With iOS 9 being so big I had to release something to complement it. This is of course uSurf 3.0 which is now available for all devices running iOS 8 and some goodies for those running iOS 9.Here’s what’s new
-Support for iOS 9
-uSurf Allows For Split Screen Multitasking on iPad Air and iPad Air 2! This will allow you to surf the web while doing other activities (single web view).
-Added gestures for navigation. Use 2 fingers and swipe to the right to go back in your browsing history.
-Swipe towards the left with 2 fingers to go forward in your browsing history.
-Tapping the blur effect in the share sheet on Split Screen will close the share sheet.
-Added History so you can see where you are browsing from.
There are some things to note here with the changes. For the swipe to go back there is no animation for this it just happens. It also requires 2 fingers for the gesture to be recognized. Also some pages have elements that make iOS ignore this function. Along with this if you go to a different view then it go back and want to get back there it won’t work. Also browsing the web in split screen on iPad will not add to the history view (yes this is being worked on).
That’s it for this update! I am working hard on another to try and fix some of the problems I mentioned above that is in my control along with some other added goodies. Enjoy iOS 9 and uSurf 3.0 (which is now free!)!

Apple has killed of the old iPod Touch 4th generation in favor of a new $229 iSightless camera. The new iPod has the same processor as the current 5th generation along with the same screen size but is missing the Loop accessory and rear camera. The iPod only comes in the silver metal which seems to be the same as the current metal on the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini (White Versions). The new iPod comes with 16GB of memory and if you want the camera and the loop you will have to spend $300.
Could the reason Apple discontinued the iPod 4th generation because the device would not be able to handle iOS7? If that is the case then the iPhone 4 would have to be discontinued for the same reason the processor wouldn’t be strong enough meaning Apple would probably introduce a cheaper iPhone at WWDC along with iOS 7… Who knows.
You will be able to pick up this new iPod Touch in store starting tomorrow (May 31st) and the online store is currently accepting orders.
iOS (previously known as iPhone OS) was what made the iPhone the best of the best back when it was announced in 2007. Sadly though it has gone untouched in the sense you could take an original iPhone out of the box and the whole thing would look almost exactly similar. There would be changes to Apps and to functionality (including the app store) but it would look almost exactly the same with the grid of icons.
That however may be coming to an end. Earlier this year Scott Forestall in charge of iOS development was fired and the prestige Jony Ive took over. There is a sense that Jony is going to get rid of some of the texture we see in apps such as the calendar and contacts and mold them to a more aluminum based design. What else will be done in the operating system is yet to discovered but I have hopes for the next iOS version. iOS 7 is expected to be revealed sometime in the summer with the next iPhone following it.
My let’s talk about the next iOS will be coming soon as I have a lot to talk about but will be up soon.
Apple has just released iOS 6.1 to the public. This can be installed OTA or through iTunes.
First off Happy New Year! Bad News I guess comes at a bad time it seems. Users are reporting a do not disturb bug with iOS devices, the bug seems to be with the scheduling portion of the feature. What happens is you schedule the device to go on do not disturb and it either won’t go on do not disturb or will stay on do not disturb until the user manually turns it on or off. This bug has been addressed by Apple saying the bug will auto-fix itself on January 7th next week. This bug ironicly comes at the time after the new Apple TV ad showing the feature off. Whoops.
The new iPod touch was announced alongside the new iPhone 5 almost a month ago. However we never got a release date for the device is still unknown. Apple gave the vague date of October. However we know a little more of when we can get our hands on Apples newest and best iPod Touch. The device could be launching in 3 weeks according to people who have pre ordered the device with shipping times being “3 weeks”.
The new iPod touch comes in many colors has a new wristband. The new iPod Touch also comes with a new A5 processor and has Siri built into it. The design is new also and the camera has been greatly improved.
Im a little late on this yes but I just got to my laptop. Beta 3 is available for all devs so go get it if you haven’t. Available over the air or from the developer portal.

Today Apple launched a beta site for iCloud.com where developers can test the new web features. The new features include Calendar improvements, the addition of notes and reminders, and improvements to the Find my iPhone application. To be able to get in you must have an iOS iCloud account running on iOS 6 beta or I believe an iCloud account running on OS X Mountain Lion. If you have an iCloud account with those then head to beta.icloud.com and sign in!
