iPod touch 4 has Retina Display but no IPS

iPod touch 4 has Retina Display but no IPS

Apple didn't list IPS (inter plane switching) as part of the iPod touch 4 specs for a reason -- the iPod touch 4 screen, while LED and "Retina Display" 960x640 resolution lacks the IPS technology of the iPhone 4 display.

IPS, which Apple has rolled out for everything from iMac to iPad to iPhone 4 provides a much greater viewing range than a standard display.

So the still camera isn't the only step down when you go from iPhone 4 to iPod touch, but does anyone out there care as much about IPS?

iOS apps growing faster than iTunes music?

iOS apps growing faster than iTunes music?

Both iTunes Store music and iOS App Store apps are being downloaded at an increasing rate. Apps are just increasing faster.

As can be seen, the App store has reached the same total downloads in 2.2 years as the iTMS reached after five years. The two curves are likely to be the same height (around 13 billion each) before the year is over.

I'm downloading far more apps than music, what about you?

Final Freeway - app review

Final Freeway - app review

I have seen Final Freeway in the App Store for a while and just glanced by. When looking at apps to review this week I felt a little nostalgic and thought I would give this little gem a spin. The result? Well, if you enjoy old-school arcade racing, if you remember when Out Run was the arcade game, then Final Freeway is for you!

iPod nano not iPod OS, not iOS, something new?

iPod nano not iPod OS, not iOS, something new?

Is it possible the new iPod nano isn't running iOS, but isn't running the old iPod OS, either? The latest firmware has hit Apple's servers so developers are tearing into it and here's what Steven Troughton-Smith had to say on Twitter:

The nano codename is N20 it appears; also labelled as "1.0" of the OS. Definitely not iOS

Rusty Mercury also says it's running on a Samsung S5L8723, a step up from the previous Samsung S5L8723.

So what is this OS 1.0? something new? Something hybrid?

Updated: Apple resets Game Center in advance of iOS 4.1 launch

Updated: Apple resets Game Center in advance of iOS 4.1 launch

Looks like Apple has just reset Game Center, their new social gaming network, and any developers testing the service on the Gold Master (GM) seed are now greeted with a "create new account" screen. Moreover, all existing Friends are gone, meaning if you intend to keep connected when iOS 4.1 goes live this week, you'll have to send and approve your friend requests all over again.

That is, if Apple doesn't reset it again before launch. But that's what development builds are for, right?
