Physical mockup of iPhone 5.5" compared to iPhone 5s

Waaaaayyy too big, for my taste ... but I can’t blame Apple for entering this market, that’d be leaving money on the table.

Apple testing iPhone 6 with 1704 x 960 screen resolution

I do wish they’d just get to 1920x1080 and be done with it, especially if they really are enlarging the screen.

Welcome to the new!

I like the redesign, but unless I am missing something, I do not see a way to see older articles. The front page shows about 10 articles only. If I go to the archives, then I get a page navigation controls where I can go back and see older articles. Does one really need to go to the archives just to see yesterdays’s posts?

Apple to raise trade-in values for iPhone 4/4S

I upgraded to a 5C two weeks ago and they offered me $199 for my 4S. I said no thanks, cause I wanted to check eBay pricing, but they told me to bring it back any time for $199.

iLounge Game Spotlight: Leo's Fortune

This game is beautiful,in both looks and gameplay.The concept of the game is to get through each level in as quick a time as possible.And with continued play,you begin to understand the reason for the floaty feel to Leo.with precise timing it is possible to totally avoid some of the puzzles and traps,thus resulting in faster times.This gives the game that all important one of the levels I played,I looked at the leaderboards online,and realised,what i thought was a flawless run by my standards,was actually,no where near the fastest times done by other players.So I went back to that level,and changed the places I jumped,and the difference this made,was remarkable.I was soon at the top of the leaderboards,on a lot of the levels.This is what I play games for,the thrill of the chase.So if you like a challenging well constructed platformer,that plays like a gamers dream,you should get this game.

iLounge Game Spotlight: Leo's Fortune

This game is certainly beautifu, one of the prettiest I have ever seen for iOS.  The killer is as you say, the “floatiness” of the character.  I had to give up on the game when that floatiness made it completely impossible for me to do one of the levels.  The slightest touch or hovering over the screen would send the character careening into spikes with no hope of recovery.  This, plus the fact that some levels must ideally done in one compete motion ruins the gameplay for me at times.  The game is so beautiful and well-constructed you want to slow down or stop and enjoy it, but you can’t.  This is a flaw in a lot of platform games, not just this one.

Welcome to the new!

Thanks for the feedback, folks. There are still a number of tweaks we’re making, and bringing back the dates on the main column is definitely on that list, as well as working out the other bugs.

Welcome to the new!

On the main iLounge page, the dates of articles no longer appear underneath the clickable article headline.  Please consider restoring these dates. 

Otherwise, the new layout is great, and I really appreciate the careful thought that went into the website redesign.  I visit iLounge often, and the new site design provides an even nicer experience.

Welcome to the new!

Well done!  I like the new layout, and navigating the site seems much snappier now. (now, if you could just get the human verification process for adding comments working smoothly ...)

Apple offers to replace faulty iPhone 5 sleep buttons

Just took mine back to a Apple Store.  If it is under APPLECARE you get a new phone on the spot.  Not under Warr, it gets sent out.

Apps: Bonsai Slice, Bounsy, IMDb 4.2 + The Weather Channel 6.0

The Weather Channel app is terrible, just like the new AccuWeather app.

Siri coming to Apple TV?

Use your phone or iPad and you’ll have one built in.

Siri coming to Apple TV?

A GPS locator for the remote would be more useful with my children.

Apps: 1Password 4.5, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Health Mate 2.0 + WeMo 1.5.1

“It’s not a bad game, but with a bit of extra polish, it could have been a great one.”

That pretty much sums up every Gameloft game.

Apps: Baby Bundle, Breeze, Helpouts + iOOTP Baseball 2014

I agree with Bruce.

Apps: Baby Bundle, Breeze, Helpouts + iOOTP Baseball 2014

“The only thing you don’t get to do is actually play the game, as iOOTP 14 is strictly a simulation.”  Say what?  I hate to break this to you, but manipulating joysticks and hitting “swing” buttons is not actually playing the game either: RBI Baseball 14 is also a simulator.  In iOOTP, you get to play the game as a manager (if you want).  Is this the time to change pitchers?  Should I pitch to this guy or pitch around him?  Steal?  Bunt?  Hit and run?  Bring in defensive players with a late lead?  Guard the lines in the late innings?  iOOTP can put you in the game, and most of its fans would argue it puts you MORE in the game than the reaction time/joystick contests.

iOS 8: Healthbook as aggregator, faster camera speed

Gimmick? Maybe.  USA-only?  Not sure how Healthbook could be beneficial to just us yanks.  But I agree that a lot of these iOS bells ‘n whistles are crud that would be nice to be able to delete, rather than moving to the last available screen.

iWatch poll ends, first accessory poll begins

Seems that some of us might need a “None of the above” choice, if tracking the relative volume of people who don’t buy any accessories at all, or nothing other than a case.

iOS 8: Healthbook as aggregator, faster camera speed

Call me a cynic, but isn’t this just another USA-only gimmick App, that will never be used, like Passbook, Stocks and NewsStand - something the everyone just wants to delete but can’t?

Nest Protect subject to safety issue, sales halted

The Nest Wave feature was the one feature that convinced me to buy the product. I have two of them. If the wave to stop feature is not restored quickly, I will be asking Nest for my money back. I can use other resources to monitor my house remotely, but no one likes digging out a broom to disable an alarm that is accidentally triggered.

This is strike two. The first strike was selling to Google. If there is a strike three, I will replace my Nest thermostat and fire alarms, and they will be “outta here.”

iLounge Game Spotlight: Sometimes You Die

Great review. You don’t have to go through the whole game to get to the hidden levels, just one room back.

Apple releases iOS 7.1

They have still not fixed the bug in Calendar when you add an event and create two alarms and the alarms switch between the two intervals. It has been there since iOS 6.X.

iTunes Radio could be standalone app in iOS 8

Oh please, iTunes Radio works perfectly right now, don’t mess it up!  When podcasts were still handled within iTunes and the music app on iPhones, they worked perfectly.  With the creation of the Podcasts app, listening, syncing, using Airplay, all have been a complete train wreck ever since.  We don’t need the same thing to happen to iTunes Radio.
