App Store corrupted recently uploaded apps, causing them to crash

image

If you've recently updated apps on your device and find that they keep crashing, don't blame the developers. Somehow Apple's system was corrupting apps, and it was causing apps that developers had uploaded recently to crash. Apple quickly fixed the problem. But if you've downloaded an affected app (at least 100 were affected), you need to remove it and download it again. You can read more on Macworld. Some very well known apps, such as Instapaper, were involved.

New iPad mini rumors and preparations.
 
 
I've been consistently saying for years now, that it was without a doubt, only a relatively short matter of time until Apple released a smaller version of the iPad tablet. Well, it seems as if that day may finally be right around the corner. Multiple reliable sources, including the Washington Post and Bloomberg, (among others) are reporting this week, that the rumors of the iPad mini are not just rumors. The new iPad mini will likely be released by the end of this year, possibly as early as September. In fact, it sounds like Apple has its product manufactures busy, in full swing producing parts for this new iPad mini, preparing for a massive product launch very soon. Not only will the iPad mini be a direct competitor to the Amazon Kindle and Google Nexus, but it will fill a niche that needs to be addressed, since many of us, as much as we do love our iPads, would love a smaller, lighter, more compact, more portable version of the same thing as much, or more!



Rumor: 7-inch "iPad mini" to use IGZO display

Rumors of an "iPad mini" with a 7.85-inch display continue to appear, with a recent report from China, via Unwired View, saying that it will have an IGZO display. That stands for indium gallium zinc oxide, and has a number of advantages: the display can be thinner, and it uses less power. It was rumored that Apple tried to use an IGZO display in the retina iPad, but the technology wasn't quite ready.

Cuboid: 3D Puzzle Game App Review

image

The Cuboid app is an addicting 3D puzzle game available on your mobile device.  The game is played on a beautiful 3D scene with the object being to move your ‘cuboid’ from the first tile through to the goal as quickly as possible, and in as few moves as possible.  Depending on the amount of moves and the amount of time it takes you, you’ll get a score.  While it sounds simple enough, the game gets much more complex because of all the different items in the game which will either help you speed through the level or try to slow you down.

Apocalypse Knights App Review

image

Many times, the large amount of apps that are housed by Apple’s App Store can prove to be a bit daunting - especially considering that tons and tons of noteworthy applications slip under the majority of gamers’ radars only to face their App Store demises. Apocalypse Knights (free), a new game from InterServ International, is one of these titles. Not yet at its failing point, though, the hidden gem is definitely worth checking out.

With the amount of fun and potential to become a dominant App Store title, Apocalypse Knights poses you with defending yourself against onslaughts of deadly, demonic enemies that are out to kill you.

What's bigger than an iPhone, smaller than a MacBook, and the most anticipated Apple product since the original iPhone? On January 27, at a special invitation only event at the San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Steve Jobs announced Apple's new "magical, revolutionary product" -- the iPad. Meant to fill the gap between the laptop and phone, Jobs said it was "way better" than either. Let's take a look at it.

Thin, lightweight, and powerful

The iPad shares many hardware features with the iPhone, including an accelerometer, an orientation sensor to switch from portrait to landscape mode, solid-state memory, and the same 30-pin doc connector. Connectivity is also virtually the same, with wireless 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 EDR included on all models.

iPad runs iPhone apps!

The iPad will run a version of iPhone OS, and the new device can run virtually any app developed for the iPhone or iPod touch. Aps developed for the iPhone can run on the iPad in native resolution but is large enough to touch type on.

The larger screen not only makes familiar iPhone apps like Calendar, Mail, and Safari look stunning, it also provides screen real estate for more complex elements in the UI. For example, Calendar display a split-sreen view that describes the day's appointments on the left and shows you a color map of used time slots on the right. The split-screen view in Contacts displays you contacts list on the left and the full information for the contact you've selected on the right.

An ebook reader and more

Although not build into the iPad, Apple will offer a free app called iBooks, which will allow you to download and read books from it's new virtual bookstore. The new iBooks store will be accessed from and as easy to use as iTunes.

The ultimate media device?

The iPad is not the world's first tablet PC or the first eBook reader. Toshiba, Lenovo, Acer, and others sell Windows-based tablets, and Amazon has had considerable success with it's Kindle. But Apple thinks the iPad will reinvent the category by offering a vastly superior multi-touch interface an easy access to a wide-variety of apps and media via iTunes. Aple hopes to make the iPad the ultimate media device by leveraging it's existing assets which include over 100 million paying iTunes customers, established relationships with music and video content providers, and over 100,000 iPhone OS app developers.
