Korea Times reported that Samsung has joined a growing chorus of companies who want a peak at the source code for iOS. Apple says “that’ insane”, but eventually Apple might have to comply with the requestâ€”if a court orders them to.
One of the main selling points for BlackBerry in the enterprise has been BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Server). BES allowed administrators manage the entire company’s pool of BlackBerry devices through one central panel. Ahead of the official launch of the BlackBerry 10 in a week, RIM has taken the wraps off the next version of BES, BES 10 which includes continued support for Android and iOS devices.
VisionMobile has released their 2013 developer platform, tools, and economics report and the results of the survey aren’t too surprising. Developers target iOS first, Android next, and Blackberry is holding onto third place. Windows phone is stuck in a “wait and see” pattern, but HTML is still in the running for its cross-platform code.
Earlier this week we showed you how Guided Access could be used to mute notifications while in an app (for example recording a video of a demo or just wanting to be focused). Then we realized that many of you might not even know about this awesome, hidden feature in iOS 6 that you can use to improve game play or just control how an app is being used.
My first “smartphone” was a Blackberry that allowed me to tether my laptop to it for Internet access. That Blackberry was replaced by a Curve, which while I loved for sending emails, sucked for pretty much anything else. I didn’t get an iPhone until the iPhone 4 a few years ago and I do love my iOS. I’m not stupid though. I’ve made the jump from Mac to Windows to Mac as necessity deemed right. I’ve played with lots of other OSes, admittedly I haven’t used a newer Android device, and I like to give credit where credit is due. Which is why I have to say: Apple needs to knock iOS 7 out of the park.
The bug in the automatic Do Not Disturb function in iOS 6 has caused equal amounts of frustration and chuckles (since Apple aired a commercial highlighting the feature the day the bug hit us all), but today some developers have shed some light on why the bug is happening in the first place. And it all comes down to capital letters.
Lots of sites are lookingÂ backÂ at 2012 to review the year gone by, but while there is no doubt it’s been a pretty exciting year, I thought I’d start with a look at the year to come and make a few arm waving predictions about what we might see. Well, a few arm waving predictions and a good number of pretty sure bets as well.
