New USB jack shown, faster charging and reversible

When it comes to powering our devices, micro USB is the current standard for Android. The issue (which we’re reminded of when toying with the new HTC One) is that the cable and plug are directional. Unlike the Lightning cable found on iOS devices, we have to angle the charging cable on our Android devices just right. A new standard aims to end that, though, as the USB Implementers Forum is introducing USB 3.1.


Reversible in design, the new USB jack is also universal, and meant for all devices from computers to smartphones. The concept is really easy to grasp, too: it’s like a Lightning cable turned inside out. Rather than have the connectors on the outside, it keeps them facing inward, but rounds the shape of the jack evenly. No more fumbling to get a plug oriented correctly, and no wondering if we even have the right cable with us on trips.

The new cable should be completed in July of this year, with the USB IF saying “We could see products with the new cable by end of year”. The new iteration of USB has a higher data transfer, and is designed to be slipped in and out of ports 10,000 times. The new jack could see success as early as next year, with expectations being that computers will have both USB ports on their devices.

With smartphones, the waters are a little trickier to navigate. The USB 3.1 is a touch larger than the standard micro USB, and the continued push for more svelte design counteracts that. Come 2015, we should know if the new USB standard will make a home on mobile devices.

Jack Jones for iPad

Manchester, United Kingdom – Red Magpie Apps today is proud to introduce Jack Jones 1.0 for iPad. Jack Jones is a unique iPad app specifically designed for under 5 year olds.

Join Jack Jones on a magical animal quest to find as many new friends as he can. Meet Monty the three eyed bat, help a fox find his tail, discover a lost dinosaur egg and navigate a forest spirit through a rabbit’s burrow!

This is an adventure that you and your little ones don’t want to miss.

Instead of following the trends for flat work, we used 3d rendered artwork in an attempt to inspire young creative minds with unique visuals that are a break from the norm.

The app is great for schools as it works on it’s own as a fun story with no real pressure on the children to get things correct in order to advance. It’s a gentle way of improving their observational skills without them feeling like it’s work. We also used an educational font that is designed to help aid the process of recognizing letter shapes for early years children.

Features/key points:
* Designed to train observational skills with simple visual challenges throughout the story
* Fun mini games

* Font designed specifically for early years to aid recognition of letter shapes
* There’s no links, no adverts, and no in app purchases
