Before I ever owned an iOS device I knew how to use one. I instantly knew how to navigate my first iPhone from simply seeing my friends with their devices and by watching Apple commercials. Apple's easy to use UI and apps are what helped the iPhone and iPad become the most popular mobile devices available today. Unfortunately there is no sign of that innovation in Apple's newest app Clips. Like Facebook and others, Apple has tried to copy the huge success of Snapchat by releasing an easy to use video creation tool, and it's a bit confusing at first glance.
Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville is basically a remake of the original free-to-play zombie survival game from developer Sarah Northway. Being a remake means that Gangs of Deadsville is similar to the original but a lot bigger and badder. The iOS version features better graphics and more features, such as the ability to hunt for food, and being able assign survivors to defend individual buildings instead having them just guard the entire town. Fans of the original will definitely want to check out this version as it offers a deeper and more challenging experience. Gangs of Deadsville is more like Rebuild v.3.0 instead of a sequel.

Critics seem to love the game but user reviews are mixed only earning Midnight Star a 3-star rating on the App Store. There are a lot of positive comments about the graphics but the inability to control your character's movement and in-app purchases are earning the game a lot of negative reviews.
Instead of pumping out the normal misinformed next-generation iPhone rumors at a rapid pace, the Apple rumor mill has instead been focused on the iWatch and Apple's rumored suite of upcoming health apps. On Monday, Reuters threw gasoline of the fire by reporting that Apple is "building a team of senior medical technology executives" to work on a health and fitness platform modeled after the App Store.
Rueters claims Apple is under pressure to deliver on CEO Tim Cook's promise that the company will deliver a new product category sometime this year.
