Hack Allows Pokémon Go Users to Move around in the Map without Jailbreaking iPhone

One of the key reasons behind the popularity of Pokémon Go has been how Niantic and Nintendo managed to include the AR aspect into the game. While a handful of AR based games for smartphones do exist, none of them ever managed to garner as much interest as Pokémon Go. Continue reading

Vesper is being discontinued and here’s why…

Posted on by Rene Ritchie.
Categories: Uncategorized.

Merci.

Vesper, the notes app by Brent Simmons, Dave Wiskus, and John Gruber, will be shutting down in the very near future. The reason, when you cut to it, is simple: Vesper didn't make enough money to support it's ongoing development.

Brent Simmons, writing at inessential:

We at Q Branch just released the final version of Vesper. It does one crucial thing: it allows you to export your notes and pictures. See the new Export section in the sidebar.

Sync will be turned off Aug. 30 at 8pm Pacific. We'll destroy all the data, and neither we nor anyone else will be able to recover it.

The app will be removed from the App Store on Sep. 15. Until then, starting now, it's free — since you can't create new sync accounts, and it wouldn't be fair to charge new users if they can't sync.

John Gruber, writing on Daring Fireball:

iOS 7, in addition to looking all-new, introduced new architectural features like size classes. In the pre-iOS 7 era, building an iPad app was like building a second app. You could bundle it together with the iPhone version in a universal binary, but from a developer's perspective it was nearly twice the work. If we had started with iOS 7, we might been able to natively support the iPad from day one on iOS, so the actual schedule might have looked like this:

  • Build Vesper for Mac. Sell it for around $20.
  • Build a sync system.
  • Build Vesper for iOS 7, with native support for iPhone and iPad.
  • Maybe build a web version.

I'm a firm believer that you always need some good luck to succeed. We would have been luckier, timing-wise, if we had done the Mac app first, because we would have been able to build the iOS version for iOS 7 right from the start.

I used Vesper a lot. I enjoyed its style and sensibilities. I'm sad to see it go, both as an app and as an indicator of how hard it is to thrive with indie apps.

Apple Notes doesn't have the same aesthetic, but it's ubiquity makes it an easy go-to if you're looking for a replacement.

Apple’s Deep Pockets Affecting Spotify Contract Renewals

Posted on by Juli Clover.
Categories: Uncategorized.
Spotify-Apple-Music-logosSeveral of Spotify's contracts are up for renewal and the high rates Apple pays record labels are affecting Spotify's negotiations, reports MusicBusinessWorldwide. As it considers a future IPO, Spotify is aiming to strike long-term deals with record labels at lower rates, while labels want Spotify to pay as much as Apple does.

Spotify reportedly pays record labels 55 percent of its revenue, while Apple Music pays 58 percent (Apple is also said to pay more to publishers than Spotify does). Spotify was initially given a "marketing discount," but now record labels want Spotify to pay what Apple pays. Meanwhile, Spotify, in an effort to become profitable, wants to pay less.
The major labels, unimpressed with some of Spotify's recent spending decisions, believe that now's the time to up this figure. So where do they want to take it?

Well, it's common knowledge that Apple Music is paying 58% of revenue to labels - after users' free trial periods have finished. The majors want Spotify to move its revenue share up towards that point.

Loss-making Spotify, though, is attempting to push this revenue share down, say MBW's sources. Yup: that means paying labels and artists a smaller slice of the proceeds.
Spotify is arguing that Apple's revenue share rate only applies after a three-month free trial and that it simply doesn't have the spending power of Apple, Google, or Amazon, three of its main competitors all with deep pockets, large user bases, and other sources of revenue.

Negotiations remain "optimistic" according to MBW's sources, and the "likely outcome" is a licensing deal similar to the one Spotify has had for the last few years, but a deal has yet to be struck. Spotify is said to be considering "windowing" or making some new releases temporarily exclusive to paying customers as a way to lure labels into accepting a lower rate.

Spotify's contracts with Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, and Sony Music Group are all expired, and while Spotify continues to license content on a month to month basis, the absence of a long-term plan could potentially affect the company's IPO plans. It is, however, said to be "out of the question" that the three major music labels will pull their content from Spotify.

Prisma running slow or ‘over capacity’? Here’s what you can do!

Posted on by Lory Gil.
Categories: Uncategorized.

What can you do when Prisma is running slow or giving you an 'over capacity' error? Here's what you need to know!

