Facebook Android app updated, but not good enough

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 23, 2012
Facebook has updated its Android app with event creation and support for photos and emoji in messages. But the incremental update is nothing compared to the latest iOS release, which brings in drastic improvements, leaving Android users short-changed. Sources say that even Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is disappointed with how the development of the Android app is going.

Google services on Android vs. third-party services on iOS

by: Simon HillAugust 21, 2012
As Apple strips Google services out of iOS and adopts more third-party options, Google continues to integrate its own services more on Android. Does it make sense for us, or is petty squabbling getting in the way of the best user experience?

Knowledge Graph rolls out to all English-speaking countries and Google Voice Search arrives on iOS

by: LucianAugust 8, 2012

Over the past few years, we’ve seen many arguments that Google needs to become more “social” if it doesn’t want to be somehow made irrelevant by Facebook. But while the social signal can be an interesting and perhaps sometimes useful tip for Google’s search algorithm, I think it should never represent more than a small single digit percentage it its algorithm.

People don’t always want to see what their friends thought the best answer is, because in most cases those “friends” may not even be that close to you and are just some people you added to your online social circle. Therefore, their [...]

IDC: Android jumps to 68.1% global market share, iOS slips to 16.9%

by: LucianAugust 8, 2012

According to IDC, Android and iOS now represent 85% of the 152 million smartphones sold in Q2 2012, globally. But while the iPhone kept growing in raw numbers, it couldn’t keep up with Android, and its market share slipped from 18.8% to 16.9%.  The iPhone has always been around 20% market share or lower globally, and with the upcoming iPhone coming out soon, it’s not that surprising that its sales would fall.

On the other hand, Android has simply kept on growing, and its global market share is inching closer towards passing the 70% mark, now being at 68.1%. It doesn’t seem like there’s anything stopping Android from [...]

Gameloft working on first mobile game based on Unreal engine

by: Chris SmithAugust 3, 2012

Gameloft is one of the important players in the mobile gaming world, having numerous apps available for iOS and Android devices. The latest game coming out of Gameloft’s studios is The Dark Knight Rises, the companion app of the third movie in Christopher Nolan’s modern Batman saga.

But the company will not stop there, as it looks like it’s working on a game based on the Unreal engine. The actual title of this new product is not yet public, and we have no idea when it will arrive, as Gameloft has not made any public announcements at this time.

Instead, the company teased its first mobile game based on the Unreal engine on its Facebook [...]

Samsung opening statement says Apple did not copy iPhone, iPad, but competed against them

by: Chris SmithJuly 31, 2012

Earlier today, the U.S. Apple vs Samsung trial was officially kicked off by Apple’s opening statement, in which the counsel of the iPhone maker started showing the nine jurors – one member of the jury was dismissed just before Apple’s opening statement – how Samsung copied the look and feel of its iPhone and iPad mobile products.

After one hour and a half, it was time for Samsung’s legal team to step up to the plate with its opening statement. From the get-go, Samsung clearly specified that it didn’t copy the iPhone or the iPad. Instead, the company is simply competing against Apple in a market where touchscreen-based devices are currently [...]

Fake Infinity Blade 2 app briefly live on Google Play – do we need some (tiny) walls for our garden?

by: Bogdan PetrovanJuly 31, 2012

Another blemish on the reputation of the Google Play Store – a fake Infinity Blade 2 app went live on the Play store on July 28, and accrued more than 1000 downloads before being taken down.

The fake application, a 2.2 MB APK, prompted users to earn 50 points on Tapjoy (paid ad clicks) in order to unlock the full game download. Some users reported that the download never became available, while others said that the 1.03GB file was just “junk”.

The app was published by “2011 Chair Entertainment Group LLC” (the developer of the real iOS game is Chair Entertainment Group, LLC) and used the official branding and copy of the iOS game. It is unclear what the purpose [...]

iPhone 5 event set for September 12, release date set for following weeks

by: Chris SmithJuly 31, 2012

The iPhone 5, which is what tech blogs and media still call the sixth-generation iOS smartphone, is expected to be unveiled at some point this fall, but the device may hit stores a lot sooner than mid-October, which is when the new iPhone was believed to arrive.

According to Reuters, Apple is going to hold a special September 12 event during which the company will introduce the new iPhone model. However, that September 12 date may “shift, the source said on condition of anonymity.”

In case Apple does indeed announce new products on September 12, then we’d expect them to see them in stores up to 10 days later so the new iPhone [...]
