A big social media fail for one of Apple's bitterest rivals (hahaha) and some coming soon products from one of Apple's previous bitterest rivals. It's all about peace, love, understanding, and schadenfreude in this week's best of news stories. Plus, if you haven't updated your devices to iOS 7.1 what are you waiting for?
It's a very Readdle edition of Price Drop. Sure, other big names like Electronic Arts have big sales on their games, but Readdle puts the PRO in Productivity Suite. Their apps have saved our lives and saved us tons of cash since the very first one we ever bought. In honor of their 6th birthday, they're having a killer sale. Oh, don't worry, we have more than just productivity apps on sale this week, but first, much respect.
Just like you've gotta eat, iPhone and iPad users gotta use apps, but some people don’t venture too far past the packed-in options or maybe whatever’s at the top of the App Store charts. But maybe you’re settling for a plain old cake donut when you could have a mouth-watering strawberry and Nutella crepe — and a much better experience. We set out to replace your everyday apps, the workhorses you rely on. Sample from this buffet, and you won’t save any calories, but you will have an even better time using your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Well, this is the last weekend you have to relax and enjoy yourself before the ridiculous onslaught of holiday shopping and events consumes your every waking minute with errands and shopping and parties and decorating and trying to figure out how to wrap gifts and what to get and oh my we're getting a little excited (and a little exhausted) just thinking about it. Well, here's the week that was. Get at it. (Note, not Santa to our right.)
Are you a visually creative person? Because if you are, then this week's Price Drop is going to knock your socks off. That's not all we've got, but people, we have a ton of camera apps. Or maybe you're more musically inclined? Well, we've got something for you too, so come on board and let's get this art train a-rollin'!
With iOS 5, iPhone users finally have native photo editing. But Apple kept things simple, so all you get is rotate, crop, red eye removal, and auto-enhance doing its thing. Prior to this small selection there was nothing, so the App Store is packed full of alternate cameras and photo editing apps for your shutterbug delights.
It seems like every day we’re reminded about the power we hold in the palm of our hands -- in this case, it’s the iPhone, which has made the leap from being the favorite of fashion photographers to snapping the cover art for singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata’s latest album.
If you use the iPhone camera at all, you know tapping the screen to take a picture can be a royal pain, especially if you're trying to take a self-portrait. The iPhone 4's front facing camera doesn't make things that much better, since photos are lower resolution. And really, tapping the touch screen to capture is just not very ergonomic. Well, against Apple's better judgement, TapTapTap's Camera+ app provides us with a solution.
