If you're not too smitten with the idea of paying annually for The Daily's subscription price, we've got three apps that fully endorses the Freedom of Information Act. Actually, they're merely aggregators and RSS readers, but they work for those of you who'd rather troll Reddit and sift through Gawker headlines rather than subscribe to hard news.
This weeks tips focus on learning how to get around inside of Safari a whole lot better on our favorite iOS devices. We will look at adding quick access to your favorite websites from your Home screen, tips on scrolling within Safari, and how to use the History features built into Safari to revisit websites we've been to before.
Sometimes you find out an app you've never heard of has been in the App Store top 100 for a ridiculously long time. Sometimes they’re apps that you’ve never downloaded -- none of your friends have downloaded -- nobody you know has ever even played it. We decided to put a few "classics" through the ringer and then speculate absurdly about what the true connection for these Top 100 hangers really is.
Here at Mac|Life headquarters, we believe that sharing is caring. That's right: every bit of news that we could possibly want our colleagues to be privy to, we shout it out loud from the industrial-sized soapboxes stashed away under our desks. And when we can't physically make proclamations here at the office, we do so with our Macs and iOS devices on the go. In this edition of Free App Friday, we're featuring three apps that'll help you get the word out about whatever it is you've got going on, and keep you in the know about your neighbor's agenda, too.
This week, we'll show you how to figure out how much free space is available on your iOS device, as well as ways to optimize what you've got loaded on them. We'll also show you the basics of iTunes content control and how to manage apps.
In this week’s Game Time, we scour the dungeon floor of Gameloft’s newest mainstream creation and take a look at a few loveable indies that have been making big waves in the App Store. We've even got a nifty gallery after the fact!
It is my belief that the best time to go on a winter trip is when everybody has about had it with winter trips. I'm talking about two weeks after the holidays, when all the hustle and bustle of the airports and highway traffic has been tamed by the fact that no one has any energy--or any money--to go anywhere.
So I'm out of here with my iPad, iPod touch and trusty MacBook Pro. Here are a few free apps I fired up for this occasion. I'll see you guys when I get back. Hopefully I have a tan.
In this week's Best Case Scenario, we're taking a break from the traditional, put-it-in-your-bag iPad cases and focusing on something completely different. We've got an iPad case with an added hand holster, an elastic band that straps the iPad to your knee, a stylish iPad sleeve for urban hipsters and a special iPad case that can be mounted to your wall.
There was so much news this week we don't even know where to start. Okay, that's not entirely true, but it was a super busy week. We had CES hitting on all cylinders all week and we covered that extensively, then there was the launching of the Mac App Store (and its nearly immediate hacking) which was rather exciting, and before the weekend was over we had pretty solid support for the iPhone at long last arriving at Verizon.
Wow. That's a tall order, but if anyone can bring it down to nice bite size morsels of weekly goodness, it's the dedicated Mac|Lifers who saw it all, just In Case You Missed It.
