A team of Canadian researchers don't think cleats and studs are the way to go when it comes to winter boots. In fact they've developed what they believe are superior alternatives: ones that use minuscule bits of glass instead. The team has designed b...

Building AWT: Finding a new workflow and the bumps...

It's been over a month since Apple World Today launched, and it has been a whirlwind experience. Everything came together so quickly for AWT that my head was spinning for those first few weeks. Part of the chaos came from the necessary change of doing things one way at TUAW and another at AWT. Even the same posts -- my Daily Deals and Today in the App Store posts -- required a whole new workflow. My colleagues have discussed their experiences; now it is time for me share my first month at AWT.

The biggest overhaul for me with AWT was all the changes I had to make to my daily routine. The tools I previously used and the way I used them, no longer worked at AWT. I had to drop a bomb on my old routine and completely forge a new one. I enjoy changes that require me to check out new apps, but it's always been a leisurely experience. This time, however, I had to adapt quickly and get up running with new tools as soon as possible.

You Should Play: Planet Quest blends music-based...

These days, keeping up with games can be a full-time job. So how do you separate the signal from the noise, the wheat from the chaff, the Temple Runs from the Temple Jumps? Allow us to help by regularly selecting a game You Should Play.

We’ve seen attempts to bring console-style music games to iPhone and iPad, with touch-based entries like Tap Tap Revenge and even adaptations of Rock Band and Guitar Hero—but they’ve been serviceable at best without instrument controllers. And curiously, all of those have since been removed from the App Store!

Instead, the best mobile rhythm games have been those designed from the ground up for touch: Experiences that connect you to the music with a tap, free of excessive interface elements or complicated gameplay. I’m talking Groove Coaster, Taito’s amazing blend of electronic music and...

The inside story of how Apple’s ResearchKit was born

Great story, not only for this fantastic bit:

After Friend’s talk, O’Reilly approached the doctor, and, in typical tight-lipped Apple fashion, said: “I can’t tell you where I work, and I can’t tell you what I do, but I need to talk to you,” Friend recalls. Friend was intrigued, and agreed to meet for coffee.

Mars One Could Turn Out to Be Mars Zero


Mars One, a Dutch nonprofit organization aiming to land the first humans on Mars and establish a space colony by 2025, appears to have run into trouble. Astrophysicist Joseph Roche, one of the 100 shortlisted candidates, was excited about the project until recently. However, his disposition has soured. At best, things are not quite what they appear to be, according to Roche. He pointed to an assessment of the Mars One mission that concludes, in essence, that the project is not feasible within its established parameters.

Force Touch features in iMovie illustrate the power...

Haptic feedback features found in a recent iMovie update illustrate the power of Apple’s new Force Touch trackpad to provide feedback, not just as an input device, says one of the pioneers of the technology.

Freelance film editor Alex Gollner first noticed Apple was using the trackpad to provide tactile feedback in a recent update to iMovie.

When dragging a video clip to its maximum length, you’ll get feedback letting you know you’ve hit the end of the clip. Add a title and you’ll get feedback as the title snaps into position at the beginning or end of a clip. Subtle feedback is also provided with the alignment guides that appear in the Viewer when cropping clips.

Apple showed-off the Force Touch feature when announcing the new...

Nintendo making mobile games was inevitable, and it...

For players of all stripes, the name Nintendo is synonymous with gaming. But for die-hard enthusiasts—at least, the ones not blinded by nostalgia—it’s a name also associated with stubbornness, and a slowness to adapt to market changes and emerging trends.

Like when Nintendo opted not to embrace CD-ROMs in the mid-90s, instead sticking with expensive-to-produce, space-limited cartridges for the Nintendo 64. That allowed the PlayStation to take over the market, but of course, there’s an extensive backstory to that whole fiasco. Nintendo has also run into issues with its chilly relationships with third-party developers, its frustratingly slow embrace of online gaming, and its insistence on using aging tech to power recent hardware.

