There are lots of cool app for your cool iOS devices. Vern Seward points out three that you'll want in this week's Free on iTunes. Notable, Sega: Go Dance, and Smash Hit.
"If it's too loud, you're too old" doesn't mean much if what you're listening to is distorted and fuzzy. Fortunately, IK Multimedia's new iLoud mobile monitor (you can call it a speaker) delivers a crystal clear, blow-the-door-off-the-hinges output and a built-in feature that has a special appeal to Contributing Editor Chuck La Tournous and other iRig-loving musicians.
Get ready for iOS 7.1, because if the sources talking with Daring Fireball's John Gruber are right, it's coming before next week. Word on the street is SXSW iTunes Festival show streaming requires the new version of iOS, and since the event starts on March 10, Apple has only days to get the update on user's iPhones and iPads.
The "Today" view in iOS 7's Notification Center can be pretty useful. It tells you the current date, weather conditions, upcoming appointments, and even how your stocks are doing. But what if you don't want one or more of these things in your "Today" list? Fortunately there's a way to customize it and it's pretty easy.
Got a question? Vern Seward points out 3 free iOS apps that will help you find the answer in this week's Free on iTunes. Duck Duck Go, Merlin Bird ID, and Learnist.
The new Prodigy case for iPad Air from ZooGue offers good protection, a pebbled surface for good grip, a choice of six landscape viewing angles, and a magnetic sleep/wake and secure magnetic closure. This folio case is sturdy but not especially light compared to others TMO has tested.
Apple has begun certifying devices for the "iBeacon" mark under its MFi ("Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad") licensing program. Manufacturers can now apply to use Apple's iBeacon logo on devices that meet the company's standards.
iOS updates can pose problems for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch owners that like to jailbreak their devices. The big question with the release of iOS 7.0.6 is whether or not it's possible to perform an untethered jailbreak. The answer is yes, but you'll have to dive under the hood and make some changes to the jailbreak utility.
Science can be fun and Vern Seward pooints out 3 free iOS apps that proves it in this week's Free on iTunes, Science Today, Dinosaurs:American Museum of Natural History, and Pocket Penguins.
Apple added another story to its "Your Verse" series showing how people use their iPads in inspirational ways. The new story shows how Adrian Ballinger and Emily Harrington use their iPad as a critical part of their expeditions to climb the world's highest mountains.
