If you are using iOS 8 it’s fairly easy to see which apps you use the most on your iPhone. In fact, you can break down the usage for the past 24 hours and also the past 7 days. Here’s how to see which apps you use most on iOS.
Go to Settings > General > Usage > Battery Usage
Before I go any further, I should note that this doesn’t show actual app usage, but rather how much battery a particular app used. Obviously, the thought process here is that apps you use more will use more battery. If you [...]
I am in love with Google’s new Photos app. It has been less than a day but I’ve already decided it is now my default photo/video organization app. Yesterday at Google I/O, the brand new Photos app was one of the big announcements the company made. With the announcement Google also one-upped pretty much every other photo service out there with unlimited photo and video storage for free.*
That asterisk is there because it’s only unlimited for photos up to 16MP and videos up to 1080p. But really, at the moment, [...]
In the YouTube video introducing the “phone companion” app that will be on Windows 10 PCs to help users install Cortana on their devices, Microsoft seemingly confirmed that Cortana will be coming to iOS and Android devices later this year. The video also shows off Cortana on both Android and iOS, which will look similar to the Windows counterpart and can answer the same queries across devices.
But what really caught my attention in the video (above) was the following line at the end of the video:
If the future of Destiny DLC looks anything like House of Wolves, I think we’re all in for the game we envisioned at the start.
I don’t want to get too deep into things — I’ll do an official review of the content next week — but I’ve found myself pretty pleased with the way Bungie treated this expansion when compared to The Dark Below. I’m most impressed by the voice work (Petra Venj and Variks are great) and the breadth of activities to take part in. Add the Prison of Elders, Trials of [...]
When we started reaching out to potential customers at KYA about 3 to 4 months ago it was a whole new experience for me, I had never actually been a “salesman” in the typical sense of the word and yet here I was lining up demos for my product with the ultimate goal of getting the publisher to sign up. It was scary to think about at first. But honestly, the more I thought about it the more comfortable I felt. Here’s why:
As a founder of a company, [...]
This year is looking like it’ll be a good one for mobile gaming. Newzoo, the Amsterdam-based market research firm for the gaming industry, has forecast that the strong growth in mobile gaming during 2014 (a 43 percent rise compared to 2013) will continue during 2015.
And that increased growth is expected in all major gaming markets around the world, with the biggest increase in mobile gaming expected in Southeast Asia and in China – at around 86 percent. Meanwhile, a 51 percent increase is anticipated in [...]
So you just got that shiny new Apple Watch but now, you have a problem: you don’t just want to lay it on your desk to charge or when you’re not using it. I don’t blame you, I didn’t either, which is why when I saw that Twelve South was making an Apple Watch stand I knew I had to have one.
If you aren’t familiar with Twelve South, they make accessories specifically for Apple products. So they make stands for MacBook’s, iPhones, iPads, and now the Apple Watch. They also make a bunch of other [...]
Smartwatch technology has already moved forward very quickly since its inception and now with many of the top technology companies throwing their hats in the ring such as Apple, Google, and Samsung, we can expect that to accelerate even further.
The Apple Watch dropped late last month and that has put the likes of Google and Samsung on their toes. This increase in competition is the best possible thing for us as consumers as it drives up quality and innovation, while also helping to drive down [...]
