New Notification system on iOS 5

New Notification on iOS 5

Yes, finally a new notification system for iPhone and iPad! No longer we will be interrupted by notification when we are playing our games! Apple will be implementing new Notification that will not interrupt your game or apps, but you will still be notify when that’s a new email or sms.

No Interruptions from notification

This is pretty important, as iOS devices are already one of the best gaming devices, but the gaming experience is not as good due to the interrupt we always get when that’s a new message and our game will be interrupted. Now no more.

Locked Screen notification

Locked Screen notification! Yeah! So now you will have a summary list of notification you have gotten on your locked screen, so you won’t need to unlock your phone just to see all those notification! Pretty neat.

 


Mac OS Lion just $29.99 coming in July!

There are more than 250 new features that will be on Mac OS Lion which will be coming to the Mac App Store by July. Yes, only Mac App Store. So we won’t be seeing Mac OS Lion in boxes in Apple store.

So all existing  Snow Leopard users can download Lion via Mac App Store. It will be around a 4gb download, which is pretty small, and Mac App Store download’s speed is pretty fast even for areas outside US, like in Singapore. What’s cool is you will be able to just purchase 1 copy of Lion and install on all authorized Mac, which will be at least 5 Macs! Pretty cool right?

You know what is better? The price! Just for USD $29.99, you can get Mac OS lion for your family. I can’t wait for July to come!


New Mail.app for Mac OS Lion

New Mail.app

Yes, Mac OS Lion will be getting a new Mail Client. It even gotten a new icon, which have a metallic looks. Overview of the Mail.app seems to be very very similar to what we have seen on iPad’s mail client. They want to have a more generic looks and feel so users will feel very familiar when they use mail on iPad and Macs.

Mail.app will have a conversation view for emails. Yes, same look and feel of iPad’s mail.


Lines at WWDC 2011 [Video]

Guys from 9to5mac filmed the lines at WWDC 2011. Yes at this time, they are queuing over the night for WWDC. I don’t remember seeing queues outside WWDC 2010, so I’m sure developers can’t wait for iOS 5 and Lion to be out!
No confirmation from Apple what will iCloud cover, but I’m sure we see lots of syncing, not just Macs, but iOS devices.

We will be blogging live for WWDC 2011. Stay tuned with us. We also can’t wait for WWDC 2011 to come!


Magic on iPad 2 [Video]

Steve Jobs said iPad is a magical device, it really is. You don’t believe? Check out the below video by simon. Although he is not the first person who have created magic shows with iPad, but he really fully utilized iOS’s features.

Although the video is named Exclusive Preview on iOS 5, but it ain’t iOS 5. It is just illusions, and but he used a very good name that attracted lots of traffic! Nevertheless, his tricks are very well done, and it covers alot of iOS’s features like FaceTime, Apps rotations and more.

So check out his video and let me know what you think.


Steve Jobs will be at WWDC annoucing iCloud, iOS 5 and Lion on June 6

Steve Jobs announcing iCloud in WWDC 2011

Apple has just announced that their CEO, Steve Jobs will be taking the stage to talk about their new iCloud Service, iOS 5 and Mac OS Lion. Below is what they have sent to developers:

Apple® CEO Steve Jobs and a team of Apple executives will kick off the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote address on Monday, June 6 at 10:00 a.m. At the keynote, Apple will unveil its next generation software – Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS® X; iOS 5, the next version of Apple’s advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad®, iPhone® and iPod touch®; and iCloud®, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering.

Pretty packed WWDC 2011 for Apple. But why did Apple announce to the whole world about iCloud just a few days away from WWDC? Apple is always secretive and like to give us surprises. So are we going to get even more surprises from Apple?

Predication for Apple’s WWDC 2011

iCloud will be Apple’s newest cloud service, which might comprise of iTunes Cloud Streaming, iDisk(or a possible rename?), Cloud App Syncing, Monthly iTunes music Subscription. Apple has been building this massive Datacenter, which will most likely be supporting iCloud. So with such a huge cloud datacenter, it will not just be iTunes, I have a feeling it will be much more.

  • Monthly Music Subscription – Users will be able to pay a monthly fee and have music as all-you-can-listen package
  • iTunes Cloud Streaming – Users’ existing music will be automatically upload to the iTunes Cloud
  • iDisk fully integrated in Mac and iOS 5 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. So files can just be transfer via iCloud without going through 3rd party apps
  • App syncing – All Apps that users purchase will be stored in the cloud, but not only that. All the save games data, information will be stored in cloud thus be able to sync up throughout all the devices sign in with the same account

Above are just some prediction, and hopefully we get even more surprises from Apple! Stay Tuned and we will be reporting about WWDC 2011.


You might be able to make calls on jailbroken iPad 3G soon [Video]

Soon you might be able to make calls on your jailbroken iPad 3G, all thanks to iPhoneIslam. They have come out with a new hack called PhoneItiPad. It is reported that it might be in the Cydia App Store even before WWDC, which will be on 6 June 2011.

So how does it works? It works exactly like an iPhone, everything. So just imagine your iPhone now have a 9.7 inch screen and that’s what you will get with this hack. You can not only make phone calls, FaceTime, you can even SMS.  Pretty cool and I’m sure it comes in handy at times.

Check out the demo video of it:
