[Note: The AlliOSNews review of iOS 7 will remain at the top of the home page for several days. Newer news, reviews and information will be available below this article]
With the release of iOS 7, Apple will have developed its 7th major release of its mobile operating system that has powered the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. While the evolution of iOS has been steady since it’s initial release with the iPhone in 2007, it could be argued that this latest release is revolutionary on many levels. While most have focused on the dramatic visual changes in iOS 7, there are plenty of powerful and significant changes under-the-covers that make a big update for the Cupertino company.
In this review of iOS 7 we will look at all of the major changes that come in operating system, looking at both the visual changes along with the system changes that will improve the performance or functionality of your iPhone and iPad. The most logical place to start such a review is with the powerful visual changes to iOS that come in this release.
The Flat, New Look of iOS
The most significant change is the one that everyone has been talking about since iOS 7 was previewed in July at the Worldwide Developer Conference. The visual changes, like them or not, are in stark contrast to every previous release of iOS and mark the significant divergence in attitude towards look, function and feel that was between former iOS director Scott Forstall and new director Sir Jony Ive.
With Ive’s taking over of both the hardware design – which he already had responsibility for in Apple – and the User Experience, the look and feel of iOS 7 was a marked departure from iOS 6. Gone were the Skeuomorphic designs in Calendar, Game Center and in many other parts of iOS. They have been replaced by a lighter, cleaner and more straightforward way in this release.
Along with the streamlined apps come streamlined and notably “flattened” icons for virtually all of the default applications in iOS. During the WWDC conference, a video introducing iOS 7 was presented in which Sir Jony Ive spoke of the symmetry and balance of the new icons. It was clear that the almost Zen approach to minimalism and balance would be felt throughout iOS 7.
Beyond the icons, iOS 7 introduced a new layer concept to the UI. These layers bring depth to the user experience and each layer is effectively a functional layer. For example, with an iPhone 5, as you tilt your device side-to-side, the icons appear to float over your wallpaper and allow you to see around them. This shifting around your icons gives an incredible sense of depth to the device. These layers also bring depth when using different functions within iOS. When you bring up Notification Center or the new Control Center, you will see the colour of whatever is in the background like your wallpaper or a photo you are viewing in iMessage.
Lies of Astaroth is a free-to-play and highly addictive epic fantasy MMORPG card-battle hybrid! With more than 200 beautifully drawn characters and dazzling battle effects, Lies of Astaroth is visually pleasing in a way other battle card games only dream of being. As the game begins, you meet an envoy to The God of Prophecy. Together, you will travel through a world filled with spies, thieves, goblins, assassins, priests, dragons and other magical creatures, passing through magical forests into underground cities, all the while, battling whatever creatures come your way.
After experiencing a successful release of the Lies of Astaroth in the past few months, iFree Studio is proud to announce the release of Version 1.3 to gamers globally.
The update brings many new features & functions to the game.
1. Once a player reaches level 45, 2 new functions will become available: Card Evolve and Card Skill Shuffle. Card
Evolution: You can use 2 of the same cards (3 or 4-star card) that are both level 10 and ‘evolve’ them into 1 super card. The new card will be able to reach level 15. When a card is enchanted to level 15 it will receive a 4th skill. Shuffle Skill: If you have evolved a card and enchanted it to level 15 you have the option of shuffling the new 4th skill, by using a duplicate of that same card.
2. Rewards: A rewards tab has been added to the Campaign Notice board. Players will receive awards for reaching miscellaneous milestones.
3. Class Card Packs: Kingdom, Forest, Wilderness and Hell. Every night from 20:00-22:00 limited time card packs will become available. Each card pack will cost 150 Crystals, however all cards in the pack will be from the designated class.
4. New Maps: We’ve added maps 11: Wilderness Volcano and 12: Ruined Charred Plains.
5. Facebook Login enabled. If you are new to this game, you can directly connect with facebook to start a new account; if you are an existing player, you can connect with Facebook to login to your account via different devices. You can find it in Menu – Settings.
Lies of Astaroth just released its latest server a few days before: Athena. If you never played this game on your iPhone or iPad, we recommend you try this game out today. Don’t miss out!
Lies of Astaroth is a free universal app in the App Store with In-App Purchases available. In-App purchases range from $5.99-$79.99.
