Double tap the Home button to bring up the iOS Task Manager and then locate the app you want to force to quit. Tap and hold the icon for that app until it begins to wiggle. A red circle will appear with a white minus sign in the center superimposed over the icon. Tap the red circle and iOS will force the app to quit.
If you are using Google Maps, a double tap with one finger zooms in a level, a single tap with two fingers zooms out a level and a double tap with three fingers zooms out a lot further. Launch the Maps app and try this for yourself. If you experiment with it you'll get use to it fairly quickly.
We generally update our iOS apps on a regular basis via iTunes or wirelessly over the air. But, one problem with the latter method is that apps over 20 MB will only download over-the-air when you have a Wi-Fi connection. Usually, when we start these downloads, there's the inevitability we'll leave the Wi-Fi coverage area and will need to stop the app download temporarily. Here's how: locate the app that is currently downloading and you'll see a progress bar on the icon. Simply tap the icon before the download is completed and the icon will display the word "paused. " It will not start again until you tap it.
Nike + iPod is available for iPhone 3G and later users, as well as iPod touch 2nd generation or later users. But, you won't be able to see the app until you activate it in the Settings app. And before you do so, make sure to purchase the sensor or remote so that you'll be able to use the App.
iOS games don't get a whole lot more unique than 2009's Hysteria Project. The game was essentially an indie horror movie, but with interactive video game elements tossed in. You play a role in a low-budget horror film, helping the main character along the way. For a video game its fairly low-involvement, but it's a really neat experience nonetheless. Now the story continues as the sequel is released.
In yet another display of the massive cultural power of popular iPhone apps, Universal Pictures announced today that they are joining forces with Lima Sky to create new, branded content for Doodle Jump. From the sound of things this may be an ongoing arrangement, but right now it's Universal's upcoming Easter kid's flick, Hop, that is getting integrated with Doodle Jump.
Although there’s been plenty of gloom and doom forecast for AT&T when they lose iPhone exclusivity next month, the reality is something else indeed -- a full 90 percent of those customers are still tied to contracts which will be costly to get out of.
Although there’s little doubt that Apple is flying high with the iPhone, they’re losing a bit of steam when it comes to competing as a global cell phone maker. Cupertino still ranks in the top five for a second quarter in a row, but slipped from fourth to fifth place in the last quarter.
