Kinetik – Discover And Share Apps For iPhone, iPad Or iPod Touch



iOS has the privilege of having the biggest app collection among all mobile platforms. App Store is regarded as the hub for launching most new ideas and innovations. This accounts for the staggering 450,000+ apps available for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users. But every coin has two sides. There is also a drawback to this kind of variety available in the App Store. For one thing, you might get lost in the sea of apps while trying to find something you really need, or a really good new app could fail to make its mark because of the sheer number of competitors present in the Store. Kinetik is a friend to all such apps as, in addition to keeping you upraised with apps that are currently hot in the market, it introduces you to apps that your friends find handy.

Much like App Flow for Windows Phone 7, Kinetik is an app discovery tool but with more focus on social network integration (Twitter in particular). That’s a huge plus, as you don’t need to sign up for a new account specifically for Kinetic. The app is so useful that even before signing in to your Twitter account, the home screen provides you with an attractive array of icons telling you which apps are currently trending among users.

Though, the real fun starts when you have connected the app with your Twitter account.  Immediately, you will start seeing updates from your friends regarding apps they have tweeted about recently. You can think of Kinetik as an app discovery extension of Twitter. It allows you to Share any app you like, and you can also comment on your friends’ shares. In the Settings menu of the app, you can chose to post all your shares to Facebook too.

Trending AppsApp Description

Kinetik lets you browse shared apps based on their categories. The categories which are available are pretty much the same as the ones in App Store. As soon as you run across something you like, simply hit the red Share button in the bottom bar and all your Twitter friends will know which app you’re currently in love with these days. Kinetik also offers you the option of adding a description (or your thoughts) about the app before you share it.

Browsing criteria include apps shared by your friends, apps trending in Kinetic these days, or you can choose to follow any person you think is tech-savvy enough to keep your app-etite satisfied.

Kinetic is a free app and can be downloaded from the link provided below.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 

Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

Microsoft acquires iPhone email app Acompli

After accidentally announcing it a little early, Microsoft is officially confirming it has acquired email startup Acompli. The surprise acquisition means Microsoft is picking up a powerful email client for iPhone and Android in another move that further cements CEO Satya Nadella’s focus on cross-platform technologies. The Verge’s Casey Newton called Acompl "the Outlook for iPhone that Microsoft hasn’t yet built," and it seems Microsoft was equally impressed with the powerhouse email app. "We’re excited about what’s possible as we build on the app’s success and bring it together with work currently in progress by the Outlook team," the company said in a statement. "Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…
