Fandango app updated with new design, new rating system and more

Published on April 16, 2014 by in Apple, Apple Bytes, World

fandango 1

Whether you use it or not, the Fandango Movies app for iOS is a fairly big deal. Not only does it offer up movie info and trailers, but it also facilitates theater ticket purchases. In fact, you can start the process with Siri, as Fandango is deeply integrated into the assistant.

Anyway, the app got a major makeover this morning, with the release of Fandango 6.0. You’ll notice the visual changes right away—particularly in movie pages, theater lists—as well as the all-new ratings system, spotlight carousel, and a number of other enhancements…(…)

On Apple’s transition to larger-screened iPhones…

Published on April 16, 2014 by in Apple, Apple Bytes, World

iPhone 6 mockup (Settings, Sam Beckett 001)

We’ve seen our fair share of the supposedly leaked technical drawings, front panel parts, third-party cases and manufacturing molds concerning Apple’s next iPhone, but what about bigger-screened apps?

A form factor change will probably yield a higher screen resolution so developers will need to optimize apps for 4.7 and 5.5-inch canvases. The larger 5.5-inch iPhone reportedly got delayed over production issues so we’ll sharpen our focus on the 4.7 incher.

Now, current iPhones rock 640-by-1,136 screens, resulting in a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch (ppi). Should the next iPhone come outfitted with a larger 4.7-inch screen at the same 326ppi, its resolution is going to increase to about 756-by-1,344 pixels.

Quickly, do the math in your head: that’s 40 percent more pixels for the apps and content you care about. Sweet, no?

I have a few smart mockups and some thoughts to share with you on what apps could look like on a larger-screened iPhone 6 and what Apple can do to weather this transition…(…)

Real Racing 3 updated with new ‘open wheel’ vehicles, expanded roster and more

Published on April 16, 2014 by in Apple, Apple Bytes, World

real racing 3 1

The new vehicles fall under the new ‘Open Wheelers’ category, and include classics such as the Caterham Seven 620R, Ariel Atom 3.5 and Atom V8. The 2014 Porsche 911 RSR and Hyundai Veloster Turbo have also been added…(…)

Auki Is A Lightweight Quick Compose & Quick Reply Tweak By Surenix

Published on April 14, 2014 by in Apple, Apple Bytes
Auki is a new jailbreak tweak that takes the quick reply and quick compose feature to a whole new level. The tweak has been developed by the renowned developer Bensge, who has made sure it’s free from unnecessary bloat. So how does it stack up against Messages+ and other similar tweaks? Let’s find out. 
Auki allows you to enable a quick compose interface through an Activator gesture, or a swipe down when you’re in NC. You can begin by typing a contact name and the tweak automatically fetches them. Multiple names can be added but unfortunately, you need to cancel the quick compose window and re-invoke in order to delete any names. In the text field, you can also insert a photo apart from inputting text content. 

The bottom of quick compose window has three buttons to open, send and cancel. The cancel button closes the app without sending messages. Open button opens the stock Messages app, where the app opens the conversation thread. The send button will reflect the type of message to be sent – an SMS or iMessage. 

Coming over to the Quick reply option, they are initiated from the lock screen or NC or directly from banner notifications. The interface opens through the blue reply button on the right side of banner notification. The quick replay recipients are already populated, and the send button as in case of the quick compose window is replaced by a reply button. Also, below the name of a contact, you’re relying to rests of the contact information utilized by the sender, which can be an email address or a phone number. 

The silent mode that can be activated through the silent button will suppress sounds for notification banners, vibration and alerts. It can also be used to activate stealth mode, which disables now-typing indicator that appears when sending messages. 

Auki is available at Cydia’s BigBoss repository for $3.99. It’s perfect for use if you’ve been looking for something light for composing and replying. Share your thoughts if you try it out.