Prisma updated its app to add an offline mode for "the majority of Prisma styles." That means you're less likely to see the "over-capacity" error for many of Prisma's most popular filters! The app was also updated with special "philanthropic styles," that let you make a $1 donation to an Elbi charity.

Prisma is a photo filter app, available on the App Store, that turns your snapshots into digital artwork. It uses artificial intelligence to alter photos for maximum effect.

It can also take hella long to load individual filters. We're talking, like, 10 seconds or more, which is way too long when you're trying out three dozen different filters for one picture. Worse, it can sometimes give you an "over capacity" error and simply not work at all. So, what's going on?

How Prisma works

Prisma uses artificial intelligence to suggest the perfect filter for your photo. It then analyzes the elements involved and, in essence, redraws it.

For Prisma's more complex filters, it uploads your picture to the server, makes the changes, and then downloads it back onto your device. A lot is happening to turn your selfie into a work of art.

Why is Prisma is sometimes 'over capacity'?

You may have seen the message, "Prisma is over capacity. There are too many people using Prisma right now. Please wait a moment and try again." Because of Prisma's popularity, the servers are having a difficult time keeping up.

Why does Prisma sometimes runs slowly?

Even when Prisma's servers are up and running, they can still be slow or even free up if too many people are trying to use it at once. Basically, Prisma is like the Pokémon Go of photo apps. They'll need to add more servers as they get more users to properly scale the service.

Aside from Prisma's server problems, due to the AI process, some filters require your device to be online. So, if you have a slow connection or weak data signal, it is going to take even longer for those filters to load.

Which filters are offline?

If you're struggling to get Prisma's online filters working, you might just want to stick to the offline options. A quick way to tell the difference is to turn on Airplane Mode. Without network access, the app will gray-out filters that need an internet connection to work.

Tips and tricks to getting Prisma's online filters to work faster

  1. Make sure you are on a strong network - Whether you are using local Wi-Fi or your cellular data, you can get to the filter faster if your signal is strong. If your Wi-Fi network is slow (like at a hotel or coffee shop), switch over to LTE while you load up filters.
  2. Don't leave the app - If you get a text message or notification while loading a Prisma filter, it won't continue to load in the background. It just stops, mid-load.
  3. Don't run data-heavy programs in the background - If you're streaming music or downloading app updates in the background while trying to load filters, you may see a slight slowdown. Normally, the slowness would be insignificant, but since Prisma is experiencing its own problems with server issues, the less clutter, the better.
  4. Don't restart Prisma - I know, most of the time, when an app is struggling to load, your first instinct is to "hard close" it by swiping up from the Recent Apps tool. But if you've already loaded a half-dozen filters when Prisma started to slow down, you still have those six filters already on lockdown. If you hard close the app, you'll lose all of that progress and have to start over from scratch.
  5. Just walk away - There are times when Prisma just isn't going to work, especially when the servers are overloaded. There is nothing you can do about it except follow the app's advice to, "Please wait a moment and try again."

What has your experience with Prisma been like?

How to migrate your files from Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive to iCloud Drive on a Mac

Posted on by Lory Gil.

Are you ready to go all-in with iCloud Drive? You can move files and folders from Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive right now!

iCloud Drive is Apple's answer to a cloud-based storage system. Over the years, it has improved a lot in terms of usability, including working across various platforms. If you've been storing files in another storage service, like Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive and you want to condense down to just iCloud Drive, you can easily move all of your data with just a few steps.

How to move data from Dropbox to iCloud Drive on a Mac

Dropbox automatically creates a Favorites shortcut in the sidebar of your Finder window, so you can drag and drop files on your Mac.

  1. Open Finder from your Mac's dock.
  2. Click on Dropbox in the sidebar.
  3. Select the files and folders you want to move (or select them all if you want to completely move away from Dropbox reliance).
  4. Drag the files to iCloud Drive in the sidebar of the Finder window.

Your files will sync with iCloud Drive and be removed from Dropbox. If you change your mind (like you forgot you were sharing a folder with someone), you can always drag files and folders back from iCloud Drive into Dropbox the same way.

How to move data from Google Drive to iCloud Drive on a Mac

Google Drive automatically creates a Favorites shortcut in the sidebar of your Finder window, so you can drag and drop files on your Mac.

  1. Open Finder from your Mac's dock.
  2. Click on Google Drive in the sidebar.
  3. Select the files and folders you want to move (or select them all if you want to completely move away from Google Drive reliance).
  4. Drag the files to iCloud Drive in the sidebar of the Finder window.

