Today iOS 6.1 Beta 2 was seeded to developers and there is surprising little new to talk about. Which makes me think iOS 6.1 is going to focus on stability and performance instead of new features.
MacPhun, the folks who brought us PhotoStudio and ColorStrokes for iPhone—and other great photo apps‚ have just released ColorStrokes HD for iPad. I’ve had a chance to play with it and…yeah it’s fun. Really fun, really easy, really awesome. The folks at MacPhun have also given us three codes to giveaway to you! How about that! Let me show how it works and the code giveaway info will be at the end of the post.
Google Search for iOS recently added a Siri-like voice search to their app so folks have been testing it against Siri for speed, accuracy, and the inevitable humor factor. Gizmodo posted a video with a head-to-head comparison last week, pretty interesting stuff where the apps both hit and miss.
The new Apple-powered Maps app ushered in with iOS 6 might look awesome (the 3D view is cool), but as a mapping app it leaves a lot to be desired. It’s a real step back for Apple, which is why we’ve all been hoping that Google will release a native version of Google Maps for iOS. But there are fears that Apple might get in the way of that.