Launcher for iPhone returns after six months

In September 2014, developer Greg Gardner received a call from Apple about his app, Launcher. The app featured Today widgets that launched a variety of third-party apps, and that made Cupertino nervous. "The short story is," Greg told me, "[Apple] told me to remove the widget or they'd take down the app. They also told me that they are usually restrictive when it comes to new functionality and that they sometime loosen the restrictions over time." Apparently that time has come, as Launcher returned to the App Store this week after a six-month absence.

But it wasn't an easy process.

Greg spent the last six months working on "various takes" on Launcher. In January, he released Music Launcher, which we reviewed here. Music...

How Secure Is the Apple Watch?


Apple typically has impeccable timing for its new product introductions, but that may not be the case with its new smartwatch. In a gala event last week, the company announced model and pricing details for its Apple Watch. That came just six days after questions were raised about the security of its mobile payment platform. Those questions haven't gone away, and now they're also being asked about Apple's smartwatch. As more wearable gadgets hit the market, they'll start appearing on the radar of hackers.

Ulysses for Mac 2.0 and Ulysses for iPad: A dynamic...

For developers, just updating one app or publishing a new one can be a major undertaking. So imagine what the team at The Soulmen went through recently when they updated both their Ulysses for Mac Version 2.0 text editing app and created a new companion iPad app. After a long beta period for both apps, they’re now available and I’m happy to say that they’re both fantastic.

First, let’s look at Ulysses for Mac 2.0 (US$44.99), which has the distinction of being one of current Editors’ Choice picks on the Mac App Store. I’ve used Ulysses on and off for years to write blog posts offline, and the latest iteration definitely shows that the developers have thought about the writing process.

Enhanced customer targeting is also being added to the iAd offering. User phone numbers and email addresses can be anonymously compared against advertisers’ in-house data. iAd Workbench will also allow advertisers to target specific segments of the iTunes Radio userbase, utilizing the Customer Match feature that has been available to in-app ads since it was released last year.

As with banners and other iAds, users who opt-out of targeted advertisments will be exempted from the service. While...

Apple has released a new security update for OS X Yosemite, and a separate version of the update for Macs released in early 2015, including the new 13″ MacBook Pro with Force Touch trackpads and the upcoming MacBook.

The update is available for users running OS X 10.10.2 in the Updates tab of the Mac App Store, or as a standalone installer at the links above. Users on the public beta of OS X 10.10.3 apparently do not need the update, since the newer operating system likely already includes fixes for the problems addressed by this release.

Satechi has a great idea for anyone who spends time around water with their iPhone, whether it’s a day at the beach, trout fishing on your favorite stream, or paddling a kayak on the local pond. It’s called the GoMate (US$19.99, affiliate link) and it’s a waterproof case for any iPhone except the iPhone 6 Plus.

Basically, you can think of GoMate as fancy Zip-loc bag with some additional features that make it perfect for fun in the sun (or rain). The GoMate comes in three colors — orange, black and white — and all you need to do to get full IPX8 waterproof protection in up to 20 feet of water is to slide your iPhone in top first with the screen facing the clear material, squeeze the “zipper” closed to ensure watertightness, and then fold over the Velcro™ tab to ensure that your phone is locked in. There’s an included...

Searching for ‘antivirus’ now only shows games or Find My iPhone-esque apps.

Apple has seemingly decided to crack down on antivirus and antimalware apps, removing them from the App Store. Although there has been no official statement from Apple on a policy change, Apple’s loose guidelines allow them to pull pretty much anything at any time, particularly something like antivirus which has questionable utility within the sandboxed iOS environment of iPhones and iPads.

One casualty of the removal is Intego’s VirusBarrier, which claims that this takedown was not specific to its product with Apple deciding the entire category of antivirus products is now off-limits.

