A couple weeks ago, Google released a dedicated Gmail application for iOS. After discovering the app had a bug which broke notifications and displayed an error message, Google removed it from the App Store. Now, the bug has been fixed and the app has returned to the App Store. With the Gmail app, you can be alerted of new messages with push notifications and sounds, search your entire inbox, organize your mail, and much more. The app supports any iOS 4+ device.

Nearly four out of 10 iPhone users (38 percent) have gone out and updated their smartphones to iOS 5, representing the highest adoption rate of any iDevice, according to data provided by Chitka Insights. iPad owners proved the next most anxious to upgrade, with almost a third -- 30 percent -- now rocking Apple's latest and greatest mobile operating system. Coming in a distant third is the iPod crowd, with only 12 percent of users choosing to install iOS 5 so far. What gives? "Evidently those using the iPod aren’t interested in upgrading to the latest software, most likely because their iPod’s... Read more...
Yesterday's Apple keynote was primarily about the iPhone. No surprise there, given that the event was called "Let's Talk iPhone." But Apple still took the opportunity to introduce new features and new prices to the iPod touch and iPod nano lines. Now, the iPod touch will be available in both black and white starting at just $199, and they'll both support the company's new iOS 5 and iCloud services. The new iPod nano is available today starting at just $129 and features a redesigned user interface, 16 new digital clock faces and improved built-in fitness features; both models are available in silver,...

To some users, one of the downsides of the iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone is non-expandable memory. Of course, many users buy the higher-capacity devices and assume they'll have adequate storage. But what happens if you run out of space on your iOS device and don't want to delete any files? At first, it may appear that you are out of luck—there isn't the option to pop in a memory card and expand your storage capacity. However, there is another option. Although the iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone may not have memory expansion card slots, you can expand the storage capacity of your favorite iOS... Read more...
To some users, one of the downsides of the iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone is non-expandable memory. Of course, many users buy the higher-capacity devices and assume they'll have adequate storage. But what happens if you run out of space on your iPad, iPod touch, or iPhone and you don't want to delete any files? At first, it may appear that you are out of luck—there isn't the option to pop in a memory card and expand your storage capacity like there is on other devices. However, there is another option.

Whether you think of Apple as makers of the trendiest and best performing mobile products on the planet or view Steve Jobs' 'Evil Empire' with the same contempt that Boston Red Sox fans have for the New York Yankees, Apple's doing well either way. Actually, that's a bit of an understatement. Despite a growing army of Android users, Apple today announced to the world that more than 200 million iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users worldwide have downloaded over 15 billion apps from the App Store. "In just three years, the revolutionary App Store has grown to become the most exciting and successful... Read more...
State Farm has just released an iOS application called Driver Feedback. The app uses your iDevice's accelerometer and GPS to "grade" your driving. It monitors the three driving behaviors that are the riskiest, and thus need to be tracked are hard acceleration, hard braking, and hard cornering. Since we know that iPhone is very good at tracking users, it's an obvious choice, but it would be nice to see an Android version, as well. As you might expect, it's free in the App Store. Just to be clear, State Farm said it does not collect the trip information. Additionally, the data recorded by the app... Read more...
Good news if you've been annoyed with your mobile Apple device for one reason or another related to the software. Apple this week released its iOS 4.3.2 software update for the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch (third and fourth generation), and iPad 1 and 2. There are a number of fixes in the update, including one that addresses a FaceTime bug causing freezing problems or displaying random photos from the camera roll. Also fixed in the latest update is the Verizon 3G connectivity issue that a number of iPad 2 users have been complaining about. Prior to the update, CDMA versions of the iPad 2 would... Read more...
You may have forgotten about Google TV. We can't really blame you, nor can we say that Google TV has really been able to gain traction in the market. Google has shown a willingness to push things out into the market without actually knowing how it'll turn out; Android has taken off and become a huge success, while things like Buzz, Wave and Google TV have faltered. That said, GTV is still around in some fashion, and some folks are definitely still using it. And if you're one of those people, this new development is for you. Early on, Google released an Android application that enabled one's phone... Read more...

NavFree has launched an iOS navigation app, which isn't in and of itself unusual. However, the app is free, and includes 1.6GB of offline data, which is unusual, particularly for gratis. NavFree USA (Europe is coming; U.K. and Ireland are already in the App Store) will also provide crowdsourced monthly map updates, also completely free of charge. An Android version is coming as well. Social networking features allow users to share their position via SMS, Email, Twitter and Facebook, but that sounds a lot like Google Latitude, anyway. There will be add-ons for in-app purchase such as speed cameras,... Read more...
What's next for 3D? It has taken over the cinema, the gaming world, the television world...what could possibly be next in 3D's crosshairs? What about mobile? In years past, there has been a few solutions for bringing a 3D effect to gaming handhelds, and recently, Nintendo has announced plans for a factory-built 3D handheld. But there are two devices in particular with a huge following, and if someone were to put 3D on those, they'd be in for a profitable treat. Of course, we're talking about the 125 million iPhone and iPod touch units in circulation, and now toy maker Hasbro is promising to bring... Read more...
