Today only, Readdle is offering their popular productivity app, Calendars+, free for the first time ever. A total savings of $7 off the retail price. Calendars+ simplifies your workflow “thanks to the unique interface you can move events simply with Drag & Drop, navigate quickly between dates, change event time, repeat schedule and reminders rapidly with custom keyboards.” As an added bonus, the beautifully flat design of this app will fit in well with iOS7.
Over 8,200 iTunes users rate this universal app an impressive 4 stars.

Law enforcement is offering a reward of up to $65,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the 2008 bombing of the United States Armed Forces recruiting station in Times Square in New York City.
Apple has released some info about the data that it is required to deliver to the government upon their requests.
Apple received “between 4,000 and 5,000 requests” relating to “between 9,000 and 10,000 accounts or devices” from federal, state, and local authorities.
It states that no one has direct access to their servers and included in their statement is that they cannot decrypt iMessage or Facetime data. Recently in April, iMessage made news when a leaked DEA memo showed that iMessage was uncrackable, having true end to end encryption.
Finally, it says it does not store user data on location, map searches or Siri requests “in any identifiable form.”
I was gonna write something up on dual booting, but why bother when this exists.
Office for iPhone released!
Microsoft has finally released its iOS version of Microsoft Office. There is only an iPhone version currently, and there is no free version. To gain access to the app, you must be an Office 365 subscriber. Once verified, you then gain access to creating a document, spreadsheet or presentation through the app. There is some simple editing of existing documents that are stored in your SkyDrive account, but some older type files created with Office 97-2003 will be prompted with an error (see screenshot above).
Once an iPad version comes out, this could actually be a good move on Microsoft’s part, as this will finally be a true mobile version of editing or creating Office documents, rather than use the 3rd party virtual machine apps that seem to be lousy at times.
Editing or creating documents on the iPhone is a little odd because of the size of the screen and small keyboard, but feels better than the Windows Phone version.
Seems timing was everything.
At WWDC, Apple announces their cloud solution for editing documents and syncing among all devices.
Apple is revving up to create it iWorks for the cloud as a much needed competitor to Google Docs, so it seems like Microsoft finally gave in and released the app that has been rumored for years before Apple could get their cloud solution launched in the Fall of this year.
Again, you must be an Office 365 Subscriber in order to use the app, which should push some money into Microsoft’s hands instead of others, so here is the link.
This is a great comparison of the current iPhone iOS, Windows Phone and the iOS 7.
I have used a Windows Phone and immediately felt iOS 7 had that feel. I really like the menu structures in iOS 7 and flow of everything, just do not like some of default Apple icons being so neon and abnormal looking. It is only beta 1, so things may be cleaned up, sharpened, modified, but that is the general feel for most people first experiencing iOS 7 in person.
Dynamic wallpaper seems amazing, but most likely a huge battery drain in the long run.
Yahoo! has been pulling out the big guns of late with Flickr, and while the true purpose for this acquisition is yet to be seen, we can only imagine Yahoo! must have new things in the pipeline. So, congratulations to the GhostBird team, but equally we’re sure a lot of you, like us, are sad to see their apps leave iOS. - iMore
Is this 2004? Myspace has released their first non beta version of their IOS App, and it features a free music streaming service, which features over 53 million songs.
Justin Timerblake, Chris and Tom Vanderhook acquired Myspace for $35 million in 2011. Since then they have revamped the site and had a public launch in January. The trio is attempting to bring more users to the newly designed Myspace, but at the moment, seems like a lost cause. People have so many options right now for social sharing, adding another one is just, well annoying.
So for $199, you can purchase the newly updated router with 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology, then add your own personal 3.5 hard drive to make it to an Airport Time Capsule. The 2TB Airport Time Capsule costs $299 from Apple, but you can easily make your own with a spare hard drive with this breakdown.
The new Airport Extreme is a complete redesign, standing only 6.6.inches tall and 3.5 inches wide, looks like an inflated AppleTV.
