Adobe TV now available for iOS Devices.

April 12, 2011 Leave a comment

If you’re one of those who learn from Adobe TV, a great source for tutorials and how-to’s on Adobe’s Products. Now you can get your learning on the move, Adobe is going to grace iOS devices with streaming video right from your mobile browser via tv.adobe.com.

This is great news for those that like to watch videos on their mobile device while still keeping their main display free for following along on, and it’s brilliant to see Adobe offering a feature that’s been their most frequently requested. Adobe were, however, quick to add that this has nothing to do with the ongoing Adobe Flash war the company is having with Apple.

 

In a post on the official Adobe blog, Bob Donlon said:

 

Why did we do this? Plain and simple, it is by far the #1 feature request
from our audience. And it was no small task.  I am really proud of what my team
has accomplished with this, and once I’ve gotten some sleep I’ll be sharing some
of the challenges we faced in pulling this off.
But, to be honest, this post has an additional intent, other than the
self-promotional aspect. I want to emphasize the following: we added iPad/iPhone
support because our customers asked for it. It’s that simple. There’s no subtext
related to Flash, which we continue to use to deliver our content onto
Flash-supported devices. We believe in delivering our content to all platforms
and devices that are meaningful to our audience. We also believe in using our
own tools, the best authoring tools on the planet, to create cross-platform,
cross-device experiences.

 

Whatever the motives are,  hats off to Adobe for bringing their content to iOS.

Download Windows 8 Wallpaper [Original]

April 4, 2011 Leave a comment

With Windows 8 getting closer to its beta testing phase, it was always inevitable that leaks would happen.

Today we’re treated to a picture of the new Windows 8 wallpaper.

Unsurprisingly, the new wallpaper is a slight variation on the existing Windows 7 design, but with more whimsy.

According to ZDNet’s sources, the current build of Windows 8 shows signs of the new Jupiter and TwinUI interface through a well-named DLL file – TWINUI.DLL.

Other than the new wallpaper and DLL, there isn’t much new to come out of the current build.

The new wallpaper can be downloaded, courtesy of DownloadSquad from the link given below:

Quickshot camera app takes your iphone photos straight to your dropbox folder

March 26, 2011 Leave a comment

If you upload a lot of photos from your iPhone to Dropbox, you know it’s kind of a pain. Opening the Dropbox app and then individually transferring each photo , and there’s no batch photo select option available. Quickshot with Dropbox for iOS offers a way to get the job done, though.
With Quickshot, you just select a photos folder in your Dropbox and start shooting. Your photos will be uploaded automatically. You don’t even have to save the shots to your phone’s camera roll if you don’t want to.
Quickshot doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles as a camera, but if you prefer to shoot with a fancier app — or use the iPhone’s built-in Camera app for HDR — you can still use Quickshot to select and batch-upload photos from your camera roll. Nice!
In the latest version, Quickshot added iPad 2 support and the ability to remove location tags from your photos before they’re uploaded.
By the way, Quickshot is not to be confused with another, unrelated app called “Quick Shot – All in One Camera,” so be careful if you’re searching for it in the app store.

BB Playbook will indeed support android apps

March 26, 2011 Leave a comment

Capture1

It’s been rumored for a few weeks now, but today RIM finally confirmed that its upcoming tablet PlayBook  will support apps built for Google Android OS.

Running the new QNX operating system, the PlayBook will support both apps from RIM’s own app store as well as those originally designed for Android.

According to RIM, Android developers will not be able to just run their apps straight off the bat however. Instead they will have to repackage, re-sign and submit their apps to the BlackBerry App World. Not a huge effort.

What this means is that the PlayBook has a potentially huge number of apps coming to the fledgling platform, effectively quashing one of the fears many have had for the tablet: a severe lack of apps.

