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
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.
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.

Farseer Games has released Krashlander – Ski, Jump, Crash! for iOS, a major update to their 2D, platform-style, physics-powered ski game. Evil robots have destroyed the world and the player must ski down large mountain slopes and soar over gaping crevices to attack the robots and exact revenge. Utilizing a physics driven control mechanic from an abandoned game called Ski Stunt Simulator, Krashlander challenges players to destroy robots by crashing into them. It is a skill-based game with 40 progressively more challenging levels.
To navigate the game, the player uses a touch surface on the right side of the screen to control the physical posture of the skier. Adjusting the posture will help the skier avoid obstacles, increase speed, or jump off cliffs to take out the robots. Some levels may require multiple runs to destroy the target.
Here is the official trailer to give you a flavour of how Krashlander is played.
“The great thing about Krashlander is you can play each level a little differently,” says Phil Eaves of SlidetoPlay (20 Feb 2013). “You can do flips off of cliffs if you want, or you can play it safe. It’s a game that makes you feel cool when you pull off all the right moves.”
