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.
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.
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).
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”.
Boy Genius Report is reporting about a block of low level operating system code found in iOS 4 which reveals codenames for CDMA iPhone 4 and the next-gen iPad. Their sources at Apple has confirmed that the queries you see in the screenshot below refers to CDMA iPhone (on Verizon) and iPad 2 and that they are about to hit the field testing stage. Also these new devices are said to auto-activate, bypassing iTunes for activation. Apple probably has done it so that carriers may not be able to find anything in the activation logs.
I was trying to install all those tweaks and mods which I previously had on iPhone 3GS on to my iPhone 4 only to find out that some of the more important and popular apps were still not compatible with the Apple’s latest handset. Then I came around this list of iPhone and iOS 4.x jailbreak compatibility list which does a good job in keeping you up to date with what's working and what's not for your version of handset and OS.
