There are many things to do when in Singapore such as utilising its location to take short vacations to neighbouring countries in South East Asia, a feat made easier with budget airlines. Yet, while in Singapore itself, there is no greater activity than The Great Singapore Sale (GSS) which occurs yearly in this shop-till-you-drop hub.
Apple, for the first time ever has made its iOS beta open to the public. While a lot of folks simply want access to see what iOS 9 looks like, Apple wants its Public Preview members to send as much feedback and bug reporting as possible.

iPhone owners with a Mac, especially those running OS X Yosemite, can appreciate the seamless syncing of data such as text messages, documents and browser tabs between their devices via iCloud. This sharing, however, doesn’t apply if you work in a mixed environment that includes older OS X versions, Android devices, and Windows PCs. To bring a subset of these sharing options to your heterogenous setup, you should check out Pushbullet, a cross-platform syncing solution that allows you to send links, photos and more to your connected devices.
Launched in 2010, Due has been in the App Store for more than four years. During that time, the app has matured, but its core functionality as a reminders app has remained the same. This singular focus remains evident in version 2 of Due, which was launched last month.

In the wake of Google Reader’s impending demise, many RSS services have stepped forward to take its place, by offering a back-end service to gather news feeds to deliver to their existing clients.

Fear not though, there are replacements for both the client and the backend feed gathering service. We take you through the six best options for your iPhone and iPad.
The built-in camera app of the iPhone does a good job. We have tap to focus and intelligent exposure. If you want to focus manually and change exposure levels, then you’re out of luck. A camera app, which includes those features, could understandably end up with a pretty complicated user interface. Fortunately, that isn’t the case with Analog Camera, from the makers of the popular to-do app Clear. Manual focusing and exposure levels are only a few swipes away.