Five ways to fund your iOS or OS X app addiction

I enjoy apps and can’t get enough of them. I’m always installing the latest new apps or app updates just to check them out. Though fun, these impulse purchases can get expensive. Over the years, I’ve adopted several reliable methods to help fund my iOS and OS X app addiction.

Sign up for beta access

Many app developers run beta programs that allow you test out apps that are under development. You get the app for free under a non-disclosure agreement and provide feedback to developers. It's a win-win situation for app lovers -- not only do you get access to unreleased versions of apps, you also get to play a critical role in the app development process. Readdle, Omni Group and others have beta programs.

Analyst predicts Apple streaming TV service to be...

No one’s quite sure how much an Apple streaming/Web TV service would cost per month, but guesses are being made.

Rod Hall of J.P. Morgan issued a note to investors on Wednesday, in which he said a US$40-per-month price tag for a subscription TV service would be too high.

In his view, the incremental cost of cable television service from a provider like Comcast, in addition to basic Internet, is less than US$40 per month. And so if Apple were to exceed the price of a basic cable package, there would be very little reason for consumers to “cut the cord” and go with a streaming-only solution from Apple.

Apple Store employees undergoing final Watch...

With April 10th and the launch of the Apple Watch approaching, Apple Store retail employees have been receiving special training on the device, but special meetings will take place at retail stores starting next week to give all retail employees a chance to go hands-on with the watch.

Many employees will see the watch in person for the first time at this point, and Apple will use the meetings to give them further training on the device. In its training materials, Apple has told employees they will “be the first to see Apple Watch, the first to try it on and the first to share it with the world.”

After that training period, the Apple...

Mini-review: Oneadapter Twist/Plus World Charging...

Standardizing on USB was arguably the best thing ever to happen to gadget lovers. Instead of having an unholy mess of chargers cluttering up your home, you just need a few USB cables and something to plug them into. I’ve previously reviewed the Lightning Rabbit Triforce and Truffol Station 5 USB chargers, which offer stylish options for the home or office. We’ve also reviewed a bunch of others.

When travelling, though, I pack light. I tend to just charge everything from my MacBook Pro, which is convenient but doesn’t offer the fastest of charging speeds. The Oneadapter Twist...

There will come a time, in a future not so far away, when it will be illegal for the average person to drive a car, predicted Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Autonomous vehicles will be exponentially safer, he said Tuesday at Nvidia's 2015 GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, California. Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang took the stage with Musk for an unrehearsed conversation about the future of cars and Tesla's aspirations to propel its electric vehicles into fully autonomous territory.

The Swiss watch market is bracing for the smartwatch movement, with many fearing another downturn for traditional mechanical timepieces much the same as when low cost Quartz movements were first introduced.

We’ve already seen the potential of Apple’s ResearchKit platform to sign up large numbers of participants to medical studies in an incredibly short time, but a reported conversation between the founder of an open science non-profit and an Apple VP suggests that the potential goes far beyond this.

Fusion, in an extensive profile, reports that Apple may be intending to collect anonymised health data in a central database accessible to medical researchers around the world, enabling each to benefit from that shared data to forward their own studies. The vision was initially put forward at a conference back in September, long before ResearchKit was announced, by Stephen Friend, the founder of Seattle-based Sage Bionetworks, a...

Apple May Start Accepting Android Phones As Trade-Ins

HughPickens.com writes Bloomberg reports that according to a person with knowledge of the matter, Apple plans to start accepting non-Apple devices as trade-ins as the company seeks to extend market-share gains against Android smartphones. Apple is seeking to fuel even more iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales after selling 74.5 million units in the last three months of 2014. Thanks to record sales, shipments of iPhones surpassed Android in the US with 47.7 percent of the market compared with Android's 47.6 percent. According to Apple CEO Tim Cook Apple "experienced the highest Android switcher rate in any of the last three launches in the three previous years." While Android phones don't hold their value as well as iPhones, it still makes sense for Apple Stores to accept them, says Israel Ganot, former CEO of Gazelle Inc., an online mobile device trade-in company. "Apple can afford to pay more than the market value to get you to switch over," says Ganot, "on the idea that you're going to fall...

