As observed by Touch Arcade publication, there's a good number of popular iOS games discounted to just $1. It seems that this deal is related to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday and there are chances that even more will see price cuts in the near future. Here's the list with some of the most important titles:
When it comes to iPhone's camera, Apple usually prefers to deploy incremental updates rather than opt for big changes. But this is apparently going to change with the launch of the upcoming iPhone, says well-known Apple follower John Gruber.
Gruber said that he heard "from a birdie of a birdie" that Apple is working on major camera improvements. Here's the original quote:
"The specific thing I heard is that next years camera might be the biggest camera jump ever. I don't even know what sense this makes, but I've heard that it's some kind of weird two-lens system where the back camera uses two lenses and it somehow takes it up into DSLR quality imagery."
What do you think of this? Do you think the upcoming iPhone needs an upgraded camera or this one is pretty fine, as well?
Among a myriad of fantastic features, iOS 8 brought users the long-awaited ability to add third-party keyboards, replacing the boring stock keyboard Apple provides. Keyboards like Swype add the ability to type using swipe gestures from letter to letter, making the experience arguably faster and more comfortable.
Folks may know Fleksy as the keyboard that was used to beat the fastest typing speed in the world. Now that Fleksy is available for iOS, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Brazilian teenager Marcel Fernandes Filho sought to beat his previous world record.
Marcel Fernandes Filho's previous record was 18.19 seconds, requiring him to type out the following phrase:
Filho started training to type even faster with his iPhone 6 Plus and managed to beat his old record by 1.19 seconds, clocking his speed at 17.00 seconds. According to the Guinness World Records, Filho and Fleksy now hold the fastest typing speed in the world. Now he has no excuse not to text his friends back.
It seems like every few months Facebook is trying to have its users use multiple apps for all of the different features on the social network. We previously saw Facebook Messenger ostracize the main app with its own, making it mandatory if folks want to message friends and family.
Apart from Facebook's Pages app, the social network giant has just released Facebook Groups for all of your groups' needs. Within the app, folks can organize, view, post, join and upload to groups on the social network. Groups have become widely popular for friends and family who would like to share photos/videos or chat in a closed space to a selected group of people. Schools, neighborhoods, businesses have also started to use groups as a way to communicated with their communities.
Facebook Groups comes as a 54-megabyte download and is available for free on the App Store. Folks downloading the app will enjoy the iOS-optimized look and feel, and will need to be running iOS 7 or later to install.
As the date gets closer to the new year, Apple is starting to get serious about launching the Apple Watch in "early-2015". Earlier today, Apple began seeding iOS 8.2 to developers and included WatchKit in the new iOS 8.2 SDK.
WatchKit allows for developers to start creating apps for Apple's first wearable device. The SKD is available right in the Developer Center for iOS Developer Program members. WatchKit was previously rumored to not be available until next summer, but it seems Apple wants the Watch to be release among a myriad of applications for folks to download.
Popular company's like the Facebook-owned Instagram have already received early access to WatchKit and have begun to developer features for the Apple Watch. Co-founder and CEO of Instagram Kevin Systrom chimed in from behind the scenes, "Apple Watch allows us to make the Instagram experience even more intimate and in the moment,". He continues to point out, "With actionable notifications you can see and instantly like a photo or react with an emoji. The Instagram news and watch list allows you to see your friends’ latest photos, follow new accounts and get a real-time view of your likes and comments."
Developers interested in creating apps, or updating apps, for next year's Apple Watch can begin today, obviously with a $99 iOS Developer subscription. WatchKit along with the iOS 8.2 SDK can be found in the Developer Center today.
On Monday we saw Apple push out the iOS 8.1.1 update to the public, which has been in the works for quite some time. iOS 8.1.1 was made most famous for blocking the recent Pangu Jailbreak, so so we can't stress enough to tell our readers not to update if Jailbroken or planning to Jailbreak.
Today comes the next step in Apple's mobile operating system. Our favorite fruit company has begun to seed iOS 8.2 to developers. iOS 8.2 beta 1 has been released alongside the long-awaited WatchKit, allowing developers to begin developing apps and features for the 2015 Apple Watch.
Currently no changes, other than WatchKit support, have been found in the new beta firmware. Although it is strange that Apple would release the next iteration of iOS so soon after iOS 8.1. We're still looking through the firmware to find any changes or new features, let us know if you find anything.
Looking to spice up your iOS gaming but don't know where to start? Good news! Publisher Square Enix has just sliced the price on all of its Final Fantasy games by 30-50%. Although they are not iOS originals, the games have been fully ported and add new features like iCloud syncing and iOS controller support.
In the world of RPGs, the Final Fantasy games are arguably the best in the business. Currently the App Store offers Final Fantasy 1-6, along with Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, all for various prices.
Unfortunately, Final Fantasy VII has yet to be ported to iOS, and we know a good amount of folks are waiting for that one. Square Enix has proven itself time and time again to push the envelope on mobile games and RPGs, so new fan or old, this price drop is a good place to start your iOS gaming career.
