New APIs in Android Lollipop bring capabilities similar to iOS 7’s iBeacons, allowing your device to interact with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices. Apple’s iBeacons are used for location-aware apps. But In Google’s version, the APIs are aimed mainly at advertising-oriented beacons, such as to accept messages as you walk a mall or store. (Remember: Google’s business is about data mining to sell ads, so using BLE as a marketing technology makes perfect sense for Android.) But they can also be used for less-intrusive purposes, such as triggering door locks.

Apple will also continue to sell the original iPad Air from last year (in 16GB or 32GB versions). The original iPad Air is virtually identical in features to the smaller iPad mini 2, apart from having a higher quality display, albeit at the same Retina display resolution.

According to AndroidPolice, the first OTA update will be released on the 3rd of November, but only for the Wi-Fi versions of the 2012 and 2013 Nexus 7, and Nexus 10. The Nexus 5 and two-year-old Nexus 4 will have to wait, as Wi-Fi and cellular devices take a little longer to develop updates for. Google seemingly confirmed that date in a note to app developers, revealing that the Lollipop software development kit (SDK) was available and that they could start testing their apps or publishing them to the Google Play store. It closed by saying consumers would get their first lick of Lollipop on the 3rd of November.

Press really impresses with its design, as it really gets the app out of the way so you can focus on reading. Also, where Feedly has seemingly thrown in the kitchen sink with features, Press takes the minimalist path.

Apple’s efforts to create a rich ecosystem of iPad apps deliver a strong differentiating feature over the large number of Android tablets that are designed to largely run stretched smartphone apps, or the hybrid tablet or 2-1 netbook PC devices that are intended to run Windows desktop apps—titles that aren’t really designed to work well on a tablet scale.

Google has touted that Android Lollipop will enable encryption by default, so it’ll be hard for cyber criminals and government spies to access your information. That’s supposed to bring Android to par with iOS, which has had encryption on by default since 2010’s iOS 4.2.

Microsoft has another reason to celebrate as the number of apps available for download from the Windows Phone Store has reached a new milestone. More than 300,000 apps have already been developed and approved for the Windows Phone platform that can run on smartphones and tablets as of June 2014.

I am very excited about this new feature on the App Store, it really opens a wide array of AAA titles that can finally be added to the site. Developers can benefit by being able to tap into the largest Canadian App store. But really, when it comes down right to it, It’s the users that really benefit the most! A whole new world of content is available to them that used to be exclusively available only on Google Play.

And for game makers, knowing that a certain number of players had already committed to a certain length of gameplay might make planning the resources for future game updates a more exact science. At a zero price point, acquiring users is easier but keeping them — especially in a casual game — is tough.

Utterly shameful. Real people, many of them children, are dying in Gaza. Many of those who haven’t been killed face life with debilitating injuries, bereavement and without homes. Their suffering is as real as yours or mine, and to make light of it like this speaks of your essential failure as a human. Shame on the creators of this game, and those who ‘play’ it.

The Windows Phone Store is growing at a fast rate but it’s interesting to see how it will reach the million-apps mark like the iOS store and the Play Store. It seems Microsoft’s call for developers and give them cash rewards have succeeded. Aside from the rewards, Microsoft also launched an incentive program for Unity developers to bring games to the Windows Phone mobile OS.

Many of the top Android app stores such as 1Mobile and Getjar do not allow developers to upload data files. Amazon does allow people to upload OBB files but makes them self-host them, which can amount to hefty data costs. This puts us in a very unique position among all of the other Android App Stores out there.

Como suele ocurrir con Amazon, no todas están al mismo nivel de calidad. Pero, por contra, son 100 euros de ahorro sumándolas todas, siendo una buena oportunidad para renovar nuestras aplicaciones y juegos. Ya sabéis que podréis instalarlas en vuestro dispositivo Android sea o no un Kindle, debiendo instalar primero su tienda de apps siguiendo el tutorial de la propia Amazon. Y debiendo mantenerla instalada siempre que deseéis utilizar las apps gratis, algo que puede llegar a ser un inconveniente.

Ya estamos más que acostumbrados a las apps gratis que ofertan en la Amazon AppStore, siendo una buena oportunidad diaria de equipar nuestro móvil o tablet sin coste. Y de vez en cuando aún es mejor esta oferta ya que, como ocurre actualmente, Amazon lanza una colección de aplicaciones y juegos a 0 euros por un motivo concreto. Y como seguro que el culo os olerá a playa, estando a punto de entrar en agosto… En la Amazon AppStore podréis adquirir hasta 100 euros en apps gratis acudiendo a la tienda entre este jueves 31 de julio y mañana viernes 1 de agosto, disponiendo de 29 apps y juegos con una calidad y precio diverso que se pueden adquirir en bloque. Una a una o yendo a por las 29: las hay merecen mucho la pena.

