If there's one reason to continue using Twitter outside the desktop environment other than your all-consuming addition to checking updates, it's Tweetbot. The little robot bird that sits on your iPhone's display begging you to tap, showing you that using Twitter can actually be more fun on the iPhone than it is anywhere else. This app uses a selection of gestures to allow you to interact with each Tweet, has a perfectly excellent aesthetic to the entirety of it, and has customizable tabs to make your experience just what you want it to be.
Today there's been a bit of controversy surrounding the Path app for iPhone and how it gains access to your contacts without asking you permission to do so. While its customary for such requests to go down with most major apps and is required by every single app in, for example, the Android Marketplace, it's only today become an issue for Path developers. Per the public's request though, and not a moment too soon, Path's Dave Morin has let loose an apology as well as an update to the app live in the iTunes App Store now.
The folks at G-Form have brought the fury once more with a brand new case for Apple devices, this time not protecting the iPad, but the iPhone 4/4S instead, and their first death-defying test is in the hockey arena. The test you're about to see shows off the power of protection in the G-Form X Protect case as a hockey superstar takes a nice couple of cracks at it with his stick. As the video will show, this is no joke when it comes to breaking and smashing - 82 mph hits with a blunt object don't exactly fare well normally one a device like the iPhone.
The Apple iPhone 4S exclusive Siri intelligent virtual assistant feature is now responsible for 25% of searches performed on Wolfram Alpha, a computational knowledge engine developed by Wolfram Research. Siri taps Wolfram Alpha's extensive database for various functions, such as computing basic calculations and answering factual queries.
It appears that Wolfram Alpha is bringing the fury to the student base of the world with no less than a pay-per-month service that amps their already powerful question and answer service up to an equitable level for professionals. While Wikipedia may be, sadly enough, one of the main knowledge wells in the world right now for students hoping to get their answers to questions quick, Wolfram Alpha brings the curated non-crowd-sourced knowledge vault to your browser window and your Siri on the daily. As Wolfram Alpha already powers a free service and works with the iPhone 4S to provide you with Siri's go-to resource for data, they bring a $4.95 a month (or $2.99 for students) service to the market today with abilities above and beyond what they've offered in the past.
Amongst the many different brands of protectors of the displays of the Apple iPhone line there is one, just one, that provides an entire extra layer of real tempered glass - Spigen. In the Spigen GLAS.t and the Ultimate Class Screen Protector you'll find two of their solutions made entirely of glass and an ultra-thin impossible to see adhesive. Once you see how perfectly natural these bits of glass are working with the iPhone 4S, you'll wonder why you'd not tried it on before yourself.
Apple's refusal to put its Siri voice control system on the iPhone 4 is not a shameless play to persuade users to upgrade to the 4S, it's suggested, but a limitation of the Apple A5 chip found inside the newest iOS smartphone. The A5, Linley Group analyst Linley Gwennap says, was always too large simply to accommodate two Cortex A9 CPUs and a GPU, CNET reports; the extra bulk is to house an on-chip noise-reduction system sourced from specialists Audience, which revealed its deal with Apple last month.
When you switch from an Android phone over to the iPhone or vice versa, there are a few adjustments you'll have to make. The difference between the two, no matter which versions of the software you're dealing with, are much smaller than the difference between either and any other software. Windows Phone, Symbian, any number of lesser cell phones are much more difficult to switch to or from when the alternative is switching to Android or iPhone from the other. This article is but one of several in a series written by your humble narrator called "I'm switching to iPhone 4S for a week," this series having the alternate title "iPhone 4S Up Close and Personal."
Motorola demanded 2.25-percent of Apple's sales in royalty fees, in return for licensing the FRAND 3G/UMTS patent at the heart of a 2011 German infringement suit, court documentation has revealed. The offer, which Motorola was obliged to make "fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory", could amount to almost $15 on the unsubsidized price of each entry-level iPhone 4S, FOSS Patents' digging has shown, though full terms of the 2.25-percent deal are unclear.
Both iOS and Android devices will be ready and welcome to watch the Super Bowl live right here in 2012 - just so long as you've got a Verizon-based device. While the Super Bowl XLVI Live Feed does have one gigantic button sitting right at the top of all of the main screens here in this guide app, you'll need Verizon's NFL Mobile app (built in to most Verizon phones released in the past few months) to watch it. What this guide app offers is everything other than that, complete with a massively impressive 3D map of the area around and inside Lucas Oil Stadium.
Apple created a device called the iPhone so that the world could enjoy the world of smartphones with a single vision for greatness in this mobile world of ours - I don't think they ever had it pegged as the back of a beer bottle opener. That's what the folks at Spicebox have done, and done well, here with the original Intoxicase and the Intoxicase Plus. Should you want to protect your iPhone at the same time as utilizing it as a tool to bring the cool enjoyment of another cold one to your lips all day long, you're in the right place.
