we should all have Family Sharing groups, as keeping track of each other is sometimes critical. Apple’s Find My Friends app is central for letting you know where all your contacts may be on a map, and a newly granted patent takes the location sharing much further, possibly allowing for location tracking.

Captain turns your grocery list into navigation directions on Apple Watch

If you struggle with your weekly grocery list, wandering around your local store trying to remember what items you need to buy, a reminder or list app for your smartphone is probably what you need.

Swiss Horological Smartwatches tout MotionX activity tracking

Swiss Horological Smartwatches tout MotionX activity tracking

With Apple's entry into the smartwatch market, watch makers are finally taking note that the fledgling wearable isn't just a fad that's going away any time soon. At the same time, however, they have the unique problem of staying steadfast to their calling of making "true" watches. Some have dived head on with smartwatch models. Others are taking sort of middle road. And instead of doing things completely alone, some have grouped together to bring forth what will be collectively known as the Swiss Horological Smartwatches.

iOS 8.2 released for iPhone and iPad

iOS 8.2 released for iPhone and iPad

This afternoon Apple released iOS 8.2 for iPhone and iPad, readying the masses for the Apple Watch. While the Apple Watch itself won't be out until the 10th of April, this software is prepared for your smartphone or tablet right this minute. The first thing - and perhaps most important thing beyond Apple Watch for this update is that Health App has been improved in several ways - adding the ability to select the unit of measurement for body temperature, weight, height, distance, and blood glucose, for one thing - improving stability when dealing with large amounts of data for another.

Apple Watch isn’t a wearable doctor, so what will it be?

Apple Watch isn’t a wearable doctor, so what will it be?

We may have already seen Apple Watch, but in actual fact we've hardly seen it at all: just what will we get from having the iOS wearable on our wrists? While Apple demonstrated early prototypes of the wearable back in September 2014, complete with nowhere-near-final software, the actual direction the Apple Watch has taken is, developers and project insiders say, quite different to the original intentions. In fact, while app makers aren't short of praise already, that's not to say Apple itself has made quite the timepiece it initially set out to.

Apple Watch app: spanning the grid

Apple Watch app: spanning the grid

The Apple Watch will be released this April - but before then, we'd like to get you prepared to understand how you'll be using this piece of technology. It's not difficult - Apple wouldn't create a product meant to be hard to use, of course - and its user interface is mostly going to be based on the device itself, not on your iPhone. Working with our own knowledge of the device mixed with the dive released by AppleInsider today, here's what you're going to need to know.
