  • Google advises developers on how to weaken iOS 9 app security

    Google has advised app developers of a way to weaken the security of iOS 9, in order to serve ads to users. A post on the Google Ads Developer Blog offers code to help get around App Transport Security (ATS), a feature in iOS 9 that forces apps to use HTTPS to encrypt data sent over the Internet, with the code disabling ATS so that the apps comply with third-party advertising networks and are able to run some "custom creative code" from Google's own ad servers....

  • StickyBrain review: Slick notes manager turns its back on mobile sync

    31 Aug 2015 | 5:00 am
    The virtual equivalent of Post-It notes, Stickies have a storied history on the Mac, dating way back to the release of System 7.5 in 1994. More than a decade ago, this utility became something of an afterthought for Apple, who evicted the cute little squares from the Finder beginning with OS X Tiger, where they settled peacefully into retirement as Dashboard widgets. Perhaps sensing Mac owners had bored of colorful desktop notes, developer Chronos soon abandoned its own third-party take on the concept. Apparently you can’t keep a good sticky down, because StickyBrain has been resurrected…
  • T-Mobile threatens to impose limited plans on data 'thieves'

    T-Mobile USA is going after data thieves, which it says are taking advantage of the company's unlimited high-speed data plan through excessive tethering - the use of smartphone data service on other devices. The carrier offers unlimited 4G LTE on smartphones, but limits data usage through tethering to 7GB a month under a Smartphone Mobile HotSpot feature, which reduces speed beyond that limit. If a customer needs more LTE tethering, they can add on more. But CEO John Legere late Sunday accused some users of “hacking” the system to swipe high-speed tethered data, by strategies like…

  • Google OnHub Wi-Fi router review: It's designed to coddle novices and annoy power users

    You’ll either love or hate the new OnHub Wi-Fi router that Google and TP-Link have cooked up. If you’re of the “I just want it to work” mindset, you’ll dig it. If you’re an enthusiast who likes to bend hardware to your will, tweaking knobs and being aware of everything that’s going on under the hood, it will drive you nuts. The OnHub is a dual-band router co-designed by Google and TP-Link (manufactured by the latter) that operates networks on both the 2.4GHz (802.11b/g/n) and 5GHz (802.11n/a/ac) frequency bands simultaneously. But both networks use the same SSID, and the router…

    We're streaming live on Mobcrush right now. There's a couple different ways you can watch the stream, and they all work equally well and it's really just a matter of personal preference as to which method you prefer. The easiest way to watch is just watching the embedded player right here on TouchArcade. In the interest of being polite, we mute the audio. If you're somewhere you can listen, be sure to turn it back up- the controls for that are in the lower right corner of the video stream. Alternatively, if you're on a mobile device, visit mobcrush.com/beta and download the free Mobcrush app.

    To be blunt, I've never really played Magic The Gathering to any significant degree to understand it on more than a surface "this is a collectable card game" level. But based on a demo of Magic: the Gathering - Puzzle Quest at PAX Prime 2015, it seems like fans of the long-running card game franchise have something to look forward to here. Expect a structure very similar to Marvel Puzzle Quest [Free], but with MtG premise and rules, where you actually roll in to battle with your hero character and a deck of cards you can summon and use in battle by making your gem matches on the puzzle board.

    It was a bit of a surprise when Galak-Z was anounced for mobile, just because it didn't seem like the kind of game that would land on mobile, but I welcome developers trying to bring their cool games to mobile whenever possible. GungHo, the publisher of 17-Bit's mobile adaptation of the game, retitled Galak-Z: Variant Mobile, had an early playable version at their booth, and it certainly seems like something to keep an eye on. This is a roguelike-style action game, where you command a space fighter that uses Asteroids-esque thrusting mechanics to fly around and blast baddies, complete with…

Skyshine's Bedlam is extremely promising, as it combines the isometric turn-based strategy of The Banner Saga with the roguelike and resource-management aspects of FTL [$9.99 (HD)] and Out There [$1.99].

