Home grown Steven Spielbergs have known about Vimeo’s existence for quite some time. In fact, Vimeo has been a hot bed for independent and amateur directors since 2004. Different than YouTube, Vimeo has an exclusive dedication to user-made video and does not allow commercial content.
As of March last year, Vimeo had over 3 million members and was averaging more than 16,000 uploads daily. They are looking to expand on that success. Last week, the official Vimeo iPhone app launched in the App Store for free, and it’s got some some big features… Read More
Remember when the official Twitter app added the Dick.. er.. Quick Bar in a recent update? The Quick Bar was Twitter’s attempt at “sharing information” with users. It was also a clever revenue option for displaying promoted tweets.
Twitter has finally killed the Quick Bar. After a brief and painful run, the Quick Bar has been removed from the official Twitter app in a new update. Read More
It appears that Adobe has been working on porting a full-featured version of their extremely popular photo editing software over to Apple’s iOS. Obviously the iPad is their device of choice due to it’s 10″ display and advanced multitouch capabilities.
Despite Apple’s disagreement with Adobe on their Flash platform, I’m sure they would be happy to welcome an iPad Photoshop application of this caliber. Adobe took the opportunity at their annual Photoshop World event to preview what they have in the pipeline for tablet devices.
PhotoShop World 2011 attendees were treated to a demo of a version of Photoshop running on an Apple iPad with a pretty slick interface. The software seemed to be lightyears ahead of Adobe’s current iPad offering, Photoshop Express.
Check out the video below of the event to see a live demo of Adobe’s tablet concept. It supports layers and allows you to mix colors together like a painter on a palette. It really gives you a good idea of what to expect from future tablet-oriented software.
Would you use Photoshop or any other app to do heavy editing on your iPad?
Mac OS X Software company Digiarty is well known for its MacX software lineup. Their software has a reputation for being extremely easy to use for the not-so-tech-savvy. Well, it appears they are trying to make that same name for themselves in the iPhone transfer app industry.
We’ve seen several iPhone transfer software titles in the last few years. i-Funbox is a popular one, so is iPhone Explorer. Heck, a lot of folks even use the SSH method to transfer files back and forth to their iPhone. What does Digiarty’s MacX iPhone Mounter have that the others don’t? Read More
Doodle Jump has been one of the most popular iOS games ever since its launch, and it has received several updates throughout the year. The latest update brings one of the most highly awaited features: online multiplayer.

In iOS 4.3, Apple has supposedly limited the speed of web apps added to the iPhone’s home screen. Develepors and users have been reporting that web-based applications launched from an independent springboard icon are loading more than 2x slower than sites opened in Mobile Safari.

