After all of the WWDC fun from yesterday I introduced uTime 3 for iOS. I am very happy to announce that right now uTime 3 is officially available to download on the iOS App Store.
To get an in depth view of some of the changes look at the post below or follow this link to learn more about uTime 3.
The official uTime 3 changelog is massive and here it is:
3.0 The Massive Update:
- Added a new screen: Modifications. Now modifications are done in it’s own view that will slide in. It will display the name and the current target time of your timer and allow you to change it.
- The timer screen has been redesigned. It now has larger text and will allow you to see the maximum amount of time remaining on the target timer
- Home screen: The entire home screen has been redone. There is now the list of all your timers on the side bar along with the maximum amount of time remaining.
- Modification Screen: Instead of presenting an entire screen a popup view will appear and you can modify the timer and save just by dismissing the controller (by tapping anywhere on screen). The size of the popup does not cover the current timer information so you know what you are modifying.
- Web Support Is Now In It’s Own View Instead Of A Popup In The Info View
- Notifications: Instead of a popup alert displaying when the timer fire date is finished a generic iOS banner will appear.
- Added the ability to share the timer with various apps using share sheet. This will share the name of the timer and the maximum amount of time there is left.
- Changed the background images
- Support now opens in a WebKit view meaning there is a progress bar to show you the accurate loading % of the webpage.
- Swift: The entire app was rewritten in swift which is why it took so long.
- iOS 11: Due to the nature of the app and the newer API’s at the moment uTime 3 is iOS 11+ only.
Even though uTime 3 is 11+ only iOS 10 and below users may still download uTime 2 from the App Store.
uTime 3 is massive for iOS and I hope all of you enjoy it. As always updates will be coming throughout and due to how I set up uTime 3 they will be coming much quicker!

Happy WWDC 2016 all! Even though I was not liveblogging the event I was paying close attention to it! To celebrate all of todays news a new version of uSurf is being pushed right now! Here’s what’s new in Version 5.1:
uSurf 5.1 Changes:
- Added open in Safari to iPhone Share Sheet.
- Replaced Home with Single Square for Settings View.
- URL Field Will Clear Text When You Tap It!
- Split Tabs into iPhone and iPad Sections.
- Made it so share sheet follows theming rules.
- Fixed issue when switching to light theme the tables had the previous themes color…
- Fixed Issue Where Adding A Tab in Split Screen didn’t add it to iCloud…
- Fixed issue where adding a bookmark in split screen did nothing…
There are going to be a lot of additions coming this summer and with iOS 10 more towards September! I’m going to go and start diving into the new SDK’s and I will see everyone in the next update! (If the update is not showing right away it is probably because Apple’s servers are jammed right now… Should show up sometime soon!)

iTunes 11 is great. That’s really the only thing that has to really be said but I will give sort of a mini review right now for all.
iTunes 11 launches so fast and is so smooth it feels like I am using something else. It seems they have re-written the app from the ground up
The design is amazing. I love it. Actually I think it is really the first major change to the design of iTunes ever. Yes there has been features added but never a real redesign. This is a complete redesign and it’s great.
The mini player was really worthless in the other iTunes. Now it’s great. You can search for songs see the next song’s in the playlist, repeat basically everything.
That’s it for the Mini Review of iTunes 11. I hope you enjoy it!
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.
When I saw minecraft was coming to iOS yesterday I was pure excited at all the possibilities. Some disappointing but more great than everything. The best thing? You don’t need a minecraft account… For the full review hit the break!

