Get moving with Just Dance Now and your iPhone

Just Dance Now recently launched for iOS and Android, which offers booty-shaking gameplay minus the console. Players use their smartphone as a motion controller, and any screen with browser access as the primary game display. You need to match up with the movements of the dancer on the TV, laptop, or tablet, and are scored based on how closely you mimic the movements. If you're feeling brave, you can share video clips of your sweet, sweet dance moves to social media.

How to use archive and trash simultaneously in the iOS 8 Mail app

How to use archive and trash simultaneously in the iOS 8 Mail app

One of the main reasons I've used third party mail apps such as Mailbox for such a long time is because the stock iOS Mail app has never made it easy to use archive and trash simultaneously. Sometimes I don't want to archive an email, I want to delete it. And other times I want to archive but not delete. If I can't have both options conveniently at my fingertips, that doesn't work for me. Luckily, iOS 8 brings swipe options that actually let archive and trash play nice together for the first time. You've just got to change a few settings first!

Why bad bugs hit good people

Why bad bugs hit good people

Software is buggy. Humans write and test software and humans are imperfect; as a result, so is software. This is the reality of software and should come as a surprise to nobody. What can be surprising are the kind of bugs we actually see make their way out into the wild. We've seen two very prominent examples this week. The first was the release of iOS 8.0.1 on Wednesday which broke cellular service and Touch ID for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users. The very same day we saw a huge bug in bash publicly disclosed; a vulnerability leaving millions and millions of personal computers, servers, embedded systems, and who knows how many other types of Internet-connected devices open to attack. And for most people, it's baffling how bugs like this could ever find their way into the world. Aren't developers supposed to be smart? The bash bug may be obscure enough that many end-users don't understand it, but what about iOS 8.0.1? How could such a big piece of software ship with such a glaring bug that broke such critical pieces of functionality?

All-new Moto X gets reviewed, decidedly not an iPhone 6

All-new Moto X gets reviewed, decidedly not an iPhone 6

While I've been working away on my iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus reviews, Phil Nickinson from Android Central has been knocking out his Moto X review. (Yes, it's kinda like new iPad or HTC One, in that there's no way to differentiate it from last year's model other than to add a year designator — 2014 — behind it, which not only doesn't solve problems but causes them. Let's stop that, shall we?). So, what does Phil think of the new Moto X (2014)?

iOS 8.0.2 - How's it working for you?

iOS 8.0.2 - How's it working for you?

Apple has released iOS 8.0.2, the rapid update to 8.0.1, itself a quick update to iOS 8, which shipped last week in advance of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6. While the full binary download for iOS 8.0.1 seems to have been fine, the incremental update file served to the new phones cause some problems, namely loss of Touch ID and cellular service. But that was then and this is now. Many people, myself included, have now updated to iOS 8.0.2 and everything seems to be running smoothly, at least for me. If you've updated to iOS 8..2, let me know — what device are you on and how's it working for you?

A macro look at the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in micro-fine detail

A macro look at the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in micro-fine detail

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are brand new takes on Apple's iconic design. They're bigger, thinner, and their edges are rounded. The camera rises now from the casing even as the screen glides seamlessly into the edge. And the screens have gone from Retina to Retina HD to even denser Retina HD. Combined, how much of a difference does all this make? To find out I grabbed a Canon 5D Mark III and an EF 100mm F2.8 L IS USM Macro lens, and I shot the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 alongside last year's iPhone 5s at every angle. Enjoy!
