We're just under a week away from the big September 9 iPhone event, and Apple has already started putting up decorations at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Thanks to a few early Twitter posts, we've gotten a look at some of the early decorations. Since this is the first bit of flair to go up, expect to see much more before the event kicks off on September 9.

The tag line for the event is "Hey Siri, give us a hint!" and that hint presumably entails the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. We're also expecting to get the final releases on iOS 9 and watchOS 2, so there's plenty to look forward to. The event kicks off on September 9 at 10:00 a.m., and iMore will be there on the ground to bring you the latest news as it breaks.

Want to see Sphero's BB-8 tackle sand, cats, and dogs...

Yesterday, 11:09 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
<div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><div class="video"><div class="video_iframe"><iframe src="http://www.youtube.c...#38;showinfo=0"width="627" height="353" class="video-filter video-youtube vf-waye0rzs0oi" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></div></div> <!--/video--> <p>I may be <em>technically</em> on vacation through this weekend, iMore, but I couldn't wait to play with the newest robotic addition to my office: my very own BB-8, AKA "the closest thing to a droid companion Serenity has wanted since she was six." Does it hold up to its promise? READ (or watch) ON.</p> <h2>The droid deets</h2> <p>BB-8 is, of course, the leading droid in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And thanks to iOS robotics company Sphero, you can have your very own miniature BB-8 rolling around your home. Sphero's BB-8 is about the size and heft of a softball, sporting a magnetized truffle-sized head. Like the Apple Watch, BB-8 uses inductive charging on a smart little stand that doubles as a nice little display for the droid when he's not on patrol.</p> <h2>Patrol time</h2> <p>You may think I'm joking about "patrol", but no: Activate Patrol mode on the companion app, and BB-8 can explore all on his lonesome—no manual joystick controls required. I set him exploring the basement, where he awoke to find a most fiercesome creature. (You can see all the fun between cat and droid in the video up above.)</p> <p>I really enjoyed watching BB-8 drive around on patrol, in part for all the walls, feet, guitars, and tripods he accidentally smashed into while mapping his terrain. The droid has no internal sensors letting him know where edges and walls are, so he has to figure it out by feel alone—and that means smashing into a lot of objects.</p> <p>Those objects get represented as tiny Stormtrooper heads in a digital "terrain" map that BB-8 makes while out on patrol. I'm not sure if those maps get saved as individual locations for BB-8 to refer back to—he doesn't seem any smarter about my office than when he first rolled around, though he does continue to prefer under the couch as a hiding place when he smashes into something.</p> <p>BB-8 will lose his tiny little head when he goes too fast into an object: The magnets are strong with this one, but he is not a Jedi yet. Thankfully, it's an easy task to pop his head back on his body.</p> <h2>Drive mode</h2> <p>You can also, of course, drive BB-8 manually, using a circular digital joystick. Driving a sphere is a little odd at first, but BB-8 has a helpful blue taillight to help you orient which side of his little robotic body is "up". In Drive mode, you can even prompt BB-8 to react with yes or no responses, joy, fear, circular and square patrols, and more.</p> <p>It's in Drive mode where you can trigger BB-8's (admittedly rudimentary) voice commands, too: Say "Hey BB-8" to get the droid's attention before giving it any number of commands—"It's a trap!" being my favorite.</p> <p>I drove over a variety of surfaces, including carpet, all of which were functional enough; I will say, though, that smooth, flat surfaces seem to work best for BB-8. The only indoor surface where he failed entirely was my couch, with its various divots and creases. Everywhere else, he blipped along like a little speed demon.</p> <h2>The downside</h2> <p>This droid is probably my all-time favorite Star Wars toy I've ever owned. (Sorry, numerous R2D2 items in my office, but you aren't actual robots.) That said, even with this distinction, BB-8 isn't without a <em>few</em> flaws.</p> <h3>1: BB-8 gets dirty, quick.</h3> <p>Yep, his little robotic head may connect to his body with magnets, but it also uses little wheels to move around his body—wheels that very, very quickly get clogged up with dirt, hair, and all sorts of unpleasantness.</p> <h3>2: Don't go chasing sand dunes</h3> <p>Your first thought upon getting BB-8 might be "Let's reenact the Force Awakens trailer!" Sadly, while Sphero's little droid <em>is</em> waterproof, it doesn't do so well with dirt and sand—it frequently got stuck in divots and grass patches in my backyard, to the amusement of one of my dogs.</p> <h3>3: The app does the heavy lifting</h3> <p>BB-8 has a battery life of about an hour; to keep the fun going for a maximum amount of time, Sphero understandably had to move some features from the robot itself to the iOS app. BB-8's sounds and "holographic videos" all come from the device you're controlling it with, and you can't get any cute little interactions unless you have the app running in the foreground.</p> <h2>Bottom line</h2> <p><a href='http://www.imore.com/want-see-spheros-bb-8-tackle-sand-cats-and-dogs-check-out-our-review' title="Want to see Sphero's BB-8 tackle sand, cats, and dogs? Check out our review"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large_wm_brw/public/field/image/2015/09/imore-bb8-hero.jpg?itok=bjB6Z4_2' /></a></p> <p>Those nitpicks aside, BB-8 is still the closest thing we've gotten to having a droid companion in our homes—he's adorable, shed-free, and oozes of personality. You can currently find him in half a dozen major outlets online and in person, though I'd hurry: droids this cute don't last long on store shelves.</p> </div></div></div><br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/238385243818/u/49/f/616881/c/33998/s/4995ae73/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/238385243818/u/49/f/616881/c/33998/s/4995ae73/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/238385243818/u/49/f/616881/c/33998/s/4995ae73/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/238385243818/u/49/f/616881/c/33998/s/4995ae73/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/238385243818/u/49/f/616881/c/33998/s/4995ae73/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/238385243818/u/49/f/616881/c/33998/s/4995ae73/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/238385243818/u/49/f/616881/c/33998/s/4995ae73/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/238385243818/u/49/f/616881/c/33998/s/4995ae73/a2.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/238385243818/u/49/f/616881/c/33998/s/4995ae73/a2t.img" border="0"/><img width='1' height='1' src='http://tipb.com.feedsportal.com/c/33998/f/616881/s/4995ae73/sc/3/mf.gif' border='0'/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TheIphoneBlog/~4/Tw1HYoFlVLY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

