Google’s answer to Siri for Android devices has been a big hit for non-iOS users. The virtual personal assistant has been rumored to be making its way to the iPhone and iPad. Today, Google launched an update to their branded search app that includes Google Now for iOS devices. Who will be better at booking appointments, Siri or Now?
There have been a lot of rumors floating around over the past few months that Apple is planning on launching a low-cost iPhone this fall. At the company’s second-quarter earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook seemed adamant that the company is focused on quality over quantity. However, nothing would be a surprise at this stage. Recently, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities sent a note to investors that Apple is also working on an iPad mini that would be priced on the low end at $199.
There are so many things that the iPad can do and so little time to tell you about them. Actually, that’s not true. There is plenty of time. That’s why we started this weekly column. Last week, we told you about a fantastic app that offers more than 150 tips on how to get the most out of your iPad.
This week, we go in-depth with the iPad’s native Notes app. You may not think much of the yellow-paper, limited-font note-taking application, but it is simple and efficient and has it where it counts.
If you are looking for the newest hotness to hit the app store, there is no better place to look than Apple’s own Editor’s Choice award. Every Monday, we review one of the apps that the elusive “Editor” has chosen. Last week, Fish Out of Water received the coveted honor. What a fun game that turned out to be.
This week, Apple spotlighted Fotonaut’s newest user-collaborative endeavor and we couldn’t be more pleased. Here at PadGadget, we love Fotonaut’s Fotopedia series of apps and their newest submission to the App Store is one of their best.

It’s Friday, and that means going back to an earlier time, a time when the amount of quarters in you pocket dictated how long you stayed at the arcade. Every week, we spotlight games and apps that remind us of our own childhood. Last week, we told you about The Bard’s Tale. While the game itself is less than a decade old, its theme harkens back to a time when role-playing games were the most valuable entertainment on your computer.

It really ticked-off Amazon when Apple launched the iPad in 2010. Do you remember all of those Kindle commercials that compared it to Apple’s new tablet? The comparison was silly. The original Kindle was nothing more than an e-reader, while the iPad was a mini computer with a touch screen. Ever since that fateful day, Amazon has been trying to compete with Apple.
First, the retail giant created a music-listening cloud service to compete with iTunes. Then, they actually made a tablet that legitimately competes with the iPad. The Kindle Fire was so successful that Apple launched a smaller-sized tablet to the market, something the company’s former CEO vowed never to do.
The short answer is, “no.” During Apple’s quarterly earnings call on April 23, CEO Tim Cook made it clear that we wouldn’t be seeing any new products until the fall. The real question is, can you wait until October, or even November, for a new iPad?
Based on rumors mixed with official information, it is highly likely that the fifth-generation iPad will be on store shelves this fall. From leaked photos claiming to be iPad parts, we can predict that it will look like a bigger version of the iPad mini in most respects.
