App-specific passwords coming to iCloud for third-party app sync

If you use a third-party app that stores and synchronizes data with iCloud, Apple will soon require you to use specific passwords for those apps to access information in iCloud. This will allow your actual iCloud password to be masked while still granting access in a secure way to those apps to retrieve, store, and synchronize information with your iCloud.

15 Years of Mobile Nations!

Announcing the winners in our 15 Years of Mobile Nations contest!

September 9th, 2014, marked 15 years since the Mobile Nations story began, with the launch of Visor Central.

Clash of Clans update summons Lava Hound and increases upgrade caps

A really big update to the hit casual game Clash of Clans introduces a new unit and increases the maximum upgradeable level on many others. The Lava Hound is a new type of flying tank that can take the hits while other units move in for the kill.

You'll need dark elixir and a Dark Barracks to cook him up, and once air defense takes him down, he'll explode into a bunch of tiny lava pupppies. Barbarians and Archers can be upgraded to level 7 now, Archer Towers to level 13, and Dark Barracks to level 6.

iPhone pre-orders mean Apple is lined up for another record holiday season

Yesterday Apple announced iPhone 6 and 6 Plus pre-orders topped 4 million within 24 hours. We told you that this beats the prior record, set by the iPhone 5 launch, where Apple sold had advance orders of only half that many phones. Not that 2 million was a small number — it was insanely high for the time. But now they've doubled the prior record with even higher prices.
