Google+ iPhone web app gallery

Wondering why Google+ looks, well, uncharacteristically good for a Google product? Turn out Andy Hertzfeld, an former Apple design guru going back to the days of the original Mac, has been given the freedom to exercise his creative genius on the new Google+ project. No wonder it has such a simple, useful -- dare we say elegant -- look and feel to it.

Hertzfeld credits some of his work done on the project to Apple, saying that Apple's reign on the mobile industry may have had "A little bit to do" with his creative design into the project of Google+.

iPhone patent applications reveal better Find My iPhone, social matching, and a way to stop users from recording concerts(?!) [Patent Roundup]

A few interesting patent applications from Apple have recently surfaced, showing they have some bold ideas surrounding Find My iPhone, social-matching, and a way to lock the camera so we can't make bootleg concert recordings and plaster them on YouTube (?!).

Reminder: Apple, like any big company, routinely patents just about anything and everything they dream up, and there's no way to know when, or if, they'll use any them in actual, shipping products. Still, it's interesting to see what they're working on deep inside the secret Cupertino labs...

Follow on after the break for the roundup!

    Daily Tip: How to join Apple's iOS dev program and legitimately test iOS 5 beta

    Just heard about Apple's shiny new iOS 5 beta and curious how you can test it out early? Unfortunately, a bunch of shady characters will no doubt pop up offering to sell early access to unsuspecting users, often leaving them high and dry when betas expire. Luckily, Apple provides the betas directly to anyone signed up for their paid iOS developers program (not the free ones, sorry). Sure it costs $99 a year, but it gives you a year of beta access for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Apple TV, iTunes, Xcode, etc. and leaves you in control of your own destiny when it comes to updating.

    If you're thinking about developing for iOS 5 and want to test it out, follow on after the break and we'll tell you how!

    When can you get iOS 5 on your device? This fall!

    So when exactly will you get iOS 5 on your device? That's easy -- it'll be available this coming fall with a developer seed arriving today. And what devices will be capable of running iOS? That's another easy one as well. It'll support all the same devices as last time. For those of you who might not remember what they were last time:

    • iPhone 4
    • iPhone 3GS
    • iPad
    • iPad 2
    • iPod touch (3rd and 4th gen)

    No surprises there, everything is as was expected for iOS 5 releases. Now all we have to do is wait it out until fall rolls around.
