iOS: One of the best parts of any science-fiction game or movie are those ominous tones that suggest a conversation or discovery is about to head south—a quintessential part of the soundtrack that adds a lot of atmosphere (and tension) to an experience. And now, thanks to an open-source iOS app, you can make your own…
iOS: We all get a lot of stuff in the mail these days. While you can sign up for all kinds of package-tracking services from the major shipping carriers, including individual tracking updates if you only care about an occasional package that’s on the way, I find it easiest to use an app like Arrive to keep track of…
Stealth horror game Hello Neighbor puts you at odds with the creepy next-door neighbor, tasking you with sneaking in to his house to find his secrets while you avoid getting found out. Just one day before the game is slated to launch on PS4 and Switch (it originally came out for Xbox and PC), it's available on mobile platforms.
PUBG Mobile just got some spicier gameplay, whether you're just looking for a quick fix or striving for glory. Both Android and iOS versions of the game now include War Mode, which ditches the familiar battle royale in favor of a deathmatch-style experience where respawns are available and kill counts are the key to victory. At the same time, competitive players are getting their fill with clan support (including insignia, missions and a Clan Shop).
Battery issues are one of the more headache-inducing problems you’ll ever deal with as an iPhone owner. Whether it’s Apple’s alleged planned obsolescence or just the simple physics of your iPhone’s battery—it won’t last forever—there will come a time when you can’t make it through the day on a single charge. But…
Some Sonos speakers are finally getting support for Apple’s latest wireless streaming technology, AirPlay 2. Whether you’re want to blast your favorite Netflix movies or rock out around your house, this update lets you connect your speakers to your iOS devices. Here’s how to get started:
It's never been entirely clear why Adobe never entirely embraced the iPad given its increasing prominence in the creative industries. The company has launched several apps for the slate, but none as full-featured as the full-fat, desktop version of Photoshop. That's now set to change, according to sources familiar with the matter, who have told Bloomberg that Adobe is going all in on the slate.
Google is expanding the reach of Gboard's Morse code support. The search firm has introduced the accessibility-focused keyboard to Gboard for iOS, making communication easier for iPhone and iPad owners with limited motion. As before, it replaces the usual letters with giant dot and dash buttons and offers text suggestions that include the Morse code for a given word. If you're not sure how to write, don't worry -- Google is providing some help on that front as well.
“Ahh-ha!” you think to yourself. “Apple has finally made it impossible for the police to see what’s on my confiscated iPhone.”
So you’re running out of space on your iPhone. Perhaps you’ve been unable to download that new movie you purchased to your device because there’s no room. Maybe your iPhone has popped up the dreaded “Storage Almost Full” warning. However you were notified that you were running low on space is irrelevant: Your iPhone…
At WWDC, Apple pitched Shortcuts as a way to ”take advantage of the power of apps” and “expose quick actions to Siri.” These will be suggested by the OS, can be given unique voice commands and will even be customizable with a dedicated Shortcuts app.
But to ignore Shortcuts would be missing out on the bigger picture. Apple’s strengths have always been the device ecosystem and the apps that run on them.
With Shortcuts, both play a major role in how Siri
When it comes to product releases, Apple may be secretive but it’s also predictable. Software announcements come in the spring during WWDC (as was the case this year) and hardware typically comes in the fall. A new rumor, fueled by filings made with the Eurasian Economic Commission, has sparked some speculation of a…
Apple Maps has come a long way since the fiasco when it first launched, but there's no question that there's room for improvement. It just isn't as robust as Google Maps, which has the luxury of both a years-long head start and complete control over the mapping process. And Apple knows it. In an interview with TechCrunch, the company's Eddy Cue has revealed plans to revamp Maps using its own data set rather than the current piecemeal approach, which has relied on info from the likes of OpenStreetMap and TomTom. The new technique promises not only greater mp accuracy and detail, but faster updates that take days rather than months.
The AudioKit Synth One is a professional-level open-source synthesizer for your iPad. It has features that match or even rival the ones on iOS synths from Korg, Electro-Harmonix and Moog, which can run upwards of $25. This one, however, was created by a team of more than 100 volunteers around the world, so you won't have to pay a cent for it now or ever.

iOS: Throughout the day, I always know I should be doing things to better my health and overall disposition: standing at regular intervals, drinking lots of water, telling my friends they are great and we should hang out, et cetera. And while these thoughts hit me on occasion, they’re never enough to create a regular…
You’ve enrolled in Apple’s public beta program for iOS, you’ve downloaded and installed the new iOS 12 public beta, and your iPhone or iPad has finally reset with the latest version of apple’s mobile OS. You type in your PIN, authenticate into your device, and... now what? Where do you even start?
Apple and education have been synonymous for awhile, and this morning the Cupertino company reiterated that relationship by releasing Schoolwork. The free app suite was originally announced at an education-focused event in Chicago, and now, three months later Apple is ready to let teachers kick the tires.
When it comes to giving new apps a try, I’m a pretty easy sell. I’ll download almost any app from the App Store someone has convinced me has a use and give it a test drive. However, once that test drive is over I’m not good at taking the time to delete the apps that don’t quite make the cut. The result? My phone is…
