Apple's HealthKit won't track fitness data from A...

Yesterday, 10:29 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

Google's Android Wear won't share fitness data with Apple's HealthKit platform, company spokespeople confirmed today. Instead, fitness data, such as step count and hear rate, will only be tracked through the Google Fit dashboard, rather than Apple's health dashboard. From Buzzfeed News:

An Apple spokeswoman confirmed to BuzzFeed News that Android Wear won't integrate with HealthKit, Apple's platform for developers of health and fitness apps. She also said that decision was entirely Google's.

Google also confirmed that Android Wear–gathered fitness data would bypass HealthKit. "That said, Android Wear on iOS absolutely supports the mass majority of Wear features we see our Android users using and loving," a company spokeswoman said in an email.

While this news doesn't come as much of a surprise, it does point to a problem for those who would prefer to keep their fitness data within the confines of Apple's ecosystem. However, Google also isn't alone in this decision, as Fitbit has foregone sharing fitness data with Apple's HealthKit as well.

Android Wear made its debut on iOS yesterday, opening up the wide array of smartwatches based on the platform to iPhone users for the first time. However, it remains to be seen whether this will help Google gain any ground with its wearable platform.

New drone video shows progress on Apple Campus 2 construc...

Yesterday, 10:12 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

Apple's Campus 2 construction has been well underway for a while, and a new video from drone pilot Duncan Sinfield shows just how far progress has come. Sinfield's uses comparison shots from his last video, recorded on August 1, to show that the underground parking garage is coming along nicely, while the rooftop on the west parking lot is nearing completion. Also shown off in the video is the progress of the auditorium and research facilities.

Along with comparison shots from his last video, Sinfield has added audio Steve Jobs' comments on the building when he unveiled Apple's original plans, giving us a blow-by-blow of each portion of the campus as the drone makes its rounds.

Apple's Campus 2 is set to be completed by the end of 2016, at which point it will become the workspace for 12,000 employees and cover a gargantuan 2.8 million square feet.

Instagram adds some improvements for its Direct messaging...

Yesterday, 05:38 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
instagram-update-new-sharing-iphone.jpg?
Instagram is once again adding some new features to its popular photo sharing and filtering app. This time, the Facebook-owned company has made a number of improvements in its Direct messaging feature.

One new addition is the ability to use threaded messages. Instagram says:

Instead of creating a new conversation every time you send a photo or video, your threads are based on the people in them — and your moments flow along naturally.


Another improvement will allow direct conversations to begin with friends based on an Instagram post:

Now, you'll find an arrow next to the like and comment icons under every post. Tap it to send that post to a friend or group as a message using Instagram Direct. It will appear as part of your conversation, and you can tap the photo or video to see and like the original post. You can also send hashtag pages and location pages by tapping the arrow icon in the top right-hand corner.


Instagram also now allows users to name their groups, and there's a new quick camera feature so people can respond to messages with a new photo or one in their camera roll. Finally, Direct now allows for larger emoji characters compared to earlier versions. Source: Instagram

Airplane Mode's new music video was #ShotOniPhone6

Yesterday, 05:03 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
So you want to make a fun music video for your new song, but you're on a budget, what do you do? If you're musical duo Airplane Mode, you take Apple's #ShotOniPhone6 campaign to heart, get a group of friends together, and go for it. The video, for the song "I Said So!" was shot around New York City on an iPhone 6 Plus, and edited in Final Cut Pro X.
It stars not only Airplane Mode's Dave Wiskus and Joe Cieplinski, but also Clayton Morris of FOX, Christina Warren of Mashable, Jonathan Mann of Song a Day, Ophira Eisenberg of NPR, and indie musician Julian Velard, all listening—and dancing—to the song throughout New York.
From Airplane Mode:

Everything was shot on an iPhone 6 Plus. Jonathan suggested we use Hyperlapse to help make sure things were nice and stable. He meant well, and for the most part it was a good suggestion, but it means that the first two days worth of footage is in 720p. Oops. The built-in stabilization on the 6 Plus is good enough that I can't tell the difference in shakiness, so we ended up switching back to the stock camera app.


Wiskus also credits Jonathan Mann with setting the tone of the video:

It's hard to overstate how important Jonathan was to making this all work. We kept showing his raw footage to people before getting their shots, in hopes that his energy would carry over. It absolutely did. He's the spiritual center of the video.


Watch the video above, then be sure to read the full story behind it at Airplane Mode's blog.

Here are all the iPhones and iPads compatible with iOS 9...

