With great games available for iOS and the iPad, you’d be right to automatically assume that the iPad is a quality gaming platform. On that note, gaming and iOS is the theme of this opinion piece, more specifically I’ll be discussing whether the iPad can truly be a great gaming platform or whether it’s just a toy in the realm of consoles and desktop gaming.

Our weekly poll is back, and this week we’re asking the important question: how exactly do you use iCloud on your iPad?

Ever since it was released back with iOS 5 in October 2011, the service has attracted around 300 million users as of April 2013 and with its tight integration with OS X, Apple have made it so much easier to keep data across all your devices in constant sync with each other. So go ahead and vote in this week’s poll (multiple answers are possible, of course) — we’d love to be able to build a picture of our readers’ iCloud habits!

There’s no doubt the iPad has been a huge success for Apple. It has sold in the millions and slots effortlessly into the Apple product line up. The more recent release of the iPad mini was, to many, an expected move from Apple, filling a rather large void between the iPhone and the full size iPad. As September rapidly approaches (the next generation of iPad is hotly tipped for a September release), this article looks at what we can expect on the next generation iPad and what Apple should probably be including.

iOS is among the greatest success stories in the technology world. The rate of growth, the number of users, the simplicity of the interface, and the sheer number of functional programs available for the platform boggles the mind.

But I did say among; iOS is not the number one mobile operating system in most metrics. Android, the mobile operating system designed and maintained by Google, reigns supreme in overall marketshare, in devices shipped, and in manufacturers who use the software. (more…)

About a year ago I wrote an article for iPad AppStorm entitled, “What the new Microsoft Surface means for the iPad”. It got lots of comments, many of which called me biased towards Apple and the iPad. Maybe I was slightly biased, but as an iPad and iPhone owner writing on an iPad website that was to be expected. Today I revisit this old topic as news of Microsoft slashing the price of the Surface RT (the lower end model) is released upon the world. In this article I’ll again be looking at the Surface and the iPad, what they mean for each other and whether the Surface has proved a true contender to the iPad on a number of levels.

Almost two years have passed since the sad death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. At the time of his death, there was much debate on how Apple would move forward, whether they would lose their way or be able to continue pushing boundaries and creating their own areas in the industry. In this opinion piece, I’ll be looking at what Steve Jobs meant for Apple as well as how Apple have coped after losing their mentor and figurehead. Read on for more.
