Although Twitter has its own app that is available for free, third-party apps have been very popular, even at a price. One of the most popular, some would say the most popular, is Tweetbot. The app’s creator has been working for months on updating all of its apps, to be compatible with iOS 7. Today, Tweetbot 3 for iPhone and iPod touch has been given the iOS 7 redesign. It is just a matter of time before the company unveils the new iPad version.

Welcome back to another edition of our weekly retro and classic games column. Flashback Friday means a lot of things to a lot of people. For us, it means games from the early 1980s all the way through to the early 1990s. We love to talk about games from our childhood. Last week, we spotlighted the remake of the Ultima IV classic, Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar.
When Apple announces a new product, the excitement and fervor always sends me spinning. I usually end every keynote with the thought, “I want that.” After a few hours, I usually come down off of the high and realize that I don’t need it, even if I do want it. After a few days, I might decide not to buy it at all. The iPad Air passed all of my stages and is still on my want list. If you are thinking about upgrading, read Sam’s reasons for why he isn’t and then read my reasons for why I am.
Only hours after Apple announced the new iPad Air on Tuesday, case makers were already sending out press releases to unveil their new line of products to fit your new tablet. This is only the “tip of the iceberg,” as the saying goes. There will be many more iPad Air products in the future. Today, we’ve got a roundup of some of that will be available the same day as Apple’s new iPad, or at least within a few weeks after.
On Tuesday, Apple unveiled the all-new, lighter, thinner iPad Air. The tablet has been redesigned to look more like the iPad mini, but with the same 9.7-inch screen. To generate interest and show of the tablet’s new design, Apple has launched two new commercials.
Welcome back to our weekly music column. We are huge fans of music around here. Many of us are even musicians of one kind or another. Each week, we track down interesting apps and accessories that we think musicians and fans of music will enjoy. Last week, we had a hands-on review of IK Multimedia’s new iRig Pro.

This week, we want to talk about the brand new update to Apple’s music app, GarageBand. After this week’s big event, Apple launched an updated to GarageBand that added a few new features to make sharing your music easier than ever.
Today on Twitter, T-Mobile shook the tablet market with a very unique offer. Instead of purchasing your tablet for $100 discount plus a monthly fee for two years, the newest carrier to the iPad Air is offering a payment plan that starts at Zero down with 200 MB of data for free. They are calling this campaign, “Tablets Un-leased.”
With yesterday’s big announcement from Apple, there is a new size of iPad in town. The iPad Air is significantly thinner in width and height, which means case makers have a new line of products to create. Luckily, many companies have already started production on properly sized accessories for the iPad Air. Belkin and Griffin have just announced updates to their most popular cases to fit Apple’s fifth-generation iPad.
Yesterday, Apple unveiled the newest version of the iPad and iPad mini. The larger sized tablet is now so much smaller and lighter than its predecessor that the company had to give it a new name, iPad Air. The 7.9-inch iPad mini has finally been given a Retina display screen. Both new models will be available from a variety of carriers starting Friday, Nov. 1. We’ve got some information to help you decide what plan you’d like to go with.
