Mark Zuckerberg, or better known as Mr. Facebook, has confirmed that Facebook have in fact aquired the popular iOS and Android App ‘Instagram’ on a message through his Facebook page.

How to delete Gmail messages on iOS Devices rather than Archiving them

Our friends over at OzTechNews found this interesting video on CNET TV, which I’m sure will come in handy for those of you who have noticed this. Recently, iOS has decided that you can’t delete messages anymore from your Gmail (or hotmail) message, but instead you have the default option to ‘archive’ them, which has really frustrated me on my iPad. Even though I’ve go... »

Textbook Publishers go all in with the iPad

Suddenly, going to school seems a heck of a lot more appealing after Apple’s big announcement yesterday; Apple is going to be a whole lot more Book Friendly. The announcement brought about a new way of teaching (or reading) with the help of apps such as iBooks 2, iBooks Author and iTunes U.

Microsoft release Xbox App for iPad and iPhone

Well it looks like Microsoft has been busy for not only the Windows Phone Platform, but they’ve gone ahead and created an app for iOS devices and the interesting this is that the App is very good. The Apps (called My Xbox Live) themselves are both free for the iPad and iPhone (and iPod Touch too, but that goes under the iPhone category). We tried it out on the iPad and as you can see from th... »

iTunes Match is a go – sync up your entire music collection for $24.99/year

iTunes match was first announced back in June and we made a brief mention about it, along with the iCloud announcement which you can see here.

Official iPad and iPhone Gmail App get’s real official, has too many officials

Official iPad and iPhone Gmail App get’s real official, has too many officials

Update: It seems the app has been pulled from the App store by Google over a notification bug. Fantastic. Well it’s about time Google! Seriously, the fact it took Google over two years to finally release the official iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch app annoys us, because while the default mail client is charming on iOS devices, it lacked that distinct Gmail Flavour. Now, we’re obviously ki... »
