AntiCrop for iPhone, iPad 2 expands photos beyond their borders

AntiCrop for iPhone, iPad 2 expands photos beyond their borders

When you take a photo at the wrong angle on a camera, you've got no choice but to either cut off all the edges and get a smaller photo or just take it again altogether - but with AntiCrop for iPhone and iPad 2, that process has been automated and magically moved forward. What this application does is, should you want to turn your photo on its side, to fill in the blank spots that are then created with an intelligent duplication process. While you could technically do this yourself with a 3rd party tool like Photoshop, this is just so simple it's undeniable!

iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak incoming with Corona A5 tool

iPhone 4S and iPad 2 jailbreak incoming with Corona A5 tool

A jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 is almost ready for release, arch-iOS hackers the iPhone Dev Team have announced, with only streamlining the user-experience of the "Corona A5 jailbreak" left to complete. Until now, the Apple A5-based products have been stubbornly resistant to hacking attempts, Apple changing its approach in the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S so as to give users wanting to install unofficial software more trouble than before. That time of frustration, though, is nearly through.

iPad 2S up next, iPad 3 pushed back

iPad 2S up next, iPad 3 pushed back

When it comes to Apple, there's only one thing you can guess on releases: you never ever quite know what you're going to get or what it'll be called - thats why when the name iPad 2S popped up on the airwaves this afternoon, the wheels in our minds started spinning furiously. This is not the first time we've seen the "S" naming scheme appear on an Apple product, nor will it be the last time, but here it certainly does appear to be the first iPad to attain the partial step between full refreshes in models. It's a Chinese case maker by the name of Chinee that appears to have spilled the beans here, showing off a case that looks not unlike one that would fit fine on an iPad 2, but with an additional letter that's oh-so-telling in the title.

iPad 3 reveal tipped for early Feb; iPad 2 to remain on sale

Apple will hold an iPad 3 launch event in early February, according to new rumors, where the third-gen tablet expected to debut a 9.7-inch Retina Display will be shown off for the first time. The press event next month, so Macotakara's Asian supply chain sources and "a source in the United States" claim, will precede the commercial launch of the new iPad in early March. Meanwhile, there are also indications that Apple will keep the existing iPad 2 on sale alongside its new model.

iPad 2 : an Apple 2011 Retrospective

iPad 2 : an Apple 2011 Retrospective

The past 365 days have been, without a doubt, the Year of the iPad 2, and as you're about to see, this includes more than just great sales and undeniable attention from both consumers and developers the same. It all started in March as the Apple iPad 2 went on sale. Of course we pre-struck with an early What should I get guide and a few reviews of the device itself by our head writers. We had rather interesting (and telling) results in a poll from March asking if people would be buying an iPad 2, and an article also all the way back in March foretold much on how it's so hard to compete with the iPad. Then the new year brought fourth an event of giant proportions. Behold the 2011 year in the most omnipotent tablet on the market.

Google Currents iPad 2 Review

Google Currents iPad 2 Review

This week Google Currents was released, a project made for the two biggest mobile platforms on the planet by Google in collaboration with a variety of launch partners including your favorite tech and gadget blog SlashGear - what we've got for you here is a closer look at the iPad version of this application.

ASUS Transformer Prime vs iPad 2, side by side gaming

ASUS Transformer Prime vs iPad 2, side by side gaming

One of the most surprising aspects of our hands-on series with the ASUS Transformer Prime thus far has been the single benchmark in which the iPad 2 did better graphically than this quad-core powerhouse, as seen in our first comparison between the two - but check out a couple of videos that should very well convince you that there's no perfect clarity in a set of benchmarks performed on machines with two very different sets of innards. What we've got here is the Prime and the iPad 2 running two games side-by side at the same time: first Riptide GP, then Shadowgun, both games that show the real power of dual-core and up gaming - behold the smoothness!

ASUS Transformer Prime vs iPad 2, benchmark tests

ASUS Transformer Prime vs iPad 2, benchmark tests

There's so very much to say about a couple of devices when you're comparing them, especially two titans like the iPad 2 and the Asus Transformer Prime, but what we're going to do here is get down to some basics - namely some benchmark tests that work just as well on both iOS and Android - so that we can have a clear view of how the two work in relation to one another. We've got a few tests lined up here, first of all SunSpider, an internet browser-based JavaScript benchmark which tests how well your internet is going to work based on the machine more than your connection. Next there's Rightware's BrowserMark, another test that sits in the internet browser. Finally there's GLBenchmark 2.1 which is one of the only apps that works on both iOS and Android outside of the browser, and frames per second across the screen is what it works with.

iPad 2 is holiday must-have

iPad 2 is holiday must-have

Finding something the whole family can agree on at Christmas is usually a nightmare, but it seems as long as what's in giftwrap is rectangular, has a 9.7-inch touchscreen and an Apple logo, then kids, teenagers and adults will be happy. Market researchers Nielsen claim Apple's iPad is the most coveted gadget, rating the highest for buying-interest over the next six months in both the 6-12 and 13+ brackets. Non-Apple tablets, meanwhile, languish behind in fifth place.
