With the introduction of the iPad mini last year, Apple once again changed the way we interact with mobile technology. Smaller and more portable than its more cumbersome older sibling, the iPad mini is a device designed to come with us wherever we may wander. As a result of the mini's superior portability, it's also far more likely to be in the line of fire.
At such times, a reliable protective case not only comes in handy to ward off scratches and scrapes. A good, heavy-duty protective case can make the difference between a catastrophic, life-ending event for your iDevice and a mere bump in the road. With that in mind, check out these ultra-protective iPad mini cases, each with its own unique features and advantages, yet all designed to absorb and redirect the shock and potential damage your valuable iPad mini will likely encounter.
The website Alibaba.com is already selling dozens of different cases for the iPad 5. According to reports, Apple typically gives case manufacturers specs far enough in advance so they'll offer accessories by the time the device launches. It's not unreasonable, therefore, to make inferences about the forthcoming model based on what Alibaba.com is selling.
Do you have an idea for an app but lack the programming knowledge to begin building it? In this blog series, How To Unleash Your Inner App Developer, I will take you, the non-programmer, step by step through the process of creating apps for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Join me on this adventure and you will experience how fun turning your ideas into reality can be!
In my previous post, we started the process of creating a prototype of an iPhone app called iAppsReview. You learned how to create a new project in Xcode, how to add a storyboard to a project and configure it, and how to add a navigation controller to a storyboard. You had just begun to configure the table view, which we will finish in this post. You'll learn how to create multiple sections in a table view, set section header text, add images to a project, and incorporate them in table-view cells.
Sticking to your diet plan and exercise regimen can be extremely hard, as can keeping the weight off once it’s gone. We’re far enough into the new year now that almost all of us have given up on our New Year’s resolutions. Getting in shape and losing weight were likely at the top of your list of goals, and after a few months it's natural to struggle to meet them as your resolve wanes.
Luckily, you have at your fingertips a wide variety of iPhone applications that can help you to succeed. I've listed four of this year's best free weight-loss apps for iPhone that will all but shed the pounds for you!
When developing mobile apps, it's no longer optional to have an interface that works with not only iPhones, but iPads, iPad minis, and the many other mobile devices used widely today. For small businesses especially, managing multiple platforms brings a whole new level of complexity to mobile app development.
However, you can find a great deal of support in developing cross-platform mobile applications by using the tools I've listed below.
As an iOS device owner, it can be tempting to "free" your iOS devices from Apple's seemingly stringent limitations. I have never jailbroken my iPad or iPhone, but two of my personal pet peeves include the inability to download files greater than 50mb over 3G, or to delete Passbook and Newsstand from the home screen. I can resolve both of these issues through jailbreaking, yet I remain hesitant.
Hype is building as Google prepares to release its new "augmented reality" eyewear, Google Glass. While the device is bound to break new ground, this infographic by greatbusinessschools.org focuses on the gamble Google is willing to make in order to pioneer an emerging industry of wearable technology.
The graphic, compiled from recent media reports, outlines the main areas of potential concern; the device's reliance on users' data connection, look and feel, price point, and privacy concerns.
Most iPad cases are expensive and are often made of imported plastic or pleather. Packaging, transportation, and processing all add to the price of the product. If you're interested in keeping costs down, supporting an American company, and buying an environmentally friendly product, you may want to consider the new Apple Pie's iPad Case Kraft 3 Pack ($16.99, On sale from $19.99).
Did you know there are more than 750,000 apps in Apple's App Store with another 700,000 available in Google Play? And this is what’s really mind-blowing: More than 65 percent of those apps will never even recover the cost of the initial investment. That means most app developers fail to make it in the app industry, and that’s a pretty serious issue…
Naturally, I wanted to understand what these developers were doing wrong so I could avoid the same fate. I wanted to be among the top 10 percent who make bucket-loads of cash.
Productivity apps are designed to make our day-to-day lives flow more smoothly and simply.
