“The new YouTube update for iPhone and iPad sucks”

That is the #1 comment I’ve seen so far throughout the days since YouTube decided to update its application to the latest version that everyone thought that it’s just going to fix some bugs.

September 4, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0


We have seen many popular web browsers make its ways to the mobile devices like iOS and Android. However, something that a lot of people are waiting for is the official Firefox browser for iPhone and iPad. Mozilla, the team behind Firefox has announced that they’re working on Apple’s Firefox back in December of last year. Recently, a selected number of beta testers were able to get their hand on the beta version and we think that it’s stable enough for Mozilla to release their first public preview to normal users.

With that being said, FireFox Public Preview for iOS is now available for download. But there is a little catch, though, the application is currently downloadable for those in New Zealand only. Of course, it will be released worldwide in a couple of days. For now, you can check out some of the outstanding features in Firefox.

iOS 7 Tip: Use App Store Wish List to Save Your Desired Apps

September 25, 2013 — by Simon Ng0


You come across an app in App Store but for whatever reasons you’re not ready to purchase it. Probably you think the app is too expensive and you want to wait for a discount. Or the app size is too large for download while you’re on the road. You want to get it until you get a Wi-Fi connection. The same goes for songs, books, movies in iTunes Store.

In the past, you may jot down the items somewhere (say, by using Reminders) to remind yourself. With the release of iOS 7, it provides a new feature that allows you to save your desired apps into a wish list.

Why The New iOS 6 App Store Is Great For Both Developers and Users

September 22, 2012 — by Simon Ng6


The recent launch of iOS 6 has caused quite a stir amongst developers and users in the blog and webosphere. Particularly with the new redesign of the app store.

The main argument against it, is that it shows you just one app at a time, instead of 5. This – developers argue, will make people, “less likely to try out apps that aren’t at the top of the results” and that, “some great apps will get buried and people just won’t have the time or the patience to get to them”.
