Infinit brings their file transfer software to iOS & Android

Infinit brings their file transfer software to iOS & Android

Email, cloud storage links, AirDrop, NFC — file storage transfer is a pain. Though effective most of the time, those methods aren’t effective all the time. There’s a better way (I promise). Already available for OS X and Windows, the Infinit file transfer service is also going to be available for iOS and Android, starting today. With a few taps, you can take your files — any size or type — and shuffle them to other devices. The transfer doesn’t compress file sizes, and once initiated, can’t be killed by loss of signal.

Adobe Comp CC for iPad makes concept creation mobile

Adobe has announced the launch of Adobe Comp CC for the iPad, allowing such users to put together concepts for projects using their tablet. Those concepts can be for the Web, for mobile, or for printed projects, and are made using various layout and design tools that allow for a relatively refined creation. The resulting project can then be further refined using other Adobe CC tools, such as Photoshop CC and InDesign CC, to produce a final product. Adobe previewed Comp CC back in October 2014 as "Project LayUp", and as of today it is available for free on the App Store.

Rather than hopping between apps on your phone to enter the correct log-in credentials for a site, 1Password has made their offering a bit more like the desktop offering.

iPhone 6c tipped: keeping the 4-inch display legacy

Keeping with the three-tiered approach in 2015 through 2016, a leak this week appears to confirm Apple's next lowest-level iPhone, the iPhone 6c. This device would replicate the success of the iPhone 5s with a dual-flash housing while it keeps with the colorful plastic of the iPhone 5c. This device also appears to be coming with a newly expanded double-grill of holes drilled in the base, suggesting there'll be more speaker range in the near future. Of course these speakers will still be pointing downward, not forward.

Periscope for Android missing: underscoring the iPhone problem

Periscope for Android missing: underscoring the iPhone problem

There are two ways to look at the situation with Twitter's re-launch of Periscope (for iPhone only). One is a show of power - such a massive number of people use the iPhone - any number of generations of iPhone - that Twitter will develop an app that launches on that platform first, and exclusively (for a short period of time.) The other way to look at the situation is that Twitter is ignoring the first-wave early adopter crowd with Periscope, the same way competing service Meekrat still has no Android service weeks after launch.
