Apple has entered the so-called phablet fray with the big screen iPhone 6 Plus (5.5-inch screen) and the more “standard” size smartphone model iPhone 6 with a 4.7-inch display.  

For Apple fans, your whole world probably stopped when Cupertino finally released not one, but two new iPhones – the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus – and the new Apple Watch.

The new iPhones are Apple’s first foray into bigger screen smartphones. The iPhone 6 Plus in particular falls into the so-called “phablet” category popularized by ... Continue reading >>

Apperian has released a new version of its Apperian Enterprise App Store designed to bring many of the user-friendly features of consumer app stores to business users and others in large organizations. 

The latest incarnation of the Apperian Enterprise App Store includes new capabilities such as app ratings, featured apps and a user-friendly redesign that is native to each type of device.

While many companies have implemented a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policy that lets employees use their own devices at work, letting them use any and all consumer apps on corporate networks is another story. The idea behind an enterprise app store is to give mobile device users a range of secure... Continue reading >>

Sales of branded tablets like the iPad  stumbled the past year and a new report says other vendors will boost the overall market.

The boom years of double-digit growth for Apple’s iPad look to be coming to an end. Perhaps not a surprise in a maturing market that’s seen new competitors eat away at the iPad's still leading market share. 

Market research firm ABI Research says it expects branded tablet shipments to grow “at a disappointing 2.5%” in 2014.

But Apple is expected to release new iPads later this month and, depending on the re... Continue reading >>

Report details prices most smartphone & tablet owners are willing to pay for apps http://tabtimes.com/feature/ittech-apps/2014/09/24/report-details-prices-most-smartphone-tablet-owners-are-willing-pay Wed, 24 Sep 2014 13:22:03 -0400 http://tabtimes.com/node/15349 David Needle

Smartphone and tablet users love apps, especially when they’re free.

A new online survey by Harris Poll found that while some smartphone and tablet owners are downloading 30 or more apps for their devices, fewer than half (43%) actually pay for them.

The findings showed plenty of interest in apps. For example, 38% of smartphone/tablets owners said they’d downloaded 20 or more apps to their current device and 17% said they were frequent buyers who have downloaded more than 30 apps onto their current smartphones and/or tablets.

The study, ... Continue reading >>

Who loves you baby? When it comes to free storage, Microsoft is giving iPad and iPhone users a much better deal than Apple – at least for the rest of September. 

For a limited time, Microsoft announced it’s doubling the amount of free storage it offers via its OneDrive cloud storage service.

Apple’s release of new iPhones included an update to the operating system, iOS 8, that requires more storage. In some cases, users have had to delete photos and apps to make iOS 8 work.

Not to worry, Apple, er, Microsoft to the rescue.

“… we’ve been listening to the commentary about storage on the new iPhones ... Continue reading >>