  • Invites go out for Apple’s September 9 iPhone event

    Andrew Cunningham

    Apple has made it official: the company's next product event happens on September 9 at 10am PT. The event will be held at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, which is larger than the "town hall" event space on Apple's campus in Cupertino. Traditionally, larger spaces usually imply larger, more important announcements. Apple included a cryptic message with its event invite—"Siri, give us a hint"—but our safe expectations for the event are fairly straightforward. Apple is likely to release "S" versions of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus designs with faster internals, better cameras,…

    When it emerged that UK-based Camel Audio—a highly respected developer of professional audio plugins—was acquired by Apple earlier this year, many wondered what the fate of its flagship Alchemy synthesizer would be. Early signs of Alchemy's influence appeared in the mainstream music production app GarageBand, leading to fears that perhaps one of the most highly regarded software synths of all time was being chopped up for use across a wide range of apps across Apple. Fortunately for the music making elite, not only is the full-fat version of the Alchemy synthesizer back, it's been given a…

Apple has announced an iSight Camera Replacement Program for iPhone 6 Plus models sold between the phone's launch in September of 2014 and January of 2015. "A small percentage" of phones sold included a faulty part that could make pictures taken with the rear camera look blurry. The problem doesn't affect the standard iPhone 6, so the 6 Plus' optical image stabilization component could be at fault. The front-facing FaceTime camera is also unaffected. If…

    Andrew Cunningham Logitech's K811 is a nice choice if you're using an iPad alongside multiple computers. 5 more images in gallery When I started using the iOS 9 betas on my iPad Air 2, I knew my keyboard situation needed to change. I have one Bluetooth keyboard, the standard Apple Wireless Keyboard that came with the 2012 iMac that serves as my work-issued computer. I paired it to my iPad for a bit to write our iOS 9 preview coverage, but having two devices paired to the same keyboard (or any Bluetooth accessory, really) is a pain. They fight. It’s messy. And while it’s the iPad that…

    27 Aug 2015 | 9:01 am
    Since its debut on the App Store last year, Workflow has established a new paradigm for automation on iOS. By deeply integrating with iOS apps, device hardware and sensors, an array of web services, and advanced actions for scripting and control flows, Workflow has shown how automation – for many an area of computing that evokes thoughts of old desktop apps and arcane scripting languages – can be reimagined for the iPhone and iPad while being fun and powerful. Workflow is one of the reasons behind my decision to go all-in with the iPad as my primary computer, and the Apple Design…

    Dispatch has long been one of the most powerful email clients for iPhone. Originally released by Clean Shaven Apps in 2013, Dispatch took a unique approach at managing email by relying on integrations with third-party apps, online services, and text snippets. In a pre-extensibility world, Dispatch was the only email client for iOS that could work alongside your todo or calendar app of choice, turning messages into actionable items that could talk to other apps on your device. As more and more "modern" email clients started using proprietary server-side features for smart processing and…

But the software itself is a success only on personal computers, not smartphones or tablets.

    Apple ads. They’re always the center of attention when they are released, and this time should be no different. Last night, Apple made a stronger effort to reach into the younger generation as a target market (as if it still has to?) by launching its newest Apple Music ads at the MTV VMAs (see winners here if interested). Apple has not uploaded the two new ads to its official YouTube channel, but the featured artist has jumped the gun. Thanks to him, people who couldn’t care less about MTV can see the ads now.

    For years, rumors have swirled regarding Apple’s release of an updated Apple TV model. Despite receiving minimal updates, the Apple TV is streaming box has garnered pretty good reviews over the years, and Apple is now selling the box at the really competitive price of $69—that low price puts the newest generation of Apple TV in competition with the Roku 2, a relatively strong streaming box but one that is ultimately limited in its performance.

