You'll find that the team behind this project have been waiting for some time to put it in the hands of Apple device users while the Android version has been flipped on since August 29th. This service allows recommendations to be pushed to your iPhone just as any other notification would - telling you what's good in the area depending on where you are, physically.

Piper study: US teen iPhone popularity rises, iPad remains dominant

This this Fall 2013 season the Piper Jaffray analyst known as Gene Munster has released a report that spans several seasons into the past, covering the USA-based teen device wants and ownership in tablets and smartphones.

iPad 5 anticipation high ahead of October 22nd Apple event

There's little doubt at this point whether or not there will be an October 22nd event held by Apple that will, in turn, be the first official home for the 5th generation iPad. Seeing an original leak from AllThingsD then a simple "Yep" from the likes of The Loop's Jim Dalrymple, this event will almost certainly center on not only the newest full-sized iPad, but the 2nd generation iPad mini as well. These devices will converge on aesthetic design this time around, both appearing much more like the original iPad mini industrially than the original iPad or iPad 2.

Microsoft Office for iPad is in the pipeline, CEO Steve Ballmer has confirmed, though the software's release may not take place until 2014 when the company has a "touch first" interface for tablets.

When the redesigned iPhone 5s home button flex cable first appeared with a slightly different configuration from the cable for the iPhone 5, it was suggested to have been to make way for Touch ID.