How To Play Nintendo Games On Your iPhone/iPad Using NDS4iOS Emulator [No JB Required]

Published on April 13, 2014 by in Apple, Apple Bytes
Although the App Store is full of great and popular apps that no one can ever hate to play it, but a lot of people still like the old days when they were playing awesome Nintendo games on their Atari or other devices… Nintendo has no plans to bring its games to the App Store, but you can still play them using NDS4iOS emulator and you don’t even have to jailbreak your device.

NDS4iOS is similar to GB4iOS 2.0, the jailbreak-free Game Boy Advanced emulator that was released couple of months back.

The emulator takes advantage of Apple’s Enterprise Distribution program, which allows the installation of non-App Store apps without the need to jailbreak a device. It includes support for Dropbox sync just like GB4iOS.

It is a very simple emulator and anyone can use it on a non-jailbroken device… All what you have to do is following these simple steps: 
  • Start the download of NDS4iOS from this link. Please note that you need to click on the “Install nds4ios (Stable) via OTA” (Not the “Open nds4ios (Stable) in Cydia”). Tap on Install when you’re prompted if you get the following message: github would like to install “nsds4ios”
  • Then open the Settings app, tap General.
  • Tap Date & Time
  • Tap on the On/Off toggle next to Set Automatically to turn it off.
  • Change the date to February 8th, 2014

After it is successfully installed, you can enable the Set Automatically toggle again to revert back to the current date and time. You can access the Dropbox sync option, by tapping on the menu icon in the top left corner, followed by Settings. When you tap on the On/Off toggle next to the Enable Dropbox Sync option, it will launch Dropbox app and prompt you to tap Allow to give the NDS4iOS app access to data in your Dropbox account so you can access your ROMs.

Let us know what do you think about this awesome emulator and how do you find Nintendo games.

Galaxy S5 vs iPhone 5s [Speed Test]

Published on April 13, 2014 by in Apple, Apple Bytes
A couple of days ago we posted a drop test video between iPhone 5s/Galaxy S5 and HTC M8.. Today we are going to show you a new speed test video between two popular smartphones and they and they are: Samsung Galaxy S5 and iPhone 5s.

The test, created by the guys at PhoneBuff, blitzes through a series of apps including PayPal, Photoshop and the respective browsers in order to determine which is fastest. Running on completely different platforms, Apple’s iOS has been renowned for its smooth, zippy functionality from the get-go, but whilst it did take Android a while to get its mobile operating system up and running, it’s now as snappy and seamless as its main rival.

So, how do they compare, off the back of fresh reboots, when running comparable apps side by side? Well, in actual fact, there’s not a great deal to call between them. Given that the Galaxy S5 is newer, you might expect it to run apps quicker than on the iPhone 5s, especially when one considers that the Apple device only packs a dual-core processor. But given how Apple designs its software and hardware in-house, it definitely has a secret weapon against the raw power of a device like the S5, and as you’ll see in the video, both respective devices take it in turns to outdo each other in the speed stakes.

Let the war begin: 

Interesting right ? What do you think ?

Another iPhone 6 Cases Surface In Two Different Sizes

Published on April 13, 2014 by in Apple, Apple Bytes
The most read topics on the internet is probably about Apple’s next generation the iPhone 6. Almost everyday we keep hearing rumors/concepts and reports about it and how it will look like, the cost, the release date and more…. Today a new photos were posted by  MobileFun. The pictures shows iPhone 6 cases and they are different in size ( Maybe we can see two iPhones different in size this year!). 

From MobileFun:

We recently received some interesting images that purport to be cases for both of the upcoming iPhone 6 models. The one on the right is for an iPhone with a 4.7-inch display, expected to be announced in June. The left case is for an iPhone with an even larger 5.7-inch display. This larger, phablet-sized model would be released in September.

And Nowhereelse.fr spotted some interesting details:

Note that there’s no opening for the top-mounted sleep/wake button that has been on all previous iPhone models (2). Coincidentally, there’s a new button cutout on the left-hand side (1)—Ming-Chi Kuo believes Apple is moving the button to the side this year to better facilitate one-handed use of the larger devices.

At any rate we still have a long time to see the truth and I would like to see an iPhone with a larger screen display.. What about you ?
