Apple orders iCab iOS browser to cripple JavaScript modules

The developer of iCab Mobile, a feature-rich alternative to the Safari Web browser on iPad and iPhone, has been ordered by Apple to remove its ability to download and install JavaScript modules. Presumably it's not the fact that iCab can execute JavaScript that's causing Apple to apoplectically puff and splutter, but rather its ability to download modules. Both Apple and Google frown upon...

Microsoft releases sexy Bing app for iPad

It's still a bit odd seeing Microsoft deliver apps for Apple's mobile platform. And it's even stranger still to see one as sexy as the new Bing app for iPad, which brings a slick, immersive search experience to Apple's tablet. Just as a regular search on bing.com will, the Bing app for iPad tailors the results it displays based on what you're searching for. There are loads of custom views,...

Zoho Docs 2.0 adds iPad support

Zoho has offered an iOS app for a while now -- at least for the iPhone and iPod touch.

Zoho Docs 2.0 has landed in the App Store, and the most notable change is that it's now a universal app. Now you're able to take advantage of the app's mobile productivity powers on your...

Google Books for iPad adds in-book search and landscape mode

Google has updated its Books app for iOS today, and the new version brings a handful of bug fixes, performance improvements, and a couple of new features. One of these is iPad-specific: reading books in the landscape orientation on Apple tablets is now possible.

Adobe Photoshop for iPad will get real layer support in the future

During the Photoshop World conference's keynote, Adobe has unveiled some details about the next generation Photoshop for iPad, that's being worked on as we speak. Despite the recent feature additions to the current version of Photoshop for iOS, that's still an 'Express' app, and for good reasons -- although quite robust, it's nowhere near as capable as the desktop software going by the same...

Twitter kills QuickBar from its iOS app

Twitter has just updated its iOS app, and the biggest change that version 3.3.3 brings is something many users have asked for -- the removal of the (in)famous dickQuickBar. First introduced in an update at the beginning of this month, this new feature has seen immense backlash from users of the app, who considered it had only one purpose -- to intrusively serve 'promoted trends' and help Twitter...

Skyfire Web browser for iOS goes multiligual, adds related sites feature

SugarSync, the online backup and file sync service, has just announced the availability of SugarSync 2.2 for iOS, a version that represents the biggest ever update to SugarSync's iOS app. It adds many new features, most of them inspired by user feedback. First of all, SugarSync for iOS now lets you remotely manage files on your computer. Be it copying, moving, or deleting, you can now do all of...

A jailbreak of iOS 4.3.1 is now possible with both PwnageTool on Mac, and Sn0wbreeze on Windows. RedmondPie -- who else? -- has some handy guides that you can follow for all iOS 4.3.1 devices on Windows, for iPhone 4 on OS X, iPad 1 on OS X, iPhone 3GS on OS X, and iPod touch 4G and 3G on OS X.

iOS 4.3.1 update now available, mostly bugfixes

Apple has released iOS 4.3.1, and it's now available via the "update" button in iTunes. 4.3.1 isn't a feature update, but it does fix a graphics glitch for the 4th-gen iPod Touch and some issues with connecting to cellular networks. The update isn't available for Verizon iPhone users -- who are still on 4.2.6 -- but it works with all other recent devices (including the iPad 2). It apparently...

IMDb app for iOS adds Watchlist, magical search, AirPlay for trailers, and more

IMDb has updated its iOS app to version 2.1. The new release has a few nice features added, along with the usual bug fixes and performance improvements. You can now create and maintain a Watchlist, to which you can add movies and TV shows that interest you. The aptly-named 'magical search' behaves in the way Google Instant does, showing results while you type. There's also added support for...

The Wall Street Journal has started selling single issues via its iPad app today, allowing even those who don't subscribe to the publication to get the full digital edition of each day's newspaper. The WSJ iPad app offers some content for free, but full access to each WSJ issue has so far been restricted to subscribers only. This changes today. For $1.99, you'll get the digital equivalent of...

Mobile torrenting: how to manage and stream downloads from your phone

While exciting progress is being made in the realm of high-speed mobile data, it will be a long time indeed before wireless operators can catch up with wired bandwidth and ubiquity. For the time being, mass data transfer will be one of the few things that will stay within the realm of home and office computing, on DSL and Cable connections. Still, just because you run your BitTorrent client on...

Quickshot camera app for iOS saves photos straight to Dropbox

If you upload a lot of photos from your iPhone to Dropbox, you know it's kind of a pain in the butt. Opening the Dropbox app and then individually transferring each photo takes quite some time, and there's no batch photo select option available. Quickshot with Dropbox for iOS offers a way to get the job done, though. With Quickshot, you just select a photos folder in your Dropbox and start...
