iOS 6: iTunes, App Store, and iBooks all remodeled

One of my most-used apps on the iPhone is actually the App Store app itself — I download lots and lots of different apps for review, and I constantly need to search around and find information on apps for posts. So I’m excited to see that all three of Apple’s major content stores on iOS have been updated for iOS 6: iTunes’ music and movies store, the App Store itself, and even the iBookstore have all been updated for the new OS.

The most obvious change at first will likely be the slight color change: The top and bottom bars in each store are now a darker gray…

iOS 6: Accessibility gets a boost

There are a number of new accessibility options in iOS 6 today, and you don’t necessarily need to be disabled to use them. For example, I accidentally dropped my iPhone 4 a few weeks ago and broke the Sleep button on top of the unit, and since then, I’ve been using the AssistiveTouch feature in the options to lock my phone’s screen with software rather than hardware. That menu has gotten an update in the new OS, allowing direct access to Voice Control, Screenshot, and the Multitasking menu, among other new and updated options…

Skitch Finds New Life At Evernote With iPhone VersionWhen your favorite app gets bought by a bigger company, you have good reason to fear for its life. But when that company is Evernote, something different happens. The app sticks around, and it gets better. On Wednesday, Skitch came to the iPhone, and it syncs everywhere through Evernote. Now you can annotate your images from anywhere.
Skitch was beloved by many before Evernote bought it. It’s one of the quickest, sharpest tools for cropping, resizing, highlighting and annotating images…

iOS 6: Minor visual changes come to the Music app

In iOS 5, the iPad’s iPod app got both a name change to “Music” and a complete rethinking of the user interface. While some people may have found the new, visually-driven interface an improvement, I found it so cumbersome that it forced me to completely re-evaluate the media distribution across my devices. I wound up putting most of my music on my iPhone and only keeping the most essential of tracks on my iPad, because the navigation UI just isn’t suited to a huge library like mine.

Thankfully, the changes made in iOS 6 are nowhere near as radical as those in iOS 5…

Apple's iOS 6 Maps App Falls Short In Early ReviewsMost people wont’ get their hands on an iPhone 5 until later this week, but the early reviews are in. Most critics are enamored with Apple’s latest smartphone: It’s faster, thinner, taller and, even though the camera isn’t a huge upgrade, it’s still an improvement. But one new feature isn’t getting much love: the native mapping application in iOS 6.
Apple made headlines earlier this year when it was confirmed that Google Maps would no longer be the default app for mapping and navigation on iOS devices…

Some see iPhone queue as marketing opportunity

Most of us sit in line to get an iPhone for our personal use, but some see the iPhone launch frenzy as a way to grab some free exposure or make some extra cash. A report by Philip Elmer-DeWitt of Apple 2.0, profiles some of the early line-waiters who are using the opportunity to promote their website or raise some money for cancer research in the UK.

Sitting outside New York City’s iconic Fifth Avenue store are seven early birds who are braving the elements for more than five days. The first two are there to promote Vibe, their new mobile, social sharing service, while the other five are staying in the line thanks to Gazelle…

HTC 8X and 8S priced up: iPhone 5 and GSIII undercutHTC refused to be drawn on pricing for its new Windows Phone 8X and 8S smartphones, saying only that they’d launch in November, but that hasn’t stopped retailers stepping up with some SIM-free numbers. The good news is that, even without a subsidy to help out, both Windows Phone 8 devices undercut key rivals like the iPhone 5 and Samsung’s Galaxy S III.

Retailer Clove has the 8X up for preorder at £399.99 including tax ($648), while the 8S is listed at £224.99 including tax ($364)…

Daily iPhone App: Square Enix's Unreal game is called Demons' Score

Oh man, Square Enix’s entries to the App Store just keep getting weirder. We heard a while back that the company would be working on an original game using Epic’s Unreal engine for iOS, and here it is: It’s called Demons’ Score, and it’s a rhythm-based shooter. No, really.

The idea of the game is that, like the great Elite Beat Agents (which, by the way, should probably get an iOS port sooner rather than later), you have to tap circles on the screen as they count down, in time to whatever track is playing…
