iOS 8.3 Lets You Download Free Apps Without Entering Your Password

3/24/2015 05:02:00 PM - 0 comments

There is a great new feature that has been discovered in iOS 8.3. This little addition means that you will have the option of configuring how often the App Store or the iTunes Store asks you for your password. This is only an option for people making purchases and it could turn out to be a great option. How many times do you get frustrated with having to keep entering your password when buying something? Well with this little addition that has been found with iOS 8.3, this could be a thing of the past.

There is also a new option available whereby users can disable password requirements completely for any free downloads that they may want to buy. The option to change how often a password is required isn't really all that new, but its move to a new menu inside the App Store settings is a notable one. In these settings you will find a new choice that you can make whereby you can disable passwords for free downloads. This is something that we know a lot of users are going to find very useful and it is a setting that most people are really going to welcome.

At the moment, it looks as if the appearance of this option depends on the App Store you are using. This could suggest that this may be something that is available in some countries but not in others. This could also change as the betas roll on, but is also likely that Apple is adapting its stance on the requirement of a password for free downloads depending on its audience.

We don't know when iOS 8.3 is going to release and there hasn't been much talk about it. The big release so far has been iOS 8.2 with the added Apple Watch support so we could in fact see iOS 8.3 being a release that is a little bit quieter. That is unless something particularly exciting gets added in a later beta that is really worth talking about. We do feel that this little addition that we have discussed today in relation to passwords is something that is worth talking about and if we find anything else we will be sure to let you know.

Other additions to iOS 8.3 that we already know about are the new Siri ability to automatically use the speakerphone and the updated emoji. That's all we know of note so far but as the betas are released we will be keeping you updating on any gems that we find.


Apple’s Free App Of The Week Is Dark Echo

3/20/2015 01:16:00 PM - 0 comments

We love Apple's Free App of the Week deal and this week is no different. This week's app is Dark Echo, a sound-based horror game that only made its debut on iOS last month. Some of the app that end up being the App of the Week can in fact be a little stale and not that great, but Dark Echo is definitely one that you will want to download now while you can and if you keep reading this post we will tell you why.

Normally priced at $1.99, Dark Echo is free this week. The game uses sound in a way that we haven't see before. If you like atmospheric games then you will love this and it will take things to a whole new level. There are 80 different levels to play through in this title, so you will be getting plenty of entertainment value if you can manage to find your way around in the dark.

In this game you are left to explore the world using nothing but sound, but the catch is that the same sound is also attracting something very unpleasant to you too. The game description says it so much better: “Trapped in darkness, you must use visualized sound to guide your way through threatening environments. The sounds you create will bounce off obstacles, revealing the shape of the surrounding world. It won't be long before your only way of sensing the world attracts a horrifying evil the devours both sound and souls.” Sounds terrifying doesn't it, and in today's gaming world this is something that you will definitely enjoy. It's different too.

Dark Echo has been received really well so far even at full price, and now that it's free, it should be a game that is part of your iOS collection. One of the great things about this game is that it doesn't feature and in-app purchases, which isn't always the case when games are part of the App of the Week promotion. If you download Dark Echo now, you get a completely free game with nothing whatsoever to buy. It is available right now on the App Store so be sure to check it out today while you still can.


Apple Watch Receives FCC Clearance And Is All Set For Sale

3/18/2015 02:32:00 PM - 0 comments

As you already know, the Apple Watch is to go on sale next month. We have just received word that the device has now received FCC clearance and it is all set to hit the retail stores in the United States next month. Pre-orders are to begin on the 11th of April with shipping commencing on the 24th of April.

All electronic devices must now pass through the FCC to ensure that they comply with every communication standard set forth by the regulating authority. The Apple Watch has now received the green stamp of approval giving us a clear signal that this latest Apple device is on track to complete their plans to sell their first ever wearable.

Now that the Apple Watch has passed through the FCC doesn't necessarily mean that it is ready for sale worldwide. Apple still has to get approval from a number of different regulating authorities before getting the official thumbs up for sale in different countries. Apple made things clear on their website regarding their FCC approval which said that: this devices has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained.

Now that FCC approval has been received, the above statement has been removed from the website. The Apple Watch is all set to now go on pre-order on the 10th of April with retail availability on the 24th of April. You can now officially get excited about getting your hands on the first Apple wearable device.


Apple Watch Has 8GB Of Internal Storage But Only 2GB Is User Accessible

3/12/2015 01:16:00 PM - 0 comments

The Apple Watch is going to come with 8GB of storage which sounds great right? That's the good news, the bad news is that not all of this storage is user accessible. A good chunk of this space is going to be taken up by the Watch OS so what do users get? Well you are actually only going to get 2GB of storage. Want to know why? Keep reading.

Normally 2GB of storage would be laughable, but for a smartwatch that is actually built to dance in tune to the iPhone with the occasional untethered use, the storage size is enough. As noted by 9to5Mac, the first models of the Apple Watch were also carrying 8GB of storage and the watch models that will be available for shipping on the 24th of April will also have the same storage size. It doesn't matter what Apple Watch Edition you go for, they will all have the same storage.

