We have yet to meet a person who didn't find the way text bundles are priced as anything other than completely mercenary. Seriously? Our only options are the just enough (if you use sparingly) 200 or the waaaay too much (unless you refuse speaking on the phone and only text) 1500? No middle ground, AT&T? None?
This is precisely where third party app developers have stepped into the gap. And, boy, have they. There are nearly as many texting apps as there are fart soundboards. What's a discerning customer to do? You could spend a couple days downloading and trying out what the app store has to offer, or you could sit back and let us do the work.
2011 is right around the corner, and with it has come a series of New Year-themed apps, including one from popular men’s magazine Maxim, who have teamed up with developer Elite Gudz to create the free Champagne Popper app.
After what seems like an eternity, Skype has updated their iOS app to version 3.0, bringing long-awaited two-way video calling -- and they’ve bested Apple’s own FaceTime by allowing such calls over 3G data connections.
If you own an iPhone or iPod touch with a built-in camera you probably enjoy the convenience of using the camera for both sill and video photography. We sure do, but Camera Roll can really get bloated. This can lead to longer sync times when you attach your device to iTunes.
By default iTunes will automatically sync any iPhone, iPad, iPod, or iPod touch when any of these devices is attached to your computer using a USB sync cable.

In case you hadn’t noticed, the App Store opened its doors for business again Tuesday, again serving up new releases and updates after the holiday freeze. The developers of Camera+ have shared their sales figures for the holiday, hitting a high of 78,000 on Christmas day alone.

As Apple users, we enjoy a lot of perks. Our equipment, when called upon, just works. Our software is often a joy to work with, and when we party, our devices allow us to party hard. Traditionally, Macs computers and iOS mobile devices have been far more secure than those of Windows and Android users. Sadly, if the security experts at McAfee are correct, the days of our being able to chortle in the face of viruses and malware may soon be coming to an end.
