With so many iOS apps going into the App Store each and every day, it's easy to miss cool titles you might otherwise enjoy. So let's single out a couple selections, with a new Feedly for iOS landing today while MotoHeroz is Appoday's freebie for Tuesday.
Two old favorites may be on the chopping block as the week winds to a close, with rumors flying that Twitter has ended development of its Mac app as word that Apple may be likewise killing the iPhone 3GS following the rumored debut of the iPhone 5 next Wednesday. But hey, it's Friday, so get caught up on everything you missed while sleeping before you head out for a weekend of fun.
When biking or pushing a stroller, it's very hard to reach into your pocket and pull out your iPhone while concentrating on what's going on in front of you. Nite Ize, and its Apple loving team of engineers, perfected a way for you erase this difficult task from your mobile experience.
While not diminishing the the beauty of the iPhone, Nite Ize made the Connect Case and Mobile Mount with durable, yet lightweight, material. The case is so easy to put on and remove, although after using it, I don't think I'd ever want to take it off. The engineers really took the Apple mentality of creating a case they would want to use.
The dog days of August are upon us, but there's still plenty of time to get some fun in the sun before the leaves start blowing into autumn. Apparently an awful lot of you are out there playing Temple Run, which racked up quite an impressive landmark this week. Oh, you didn't hear about it? No worries, that story -- and a handful of others -- are ready for your consumption and just a click away on this Thursday, August 2, 2012.
Companies are releasing their Q2 2012 financials left and right this week, but of course the one we're really waiting for is Apple's, which will swoop in next Tuesday, presumably ahead of the release of OS X Mountain Lion. Meanwhile, Cupertino is blasting out iTunes in the Cloud in a ton of new countries and Microsoft sets a date for Windows 8 -- all in today's recap for Thursday, July 19, 2012.
Spool, a popular DVR-like service for online video content, disappeared off the web without much notice earlier this week. Fortunately, registered users were emailed their bookmarks for safekeeping before the service shutdown, but users were left scrambling to figure out another way to get their videos in a system to watch later.
There is another alternative. Pocket, also formerly known as Read It Later, allows users to import their bookmarks into the service. While Pocket isn’t an identical replacement for Spool, it will allow you to sync your saved content to your iOS device for later viewing. Oh, and did we mention it’s free?
Read on and we'll show you how to get thost beloved Spool features with Pocket.
Although it never graduated from a beta release, the Spool app showed a lot of promise as a kind of Instapaper service which added the ability to DVR online video content for later viewing -- and now, it's gone, just like that.
After quietly lurking in the App Store, “read later” services have recently exploded in popularity. Apple even has a horse in the race with Safari’s Reading List, but one of the pioneers of the genre is Pocket (Formerly Read it Later), which recently bulked up its content-saving superpowers alongside the rebranding. Pocket saves web-based content and makes it available for later use from any web browser or via free apps for iOS and Android. No longer just for saving web articles for later reading, Pocket is also savvy enough to grab images or video as well.
There’s a lot of pocket-themed news today as “read later” service Read It Later rebrands itself as simply Pocket, and Pedia software developer Bruji finally makes a long-awaited return to the App Store with Pocketpedia 3. No, these two “pockets” don’t have anything to do with each other, but they’re cool apps that we love, so suck it up and read on for the details in our Tuesday, April 17, 2012 edition.
