photo-main

iStick™: The World’s first USB flash drive with integrated Apple Lightning connector. Made for iPhone & iPad.

iStick allows you to easily, quickly and safely move data between computers, iPhones, iPads and iPod touches without the need for Internet, wireless networks or the Cloud where hackers and others (e.g. 3rd party server operators) may gain access.

We all have used a USB flash drive at least once in our lives. They are great for transferring large files between computers, require minimal setup and the transfer speed is much faster than the fastest Cloud storage. It doesn’t require the Internet to work and your data is never sent through 3rd party servers. The USB flash drive is great but it doesn’t work with your favorite Apple iDevices. Until now.

Union, The Best Image-Blending App Around

Screen Shot 2014-04-18 at 10.12.17 PM

You might as well delete all the layer-blending apps on your iPhone or iPad right now, because Union is better than all of them. It comes from Pixite apps, the developer behind Unbound, LoryStrips, Flickring, Tangent and more, and it lets you stack images, then blend and manipulate them to stunning effect. How stunning? Take a look:

Union really is incredible. If all it did was let you stack two images and apply a blend-mode to them, it would be worth the $2 price, it’s so well designed and easy to use. But there’s more.

You can also add and blend color layers and gradients, and you can mask out parts of the image, removing a sky, say, to replace it with another picture. This is done with a magic wand tool that auto-masks an area you tap, and then refines the selection with a simple slider. It’s easy and effective, and you can clean up any edges quickly by painting with your fingers.

Rotating, scaling and everything else is dead easy, and you can also flatten your image and then add another layer.

Once done, save the result, share it from the app or send it off to another app for further tweaking. And all for $2. You should probably just go get it right now.

iOS 6 Users Suffer Major FaceTime Outage.

Screen Shot 2014-04-18 at 9.40.51 PM

Is Apple doing a : “upgrade to iOS 7 or you won’t be able to chat?”

First spotted in a thread on the Apple Support Communities mini-site, a number of users running iOS 6-powered devices have reported an inability to either make or receive FaceTime calls. According to them, this problem dates back to April 16.

 The issue is not affecting iOS 7 users, and Apple’s “Systems Status” page shows that the video and audio software  is listed as running normally.

While a fix addressing the iOS 6 FaceTime fault is expected to appear in the near future, Apple has advised all users experiencing the problem to upgrade to iOS 7.

As it is, iOS 6 users make up a small proportion of overall iOS users. Official figures released by Apple earlier this month show that 87% of users are now running iOS 7, 11% are running iOS 6, and just 2% are running an earlier version of Apple’s mobile OS.

Still, when you’re talking about 11% of the enormous market that is total iOS users, that’s still a lot of people.

Are you having any problems with FaceTime currently?

“Heathstone” Is The Most Downloaded App In 34 Countries A Day After Launch

Screen Shot 2014-04-18 at 9.28.56 PM

Move over FarmVilleCandy Crush and all those other freemium games whose developers (presumably) sleep on top of a pile of money with beautiful ladies in it — we may have a new contender for app overlord of 2014.

Blizzard’s turn-based iPad game Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft was released on Thursday (17 April 2014), but already it’s the No. 1 most downloaded game in 36 countries, and the most downloaded app overall in 34 countries.

According to analyst Sterne Agee, the game will likely rake in $30 million in revenue this year alone.

Like the other titles mentioned above, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is free to play, but includes in-app purchases.

An iPhone version is set to follow later this year, and will only open up the game’s revenue streams further.

Nice work if you can get it!

Is Monument Valley The Most Visually Stunning iOS Game Of The Year?

Screen Shot 2014-04-04 at 10.46.22 PM

The year might only be three months old but there’s already a contender for ‘most visually striking iOS game of 2014.’

Launched today, Monument Valley looks to combine the gameplay of hit indie game Fez with the brain-twisting art of M.C. Escher.

As can be seen from the above trailer it looks stunningly beautiful, and with developers Ustwo (the team responsible for Whale Trail and Blip Blup) behind it, hopefully the gameplay will be every bit as great. The trailer depicts Princess Ida climbing through landscapes of shifting geometric shapes, optical illusions, and hidden paths — all the while avoiding and outsmarting the enigmatic Crow People.

 Designer Ken Wong calls it “a beautiful, exploratory experience, somewhere between exploring a toy shop and reading The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.”

Monument Valley is available for newer iPads, iPhones, and iPod touches. It costs $3.99.
