Since the launch of the first iPhone in 2007, iCal users have been begging for a simpler way to sync their to-do lists from iCal to their devices. It has been a little more than four years, but Apple has finally implemented a better system natively into iOS.
Reminders is an application that lets you see to-do items from iCal, Outlook, and it can even sync your lists with iCloud. To-do items can be set with due dates and even locations. Location-based reminders will send you an alert whenever you are near the destination that the item is associated with. Read on to find out how to use this helpful new app.
After installing iOS 5, you’ll notice that the entire push notification system has changed.

And that's on the desktop. In the world of iOS, we have options from the clunky to the elegant. It's just a matter of figuring out which one is which.
Everyone rejoice! After months and months -- even years -- of waiting, Facebook is finally available for the iPad. While the app developers at Facebook could have easily just ported the iPhone app over to the iPad, they have done no such thing. Facebook for iPad provides users of the popular social networking site with a significant user interface update to the iPhone version.

After all the hooplah, jabs, hype and hyperbole leading up to its launch, the Kindle Fire -- which lends itself to so many failure puns, it’s almost as if Jeff Bezos is daring us not to buy it -- is not an iPad. It’s not even an iPad attacker.
You may recall awhile back that a huge $12 billion plan was put into place in Brazil for Taiwanese manufacturer Foxconn to help meet iPad demand. According to government sources though, that deal may be "in doubt" because of faltering negotiations over tax breaks, as well as Brazil's lack of skilled labor.
Faraway has been in the works for some time, but for many, the upcoming indie game first appeared on the scene a couple months back with the release of the alluring teaser trailer included below, which shows essentially nothing of the gameplay experience, yet still hooks viewers with powerful text, audio, and imagery. Luckily, after playing numerous rounds of Steph Thirion's game at the Fantastic Arcade portion of Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas this past weekend, I can safely say that the hype built by that slick trailer is well-deserved, as the engaging constellation-creating game is a true standout on the upcoming iOS horizon.
Dutch game developer duo Vlambeer has only been making games since September of last year, but the studio has made a strong impression on fans of independent video games in that short span of time. Part of that impact has come from its games -- notably Radical Fishing and Super Crate Box, a pair of free Flash-based titles that rely on simple mechanics to deliver electric play experiences. Unfortunately, the other part comes from the notoriety of having one of their games copied by another company, which proceeded to take the idea near the top of the App Store charts -- while the studio was quietly creating its own iOS version of the original game.
