If you've ever been in a situation where you needed to draw up a floor plan or recreate a room's dimensions, then you'll appreciate what RoomScan can do for you. This deceptively simple iOS app can do all that for you and all you need to do is tap on the walls.
This week Apple has made a couple of moves in their iPad and iPhone collections available on the market that might not make a lot of sense to consumers. For the iPhone, they’ve added an iPhone 5c that works with 8GB of internal storage space - the previous smallest model was 16GB. For the iPad, they’ve gotten rid of the iPad 2 (the last model available with a 30-pin connector), replacing it with the iPad 4 (aka iPad with Retina Display and Lightning connector).
The latest update of the LINE chat app has added a system in which users will be able to make use of free voice calls inside their own countries and abroad. This "LINE Call" system works inside a number of countries - Columbia, The Philippines, Spain, Japan, Mexico, Thailand, Peru, and the United States, and will be available to users who have registered their mobile phone number with the service. Which calls are free and which are available for "cheap domestic and international calls" is not yet entirely clear.
There’s a new ecosystem within iOS being rumored this season which includes a health-centered aim for the next generation of iPhones. While this "Healthbook" will work with the iPhone 5s as well, the big dish will be inside iOS 8 for the next generation. These details come from 9to5Mac where Mark Gurman appears to have the full run-down. This update will likely be appearing before the end of 2014.
We might be at death’s door for the iPhone 4S, ladies and gentlemen, as word has been spread that the iPhone 5c will be released in an 8GB edition. At that point, where does the market stand on a smaller, but same-sized internal storage smartphone sold by the same manufacturer? It’s time to pack up the old protective cases and screen protectors, it’s 4-inches from here on out.
The rumor mill for the next iPhone being called the iPhone 6 is in full swing. It hasn't been that long since the iPhone 5S launched, but the rumblings about the next version of the iPhone are coming at a fast pace. So far, one common rumor is suggesting that the new iPhone will have a sapphire glass screen.
There have been a number of games over the years that allow the player to build up cities and other constructs based on whatever they can dream up. Games like SimCity are what most of us think of when it comes to titles that let you decided what things look like in the game. Another game of this sort that has been around for a while is RollerCoaster Tycoon.
Apple, at least under Jobs' regime, almost never or only so rarely grants interviews, so when it gave Sunday Times the probably once in a lifetime chance to talk to Jonathan Ive, not even the sudden and almost inexplicable downpour in California will stop it. Thanks to that, we are able to get some insight into the thoughts of the man who designed some of the world's most iconic products.
Supposing your on a US Airways flight and have the United Airways app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch at the end of 2014, you’ll be able to connect with some content while 10,000 feet above the ground. This initiative is one United Airlines first announced back on February 6th, but today it’s gaining steam thanks to a well-placed PR punch.
A number of screenshots taken with an iPhone have leaked additional verification of several future apps for the platform this morning. These shots were taken by Weibo microblogger TD Beta, a leakster who has (in general) provided well-sourced content in the past. In general, the takeaway here is not that we’re seeing finalized icon delivery, but that these apps exist.
