Overhaul of iOS Rumored; Interface could Reflect Younger Generation

image

I read an interesting article in Wired recently about the likelihood of a major redesign of iOS, Apple's software that runs our iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches. Speculation began when Apple replaced Scott Forestall with Jony Ive to head up iOS interface design. Forestall, like Steve Jobs, loved skeuomorphic design, which harks back to real world objects of the past.



iPhone 5S rumors include mockup of 5-inch iPhone

The smartphone industry is moving so fast, offering such a variety of models that if Apple releases an iPhone 5S in June, as is rumored, it appears destined to be a letdown. Apple typically makes changes in the form factor every two years, but often makes internal upgrades in between. A great article on 9To5Mac, titled, "Can Apple get away with another 'S' iPhone?" questions whether this sort of incremental upgrade this year will be enough to impress consumers.

iOS 6.1 available; adds ability to purchase movie tickets via Fandango using Siri

image

iOS 6.1 became available on Monday, and no doubt you will want to upgrade. If you're in the habit of syncing with your desktop computer, you can simply connect your device and go into iTunes and click the Check for Update button. However, you may want to consider updating "over the air," which requires a WiFi connection. A great article on TidBITS recommeds this method of updating because the iTunes update is much larger. For example, the iPhone over-the-air update is 107 MB whereas the iTunes update is 989.5 MB.



Review: Taste My Steel by Rockhard Games

image

Who doesn’t like a good side scrolling infinite runner?  If you just raised your hand, this review probably won’t interest you.  For those that are left, I’m afraid this game might not interest you.  I appreciate that the developers felt they were doing something slightly different than the rest of the crowd, but frankly the game feels like a Robot Unicorn / Unicorn Dash knock-off with a horse riding, sword wielding demon.  While in theory that sounds cool, in practice it comes off as a cheap second rate attempt at doing something that’s already been done much better.  This may sound awfully harsh, but keep in mind we’re talking about a genre that already has plenty of entries.
