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.
We used our PadGadget Apps Tracker to find these great deals and we’ll continue to look for the best app deals as they pop-up. Some of these apps are up to 80% off, a couple are even free, so be sure to check them out because they are on sale for a limited time.
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.
Every time there is a new release from Apple we provide advice on whether or not you should consider buying the latest offering, either as a new purchase or as an upgrade. The problem for me with the announcement of the iPad Air was that it followed the presentation of the new Mac Pro, which proved there is still room for major innovation in the world of desktop computers. Sure, the iPad Air is smaller and faster but otherwise it is not that different. Let’s look at many of the selling points about the new iPads and also look at why Steve Wozniak thinks he’s going to wait.
Apple has announced that they will open stores early on iPad Air launch day. This is certainly an effort to keep people warm on a potentially cold day and not an effort to sell more iPads, because they are likely sell out of popular models no matter when the doors open. Perhaps those that come later after all of the basic models are gone will be tempted to purchase the more expensive iPad Airs that are left over.
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. Talk about a musician’s digital companion.
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.
