Pokemon GO failed us all

Pokemon GO failed us all

Today I'm going to tell you why Pokemon GO is a game of diminishing returns. At the beginning, Pokemon GO was a great idea. Google creatives made a video showing how augmented reality might make the perfect ecosystem for a worldwide Pokemon game in which monsters could be found wandering a real world. Real battles could be fought, real encounters would happen, and capturing new Pokemon would be super fun. That only sort of happened.

New iPad may have this strange feature in 2018

New iPad may have this strange feature in 2018

Apple released plans today for a tablet which had a very strange, but not entirely unheard of, backside feature. We've seen devices that have the ability to make use of a back-facing touch panel before, but never exactly like this. If this new set of features makes their way to the next iPad, it'll be a rather interesting device indeed.

Civilization VI for iPad is here, but you won’t buy it

Civilization VI for iPad is here, but you won’t buy it

Civilization VI - the latest game in the immensely popular Civilization series and one of our best games of 2016 - is arriving on iPad today. This appears to be a port of the full game, which will be exciting for mobile gamers who are used to pared back mobile ports of console and PC games. The price Aspyr Media and 2K Games are asking for, on the other hand, likely won't be very exciting.

Pokemon GO AR+ update gives iPhone Trainers an edge

Pokemon GO AR+ update gives iPhone Trainers an edge

Pokemon GO is adopting Apple's ARKit, with an incoming update to the augmented reality game promising a much better experience on iPhone and iPad. The new Pokemon GO AR+ feature will be exclusive to Apple's devices - since, of course, Apple isn't making ARKit available for other platforms such as Android - and promises more accurate positioning and perspective of Pokemon encountered in the encounter mode. They'll also scale more accurately in size.

Apple now has YouTube videos for basic support tips

Apple now has YouTube videos for basic support tips

Apple has always prided itself on having personable customer support staff that add a human touch to their service. As nice as that might sound, it doesn’t scale well with the growing number of Apple users. It took to Twitter last year as a sort of compromise that can fit in 140, now 280 characters. Now it is hopping on YouTube to provide moving pictures instructions on some of the most burning support questions users have, like how to take screenshots on an iPhone or how to print from an iPad.

Two of three Cydia jailbreaking app sources have shut down

Two of three Cydia jailbreaking app sources have shut down

Once upon a time, jailbreaking an iPhone or iPad was really the only way for users to truly get the best experience out of their expensive devices. Fast-forward 10 years later, jailbreaking iOS devices feels almost like a distant memory. That memory might be fast fading too, as ModMy and ZodTTD/MacCiti shut down, leaving BigBoss as the last remaining major source of apps, themes, and files for jailbroken iPhones and iPads. This, in turn, could mark the slow decline and decay of the jailbreaking community.

If the 2018 iPad with Face ID looks this good, I’m sold

If the 2018 iPad with Face ID looks this good, I’m sold

Rumors of a new iPad have begun, and if the images we've got here are any indication, Apple's next slate will be a masterpiece. We've seen our fair share of iPhone concepts in the past from a wide variety of creators - but not so much on the iPad - save the months leading up to the iPad Pro. This is probably largely because of the device's relative lack of need for change over the past half-decade.

Today’s world runs on code, be it on the smartphone you’re using to read this or the hidden servers that make the Web go round.
