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.

Following in the footsteps of Apple's Remote app for the iPhone and Apple TV, Google has released an iOS version of its official Google TV remote app that made its debut for Android back in December last year.

Scribd HTML5 viewer goes mobile, Flash ditched on 20 million embeds

In 2010, Scribd announced that it planned to dump Adobe Flash embeds in favor of an HTML5 viewer for its user-uploaded documents. Now, the Scribd HTML5 experience has gone mobile as well. That's a very welcome update, since certain shiny touchscreen mobile devices don't offer support for Flash embeds. Scribd has also announced that all of its existing embeds -- which number more than 20 mill...

Test that showed Android browser faster than iPhone Safari was flawed

Yesterday's rather shocking finding that the Nexus S loads Web pages 52% faster than the iPhone 4 has turned out to be a sham. Apple has lashed out at Blaze Software, the company behind the test, saying: "Their testing is flawed. They didn't actually test the Safari browser on the iPhone. Instead they only tested their own proprietary app, which uses an embedded Web viewer that doesn't actua...

Angry Birds iOS update ends their Frontier Badlands adventure with 15 new levels, a Golden Egg and ads

Angry Birds, everyone's favorite casual gaming juggernaut, has just been updated to version 1.5.3 for iOS. In 'yet another blistering update' the Birds conclude their adventures in the Frontier Badlands with 15 new levels 'each more challenging than the next.'

WordPress for iOS 2.7 features improved data management, better stability

Now, enter WordPress for iOS 2.7, which uses Apple's Core Data framework for even greater stability. The post editor has been updated, and it offers easy access to tags and categories,...

Gmail iOS Web app gains new connection bar on the iPhone and iPod touch

Google has just made another addition to the already feature-rich Gmail iOS Web app. You can now see a pop-up connection bar, that shows you what the Web app is doing, when you last checked for new mail, whether your email was sent successfully and whether you're working online or offline, plus an indicator to show you if you've got any email left in your outbox.

Apple iPhone and iPod touch confused over daylight saving time... again

The United States and Canada, with their early shift to daylight saving time (DST), are yet again acting as cannon fodder for other iPhone and iPod touch users around the world. Reports of DST-related malfunctions vary wildly, with some iPhone and iPod touch alarms going off early, some late, and with some working just fine. Crazily, one iPhone 3GS user says that his phone correctly jumped f...

iOS 4.3 jailbreak on Windows now possible with Sn0wbreeze 2.3

Redmond Pie, a blog that seems to resolutely have given up on its Microsoft roots, has published a guide on jailbreaking iOS 4.3 on Windows with Sn0wbreeze 2.3. It should work with the iPhone 4 and 3GS, iPad and iPod touch. We don't have any personal experience with Sn0wbreeze here at Download Squad, but the process seems easy enough. Like the PwnageTool Mac jailbreak of iOS 4.3, this is a t...

iOS in-app purchases now always require password

Apple's in-app purchasing mechanism has suffered a small, but important change in iOS 4.3. Whereas before you could make as many in-app purchases as you pleased without having to enter your iTunes password for 15 minutes after last entering that password (for example, when purchasing an app or game), from now on entering the password will be required for each and every in-app purchase. This will s...