Google has already said it would implement several of the changes starting at the end of September. For instance, it won’t use the word “free” for in-app purchase games; it’ll come up with targeted guidelines for games to prevent encouragement of children to buy items; and will implement measures to monitor breaches of EU law.

These controls go far beyond the features of others in the industry. But we are always working to strengthen the protections we have in place, and we’re adding great new features with iOS 8, such as Ask to Buy, giving parents even more control over what their kids can buy on the App Store.

Podéis irlas añadiendo a vuestra cuenta con 1-Click sin necesidad de tener instalada en el móvil la Amazon AppStore. Así ya las tendréis compradas para siempre sin haber gastado un euro, pudiendo instalarlas cuando las necesitéis. Ya estaréis acumulando una buena lista, seguro.

Apple takes great pride in leading the industry in parental controls that are incredibly easy to use and help ensure a great experience for parents and children on the App Store. The parental controls in iOS are strong, intuitive and customizable. And over the last year we made sure any app which enables customers to make in-app purchases is clearly marked. We’ve also created a Kids Section on the App Store with even stronger protections to cover apps designed for children younger than 13.

International television network A&E has enabled live streaming for two of its most popular channels — A&E and History — through their apps for Apple’s iPad. Users will still be able to access on-demand content including clips and full episodes of past shows.

A cable subscription is required to watch the channels’ live streams. Users will need to authenticate with their cable company, and A&E says the streams are only available to viewers in the United States for now.

The more you use Office on your desktop or laptop, and the closer your ties to Microsoft’s ecosystem, the more you’ll love Office on your iPad. Just remember: it’s a companion to the full-blown Office apps, not a replacement for them.

Analyst Sterne Agee said the game will bring in $30 million in revenue this year, even though it’s available free of charge in the App Store, Business Insider reports. Like other fermium games, Hearthstone comes with in-app purchases which will give users faster access to additional cards – card packs can be purchased using gold won in-game following battles, and after completing quests.

Word, Excel, PowerPoint for iPad are free to download – Microsoft says it’s been downloaded more than 12 million times – but requires an Office 365 subscription (starting from $89/year) to edit, create and save documents.

Sadly, Word hits a wall if you want to print anything: none of the Office for iPad apps work with Apple’s AirPrint wireless printing technology. This is a crippling Achilles heel to an otherwise towering app.

Fiksu wanted to figure how if “popularity” as determined by download volume was having any impact on search results, so it began testing App Store search following the removal of the viral hit Flappy Bird from iTunes. Every day after Flappy Bird’s disappearance, Fiksu ran a search for the phrase “flappy bird” and then matched the results to the app’s then-current overall chart rankings. These chart rankings are based on recent download volume, among other things.

Gameloft explains in the app’s release notes: “New York is under threat from a city-wide gang war and only Spider-Man can stop it! Standing in his way are Electro and other nefarious villains. Can Spider-Man restore order and safety to the Big Apple?!”

In the U.S., for example, Google Play revenue grew approximately 55% quarter-over-quarter, taking the country past South Korea (home to Samsung and LG), and second place on the Market Index since Q1 2013. Now it’s number three, with Japan (#1) and the U.S. (#2) ahead. The change indicates that stateside Android users may be slowly warming up to the notion of paying for apps and other in-app purchases, specifically games, like category leader Clash of Clans, for instance.

What can be said for sure, however, is that an app’s search position will matter more as the store grows in size, and as queries become increasingly sophisticated thanks to recent App Store improvements, like the newly added related search suggestions, for example, and other changes yet to come.

The official iOS adaptation of the “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” movie promises mobile gamers an open-world adventure full to the brim with “non-stop action,” and charges players with helping the Marvel hero face his greatest challenge yet.

Search results are generally understood to be calculated by three key metrics: the company name, an app’s title, and the 100-character meta-keywords provided within iTunes Connect by the app’s publisher. But Fiksu says it found that download volume, as measured by Category rankings, appears to also have a strong impact on search results ranking.

You may also need a means of editing photos and other graphics files in standard formats such as Jpeg or Png. Here, we’re not concerned with compatibility with particular Windows software, but with the ability to import and export in the necessary formats and the provision of adequate functionality. As with Windows, a wide range of Android apps is available for photo editing.

First up is the BlueStacks App Player which it’s free from www.bluestacks.com. As the name suggests, this package allows you to run Android apps on your Windows machine but it’s not a full Android emulator so you won’t get the full Android experience.

However, unlike some similar packages, BlueStacks includes Google Play so you can search for and install apps in just the same way as with a true Android phone or tablet. As a beta release, it’s probably not reasonable to expect it to be perfect and we did, indeed, experience a few teething problems.