Yesterday, 04:11 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

ios-9-content-blocking-extensions-hero.j

We've done a deep dive into iOS 9 content blocker extensions but if all you're really interested in is whether or not they'll work on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, here's the complete list!

  • iPhone 6
  • iPhone 6 Plus
  • iPhone 5s
  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad Air
  • iPad mini 2
  • iPad mini 3
  • iPod touch 6

Of course, any new products Apple releases this fall, including iPhone 6s and a theoretical iPad Pro, will certainly work with content blocking extensions as well.

If you noticed all of the models listed have something in common—they're all using 64-bit Apple A7 or later processors—there's a reason for it: speed. Apple wants content blocking extensions to execute as fast as possible so web performance is as good as possible. So, while older processors could handle it, only 64-bit processors will handle it fast enough for Apple.

(Long time iPhone owners may remember when video recording was iPhone 3GS or later, because 15fps on an iPhone 3G just wasn't good enough.)

Beats Electronics' president talks working with Apple...

Yesterday, 03:36 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

beats-mixr-iphone6-hero.jpg?itok=Mk8lnPz

Luke Wood, president of Beats' hardware division, recently sat down at the Beats Symposium in Sydney, Australia to talk about working at Apple, the impact of Beats as a cultural force, and how the company keeps improving its products. Wood mentioned that the integration of Apple and Beats is going well a little more than a year in, saying that he was pleasantly surprised by the high level of integrity at the company.

Wood also talked about how the acquisition was a natural fit, given that both companies focus on building premium product experiences. From Mashable:

We've always been consistent at Beats with focusing on premium audio. We're looking at our little audio slice of the world and trying to focus on creating a stellar product experience. I think that's also the fundamental DNA of everything Steve wanted to accomplish at Apple. By product experience, that includes ID, design, technology, innovation, simplicity. Those are always things that have been fundamental to our DNA, too.

As to some of the pushback that Beats receives over the quality of its products, Wood only says that while he's proud of the products the company has created, he's even happier with its current lineup.

You can read the full interview at the link below.

Best wood cases for the iPad Air 2

Yesterday, 03:00 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News

grovemade-ipadsleeve-2.jpg?itok=4sxp2YpY

Ever feel like you need a touch of nature to counteract all of that cutting edge technology?

We've been poking around wooden cases for the iPad Air 2, and these are the best we've come up with. You'll find a healthy selection of full cases with a wooden frame to slim and light smart covers. Types of wood used can include mahogany, bamboo, walnut, oak, and plenty of others. Obviously we're showing preference to cases that are made with sustainably-sourced wood. In many instances, these beautiful cases will be available for the original iPad Air and iPad mini as well, so be sure to take a look no matter which model you have.

DodoCase

The DodoCase is a particularly personal kind of product thanks to a design lineage with traditional bookbinding. The interior and exterior cover are highly customizable, with a variety of colors available, including user-submitted imagery. The bamboo frame on the inside keeps your iPad secure and offers continued access to the Lightning port, volume keys, and headphone jack.

Toast Button Cover

Toast makes slim, laser-cut wood covers for iPad. They attach by a residue-free adhesive, and wrap around the edges of your iPad Air 2. The package even includes button covers to keep the look and feel consistent. Walnut, ash, bamboo, and ebony options are available, and additional extras such as custom etching, front panel, and smart cover can be tacked on from their site. Dig into Windows Central's review of the Surface Pro 3 Toast cover to get an idea of what to expect.

Pad & Quill Contega Case

Pad & Quill also has a book-style case for the iPad Air 2. Brown or black bonded leather is available for the exterior, and a handful of colors for the inside cloth. A Baltic birch frame inside keeps you iPad safe, and a classy bookmark helps you pop it out. If you want to go all-out, you can upgrade for $40 to the Aria, which features a stitched, full-grain leather front cover, or save a few bucks with a linen cover instead.

Miniot Cover

minot-ipadair-case2.jpg?itok=ulIldGkO

Miniot offers a family of particularly attractive smart covers that attach to your iPad's built-in magnets. The cover is segmented, allowing users to roll it up behind their iPad as a stand. Every cover is made in Holland with locally-sourced cherrywood, walnut, mahogany, oak, and wenge. An interior microfiber keeps your iPad screen unscuffed, and there's an optional engraving available if you want to get really personal.

Grovemade Sleeve

Grovemade's wool sleeve for iPad sports an imaginative geomatric pattern on a slim wood veneer to afford it flexibility. Models in maple and walnut are available, and both have a leather draw strap to easily pull out an otherwise snug and secure iPad. Other options are also available for the iPad mini or your Macbook.