There are always plenty of Apple rumors out there, and sometimes it can be difficult to distinguish between which rumors are credible, and the stories that are made up for shock effect.
While the below infographic is meant to be comical, it actually does a great job at laying out the Apple rumor publishing process. If you aren’t familiar with how Apple rumors form, this image will give you a good idea of the process.
Stay tuned for the infographic after the break… Read More
The world rejoiced on January 11th of this year as Verizon Wireless announced it would become the 2nd U.S. carrier to sell Apple’s popular iPhone. People weren’t excited because it would bring new features to the iPhone, they were excited because a different carrier was finally offering the device.
Since its introduction in 2007, the iPhone has been exclusive to AT&T. Because of that, they have taken a lot of heat over their network’s ability to withstand the heavy data usage. They’ve even recently lost coverage battles with Verizon, as they just haven’t had the network capacity to support all of the extra traffic… Read More
Retail chains don’t just make money on the handset you buy, they make a killing from selling accessories too. If you have ever purchased any type of portable electronic, particularly a smartphone, you know what the clerk’s first comment is: “You’re going to need a case.” And he’s usually right.
I would generally recommend a case for the iPhone, screen protectors are a good buy too. There are also a lot of accessories that you don’t necessarily need. But if they make themselves appear to be a necessity, you as the customer are more apt to buy. That being said, one look at the new i’m, and you’ll see why your iPhone needs this new accessory… Read More
It’s no doubt that Apple products tend to stand out. They are very sleek and expensive-looking, and also worth a lot of money. All of these characteristics make Apple products a target for thieves looking to make a quick buck.
We’ve reported on Apple retail locations getting robbed in the past, but we haven’t ever heard a story quite like this. Cult of Mac is reporting that a Chicago woman died yesterday due to injuries she suffered in a mugging that occurred Monday afternoon…. Read More
We’ve all watched in awe as Firemint showed off their gorgeous Real Racing app on a big screen HDTV. No they aren’t a console company. The iPad 2 is so powerful it can support the output of full 1080p video to an HDTV.
With Apple’s new HDMI adapter they released alongside the iPad 2, connecting your tablet to the big screen was supposed to be easier than ever, right?
Not according to inventive hackers Eric Govoruhk and Kelly McAteer. These two managed to put together a wireless adapter for the HDMI port that would allow you to send the HDMI signal wirelessly to a receiver tapped into the back of your T.V.
They even fit this adapter into a molded iPad 2 case, so everything still looks nice and clean. Not only that, but they completed the entire project with materials bought at their local electronics store.
The hack involves an Apple Digital AV Adapter which is hooked into a wireless HDMI transmitter, and a battery capable of powering the transmitter for up to 2 hours. The total cost of the project was just under $300.
They claim that wireless presentations were the goal behind this project, but this could open up a world of possibilities for developers. While Firemint’s racing game looked cool on the big screen, the HDMI cable would certainly limit your game play.
Something like this would enable wireless, big screen gaming from your iPad at a fairly affordable price, as mass production would certainly drive costs down. Or we could see Apple do something with AirPlay that would give similar benefits at little or no costs.
They go over what they used to make the adapter in the video below, would you attempt to do something like this with your iPad 2?
The Windows jailbreak tool, Sn0wbreeze, was recently updated to perform a tethered jailbreak on iOS 4.3.1. We told you about the newest beta release a couple days ago, and many of you have successfully been able to jailbreak your iPhone on 4.3.1.
As rumors continue to fly about Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5, it’s easy to forget that Apple may indeed be cooking up a smaller version of their hit smartphone. The gossip started back in 2009 when rumors were claiming the possibility of an iPhone Nano launch that fall.
Well, obviously there was no such introduction and the story kind of died out. Then earlier this year, media giants Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal reignited the rumors with claims of confirmation that the iPhone Nano existed… Read More
The latest in iPhone 5 rumors comes from a Chinese supply chain. Macotakara.jp has claimed that Apple hasn’t even started ordering components for its next gen iPhone.
We’ve already heard that the iPhone 5 probably won’t be announced this June at WWDC, and that the release date could be pushed back to a fall 2011 date. If Apple hasn’t ordered parts for the iPhone 5, there’s almost no way that we’ll see a new iPhone this year… Read More
If this report is true, this year will look very different for Apple. The company’s product cycle has always been fairly predictable, but circumstances surrounding the iPhone point to an unusual set of releases this year.

On Monday, we reported on the fact that an untether had indeed been accomplished. Shortly thereafter, via Twitter, MuscleNerd confirmed that the Dev Team is implementing that untether into their upcoming jailbreak.

On March 20, 2011, a deal was reached between the 2nd largest wireless carrier in the U.S. and the 4th largest. This deal of epic proportions involves $39 billion dollars and the making of a wireless network that would top even Verizon’s giant reach of 100 million customers.
What does everyone else have to say about this? Well Sprint has been pretty public with how it feels about the T-Mobile takeover. BGR reported last week that Sprint CEO Dan Hesse made on the record comments about the merger and that it would “Stifle Innovation” in the wireless industry… Read More
Do you enjoy listening to music? Do you use Facebook or Twitter? If so, then you fall into the target audience that Schematic Labs is banking on for their latest iOS app. SoundTracking made its debut at the huge Austin, TX SXSW (South by Southwest) conference last week.
The purpose of the iPhone app is really quite simple. You are given multiple ways to input the song you are listening to, and then given the opportunity to share that music with your Foursquare, Facebook, and Twitter friends. I know it sounds kind of vanilla, but the app is good at what it does… Read More
