According to a report via The Next Web, Apple has reportedly acquired the photo and video sharing app Color. The latter first launched last March and was underwhelming after much media hype and garnering $41 million in funding: Color Labs, the photo-and-video-sharing social network that received much criticism over its pre-launch $41 million funding round,...Apple Reportedly Acquires Photo and Video Sharing App Color [Rumour] is a post from: iPhone in Canada Blog - Canada's #1 iPhone Resource

If you or your kids love SpongeBob SquarePants, you will likely love this. For two minutes. Before you realise you have better things to do.
This app presents you with SpongeBob in an underwater scene, and you can do pretty much whatever you like to him; touch his mouth to make him speak a limited number of phrases, touch his eyes to make him wink, and touch the background to create bubbles that he stares at. If you tilt the iPhone, he slides with Gary the snail to one side, and you can move the device up sharply to make him jump. You can even stretch him and

make him dance. It’s all very amusing, but despite its great use of the ‘Phone’s features, it certainly won’t keep you or your kids transfixed for more than a few minutes. If you really love the character, though, or have a very young child in mind, it’s a fun and quirky few minutes of whimsical, watery entertainment that probably delivers just about enough to justify the price, but it does little more than that and won’t make for any converts.

It is now official, Apple has sent out media invites for an event they are going to host on the 23rd of October. This event will be held in the California Theatre, San Jose. It is expected that Apple is going to announce their iPad Mini, a 13-inch MacBook Pro with retina display, a line up of iMacs and a brand new Mac mini.






We have been giving you all the reports and theories so far surrounding Apple’s iPad Mini and while many may have thought this was just a rumor, Apple have now announced a special event. Usually Apple’s keynotes are he

ld at the Yerba Buena Centre for the Arts in San Francisco but this event is going to be held at the California Theatre in San Jose and this is the first official indication that the new iPad Mini will indeed be launching this month.

The iPad mini is expected to have a 7.85 inch display and we have also learned that there could be as many as twelve different configurations such as a Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G LTE offering in each of the 8, 16, 32 and 64GB storage capacities. There have over the past couple of months been various leaks of internal parts as well as a bunch of mock-ups which have given up plenty to speculate about. Apple are very good at covering things up though so don’t be surprised if the new smaller iPad doesn’t look anything like what we may have presumed.

When it comes to pricing, there have been speculations that it will cost between $249 and $299. This has yet to be confirmed and we will have to wait for the official announcement from Apple to see if the rumors were right. Apple will be holding a special event next Tuesday and everyone here is really excited about the prospect of the iPad mini finally making an appearance. We will keep you updated and bring you all the news as it transpires.

I’ve mentioned a number of great Objective-C libraries to make things quicker and easier.
Today I came across an Objective-C library ObjectiveCRuntimeAdditions  that adds a couple of terrific additions to the Objective-C language.
The first addition is the ability to swizzle a method without the need to create a category – the readme states:
If you wanted to swizzle a method before, you would have to declare a category on a class (usually resulting in two extra files).
CTObjectiveCRuntimeAdditions introduces a new method
void class_swizzleSelectorWithBlock(
Read More
Class class, SEL originalSelector, SEL unusedSelector, id block);
 which takes the class, the selector you want to swizzle, an unused selector in which the previous implementation will be stored and a block that will be called instead of the original implementation.
The second addition allows you to get detailed runtime information from your blocks.<
You can find CTObjectiveCRuntimeAdditions on Github here.
A couple of very useful additions.

Many people I’ve talked to are anxious to try out the new features Apple has brought to OS X Mountain Lion. Unfortunately, Apple has only made the beta of Mountain Lion available to registered developers. In this video, I’ll show you how you can get the biggest features of Mountain Lion today, using only existing apps.

It isn’t often that you can liken a Japanese TV programme to a sideways-scrolling monster truck game, but while racing the green shadow car over chaotic scenery, the obstacle course with the wrecking ball from Takeshi’s Castle comes to mind. Monster Trucks Nitro 2 takes the well worn and quite tedious premise of sideways-scrolling scenery with automatic acceleration and some obstacles to get over and turns it into a carnage-strewn, gravity-defying race against time. The aim of the game is to rotate the truck to get maximum lift on jumps and flips where possible to gain nitro

boosts, and get the tyres back on the ground to keep the speed up — as shown by the green shadow car. Best of all, the trucks are a shiny 3D, and the chaos caused during the race is a visual feast.

In the past I’ve mentioned a great library that can be used to create elegant popup style modal panels.
Recently I received the submission of an interesting component that allows you to create partial modal views that cover the bottom of the screen and is styled after the National Geographic parks guide app.
The concept is similar to a UIAlertView however allows much more customization as you can insert any UIView elements within the model view and rather than just dim the screen the screen contents are shrunk, and shifted into the background with an accompanying animatio

n.
Here’s a set of images from the Github page demonstrating how similar the components results are to the modal views in the National Geographic app:


The component is KNSemiModalViewController from Kent Nguyen.
You can find the component on Github here and read Kent’s writeup about the component on his site here.
You can find the National Geographic National Parks App on iTunes here.
The different animations and little touches with this component give it a very memorable effect.