Yahoo News Digest: Designed to make your news-reading experience easy and painless. Yahoo News Digest finds the best and most important news and creates news digests, delivering them to you twice a day. Perfect for you to stay up-to-date with what’s important if you’re short on time. [Free]

Type Machine: Have you ever been in the middle of typing something in your phone, only for it to cock up and force you to start over? I know I have. Type Machine will make a backup of everything you type, so that if you do lose it, there’s a backup for you to go back to. It’s customisable, so you can tell it to not record for specific apps, and it all runs in the background so you won’t even know it’s doing its magic. [£1.24]

Not only that, but the screen section can then be used as a tablet by someone else, at the same time. Needless to say, buying two computers in one doesn’t come cheap and, even then, without some of the solutions we’ve seen elsewhere in this article, it doesn’t allow you to run Android apps under Windows and Windows software under Android. With a street price of £899, you’d probably be better off buying a separate Android device and a laptop at the moment. However, if this type of computer really takes off, expect prices to tumble. What’s more, if it also provides a means of the Android and Windows elements interacting with each other, with the ability to share software between the two platforms, we think manufacturers will be onto a winner.

Georg Petschnigg, co-founder and CEO of FiftyThree Inc. and co-creator of the sketching application “Paper,” said in a blog post that his company’s program — launched in 2012 and named IPad App of the Year — had priority to use the name.

Their app builder software can provide perfect apps for businesses of all sorts or whichever industry they belong to. Apart from an easy and swift process to create apps, it also allows businesses to manage their native apps for varied brands of smart phones and the operating systems. The apps can provide a range of functionalities from sending messages, coupons and special offers to let the customers enjoy the benefits of the offerings.

They not only help the customers to just create apps or update the information, they also assist them to improve the app with customized features specifically designed for their kind of business. If one is looking to make the most of this mobile marketing technique through apps, then Android App Creator from Appsentra can let the business reach every android smart phone in the locality.

Apps are the most recent marketing tools for businesses which are cost-friendly and are cosmopolitan in reach. Appsentra provides the easiest and completely uncomplicated way to create beautiful and high on feature mobile apps which can be updated in real time with no delays. Their Mobile App Maker Software offers the highest security standards and makes sure that clients enjoy a great mobile commerce experience and can get the latest offerings in quick time.

FiftyThree wants Facebook to come up with a new name for its standalone iPhone app, although that might be difficult given the exposure and promotion that’s already been created for its release in the App Store later day.

“We think Facebook can apply the same degree of thought they put into the app into building a brand name of their own. An app about stories shouldn’t start with someone else’s story. Facebook should stop using our brand name.”

9. Get a few good apps. There are tons of options, obviously, and tons of use cases, but I like the Kindle App for e-reading, Flipboard for news, YouTube/Netflix/Hulu Plus, Pages for writing, Google Maps as a must-have Apple Maps replacement, Evernote for general note-taking, and Plants vs. Zombies, Ticket to Ride, and Angry Birds Space as must-have first-day games (read our must-have games list for more ideas). Even better, ask friends who use an iPad what they’re using.

3. Find your other free(ish) stuff. I bet you have plenty of grandfathered-in “free” content that’s ready to go on your iPad — free because you already paid for it elsewhere. First, go to your iTunes or App Store apps and browse under “purchased” (it’s usually hidden away under the “More” tab, or it’s under “Updates” in the App Store). It’s an ugly way to browse what you’ve already bought, but make sure you stock up on any iPhone apps you already own that are universal for iPad, and in iTunes download music, movies, and books you already have.

We use our PadGadget Apps Tracker to constantly monitor the App Store to find the biggest price changes on iPad apps. Our editorial team goes through the data, picks the best deals on the most interesting apps and then brings them to you on a regular basis. All app prices are checked at the time of posting but prices are subject to change without notice. When developers put their apps on sale it’s usually for a very limited time, often 24 hours or less, so be sure to check pricing on iTunes before making a purchase.

10. Get a good case. Or a bag. The iPad just comes with a Lightning cable for syncing and charging, nothing more. You need some sort of protection. Apple’s own Smart Cover is a clever multi-use accessory that protects the screen, but not the back. If you’re getting an Apple-made accessory, I prefer the new leather Smart Case, but it’s more expensive. If you’re a large-iPad owner, consider something that docks easily with a keyboard — check out some keyboard cases here. For the Mini, a booklike folio cover feels best. And don’t go overboard with specialty bags; something with separate pockets and padding and can still hold other stuff works best. Read my advice on that from a year ago, most of which still holds true now.