Apple has seeded iOS 7 Beta 5 to the Developer network. The new beta comes only a week after Beta 4 was released to developers, signalling that Apple is pushing hard to get the new iOS out in the September-October timeframe. There are a pile of changes in this beta which remains closed to developers only at this time.
There are many changes in Beta 5 including the icons used in the Settings (coloured now instead of blue-on-white backgrounds), new button look in the Phone app, and the ability to disable Control Center within various apps. The Twitter icon has also been updated in Control Center and the startup screen is now white instead of black.
Various under-the-hood improvements have also happened in iOS 7 Beta 5 to add stability to the Beta.
The Black river Emerald by newcomer developer AppEndix LLC is both: a book, in fact a complete novel in the best tradition of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories, written by renowned gamebook author Peter Ryan; and an interactive app, in which you attempt to uncover the mysterious theft of the famous Black River emerald from the once-exclusive Belton School for boys in Shropshire. Theft, blackmail and attempted murder are not yet part of the curriculum! And if mystery and danger abound, can Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson be far behind?

Independent developer, Antons Zaicevs, introduces History Of Painting 1.0 for iOS. Users will explore the evolution of painting, meet the greatest painters, touch their most famous pictures, and learn the history and highlights of each painting style. With the awesome user interface, app users will feel like they are in the real art gallery.
Painting is the most beautiful form of art. The history of painting reaches back in time to artifacts from pre-historic humans, and spans all cultures. It represents a continuous, though periodically disrupted tradition from Antiquity. Across cultures, and spanning continents and millennia, the history of painting is an ongoing river of creativity, that continues
into the 21st century. Until the early 20th century it relied primarily on representational, religious and classical motifs, after which time more purely abstract and conceptual approaches gained favor.
* Learn all main painting styles like: Renaissance, Mannerism, Rococo, Baroque, Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Realism and Modern
* 39 most famous painters are waiting you: Leonardo Da Vinci, Sandro Botticelli, Rafael, Titian, Rubens, Rembrandt, Velasquez, Boucher, Watteau, Delacroix, Turner, Aivazovsky, Brullov, Goya, Chardin, Daumier, Repin, Shiskin, Dali, Monet, Manet, Picasso, Van Gogh and others
* More than 150 paintings with fullscreen mode for exploring every detail
* Detailed description and history of each style with highlights of its main features
* Travel thru centuries of history to learn to determine the style of the pictures by yourself
History Of Painting 1.0 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category.

Twitter has released a significant update to their iOS app today, brining some improved performance to the social networking app along with new features. The 5.5 version is now available in the App Store and it is a universal app and with this version support for Twitter Cards, a new tool the company brought to developers a few weeks ago.
The concept of Twitter Cards for end users is the ability to have a deep-link to another app on their iPhone or iPad when a link in a Tweet is tapped. So for example, if I were to post something on Foursquare to my Twitter feed. When you see
that in your Twitter app, you can tap the link and it will automatically launch the Foursquare app on your device, providing you a native experience. This feature is slowly rolling out to end users over the course of the next several weeks and only a few developers – Foursquare, Vine, Path, Flickr and Soundcloud – are on board at this point. Hopefully Instagram some day?
Other updates in this release include:
- Faster launch times and general performance upgrades
- “Retweeted by” in Tweet detail is now tappable
- Fix for reply-to-self in conversations
- Fix for bug that prevented undoing retweets in some cases
The update is free in the App Store and if you are one of the very few who don’t have a Twitter account, you will need one of those as well which is also free (and can be signed up for in the app).
If you are one of the few people on the planet who haven’t purchased Angry Birds then today is your lucky day! The original version of the game is now free in the App Store. The change came over the weekend and covers both the iPhone version as well as the iPad HD version of the game.
Angry Birds made its debut in December 2009 and has been purchased over 12 million times by Apple iPhone, iPod Touch
and iPad owners since that time. There have been many spinoffs of the game including Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Space and Angry Birds Star Wars but the original is, well, kinda a classic now.
The only change from the original release back in 2009 is the addition of Power Ups, a feature that made its debut in one of the updates of 2011 to the game. All of the original levels are there though and nothing has been left out.
Equally as important, this is NOT a lite version or an ad supported version of the game. It is the original now free. This is different than some games which have moved to a “freemium” model instead of pay games and are ad supported and you get to pay-to-play.
If you missed out on all the fun, use the links below to download your copy to your iOS device today. After you play a few rounds, you’ll understand why Angry Birds is so popular – and so addictive.
