BlackBerry suspends release of BBM for Android and iOS

According to a BlackBerry blog post, the unreleased app “caused issues”, that the company has been trying to resolve. The Android app has now been disabled, but customers who downloaded the BBM for iPhone app will still be able to use BBM.

“Our teams continue to work around the clock to bring BBM to Android and iPhone, but only when it’s ready and we know it will live up to your expectations of BBM,” said BlackBerry’s Luke Reimer. “As soon as we are able, we will begin a staggered country roll-out of BBM for Android and continue the roll-out of BBM for iPhone.”

Although BlackBerry did not elaborate on the cause of these “issues”, security expert Graham Cluley suggested that BlackBerry may not have been able to cope with the spike of activity hitting its servers.

“What seems, in part, to have tripped up BlackBerry is the poorly-policed free-and-easy Google Play Android app store, where multiple BBM apps, posing as official releases, appeared,” he said.

“Most Android users assume that if an app is in the official Google Play store, it must be official and safe to install on their phone. The truth, sadly, is rather different.”

Reimer noted that more than 1.1 million active users downloaded the BBM for Android app – albeit the unofficial version – in the first 8 hours after launch, indicating that demand for the Blackberry instant messaging service on other mobile platforms is high.

However, the decision to pull the app is likely to knock consumer confidence in the platform, with users not knowing how long the service will be available for.

The news follows BlackBerry’s announcement last week it will be laying off 40 percent of its global workforce – around 4,500 positions – and reporting losses of nearly $1 billion at its second quarter results later this month.

The announcement will include a mammoth writedown of up to $960m, partly down to unsold handsets, and a $72m charge for restructuring.

Apple Sells 9 Million Of It’s Iphone In Debut Weekend

Apple said Monday that it sold nine million of its two new handsets in their first three days on the market. Apple sold nine million iPhone 5s in three days, versus BlackBerry, which sold about a third as much in three months.

The company also said that its quarterly sales and profit margin would likely be at the high end of the company’s previous forecast. Apple in July projected revenue between $34 billion and $37 billion and gross margin between 36% and 37%. The company’s stock jumped $23.23, or 5%, to close at $490.64 on the Nasdaq Stock Market.

Apple also said that more than 200 million of its devices already were running iOS 7—a free overhaul released last week of the operating system used on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices.

Hidden iPhone features to be enabled by iOS 7

Alongside the blaze of publicity for the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5c, Apple also announced it is to release its latest operating system iOS 7 for mobile devices.

Apple is due to release iOS 7 to the public on September 18, just ahead of the two new iPhones themselves.

While some of the headline-grabbing features of iOS 7 will only be available on the new iPhones, like the fingerprint ID function, there are many hidden tweaks and new features for older devices.

Like previous iOS updates, however, owners of older devices will find themselves being left behind as their iPhones and iPads are denied access some of the new features.

Some of this is due to the limitations of the hardware on older devices, while other features that will be left out are harder to explain.

So what new features can iPhone and iPad users who are not able to afford an upgrade to the latest devices look forward to enjoying?

Torch facility

While many competing devices have the capacity to function as torches for some time, iPhone users have had to rely on third party Apps to help them search for their keys or find the door lock in the dark.

However, with iOS 7 Apple is finally introducing a torch facility as a standard feature to the iPhone.

At the touch of a button, users will be able to turn on the LED flash on the back of the phone. The flashlight button can be accessed through the new control centre.

Control Centre

An all new control centre – just swipe upwards on any screen and a new pane will appear allowing you to control Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, switch on Airplane mode, adjust the brightness of the screen and play or skip music.

The control centre can even be accessed from the locked screen.

Do not disturb

For those who like to switch off once in a while, but potentially also a welcome change for anyone irritated by those who refuse to turn their phone off while at the cinema or theatre. While the Do Not Disturb function is present in iOS 6, it was not obvious. Buried in the settings menu, it was probably greatly underused or overlooked by many.

In iOS 7, Apple has moved the Do Not Disturb switch to the Control Centre, meaning it can be accessed and switched on far more easily.

Just touch the little half moon icon and it will leave you free from being pestered by emails, messages and phone calls.

Schedules can also be set up through the Notifications setting menu, along with exceptions that will allow some calls from important contacts get through.