2. Get your free iWork and iLife apps. iPhone, iPod and iPad buyers now get a suite of Apple productivity and media-creation apps for free that used to collectively cost a fair amount of money. Definitely download these — in fact, when you’re setting up your iPad for the first time, you’re prompted to begin downloading all the free Apple-created software. All the apps are universal, so if you got them already by buying a new iPhone, you’ll be able to redownload the iPad versions for free via your Already Purchased apps on the App Store if you bought a used iPad. Pages, Numbers and Keynote are very good word processing, spreadsheet and presentation-creation apps, and they even sync via iCloud and to Macs that own these apps in OSX Mavericks. There’s no reason not to use them. iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand are similarly good photo editing, video editing and music creation tools. Other apps match the features of iPhoto, but few solutions out there can beat iMovie or GarageBand. All of these have been graphically redesigned for iOS 7.

6. Tweak your notifications and privacy. Every app likes to scream out all its information all the time via banners and other annoying pop-ups on your home screen. You can override this by going to Notifications and unchecking all the various notifications options. There are many, but I’d suggest removing them all for apps you don’t consider essential. Make sure banners are off and the notifications don’t appear in the lock screen, and you should find yourself less pestered. Similarly, make sure you examine your Privacy settings, and deactivate (or activate) any location or information sharing you’d like on certain apps. You may not want your photos to be geotagged on social networks.

My biggest complaint with the original iPad Mini was its weak display. Go ahead. Call me a snoot. But after years of living in a pixel-free world, the old iPad Mini’s screen looked too grainy for me to properly enjoy it. It’s the primary reason why I thought Google’s new Nexus 7 was better than the iPad Mini this summer.

The iPad’s biggest advantage over the competition is its app selection. As good as its two biggest rivals, the Kindle Fire HDX and Nexus 7, may be, those devices simply don’t have as many good tablet-optimized apps as the iPad does. The Google Play Store for Android apps is full of great software, but most of it is designed for smaller screen smartphones. Developers are much more active on the iPad, which means you can get versions of your favorite apps that take full advantage of 8-inch+ screens.

Hark, Leonard Read fans! Take heart, disillusioned entrepreneurs! The iPad is a wonder of capitalism just like the pencil. And contrasting a pencil – seemingly simple, but used far less in our digital age – with an iPad reminds us that the collaboration that made possible the manufacture of old tools still works the same way today.

Watching video on the iPad Air is also a noticeable improvement from doing so on smaller displays. The screen size isn’t much bigger, but as it is with reading ebooks, it’s big enough to make a world of difference.

This past week I’ve been using the iPad Air with the ZAGGkeys Folio keyboard almost exclusively for my work, and it’s been great. The combo is as thin as can be, and the combined weight is very light. I can slip it into a pocket on almost any bag without noticing it when I carry it around.

An iPad and a pencil aren’t that different, after all. As the ad notes, both can “start a poem or finish a symphony;” both are “extremely simple and yet extremely powerful.” And just as importantly, the process of making each of these items hinges on the expertise of many parties, working independently of one another to advance their own interests.

Ron Amadeo of Ars Technica wrote a great story last month about how Google is taking back control of Android at the expense of the software’s open source roots. Slowly, Google is ceasing development on the open source versions of key apps, such as the software keyboard and the web browser, while building up proprietary apps such as Google Keyboard and Chrome. All these apps are then licensed to phone makers as a package deal. If you’re Samsung, you can’t include Google’s app store without also including Google’s search app and web browser. This is how Google ensures that its services are available on all major Android phones.

The problem for Google is that it’s still easy for phone makers to circumvent those services. Samsung, for instance, has simply created its own versions of most Android core functions and hidden the Google stuff away by default. It makes for bloated software, but it’s the only way Samsung can try to establish its own non-Google services.

Taiwan led the charge, with 89 percent of revenue from Android devices coming from games, in contrast to 84 percent on an iPhone or iPad. Korea ranked second in combined revenue share across the two platforms – Distimo believes that a whopping 94 percent of revenue in the Google Play store was generated by games last month.

One of the most talked-about Android 4.4 features is its ability to run on low-end phones. While this matters little to users in developed countries, it’s a sign that Android updates–the ones named after desserts–are becoming more about under-the-hood changes and subtle design tweaks. All the bigger features are being served on the side.

But just looking back to the release notes for Android 4.0 from two years ago, you can see how much things have changed. Features like the redesigned home screen, resizeable widgets, improved keyboard and better voice search–none of them would require a full Android update today. You’d just update their respective apps, or the Google Home launcher itself, through the app store.

Previously exclusive to BlackBerry smartphones, BBM is now available as a free
download in Google Play and the App Store. Android smartphones must be
running Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean (Android 4.x) and iPhones must be
running iOS 6 and iOS 7.
