Editor’s desk: Escape from New York!

I did it, I escaped from New York! After spending three of the remaining four weeks on the temporary Mobile Nations HQ in NYC, trying my best to get all of the #TM13 prep work done, as well as keeping up with the daily iMore grind of news, views, and podcasts. Luckily, in addition to our already rock-solid (and rock-star!) cast, we had Peter Cohen join us full-time last week, and Richard Devine begins full-time this week. The timing couldn’t be any better, because, frankly, it’s going to be one hell of a summer. next Sunday I’m off again, this time to Orlando to help Kevin Michaluk and crew produce CrackBerry Live from the show floor of BlackBerry Live. Yeah, best Nixon could go to China…
After that, I’ll be lower back for a couple of weeks, and then I’ll be returning briefly to New York City and then on to WWDC 2013, which should give all of us our first look at iOS 7 and OS X 10.9 .
 
In the mean time, here’re the bullet points:

This whole “Tim Cook may be fired” meme is the dumbest Apple thing I’ve seen in the long history of dumb Apple things. I don’t care who you are, what degree you have, or who pays your salary, if you’re writing “Tim Cook should be fired” you’re either stupid, corrupt, or stupidly corrupt, and you should be fired by any editor with any ounce of self-respect left. Sadly, that’s fewer and farther between these days. Makes me wonder who’s agenda those articles are in reality servicing?

I shot a lot with my DSLR over the last couple of weeks, and every time I lament the lack of cellular instant and all the terrific processing and sharing apps i have on my iPhone.

Printer Pro for iPhone by Readdle gets updated, goes free for extremely limited time!

[#protected_0#]

Readdle’s Printer Pro for iPhone is usually .99 but right now you can grab it absolutely free for the iPhone. I’m not sure exactly how long the sale lasts — iTunes says 24hrs, Twitter says 48hrs! — but act fast because either way, it won’t last long.

Printer Pro for iPhone does more than just AirPrint. Essentially turns the iOS “Open in…” dialog into a print dialog so as long as you have a printer attached to your network somewhere, there’s a good chance you can turn the file on your screen into paper in your hand with just a few taps, with control over preview, range, layout, scale, and more.

If you like it, you can also get the iPad version for just .99 as a way of saying thanks to the fine folks at Readdle!

Rumor: HTC M7 heading to Verizon, AT&T and Sprint, but not T-Mobile

Despite the much awaited launch of the Sony Xperia Z happening soon and rumors about Samsung’s Galaxy S4 increasing in intensity, another upcoming top-tier Android phone appears to be the star of the most headlines these days.
 
We’re talking about HTC’s M7, the enormous guy that’s been rendered a bunch of times in the past week and that’s had numerous specs and details spilled all around the web. The M7 puzzle is nonetheless far from completion, but happily we’re all set to put a gigantic piece in place this present day – US availability. according to @evleaks (who else?), HTC’s upcoming spearhead will be landing on at the least three of the four significant carriers in America – AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. The number four, T-Mobile, is left out at this time, but our usually dependable source of rumors only tells us that TMO is “lacking concrete evidence”, so Magenta could still be in the mix. if you ask us, T-Mobile definitely desires a piece of HTC’s high-end smartphone pie, although the OEM’s game may have seemed somewhat off lately. At this time, there are just four HTC gadgets sold by T-Mo, two of which run Windows Phone.
 
Out of the other two, the One S is the only half decent Android, so it’s time for something new and hip, don’t you think?
As for the three US carriers supposedly “confirmed” to sell the M7, we have now to say we’re a bit amazed of Verizon. huge Red has constantly been tight with HTC, but do the carrier’s purchasers really need a sized down edition of the Droid DNA with just a few extra muscles? After all, the 5-incher has only started selling last November.

Timehop time capsule launches for Android – what were you doing a year ago today?

Timehop

Timehop, your personal social media time capsule, has launched on Android. The service helps you re-live “this day in history” by displaying the previous years’ photos that you had posted on Facebook, Instagram, Foursquare and Twitter.

Timehop started as an email service, graduated to iPhone and is now available for Android users to enjoy. You will be greeted every day with your photos from that same day in years previous. The service offers a unique way of remembering, and re-living, all of the many photos that most of us have taken and shared across various mediums over the last few years.

Timehop founder Jonathan Wegener believes that content gains value with time, that photographs become more meaningful the older they get. As many of us have digital photos and social media history going back many years, Timehop offers a great way to remenisce about past vacations, re-experience events and marvel at the growth of our children and friendships.

Timehop

Timehop claims over one million downloads for iOS and sees 40% of its users log in daily. The iOS app also sits within the Top 200 in the U.S. App Store. The initiative to get to the users of Android, the worlds largest mobile OS market share leader, began last year with a million funding campaign led by Spark Capitol.

Timehop for Android went live today for users of Android 4.0 and up. Grab your copy from the Google Play Store. Fair warning, the app currently does not support your Google+ account and requires a Facebook login to get started.

