Every week at iMore we publish more breaking news, in-depth reviews, helpful how-tos, and editorial views than you can shake an apple at. While we're waiting for the week that will be to begin, here's a look back at the week that was, and at the very best iPhone, iPad, Mac, app, and accessory coverage we brought you! This week iTunes Extras finally arrived on Apple TV, we kept up with explaining iOS 8, and we stepped up our game on inclusivity and accessibility. Here's everything you don't want to miss!
Here's the deal! Our awesome CEO, Marcus Adolfsson got his hands on some $50 U.S. iTunes gift cards and he's doing with them what any awesome CEO would do — letting us give them away to you. We'll be doing that over the course of a few contests over the next few weeks, and we'll be starting with a good, old fashioned Twitter contest! We're giving each of our iMore editors and writers here at iMore one of the $50 gift certificates to give away. And yes, that means you have multiple chances to enter and to win! How exactly do you do that? I'm glad you asked!
Yes, I know, we were supposed to move the show to 11am PT, 2pm ET, but I once again screwed up the schedule so we're once again keeping it at 1pm PT, 4pm ET. Sorry about that! Next week it moves for sure! (Fingers crossed!). So, join me, Peter Cohen, and Derek Kessler as we bring you the week in iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
How we take a photo can dramatically alter the resulting image. Sometimes simply snapping something from a different angle can make an okay photo an amazing one. When looking at building, landscapes, and other subjects, it really is all about perspective. This week we want you to go out and look at things a little differently. Try experimenting with different angles and styles. You may be surprised what you come up with!
The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, July 15th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!
With the announcement that Apple updated the iPod touch lineup to bring colors and a camera down to $199 and 32GB and 64GB down to $249 and $299 respectively, you just know we couldn't resist giving one away. And as promised, since there were over 3200 comments, we're giving our winner a 32GB iPod! Keep reading to see if you are the winner!
Android Wear is the software and services from Google designed to run on a wide range of wearables, but launching first as watches. Android Central has just posted their LG G Watch review and Samsung Gear Live Review and... they're certainly a step forward in many ways. If the Pebble was the Palm V of smartwatches, maybe these are the Windows Mobile? And if so, does that mean the market is finally, painfully, mature enough for an iWatch?

Apple has just updated the iPod touch lineup to bring colors and a camera down to $199 and 32GB and 64GB down to $249 and $299 respectively.

So, to celebrate, iMore is giving one away! (Technically an Apple Store gift certificate!)

The App Store is a hard business and getting harder. Unlike almost any other aspect of Apple's business, "premium" isn't stressed. Prices have raced to the bottom, discovery is a perpetual challenge, and casino games are thriving, not beautiful, magnificent, audacious new software ideas. What affect is that having on indie software developers?
Since all of the cool kids are doing it, I thought that I'd show you what's on my iPhone. My iPhone is the single most important piece of technology in my line-up. It goes with my everywhere, and is my primary method of communication. I keep the most important apps on my first Home screen. I don't use most of the stock apps enough for them to merit a place on my first screen. Those few that remain, however, I use every day without fail. Messages, Camera, Maps, and Safari all remain on my Home screen.