Your files will sync with iCloud Drive and be removed from Google Drive. If you change your mind, you can always drag files and folders back from iCloud Drive into Google Drive the same way.

How to move data from OneDrive to iCloud Drive on a Mac

One Drive does not automatically create a Favorites shortcut in the sidebar of your Finder window, but you can manually create one.

  1. Open Finder from your Mac's dock.
  2. Click the search bar in the upper right corner of the Finder window.
  3. Enter OneDrive to find the folder.
  4. Select the OneDrive folder (Make sure it is the folder where your files are stored and not the application itself).
  5. Drag the OneDrive folder to the sidebar.

After you have created a Favorites shortcut for OneDrive in your Finder window's sidebar, you can easily move files to iCloud Drive.

  1. Open Finder from your Mac's dock.
  2. Click on OneDrive in the sidebar.
  3. Select the files and folders you want to move (or select them all if you want to completely move away from OneDrive reliance).
  4. Drag the files to iCloud Drive in the sidebar of the Finder window.

Your files will sync with iCloud Drive and be removed from OneDrive. If you change your mind, you can always drag files and folders back from iCloud Drive into OneDrive the same way.

How to copy files from Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive into iCloud Drive

If you don't want to actually remove files from Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive, but want a secondary security measure for backing up your data, you can make copies of files.

  1. Open Finder from your Mac's dock.
  2. Click on Dropbox, Google Drive, or OneDrive from the sidebar.

  3. Select the file or files for which you want to make copies.
  4. Right-click inside the Finder window.
  5. Select Copy item(s) from the dropdown menu.
  6. Click on iCloud Drive from the sidebar.
  7. Right-click inside the Finder window.
  8. Select Paste item(s) from the dropdown menu.

The feature was originally introduced in Twitter’s Android app back in July.

How to accessorize your rose gold iPhone

Posted on by Cella Lao Rousseau.
Categories: Uncategorized.

What are the best accessories for my rose gold iPhone? Here are our favorites!

The rose gold iPhone has a super unique, modern, and stylish look, regardless of the model you carry around.

Naturally, finding some accessories to match your iPhone is a must, so here are a few perfect pieces of tech to pair with your rose gold iPhone!

Satechi aluminum wireless headphones & stand

Simple and eye-catching (and perfect for any rose gold addict), the Satechi aluminum headphone stand and wireless headphones are a match made in heaven – not just for one another, but also for your rose gold iPhone.

The headphone stand comes with a rubberized grip at the top and the bottom to keep the headphones from falling onto your desk, and the headphones can be used to answer calls and easily adjust your sound-quality and volume. With the headphones' rechargeable battery, you have nearly 16 hours of music and 18 hours of talk time.

The aluminum design on both the headphones and the stand match perfectly, and with the headphones' white accents, they could potentially pass for a high-quality Apple product.

Elago Outfit Matrix rose gold case

What's a rose gold iPhone without the perfect rose gold case? A rose gold iPhone with a big ol' crack in the screen! If you're looking for a must-have rose gold iPhone accessory, then it's a matching rose gold case.

(Side note: I feel like there needs to be a tally for every time I say rose gold over and over again throughout this article. I'm starting to feel a bit like Janis Ian talking about cracking Gretchen Wieners, but I digress.)

The Elago Outfit Matrix rose gold case is relatively protective, minimalist, and pairs perfectly with your iPhone. A raised bezel means that your screen won't get scratched if you lay it on a flat surface, while a solid aluminum and tough polycarbonate design keeps your iPhone protected from drops and bumps.

While some protective cases will add a ton of bulk to your iPhone, the Elago is a great option because it adds less than 3mm to the size of your device, keeping it sleek and clean-looking. On top of all that, the minimalist-looking, rose gold Elago case allows full access to all buttons and ports, meaning you won't have to constantly slide it on and off to charge it or adjust the volume.

Aimus rose gold lightning cable

Charge your rose gold iPhone in style with its pink-tinted soulmate; this durable (yet still super polished and modern) lightning cable from Aimus.

With a full 4-foot length and extra protection added to the lightning portion of the cable to prevent any breakage, coupled with the tough, braided nylon material that envelops the cable's wires, the Aimus rose gold lightning cable is a reliable tool for charging your iPhone at home or on the go.

