Every day dozens and dozens of new and updated apps and games hit the iOS and Mac App Stores. It's impossible to keep up with them all, but it's not impossible to pick out the very best. Here they are! Today we've got a cool font tool for OS X, an indispensable PDF tool for OS X, and more!
It's been a long time coming, but the iMore show's video feed is finally back on both RSS and iTunes for your viewing pleasure. That it was missing in action for so long has been as irksome for us as it has been for all of you who emailed and tweeted us about it. But, long story short, now we're back!
Apple, Google, and Microsoft are but a few of the names that have announced a commitment to including features to deter smartphone theft in all future products. Even the carriers are on board, with the big four announcing support and commitment as well.
Back at GDC 2014, we got some hands-on time with the first mobile game from Harmonix, called Record Run. (They wanted us to keep a lid on it until their big reveal at PAX East this last weekend.) These guys made the timeless Guitar Hero and Rock Band games, and as you might expect, their foray into iOS games also involves music.
Google Helpouts is a service that uses Hangouts to get users with questions in touch with experts. Categories include Computers & Electronics, Education & Careers, Fashion, Fitness and Music, among others. You use your Google account to sign in, and the interface is plain but intuitive.
Just as they were late getting into the smartphone game, Apple has not rushed into the wrist race with iWatch. Check out Smartwatch Fans and you'll find no less than 14 smartwatches that are either available now or will be early this year. Some are from major companies like Samsung, Sony and Qualcomm. Others are from startups like Pebble and Neptune that are hoping to compete wrist to wrist with the big boys and win. So how could Apple capture not only the mind share, but make the market?
Rogers has announced some new roaming add-ons for Canadian travelers. Not too long ago, Rogers unveiled a $7.99 daily roaming plan for the U.S. (which already faces stiff competition against WIND’s $15 unlimited plan), and this new one is built for roaming worldwide. But don’t get too excited; it’s $9.99 for a day for up to 20 MB (depending on where you're going), with no voice or text.
Looking for the best iPhone apps for managing your invoices? Whether you're a contractor or freelancer, one of the most important aspects of running a successful business is invoicing clients on time. Unfortunately, it's something that sometimes is easier said than done. Traditional invoice software can be cumbersome and difficult to us. Luckily the App Store is full of awesome apps that make the process a lot less painful. But which invoicing apps are the very best?
Many people have been wondering what Apple will do with the technology they acquired when they bought Primesense, the Israeli developer of the 3D sensor technology Microsoft used in the first Kinect peripheral for the Xbox 360 video game console. That's still anyone's guess. But if you'd like a Kinect-like interface for your Mac, you can buy one today thanks to Leap Motion. How well does it work? Let's take a look.
If you’ve ever felt freemium city-building games on iOS were a little repetitive, you may want to employ a robot to your aid, like Uli Kilian has done with Lego Technic and an Arduino. He’s set up his game of Jurassic Park Builder so that 11 dinosaurs that you tap regularly for rewards are close to one another, and programmed the arm to tap each of them at their designated timer intervals. For example, one dino offers up rewards every ten minutes, and another every fifteen minutes. By putting his iPad on a series of Lego wheels which move the screen around as needed, and an arm that taps the target areas and can also hold to pan around the park, Uli can have his game collecting resources 24/7.
You know the phrase "I could do this in my sleep"? Uli actually does.
