The holidays are always the most stressful time for me. If I could measure my holiday stress with buckets for my tears, there'd be enough water for a full-functioning well. I learned that the best way to curb my anxiety about getting everything done is to get organized and use tools that help increase efficiency. And fortunately, with the world we live in today where smartphones are our saviors, there are a heaping of apps in the iTunes App Store that can aid in getting it together. In this week's Free App Friday, I try to solve your holiday stress issues -- and, well, mine -- with a list of helpful apps.
While the game release season is finally cooling down on the PC and console side of things, iOS gaming isn’t even stopping for gas. There are so many great games on this platform that every month of the year is full of amazing releases. You don’t need to look further than this week’s games (Lunar Racer, The Sims FreePlay, and Batman Arkham City Lockdown) for proof.
It's been a dizzying week in Apple's legal adventures with Samsung finally having something go their way in the U.S. However, their battles Down Under just seem to be getting worse.
Oh, and that huge ITC ruling? That first major final decision in any of Apple’s patent battles? The one that looks to set the bar for the rest of the cases worldwide? The one that was supposed to come down yesterday? That one was postponed.
Grab some egg nog, sit back, and lets roll through the latest Law & Apple. Cue the "dun dun."
The holidays are here and you know what that means: going crazy trying to remember everyone on your Christmas card list. While Apple has made it easy for iOS users to turn their personal photos into holiday cards with the Cards app, it's still got a slim collection of templates that needs a little more polishing. Here are three free apps that basically offer the same services as the Cards app, though bear in mind that these apps do eventually charge you to send off physical greeting cards to your loved ones.
It’s a good week for iOS gaming software. Not only do we have the resurrected Xbox kinda-classic The Bard’s Tale to look forward to, but we also have word that the developer of Scribblenauts is working on a new game. But the really big news is that Infinity Blade 2 launched today. So let’s get to the updates so that we can all go slay the God King.
In this week's Best Case Scenario, I review four very interesting iPhone 4/4S cases. Two of the cases hold your credit cards, two of them are made of genuine, real cow-hide leather, and one of them is scratch-resistant. Read on to find out who, what, where, and why!
If they rewrote the movie Mean Girls for tech, you can bet that Apple would be the three mean girls and Samsung would be Lindsay Lohan's character. This week, Samsung scored a rare victory against Apple in court, and may have saved Christmas for its Galaxy device in Australia with a little last minute holiday magic.
However, the victory is not yet official. Read on to find out what Apple might do to keep its Grinch on Down Under. Also, be sure check out the amazing infographic after the cut that lays out how all this Samsung vs. Apple cat-fight started in the first place. Cue the "dun dun."
The gaming industry is about to come grinding to a cacophonous, all-encompassing halt for the next few days, but luckily we got all of the gaming news and announcements we need to hold us over until the holiday is over.
In this week's Law & Apple, the legal adventures of Apple seem to be stickier than cranberry sauce, but at least one major slice of the courtroom pie is going Cupertino's way this week. Also on the roster, HTC pins a lot of wishes, including a $300 million purchase of another company, on a set of complaints filed against Apple. It appears, this time, that Apple gets the better break of the legal wishbone.
Sit down and dig in to another week of Law & Apple. And don't be shy about going for seconds, either. It's Thanksgiving tomorrow, after all.
The smartypants who design the brains inside each of Apple’s iOS devices--the iPhone, iPad, iPhone touch, and Apple TV--have announced a new processor scheme with far-reaching implications not only for Apple’s überpopular consumer lineup, but for MacBooks, as well. And those designers aren’t Cupertinians.
