    After two separate but very similar iterations of watchOS, Apple’s third launch expected this fall has proven to be a jump into true maturity. To be honest, before Apple announced watchOS 3 beta, my Apple Watch was sitting in a drawer. There user interface was sluggish, launch of apps was hit or miss, and a ton of the features simply made no sense, like a button dedicated for contacts only. watchOS 3 is a lot about bringing common sense to how a smartwatch should operate. The operating system has been optimized to help you keep your favorite apps in memory, provide these with background ...

    Apple’s WWDC wrapped up a hours minutes ago, and even if all we received is software, it’s hard to not admit that the changes are all worth enough to not load the Pocketnow Daily with just this as the news. Apple clearly see's itself as a software company, as many of the new updates have given a new life to products we considered dull, like in the case of the Apple Watch. Instead of offering hardware updates that would only place these products in more difficult obsolescence, today's announcements are enough to re-consider them. Watch our first impressions of WWDC 2016 as we try to ...

    Comparing Galaxy variants was pretty easy a few years ago. Each had its own little set of compromises that made the choice a a no brainer. 2016 is a very different animal, and with three great Galaxy flagships, the stakes are rather high. If we were comparing vehicles, the Galaxy S7 would be the sedan, the S7 Edge would offer a higher trim, and well, the Galaxy S7 Active is the Truck. In the past if you went Active, you’d have to put up with a certain degree of compromise over the flagship sibling, but in 2016, there’s no compromise in buying into this truck. Some claim that the Galaxy ...

    What do you call spending your honeymoon phase with a beast? I mean hey, first impressions are everything, but if there is one thing rugged phones are never apologetic about, is looks. To be fair, rugged phones were never meant to be pretty. If anything the idea is to serve a purpose, and that's to become as handy of a tool, as the drill and the wrench that you need to get a specific job done. The Galaxy S7 Active is a beast of a phone. It's padded borders hint to a product designed to take a beating, but even as commanding as it is, you'd be surprised that good looks came in the package. ...
