BBM for Android delayed just as BBM for iPhone starts rollout in New Zealand

without comments

image

BlackBerry may be falling faster than a suicide jumper, but that hasn’t stopped the company from going full steam ahead with its cross platform BlackBerry Messenger applications.

The BBM for Android application has been delayed, despite being supposed to hit about an hour ago. No reason were given for the delay, but there has been plenty of fake applications hitting the Play Store.

While Android users eagerly await BlackBerry Messenger for Android to go live, BlackBerry Messenger for iPhone has begun rolling out to users in New Zealand, where it is tomorrow already. BBM for Android has seemingly been pulled due to notification problems, but that hasn’t stopped the app’s APK from leaking, much to the delight of a multitude of users. BBM for iPhone has however begun rolling out at 12:01AM tomorrow as the time is reached in the certain time zones. Oh the irony.

BBM has long been an icon in the instant messaging market, but has lost a huge market share as users departed from the company’s mobile platforms in Cavour of the likes of Android and iOS.

without comments

iOS 7 is undoubtedly the best version of iOS to date and features a vast amount of improvements, including a redesigned user interface, but some users have met the new update with a lot of skepticism and criticism, which is why we’re showing you how to downgrade back to iOS 6 from iOS 7 while there is still time.

The folks over at iDeviceHelpus has created this nifty video showing you just how to easily downgrade back to iOS 6 from iOS 7. Like many first times, the new iOS 7 can be scary and weird at first, but once you get used to it, it is an amazing pleasure to have in your life. Maybe you don’t see that or you’re scared of change, which is why they show you exactly how to roll back, in case you have updater’s remorse or getting nostalgic. You can easily downgrade iOS 7 to iOS 6 on the iPad as well. It really is very easy to roll back to iOS 7 from iOS 6 on your iPhone, so, if you really hate iOS 7 so much, you can get iOS 6 back right now, but hurry, Apple may cease the downloads very soon!

Let us know if you love iOS 7 or if you’d rather roll back to the old, boring iOS 6 look?

This nifty trick lets you get rid of all of the iOS 7 icons you hate

without comments

So, you finally updated to iOS 7, you like it, but find some of Apple’s applications annoying, their presence just makes you want to throw your phone. Well, there is a nifty trick that now allows you to hide all of those unwanted iOS 7 app icons you hate, and it doesn’t involve folders at all.

Thanks to what seems to be a bug in the latest version of iOS 7, consumers can easily rid themselves from all of those unwanted, and annoying applications that you always hated. All it takes is some home button clicking and icon selecting to rid yourself of Apple’s proprietary applications such as that pesky Stocks application, the useless Game Centre and most of all that awful News Stand application. But, if you’re scared to lose them permanently, don’t worry, you can still find them through the search option, which should easily assist you in getting them back, if you really want to that is.

iOS 7 is finally here and is said to be Apple’s best yet, what do you think about that? Let us know your thoughts on the new iOS 7!

iOS 7 goes live later today, reinventing every iPhone since 2010, and leading to some great confusion with those that haven’t heard of the brand new, redesigned operating system.

iOS 7 is going live globally and if you are eager to get your hands on some gradients, then take a look at the table above to see when it launches, where, today. iPod Touch 5G, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPad 4 owners are in for a treat, especially if you own one of the older, fast aging devices that you want to blow a breathe of new life into.

iOS 7 will not only pack boatloads of new features, but also a brand new user interface, and loads new feature to third party apps, in due time. So, let’s get the yummy!

Very first iPhone 5C television advertisement hits the web

without comments

The Apple iPhone 5C is set to go on sale on Friday, much to the excitement of fans around the country that has been waiting for a little more affordable iPhone in a wide variety of new colours. Apple’s ‘Plastic Perfected’ television advertisement has hit the web, and it looks great.

In Apple’s usual asthetics, the video is simple, to the point, elegant and quite vague. Plastic is shown gathering, building up to finally form the new Apple iPhone 5C. It is abstract and it’s exciting. Watching it makes my heart race and it is sure to do the same for you. The ‘Plastic Perfected’ slogan most certainly takes a stab at Samsung’s terrible plastic designs as well as the likes of Nokia, Sony, Huawei, LG and the usual crowd.

The iPhone 5C goes on sale this Friday starting at $99 on a two-year contract and $549 once-off. It is colourful, it is chubby, it is the iPhone 5C.

iPhone 5C: The ‘C’ stands for ‘Chubby’

without comments

image

It has been almost a week now since Apple announced their two new iPhone smartphones in the form of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Ever since, there has been a lot of speculation as to what exactly the ‘C’ stands for…

Many speculated that the ‘C’ in the iPhone 5C stands for ‘cheap’, but since it is only $100 more affordable that the latest flagship, the iPhone 5S, it is quite unlikely, so what does it stand for? Well, Apple claims ‘color’, but I believe that the ‘C’ stands for ‘chubby,’ not the ‘conspiracy’ that it has brought forth. Why ‘chubby’? Well, the iPhone 5C is 8.97mm thick, a whole 1.37mm thicker than its predecessor. By definition, chubby means plump and rounded, which are the exact words that I would use to describe the iPhone 5C. It feels firm in the hands, more rounded that ever before, smooth as a baby’s bum.

Sure, this is somewhat satirical of me to write, but come on, think about it. The iPod has featured colors before, no one called it the iPod Nano C, so why now? iPhone 5C(hubby) I tell you!!! Chubby chasers, Apple is keeping an eye out for you…

Phonebloks concept imagines a DIY smartphone future

without comments

Taste differs and thus mobile manufacturers can never satisfy everyone, especially those pesky Droids. Phonebloks, a concept by Dave Hakkens, sees a future where consumers can build, repair and upgrade there smartphones according to their likes and dislikes, and it sounds mighty fine.

Imagine a word where you can build your own smartphone with the processor, memory, screen, battery and all those other tidbits just the way you like. A world where you design your own phone and everyone’s device is unique. That sounds great doesn’t it? Dave Hakkens has conceptualized such an idea and it does look like it would have mass appeal, even though it is likely to never surface this side of the sun. Mobile makers need monies and smartphones are a great source of profits and revenue, so why kill that by having users create smartphones that can last a lifetime on the cheap? It’s still a mighty fine idea though.

Imagine creating your own phone… Lumia 925 design, Galaxy Note II battery life, Galaxy S4 screen, Lumia 1020 camera, Walkman F889 audio, iPhone operating system… The possibilities truly are endless…
