The store is currently selling the 16GB iPad Air with Wi-Fi for $479 – which is already a saving of $20 over Apple’s own price – but has confirmed that Black Friday buyers splashing out on Apple’s latest tablet will also get a $100 store gift card.
This deal isn’t just for iPad Air buyers though; Target promises to give a $75 gift card to iPad mini buyers and $50 and $30 cards to those picking up a fifth-generation iPod Touch or iPhone 5S respectively.
Other notable deals over the Black Friday period from the retailer include a $60 pack of iTunes gift cards for $50 as well as $10 off Apple TV models.
Interested parties will need to [...]
Now with auto upload you can really take advantage of Flickr’s 1 TB of free storage. The photos are uploaded in the background, and in full resolution. The update also included some bug fixes for Google sign-in, and an auto straighten tool which lets you use the included photo editor to straighten photos in the app.
The new version of the Flickr app is available on iTunes, but there is still no native iPad version.
You might often use YouTube or perhaps TED for viewing videos on the iPad, but neither really fit the bill if you’re looking to quickly learn about everyday topics. YouTube is quantity over quality and TED is focused more on the education sector.
Aiming to fill that void is an interesting new iPad app, called Curious (free, iTunes). Coming from the same folks at Curious.com who specialize in online learning, the app lets users choose from hundreds of thousands of lessons from experts around the globe.
Topics include arts and crafts, cooking, DIY, home and garden, music, software, photography and foreign [...]
The deal, first reported by VentureBeat, is further proof of consolidation in the social TV space, but it also goes to show that Apple is serious about TV.
Matcha.tv had created an iPad app to discover movies and TV show episodes on Netflix, iTunes and Amazon, using data from social networks to recommend new titles to watch.
Apple is rumored to be working on an online-only pay TV service, which presumably would look very different from traditional cable.
No on version 4.1, the app offers up “general improvements to call quality and stability” as well as the HD video calling feature for iPad 4 users.
The bad news is that while first, second and third generation iPad users will be able to upgrade to the app (free, iTunes), they will still have to make do with standard-definition video calls.
That is because only the latest iPad comes with a 1.2MP HD front-facing camera, while the iPad 3 and 2 both come with a 0.3MP standard definition snapper.
The developer has introduced the discount, which only runs through Friday 16 August, because an earlier version of the app is about the stop working properly.
1Password 3 for iOS has previously offered Dropbox synchronization so that users can access their passwords on 1Password from any computer or iOS device.
However, the app runs on an older version of Dropbox’s API and the cloud storage provider plans to shut down that particular version on September 1, meaning that users of the app will be unable to sync their data to their Dropbox account.
As a result, AgileBits is hoping to persuade existing 1Password 3 users (note: 1Password 4 is a standalone app [...]
Groupon, which acquired Breadcrumb in May of last year, only tweaked the iPad app in May but has said that this latest upgrade is based on feedback from thousands of its users.
Some of the more notable changes allow business to identify their type of business, after which they will be able to choose from a selection of recommended menus and even tailor these to their own demands. So for example, a café could list its selection of coffees and prices.
The app (free, iTunes) also now boasts an offline mode for merchants to take payments when away from an Internet connection, while deeper integration with Groupon deals means merchants can link directly to Groupon to [...]
In the age of closed ecosystems, it is perhaps surprising to see the one supposedly “open” vendor – Google – quietly trying to lock you into its own services.
That is certainly the case with Google Hangouts, a videoconferencing feature which launched alongside the Google + social network back in the early stages of 2012. The iPad app (free, iTunes), however, only launched in May.
The service is reliant on you having both a Google+ account and a Gmail account. Providing you have both, setting up Google Hangouts on your iPad is pretty straightforward.
You are required to sign in and authenticate with Google, and you’re also be asked to [...]
Duolingo launched one year ago and now has five million users across web, iOS and Android smartphones.
Previously only available for iPhone, the iOS app adds iPad support (free, iTunes) with version 2.0 and allows users to translate text into another language, and set what kind of phrases they wish to learn – like just the basics or popular food items.
Furthermore, users can see how their learning compares to other users and see a whole host of other stats – including how many new words they have learned and acquired ‘skill points’.
