Apple already had a busy day planned for Wednesday, September 17, with the release of iOS 8 under way (with a ton of new features thrown in), but now the company is also issuing updates for its first-party apps to go along with the software update.
Apple updates Beats Music, Find My iPhone and other first-party apps in conjunction with iOS 8 release
On September 9, Apple officially made the public release date for iOS 8 official: September 17. It will be a free download, which will add a wide range of new features and tweaks to your iOS-based device. But, if a new software version isn’t enough, how about a popular third-party keyboard to add to the mix?
Following today’s release of iOS 8 Golden Master to registered developers, Apple announced that it has started accepting submissions for iOS 8-ready apps from today.
Foursquare recently split itself into two apps, the main Foursquare app for discovery and a new Swarm app for check ins. The company today released version 8.0 of the Foursquare app with an all-new design and a focus on personalised recommendations for restaurants and other places.
Scribd for iPhone was updated this afternoon with a new look and other features, including a redesigned book description page, horizontal browsing from book to book in collections, streamlined library management and an all-new color palette and fonts throughout the app. The update pushes the app to version 3.6.0.
Back in May, we had told you about MonkeyParking, an app that let users make money by letting them sell their street parking spot to others when they left. The company behind the app today announced that they’d be shutting down operations in San Francisco.
Paper by FiftyThree is one of the most popular apps in the iOS App Store, thanks to its imaginative design, useful implementation of tools for creation and a slick interface that makes drawing, painting or sketching on an iPad surprisingly easy (and fun). The company’s creation was only limited by the stylus that users use, but also in part of the technology that went into the software of iOS. Thanks to the upcoming release of iOS 8, though, and changes that Apple has made under the hood, creativity and expression is about to get even easier — as long as you’ve got Pencil by FiftyThree.