The 2GB of storage space that is user accessible will be allocated to storing music tracks and a mere 75MB is going to be given for photos. This isn't a bad deal when you consider that the Apple Watch is not supposed to be a replacement for your iPhone and the ability to carry over 200 quality music tracks could be just perfect for your morning job or exercise routine. You do have 75MB for photos but you probably won't need this because you have your iPhone for this. Apple only want you to store your most treasured pictures on your Watch and this is considered to be the most personal device ever. The photos are going to be resized when transferred to the Apple Watch so you should be able to hold around 100 pictures.

One thing we are all aware of, is the fact that iOS 8 was the chunkiest release of Apple's mobile OS, but Watch OS cannot possible be taking up all 6GB out of the 8GB storage. After all, that 75% of the space. There are internal apps, and the need for storing caches and other temporary files that are required to ensure that the Watch OS runs as smoothly and fluidly as iOS and OS X. It has also been reported that once the native SDK for the Watch OS arrives as announced by Apple, all this empty space will be used for storing application binaries and resources.

So there you have it, if you thought you were getting a smartwatch with 8GB of storage, you were mistaken. What you are getting is a smartwatch with 8GB of internal storage and 2GB of user accessible storage. Will this put you off getting an Apple Watch? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6: Are They Too Similar?

3/03/2015 02:09:00 PM - 0 comments

It was a big day for Samsung as they announced two new smartphones at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. These two new phones have caused quite a stir with many claiming that Samsung have just copied Apple. Below we have the details so that you can make up your own mind.

Samsung have announced the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge which are both identical except that the Edge has a curved screen towards the left and right edges. The phones are lovely to look at but what has been mentioned is that they look like a rip off of Apple iPhone 6. The phones are very similar right the way down to the iPhone's antenna lines. Looking at the bottom of the Galaxy S6 shows what at a first glance could be an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 6 Plus, even down to the speaker placement. Samsung used to have their speaker on the back but with the redesign of the Galaxy S6 this couldn't happen.

The new Galaxy S6 has a new glass back that is similar to what the iPhone 4 had. In another big twist and in a very iPhone way, the new Galaxy S6 doesn't have a removable battery or expandable memory. There is a protruding camera on the back and the back cover doesn't come off. Waterproofing that was a great feature of previous Galaxy models has also been ditched in favor of this new premium design. The new fingerprint sensor works very like the Apple Touch ID where you now just have to touch your finger to register the fingerprint as opposed to swiping on the Galaxy S5. Add to all of this the fact that Samsung have implemented their own mobile payment system called Samsung Pay and these new phones really do seem very similar to the iPhone 6.

According to some reports, and images are available on the web to confirm all of this, Apple's EarPods have seen their design being mimicked with the new Samsung phones coming with earphones that look very familiar.

We all know that Apple and Samsung have a long history of battling and legal issues and these latest announcements could see even more court cases ensuing. On the other side of all this though it just goes to show that technology that works is always popular and there are always going to be similar products and improvements that are copied and made better. What do you think of the new model Samsung Galaxy S6, is it too similar to the iphone? Let us know what you think below.

Download iOS 8.3 Beta 2 For iPhone And iPad

2/24/2015 11:56:00 AM - 0 comments

Links have just been released for iOS 8.3 beta 2. This is exactly two weeks after releasing beta 1 of iOS 8.3 and we are delighted to bring you details of what is new in this post. Apple seem to be very busy in their software development department of late with plenty of updates being released with some amazing features being added each time.

A lot of people were surprised when iOS 8.3 beta arrived two weeks ago especially given that iOS 8.2 is also currently being prepared for public consumption. It is a bit of an unusual step by Apple and rumors suggest that iOS 8.4 will hit the public market before iOS 9 arrives later this year. The traditional cycle of software development and release has definitely been sped up this time around. As part of the ongoing process, iOS 8.3 beta 2 has now been released and is available for download if you are a registered developer with Apple.

As we already mentioned when beta 1 was released, iOS 8.3 has some great new features including Wireless CarPlay. CarPlay was first introduced over a year ago with iOS 7.1 and its roll-out has been a gradual process. With iOS 8.3 CarPlay will offer a wireless solution allowing users to do away with their Lightning cables.

The iCloud Photo library is no longer in beta. There is also a new emoji picker that ties in nicely with code found in OS X 10.10.3, suggesting that custom emoji characters could eventually be a thing. CloudKit and iCloud Drive have seen some improvements and Apple Pay Support for the Chinese market has also been introduced with iOS 8.3.

This second beta of iOS 8.3 includes bug fixes and minor adjustments to all the new features that are coming with the official release of this firmware. If you are a paying developer, you can install iOS 8.3 beta 2 via Software Update in Settings > General. As a developer you will probably want to grab this update more so than iOS 8.2 beta 5 which will not see any further improvements as iOS 8.2 will release sometime in March.

If you do test out this new beta and you find anything interesting, be sure to drop by and let us know in the comments below.