    31 Aug 2015 | 4:39 am
    Tweet It’s an interesting rumor. And there’s a decent chance it might be true. According to recent reports, the next-gen Apple TV will feature an A8 processor, a native SDK for creating apps and a motion sensitive remote control with multi-axis sensors, complete with a touchpad on the top, physical buttons on the bottom and a microphone for Siri. The remote control is thought to be likely to target casual gamers and the current thought is that a game controller with a microphone, physical buttons, touchpad and motion-sensitive controls could do this. Such a device, combined with…

    Tweet It’s the rumor mill that keeps things interesting. With Apple’s September 9th media event coming up, sources have stated that a fourth-gen Apple TV will be available for under US4200 and will become available this October. Apple executives are apparently still finalizing the price of the revamped living room device, but the latest options call for a starting price point of either US$149 or US$199, both higher than the third-generation Apple TV… The next-gen device will arrive at a premium price compared to the US$60 to US$99 price range found on the current model Apple TV,…

    Tweet It looks like 16 gigabytes will continue to remain the low end of storage for Apple’s next-gen iPhone. A purported photo of an iPhone 6S information sheet seems to indicate that Apple will stick with 16 GB of storage for the base model. The image comes from Steve Hemmerstoffer and matches analysis of iPhone 6S components obtained by 9to5Mac back in June, which showed Apple using 16 GB memory chips in preproduction units. It was initially thought that Apple would bump the low end’s storage up appreciably, although early builds of iOS 9 indicate that the new operating system…

A mid-market breakout box offering is one thing, but a huge, rumbling platform with an upward trajectory of living-room dominating apps and third-party content is another beast. If, obviously if, Apple is successful with the Apple TV, it could be in a position to dominate content in a way that no other “smart” TV platform has before it.

Phoronix notes a new project called NeXTBSD that might turn more heads than most new open source OSes, in part because of the developers behind it, and in part because of the positive thoughts many people have toward the aesthetics of NeXTSTEP and Mac OS X. (And while it might be a fork of FreeBSD, the…

    As of September 30th, we'll no longer support Evernote Food for iOS and Android. This means the apps will no longer be available for download and we won't be making any further updates to them. It also means that features within the apps, including sync with the Evernote service, will no longer work. I love Evernote and keep all my recipe and cooking notes in there, but I never got into the Food app. Just personally, regular Evernote worked for me. But, if you enjoy it, look for it to stop working soon. At the Evernote blog, the company offers some suggestions for alternatives. Article Link

The one-minute spots show The Weeknd walking backstage after performing at the MVAs, getting into a limo driven by actor John Travolta and listening to Beats 1 Radio while scrolling through his artist page on Apple Music Connect. The Weeknd then arrives at an MVAs afterparty with his single "The Hills" playing and shuffles through additional songs from an Apple Music playlist, followed by the tagline "It's all in your head.

    Apple Music has now been out for a couple of months, and it’s still the cause of much frustration for some people. There seems to be a deep misunderstanding of some of the core concepts, as well as a feeling that Apple is perhaps expecting too much of iTunes, by shoehorning too many features into this very old application. In this show I’m going to try and dispel some of the FUD - that’s Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt, that seems to be prevalent, and try and explain in detail what Apple Music is, and how the various components work together.

  • Video producer hooks up six 4K monitors to Mac Pro at 60Hz using only built-in graphics cards [Video]

    Ben Lovejoy
    31 Aug 2015 | 4:46 am
    Video producer Adam Matthews wanted to double the number of 4K monitors hooked up to his Mac Pro, so built an external GPU to do it. He used a Sonnet Thunderbolt chassis with an AMD 7970 GPU – before discovering that the machine could actually drive all six monitors without it. When Matthews tried connecting the monitors using only the twin graphics cards built into the Mac Pro, just to see what would happen, he found he was still able to get 60Hz on each, suggesting that Apple has been conservative in its claims. Of course, it’s possible that the strain of pushing video to six…

That’s the market Sony hopes to appeal to with a new hybrid watch called Wena (which apparently stands for ‘wear electronics naturally’), which it’s pitching on its Japanese crowdfunding site First Flight. It’s mostly a traditional analogue watch, but a link to an iOS app gives it limited smartwatch functionality. On the smartwatch side, you get fitness band functionality, and notifications are echoed to the watch in the form…

