WhoApp lets you know who’s calling, before you answer

WhoApp lets you know who’s calling, before you answer

Whenever I get a phone call from a number I don't recognize, I do one of two things. If I'm already at my computer, I'll do a quick Google search to see if I can find some info on the caller before they go to voicemail. If I'm not at my computer, then I just don't bother answering it. However, a new app might just take all of the guesswork out of unknown callers.

Snips “Intelligent Memory” AI promises to be private and smart

Snips “Intelligent Memory” AI promises to be private and smart

Today, artificial intelligence is seen as a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it represents a bright future of possibilities the likes of Star Trek have painted on television for years. On the other hand, it also summons fears of robotic overlords hell bent on eradicating inefficient humans. But at its very core, AI is supposed to help relieve humans of mundane and repetitive tasks. Snips, a young Paris-based startup, believes in that kind of AI vision, and it is starting somewhat from the ground up with an iOS app that focuses on the first, and most important, foundation of artificial intelligence: memory.

I hate waiting around for people to show up somewhere. Sometimes they show up on time, other times I'm checking my phone for texts, wondering why they haven't shown up.

Thankfully Uber is looking out for you, and is introducing a new way to keep an eye on loved ones.

iOS 9.3.2 reportedly bricking some 9.7-inch iPad Pros

iOS 9.3.2 reportedly bricking some 9.7-inch iPad Pros

Software updates are usually made in order to fix problems, not make matters worse. But sometimes even the best laid intentions and plans can end up in a spectacular fail. That is what some owners of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro are discovering right now. After applying what seemed to be a normal iOS 9.3.2 update, they found themselves caught in an endless loop that won't even let them restore to a back up or a previous iOS version. In other words, they're left with a completely non-working tablet.

Upcoming Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is designed for mobile only

Upcoming Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is designed for mobile only

Perhaps with the exception of Record Keeper, almost all of Square Enix's Final Fantasy titles for mobile are ports of existing titles. Record Keeper, however, is more of a reunion party for the franchise's popular characters. The mobile gaming world is definitely ready for an original Final Fantasy title of its own, which is exactly what Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is offering. Unsurprisingly a hit in Japan, Square Enix is finally bringing the game to the West this summer, with pre-registrations now open for getting early bird rewards.

iPhone gets YouTube VR with “Cardboard” update

iPhone gets YouTube VR with “Cardboard” update

Google has brought on virtual reality-like viewing to the YouTube for iOS app at last, weeks and months after adding such functionality to the Android version of the app. This functionality for the YouTube app for iPhone and iPad is very similar to that of the Android version, adding a "Cardboard" icon to the app's user interface when a video is 360-degree-enabled and the device that's playing it is turned to its side (landscape mode, that is). This move extends VR functionality to iOS just days before Google's big yearly developer conference.

Google Spaces released as teamwork app for Android, iOS, and desktop

Today Google has released a brand new teamwork app and ecosystem by the name of "Spaces." Users of Google's accounts - signed up with a Gmail account, that is - will be able to take part in Google's new Spaces app. This app has the ability to create rooms or "spaces" on topics. You'll create a space based on a topic then invite users via messaging, email, social network, or "whatever way you like." We can imagine this will be used in ways both intended and beyond what Google intended in short order.

System and Security Info app banned by Apple

System and Security Info app banned by Apple

At times, the way Apple decides what apps to allow to be on the App Store and what apps it blocks seems arbitrary. Sometimes apps end up blocked or banned while there are other apps providing essentially the same functions on the store and allowed to continue operating. Apple has confused many by banning an app from a developer called Stefan Esser known as "System and Security Info."

Apple will stop deleting your songs with iTunes update next week

Apple will stop deleting your songs with iTunes update next week

For the last week and a half, there have been a growing number of complaints from Apple Music and iTunes users about locally stored music being deleted in exchange for copies available in the cloud. As James Pinkstone, whose blog post kicked off this controversy, explains, the problem (aside from removing music without explicit permission) is that there is a high chance of mis-matching or mis-identifying songs, resulting in original recordings being deleted and rare, alternate versions of songs being replaced with the widely released copies.
