Twitter backpedals on the Quickbar, makes it no longer cover tweets

Twitter has reacted to the backlash about the Quickbar, the new addition to its iOS apps that shows you trending topics (including promoted trends). The Quickbar was introduced in an update to Twitter for iOS that became available on March 3, and, in just a few days, it's been made very clear that people really hate it. So Twitter decided to step up and submitted an updated version of its app to...

Android games more lucrative and addictive than iOS?

Spacetime Studios, the developer behind Android and iOS game Pocket Legends, has spoken out about a massive disparity in the behavior of its mobile users. Not only do Android users play Pocket Legends three times as much as their iOS counterparts, but they also spend between 30 and 50% more on in-app purchases. "We've just been blown away. Android has become our primary interest," Gary Gattis,...

iOS 4.3 to be released today, and will allow up to five Personal Hotspot connections?

Rather than waiting until March 11 and the release of iPad 2, it looks like iOS 4.3 might be made available at 10am Pacific Time today according to BGR's sources. The Golden Master was released only five days ago, but if no hard blocking bugs were found by Apple's slew of slavering developers, an early release isn't unusual -- and the sooner Apple gets iOS 4.3 into the hands of millions of...

Apple makes iOS 4.3 golden master available to developers

The iOS 4.3 golden master (GM), as well as the Xcode and iOS SDK 4.3 GM are now available to download from Apple's Dev Center. The golden master, usually referred to as GM, is the last step before a new iOS version actually gets released to the whole world. Of course, this time we already know when that will happen -- next Friday, on March 11. We found out as much during yesterday's iPad 2...

TruPrint for iOS supports many more printers than AirPrint, only works on jailbroken devices

Sure, iOS 4.2 and newer versions have AirPrint -- which lets you print from your iDevice to any of the supported printers. However, if you don't own one of the select few models, you're pretty much left without any workable printing support in iOS. That's where TruPrint comes in - if you've decided to step into the dark side and jailbreak your iDevice, that is. TruPrint supports many more...

Skyfire 3 for iPhone released, Flash video playback improved

Skyfire for iPhone, the browser that shot to fame at the end of 2010 thanks to its ability to play Flash video, has now reached version 3. The most notable change, if you're using Skyfire to play Flash video on your iPhone, is that Skyfire now works with more sites, and transcoded video has been further optimized to save your bandwidth, and thus money. The new version features even more...

Ask DLS: Cross-platform multiplayer games that work on Android and iOS

Here's one for our knowledgeable commenters: I recently bought my girlfriend an iPad. I, on the other hand, own an Android device. And now we're looking for games we can play using both devices. There's no dearth of multiplayer games either for Android or for iOS. But finding multiplayer games that can cross the platform boundary is an entirely different matter. Jay recently posted Words...

New Google Analytics SDK for iOS supports custom variables

Google has recently released version 1.1 of its Analytics SDK for iOS. The main addition to this release is support for custom variables, which has been available in Analytics for Android since December of last year. Custom variables allow you to segment your users and they can provide very useful context. Examples include finding out what percentage of users prefer a paid app vs. an...

Rdio reveals version 1.0 of iPhone app, slicker, faster, better than Spotify

Rdio, the subscription-only music-on-demand service, has massively overhauled its iPhone, iPad and iPod app. Initial response seems positive: the previous version of the app surfed around the 2 1/2-star mark on iTunes, and the new one is already racking up plenty of 5-star reviews. It's still only available in North America, incidentally. The new interface is beautiful (and boy does it make the...

NBA Jam for iOS lights up the App Store!

You knew it was coming, and now it's here: NBA Jam is now available for purchase from the App Store. At $4.99, Jam is all the portable b-ball action you can handle on your iOS device -- with unlockable NBA legends including Dr. J and Dennis Rodman, a campaign mode, and play-by-play by Tom Kitzrow (who did the original NBA Jam voicing). As you can tell from the screenshot, even big head mode is...

IE8 biggest grower in January, while Chrome hits 10% and iOS devices reach 2%

It's the beginning of a new month, and as always, Net Applications has published its findings from the last 30 days. They're slightly more exciting than usual, too: Chrome gained 0.72, while Internet Explorer 8 gained a massive 1.15% to sit pretty at 34.17%. The IE9 beta now accounts for 0.5% usage share worldwide. Firefox lost a small amount of ground and Opera gained a tiny bit. More...

It's available, as you can see from the picture above, for iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch 3rd and 4th generation. A separate package is also available for the 2nd generation Apple TV. According to AppAdvice, the iOS 4.3 betas allow...

Bump for iOS now shares app recommendations

Bump for iOS has reached version 2.4, and it now supports easy swapping of app recommendations with just a tap (or 'bump'). A couple of months ago, the app added easy user-to-user music sharing to its features, and now, with app recommendations built-in, there's little information that you can't share with your friends via (a) Bump. Apparently, adding app recommendations has been the biggest...

OS7 is a Windows Phone 7 theme for your iPhone or iPod touch, complete with live tiles

OS7, an iOS theme, brings all that's different about Windows Phone 7's new Metro UI to your iPhone or iPod touch. OS7 is comprised of two menus: the Live Tiles and the alphabetically sorted list of apps you have installed, just like WP7. You can customize the tile menu however you wish, and 'pinning' an item to it is as easy as scrolling to the desired app in the alphabetical list, long-pressing,...
