App Store changes 'Free' button into...

Apple has today made a small change at the App Store, renaming the "Free" button for zero-cost downloads to "Get." Paid apps continue to show the purchase price. It's not clear why Apple decided to make the change, but it may be a response to ongoing complaints about marketing of free-to-play/"freemium" apps....

External Link: App Store Apps Are No Longer “Free”

Apple has changed the “Free” label on apps with no upfront cost to “Get.” The move is likely due to regulatory concern over the cost of in-app purchases. While some apps are still truly free, many “free” apps require in-app purchases to be usable.

Cisco pays $188M to Rockstar, the Apple-owned patent...

Cisco has doled out a serious chunk of cash to settle its patent lawsuit with Rockstar, a patent-holding company created out of the ashes of Nortel, a Canadian telecom.

The $188-million pre-tax charge was revealed in CIsco's most recent earnings call, and first reported on Monday by the IAM Blog.

Rockstar, which was created by a group of big tech companies including Apple, first sued Google and its customers in October 2013. In January, it sued several cable companies, saying their cable modems infringed Rockstar patents by using the DOCSIS standard. Cisco intervened in that case the following month.

iBank 5: Dr Mac Can Finally Say Goodbye to Quicken

I love managing my finances on my Mac, but I have never liked depending upon Intuit or its Quicken for Mac products. Intuit, as you probably know, has no love for Mac users. Bob "Dr. Mac" LeVitus has been looking for a personal finance solution for the Mac since 1998, and he finally found it: iBank 5.

Review: STM Flip for iPhone 6

Flip will hold no more than two cards — you might be able to fit a third card, but then the cover won’t close as easily. We did find the two small suction cups worked very well for covering the phone’s screen when not in use. The plastic shell in the folio is about what you would expect, offering no button coverage or port protection. Though the case is lightweight, one could also argue it’s a bit flimsy. Pet owners should beware:…

Beefed up iPhone crypto will lead to a child dying,...

The No. 2 official at the Justice Department recently warned top Apple executives that stronger encryption protections added to iPhones would lead to a horrific tragedy, such as a child dying, because police couldn't access a suspect's device, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

The beefed up protections, Apple recently disclosed, mean that even when company officials are served with a court order, they will be unable to retrieve potentially crucial evidence such as photos, messages, or contacts stored on iPhones and iPads. Instead, the data can be accessed only by people who know the passcode that serves as the encryption key.

Justice Department officials wasted no time objecting to the...

Google just bought RelativeWave, the company behind the mobile app prototyping software Form, and with the purchase it’s making the previously $80 Mac app available for free on the Mac App Store. The company made an announcement on its website noting that it will continue working on the Form app after joining Google:

I speak for the team when I say that we’re incredibly humbled by what the community has created with Form. We’ve seen people create designs that we could have never imagined. It’s one of the best feelings in the world to see people using your work.

The team adds that with new help from Google it will be “focused on improving the state of design and development tools.”

Blood bikers: how volunteer motorcyclists are saving...

The Guardian:

Their name might sound a bit ominous, but the 1,500-strong gang…is a long way from the Hell’s Angels.

They’re called the blood bikers: men and women all over Britain who dedicate a few evenings a week to transporting hospital deliveries across the country as stand-ins for the daytime professionals. They are all volunteers, and in 2013 they responded to around 35,000 urgent requests from hospitals, saving the NHS hundreds of thousands of pounds. They take everything from blood and platelets to medicine and breast milk.

Great story about how volunteers on motorcycles transport medical supplies around Britain. Reminds me of another great organization called “Riders for Health” who do something similar in Africa.

When twins take over the town

Narrative:

In 1976, America turned 200 and cities around the country planned bicentennial celebrations. Twinsburg, a suburb of Cleveland, turned the event into double the reason to celebrate by dedicating one day of its bicentennial celebration to twins. Thirty-seven sets of twins attended that first celebration.

The world’s largest gathering of twins and multiples still attracts around 2,000 sets the first weekend of every August.

What a weird, cool place that would be in August.

Google Glass May Be Saved by Obscurity


Whatever happened to Google Glass? In the early days -- was it just a year ago? -- people got punched in bars, bounced from movie theaters, and pulled over in cars for wearing them, and some establishments outright banned "glassholes" from their premises. Google claimed the white "Cotton" beta model sold out when it held a one-day sale of Google Glass Explorer for United States residents at $1,500 a pop in April. However, nine of 16 Glass app devs recently queried said they had suspended work on or abandoned their projects.

Hands-on with Facebook Groups, a spin-off app you’ll...

Facebook’s Groups are one of the network’s original features. They’ve changed over the years, like the rest of the network, but Groups remain incredibly
popular, even though they’re buried in the left rail of your News Feed like afterthoughts. This year, Facebook started to declutter its unwieldy big blue
app by spinning off features into separate, stand-alone services. This week, Facebook Groups got the same treatment with a brand new iOS and Android app that takes the Groups that more than 650 million people use every month and makes them
easily accessible.

In Facebook’s early days, Groups were a fun, throwaway feature. In college, I joined groups for Las Vegas natives, Pulp Fiction fans, residents of my dorm,
and, my personal favorite, a group where everyone recounted the word that knocked them out of the elementary school spelling bee. (Facetious. I still
remember.)

App Store changes ‘Free’ button to ‘Get’, likely due...

