Reported Images Of Windows 8 App Store Leak.

  • April 11, 2011 10:38 am


The recurring discussion behind a “Windows 8 App Store” were re-ignited this morning as claimed screenshots of said storefront were once again leaked. The overall presentation looks rather nice, if a bit plain. Of course, we won’t know for sure until the beta of said store (Microsoft “App Mall”) is released sometime this year if rumors are to be believed.

With apps the #1 ticket to success it seems, software and hardware companies alike are racing to capitalize on the current “fad”. At least in Microsoft’s case, they’re trying to build everything — Xbox, Windows Phone 7, and Windows OS — underneath one code umbrella and app store.

While the screenshot above cannot be confirmed as real or fake at this point, it paints an interesting picture for Windows 8 (rumored for release in late 2012) and possibly even Windows 7 as the App Mall could be released ahead of the next version of Windows.

Hate The New Trends Bar In Twitter 3.3 For iOS? Remove It With Twizzler!

  • March 4, 2011 8:39 am


Love Twitter for iOS but hate the new “Trends” bar that sits at the top of your timeline? You’re not alone. In fact, it’s annoying enough for some people to take matters into their own hands in creating an app solely to remove it. Said app goes by the name “Twizzler” and can be found in the Cydia app store under the BigBoss repo free of charge.

Dislike the trends bar enough to jailbreak just for Twizzler?

  • February 4, 2011 7:30 am

With over 300,000 apps and no decent way to filter through search results means a long, painful process if you’re looking for anything particular. Well, it was a painful process. Apple has quietly updated the App Store to include new search filters/categories that will make all of our lives easier, and reduce the amount of time wasted needlessly scrolling. Search categories include:

  • Category
  • Customer Rating
  • Device
  • Price
  • Release Date
