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.

iTunes 11.2.1 review

iTunes 11.2 arrived on Thursday along with Apple's release of a new version of Mavericks (10.9.3). The new version of iTunes has some changes that will be welcome for podcast listeners, along with other enhancements and improvements designed to improve performance and reliability. The initial release also created a bizarre problem involving iCloud's Find My Mac feature and the local /Users folder.

One on one with the Apple Store's One to One training

Editor's note: While the more frequent, tech-savvy of iMore's readers might already know their way around an iPhone, iPad, or Mac, for anyone new to Apple, or family and friends not-so-familiar, Apple Retail offers an amazing array of training options that really don't get the attention they deserve.

Beats Music for iPad review: Putting music discovery front and center

When Beats Music launched at the beginning of this year, it was iPhone only. Luckily that's now changed and Beats has now launched a dedicated iPad app as well. That's right, it isn't just a blown up version of the iPhone app, but one specifically designed to take advantage of the iPad's larger screen size. But does it fix any of my previous issues with Beats? Let's find out!
