Bedtime is a beautifully designed new feature of the Clock app meant to help you keep and monitor your sleep schedule. The best aspect of it, besides its simplicity, is that it has an independent volume setting and an array of wakeup sounds with soothing melodies that gradually get louder, easing you out of sleep rather than shocking your system with a harsh alarm. When you use it for the first time you simply tell it when you get up and how many hours you like to sleep, then you can select which days of the week you want it applied to.
While many of us install iOS public betas just to use all of the new features before the official launch, Apple's Beta Program is intended to help them discover and fix issues with the new operating system. Putting it in the public's hands is a powerful tool to help identify issues. If you have installed the public beta (if you haven't here's how) and are noticing bugs that should be reported, or just want to make suggestions, there is a Feedback app that will allow you to do so. Here's how to use it:
The roguelike dungeon crawling genre has a rabid fan base who are always eagerly looking for new titles to play on their computer and mobile devices. This is why Guild of Dungeoneering was a highly anticipated App Store release for the iPad. Even though the game has been available on Steam for over a year, the mobile version didn't make its debut until PAX South in March 2016. The card-based dungeon crawler has finally been released for iOS devices this week, and it is a universal app, even though it was originally thought to be a tablet-only title.
Guild of Dungeoneering is a turn-based RPG card game with a twist. Instead of just controlling the game's hero, players must build their own dungeon around the hero and coax them through the adventure. Players can build their dungeon and fill it with monsters, loot and traps by playing specific cards from their Guild decks. The goal of the game it to complete dungeon crawls to gain experience and money to improve your Guild and attract better classes of adventurer. Players can also earn new cards and unlock more rooms and equipment as they play the game.
Gaming on the Apple Watch never really took off like some people originally predicted that it would after the wearable device was launched in 2015, but Final Fantasy creator Square Enix plans to change that with a new title called, Cosmos Rings. The teaser website for the upcoming game is very vague, only listing the title, genre (RPG) and platform (Apple Watch). Andrew Hoyle from CNET thinks Cosmos Rings will be some kind of GPS-based game like Pokémon Go, and Touch Arcade believes it is meant to be a Chaos Rings' spin-off.
Apple has released a slew of firmware updates this week, including tvOS 9.2.2 for the Apple TV. While the 9.2.2 update does not include any of the new features that are coming with tvOS 10 this fall, the update is worth installing. Over the past two months, Apple has worked on many bug fixes, performance improvements, and security enhancements for the fourth-generation Apple TV.
