Flipboard is still one of my favorite news reading apps on the iPhone. I still like the beautiful design, the publication based styles, the smoothness, the flips. Flipboard offered its own curated categories that made it easy to check out top news for something like Technology or Politics. You could also add your own sources and turn them into a magazine. Now, with the Flipboard 4.0 update, Flipboard is adding Smart Magazines.
How to use iPhone and iPad
It’s possible that you accidentally lost your music collection on your PC, or your PC itself and now your iPhone, iPad or iPod is the only place where your entire music library lives. But iOS is a closed system, there’s no way to just share your songs from the music library. And if it’s someone else’s Mac, you can’t sync using iTunes either.
Ever since Instagram launched live videos, it has been trying to hound users to get on board with the idea. Whenever anyone you follow starts a live video, you get a push notification about it.
Google Voice is a free service that lets you make phone calls and send text messages tied from your Google account. It uses Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology just like Skype and hooks you up with your own new phone number. The perk of this is being able to easily share your Google Voice number with strangers or in a workplace environment while keeping your personal number tied to your wireless carrier just for yourself.
By now, you must be familiar with the long press action in iOS. Like when you tap and hold on an app icon and they all start to jiggle. When you press harder on the screen (don’t worry, you’re not going to break anything), you’ll engage 3D Touch. You’ll know because one, there will be a vibration feedback on the screen. Second, something will happen on screen.
Update: iOS 10.2 Yalu jailbreak now supports all 64-bit devices, except iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Luca Todesco has finally released the latest build of the Yalu jailbreak with support for iOS 10.2. The jailbreak is unstable and supports a fairly limited set of iOS devices such as iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE and iPad Pro.
Setapp is a new alternative Mac app store from MacPaw. Setapp wants to be Netflix for Mac apps and that should basically tell you all you need to know. You get access to over 60 pro-Mac apps, with new apps being added periodically and all you pay is $9.99/month. That’s it. Updates are included. Apps don’t require a constant internet connection to work. You get your first month for free, no credit card required.
Now that the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak is readily available, there are still a number of popular tweaks that haven’t been updated for iOS 10. One example is VirtualHome which allows you to make use of the Touch ID fingerprint sensor as the Home button.
If you’ve had an iPhone since the early years of the App Store, you might notice the screenshots have changed over time. Apps used to have basic, plain screenshots that anyone could capture, but they’ve evolved for many developers into promotional masterpieces. Developers photoshop the screenshots into an iPhone or iPad, add text and gradients, and really take advantage of a user’s natural draw to solid graphics.
iPhone has an amazing camera. It’s no secret we take hundreds of photos when we’re on a trip or when we meet people. But most of the time, they just end up on our iPhone, collecting dust. Maybe you select some photos and send them to your friends using WhatsApp or email. But that’s a pretty one-sided interaction.
