Apple is looking for some fresh blood to join its iLife and iWork development teams and “re-imagine how user interfaces should be built and work”, a series of job ads posted on its web site indicates. In addition to engineers in the iLife Frameworks QA department, Apple is also seeking a QA engineer to help test new features in iPhoto, a Senior User Interface Designer for iWork and two Senior Software Engineer positions which explicitly mention improving the user interface of iLife apps… Read More
Apple Sunday afternoon posted a pair of television commercials for the iPad mini. Unlike the inaugural ad which focuses on the GarageBand app, these new clips highlight Apple’s own iPhoto and iBooks apps for the tablet, the former provided as a $5 download. Using the effective side-by-side format, the first commercial, named Photos and see above, takes us through the various photo management and editing capabilities of the iPhoto app.
The other is called Books and shows off various iBooks. As you’d expect, both apps behave exactly like on full-sized iPads. The ads are available as QuickTime streams from Apple’s home page and via Apple’s YouTube channel. I’ve included the Books commercial right after the break… Read More
With today’s release of iOS 6 and OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2, Apple has updated its Podcasts app with support for iCloud subscription syncing. Just a few minutes later, updates to Apple’s other apps went live in iTunes, including iLife and iWork apps and utils like Find My Friends, Remote, AirPort Utility and more. With so many third-party apps being updated for iOS 6 support as we speak, you may want to prioritize your downloads. Here’s what’s new in Apple’s own updated apps for your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad… Read More
The big news last week was of course the new iPad and Apple TV launches. For that reason, we supplemented our normal deluge of jailbreak videos with some iPad and Apple TV unboxings, comparisons, and the like. But that’s not to say that there weren’t some striking jailbreak videos created last week, because there were.
Please be sure to share our iPhone, iPad, and iOS video guides by spreading our posts on Twitter and Facebook. Read More
iPhoto was the big new app release that Apple touted at its new iPad media event, but the bad news is that it requires iOS 5.1.
For those of us with jailbroken iPhone 4S’ and iPad 2′s, this places us in an interesting predicament.
Since there is no way to jailbreak iOS 5.1 on these devices, updating now would not only prevent us from jailbreaking, but it would also prevent us from downgrading back to iOS 5.0.1 now that Apple has closed the signing window for that firmware.
So, what to do? Fortunately, there’s an easy workaround to this problem, and we’re going to walk you through the process on video… Read More
When Apple announced iPhoto for iOS at the press event for the new iPad, the company chose not to make the app compatible for the first generation device, leaving many customers out in the cold.
It is of course true that many original iPad owners may be looking to upgrade this year, but for those are still happy with their two-year-old devices, there is light at the end of the tunnel, with a relatively simple little hack allowing iPhoto to be installed on their devices. As is always the case though, there is a downside to proceedings.
For those that just want to forge ahead regardless, here’s what you’ll need to do… Read More
Yesterday we reported that Apple’s new iPhoto app for iOS is using the company’s own internal mapping solution instead of Google’s. This was a big deal because Apple has used Google Maps in nearly everything for the last 5 years.
Well it looks like we got it partially right. The maps used in iPhoto’s geotagging service isn’t Google Maps. But it isn’t Apple’s either. As it turns out, the data is coming from an open-source mapping company called OpenStreetMap… Read More
While we’ve already outlined most of iPhoto’s components, a new discovery has been made regarding one of its features. It appears that the app doesn’t use Google Maps for any of its GPS-related tasks… Read More
Apple has just released its promised iPhoto for iOS to the iTunes App Store. The new app, available for both the iPhone and iPad, will allow you to edit and manage your photos on the go for only $4.99… Read More
Apple has been slowly porting its popular suite of iLife applications from the Mac to iOS over the last 12 months. There’s iMovie for iOS, and GarageBand. And now the company has just introduced iPhoto for iPad.
Just like its Mac OS counterpart, iPhoto for iPad is a photo management app that will “give you great new ways to browse through all of your photos, and has truly groundbreaking ways to edit those photos.” Read More
