Nearly a month after iOS 7.1’s first beta release to developers, Apple has seeded the second beta of 7.1 on the developer center. Registered developers can now head over to Apple’s dev center and grab the latest beta, which is titled with the build number 11D511D.
Head inside for the full list of changes we’ve found on beta 2 of iOS 7.1:
Walmart , a company known for rocking-the-boat, has given us an irresistible offer on the iPhone 5c ($27) and iPhone 5s ($127) with a two-year contract from AT&T or Verizon this coming Friday. As others have mentioned, Black Friday is over – the best deals on mobiles has come and gone. Though, I wouldn’t be surprised if Wal-Mart just starts regularly offering the iPhone at a price point similar to this weekend’s deal.
Instagram 5.0 feature, ‘Instagram Direct’, was announced and released today at their media event, ‘Share a Moment’, in New York. The idea is simple, you can now directly send images and video to select users, rather than only being able to share to everyone at once.
Fleksy is an awesome keyboard that's about to land in select applications; by 'select' I mean developers have the option of adding it to their Apps for free, with the permission of Fleksy's developers.
Now I adore the stock iOS keyboard for it's consistency amongst applications, and its consistently predictable auto-correct features, but show me a modern human being who isn't interested in a gesture-friendly alternative keyboard for their iPhone or iPad.
Over the last year Pegatron has failed to explain the deaths of five younger employees, one that was found out to be only 15 years old. The 15 year old was using a fake ID that said he was 20. China Labor Watch was the first to report on this, check out the Sydney Morning Herald’s comment on the next page.
Angry Birds has proven to be one of the most popular games ever created. It’s accessible from a variety of sources, and has come out with countless versions. For the first time since its original debut, it has done something new. Angry Birds GO! is their newest title, leaving the flick style gameplay of the old versions behind. Their new game is reminiscent of Mario Kart 64 and I couldn’t be more excited.
Spotify announced this morning that it would allow its free streaming option to all iOS and Android tablets. Previously Spotify only allowed this feature on its desktop application, allowing users to select songs and create playlists free of charge in exchange for involuntarily listening to advertisements. The biggest question I have now, is how do I trick the Spotify application into thinking my phone is a tablet.
Google has added some much needed application support to the Chromecast, most notably Plex for iOS support. Other services added were Vevo, Songza, Red Bull TV, Post TV, Viki, RealPlayer Cloud, and apparently more.
The Chromecast came out recently and has proved to be very popular, at $35 dollars or less it’s the most affordable and elegantly delivered streaming media box experience I know of. While it’s not the most friendly device for people looking for effortless display mirroring, it’s perfect for catching up on YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu Plus.
