Apple held the lottery for this year's Worldwide Developer Conference in an effort to prevent developers from scooping up all the tickets within seconds of being made available. Judging from our Twitter feed, a number of longtime Mac and iOS developers wound up empty-handed this year, so congrats to those who managed to get in and here's to a new Apple keynote on June 2!
Sonico’s iTranslate is great for quickly converting text to other languages while on the go, but it’s less handy for actually holding a conversation with someone speaking a different tongue. Thankfully, the developer has just refreshed its companion app, which harnesses the power of voice as well. The all-new iTranslate Voice 2 has been updated stem to stern for iOS 7, headlined by universal support that allows it to run natively on the iPad for the first time. Unlike other apps touting so-called iOS 7 improvements, this major update actually delivers them on at least two fronts.
Nearly five months after the introduction of iOS 7, developers continue to play catch-up with full support for Apple's latest mobile operating system -- and when it comes to voice translation, the wait appears to be well worth it.
Here we go, the last Price Drop before the big reveal next week. We've got some lovely kids books, free music, and how your voice can do so much, including speaking a foreign language. And as always, these deals are at rock bottom prices, so let's get rocking.
The big news of the day has to be the discovery of a beta iCloud website, which has the rumor blogs grabbing up paper bags in an effort to stifle their hyperventilation. Seems as if we’ll be seeing new Reminders and Notes web apps as part of the iCloud website, but personally we’d prefer some of the old-school MobileMe settings and features to come back. Oh well, we can’t have everything -- but one thing we can have is a break for the weekend, right after you have a look at the news for this Friday, May 11, 2012.