The Road Ahead for Self-Driving Cars


While several automakers are currently in the process of developing autonomous vehicles, the road ahead for self-driving cars could be long, with numerous obstacles to overcome. According to the recent Autonomous Vehicles 2015-2035 report, published by IDTechEx, the challenges and technology have much in common. Autonomous vehicles require the integration of cameras, odometers, accelerometers, gyroscopes, GPS, sonar, leveraging sensors, green credentials and stealth of electric powertrains.

Of all the stereotypes we hear about Apple owners, there is perhaps none so enduring as the guy writing a novel on his MacBook in Starbucks. Well, one November, I became that guy. Fast-forward a few years, and I have a 110,000-word technothriller ready to unleash on an unsuspecting public.

I’d had an idea for a novel years earlier, but I’d initially done what almost everyone does when they have an idea for a novel: absolutely nothing. The gap between having an idea and having a completed novel seemed too enormous to contemplate, especially when it would have to be combined with, you know, working for a living.

But then someone told me about something called NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month....

Pixelmator has today released a new update for the iPad version ($9.99) of its popular image editor. Version 1.1 includes a brand new watercolor painting feature, which can be used to create brand new pieces of art from a blank canvas or add stylistic additions to existing images and photos. Brushes overlay new colors additively with soft radiuses to create beautiful blends and shading. Pixelmator says they spoke to real artists to help design the brush strokes. It feels really nice to use.

Although watercolor painting is the headline addition, Pixelmator 1.1 also includes a new Color Picker with a swatch of previously selected colors, an updated rendering engine for better performance and much more. You have to see it in action … (video below)

FREAKish apps still have security holes

The web security exploit known as FREAK that I discussed last week was patched by Apple days after it was discovered two weeks ago. FREAK relied on a configuration issue in web servers combined with a flaw for backwards compatibility in many software libraries used to create a secure connection. But the patch only affected Apple’s operating systems—not all apps.

This highlights how apps can remain vulnerable due to developers’ choices. And Apple’s FREAK update only fixed the problem in iOS 8.2, OS X 10.8, 10.9, and 10.10. While I addressed part of that last week, there’s more to say.

Why Meerkat, the breakout app of SXSW, is more than...

AUSTIN—Meerkat is either the most annoying or groundbreaking app to strike it big at the South by Southwest Interactive festival. Live-streaming video, particularly on Twitter, has incredible potential: Meerkat has already been used to show the world a demonstration from Ferguson and a U.S. Secretary of Commerce swearing-in ceremony. But most of the 3-week-old iOS app’s 100,000-plus users are live-streaming complete garbage, like endless shaky clips of other people using Meerkat.

Early adopters, journalists, and brands love Meerkat because it’s a new platform to experiment with, but that doesn’t mean much in terms of longterm mainstream success. There’s a virtual graveyard full of apps that caught on at SXSW and promptly flamed out in the real world. But Meerkat has two advantages: More than two years of back-end development work to ensure high-quality live-streaming,...

iRig 2 unveiled

Just like its predecessor, the new iRig 2 plugs directly into the mini jack input of a mobile device. It lets musicians send an instrument signal to apps, such as IK’s AmpliTube, while also providing on-board output for real-time monitoring.

iRig 2 now comes with gain control, which lets users precisely adjust the input gain of their instrument to match their mobile device. This means that it can be customized to always provide the best sound, no matter what type of guitar, bass or line-level instrument or device is used.

Its new 1/4″ amplifier output, in addition to its traditional 1/8″ headphone output, allows iRig 2 to be plugged directly into a guitar amplifier or powered speakers without an adaptor. This helps to keep all cable connections tidy and organized.

A new FX/THRU switch allows iRig 2 to send either a wet or dry signal through the device. This means that guitarists can play live with an amplifier and use their mobile device with a tuner app, such...
