iOS 4.3 Brings Ability to Cancel an In-Progress App Downloads

No comments:



iOS 4.3 is bringing the ability to cancel an in-progress app download, according to a discovery made by AppAdvice.

The feature is quite simple to use. All you have to do is enter the icon arrangement mode (“Wiggle mode”) as you normally do to delete an app. This time however, you’ll notice the ‘x’ appear over the currently downloading app as well. Just hit it, confirm and iOS will proceed to interrupt the download and delete the app.

Apple is expected to release a third beta of iOS 4.3 today and may be planning to release the final version before the Verizon iPhone ships on February 10th.

Lawsuit Filed Against AT&T For Cheating Customers on Data download/upload

1 comment:



A new lawsuit against AT&T alleges that the company is systematically overcharging users on data by inflating the amount they download and adding 'phantom traffic'.

According to ComputerWorld the complaint was filed by Patrick Hendricks in California federal court and claims that a "significant portion" of AT&T's $1.1 billion in wireless revenue last quarter came from bogus charges and overbilling.

Citing evidence obtained by a consulting firm hired by Henricks' attorneys, the lawsuit contends that AT&T regularly overstates incoming data by 7% to 14%, and in some cases by as much as 300%.

"AT&T's billing system for iPhone and iPad data transactions is like a rigged gas pump that charges for a full gallon when it pumps only nine-tenths of a gallon into your car's tank," the complaint states.

Hendricks is seeking class-action status for his lawsuit. AT&T says they will "vigorously" defend themselves.

Apple Rejects Sony Reader Application for the iPhone and all iOS devices.

No comments:



Apple has reportedly rejected the Sony Reader application for the iPhone because it allows people to buy and read e-books bought from the Sony Reader Store, according to the NYT.

Apple told Sony that from now on, all in-app purchases would have to go through Apple, said Steve Haber, president of Sony’s digital reading division.

"It's the opposite of what we wanted to bring to the market," Mr. Haber said. "We always wanted to bring the content to as many devices as possible, not one device to one store."

This rejection could also signal problems for Amazon who provides a similar application for its Kindle.

Apple to Release Third Beta of iOS 4.3 Today?

No comments:



Apple may be set to release a third beta of iOS 4.3 to developers today, according to a BGR source.

One of our Apple sources has just let us know that the company’s iOS 4.3 rampage isn’t slowing down. We have been told there will be yet another beta build posted for developers, wearing the build number 8F5166b, at some point today. This would be the third build of iOS 4.3 in just three weeks… perhaps signaling how quick the company is moving to get point-upgrade finalized.

Apple Revises Liquid Damage Policy for iPods

No comments:



Apple has revised its policy on performing repairs for iPods and possibly iPhones that have activated Liquid Contact Indicators.

A document obtained by iGeneration indicates that Apple may still uphold your warranty even if the LCI is activated.

If a customer disputes whether an iPod with an activated LCI has been damaged by liquid contact and there are no external signs of damage from corrosion, then the iPod may still be eligible for warranty service

Back in November another internal document was leaked which also instructed representatives to inspected iPods for additional signs of liquid damage.

In April, a class action lawsuit was filed against Apple alleging that the company knowingly denies warranty service based on unreliable LCIs.

TrueHDR Releases Version 2.2 for iOS

No comments:



Pictional has announced the release of TrueHDR 2.2, an update to TrueHDR, a high dynamic range (HDR) photography app that is one of a highly select group of fifty apps recently named by Apple to the "App Store Essentials Hall of Fame". TrueHDR enables users to take HDR photos on iPhone 4, 3GS, and iPod touch 4G, with two distinct styles - Natural and Enhanced. TrueHDR's latest release includes the following new features: geo-tagging, improved image alignment, and improved light metering for automatically setting exposures. To accompany the new release, TrueHDR has been placed on limited time sale for 0.99$, 50% off of its regular price.

TrueHDR is designed to address the issue that cameras can only capture a limited range of brightness in a single photo. In other words, when people take photos of a scene that has a large range from bright to dark, they often have to choose between the bright areas and the dark areas. TrueHDR enables users to take two pictures at different exposures, and then takes the best features of each and merges them into one picture that has vivid colors and details in both the shadows and sunny areas.

With TrueHDR 2.2, the app now does geo-tagging, saving photos with the automatically detected location information (if a user permits it to do so), so the user can keep track of where pictures are taken.

At the core of an HDR app, users want the best-looking results, and with TrueHDR 2.2, Pictional has made two key enhancements that lead to more beautiful pictures. The first is improved image alignment, which yields fewer ghosted edges and even crisper, higher quality result images than with previous versions. The second important innovation is improved light metering for the "Auto Capture" mode; this improvement involves using an enhanced method for metering the scene brightness and automatically setting exposures, thereby enabling users to capture a better range of details and produce a better balance between shadow and sun in their HDR photos.

Feature highlights:
* Geo-tagging, improved image alignment, and improved light metering for Auto Capture mode
* Choice of Natural or Enhanced modes, with Natural for the most realistic look and Enhanced for slightly more vivid colors and contrast - pick the look you like
* All new Natural mode gives you beautifully natural true-to-life colors, faster processing, and reduced image noise
* Easy capture with Rapid AutoCapture mode
* Greater control over exposure points with SemiAuto capture mode and manual mode
* Automatically saves original images for use with desktop HDR programs if desired
* Works on iPhone 3GS where the native camera does not offer an HDR option
* Full support for front facing camera in all three modes (Auto, SemiAuto, and Manual), making composing and taking self portraits easier and more fun than ever
* Convenient sharing features (Facebook, Twitter, email)

Pricing and Availability:
TrueHDR 2.2 is $0.99 USD, 50% off of its regular price for a limited period of time. It is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photography category. Promo codes for review purposes are available upon request.
