The iPhone X has just dropped and it’s looking pretty sleek with its borderless display and that minimal camera notch up top. But, to get one you’d have to shell out a whole lot of money — US$ 999 to be precise.
Before you go off trying to sell your belongings to fund your iPhone lust, know that there are ways to get that iPhone look without spending.
Being cheap doesn’t mean getting the worst; you just have to be practical to get the best deals in town. You don’t even have to look too far, because your smartphone is just waiting for you to download these apps to get discounts and freebies.
360 cameras have been all the rage these days, but none of the new camera releases have really excited me — until now. Insta360’s newest device promises a new camera experience, and it may very well be a game-changer in the video department.
Uber users in the Philippines woke up today to an alternate reality in which their favorite ride-sharing service no longer existed. While the service is recovering as the story develops, those who rely on Uber for their daily commute are forced to look into other alternatives to get from one point to another.
A good mobile game could save you from getting bored out of your wits. Mobile games land their charm in the portability your consoles and PCs don’t have and the availability of games your handhelds don’t own. Granted that some of these games end up incentivising in-app purchasing or dump a crap-ton of ads, they are still fun to play.
Not that I’m suggesting that downloading apps would instantly transform your lifestyle, but they can definitely put you on the right track. Living a healthier lifestyle entails commitment and certain life changes (for most of us unhealthy mortals), but all it takes is a decision to try — and baby steps to get there.
There are plenty of ways to take notes. You could do it the traditional way with a notebook and pen, or something out of the ordinary like jotting down on a napkin during lunch. Or, better yet, use your smartphone!
Have you been seeing this image on your Facebook feed a lot lately? Wondering what’s the big deal that has your friends actually sharing this stuff online for all their social circles to see? GadgetMatch takes a quick look at Mobile Legends.
Google unveiled a number of cool new things at its annual developers conference Google I/O. Among the many things they announced (which included Android O features, Google Home and Google Assistant updates, and even YouTube upgrades), what interested me most were the new features on Google Photos.
Tinkering with photos can be tough when you’re not too familiar with Photoshop, but applications on your mobile device can make it easy, intuitive, and fun. Expanding your editing skill set shouldn’t come at the cost of portability, nor should you settle for Instagram filters for all photo manipulation. Here are five must-have iOS and Android photo-editing apps to help you make your photos look even more incredible:
Tinder has been a staple of dating in the time of social media. Like any self-respecting single millennial who grew up on Disney fairy tales and now on the lookout for a happily ever after, I swipe through the app every now and then.*
The age of technology has ushered in a new age in the dating frontier. Gone are the days when people have to actually put themselves “out there” to meet people. In today’s time, it’s possible to meet new interesting people in the comfort of your own home via a smartphone application.
There’s a saying that goes “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” but Snapchat may not be feeling all too flattered after another blatant move to copy one of the app’s more popular features.
The feature, Snapchat Stories — a public compilation of snaps from a user’s day.
The culprit, Facebook. Yep, following Snapchat Stories clones finding their way to Instagram and Messenger (both Facebook properties), the world’s largest social network is bringing Snapchat’s bread and butter over to WhatsApp.
One of the more tedious tasks for Android users is updating apps. That’s because Google Play requires you to re-download an entire app in order to experience the latest patches. Fortunately, things are about to change, and it’s thanks to a technique called file-by-file patching.
Fingerprint sensors have become so mainstream on smartphones, even entry-level handsets are feeling the love. Now that practically everyone has one, it’s time to add to its functionality. An app called Fingerprint Gestures is here to do just that.
In an attempt to get back its fans, the developers behind Pokémon Go are holding their first major event: a Halloween special that guarantees more in-game candy for everyone who participates. Are you in?
We’re not used to seeing so many hardware announcements from Google at once, which made the major event earlier today all the more special. It’s not going to be something we’ll fondly remember eight years from now (ahem, Google Senior VP), there were several needle-moving products unveiled. Let’s see which ones are hot, and which are not.
Facebook came up with an interesting statistic today: 450 million people visit buy-and-sell groups on the social network each month. Realizing how much potential there is in e-commerce, Facebook decided to launch Marketplace, which is a lot like eBay.
Here’s some news that’s sure to spark the Android versus iOS debate. According to research done by Apteligent, Android 7.0 Nougat is much more likely to experience network problems as compared to iOS 10. On top of that, Nougat is even more unstable than Android 6.0 Marshmallow and older versions.
Snapchat made two major announcements today: One, the company has changed its name to just Snap; secondly, Snap released its first physical product, and it’s a pair of sunglasses with a camera on board.
The Pokémon Go Plus accessory is finally available, and it’s here to rid users of the nuisances Pokémon Go players have been experiencing since its launch. No, the wearable won’t cure the broken tracking system or the in-game errors, but it’ll make creature catching a little less of a headache.
Apple’s tenth version of iOS is out of beta and finally in public hands. We’ve had it for a while now, and even though it isn’t a drastic change from iOS 9, every new feature adds to the highly mature and already intuitive interface. Let’s get down to the ones that stand out most for us.
So iOS 10 is out. And while we do think Apple’s “biggest release ever” is great and works as advertised on newer devices, the software update might not be to your liking, or it simply doesn’t run well on your iPhone or iPad. Which leaves you with one option: downgrade to the previous version of iOS.
Despite constant warnings not to download apps outside of Google Play and Apple’s App Store, people are doing it anyway, and it’s getting increasingly worse. Security experts at Trend Micro noticed a rise in the number of adware installed on smartphones, and repackaged Pokémon Go and Minecraft software are at the heart of the problem.
Pokémon Go updates have been hard to come by lately, what with the continued expansion of the wildly popular smartphone game to more territories across the globe. But a new version is rolling out today, offering several tweaks and bug fixes that could improve your gaming experience.
Here’s the full list of changes included in Pokémon Go version 0.33.
Put on your walking shoes, and head to the gym — the pokémon gym that is.
After a long wait, Pokémon Go is now officially available in the Philippines. The hit smartphone game is already available on iOS and Android. Those who own an iPhone can get it from the App Store. If the app doesn’t show up on your Android phone, you can hit this Play Store link.
News broke out on Monday that Verizon, one of the giants of the U.S. telecom industry, is acquiring Yahoo for a small fraction of what it was worth during the dot-com boom glory days. Reports said the agreement was worth five billion dollars in cash — which is a lot but still nowhere near Yahoo’s $125-billion valuation in 2000, when it had enough in the coffers to buy Google.
It turns out the Japanese will have to wait a wee bit longer to play Pokémon Go in the place that started it all.
A source with knowledge of the announcement told TechCrunch today. One of the biggest reasons for the launch being pushed back is the leaked internal email from McDonald’s, the mobile game’s first sponsor, that made its way to Japanese forums and image site Imgur.
