We’re not sure what we’re looking forward to the most when Apple takes the covers off the iPhone 6 – the chance to buy one or the end of all the leaks. Don’t get us wrong, we find the whole cat and mouse thing as much as anyone, but it does eventually start to get little bit silly.

The fact that all iOS apps need to be approved by Apple in order to make their way into the App Store is both a blessing and a curse for the platform, but nobody can deny that it, most of the time at least, guarantees at least some sort of minimum design quality.

It’s that time again folks. You know, the time when we let you in on which paid-for apps have gone free, usually for a limited time while hopefully not just saving you some money, but also giving you the opportunity to pick up some apps that you were on the fence about when they had a dollar sign beside them.

Learning to play the piano properly has never been something that most of us can just walk into cold, but there are techniques that can be used in order to try and make the learning process as easy as possible. Georgia Tech, for example, created some gloves which vibrate in order to help people learn how to play. Ingenious stuff.

It’s a rumor that crops up every year and has Apple supposedly bringing NFC support to whatever iPhone it is working on at the time. This year has been no different, but with perhaps a little more to it this time around. If you’ve been hopeful of an NFC equipped iPhone in the past, then you may be in luck.

If you’re carrying around an iOS device and have even a passing interest in video or the phenomenon that is Instagram then you’ll probably want to check out its latest app if you haven’t already. Called Hyperlapse, the iOS-only app can record time-lapse video that’s ridiculously stable and looks, in all honesty, absolutely terrific.

We’d like to think that most people who use Google’s services are fully aware that the technology giant is monitoring their every move. Literally. But it’s clear that the great unwashed masses have no idea that their Android phones are tracking their location as they go about their business and, if you have Google Now installed on an iPhone, that’s probably doing the same too.

We’re all tech lovers at heart here, and given the fact that you’re reading this then we’re going to go out on a limb and assume you are, too. That assumption means that you’re probably guilty of buying and selling your fair share of smartphones too, just like the rest of us.

Getting files onto iOS devices isn’t always the easiest thing in the world, but apps like GoodReader do make it possible. The key to making a good downloader app is to make sure that it can also view the most popular file types that people are likely to be downloading, otherwise you’re just going to be stuck with files that you can’t do anything with.