Let’s have at it, what were you posting about on this day last year?

New Android app Link Bubble saves you time, frustration when browsing

[#protected_0#]

[#protected_0#] and does something we think you’ll like. When you open a link that redirects, Link Bubble will open it in the background while you continue working or browsing. It’s a multitasking marvel, and has some incredible social integration as well.


The links start loading while you’re still using an app, but they appear in the form of a chat head-esque bubble on the left side of the screen. Much like chat heads, you can move the bubble around as you like, docking it anywhere on the screen. Long pressing the bubble will give you the option to trash, share, or save it to Pocket.

If you choose to share it, you can do so via the same sharing options you enjoy with, say, Chrome. If you don’t use Pocket, you can change it to your favorite tool in the settings menu of the app — and it doesn’t even have to be a sharing tool. You can choose things like Google Drive, or even Translate. The front page of the app itself will also tell you just how much time Link Bubble has saved you. I only used it for a few minutes, and Link Bubble said it saved me 25.9 seconds.

Pages do load really quickly, and we like that those more robust pages just load in the background while we continue with our lives. Once a page has loaded, Link bubble will automatically open up. If you just want to keep it docked for reading later, just pull it to the side of the screen or single tap to re-dock it. Links don’t open fullscreen, though — that might be our single frustration, here.

Link Bubble is simple, but also a whole lot of ‘wow’. The app is free, and an upgrade to premium will cost you .99. For that fiver, you get the option to have more than one link open (it doesn’t bring up multiple bubbles on the side of the screen, it just notes how many are open), andthe ability to open links from any app on your device. Also, you’re supporting a Developer who made a pretty neat app that saves you a lot of time.

It’s Daylight Savings Time again — Check your clocks and alarms!

 Its Daylight Savings Time again — Check your clocks and alarms!

If you’re unlucky enough to live in one of the regions — like most of the United States and Canada — where spring means pushing the clocks forward an hour in what’s called Daylight Savings Time but is better thought of as Lose an Hour of Sleep Night, then it’s time once again to do just that. And because the iPhone and iPad have historically had as much trouble handling the change as we humans, you might want to make sure you give yourself a backup alarm backup for the evening and double-check your iOS time against some other source as soon as you wake up.

Once you’re certain you’ll be waking up when you’re supposed to — or sleeping an hour later than normal! — let me know what you think about the idea of Daylight Savings Time in general? Personally I want to kill it with fire.

Word Lens augmented reality translation app adds Russian in time for the Olympics

Word Lens Russian

On the same day as the opening ceremonies for the Sochi 2014 Olympics, Quest Visual, Inc. added a new language to their Word Lens Translator – you guessed it, Russian.

Word Lens is a real time visual text translation service, categorized as an augmented reality application. Simply point your device’s camera at the desired text and it will be instantly translated right on your screen.

Word Lens has been around for a while and already offered bi-directional translations between English and Spanish, French, Italian, German and Portuguese. Russian was a no brainer inclusion considering the impact that Olympic games have on the world. I suspect that even those of us that are not bundling up for the winter games, will still run across a bit of Russian here or there in the next few weeks. We do not need to be one of the thousands of English speaking, smartphone touting athletes, coaches, family, friends, fans or media from around the globe headed to Russia for the games, to benefit from Word Lens.

Word Lens language packs install right on your device, making it perfect for travel as no data use is required. This differs from the more powerful Google Translate app, which, although supports a greater number of languages, by default, requires a network connection to operate. Running the translation from the device has the added benefit of speed, where sending text to servers and awaiting the translation, as Google Translate does, can take upwards of twenty seconds – Word Lens is virtually instant and very effectively replicates the look of the original text, which really just makes you smile when you see it in action… Why don’t you do that now:

Word Lens is also available for Google Glass; this very well could be the most powerful use of Glass, after navigation and photo/video recording, at least for those that travel frequently.

Word Lens has a free demo version, but will set you back .99 for the full version with one language pack from the Google Play Store.

If you are not already using Word lens, what language translation apps are you using?

NBC releases its updated Olympics Highlights app, just in time for Sochi 2014

nbc-sochi

The 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter games officially starts on the 7th of February, just days away now. If you’re looking for ways to stay connected to the event outside of your television, there are already plenty of apps that can help you out. Adding to the list, NBC has now released its 2014 version of the NBC Olympics Highlights app.

The latest app brings users video highlights, images from the games and a second screen option for NBC’s nightly recap program on TV. The app also includes a way to keep track of live scores and medal counts, but unfortunately live video coverage isn’t offered. NBC’s Olympics app doesn’t exactly stand out from the pack of existing options, but the layout is actually fairly decent and it’s certainly on par with alternatives when it comes to the amount of features and coverage.

If you can live without live coverage, don’t mind some in-app advertisements and are in the U.S., you can grab the app for free from Google Play. For those outside of the states, Samsung’s SOCHI WOW 2014 is probably a better choice.
