Flappy Birds For The iPhone and iPod Touch

Are You Ready To Deal With What It Takes?

Ready to fly away? Flappy Birds is a smartphone application developed for all kinds of devices; one of them being the iPhone and iPod Touch.  This application is free and very straight forward. Get the small winged bird across the Mario like tubes. The longer you can last, the higher score you will achieve. This game doesn’t seem very hard, but it sure is a challenge. Even the slightest touch can make you lose this simple game and then you’ll have to start all over again.

There aren’t any cheats to this game for now. As they upgrade the application and give it better features, there may be some easier ways to go. Who knows though? They might decide to keep the game at its simple feature or upgrade it with more complexities. The highest score I’ve gotten so far is 19, but some people have gotten up to 30! I’ve only played this game several times (it’s still brand new to me) and it just relies on the timing for tapping on the screen to let the bird fly. Usually when people first play Flappy Birds, they always miss on their first try… What is your highest score and how long did it take you to get to where you are?

Apple’s New iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s

Would You Choose The iPhone 5s or the iPhone 5c?

Apple is finally releasing their new iPhone 5c and 5s, but what makes these two phones better than the ones out there and what is the difference between the two? In this article you are about to get all of your questions answered.

The iPhone 5s is a newly technologically built phone made from Apple. They’ve throw some new things like the “Touch ID” which allows you to scan your finger on the home button and it unlocks your phone/makes you do your purchases that way. It also has a built in A7 chip with a 64-bit desktop-class architecture which allows a better performance making it 2x faster than the older phones. The camera has even improved with some new things. Larger pixels and a larger aperture (2.2) along with giving your shots the effect of burst mode, and recording HD videos along with slow motion effects.

Both of them have iOS7 which is a better multitasking program with other things like Air Drop and Control Center. It makes the phone look like it’s something different than any other Apple device made. The 5c has a lot of the same things as the 5s, but it mainly has to do with the color options. If you like design and color then the 5c is best for you. If you like better programing and graphics, the 5s is the one to choose.

These phones are coming out on September 20th at 8AM in your local Apple Store. Or you can go ahead and pre-order your phone now. Got any questions? Comment below the article!

How To Get Into A Locked iPhone Without Passcode

I found a video that shows this neat little trick. It actually allows you to get into the phone without needing the passcode. This works for iOS 6.1 but it didn’t show about any other previous iOS programs. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this, then don’t do it. It’s nice to know how it works though.

First you want to slide to unlock and hit the “emergency” button. Once you’re there, you want to hold down the power button like you’re actually going to turn it off, but clicking the “cancel” button instead. The top area (where your time, service bars, and power bar shows) should be blue (instead of black). After that, you want to type 911 but then quickly cancel it so it didn’t go through and actually call anyone. Turn the screen off (by pressing the power button once) and then slide to unlock.

The next step is to hold the power button for three seconds and as soon as you’re on the third second, you want to hit the “emergency” button (while holding the power button still). This unlocks the phone without any passcode and you can view anything through the phone, but you HAVE TO HOLD DOWN ON THE POWER BUTTON THE ENTIRE TIME. If you don’t, it will shut off again and you’ll be back from where you started. Here’s the video if you want to watch it:

Home Share Not Working With Apple Mobile Devices

Along With Music, This Also Works For Your Movies Too.

Last night I got some new music and haven’t put it on my iPod Touch yet. I decided that since it’s all on my computer, why not just home share it? So I gave it a try and when I went to my music library (and tapped the “more” button), I noticed that the “share” option was nowhere to be found. I did some research and it seemed like all kinds of people with an updated iOS 6 are having this problem, but that isn’t the source to the problem.

I called up Apple Tech Support and they told me all of the basic things on getting home sharing to work. Like make sure you are connected to the same wireless internet that your computer is on (this also includes iPhone and iPad being connected to the Wi-Fi). Or to make sure that home sharing is actually turned on. They also told me to check (in my settings under the music section) if the home sharing account was logged in correctly and it was. Because I had all of this done and still nothing, they told me to log out and log back in. Still nothing, so they told me that I had to go ahead and uninstall my iTunes software completely.

If this didn’t work, I’d have to call back, but apparently it did. In order to uninstall everything, you need to follow the directions here. You HAVE to FOLLOW EACH STEP exactly as it is told, or else it won’t work. The only problem I had with this was that it wouldn’t get rid of my “Apple” folder. If you can’t get rid of it using Windows, then you’d have to boot you’re computer in safe mode and use the DOS command prompt. Keep following the instructions after that and then install iTunes again. Uninstalling iTunes won’t lose any of your music or anything in your iTunes library. It’s all good and that was how I was able to get my home sharing to work.

If home sharing still doesn’t work, then you are going to need to unplug your router and wait at least for ten seconds. Plug it back in and make sure that all devices are connected to the internet. Still have a problem? Turn the Apple devices on, wait for ten seconds, and turn them back on. This should do the trick.

iOS 6 For The iPod Touch, iPhone, And iPad

It Gives Everything A New Look For The Better...

When we find out there’s a new iOS program, we just usually download it and not even read/know about what it’s about. I want to tell you what this program can actually do and how it is something we should all be excited about. Having an upgrade to anything should be a great experience and this is something that all Apple users should download when they can.

Usually, Apple is good about sending out a message asking if you’d like to download the new iOS programs (like iOS 6). Because of iCloud, you don’t actually have to plug your mobile device into your computer and sync it into iTunes. After you have the new iOS 6 downloaded, you probably may not notice that much, but really there are some huge benefits with iOS 6.

Some of the new things that they’ve added make everything seem so much better/cool. For example, if you go into your music or even the App Store, they’ve changed how the designs use to look. When you download an application, it will show you the progress on how far it’s downloaded without exiting the App Store. They’ve also added Genius, so it can be easier to find applications that suite you. It also doesn’t ask for your password when downloading applications (unless they cost), but they do ask for it every once in a while. For the people who didn’t have the iPhone 4S, this upgrade (to the new iOS 6) gives you Siri.

They’ve also added an application called Passbook which is basically an application that lets you store all your passes in one place. This includes boarding passes, tickets, store cards, and coupons. It takes you to the App Store so you can download applications that do stuff like that. The downfall about the new iOS 6 is that they’ve taken out the YouTube application and now you have to download the official application in the App Store. It’s free (unless you have an iPad it costs some unless you download the iPhone version). You could also use Safari if you want to watch YouTube videos.

What do you think about the new iOS 6? Have you found other things that you like or dislike?

Apple iPhone 5 Released

Make Way For The Next Generation...

On September 21st, Apple is shipping the new iPhone 5 to the United States, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and Britain. This phone is supposed to be a huge upgrade compared to the 4 and the 4S. It has a 4 inch retina display and feels lighter than the 4S. 4G will be programed in the phone (instead of the 3G network), so you get faster and better reception/quality. This iPhone, is going to run twice as fast as the last generation by using a program called A6. You can pre-order it this Friday for only $199 with the data plan. It will pack three microphones making a built-in voice assistant Siri and an 8 megapixel camera that can take dimensional views.

The iPhone 5 will be available to Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and Sprint. It should be able to last for about eight hours of 4G browsing. The operating system will be iOS 6 and everything will just be a whole new experience with this new phone. Software upgrades like voice navigation and “Passbook” (stores electronic boarding passes, sports tickets and gift cards), will be included. Not only that, but SIRI WILL BE IMPROVED! With many more questions that can be answered and not just be some useless voice system that doesn’t know anything. There’s also these new headphones that come with it called EarPods which are suppose to give you surround sound and better fitting in the ear. What do you think about this new device?
