Choosy aims to let developers enable default apps on iPhone and iPad

iOS currently offers no way to set third-party App Store apps as default on the iPhone or iPad. In other words, tapping on a link opens Safari and you can't make it open Chrome instead. Choosy, an open-source framework by Substantial's Alex Novosad, aims to let developers offer a work around in their own apps:

Cellular Data: How much are you using?

Remember the days when every carrier out there offered you unlimited data as pretty much a standard? Those days are mostly gone now and some carries don't even offer it as an optional choice. Sure, you can still find unlimited data plans if you're really looking for one but for the most part carriers decided the majority of folks weren't using much of the data they were offered anyway, so they went ahead and changed things up.

Weekly photo contest: Filters!

Filters are not only fun to use, they add something unique that distinguishes your photo of something from everyone else's. They also make it easier to be creative and really think outside the box when editing a photo. Sometimes applying filters on top of filters can turn something dull into something amazing. While filters aren't appropriate for every photo we take, they have their place. That's your task this week. Snap a photo and experiment with filters. Be sure to submit the ones you just don't think would be the same without filter effects!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, May 13th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

It's also time to announce the winner of our last photo contest! And the winner is...

Apple vs. Samsung: The smartphone war summarized

Apple vs. Samsung has been the biggest smartphone slobber-knocker of the last half-decade. It has resulted in massive profits for both companies, and massive amounts of litigations between them. Apple believes Samsung, once a close manufacturing parter, and Google, once a close services parter, learned from the iPhone how to make a modern smartphone and then used that knowledge to clone the Android-powered Galaxy S series. Samsung and Google contend Apple hasn't a case to stand on. So how do we condense all those years, devices, and proceedings into one cohesive telling?

Don't risk your safety, leave finding stolen iPhones and iPads to the police

Find my iPhone, a technology that allows you to track down your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or Mac to the last place it was connected to a cellular or Wi-Fi network, has unsurprisingly lead to incidents of "hero complex" over the years. That's when an every day person, not affiliated with law-enforcement, decides to take crime intervention into their own hands, track down the perpetrator, and make them pay. And, tragically, sometimes that's the last thing they ever get to do.

What's the one App Store app you couldn't do without?

Is there an App Store app you can't imagine doing without? Each and every single day there is hundreds of apps submitted to Apple for inclusion in the App Store. Some of them are great and some of them, not so much. The App Store is often times hard to navigate and finding great apps can be related to finding a needle in a haystack. But every now and then you find exactly what you're looking for and that app, whatever it may be, never leaves your device. It's an app you use every single day, love to use and can't imagine not having it available or how you ever managed to get on without it before. Do you have an app like that?
