Great news, zombie lovers! The Walking Dead returns this Sunday with a whole batch of new episodes to keep us on the edge of our chairs. Now, some bad news: The actual Zombie Apocalypse could begin any day now. Are you prepared to face the onslaught of the undead? No? Don't fret: We've put together a collection of five iOS apps that'll get you off and running for your life on the right foot.
Sure, Steam's new iPhone app is still a closed beta product, but you didn't think that'd stop us from giving you a taste, did you? After using the app to spend a few quality hours chatting, reading, surfing Steam's extensive catalog for bargains, and (of course) buying a few new games, we took a break for just long enough to put together this comprehensive gallery showcasing the application's key features.
After you've taken a closer look at what the app has to offer, we're almost certain that you'll agree that for gamers, the arrival of the Steam app is long overdue and has been well worth the wait.
While we've been busy cranking out Wi-Fi hotspots, sending music and video to our Apple TVs and generally living it up wirelessly with our iOS devices, developers have been busy coding their fingers down to the bone to bring AirPlay compatibility to their applications. What's that you say? You've been too busy to check in with the iTunes App Store lately? Don't worry: Like always, Mac|Life has your back.
To make sure that AirPlay becomes a part of your glorious Mac lifestyle, we've put together a selection of seven of our favorite AirPlay compatible applications for you to use, peruse and enjoy.
Working and playing with an iPad is an immersive, singular experience. Designed to be held in two hands, cradled in a lap or propped up against a knee, the tablet is perfect for a bit of alone time: just you, your digital media and a few well-chosen apps.
But once you put your tablet down, it’s fair game for anyone else that you live with to it pick up and use. To keep what you do with your iPad private, you could password protect it, but that sort of thing just breeds mistrust and tablet envy. You might consider giving all comers free reign to tap and swipe to their heart’s content, but will they laugh or blush at your email or browser history as a result?
No one needs that kind of stress in their life. Let Mac|Life show you how to make sharing an iPad a little easier and more pleasurable for everyone with these six multi-user wonder apps.
A few months back, Adobe mentioned that they were ditching the development of Project ROME and throwing their resources into the development of applications for tablets, including iOS devices. With that in mind, you might want to consider taking a peek at what Adobe's free Photoshop Express, which was updated to version 1.5 yesterday, can do for you.
One of the most frustrating hurdles in the iOS development process is beta testing. Given that in most cases, an App can't make its way on to multiple iOS devices without first being accepted into the iTunes App Store, providing test copies of a new mobile application can be an exercise in frustration. Given this restriction, a lot of iOS apps reach consumers unpolished and in dire need of some tinker-work. Fortunately all of this may be a thing of the past, as the folks from a new service called TestFlight have stepped forward to make getting the kinks out of new iOS software a little less painful.
If you've been begging your business' IT overlords to upgrade your old Blackberry beater to some new iPhone hotness, you might soon get your wish, as Apple has sorted out a method for enterprise iOS users to create customizeable App Store filters.
With the ubiquitous presence of iPhone and iPads in the lives of Apple aficionados, one no longer even needs their trusty Mac to get online these days. Where iOS devices are concerned, there are a pair of Apple branded solutions -- MobileMe or manually syncing your device with iTunes -- that will allow intrepid internet explorers (see what we did there?), to ensure that they’ve easy access to all of the bookmarks they enjoy when using their Mac’s Safari internet browser.
But what if you prefer to a rock computer-side browser other than Safari, or refuse to spring for a MobileMe subscription? Don’t fret: the iTunes App Store has some great solutions to keep your browsing experience synchronized no matter what device you happen to be using.
While the iPad may still be selling just as fast as it was when it first hit the scene last spring, the same can't be said for magazines publishing special editions formatted for the device. According to a report from the folks at electronista, the number of people purchasing iPad periodicals has been in steep decline over the past few months.
