Apple Music app ported to Android, because you can’t listen to your favorite tunes otherwise

Apple is finally opening up to cross-platform commitments and, although it is just doing it to bait potential customers into joining “ the proverbial dark side”, it managed to bring Apple Music to the Google Play store.

Why do we need such a thing? Well, there are people out there who still like to keep an open mind to both OS and what they have to offer and they may have a Mac paired with an Android phone.

If you are familiar with Beats Music, you will definitely not have a hard time with Apple Music, the new and improved version. The app is streaming over 30 million songs and it also includes curated playlists. It also offers users access to music purchases via iTunes. That is an important feature because it marks the first time Apple has gone through the trouble of making an Android-specific way of getting iTunes music without having to go through a third-party. The app is even somewhat changed design-wise for the Android users.

 

Apple Music is in beta at the moment, but it will be official soon. It is already available on the Google Play Store, but you cannot watch music videos yet. You will also need a Mac or an iPhone to upgrade your subscription to a family plan if you want one. Some early users are reporting stability issues, and the mediocre star rating currently on the Google Play Store could be an attack from Android fans. The subscription will cost you $9.99 a month for one user and $14.9 per month for one family plan. In order to see if you want to commit to Apple Music, you can try the app for 30 days for free. Keep in mind that the app only works on Android 4.3 and above.

Apple releases Move to iOS and Android fans respond accordingly

Apple is back in the news again and this time it’s all about their first ever app. The company is known for being at least reticent when it comes to sharing with or supporting other platforms. It took them years and years to finally pair with Windows for the iTunes program, and some of the professional tools have never been seen anywhere except for the Apple hardware. Now everything will change as Apple is attempting to fish out some Android users as its own.

 

Apple move to ios

 

 

The first app coming from this American company is named Move to iOS and it has now reached the Play Store. What the app does is show you an opportunity you may not want to take advantage of. You can transfer contacts, SMS history and bookmarks, account information and photos to Apple’s hardware, an iPhone or an iPad. The app will not transfer other apps and in order for it to work you will need an Android device and an Apple device to be connected to a secure Wi Fi network.

Thing is, Move to iOS quickly became a joke for Android fanboys who rallied up and mock-reviewed the app, giving it many many many 1 star reviews. Suits Apple for trying to steal the competition so blatantly, if you ask me!

 

The app is free on the Play Store and you can use it, try it or just make fun of it if you feel like it.

Samsung Galaxy S6 to have a redesign haul – reportedly copying an iPhone feature

Samsung Galaxy S6 is rumored to be a whole new device, at least in terms of design, as the South-Korean manufacturer is investing in changing the looks of its prized flagship. Massively improved specs and a new look made with new materials are in order as the age of change is upon us… again.

One thing that Galaxy S6 will be “borrowing” from its sworn enemy – the iPhone – is the fingerprint scanner. The S5 swipe-like fingerprinter will be put aside by a more button-y sensor similar to that of Apple’s TouchID sensor that has touch-based recognition in the home button. This basically means that the next Galaxy will have a larger home button than its predecessors.

Do you think Samsung would actually take the competition’s technology and make it their own? Let us know in the comments below!

iPhones Bendgate situation cleared – see the most durable phones on the market

iPhones are always controversial devices because they are always targets to puns, mock commercials and slamming at their launch. This time the new iPhone 6 models are “victims” in a scandal entitled #Bendgate. Why it is named so, you ask? Because of a recent viral video where a guy is bending an iPhone 6 Plus with his bare hands and the device seems to work very well after that. Other photos of the same bending technology seem to show an iPhone 6s, but were not confirmed yet.

Although the media and social media exploded with memes and speculations regarding iPhone 6 Plus’ super bending powers, Consumerreports wanted to see just how bendable the device is and they even compared it with other devices, including Android flagships launched this year. The test implied an Instron machine, the new iPhones, the old iPhone 5 and the likes of LG G3, HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The phones were supported on two points on each end and the middle was struck with an increasing force.

 

iPhone 6 Plus

 

It appears that all phones are pretty solid and they started to break at 90 pounds of applied force (HTC M8), whereas the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cracked at 100 and 110 pounds respectively. The most resistant devices are the Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which splintered their screens and stopped functioning under the applied force.

During the test, LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 were the most durable because they recovered from each step up in force without marks, while still functioning. Below you can see some photos of the crushed phones, courtesy of ConsumerReports.org.

Apple Breaks Records in selling over 4 million devices in the first 24 hours after launch

It appears that every year, Apple manages to break yet another record. This time, the high-tech monolith managed to sell no less than four million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices in the timeframe of only 24 hours! The devices are preordered of course, since the official commercial launch of the new generation of Apple products will take place on Friday, September 19.

It seems that the pre-order hype will pose as a difficulty for a large number of customers as the pre-order supply is long exceeded. Most preorders will be taken care of in September and October, as Apple sources say. The striking sales come a few days after the annoying pre-order process which lead to the discovery that iPhone 6 Plus is in short supply. Apple rarely releases the number of pre-order devices but last year it reported selling over two million iPhone 5 devices in the first 24 hours after the launch and more than five million in the first weekend after the launch.
