Apple's next move when it comes to wearables has been a hot topic lately. The Apple Watch launched almost a year ago, and most recently received new nylon bands and a price cut to $299. Last week analyst Brian White made waves by claiming the Apple Watch 2 would be revealed at WWDC in June, sporting a 20-40 percent thinner case design. A new research note from KGI Securities' Ming-Chi Kuo throws cold water on this idea.
The first mobile title based on AMC's Fear the Walking Dead series is now available on the Apple App Store. The game is a "tactical runner" where players can flee across post-apocalyptic LA landscapes while trying to escape zombies. The game includes characters from the new show, over 40 weapons and the ability to run past your undead friends after they failed to escape.
Spring is here, and this means speculation surrounding WWDC is in the air. This time it's about the next generation Apple Watch. Also with spring comes some of our favorite fitness apps, with a top 5 from the running department. Apple fixes a Siri bug on the iPhone 6s, and Reddit launches its official app. Here are some Apple highlights from the week:
After years of serving as one of the Internet’s most popular social websites despite never having an official mobile app, Reddit now has an official mobile app.
The process of this app’s creation began several months ago when Reddit acquired the popular third-party Reddit browsing app Alien Blue. At the time they named it their official third-party browsing app, but as of today Alien Blue has been taken off of the app store and Reddit’s now official app has taken its place.
So how is it? Well anyone that used Alien Blue previously will notice that a lot of that app’s designs are still the foundation of this new, official app. The main philosophy here appears to be minimalism, which has always been Reddit’s philosophy in terms of layout.
After acquiring the Reddit client Alien Blue, the "front page of the internet" has released its own official iOS and Android apps. Both versions of the apps have been in beta for quite some time, but now all iOS users in the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia can download the final public version of Reddit: The Official App. Alien Blue will be pulled from the App Store, while the paid tablet version will remain until Reddit launches an iPad friendly version of its own app.