If you rely on prescription drugs, you know how expensive they can be, but OneRx thinks it can help with that. The iPhone app finds discounts on the prescription drugs you need, letting you compare prices at different pharmacies, use coupons, and more.

These are some of the benefits of using OneRx:

  • Automatically applies pharmaceutical coupons and discounts.
  • Automatically compares prices at local pharmacies.
  • Automatically applies prescription benefits in your insurance plan.
  • Average person saves up to $750 annually when using the OneRx discount card.

Once you pick the pharmacy with the best price, OneRx will apply any discounts or savings for that pharmacy. At checkout, share your screen with the pharmacist to save on your purchase.

03 Sep 2015

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

The end of the week is upon us, which means it's time for another free app of the week on the App Store. This week you can sit back and practice your soccer skills with Flick Kick Football.
Flick Kick Football is a relatively simple game that tasks you with taking on a wall of defenders as you try to net a soccer ball as many times as you can. The game features multiple modes, along with a simple "flick" mechanic for kicking the ball into the net. You'll also be able to customize your team, the ball, and much more. Here's a breakdown of Flick Kick Football's main features:

  • Intuitive Flick Kicking – Sweep your finger across the ball to drive, curve and power the ball past walls of defenders
  • Unique 'Golden Era' of Football Presentation – Immerse yourself in graphics that will bring the nostalgia of the era back
  • GameCenter Leaderboards and Achievements - so the world can see how much of a better player you are than your friend
  • Online Multiplayer and classic pass and play!
  • Practice Mode, to get your game up to par
  • Bullseye Mode, can you smash the targets?
  • Arcade Mode, to show what you can do when it really counts
  • Time Attack for those that like to race the clock, or with limited time for greatness

Flick Kick Football will be free on the App Store through September 10, so hit up the link below to flick and kick your way to glory.
