Apple adds “Sharing Selfies” section to the App Store

selllllfffiiiieeeOh gosh. I’m pretty sure that absolutely zero people asked for this. But it’s here. Apple has given it to us: An app feature section on the App Store entitled “Sharing Selfies.”

Personally, I’m about ready for the word “selfie” to die a slow, miserable death. I cringe when I hear it. (more…)

Ryan Petrich Reveals Hidden Topography Setting In Google Maps

Cydia IconAs we all know, the native Google Maps application was recently released following its departure in the iOS 6 update. Today, iDownloadBlog is reporting that the app includes a hidden feature — topography.

Early feedback shows the app may be superior to the Android version, even though both versions of the app offer the same basic set of features.  While the Android version offers more features such as Wikipedia  integration and other Google services, the iOS version offers a more clean and intuitive experience.

Both may be useful apps, but the more recent iOS version seems to have one feature that has yet to be publicly announced. (more…)

iCloud Lets You Re-Download Banned Apps in iOS 5 (and 4?)

If you have ever installed an application that was later yanked from the App Store, you can now reinstall them thanks to a new iCloud feature in iOS 5 that lets you re-grab your iTunes purchases if you don’t have them downloaded on the device you are using. This might just be an error on Apple’s part, which could be fixed soon, but in the meantime you’ll be able to grab yourself a new copy of banned apps such as VLC Player or iDOS. This is a great opportunity for people who upgraded to a new firmware or restored their iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to re-download the apps that they have most definitely missed.

Furthermore, Engadget reports that they were able to successfully install a copy of Tris, pulled more than three years ago, on an iPhone 3GS running stock iOS 4.3.3. This indicates that this might be a feature that is not just limited to the beta versions of iOS 5. If you’re running a version of iOS 4, you can try to reproduce this ability by tapping on Updates > Purchased in the App Store and re-downloading any applications you had that are no longer available on the App Store. If it works for you, feel free to share.
