Despite the gangbusters success of the Facebook iPhone app, for some reason the social networking behemoth has yet to do anything for the iPad. Sure there's a touch-optimized version of their page that works on any mobile device, but come on. That's not what we'd call a dedicated focus on the dominant tablet. Heck, they've even got something for the RIM Playbook, which only seven people actually own, while millions of iPads and iPad 2s ship with nary a peep from Zuckerberg, et al. Bizarre behavior, to be sure.
But fear not, because the App Store is crammed to the gills with Facebook apps just for you and your needs -- whether they be chatty, photography, video, or the whole package. And while you scan this gallery, you can be sure another six hundred developers are submitting Facebook related apps for approval. We can do just fine without you, Mark, just fine.
Dead Space was one of the finest iOS games we've ever played when it released back in January, and not a whole lot has changed since then. Few games have come along since then to challenge its throne. Today that just got even more difficult as EA announced a big new update to the game that will add several great additions.
As many Apple fanboys and fangirls now know, Apple did a small makeover in their stores on Sunday night, adding new sections, installing new iPad kiosks and even updating their iOS Apple Store app with some cool new features. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the changes at your local Apple Store, never fear. We’ve got you covered! We'll take you on an Apple Store outing and show you the new changes you’ll notice the next time you’re in a store, including a gallery of the newly revamped Apple Store at Haywood Mall in Greenville, South Carolina.
With every iOS device comes a slew of iOS accessories. This gallery features some of the most interesting and extravagant ones outthere, as well as a few you might actually decide to buy. Either way, they all take your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to the next level.
We don't simply hand out 5 out of 5 Editor's Choice ratings to every iOS game that comes along. It takes something pretty special to wow us like that, but Super Stickman Golf was more than up to the task. We awarded the game our coveted perfect score last week in our review.
If you want to see just how much Apple dominates the mobile video arena with its iOS platform, look no further than a new report citing the company’s devices making up 80 percent of mobile video views -- with Android coming in a distant second with the remaining 20 percent.
The Mobile Safari web browser Apple includes with every iOS device is quite fine indeed, but some simply want the freedom of choice we enjoy on desktop platforms. Now that the popular Opera Mini browser is making the leap onto the iPad, we have more choices than ever.
It appears as though the rumored retail overhaul in Apple's stores has come to fruition. The "2.0" overhaul has started in Australia, where as pictured above, the paper price sheets have been replaced with iPads covered in plexiglass.
Listen, we love gaming on the iPad. It's just that virtual controls are simply not an effective option. The best games almost always have unique control methods that don't involve pressing pretend buttons. Think Angry Birds. But Fling Joysticks are a great option for getting some enjoyment out of games that insist on using virtual controls. Now, these little wonder devices are available in Apple stores nationwide.
There’s little doubt that Apple is up to something big in its retail stores this Sunday, May 22, including a companywide daily newspaper for employees dubbed “The Daily Download,” part of a new iPad-based initiative called “RetailMe.”
