When a mobile game such as Cut the Rope becomes so iconic, can its creators ever trap the genie in the bottle a second time? That's what ZeptoLab is hoping to find out with its followup title, Pudding Monsters.
It’s often a bummer to be a cell phone manufacturer catering to the United States, one of the few countries to have dual competing technologies with GSM (AT&T) and CDMA (Verizon). In the past that’s meant producing two different devices such as Apple did with the iPhone 4, but that could be a thing of that past come this fall.
After demoing the MobileMe replacement, iCloud at the World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) earlier this summer, we've been eagerly awaiting a chance to play with the service. Earlier this week, the company launched the web-based version of iCloud beta. However, there is still some confusion about how to register for this service, we’ll show you the steps required to convert your Apple ID into an iCloud-ready account.
Not happy with just updating Macs this week, Apple pushed out another beta build of iOS 5. Beta build 4 brings us one step closer to a gold master build that's expected to hit iPhones around the same time as the iPhone 5 drops. Probably, maybe in September, or late August, or whatever the rumor mill has dreamed up this week.
So what if you get iOS 5 and you're not too happy with its performance? Or what if you're on a 3GS and just can't handle the slow-downs that occur when you put the later iterations of iOS on your mobile device? Simply downgrade it.
This also works for developers who've updated their iOS devices for development purposes and want to downgrade.
The WWDC 2011 keynote is now just a memory -- but it may be a particular painful one for many third-party developers who are watching as Apple incorporates some of their functionality into the forthcoming iOS 5.
CNNMoney has a look at a report by analytics company Distimo's report that the Android Market would be larger than the iOS App Store by July. The report looked strictly at the numbers of apps, both paid and free, and based on that, drew the conclusion that more apps will be available for Android than for iOS. Based on current numbers, and the frequency of new apps being added to both stores, iOS soon won't have the largest app store (there are already more free Android apps than there are free iOS apps).
Is it that time already? Apple announced Monday morning that this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off in San Francisco on June 6, with the five-day event taking place at Moscone West as usual. So who’s excited?
Furthering the premise of easing their software into the Mac App Store, today Apple released Xcode 4 for free for registered developers, but now everyone else can purchase the development environment for Mac OS X and iOS in the Mac App Store for $4.99. The download comes in at a size of 4.24 GB, so be prepared to make some popcorn while you wait.
