What’s so hot about iOS 6?

image

 

I didn’t want to say anything about iOS 6 until I had some time to get used to it and decide what I think are some of the most useful updates. And probably to your surprise and relief, I’m not going to complain about the m-a-p-s. They know it’s broken, they’ve apologized, suggested alternatives, and they’re gonna fix the heck out of it for us. It’s gonna rock our worlds, you guys. I’m sure of it.

Facebook

I’m a frequent flyer on Facebook, so I’m pretty happy with the Facebook integration because it makes sharing photos and making status updates way easier.

4 Of the Best Time Wasters You’ll Ever Love: Addictive Games for iPad Lovers.

Admittedly, I don’t have a ton of time to waste. Running a business takes up pretty much all of my mental space and energy, but sometimes, I just need to veg out a little bit. If I’m not watching any of my favorite reality TV shows like The Pitch, Flipping Out, or Shark Tank, I just might pick up my iPad for a little mindless fun. Here’s a list of my go-to favorites.



The Making of an App: Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Access!

image

 

I just realized the other day that I talk about apps to you guys all the time, but I never talk about how they’re actually made. And this is a huge oversight on my part, because I make them. Designing apps is one of the major things we do at our studio! Why haven’t I brought you to the office to show you around?

I always love a good behind-the-scenes peek, don’t you?

Apps appear on the device in the palm of your hand as if by magic, but there’s so much that goes into planning, designing and coding them!



Out With The Old, In With the New: Selling Your Old iPhone

image

 

It hardly seems fair to call my iPhone 4S (released October 14, 2011) “old,” but pretty soon it’s going to be!  I feel like I just got it, but that’s the way of the world isn’t it?  You about take something out of the box and it’s already the “old” version.

So, how can a person with any sort of reasonable electronics budget possibly keep up with it all?

By selling your “old” stuff so you can get the new hotness, of course!



Beyond Instagram: Photo Editing Apps

image

 

Don’t get me wrong, iPhone Life-ers. I love me some Instagram (my handle is adamcharvey. Follow me!), but sometimes I want to edit and create instead of color correct and experiment with filters. I feel like I can take my superawesome photo skills to the next level and start getting truly creative with my stuff. So, the other day I set out to find some cool photo editing apps.



Siri and Me: Caught in a Bad Romance

image

 

I dare you not to have that Lady Gaga song stuck in your head now!

(Sorry, I had to share it. It’s all I’ve been humming as I write this post for you guys.)

It was love at first sight when I met Siri. Here was someone (something?) who took care of me. She was smart and understood my needs. I saw those ads on TV—the ones where people are having a conversation with Siri, and she’s taking dictation, finding directions, making calls.

“YES!” I thought. I do all those things. I had to have Siri too!  So I got myself a nice new iPhone.



Stay Connected--Even on Vacation

image

You guys know me pretty well by now, so you know that I’m a business owner. With that comes the complete inability to ever take a total vacation from work. So, when I do go on vacation, I have to take my office with me. Today I’m going to share with you a few tips on how to set up your mobile office so you can keep things moving and grooving while you’re catching some rays on vacation.

This is multitasking to the max: working whilst relaxing.



Apple vs. Google: Who Will Become King of the Hill?

image

 

Last week Apple announced that it would be terminating its agreement to use Google Maps as the default location service for iOS. Instead, Apple is developing its own in-house application that will become standard starting this fall.

Why the change?  The mobile location service arena is the new battleground front...and it's about to get messy.



Why Go To The Store Anymore? [Best iPhone Shopping Store Apps]

image

 

Have you guys gotten into using store apps at all yet? How great are they? I think it’s really reinventing the shopping experience, and eventually, we’ll be able to order everything from our phones.

Think of how much time we’ll save!



Pet App Reviews: Apps Have Gone to the Dogs!

image

 

I think I’ve probably mentioned to you iPhone Life-ers that I have two little dogs. Well, they’re not really my dogs, per se. They’re my wife’s dogs, so by virtue of their proximity (and their sleeping on my bed), they’re also mine.

That's a picture of little Dolce looking swanky in her jacket right there.  Poor Bella is terribly camera shy, so just imagine Dolce with more hair and that's what she looks like.

They amuse me, so I like to help out with taking care of them. Also, there’s tons of cool apps I get to experiment with!

Pet owners are crazy about apps!
