Oh my goodness. Stop the updates. Seriously. Who can keep up? I barely had time to blow dry my hair.
And yet, all of these new iOS 6 features are making me do the HAppy Dance here. Groan – I know, pretty lame joke but aren’t you sad you didn’t think of it first?
What a day! After successfully downloading iOS 6 to my iPad and iPhone, I was also greeted with the task of updating a ton of my favourite Apps – like iMovie, iPhoto, iPages, iPages, iBank, Keynote and many, many more.
Now, to be honest, I haven’t had time to try all of them but suffice it to say that, at first glance, all appear to be super efficient and silky smooth.
Many of the Apps come with tons of new features to complement the sophistication of iOS 6. And, for Facebook lovers – all bzillion of you – there is Facebook integration everywhere you look. Just hold your finger on a photo or tap a share button in an App and watch the magic begin.
And let’s not forget Siri status updates for Facebook. Very, very nice.
And, when you visit the iOS App Store, check out the beauty of the new layout. It makes you want to shell out more money – everything old looks new again.
And the icing on the cake? Mountain Lion issued a huge update as well. Check it out! Is it long enough for you?
The only downside is that Maps is a bit of a mess. The navigation system works well enough, I suppose, but no 3D is happening at my end. I suspect that the rendering of 3D images is dependant on your location but still, all in all, I was disappointed.
Everything in time and circumstance. Geeks must be patient but sometimes it’s hard.
So, have you downloaded iOS 6 and updated your Apps? Is it all you were expecting? More? Less? Please share.
If all goes according to plan, this chart is “on the money” but who knows what Apple
will do at this point?
When I woke up this morning, the Software Update tab was missing in my Settings App. Then, it magically reappeared about 5 minutes later. I am sure it was just a case of the pre-update jitters, but let’s hope it’s still there come update time!
Once again, iOS 6 update will work with iPhone 3G/4/4S, iPod 4th generation and iPad 2/new iPad.
Naturally, if you are purchasing the iPhone 5 or new iPod Touch, these devices will already have iOS 6 in their system.
Do you have download fever? I sure do! Ninety minutes to go as of this writing!
WordPress.Com just issued a 3.1 update for the iPad and it’s a biggie. Considering that it came packed with features, it downloaded at a lightening pace.
After I had a quick look around and wrapped my head around the new format, the article yiu are now reading enjoyed the benefits of this new and much-needed update.
Here is what you will enjoy when you press the update button in the iOS iPad App store:
I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to be able to access my entire site and dashboard from within the App. No more logging in through Safari – what a drag that was!
Andthe new and improved Stats Page is excellent news as is the Quick Photo option that was only available in the iPhone App.
Great work, WordPress. This new update makes me want to sit and blog all weekend. With this new interface experience, blogging really can move at a brisk pace and certainly be more efficient.
Thank you to the fine folks at WordPress.Com for their tireless efforts in making the mobile blogging experience an easy and productive one.
