Thread: iSO5 - Apple users

  1. #1

    iSO5 - Apple users

    Apple launched three BIG things last week

    • Lion
    • iOS5
    • iCloud

    Apple mentioned 10 major features out of the 200 features they’ve claimed to have added in this latest version of iOS5.

    First of all, Apple really pissed off many people out there including developers and RIM. First, lets talk about the developers. The App Store is mostly filled with Reminder apps and those developers are really pissed off since yesterday’s keynote. Apple has put up their own reminders app in the latest version of iOS. This means, all those reminder apps you find on the AppStore at dead, or may be at least, very low sales. Apple has also included location based reminders that reminds you when you cross a “geo-barrier”. There were apps for this purposes, we reviewed Place Clock a while ago which was supposed to give you alarms when you reach a specific geo location. Apple borrowed features from all these apps out there and combined it into a single app.
    Secondly, its a hit to Camera app devs. Many developers including taptaptap, makers of Camera+, one of the best camera apps out there. Apple has added a feature to iOS 5 which lets you quickly open the camera from the lock screen even if the phone is locked. This means, less frequent use of third-party apps.
    You might figure out these stuff yourselves. Developers Instapaper wouldn’t be happy either with the latest announcements from Apple. Let’s move into nice little features of iOS 5.
