So the big news from this years WWDC is unsurprisingly the drastically redesigned iOS 7. I’ve decided to have my first impressions sit for a bit before concluding any opinions. After spending a few days with it here we go. First off this is a very very early version and as such has a lot […]

Pretty amazing to see what HTML5 apps are capable of these days: Worth a look see.

The first time one of these hidden iPhone feature type articles actually lists tips I never knew about… all three actually. Guarantee you’ll learn at least one new thing. My favorite is holding the back arrow in Safari to bring up your browsing history. Epic. Worth a read.


The most talked about Android phone these days, the Nexus 4 has no LTE support, a non-removable battery, maxes out at 16 GB of storage, has no SD card slot and a glass front and back. I’m sure it’ll sell like hot cakes too. Hey better late than never Google… right?

Obviously there’s a lot of negativity associated with the new maps on iOS 6 and your experience with it will vary greatly depending on where you are located. However I thought I’d just chime in that at least where I am located I’ve had nothing but excellent results when it comes to turn-by-turn directions. I’ve […]

Early this morning my UPS delivery man congratulated me on the arrival of my iPhone 5. My first thought as soon as the box was open was just how light the iPhone 5 is. It’s only surprising because while it’s obviously taller in size than what we’re used to, it’s expected to come off hefty. […]

The Economist released their iPad and iPhone apps that allow you to subscribe and read to their publication. The iPad app is where it really shines. The interface is clean and easy to navigate. This is finally magazine subscriptions on the iPad done right. Very nicely done.  

Ecamm today announced a new application that allows virtually any printer you can connect to your Mac to be shared via Apple’s new soon to be released iOS 4.2 feature AirPrint. Called Printopia, the software is nicely integrated into your System Preferences and quietly shares any printer you choose to wirelessly. Once enabled you can […]

So there’s a lot of hubbub about the cool new features in the upcoming iOS 4.2 release that will unify the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad with a single consistent OS. Among the notable new features are AirPlay and AirPrint which are all well and good but my favorite new feature is actually “Find In […]