The cable matches perfectly with rose gold iPhone accessories, making it another lovely and stylish piece to pair with your iPhone. If you wanted, you could even pair it with LAX Gadget's SmartPower 4-Port USB wall charger in rose gold for that extra pop of matching color.

See at Amazon

Mophie Powerstation external battery

Getting double the battery-power for your iPhone from an external battery? Amazing. Getting quadruple the battery-power for your iPhone from an external battery? Pretty nuts. Getting 8 times the battery-power for your iPhone from an external battery and it's in a beautiful shade of rose gold?

Insane, but very possible with the Powerstation external battery from Mophie, in rose gold!

With the Powerstation's dual outlets, you can charge up to two phones or tablets at once. You may think that this makes the battery pack a bit bulky and cumbersome to tote around, but Mophie has designed the Powerstation to be incredibly slim and convenient to carry.

The color of the aluminum finish on the battery pack compliments the rose gold iPhone quite perfectly, and paired with the Aimus rose gold lightning cable, you can't go wrong with charging your rose gold arsenal.

Rose gold 4-in-1 Olloclip

While the Olloclip is a great tool for shooting professional-looking photos and videos with your iPhone, the 4-in-1 Olloclip lens in rose gold just gives a little extra style and elegance to a full day of iPhoneography creativity!

The 4-in-1 piece comes with four (duh) different lenses – a fisheye lens, a wide-angle lens, a 10x macro lens and a 15x macro lens. By unscrewing the larger upper lenses, you can shoot with the macro ones that are built into the Olloclip's framing underneath.

You can use the Olloclip on its own, but pairing it with the Ollocase gives it a little bit more of a secure feel. The clip comes with small rubberized bumpers, which keep it tightly fastened to your case, so when you're shooting with your newest rose gold accessory, you won't have to worry about it falling off and shattering on the ground.

ZAGG rose gold InvisibleShield

While we've mentioned how beautiful the rose gold iPhone is a number of times, the only complaint we have is that there's not enough rose gold. The white face is pretty, but we want our iPhone dripping in rose gold. Luckily, the ZAGG rose gold InvisibleShield has us covered (literally)!

The screen protector is not only a perfect partner for your rose gold iPhone, but it's also a super durable protector that provides edge-to-edge coverage due to its polycarbonate border. That means no chips or cracks should appear if you drop your iPhone, while still providing you a crystal clear view of your screen with no decline in touch sensitivity.

An easy-to-apply adhesive makes sticking your rose gold InvisibleShield to your iPhone effortless and headache-free, and ZAGG's limited lifetime warranty promises a replacement if the protector gets damaged or ruined.

Growing Number of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Devices Affected by Insidious ‘Touch Disease’

Posted on by Juli Clover.
Categories: Uncategorized.
As the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus approach their second birthday, a growing number of users are suffering from what appears to be a latent manufacturing issue that presents as a gray flickering bar at the top of the screen and a display that's unresponsive or less responsive to touch.

In a new blog post and video, repair site iFixit says a number of third-party repair outlets have seen iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models affected by the bug, which appears to be very common. STS Telecom owner Jason Villmer says he sees faulty iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models multiple times a week, while another repair tech in Louisiana sees up to 100 iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices that don't respond well to touch.

"This issue is widespread enough that I feel like almost every iPhone 6/6+ has a touch of it (no pun intended) and are like ticking bombs just waiting to act up," says Jason Villmer, owner of STS Telecom--a board repair shop in Missouri. [...]
iFixit is calling the problem "Touch Disease," and says Apple appears to be aware of the issue based on dozens of complaints on Apple's support forum, but isn't "doing anything about it." Multiple people who brought their iPhones to Apple Stores were told that Apple doesn't recognize it as an issue and nothing could be done as their iPhones were out of warranty.

Putting pressure on the display of an affected iPhone or twisting the device appears to reverse the issue for a short period, but the gray bar returns and touch functionality grows worse and worse until the touchscreen stops functioning all together.

Replacing the display doesn't work as the problem is said to be caused by the touchscreen controller chips soldered to the logic board of the phone, and it's possible the damage is caused by the same structural design flaw that caused the major "Bendgate" controversy.
In both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the Touch IC chips connect to the logic board via an array of itty-bitty solder balls--"like a plate resting on marbles," Jessa explains. Over time, as the phone flexes or twists slightly during normal use, those solder balls crack and start to lose contact with the board.

