Clipchat for iPhone does pretty much the same thing Snapchat does, self destructing photos and videos. If you've ever used Snapchat before, you're probably already aware that the interface is terrible and to be quite honest, pretty tacky. Clipchat's design is quite the opposite actually, and provides the same functionality and allows you to search for friends or invite them directly from Facebook, Twitter, or email.
While full-on inter-app communications -- similar to Android's intents or Windows Phone's contracts -- were high up on many geek's iOS 7 must-have list, nothing of the sort was announced by Apple at WWDC 2013. Well, almost nothing. Apple has added inter-app communications to iPhone and iPad, they've just restricted to one very specific type: Inter-App Audio.
The DODOnotes for the iPhone 5 grabbed a little attention when first announced, likely down to its unusual form factor. Less case, and more notebook, the DODOnotes is perhaps one of the more unusual accessories you'll find for your iPhone. We like unusual, so we sourced one to take a proper look at.
Task for iPhone and iPad was recently updated to version 2.0. For those who enjoy Clear either for iOS or Mac, Task is very similar but uses a little bit different of an organization scheme. Instead of hierarchies and levels like Clear, Task takes a simpler approach and just organizes reminders by date. Didn't finish one? That's okay, Task can automatically just move it to tomorrow for you.
Quick access to system-level toggles has been one of the most constant, consistent power-user feature requests -- nay, demands -- for years now. Everything from jailbreak apps like SBSettings to iOS 6's brief flirtation with URL Schemes for Settings made it a must-have on every geek list, come every Apple iOS keynote. And now, with iOS 7 and Control Center, it's finally a reality.
iOS 7, at least as much as we saw of it at WWDC 2013, compared at a glance with previous major releases. We began including version charts in our reviews last year, including our monster iOS 6 review, and we'll be doing more with this come the fall. For now, however, I'll just leave it here so you can check it out, and weigh in where Apple's focus seems to be this year.
Color Zen is a gorgeous puzzle game that's designed for both iPhone and iPad. The premise of the game is to twist, turn, and flick mosaic tiles that are all colored and shaped differently in order to fill the screen with the same color. When two like colors meet, they'll recolor the screen that shade. Seem easy enough? Don't be so sure!
Extruded. That's the word Apple's SVP of Marketing, Phil Schiller, used to describe the new 802.11ac Airport Extreme and Time Capsule at WWDC 2013. Tall also came to mind immediately. Its footprint is smaller now, like the redesigned Airport Express, but for an internet router and base station, its height is significantly exaggerated. 3.85-inches square, it juts 6.6 inches up now. So, is it both less and more...?
Photoful for iPhone is a new photo gallery app that not only organizes your photos in a way that makes sense, but also lets you do almost all your editing and sharing in one place. The way Photoful organizes photos is also quite similar to the way iOS 7 will organize photos come fall. If you'd like to get a feel for what that'll be like, Photoful can give you a sneak preview right now.
