How to control which iPhone and iPad apps can access your Twitter and Facebook accounts

We use Facebook and Twitter for more than just talking with our virtual social communities these days. We use them to login to other sites, to comment, to register — to host our digital identity. That's why it's a good idea to check and control which iPhone and iPad apps have access to your Facebook and Twitter accounts. The best part is you don't even have to log in to Facebook or Twitter on the web. You can do it right from your iPhone or iPad!

iPad Air 2 review: Three months later

iPad Air 2 review: Three months later

The iPad Air 2 took Apple's thinnest and lightest full-sized tablet ever and made it even thinner and lighter. It also laminated the screen to make the pixels look like they were floating inside the glass, added Touch ID, and 8 megapixel iSight camera, and introduced the Apple A8X — a custom three processing core, eight graphics core chipset so powerful it made even recent ultrabooks nervous. But Apple themselves have told us technology alone isn't enough. What matters is what we can do with it, where, and how well. Back in October we did a full iPad Air 2 review. Now we're revisiting that review three months later.

Smartphone Futurology: The science behind your phone's next display

Smartphone Futurology: The science behind your phone's next display

What's next for one of your phone's most important components

Welcome to Smartphone Futurology. In this new series of science-filled articles, Mobile Nations guest contributor Shen Ye walks through current technologies in use within our phones, as well as the cutting-edge stuff still being developed in the lab. There's quite a bit of science ahead, as a lot of the future discussions are based on scientific papers with a vast amount of technical jargon, but we’ve tried to keep things as plain and simple as possible. So if you want to dive deeper into just how the guts of your phone function, this is the series for you.

A new year brings the certainty of new devices to play with, and so it’s time to look ahead at what we might see in the smartphones of the future. The first instalment in the series looked at what's new in battery tech. For the series' second part looks at what's perhaps the most important component of any device — the screen itself. On a modern mobile device, the screen acts as the main input and output device. It's the most visible part of the phone, and one of its most power-hungry components. Over the past few years we've seen screen resolutions (and sizes) reach into the stratosphere, to the point where many phones now pack 1080p displays or higher. But the future of mobile displays is about more than just size and pixel density. Read on to find out more.

Amazing indie app developers in handy list form

Graham Spencer had an idea — He asked indie app developers to say "hi!" to him on Twitter. Roughly 200 did. He used that data to create a Twitter list, but he also compiled it into a table that includes where the developer is located, what apps they make, and their Twitter handle. It's an amazing piece of work.
