You’ve heard of the Apple iPhone right? You know, the revolutionary device released in 2007, that changed the way we think about smartphones and pretty much made sure that other manufacturers had to raise their game when it came to cell phone design?

Folders for iOS were introduced back in 2010 with iOS 4 but, for people who like to install dozens of apps, the feature is quite limited in functionality: You are only allowed to place 12 apps inside each folder and you can’t place a folder within a folder. To get enhanced folders, you have no choice but to jailbreak your iOS device and install folder-enhancing tweaks.

When Apple released its latest and most changed version of iOS two weeks ago, bringing us up to version number 5.0, there was little-to-no doubt that the update would be considerable. If there is one thing that the iOS eco-system has over its Android competition, it’s the fact that users tend to update their handsets and tablets to the latest version of iOS.

All this time, the iPhone that you have always kept really close to your heart, has been watching, rather stalking you. Security researchers revealed that since the iOS 4 update, iPhone has been tracking your location down and storing it in a secret hidden file which is replicated to your computer once it’s synchronized with your device.

Those of you who have been following us on Twitter and / or Facebook may already know that I recently got my hands on Samsung Omnia 7 which is powered by Microsoft Windows Phone 7. After spending 24 hours with it, I am absolutely in love with the fact how different it is than both iOS and Android. While the version 1.0 of Windows Phone 7 has its shares of annoyances like: no multitasking, no copy-paste, and the inability to manually assign IP addresses etc, but the new and different experience totally out numbered all the lows (which will be fixed with an OTA update anyway) for me.

A little heads up to all our readers, the iOS 4 Folders enhancing app FolderEnhancer – which we previewed on 18th September – IS OUT NOW!

Folders – that first came to iOS with version 4 – is a rather interesting way of handling apps on Springboard. Sure, other platforms (like Android, for instance) already had folders but once again, as with multitasking and copy-paste, Apple might have implemented the feature last but they also implemented it best.

While this is no complete port (like Android was to iPhone), it is still apparently newsworthy. iSpazio picked this video up which shows a near-perfect iOS clone running on the HTC T-Mobile myTouch 3G (horrible name, btw).

Back when iOS 4 was released, it had all sorts of performance issues when it ran on older devices such as iPhone 3G. Last month, Jobs confirmed that a new software update will fix some performance woes of iPhone 3G running iOS 4.x. Final GM Build of iOS 4.1 (developers only) was released this week for iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G and iPod touch and Lifehacker has a video up for us, comparing both iOS 4.0 and iOS 4.1 running on iPhone 3G. The difference is quite noticeable in some cases as can be seen in the video embedded below.

Developer-only test units of Windows Phone 7 are already out since last month. Previously we saw how Windows Phone 7 web browsing stacks up against iPhone 3GS running iOS 4. This time, Pocketnow brings an exclusive look at the web browsing experience with Internet Explorer on WP7, and compares it with Safari on iPhone 4 running iOS 4.x, and Nexus One running Android 2.2 Froyo.

Not so long ago, we covered about Apple’s rumored plans to launch a new iMac with a multitouch display which will run a iOS 4 layer on top of OS X to use touchscreen capabilities. Well it looks like we are finally going to see a touchscreen computer from Apple after all. A new interesting patent has just popped up which shows a touchscreen capable iMac dubbed as the “Apple iMac Touch”.

Did you ever felt the need to close all the apps in one go which are running in background on any of your iDevice running iOS 4.x? While multitasking in iOS 4 and above is useful, it may slow down things a bit if too many apps are backgrounded, specially on iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G (Jailbroken with Multitasking enabled) which have half the RAM of iPhone 4. So instead of killing all the apps and processes manually in multitasking tray (aka Task Switcher) to free up the RAM, you can close them all in one tap with “Remove Background” toggle for SBSettings.
