    All images copyright Sarah Jarrett   Looking through Sarah Jarrett's gallery, it's hard to believe these images were made using only an iPhone and an iPad. From painterly landscapes and still lifes to surreal portraiture, Sarah's work is expressive and unique. While many still associate the term "mobile photography" with the occasional selfie or family photo, Sarah is a pioneer in a growing movement of people who create serious fine art on their mobile devices. We talked to Sarah about mobile photography, her images and the artistic process behind them. • Pocketnow: Tell us a bit about ...

    For most of the needs of the average user, iOS as it currently works on an iPad is close to enough. We're not saying it is, but it's rare to find anybody that's willing to invest on an iPad if it's not for content consumption. Still, Apple wants you to consider the iPad as the only computer you need, and certain rumored features that were planned to get this going are apparently going to be delayed. Just a couple of weeks ago we learned that Apple was planning to launch split-screen multitasking for iOS 8, and exclusively for the iPad. Surely this is not something new as Samsung has ...

    One of the most disappointing parts of last year's iPad lineup for some was the lack of Touch ID sensors for biometric authentication on it. Apple will use Touch ID sensors on all of its 2014 iOS devices, reports KGI. This news leads us to believe that all new iPhone, iPad, and (possibly) iPod touch models from the year will support this kind of authentication. Shipments of the sensor are set to increase by 233% this year, according to the same report. This isn't surprising if these new iOS devices indeed get the scanner. These sensors will also reportedly get an upgrade -- Apple may be ...

    Many of you may not remember this, but tablets have existed for almost twelve years. Microsoft invented the concept of the tablet computer, and it did so in a very bold and daring manner. Back then there weren’t any neigh sayers that didn’t believe in the product. On the contrary, people found them cool, and I could tell you stories of how many of us wished we could afford one. And yes, that last phrase is really what nailed the coffin for this product category over the course of almost a decade. It was sadly too pricey for the little power you received in return. Fast forward to 2014 ...

    With privacy becoming more and more a topic lately, a lot of us were shocked to learn that a ton of the companies we use every day are not doing a good job in protecting our data. Apple was one of these companies, which actually ranked the lowest in its commitment to protect your data just a couple of months ago when all this scandal became public. Since then it seems that Apple has been hard at work in changing this, and it turns out that it actually exceeded expectations. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is the leading nonprofit organization defending civil liberties in the ...

    Google has done a great job with its voice search options for both Android, and now iOS. There still are small details here and there where Siri is superior to the service, but the company has made gigantic leaps in the last couple of months with its recent updates to the service. Today Google Search reaches version 4.0 on iOS, and here's the list of enhancements. Probably the coolest update is that now Google Search follows conversations, like if you ask it for the weather today, you can then ask for the weekend information, and it'll understand that it's about the weather. It also ...

    Ever since the launch of the original iPad, one of the biggest complaints that we've all had, is that in most cases, all you're getting is a bloated smartphone UI. Surely developers can take advantage of the extra canvas with added features on the SDK, but that doesn't mean that we wouldn't want to use more than one app at a time. Competitors like Samsung and Microsoft have tried different approaches to this that have been quite popular, and Apple seems to be trying it next with iOS 8. Rumors have it that Apple will bring split-screen multitasking to iOS 8. The feature is said to even ...

    One of the biggest complaints that we all have about owning an iPhone or iPad, is the fact that neither of Apple's iOS products abides to any particular storage standard. We can't just swap information between each other trough microSD cards, nor through simple USB, and even though Air Drop was launched recently to share files between iOS devices, it doesn't even allow Apple's own OS X to access this sharing protocol. We've dreamed of a simple USB solution for the longest time, and it seams that somebody just figured it out. A company named Hyper has just launched a Kickstarter campaign ...

    There's always this notion that whomever arrives at a market first, has the best possibility of dominating it. Sadly that works almost everywhere except in the tech world, as we've seen all the big smartphone and computer companies that ruled the world years ago now either underperforming, or dead. Such is the case of Apple's iPad, which was almost 8 years late to the tablet business, but that has dominated the market ever since. In a recent survey from JD Power conducted to over 2500 tablet users, iPads ruled the results not only in the amount of tablets in the survey, but also in the ...

    Apple's launch of the iPhone 5s made it almost obvious that the company was going to incorporate Touch ID into its next tablet offerings, but the reasons why Apple couldn't deliver were clear. The company struggled for months to meet the demand of the iPhone 5s, mainly because of the Touch ID component, so building it into the new iPad line-up would've just complicated things. It's only natural that this new feature reaches the iPad this year, and rumors continue to point to that. Reports have TSMC (short for Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) already supplying Touch ID sensors ...

    Apple has shown us just how reluctant it can be about capacitive buttons. Surely the company made the capacitive touch screen popular, but they've focused on physical buttons that you have to press every single time in order to drive the phone to react with you in certain cases. Those of us that have learned the annoyance of capacitive buttons understand the reasons for that, but it seems that Apple is having some second thoughts. The company has just filed a new patent for touch-sensitive buttons, and even though we're having a hard time figuring out how these buttons are different than ...

    Microsoft's launch of Office for iPad came with a lukewarm reception. Even though the apps do a great job in bringing productivity to the iPad, you can't really use them for free, and the paid subscription is definitely non-realistic for the average person. Aside from that, the apps were met with some criticism because they lacked certain key features necessary to actually make the iPad a productivity tablet, and Microsoft has decided to address them today. Microsoft has just updated Office for iPad with printing support, aside from other new features. This will allow you to use any ...

    Even though we were almost certain that Touch ID was going to make it to the iPad line-up last year, Apple found a way to disappoint. We saw leaked photos of the iPad supporting Touch ID, but given the supply restraints that Apple was facing with the iPhone 5s, it's clear that the reason they company pushed it for a future release was due to its ability to deliver. If you're asking yourself when the feature will reach the iPad, new rumors shed some light. A French developer has just discovered that there is code on iOS 7.1 that already hints to the iPad's compatibility. Apple designates ...
