Pointers: get more and less from Spotlight

05/22, 12:47pm

There must have been a time before Spotlight, but who wants to remember that? While we've often recommended applications with similar functions like LaunchBar 6 and Alfred 2, what Spotlight does out of the box is very good. It could be handier, though, and you can stop it searching everything, everywhere. You are always more likely to search for music in iTunes, for instance, so having Spotlight list all the soppy ballads you own takes time and might be embarrassing.

Apple Watch: US sales figures; heart rate flaw in 1.0.1 update?

05/22, 12:40pm

Figures extrapolated from some 14,000 online shoppers who use Slice Intelligence's services suggests that the Apple Watch is selling approximately 30,000 units a day, following an unsurprising initial rush of over 2.5 million pre-orders. While some analysts will inevitably portray this as a slump, the drop-off is typical of new products, and puts the Apple Watch on pace to have outsold all existing smartwatches on its first day or two of pre-ordering, and outselling the early days of the iPhone and iPad.

Hands On: Breezeblox 1.1 (iOS)

05/22, 10:26am

We know that spatial-awareness puzzles require a certain kind of person: a bold person, one who isn't afraid to get their mind tangled up in the puzzle. They've got to be a little pensive, too. After all, these puzzles often require a very specific solution, putting the wits of even the best lateral thinker to the test. One such puzzler is Breezeblox, a deceptively inviting puzzle game about a jiggly square.

Hands On: Lost Within 1.0 (iOS, Android)

05/21, 10:11am

We're no stranger to spooky games and scary themes, but sometimes the suspense inherent in horror survival games makes us very anxious, and it's difficult to get a good play session rolling. When faced with having to sneak through a creepy asylum, with a creepy kid whispering creepy things at us, and gurgling "inhabitants" chasing us into lockers ... we did the only thing any rational adult would do. We called our friend Todd, and asked him to virtually hold our hand through Skype while we played Lost Within by Amazon Game Studios.

Promotional photo may be leak of Touch ID-equipped iPhone 5c

05/21, 9:44am

Among the promotional photos released in connection with the new Apple Lightning Dock designed for the iPhone 6 line (but which also works with the older iPhone 5 family) is an image that appears to show an iPhone 5c equipped with a Touch ID sensor rather than the normal home button. While the image could be a simple Photoshop gaffe, it raises the possibility that Apple might refit and freshen the iPhone 5c to be able to handle Apple Pay as part of a larger, multi-country rollout of the mobile payments service.
