Pokemon Go release date breakdown

Pokemon Go release date breakdown

Today we're having a brief look at what's possible for Pokemon GO for Android and iOS, launching on a date set within the next month. Before we go too far, we'll do some myth busting: there's been an image floating around that suggests July 6th will be the date of launch, supposedly "leaked" by IGN. That's not accurate. The image shows a feature story which will appear on Snapchat - the game will not be launching tomorrow. Instead, we've got some clues that may lead to the final date.

iOS 10 will make it easier to become an organ donor

iOS 10 will make it easier to become an organ donor

There are a number of ways to become an organ donor if you live in the US, but Apple and Donate Life America are looking to make the process even easier in iOS 10. In a joint press release today, the two organizations announced they were teaming up to bring organ donor registration to the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system. Apple will apparently be adding the ability to sign up as an organ, tissue, and eye donor to iOS 10's Health app when the OS becomes available this autumn.

Evernote alternatives : Here are five cross-platform note taking tools

Evernote alternatives : Here are five cross-platform note taking tools

Once the darling of the startup and productivity world, Evernote has suddenly found itself shunned after a series of management mishaps, workforce exodus, and business changes. For some of the remaining faithful, the latest changes in pricing and features was the straw that broke the elephant's back. Naturally, there have been a lot of other apps and services more than willing to pick up the pieces. In fact, there are dozens of them, some already famous and some still quite obscure. Here are five of the ones suited to fill in Evernote's shoes, that mostly works on any platform.

Apple rolls out animated emojis for iOS 10 beta users

Apple rolls out animated emojis for iOS 10 beta users

When iOS 10 was introduced at Apple's WWDC 2016 event last month, a number of changes and new features were introduced, but surprisingly the Messages app was one of things that given the most time and attention. It seems Apple is moving its text messaging app into the territory of Snapchat and Facebook messenger, adding not only stickers and animated emoji, but text bubble effects, handwriting, and an API for developers.

Spotify woke the Apple dragon: Here’s the result

Spotify woke the Apple dragon: Here’s the result

If Spotify thought it could put Apple on blast publicly for being "anti-competitive" and get away with it, the streaming music service was sorely mistaken. Having felt the brunt of Spotify's scathing critique about the cut the App Store takes for subscriptions like that of Spotify Premium, Apple has now responded with its own accusations that the rival service is expecting "unfair and unreasonable" preferential treatment.

Facebook Messenger rolls out improvements to chat bots

Facebook Messenger rolls out improvements to chat bots

Back in April, Facebook announced it was opening up its Messenger service with an API and tools to create chat bots. While it's still not clear just how useful mobile users are finding these bots, it's obvious that developers think they are loved — or at least love making them — as there's now over 11,000 bots available on the platform. With that much saturation, Facebook needs to be on the ball about making sure bots are organized and easy to use. Thankfully an update with that in mind has been released.

Spotify cries foul again over Apple’s anti-competitive ploy

Spotify cries foul again over Apple’s anti-competitive ploy

Apple has been known to exercise an iron hand when it comes to apps in its iTunes Store, sometimes rejecting updates or even entire apps based on what some claim to be whimsical or downright anti-competitive rules. That is the picture that Spotify is painting in a letter addressed to Apple's general counsel over Apple's recent rejection of an update to Spotify's iOS app. According to the music streaming giant, Apple cites "business model rules" as the reason for the rejection. Which is just another way of saying that it wants Spotify to reinstate in-app billing via iTunes, which would require Spotify to fork over 30% of subscription fees to Apple.

iPhone 7 detailed in black looks gorgeous

iPhone 7 detailed in black looks gorgeous

A set of iPhone 7 images have surfaced with the device coming in a deep (matte) black. These images come from Martin Hajek, an extremely skilled illustrator and 3D model-maker. He's known for taking specifications and blueprints from case-makers before the launch of products (especially Apple products) and turning them into 3D models that look so extremely realistic, it's difficult to tell the difference between what's real and what's not. These images show a rendering of the iPhone 7 (as we know it through leaks and rumors today) and the iPhone 6 or 6s.

Pokemon GO is the best game EVER: here’s why

Pokemon GO is the best game EVER: here’s why

Today is the first day I'm able to speak in public about my experience with Pokemon GO. It's been about a week and a half since I first started playing in the Field Test - very similar to the Beta most people were playing (likely identical) - and it's time to let loose. This game is fantastic. Not in the same way a visually spectacular game like Fallout 4 or DOOM are fantastic, but in a new way. A way that's not like any game I've played before. Pokemon GO is a real game-changer.

iPhone 7 Space Grey to be transformed into something darker

A new color for the iPhone will likely be introduced this year to match that of the Apple Watch tone with no companion. As it has been in the past, so too shall it be in the future: Apple's many device lines will match. Today's tip suggests that the color "Space Gray" will no longer be in operation with the iPhone 7, instead being updated or "transformed" into a darker tone, something like Space Black.

This iPhone 7 fake runs Android

This iPhone 7 fake runs Android

This morning we caught a glimpse of a device that, at first glance, looks an awful lot like a new iPhone 7 Pro. Of course Apple hasn't confirmed that device's existence, and we've not yet seen any REAL photos of said device. But this one - something about it screamed "this is actually a photo." And indeed it was. Straight from leakster Sonny Dickson came a device that's actual real metal with a (fake) Apple logo and everything - but it's still a fake. Don't be fooled.
