Apple no longer allowing app downloads or updates following refund requests

If you've ever bought an app through the App Store and, for whatever reason, decided you needed to request a refund from Apple, then kept on using it and even updated it, bad news for you — it looks like Apple has begun blocking that practice. If you legitimately had an issue and didn't want the app, you won't be affected. If you were taking advantage, those days are done.

Swarm for iPhone review: It's not Foursquare, and here's why that's great!

Swarm by Foursquare is a new social checkin and meetup up for iPhone. At first I was a little stumped. Why would I need Swarm if my friends and I already use Foursquare? However, as I started using Swarm I started to change my mind. It's a different app and it's useful for something that's both similar and yet very different from Foursquare — seeing what your friends are up to and figuring out how and where to meet up with them.

Design your own unique t-shirt with this new app from Uniqlo

Clothing retailer Uniqlo is now offering customers the opportunity to customize their T-shirts. Similar to what a custom screen-printed shirt would be, Uniqlo's rather unique UTme! app, available for Android and iOS, will allow users to custom print a shoot with their own designs or photographs. There is also a community gallery where you can see designs that your peers have created and also vote on them; it's like an Instagram for tees.

Microsoft dives into the Office for iPad design process

Microsoft has provided a look behind the scenes on how they developed Office for iPad and highlighted an impressive 27 million download milestone. They made plenty of smart moves, such as designing for the iPad, rather than simply porting a desktop version to a tablet.

Subtle touches like a lightweight but customizable menu ribbon, and tweaking the standard iOS 7 design principles with their own spin helped make Office the app it is.
