  • iOS 5 additions force some developers to think different

    Posted June 9, 2011 - 9:40 am

    It’s pretty much a given that with each major update to Mac OS X or iOS, Apple will add to the OS features previously provided by third-party developers. These are often features that were in such demand that others had stepped in to provide them, but, eventually, Apple saw their utility and decided they were things that should be a part of the OS (or its built-in apps). Whatever the case may be, each year, select developers come away from an Apple keynote or press release rethinking their future business plans.

  • First look: iOS 5 notifications

    Posted June 7, 2011 - 11:28 am

    One of the biggest changes in Apple's iOS 5, unveiled Monday, is a welcome overhaul to the iOS's relatively simple notification system. Right now, new alerts pop up in a modal dialog box that interrupts whatever you're doing. If you receive multiple alerts while your device is locked, you have to dismiss each one of them separately, but you can only see one alert per app; if you receive five text messages, you’ll only be alerted to one. If you unlock your phone quickly before you read an alert, and only notice at the end of your swipe, you're out of luck. And sometimes, swiping to unlock your phone just as a notification appeared means that you’ll unintentionally launch the alerting app.

    Posted June 6, 2011 - 8:35 pm
