iOS 6 to dump Google Maps; new Map app from Apple to have 3-D

image

Google Maps has been the built-in maps application on iOS since it was first introduced in 2007. But now there's pretty solid evidence that iOS 6, which is expected to be previewed to developers in June, will replace that with Apple's own Maps application. 9To5Mac broke the news and offered a mockup of a new 3-D feature that is generating excitement.



Appy Geek gets update!

image

One of my fav news reader apps (see our Appy Geek review here) got an update last week. The only thing that jumped out at me on iPad was additional footer ads that now appear (which seemed to disappear by changing screen orientation). Apparently, there are more features under the hood now for iPhone/iPod touch. Things like a new "Word Cloud" feature that I still don't quite understand, but maybe the added PR release below will help explain better than I can...

Tower Raiders 2 Gold is Addicting at Best

image

Tower Raiders 2 Gold is a standard tower building app that adds a few different twists.  The overall goal is to protect the crystals from enemies that try to follow the trail directly to them.  Your army has a variety of different defensive weapons that can be purchased to kill any threat that travels down this path.  However, there are additional features and weapons that can be unlocked as you continue through the game. 

To start; when you initially get onto the main menu, you can either “Play Now” or choose from “Options”.  The options allows you to configure the sound, recycling settings for new games, and a chance to access the forums where other players are discussing issues and concerns.  This is very helpful when trying to win.

We've heard rumors of Apple possibly introducing a Retina display Mac for quite some time now. They set the benchmark for display resolutions when the new iPad was given a Retina boost.

Now there's more evidence surfacing of a Retina enabled Mac...



iHangy evolves and adds earbuds to their already cool iPhone necklace.

I've written before about the iHangy iPhone necklace and it's been well received everywhere I've worn mine. But the one thing many folks have asked for are integrated earbuds. Those wishes have been addressed.





MatchBook Pro iPhone case encourages you to play with matches, but it's safe!

image
When I saw the MatchBook Pro (no, that's not a typo for MacBook Pro) I was intrigued. I don't smoke, but I light candles occasionally so the exposed 'matches' that really function as a kickstand are a neat touch.


The case itself is well made, with a felt lining to protect your iPhone 4 or 4S, and a hard shell exterior. The 'matches' have a rubber tip which helps keep the case stationary when the kickstand is in use.


Everything iPhone - Apps, Accessories, Reviews, Wallpapers etc | iPhone Life Magazine

The iPhone has become a benchmark for all other smartphones to compete with.  Reviews on the cases, accessories, apps, wallpapers and more are located below.  Here are a couple of Articles that showcase what we have to offer.  For eaxample, iPhone 4S by Alex Cequea (iPhone Life Magazine Editor in Chief).

In that article, Alex says that the iPhone 4S has the exact same physical form factor as the iPhone 4. However, the insides are a whole different story, and Apple tried to make that very clear. The most notable improvements are the 8MP camera with 1080p video recording, the A5 dual-core processor (same as the iPad 2), and an improved battery life (8 hours of 3G talk time, 200 hours of standby). As far as the capabilities, the new Siri Assistant feature was the highlight of the show. The Siri Assistant recognizes natural language and can answer questions such as, "What's the temperature out today?" Combined with the phone's GPS, you can say something like, "Remind me to call my wife when I get to work." The Assistant will not only know who your "wife" is, it'll also know where "work" is and pop up a reminder to "call Marcy" when you get there."

Here's another great article, The Best iPhone 4 Cases. This article goes on to explain that like its iPhone predecessors, cases have become one of the most popular ways to accessorize your cell phone. Most cell phone consumers buy a case bundled with their new phone to protect it from day one. And who can blame them? Mobile devices have become hugely valuable and expensive items; you want to protect them the best way you can. There are literally hundreds of cases on the market. Let's examine the different options available on the market to help you choose the one that's right for you.


What to know how to create your own app?  "The first step in creating an app is to understand what you want to create and how you will measure its success. Make sure the idea is well vetted and there is a solid business case behind it. There are roughly 600 new apps submitted to Apple each day—what is going to differentiate your app from the thousands that are already available and being launched each week? Here are some questions you’ll want to ask when getting your app idea..."
