Amazon rolled out a new update yesterday for their audiobook app for iOS which added a handful of new features designed to improve the discovery and playback experience as well as a much-needed redesign.
The audible app now features a new discover section which offers a bevy of titles you might want to buy and listen to, and Audible has also improved the search function, enabling listeners to get more info on their next audiobook. Continue reading
The Dropbox app for iPad and iPhone is playing catch up with its Android counterpart this morning.
A new update has been rolled out to the app which adds the document previews and search features which were added to the Android app a couple weeks ago. The app also no supports larger animated Gifs (which is great because we all know this is the real reason we have iPads). Continue reading
Acer might not be the biggest tablet maker but they are a well known name with an established reputation for quality.
Alas, sometimes Acer’s generally adequate tablets miss the mark.
The Iconia A1-830 is a mid-grade 8″ tablet which launched in April 2014. I didn’t get a chance to review it until July and August, and now that I’ve spent some time with it I am glad that I didn’t buy it myself. This is a rather disappointing tablet that actually made the cheaper Hisense Sero 8 look good. Continue reading
The launch date for the next iPad is still the stuff of rumors but one source says that the new hardware is already making its way down the assembly line.
Bloomberg reported this morning that we’re going to see a couple new iPads this fall: Continue reading

Oyster for iOS v1.8 adds unnamed bug fixes, major syncing improvements, and new color and personalization options – or so the changelog says; the app requires iOS 7 (which I don’t have). Continue reading
A new round of rumors are circulating today concerning Apple’s long-rumored iWatch and 12.9″ iPad.

Apple is widely expected to release a new iPad Air this fall, and if this video is to be believed we are in for a treat.
Youtube user TLDToday got his hands on what he says is a dummy iPad Air 2. He got it via Sonny Dickson, and while we don’t know how Sonny got his hands on it the guy has generally been a good source of Apple leaks in the past. Continue reading
Rumors circulated last year that Apple was working on a larger iPad, possibly with either a 12.9″ or a 13.3″ screen, but it wasn’t until today that any real proof existed to show that the rumors were real.
A new photo was posted to Weibo earlier today which appears to show an aluminum mold carved in the shape of a larger iPad.

According to my source, if it is real then this would likely be used to protective shells for the iPad Maxi. Continue reading