 

Full RIM press release below:

RIM Expands Application Ecosystem for BlackBerry PlayBook

  • BlackBerry PlayBook to support BlackBerry Java and Android apps
  • Native C/C++ development support added, in addition to HTML5, Flash and AIR support
  • Support from leading game engines: Ideaworks Labs (AirPlay) and Unity Technologies (Unity 3)
  • BlackBerry PlayBook becomes a new market opportunity for all the developers who have already created over 25,000 BlackBerry Java apps and more than 200,000 Android apps

WATERLOO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – March 24, 2011) – Developers wanting to bring their new and existing apps to the highly anticipated BlackBerry® PlayBookTM tablet will soon have additional tools and options to enhance and expand their commercial opportunities. Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM) today announced plans to greatly expand the application ecosystem for the BlackBerry PlayBook. The BlackBerry PlayBook is scheduled to launch in the U.S. and Canada on April 19.

RIM will launch two optional "app players" that provide an application run-time environment for BlackBerry Java® apps and Android v2.3 apps. These new app players will allow users to download BlackBerry Java apps and Android apps from BlackBerry App World and run them on their BlackBerry PlayBook.

In addition, RIM will shortly release the native SDK for the BlackBerry PlayBook enabling C/C++ application development on the BlackBerry® Tablet OS. For game-specific developers, RIM is also announcing that it has gained support from two leading game development tooling companies, allowing developers to use the cross-platform game engines from Ideaworks Labs and Unity Technologies to bring their games to the BlackBerry PlayBook.

Support for BlackBerry Java and Android Apps

"The BlackBerry PlayBook is an amazing tablet. The power that we have embedded creates one of the most compelling app experiences available in a mobile computing device today," said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO at Research In Motion. "The upcoming addition of BlackBerry Java and Android apps for the BlackBerry PlayBook on BlackBerry App World will provide our users with an even greater choice of apps and will also showcase the versatility of the platform."

Developers currently building for the BlackBerry or Android platforms will be able to quickly and easily port their apps to run on the BlackBerry Tablet OS thanks to a high degree of API compatibility. The new optional app players will be available for download from BlackBerry App World and will be placed in a secure "sandbox" on the BlackBerry PlayBook where the BlackBerry Java or Android apps can be run.

Developers will simply repackage, code sign and submit their BlackBerry Java and Android apps to BlackBerry App World. Once approved, the apps will be distributed through BlackBerry App World, providing a new opportunity for many developers to reach BlackBerry PlayBook users. Users will be able to download both the app players and the BlackBerry Java and Android apps from BlackBerry App World.

The BlackBerry PlayBook and BlackBerry Tablet OS are built on the QNX® Neutrino® microkernel architecture with a 1GHz dual core processor and a leading OpenGL solution, which allows RIM to make this incredibly broad platform support possible.

BlackBerry PlayBook users and developers who are interested in seeing the new app players for BlackBerry Java and Android apps can see demos at BlackBerry World in Orlando, Florida (May 3 to 5, 2011) (www.blackberryworld.com).

BlackBerry Tablet OS Development Tools

The BlackBerry Tablet OS already supports an incredibly robust platform with support for Web development standard HTML5, through the BlackBerry® WebWorksTM SDK for Tablet OS, and Adobe® AIR®, through the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe AIR. The BlackBerry Tablet OS is built from the ground up to run WebKit and Adobe® Flash® as well, giving developers a fast and true Web experience to leverage.

RIM is also announcing today that the BlackBerry Tablet OS Native Development Kit (NDK), which is currently in limited alpha release, will go into open Beta by this summer and be demonstrated at BlackBerry World. The BlackBerry Tablet OS NDK will allow developers to build high-performance, multi-threaded, native C/C++ applications with industry standard GNU toolchains. Developers can create advanced 2D and 3D applications and special effects by leveraging programmable shaders available in hardware-accelerated OpenGL ES 2.0.

