Today, Apple unveiled their newest iteration of iOS (appropriately called iOS 7) at WWDC. It features a complete redesign that re-envisions what is possible with an iPhone and iPad while adding a ton of great new features that make it even better for Apple’s power users. Let’s check out what iOS 7 brings to the table. (more…)
I was a child of the 1990′s. This means that I grew up on Sega Genesis and NES – I also owned an N64, a PlayStation 2 and various other consoles and handhelds. In my early teens, the games my friends and I played the most were racing ones. We were all really into the old Need For Speed, Burnout, and Gran Turismo games.
At a certain point, though, Need For Speed started getting a bit stale and we moved on (which is another way of saying we started going out with women). But, in my early university years, Need For Speed re-invented itself with Shift and Shift 2 – realistic driving games that had more in common with Forza Motorsport than they did with Burnout. It was a welcome change. EA also released the titles on iPad, and with no sign of a third version coming, having a look at Shift 2: Unleashed seems apt.
Word games have been around for ages and they still live on as strong as ever in today’s day and age. The App Store hosts countless games that fit the genre, however it’s hard to find ones that truly stick out. This roundup will focus on 10 different word games that are among my favorites as well as other writers’ favorites here on iPad.AppStorm. To find out which apps made the cut, read on after the break.
This week, we’re asking which type of iPad model you currently own. It always amazes me that there are some dedicated users (including some who read iPad.AppStorm!) that still have an original iPad, running iOS 5 and since it’s celebrated its third birthday this week, I thought it fitting to poll our readers.
So go ahead and vote in this week’s poll on the right – which generation of iPad are you currently using?
In this day and age, there are many different ways to discover new music. However, finding your new favorite band is a task of its own. Often, music services find bands and artists that record labels want you to hear but not what actually what suits your music tastes, and this can make finding quality new music a pain.
That is where Discovr Music comes into the picture. While it’s definitely not a new app on the market, Discovr Music is one that every music lover truly appreciates. Essentially, it offers a means to find new music you would like in a matter of seconds. Read more about it after the break.
Smaller is always better, correct? Smaller is more portable, easier to hold, and is more likely to be used in most situations, correct? That’s typically correct, especially in the technology world.
But that isn’t taking into account the loss of potential productivity, or the advantages of the larger size. At some point, a smaller size begins to impact the capabilities of the device, even if the two devices run identical software. While the iPad mini really is an excellent device that is designed to please most users, there is at least one group of users that likely will not find the iPad mini’s smaller form factor an improvement over the more traditional, 9.7″ iPad.
That segment of users are the true iPad power users, the people who consistently use the iPad not just to consume, but also to create.
This week we’re asking: what do you use your iPad’s side switch for? Of course, you’ve got the standard offering between locking the screen rotation or muting your iPad, but if you’ve jailbroken your iPad then you’ve got almost infinite possibilites with it! It seems like a pretty mundane question but one that will be sure to divide our readership community! So go ahead and let us know what you use your side switch for in this week’s poll on the right!
Achoo! Looks like someone’s coming down with a serious case of the swine flu. Well, at least a case of allergies. The rest of your community may stay away from you, but little do they know that you’re the one who will save them from the wrath of monsters that are out to get them.
While the plot line of Gesundheit! HD is somewhat disgusting, the game has received tons of praise. But what is so telling about a game where an allergy-ridden pig is the protagonist? Find out what makes Gesundheit! HD award-winning after the break.
From the very beginning, the iPad was meant to represent a limited device. While Apple continuously pushes it as the harbinger of the next generation of computing, there is no denying the fact that it simply isn’t good at certain tasks. Some of those tasks are trivial: file management, multitasking, and various other small issues annoy those who try to get actual work done on the device. Thankfully, applications are released daily that help to alleviate many of these pain points, and limitation often helps breed creativity.
The largest issue, however, isn’t one that developers can fix: data entry on the iPad is abysmal for any task that involves typing more than 500 characters.
