    Yesterday, we covered the top social apps for Android. Naturally, we had to make a video for iOS, too, since many social applications land on iOS first, and some never leave Apple's App Store. As always, downloading all the official applications is a great start. Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Vine, Instagram, and practically every other social network has a first-party application, and they all work pretty well. But when you start digging through the App Store, you find third-party applications, which are generally on an entirely different level. Watch this top five social apps list, and ...

    iOS 7.1 is getting close to its final release, and Apple has been sending updates to developers like clockwork. This is probably one of the most anticipated updates to iOS in years, and that's mainly because lots of iPhone 5s users have found themselves plagued with bugs and issues that Apple has confirmed will arrive on this update. Today Apple has made iOS 7.1 beta 5 available to developers, and if history serves us right, we should expect the next update to be a solid release candidate. It's still hard to tell what to expect from this update, but one thing we have confirmed is that Siri ...

    There's no denying that Apple has revolutionized the touch screen experience ever since the first-generation iPhone, and we've even seen more of that come to the way you can navigate around the iPad. At the moment, though sometimes cumbersome, you can navigate around apps and services with four-finger swipes on the iPad, though it does seem that Apple is just getting started. The company's new patent application shows a new iPad with pressure sensors in both the display and the bezel, in a way that would allow both pressure sensors to work together in order to provide users with a new ...

    Apple's recent name change for its larger iPad to iPad Air has left a lot of speculation in the tech world. Given the fact that Apple's MacBook line-up is made of the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, and also due to some rumors of Apple building a 12.9-inch iPad, many of us assumed that this larger iPad would make Apple's iPad Pro line-up in the future. Sadly new rumors don't paint a pretty picture for this possible iPad Pro as analysts at IHS have just told CNET that: “Some manufacturers over the last six months have received sample quantities of a larger panel. They’re playing around ...

    The App Store is renowned for all the great applications and games that call Apple's digital app catalog home. Many new applications are first developed for iOS before being brought to other platforms, and a healthy serving of those applications are gorgeous. All that aside, what are the best applications in the App Store for getting stuff done and taking care of business? We could rattle off dozens of well-know applications we've heard of a million times by now – Evernote, Dropbox, Drive, Quick Office, SkyDrive, Springpad, etc. But what about the lesser-known applications which deserve ...

    Swifkey is probably one of the best inventions to ever reach the Android ecosystem. It's not only one of the smartest and better looking keyboards in the Play Store, but for those of us that live abroad, it makes it extremely easy to handle multi-lingual typing over the same UI, with no need for a language-switch button. We all heard the rumors of the service reaching iOS to some extent, and that's now a reality. Say hello to Swiftkey Note, the company's new app for iOS. Sadly, as opposed to Android where you get a full keyboard replacement, Swiftkey is a just a Notes application. There ...

    Just after Apple's quarter results were in, the IDC has already begun to put its numbers together regarding the tablet market. Traditionally the iPad has seen a decline in worldwide market share over the last couple of years with the obvious proliferation of cheap Android tablets, and more-affordable Windows tablets. Still it seems things are starting to change, and this time, for Apple's benefit. The IDC's latest results show that the iPad's market share grew during the holiday season. This leaves Apple owning 33.8% of the market share, up from 29.7% last quarter, which is definitely ...

    Even though the stylus dates back to the old Apple Newton, and almost every single piece of smart technology that followed, we all remember that Steve Jobs wasn't a fan of it. One of his biggest arguments with the iPhone was that our fingers could do a better job, and that has proven to be true in most cases, but not all. Samsung has shown us how a smarter stylus can do wonders with its note line-up, and it seems Apple now wants a piece of that pie. Apple's new patent for the iPen envisions a device with an orientation sensor, in order to determine the direction and type of scribble you're ...

    If you all remember last week's news about Google's Chrome browser receiving an update with very interesting features for Android users. Among these we saw Google launching new data compression tools that would use Google servers to optimize website navigation speeds and data consumption on mobile devices, in a similar way to what we've seen from Opera for years. As expected, this new feature has just been announced for iOS today, and you should be seeing the update now, or you may access it on the iTunes Store as well. Aside from these data compression features, Google is also including ...

    As much as we know that lot's of you celebrated the launch of iOS 7, that didn't include all of us. Aside from its clear aesthetic differences to iOS 6, it has proven to be less stable and more polarizing as well. Still, one of the advantages of being an iPhone or iPad user is that you don't have to beg your carrier or OEM for updates, and if you were wondering how many people are actually using iOS 7, the news are in. Just four months after the launch of Apple's new mobile operating system, the company has now posted an 80% adoption of the platform, leaving 17% to iOS 6 and 3% to any ...

    In two month's time, it will have been four, long years since Apple released the original iPad, which disrupted the mobile space and kick-started a new era for the fluttering tablet market. Since then, Apple has released four new iterations of the full-sized iPad: the iPad 2, third-generation iPad, fourth-generation iPad, and the most recent iPad Air. In 2012, Apple also released a new version of the iPad, a much smaller, 7.9-inch iPad called the iPad mini. And late last year, it added the iPad mini with Retina display to the lineup. In total, that makes for two different display sizes, ...

    While larger iPad rumors remain just that, rumors for now, Samsung has been silently developing and announcing its large tablet, the Galaxy TabPRO 12.2 which we've recently seen at CES, alongside its smaller brethren, the TabPRO 10.1 and 8.4. According to Taiwan-based supply chain makers cited by Digitimes, Apple is expected to ship 80-90 million, while Samsung 60-70 million tablet units. However, the 12.9-inch iPad which we've heard about for quite some time now is yet nowhere to be seen; maybe Samsung's pressure with its 12.2-inch slate will urge it to the market, but industry and ...

    There’s no denying that the tablet industry has evolved at a tremendous pace in less than three years. For those of us non-believers of the original Microsoft Tablet PC, or even the first iPad and its potential, it was hard to even predict that the services and devices that we see ubiquitous today, would’ve been possible so quickly. That being said, there is no such thing as a perfect tablet, and not every device fits every user. Make sure you watch today’s Top 5 as we talk about the things we all wish to see happening in 2014. We discuss the things that are still not fixed, and the ...

    Apple's iPhone is capable of providing one of the most well-balanced, polished experiences in a smartphone. While other manufacturers and operating systems, collaboratively, are encroaching on the excellent experience offered by Apple, the ecosystem, ease of use, hardware quality, and camera performance manage to keep the iPhone competitive with the rest of the industry. That said, there are areas where Apple fails to compete, such as new standards which other operating systems and hardware manufacturers adopted long ago. NFC, for example, is a useful technology which can be found on ...

    I'm a bit of an app addict. Each time I setup a new phone, I install somewhere in the ballpark of 50 applications. That number varies, and over the year it has grown. The more apps I buy, the larger the number inevitably gets. That also means I've spent a lot of money on applications. Between iOS and Android alone, I've probably spent upwards of $600 on applications, games, and other digital content. That may seem like a lot of money, but it's been spread out over five years. And not everything was purchased at full price. In fact, a lot of the games, applications, books, and movies I ...
