When you think about it, the calendars on our iPhones aren't all that different than the ones that hang on our walls. Sure, we can set alerts for 2037 and fit much more than we can on those impossibly small squares, but for the most part, digital calendars haven't brought much new to the game. Horizon Calendar might not be a revolutionary change to mobile calendaring, but it's a good start. Its fresh, clean interface puts your events front and center with color-coded appointments and locations, and best of all, weather reports.
Aside from the iOS 6 jailbreak yesterday, Monday was generally what we in the biz refer to as a "slow news day" -- a good time to soak in some smaller stories that might otherwise have fallen between the seat cushions of rumors and bigger stories making headlines across the tech community. Won't you sit back and enjoy a handful of those crumbs with us now…?
iTunes 11 may barely be a couple of weeks old, but that doesn't mean Apple's latest media player software didn't arrive with a few bugs and quirks, but some of those have now been stomped out with the first minor update.
The Apple System Status page has received a bit of a facelift. And with the update comes the ability to see more detailed explanations of why an App Store, iCloud system, or service is experiencing an issue. Current -- and recent -- outages are now displayed on a timeline, with an explanation of those affected.
After being teased on video earlier this week, the all-new 1Password 4 for iOS made its debut in the App Store overnight, complete with a more than 50 percent discount for a limited time to celebrate its arrival.
Despite being a month late, iTunes 11 didn’t disappoint. Version 11 has been completely overhauled, reimagined from the ground up, and we love the new features. It’s fully integrated with iCloud to make it easy to find all your purchased music and videos, and all the music you have stored in iTunes Match. The new interface is a huge change from the old iTunes look and feel, but we can help you get comfortable in no time. Kick off your shoes and settle into your new digital living room. And don’t forget to turn your speakers up.
Well, if you've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of iTunes 11, the moment has finally arrived. Packed full of interesting new interface tweaks and increased iCloud support, the new iTunes is a welcome site for a service that was showing its age.
