Update to WWDC iOS app includes video downloading, bug fixes

In light of today being the start of this year's Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, the WWDC app has received an update on iTunes. Users of the app can now download session videos to watch on iOS devices, as well as stream content, and browse times, locations and descriptions for sessions, labs, and special events as was previously available. Features relevant to those who are attending the conference in San Francisco include maps for finding one's way around Moscone West, and adding one's check-in pass to the Passbook feature. The WWDC app requires iOS 7.1 or later to run.

Spotify adds ability to take tracks offline to its iOS app

Music streaming service Spotify has released an update to its iOS app, enabling a new "Available Offline" toggle inside its Songs tab. Users can now instantly download and then listen to their catalog of compiled music, without the need for an Internet connection. Users can host as many as 3,333 songs per device, and can have them remain as "offline" for up to 30 days. Spotify for iOS is available for download through iTunes, with the offline listening feature included for premium subscriptions.
