Stroop Effect Icon

A New Entertaining Logic Puzzle Stroop Effect! Released for iOS

0

Independent developer Attila Hegedus announced the release and immediate availability of Stroop effect!, his new logic puzzle app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Stroop effect! can serve as both an entertaining and educational app.

Stroop effect! is a fun and effective tool for measuring how quickly the player’s brain responds to conflicting information. There are 3 words displayed on the screen. One word is placed centered at the top of the screen and the other two words are placed in the bottom left and right corners. Each word displays the name of a color. However, the word is not necessarily tinted in the color it denotes. The player needs to select the option whose text denotes the color of the word at the top of the screen. The challenge lies in that the bottom text is not necessarily colored in the hue in which it is represented.

For example, the word at the top of the screen says ‘Green’ and is colored green. The choices at the bottom of the screen are ‘Red’ and ‘Green.’ However, the word ‘Red’ is colored green and the word ‘Green’ is colored red. Despite it being colored red, the correct choice at the bottom of the screen is the word ‘Green’ because it is the color of the word at the top of the screen. Basically, the player is required to indicate the color of the word – not what the word says.

OS X Mavericks Icon

Apple Seeds OS X 10.9.3 to Developers

0

Apple has released the 6th beta of the next major update to Mavericks, OS 10.9.3.  The update, known as Build 13D38, was released less than a week after the previous seeding.  If history is any indicator, the rapid release of beta builds indicates either Apple has found a major bug in the update or is rapidly approaching the completed point for the update.

The update focuses on the same major areas and according to our developer insider, asks that Graphics, Audio, Mail and Calendar & Contacts sync over USB to iTunes be tested.  The Calendar & Contacts sync is returning after being removed in earlier releases and developers will need the beta of iTunes (11.1.6) to test this functionality.  OS X 10.9.3

also will bring support to 4K displays for Mavericks at improved refresh rates.  Equally as important, the build contains no known issues which is a good indicator that Apple and their developer community are progressing the update.

As with every Apple beta release, it is only open to developers in their developer network.  There is no indication on when the public will see OS X 10.9.3.  For more information on the Apple Developer network, you can check out http://developer.apple.com.  Joining the OS X network is $100 annually and the iOS developer train is an additional $100 per annum.

0

Do you have a four-legged friend? Are you constantly sharing stories and pictures of your dog? Are you always on the hunt for dog-friendly places? Are you looking for people to connect with that share your passion for dogs? Do you wish you could speak to a veterinarian whenever you have questions about your dog’s health? If you said yes to any of these questions, then you need to download Business Competence’s latest app, Dogalize.

Dogalize is a social network for dog owners. Users can create a profile for themselves and include information about their four-legged friends such as Name, Breed, and Character. The app then allows users to connect with other dog owners and see how they take care of their dogs.

However Dogalize is not an ordinary run-of-the-mill social network. The application is also the first to feature veterinary telemedicine. If your dog is in need of an immediate veterinarian consultation, Dogalize will connect you with an available vet via video call. This communication feature is also available for friends on your social network, meaning you can show off your dog’s talents in real time.

Here is a trailer of how the app works and what it offers to dog owners

iOS7 Wallpaper for iPhone

iOS 7 Adoption Rate at 87% according to Apple

0

Apple has posted on their developer website an impressive statistic.  By measuring the iOS version of users coming to the App Store, Apple has determined that 87% of all users are using iOS 7 or iOS 7.1.  That is stunningly impressive when you consider where the latest version of Android is 5.3% according to Google’s developer site.  iOS 7 has been out for consumers for 7 months now and through the free upgrades and essentially one-tap upgrades, the vast majority of iPhone and iPad users have taken the plunge.

Here at AlliOSNews, we could hardly disagree with Apple’s findings.  In reviewing our statistics, a whopping 90.49% of

iOS 7 Adoption Rate

iOS 7 Adoption Rate (Source: Apple, Inc.)

visitors to the site on a mobile device were on a derivative of iOS 7 over the course of the past 10 days.  Even more interesting, iOS 7.1 accounted for 51.99% of that traffic while iOS 7.0 was only 1.52%.

To be clear, Apple is basing their stats on the number of visitors to the App Store.  It’s a pretty solid number to go on but it isn’t foolproof.  If, for example users only get new apps and updates from syncing with iTunes, it may not count the numbers correctly – so it could be higher or lower.  But no matter how you slice it, Apple is seeing a nice adoption rate for their latest version of iOS.

How To View Open Web Pages on Your iPad From Your iPhone

0

Here is the scene:  You have your iPad upstairs/downstairs in your home office and you were on a website looking up a gift for a family member.  Your wife/husband/partner asks you about it and you open up Safari on your iPhone… but then remember that you were looking at it on your iPad.  Dilemma:  Do you trot upstairs/downstairs to get your iPad or do you try in vein to remember the site you were searching?  The correct answer is neither.  Through the beauty of iCloud you have all of the open pages on your iPad right at your finger tips on your iPhone and in this AlliOSNews How To, I will show you how to quickly and easily get to those pages.

There are a lot of things that iCloud can do for you, one of which is synchronising your open websites between your iPhone, iPad and Mac.  On your iPad or on your Mac you simply tap the iCloud icon in Safari and you are shown a list of all of the open pages across your devices.  This allows you to quickly and easily open them from another device.  But for iPhone under iOS 7.1, Apple made it that much easier and frankly I’d love to see this on iPad.