"At first, there may be no defect at all. Later you might notice that the screen is sometimes unresponsive, but it is quick to come back with a hard reset," Jessa explains. "As the crack deepens into a full separation of the chip-board bond, the periods of no touch function become more frequent."
According to iFixit, the only way to fix the problem is to replace the iPhone, replace the logic board, or replace the Touch ICs on the logic board, something Apple's in-house repair staff is not able to do. iFixit recommends users who are experiencing early symptoms of Touch Disease - an intermittently non-functional touch screen or hints of a gray bar - get their iPhones replaced outright if they're still under warranty.

For those without a warranty, iFixit suggests taking an affected iPhone 6 or 6 Plus to an electronics repair shop able to replace the chips. Apple doesn't approve of third-party repairs, but it may be the only solution until the problem is officially acknowledged by the company.

What’s new in the Home app for iOS 10?

Posted on by Mikah Sargent.

What is the Home app in iOS 10, and what can I do with it? Here's everything you need to check out in the Home app!

Confession: That headline was a trick question. Everything's new in the Home app, because the app's brand new to iOS! After familiarizing myself with the app, here are a few things I think you should check out to get started!

3D Touch all the things!

via GIPHY

Apple is doubling down on 3D Touch functionality in iOS 10, and the Home app is a perfect example of the gesture's effectiveness.

Press (3D Touch) your accessories and Scenes within the Home app and from Control Center to make quick adjustments to temperature, color, brightness, etc., depending on the accessory.

Tip: Press (3D Touch) the Home app on your Home screen to change between Scenes.

Favorites

When you launch the Home app, you're presented with a page of curated Scenes and accessories called Home. These are your Favorite Scenes and Favorite Accessories.

In contrast, the Rooms page shows you all of your HomeKit-enabled accessories, not just your favorites.

Rooms

Rooms are bound to be familiar to anyone who's used HomeKit-enabled accessories in the past. Rooms contain your various HomeKit-enabled accessories — you're encouraged to organize your accessories according to which room they're physically in.

My living room, for example, has three Philips Hue lights and an Ecobee Smart Thermostat. The Home app will also display the Scenes that include the Accessories in your specific room.

Status and Notifications

When you launch the Home app (to the Home page), you'll see your home's name big and bold near the top of the screen. The text below your Home's name is your Home's status.

The status provides an overview of what your HomeKit-enabled accessories are up to. With a quick glance, you can see how many lights are on, the temperature, and more.

You can also enable notifications for certain HomeKit-enabled accessories.

Wallpapers

The Home app lets you personalize the app with custom wallpapers for your Home and your Rooms. If you have multiple houses with HomeKit-enabled accessories, custom wallpapers can help you quickly differentiate between homes. It's also an easy way to differentiate between Rooms within a home.

Home Notes

Home Notes are a little like the dry-erase board on the fridge, or the guest book in an Airbnb location.

If you input notes in the Home Notes section of the app, everyone who's a member of your shared home will be able to see the notes. You can set ground rules (hello, Airbnb hosts), let your kids know you popped out to get groceries, or troll your significant other — the choice is yours.

Automation

"When I leave the house, turn off my bedroom lights and turn up the thermostat."

"If my smoke detector senses smoke, turn on all my lights and set them to red."

Those are just two examples of the tasks you can create with Automation. Ultimately, it's exactly what it sounds like: A way to automate your smart home, based on various triggers and corresponding outcomes.

Home Hubs

Many HomeKit-enabled accessories already offer some form of remote access, but if you'd rather control your lights, thermostat, switches, etc. from one app (the Home app), iOS 10 makes it that much easier with Home Hubs.

Now — along with the fourth-generation Apple TV — your iPad can act as a Home Hub, allowing you to set up automations, access your Accessories from remote locations, and more.

Note: Apple offered similar support for remote access through the third- and fourth-generation Apple TVs, but it never was as reliable as it's been for me in iOS 10.

How to manage iCloud Drive syncing over cellular

Posted on by Cella Lao Rousseau.
Categories: Uncategorized.

If you store a lot of documents in iCloud Drive, and you're on a limited data plan, you may not want apps moving large files around unless you're on Wi-Fi. Cellular data use with iCloud Drive is nowhere nearly as intensive as streaming music or videos, but if you want to make sure not a bit goes by without your say so, you can manage it all in Settings.

How to turn cellular data on or off for iCloud Drive syncing

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on iCloud.

  3. Tap on iCloud Drive.
  4. Scroll all the way to the bottom and turn Off the option for Use Cellular Data.
