They are a good fit for non tech savvy people who want a smartphone that is easy to use. They are well built and maintain their resale value. They are not my cup of tea, but no on can deny they are effective at satisfying their customers. posted on 21 Apr 2015, 16:11 7 61. meanestgenius (Posts: 17660; Member since: 28 May 2014) Your comment was ok up until the end.

One of the most frequent questions we're getting these days is how to close all apps at once -- basically how to force quit or kill every app from the new multitasking/fast app switcher dock Apple introduced in iOS 4 for iPhone and iPod touch and iOS 4.2 for iPad. The short answer is you don't need to. Really. If you've been worried about it, relax. It's all good. For the long answer, read on after the break! Multitasking is more of a marketing terms these days than a technical one. Don't think of your iPhone as a Windows or Mac OS X machine because it's not. It isn't Windows Mobile or even Android either. iOS doesn't work that way. It doesn't (most of the time) leave a bunch of rogue processes running in the background that have to be force-quit. iOS manages all that for you. Most applications, when you exit them, save their state and "go to sleep". So if you were playing a game or looking at Settings and then hit the home button or switch to another app, it keeps track of where you … [Read more...] about No, you don’t need to kill all apps on your iPhone or iPad
I force close my apps all the time. I double click the home button on my iPhone 6S and close out of every app I've used, even in the past 20 minutes. It's a terrible habit, but it makes me feel good. Maybe it's even an obsessive-compulsive tendency? Regardless, I've always wondered: is force closing apps good for my phone? Is it actually bad for it? I took to the internet. A couple years ago, SVP of platforms and ecosystems at Google, Hiroshi Lockheimer, tweeted to a couple tech reporters that it's best to leave Android alone. The OS will manage apps for you; there's no need to manually force close them. iOS does the same. I called up an independent iOS developer, Ish Shabazz, who recommended against it. And even Apple says it's not a good idea. In an email to a user last year, Apple's SVP of software engineering, Craig Federighi, said that quitting iOS apps doesn't help battery life. He doesn't do it. Apple's support page also says to only force close apps when they're unresponsive. … [Read more...] about Should you force close your apps?
Apple has said a manufacturing issue affecting “a very limited number” of its new flagship iPhone 5S handsets means some users will be experiencing longer-than-usual charge times or reduced battery life. The phone is supposed to offer 10 hours of talk time on 3G and up to 250 hours in standby mode.The Cupertino company told the NY Times Tuesday that affected users would receive a new handset.“We recently discovered a manufacturing issue affecting a very limited number of iPhone 5S devices that could cause the battery to take longer to charge or result in reduced battery life,” Apple spokeswoman Teresa Brewer said. “We are reaching out to customers with affected phones and will provide them with a replacement phone.”Few detailsBrewer declined to offer any details regarding the nature of the manufacturing flaw, nor say how many handsets the company believes are affected. Apple sold around nine million new 5S and 5C phones on their first weekend of … [Read more...] about iPhone 5S: Apple acknowledges battery life issue, will replace affected phones
Trapit has been on the news reader scene for awhile now, bringing its user-facing app to the market, with some impressive technology behind its service. But starting today, Trapit is giving a taste of its smarts not only to readers, but to content producers by offering small and mid-sized Web publishers the opportunity to bake Trapit’s brain into their own news apps.With the advent of mobile apps, newsreader apps have shaped today’s content consumptive ways. The articles that we read don’t always come from our favorite publications; they’re recommended based on relevance to an interest. And who we read is ultimately dictated by whom these newsreaders have decided to partner with – typically the major publishers. By in large, you could say that some mid-sized and many smaller publications are getting crowded out. So Trapit wants to change that with its Publisher Suite.Trapit, unlike competitors such as Zite and Flipboard, has a secret sauce rooted in … [Read more...] about Trapit launches Publisher Suite so that all apps can become news reader apps
Just a few minutes after 10:00 am PST, nearly all of our suspicions about the new iPhone were confirmed. As Phil Schiller flipped through the slideshow, everyone watching seemed to react like the kid who shook his Christmas presents too much and ruined the surprise. Due in part to a large number of leaks during the production phase, we had a good idea of what was going to be announced today — but now that all the little details are out, there a handful of improvements we didn’t anticipate. You can get a good idea from the photos, but here’s a quick list of some of the standout new specs:The iPhone 5 will be 18 percent thinner than the iphone 4S, and will weigh in at 112 grams (20 percent lighter than the 4S)The phone will be a bit longer than older models, with a 4-inch, 1136×640 pixel display. This will allow another row of apps to appear on the first page.Additionally, there will be an improved camera and additional microphones, making for vastly better … [Read more...] about Gallery: Up close with the iPhone 5, Apple’s biggest, thinnest, lightest phone ever
When you double-tap the home button of your iPad or iPhone, the dock will show a list of all the recently used apps and some of them could still be running in the background.You tap and hold your finger on the app icon until it begins to jiggle and you can then press the red “minus” sign to close one or more of these background apps. If a particular app is not running, this action will simply remove its listing from the multitasking bar.If you would like to close all the background apps at once, here’s a free app for iPhone and iPad that can help. You don’t even have to jailbreak your device.Launch the app and then shake your iPhone / iPad to terminate every single app that could be running in the background. Alternatively, you can just pull and release the processes list (see video) to close all the background running apps at once.Close the Problematic AppsIn the past, I have seem apps, especially games, that became unresponsive (freeze) and force … [Read more...] about How to Close All Background iOS Apps at Once