Other features of the BlackBerry Tablet OS NDK will allow developers to:

Take advantage of the QNX POSIX library support and C/C++ compliance for quick and easy application porting and for creating native extensions for both BlackBerry and Android applications
Easily integrate device events like gesture swipes and touch screen inputs
Integrate the BlackBerry Tablet OS environment into existing code management and build systems using industry standard Eclipse CDT (C/C++ Development Tools)
Leverage work done in standard C/C++ to make it easier to bring applications to the BlackBerry Tablet OS
Find and fix bugs quickly with provided debug and analysis tools
"The response to the BlackBerry PlayBook from the developer community has been exceptional. Our commitment to supporting HTML5 and Adobe AIR development has resonated and spurred developers to create fun and innovative applications for BlackBerry PlayBook users," said David Yach, Chief Technology Officer, Software at Research In Motion. "The upcoming BlackBerry Tablet OS NDK beta will add C/C++ tools to our repertoire and gives developers one of the broadest and deepest platforms to develop on."

Gaming Engines

Building on the power of the BlackBerry Tablet OS NDK, RIM is working with leading gaming and application development technology providers such as Ideaworks Labs and Unity Technologies to implement their native engines and application development platforms. Developers will be able to take advantage of these engines when building games and other applications for the BlackBerry PlayBook.

The Ideaworks Labs Airplay SDK is expected to include support for the BlackBerry Tablet OS soon, making it easy for publishers and developers to use their existing code to bring their games and apps to the BlackBerry PlayBook.

"Supporting a new OS can be a challenge for developers," says Alex Caccia, President of Ideaworks Labs, "however, integration of the BlackBerry Tablet OS with the Airplay SDK makes this a non-issue. We think t
his is a far-sighted move by RIM: the BlackBerry PlayBook is a great device for games and applications, and combining this with content distribution via BlackBerry App World brings an exciting new ecosystem for developers."

RIM has also been working closely with Unity Technologies, providers of the highly popular, multi-platform Unity development platform and Union, the firm’s games distribution service. Through Union, dozens of high-quality Unity-authored games are slated to make their way to BlackBerry App World for the BlackBerry Playbook.

"With a sharp focus on the multimedia experience, very powerful hardware, and fantastic games in the pipeline, the BlackBerry Playbook has all the right ingredients to be a mainstream hit," said Brett Seyler, GM of Union at Unity Technologies. "Through Union, Unity developers have an opportunity to reach a new audience and grow with another great new platform."

Availability

The new app players for the BlackBerry PlayBook are expected to be available from BlackBerry App World this summer. More information and demonstrations of the new app players will be shared at BlackBerry World. The BlackBerry Tablet OS NDK will be available in beta later this year and will also be showcased at BlackBerry World.

Greenp0ison update shown on Video!Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 on its the way!!!

January 22, 2011 Leave a comment

p0sixninja has just released a video update to show their progress on iOS 4.2.1 utethered jailbreak.

For those of you who don’t know, iPhone Dev-Team’s Redsn0w 0.9.7 can already jailbreak iOS 4.2.1 untethered but it has its share of limitations. Redsn0w 0.9.7 untethered jailbreak required SHSH blobs of 4.2b3 saved on Cydia. If you don’t have those SHSH files, you cant get the untethered jailbreak.

But if this new video of Chronic Dev Team is anything to go by, an untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.2.1 is coming real soon.

Samsung's Galaxy S will bring an 'evolution' at MWC in February

Samsung intends to bring a Galaxy S successor to MWC 2011 .The company’s turning up the hype machine with an update to its Samsung Unpacked website. There, for the pleasure of your eyes and the tickling of your imagination, Sammy has positioned its familiar super-selling Android smartphone alongside a not-too-cryptic message promising that "evolution is fate." We’re smelling a cute play on words here, similar to what LG did with its Revolution handset, potentially implying that the next Galaxy flagship will have LTE (Long Term Evolution) connectivity built in. That, along with the promised dual-core chip within, should easily outshine the Infuse 4G (which has HSPA+ and a single-core Hummingbird inside) recently announced for AT&T in the States. We’ll get the next dose of our teasing on February 1st, the site promises, before the full unveil in Barcelona on February 13th. Our hearts are all aflutter already.