A new way to access search

The ability to search on the iPhone and iPad has been around for a while, however, iOS 7 will introduce a new way of accessing it.

Simply swiping down on the homescreen will open a search box and the keyboard, allowing you to search without having to swipe to a dedicated screen as in previous versions of the software.

Swipe up to close Apps

Like in previous versions of iOS, double clicking the home button at the bottom of the phone will show all of the Apps that are currently open.  Simply swipe up on the screen to close the app.

Level out your life

The Compass App that has been a feature of the iPhone for some time now comes with an added little extra – a spirit level. Never have wonky pictures or squint shelves again.

Alternatively use it to arrange the items on your desk into a perfect geometric pattern.

Apple Launches iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c Priced @ N183,000 and N106,000 Respectively

Apple today launched two new phones to its family, an iPhone 5s which is a major upgrade to the iPhone 5, and the cost-effective version of the iPhone 5, the iPhone 5c. TimeTech reportsoth phones will launch simultaneously on September 20. Apple revealed the phones during a press event at its corporate campus in Cupertino, California on Tuesday afternoon. Apple claims the iPhone 5S is up to twice as fast for both CPU and graphics and says the new A7 processor housed within includes over a billion transistors — twice as many as the A6 processor in the iPhone 5, while retaining the same footprint (iOS 7 has apparently been updated to take advantage of the new 64-bit architecture, too). The iPhone 5S will be available in black, gold or silver colors. The iPhone 5S also includes something Apple calls an M7 motion co-processor, which keeps tabs on the device’s accelerometer, gyroscope and compass. Apple says this will enable new types of health and fitness apps, such as a new Nike+ Move app that keeps track of how active you are. As expected, the iPhone 5S will include a touch ID fingerprint sensor built into the Home button. It’ll scan fingerprints in any orientation as well as sub-dermal fingerprint layers, and Apple noted you can use it to unlock your phone without a PIN or make iTunes purchases without entering a password. Lest you worry that data’s being stored in the cloud, Apple confirmed it’s not backed up or stored on Apple’s servers, and that it’s encrypted and locked within the A7 chip — it’s not directly accessible by software. Camera-wise, the iPhone 5S’s aperture is slightly larger than the iPhone 5′s, the f-number dropping from f/2.4 to f/2.2 (lower is better). It’ll also do auto image stabilization, allowing you to take multiple photos at once and combine the sharpest parts of each. You can now operate in Burst Mode (hold the shutter to snap up to 10 frames per second) or use a “SloMo” camera app that lets you shoot video at up to 120 frames per second at 720p. The iPhone 5C, by comparison, includes Apple’s older (but still powerful) A6 processor, an 8-megapixel camera, polycarbonate casing without seams or cracks, a higher battery capacity than prior iPhones and availability in multiple colors, including white, blue, yellow, red and green. It includes a front-facing FaceTime HD camera capable of taking sharper pictures. Apple’s listing the unlocked pricing for the iPhone 5C on its website as $550(N90,000) (16 GB) and $650 (N103,000) (32 GB). Colorized custom cases will sell for $29, and the cases have holes in the back, allowing you to create a two-tone look if you prefer

BlackBerry Live: BBM for Apple, Android phones coming this summer

BlackBerry has just announced that its hugely popular BBM messaging service is going multi-platform: it will be released for Android and iOS as a free app this summer. BBM will support iOS hardware running iOS 6 and above; the Android version will be compatible with version 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and above. “It’s time to bring BBM to a greater audience,” CEO Thorsten Heins said in announcing the expansion, “no matter what mobile device they carry.”

Though it’s long been considered one of BlackBerry’s strongest exclusive offerings, Heins said that his company aims to deliver a “fully featured” BBM experience on rival smartphone operating systems. “We’re starting with messaging and groups, but we’ll bring voice, screen share, and of course, channels later on,” he said.

“Why are we doing this now? It’s a statement of confidence,” Heins went on. He said that BlackBerry 10′s prospects are “so strong that we are confident that BBM can become an independent messaging solution.”

In a press release, BlackBerry notes that BBM’s successful move to iOS and Android depends upon the approval of Apple and Google. Assuming things go according to plan, BLACKBERRY’S KILLER APP WON’T BE AN EXCLUSIVE ANYMORE.