    Dig through your Mac’s settings and you’ll find a firewall, turned off by default. Isn’t that insecure? Why would Apple be so irresponsible? Don’t panic: this doesn’t mean your machine isn’t secure. The firewall in question lets you block incoming traffic to particular programs, meaning it’s only useful if there are programs on your computer that you’d like to restrict in terms of incoming information. If that’s not the case, and if you use the Internet primarily behind a secure router, you probably don’t need to enable a firewall…

I can launch the Grab app to capture these screen shots but I can also hit ⇧⌘3 (shift/command/3) to capture the screen. Easier yet, if I frequently use that key combination I can customize the keys I use or make one of my function keys do the screen grab. Here's how you…

    22 Aug 2015 | 8:59 am
    Malwarebytes For Mac, or Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac as it is officially known, is a free malware and adware removal tool for Mac. Malwarebytes has been a trusted and popular malware removal tool on PC and Windows for many years and although Malwarebytes for Mac was finally released in July 2015, it’s not actually a new tool. Due to the enormous success of an independent tool called AdwareMedic by Mac security expert Thomas Reed, Malwarebytes astutely spotted the chance to buy AdwareMedic and finally get a foothold in the Mac market. Not only that, but they brought Reed on board…

  • Lattice For Mac Review

    MacHow2
    19 Aug 2015 | 4:42 am
    Until recently, color management and LUT translation has required expensive post production software but Lattice for Mac has changed all of that. Lattice is a powerful video utility that allows you to manipulate, transform and convert 3D and 1D LUTs. The problem with LUTs is that it remains a bit of a mystery how they work so Lattice demystifies the process with surprising ease. It’s almost impossible to know what’s behind .cube files unless you use a tool such as Lattice to deconstruct LUTs which allow you to manipulate them mathematically. The power Lattice gives you in terms of…

  • Apple's hiring of a Microsoft HoloLens audio engineer hints at future augmented reality projects

    In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — Piper Jaffray analyst Travis Jakel says Apple has hired Nick Thompson, formerly the lead audio engineer for Microsoft's HoloLens augmented reality project. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, thinks this is further evidence that the company likely has an internal team working on potential augmented reality (AR) projects.  "We believe AR audio is often thought of as not important or secondary to the experience, however, we believe positional audio is what sells the experience and convinces the user there is a real object in front…

    Apple will almost certainly announce the next generation iPhone at its Sept. 9 media event. However, China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom will start selling the "iPhone 6s" on Sept. 25 and pre-sales will begin on Sept. 18, according to the Leaksfly microblog (as noted by BrightWire.com, a global investment newswire). The iPhone 6s is the name expected to be given to the next version of the smartphone — unless Apple decides to call it the iPhone 7. Citing sources within China Mobile, Leaksfly claims the 16GB version will be priced at CNY 5,299 (about US$831), the 64GB version at CNY…

    A study by StellaService, which measures online customer service, indicates a decline in Apple's customer service in recent months.The decline, as reported by Cult of Mac, mainly involves Apple’s phone, email and chat problem resolution scores. While Apple typically ranks highly in this category, this quarter the amount of time customers had to wait to chat to an Apple rep increased from 34 seconds to 63 seconds.  Even when people do get to chat to someone, the successful chat resolution rate — referring to the questions answered satisfactorily — fell from 97…

Using the Fitbit app, people can compare their progress throughout the day or week against their friends (or perhaps even their enemies). That…

    So I was writing other articles and missed Dan’s post about Dr. Drang’s post about the iPhone 6S backplate, but I can’t let this joke go: I’m going to discuss these in reverse order, critiquing and adding missing detail. Although the video is nearly twelve minutes long, it’s light on detail, with much of the time being spent telling us how cool Lew is. This is unnecessary—we can tell how cool Lew is from his backwards baseball cap. I love how Dr. Drang’s engineering background provides a unique perspective on alloys and heat treatment. (Also,…
