    Those who prefer Android and who also use the Amazon Appstore are familiar with the giant's free "app of the day" offering where they give away paid applications for free every day. It looks like those who prefer Apple's products will also benefit from something similar, or at least that's what we think (hope) after seeing one of App Store's tweets. The tweet itself is pretty self explanatory and even uses the #FreeAppoftheWeek hashtag. Cut the Rope: Experiments seems to be given away for free as part of the program and there's also a huge "App of the Week" banner on the iTunes pages for ...

    Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero was appointed to oversee settlement talks between Apple and Samsung -- ordered by Judge Lucy Koh from the United States District Court for the Northern District of California -- over the course of two days on Monday and Tuesday, May 21 and 22. This might come as no surprise to you but the two giants have not reached an agreement, according to reports. Samsung's CEO Choi Gee-sung and Head of the firm’s Mobile Division, Shin Jong-kyun, were present at the meeting on behalf of the South Korean manufacturer and Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, represented the ...

    iOS is not perfect. Those who blindly defend it are either new to the smartphone market or simply want to troll their way around reality. After we've talked about the things that frustrate some of us about Windows Phone and Android, it's time to talk about Cupertino's favorite baby. I come from a time when Multi-tasking wasn't considered a feature, since it didn't even make sense to release an OS that didn't offer a way to work around apps. I'm not sure how Apple was able to sell so many iPhones and iPads when they couldn't do this, but I stayed away from them until they figured that out. ...

    This is probably not the best way to sit down at the table, start negotiations, and try to settle -- as the court ordered Apple and Samsung for May 21 and 22; the Cupertino company has filed for an immediate U.S. preliminary injunction against Samsung and its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, having a court order at its base recognizing Apple's design patent (in appeal). Samsung had to slightly redesign the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany -- because of Apple's design patent infringement claim -- where you can find the Galaxy Tab 10.1N (with the speakers being placed on the bezel to the left and right of ...

    If you recently fired up the Facebook application on your iPhone or Android-powered device you probably noticed that there are some welcome changes. The overall design has been tweaked for better display and readability and the new changes affect both the ways posts are displayed as well as images. First of all photos being displayed are up to three times larger, depending on their original size. Couple that together with the fact that posts will now entirely fill your screen, from edge to edge, when viewing and you've got a rather fresh look. In addition, browsing Facebook with the ...

    Back in early April, we got a close-up look at the silicon behind Apple's latest generation of A5 chips, then just arriving in the new AppleTV refresh. Decapping the processor revealed some very interesting details, like how this supposedly single-core variant of the A5 was a dual-core component with one side disabled, or how Apple's chip was now being produced on a 32-nanometer Samsung process. It turned out these new chips were also the same ones being used in the WiFi-only iPad 2 as it's being currently manufactured, except with both cores switched-on. Compared to the 45nm chip ...

    Skype is an excellent way to keep in touch with your friends, co-workers and family especially if you're using it over WiFi or an unlimited data plan, resulting in free Skype-to-Skype calls. If you have the application installed on your iOS device, you might want to update to the latest version. Open up the iTunes App Store on your iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, or iPad and install the refresh. It brings a new feature: the ability to move own video preview when in a call. Additionally, the app now auto restarts if unexpectedly shut down, accessibility has been improved, same goes for ...

    While Spotify on the iPhone was recently updated with 320kbps streaming option and some other improvements in the fresh 0.4.24 version, users on Android are eagerly waiting for a "major" update -- or any update, really -- and so do iPad users. Of course you can run the iPhone app on your iPad but that's half the experience and if you're a music enthusiast and have an iPad, this should be something to get you through the (already long) waiting. A Swedish engineer posted the above image to Instagram, claiming that it is a beta version of Spotify's official iPad app. The description was "It's ...

    Leading-up to Apple's announcement of the 2012 iPad, there was plenty of speculation flying around about just what processor might find itself at the heart of the tablet. Coming off the dual-core A5, there were rumors galore that Apple's next system-on-a-chip would be something like a quad-core A6. Instead, we ended up with the tweaked A5X dual-core component. Today we take a look at some very close-up analysis of one of Apple's latest chips, and hopefully it can give us some insight into what directions Apple may be headed in for the next iPhone's processor. What you're looking at above ...

    Those who are Apple fans, or simply follow the tech industry, need no introduction when it comes to John Sculley, Apple's former CEO who decided to come on-board as CEO and help the late Steve Jobs "change the world" instead of selling "sugar water" for the rest of his life while at PepsiCo. In an interview with The Economic Times, the ex-CEO, now 73, said that "Apple has an extraordinary executive team" and he sees "many good years ahead" for the Cupertino-based company. With regards to the tablet market, Sculley, an iPad user himself, said that "the only serious tablet competitor in ...

    If you've never owned a tablet, there's no device that we could recommend more than Apple's New iPad. We rarely give any product we review a full score of 5 stars out of 5, so there's no mistaking that this is simply one of the best tablets you can purchase at the moment. No product is perfect though, and Apple's past versions of the iPad are also good choices to pick from. With Apple's recent decision to sell their New iPad along with last year's iPad 2, and with the ease that you can find the First-Gen iPad on eBay for a good price, choices can become complicated for any first-time ...

    Regardless if you are using a PC or a Mac, if you have an iPhone or an iPad, you occasionally need to use Apple's iTunes application to sync and update software (if you manage your libraries with something else). A new version of iTunes has been released and, as usual, it is always good to have the latest one installed. It "fixes several issues that may cause iTunes to unexpectedly quit while playing videos, changing artwork size in Grid view, and syncing photos to devices". Additionally, it "addresses an issue where some iTunes interface elements are incorrectly described by VoiceOver and ...

    When Apple introduced the New iPad on the 7th of March they also unveiled iPhoto for both the iPad and the iPhone, an application which allows you to browse, edit and share photos from your tablet or phone. According to unofficial information allegedly coming from Apple, the Cupertino company's new application hit the 1 million user mark in less than ten days -- probably by March 17. The numbers represent unique users and not downloads and, given the fact that the app goes for $4.99 in the iTunes App Store, the figures are quite enchanting. If you want to experience gestures on pictures ...