Apple has introduced a small but interesting tweak to the way it markets apps on the App Store. As you can see in the screenshot above, non-paid apps are now presented with the word ‘GET’ rather than ‘FREE’. While the reason for the change in how Apple is presenting non-paid apps isn’t clear, it’s likely due to the popularity of ‘freemium’ apps and in-app purchases, something that has been the source of controversy for Apple in the past…

Apple has taken a great deal of flack from customers and consumer protection groups through the years over apps marketed as free that push in-app purchases. The freemium model has been used in some cases to circumvent the lack of app trials on the App Store. For example, a developer may make an app free to download, but require...

However, there are a few great apps out there for just about anyone to use which take into consideration the limits of the platform -- Home Design 3D Gold by developer Anuman has plenty of practical uses....

If you’ve played Monument Valley, you have to play...

Who wasn't impressed with Monument Valley, the visually stunning perception puzzle that has players work their way through an MC Escher-inspired landscape? Despite being somewhat costly ($4) and relatively short (it took me less than three hours to complete it), Monument Valley is easily one of the best mobile games of 2014—perhaps ever. 

Seriously, it's that good.

Switching between views on your Apple Watch won’t...

Apple’s announcement of WatchKit, the tools developers will use to create Apple Watch apps, has provided a few insights into what the device will be like to use. We noted yesterday that there will be a Short Look, with just key information displayed, and a Long Look with more details – illustrated above. The Verge notes that switching between the two views won’t even require you to touch the watch.

The “Short Look” is only seen briefly when you raise your wrist — it’s an app icon, an app name, and some brief information. If the wearer keeps their wrist raised long enough — “after a moment,” according to Apple — the screen changes to a “Long Look” notification, which provides more...

Adobe streamlines transition from Aperture to...

Aperture users worried about transitioning to Lightroom following Apple’s decision to cease support for its full-featured photo editing software will now find life a little easier. The latest version of Lightroom includes a built-in migration tool to import both photos and associated metadata from both Aperture and iPhoto.

Star ratings, keywords, color labels, face tags, GPS data, stacks, hidden files and rejects are all transferred into Lightroom to make the transition as painless as possible.

Apple announced back in June that it was ceasing development on Aperture in favor of a more basic Photos app launching next year – leaving pros and enthusiasts out in the cold. Adobe responded initially with a...

10 Android Lollipop features Apple should '...

Apple and Google are locked in a never-ending game of catch-up. Each time a new version of iOS or Android is announced, there are just as many borrowed features as new ones, as each side studies and pilfers the other’s ideas to find ways to better its own experience. Android L’s Material Design is awfully similar to iOS 7’s flattened design language, and iOS 8’s newfound openness certainly owes a debt to Lollipop’s predecessors.

But neither iOS die-hards nor Android fans should complain. The fact is, there are greener spots of grass on both sides of the fence. Now that we’ve had some time to play with Lollipop, I’ve already found a few features Apple would be smart to incorporate into iOS 9.

The sapphire manufacturing facility in Mesa, Arizona owned by Apple but currently occupied by the now-bankrupt GT Advanced Technologies will eventually be re-purposed by the iPhone maker, according to a report from Mesa City Manager Chris Brady. This could allow some employees, who are looking at possible layoffs as early as this month, to continue working at the facility. Currently, GT Advanced is being allowed to remain in the facility rent-free through the remainder of the year in order to wind down operations....

Unlike the Apple Watch and its associated payment system, PayPal’s app doesn’t require a connected smartphone to use. It also doesn’t support NFC-based transactions. Instead, it...

iPhone 6 vs. 6 Plus Split Among Daring Fireball...

Thanks to this tweet from Dave Rutledge, I figured how to get Google Analytics to show me the split in screen sizes for mobile devices visiting Daring Fireball. Just counting “mobile devices” for the last 7 days:

Device
% Mobile Sessions

320×568 (iPhone 5/5S/5C)
30.1

768×1024 (all iPads)
29.0

375×667 (iPhone 6)
23.7

414×736 (iPhone 6 Plus)
7.0

320×480 (old iPhones)
4.1

Those percentages are only for mobile device sessions. (Mobile devices account for 44 percent of all DF sessions.) Two points of interest to me:

  1. This is more confirmation that the split is around 3-to-1 between the 6 and 6 Plus. As many readers have pointed out, the 6 Plus is still supply constrained, so the split might tilt back toward the 6...

Dr. Raymond Soneira is psychotic.

But psychotic in a good way.

On Tuesday, Soneira released full comparison-based results as to the display color accuracy of assorted tablets and smartphones, including the iPad Air 2 and the iPhone 6 Plus, wherein he studied the science as to what you see is what you get with its colors.

The findings, which included results from tests such as Entire Color Gamut, Facial Skin Tone Colors, Organic Colors and Blue Region from Cyan to Magenta Colors, tested absolute color accuracy and pitched the iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6 Plus, which have been fairly lauded for their displays, to see how they fared against other devices.

QCut Custom Fit Women’s Jeans

If you are a woman who has ever purchased a pair of jeans, you know this process can beâfraught with peril. You have to guess at the random number that is allegedly your size, since it varies from year to year and designer to designer. Then you have to guess close enough that you don't get stuck in them in the dressing room, and you have to hope they aren't too long/short/wide/narrow/high-waisted/low-waisted/whatever. If you find a pair you don't hate, you purchase multiples on the spot, even at full price. You know. In Case. Well, Crystal Beasley decided enough was enough and launched a Kickstarter campaign to fix this. Called QCut (as in cut on cue), Crystal is designing jeans for you. And you. And you, too! They're all custom made, based on five measurements that include shoe size and bra size to help determine body type. This campaign has two weeks left as of today, and even though it's funded, you still may want to get in on it. Jeans that fit make an awesome Christmas gift! (...
