iBye Gets a New UI, App Store Application Backups Coming Soon

No comments:



iBye, an application to backup and store your iDevice data on a FTP server, has been updated with a new UI.

iBye will backup your data and store that data on a FTP server of your choosing. iBye will restore this data from the backup on that FTP server as well.

If you do not want to use a FTP server, then iBye will do a local backup and local restore on the iDevice itself. iBye also has the functionality to remove all the data from the desired application of your choosing.

What's New In This Version:
● New UI and Icon
● Added Local Backup
● Added Local Backup Enabler
● Added Local Backup Remover
● Fixed No FTP URL Crash
● Added dates to all fields

We've also learned that the next iBye update will feature App Store application data backup and restore as well as Cydia download backup and restore.

You can purchase iBye from the Cydia Store for $1.99.

Skyfire App Pulled From App Store After It 'Sold Out' UPDATE*

No comments:






Skyfire has pulled its recently released web browser from the App Store due to 'incredible demand'

-----
Skyfire for iPhone has been received with unbelievable enthusiasm. Despite our best attempts and predictions, the demand far exceeds our initial projections.

The user experience was performing well for the first few hours, but as the surge continued, the peak load on our servers and bandwidth caused the video experience to degrade.

Thus we are effectively 'sold out' and will temporarily not accept new purchases from the App Store. We are working really hard to increase capacity and will be accepting new purchases from the App Store as soon as we can support it.

We are very grateful for the demand. Within 5 hours, Skyfire for iPhone became the top grossing app, the third highest paid app overall and the top application in the Utilities category. Wow!

Please bear with us as we bring our capacity in line with the incredible demand – stay tuned.













*thanks iclarified*

We can't wait, and we would like to see a iPad version as well.

The app is available for purchase in the AppStore again...

11-inch Upgraded MacBook Air Offers 15% Performance Increase

No comments:



AnandTech has tested the upgraded configuration of the 11-inch MacBook Air and found that it offers a 15% increase in performance.

Apple's 11.6 inch MacBook Air has a base configuration of 1.4GHz and 2GB of RAM. These specifications can be bumped to 1.6GHz and 4GB of RAM for an additional $200.

On average the upgraded system was 15% faster than the base 11-inch MacBook Air. The base 13-inch MBA averaged around 19% faster across the board, however in applications/usage models with large memory footprints the faster CPU had effectively no benefit.

The site was also able to measure a reduction of around 6% in battery life.