Today is the 10th birthday of the product that has changed the whole way we look at music and how we looked at personal devices for ever. Even today the iPod is still amazing device and we have gone through so many versions. From the original click wheel iPod to the newest iPod touch you cannot denny it has been one of the most revolutionary device yet… And no one has been able to beat it in any category. Happy Birthday iPod. You have changed everything.
I think it is safe to say there will be no more rumors between now and tomorrow so I am going to do a little Apple “Lets talk iPhone” Rumor round up what we will see at the event all the way to the release date all these rumors from the past month combined into 1 awesome post.
This seems like a near dream to me now. The fact of the matter yes it could come and I wish it will and I am sure a ton of you fanboys are hoping that it does too. The fact of the matter is yes I do think it will come but there is no proof from Apple… Yet anyways. We have seen leaked cases and cases even showing up in inventories along with the device itself! Launch Date is rumored to be October 14th!
This is the iPhone that is expected to be announced tomorrow. It is supposed to just be a hardware bump to the iPhone 4 with a CDMA iPhone 4 antenna and possibly a metal back? Never know. But this iPhone is the more likely to show up tomorrow. There is evidence of this in Apple’s inventory system and even in iTunes! Launch date is rumored to be October 14th!
Yes for everyone not picking up the newest iPhone you will be happy to hear that the betas have stopped for iOS 5 we haven’t seen a new one for 4 weeks now I think. The GM will be launched to developers tomorrow I am sure and everyone should get it either by Friday or next Tuesday.
This is in iOS 5 no doubt. We have proof of it! No one except the insides at Apple and carriers have been able to use it though tomorrow is the day we might see the voice control come to the world! The co-founder of Siri even said Assistant will change the way we interact. Need any more proof? The question is will Apple surprise us and make this an iPhone 4s/5 only feature.
Yes iCloud. A great feature of iOS will be launching to the world sometime this week whenever iOS 5 does. iCloud is amazing and I can’t wait for all of you to try it.
iPods anyone? we can dream right?
This is very very far stretched which is why I made it the last one on our list. There has been no rumors for the iPod touch 5 other than it will have a white front… No rumors of design changes or an announcement date. Some would like to think it is tomorrow but it is a “Lets Talk iPhone” event. As Apple usually announces iPods around this time the order of thing have been messed with a lot this year so I don’t think we will see any iPods tomorrow but hey we can dream and hope for them like the iPhone 5 right?
Yes this is going to kill me. The event is during school for me and won’t have a live stream up on Apple’s site but below here is a list of websites that are covering the event that you should check out. This is going to be my first iPhone announcement I wont be able to watch the live feeds for so I am not happy about this and I am not happy saying you should go to another site to see whats new… Don’t worry everything will be covered in my post roundup of the day and yes it will be a giant one! Remember my iOS 5 review is featured and will be on top of the site for some time so make sure to scroll down to see the newest post! Thanks!

For as long as the iPod touch has been around there has always been rumors of Apple adding 3G support somewhat like they do with the current iPad 2 3G. This has never happened but now the rumor of it happening is up again and this time I think it could happen. You see people have been saying the iPod is dead. This may be somewhat true but remember the iPod touch has been for people who don’t want to pay per month. The iPod touch has been a great way to do this and now it could be you don’t need to pay by month if you don’t want to you can pay as you go and use iMessages for texts and Skype for calls instead of a pre-paid iPhone where you need texts and calls and all that stuff you don’t by an iPod for. You buy an iPod touch for Games, Downloading music, Talking with friends, and for what I see most people use it for. THE WEB. Not texting not calling just using the web with their apps or safari. That’s why the 3G iPod touch is a good idea. Here is a statement posted on macrumors
After talking with multiple people over the past few weeks, we had a lengthy chat with one person who gave us great news about the next iPod Touch. We’ve used this person in the past, but they did qualify their remarks, saying that the iPod Touch changes should make it, but there’s no guarantee the changes will be ready for fall. The 3G iPod Touch idea intrigued us so much back in July, and we’ve been trying to find one of our contacts who can give some credence to the idea. A few have declined to comment, while others honestly have no idea, but the source for this report says that Apple is indeed working on a 3G iPod Touch. Apple is intent on announcing the device during their September event which they usually save for their iPod line, but will include the iPhone as well this year.
All and all I hope they have the options of 3G+wifi or Wifi only. We will see this month hopefully with the arrival of the iPhone 5 as well.
The image you see above is of what is supposedly a white iPod touch 5 part. The headset jack. The iPod touch 5 is rumored to have a white faceplate much like the white iPad 2 and the white iPhone 4. I think I would like to see a white iPod touch come this year. We will just have to wait and find out.
