    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 ...

    As popular and successful as Samsung may be, the company has taken the spotlight over the last couple of years for ripping-off a lot of companies in their products, the most notorious being Apple. We've seen various lawsuits flying around between these two companies, precisely because of how the Galaxy line-up follows on the iPhone's footsteps, and yet, it seems that Samsung hasn't had enough. SamMobile has just leaked a screenshot of how S Voice will look on the future Samsung UI, and you guessed it, just like S Voice looked like Siri in its inception, this new update looks like the new ...

    Facebook has been rumored to release its own news application, and the social network did exactly that. The app is called Facebook Paper, and it will be available on the iPhone starting February 3, which is next Monday. There's no word on an Android client, at least not for now, and not in the initial press release. While you can better understand what Paper is by checking out the video below, expect it to bring you news, as well as information from your friends, in what appears to be a beautifully designed application. Structured in stories and sections, Paper will contain your News Feed ...

    Ever since the launch of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c we've seen every US carrier fight a hard battle in offering the best deals possible to gain new iPhone customers. From gift cards, to discounts, to additional incentives, we've seen aggressive things can get. Still, if you thought the holiday discounts were good, there's a new one that's just unbeatable. Virgin Mobile has just announced that it's slashing the unsubsidized price of the 16GB iPhone 5s to $459.99, which is down from the usual $649.99 that you'll see everywhere else. In the case of the 16GB iPhone 5c this is even sweeter at ...

    Just as we saw earlier that Apple was granted a patent for a smarter stylus, it seems that Cupertino is hard at work at nailing additional patents. The iPhone has always been famous for the good image quality of its camera, but it seems that Apple wants to take things a step further. The company was just granted two patents for interchangeable lenses on the iPhone. One of these patents deals with the lens' ability to enhance image quality through better optics, and the other patent deals with the lens' ability to attach to the iPhone magnetically. These patents aren't new though. Apple ...

    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 ...

    There's no denying that Samsung dominates the mobile space around the world, but the company hasn't really had that same consistent luck in beating Apple in the US. Samsung has sold more Galaxy phones than Apple has sold iPhones on more than one quarter, but it seems that doing so during the past holiday season wasn't possible. Counterpoint Research just shared its numbers and Apple's iPhone sales grew from 31% to a staggering 43% during the month of December. Samsung on the other hand actually lost marketshare, going from a 34% to just 30% during the same month. Analysts predict that this ...

    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 ...

    A lot of Apple's recent rumors and patents are starting to make sense when you start considering the recent iPhone 6 rumors. For starters, in a recent interview with ABC, Tim Cook revealed that the manufacturing company that Apple purchased in Mesa, Arizona was to produce Sapphire glass. We also have a lot of Apple patents that include solar charging technologies, and recent hires in the company include specialists focused on solar panels and charging. Seeking Alpha analysts have now began to connect the dots with all the recent rumors of a bigger iPhone, and the idea of merging sapphire ...

    Isn't it amazing how one single product can either dent or shape an industry? A couple of decades ago nobody conceived of the idea of having a computer at home until Apple and Microsoft focused on giving us what we still didn't know we needed. The same could be said about Personal Digital Assistants, that took years to become popular, until Palm figured-out the right formula for success. Digital music struggled for years until Apple gave us the iPod, and before 2007, smartphones were a niche for business people. Love it or hate it, the iPhone has changed the way we see smartphones in a ...

    Those running Android are familiar with the third party keyboard SwiftKey, whether they use it or not, whether we talk smartphones or tablets. Apparently, SwiftKey will make its way to the iPhone (and probably the iPad too), according to the latest from @evleaks. However, there appears to be a catch... iOS does not currently allow third party keyboard so the software bit hinted (read: leaked) here is called SwiftKey Note, which might as well be a note-taking application for Apple devices. There's no more information for the moment so we can't serve with anything specific, but the image ...

    While we haven't necessarily experienced it ourselves, iPhones running iOS 7 have been reportedly crashing and rebooting, generating a black/white screen of death; according to reports, it is basically the splash screen which is either black on white, or vice versa, depending on the hardware color of the phone itself. Talking about this with Mashable, Trudy Muller, an Apple spokesperson, said: "We have a fix in an upcoming software update for a bug that can occasionally cause a home screen crash". The fix is expected to be part of iOS 7.1, which is currently in beta version -- with its ...
