After Google updated their Chrome app for iOS yesterday, reports starting coming in from users that the app would immediately crash after launch.
it seems that it is only affecting jailbroken iOS devices at the moment but fear not there is a simple fix that will get Chrome working again.
Simply uninstall and then re-install the Chrome app, launch the app and then tick the check box that allows usage statistics and crash reports to be automatically sent to Google. Press the accept and continue button before the app crashes and then Chrome should be fine after that.
An update to Twitter’s Android and iOS apps have added the ability to apply filters to uploaded photos. Coming shortly after Instagram stopped supporting Instagram photos in Twitter timelines, the micro-blogging service have added their own filters to their first party app.
Users have eight filters to play with and also get the usual features like zooming and cropping images.
If you like to save long articles to Pocket reading them can be very time consuming and maybe even boring after a while.
Pocket for Android has just seen an update that lets the application read out your chosen article through Android’s Text-To-Speech function . This is a nice addition for anyone thats too lazy to read their articles or would just prefer someone else doing all the hard work. Text-To-Speech on an Android tablet will be very useful for some, it will allow users to hear the articles and frees them up to do other things instead of holding a tablet.
A Russian developer has posted a video that shows a iOS hack that enables users to buy in-app purchases for free. The simple method requires a user to install security certificates and change DNS wi-fi records and your device doesn’t even need to be jailbroken to take advantage of the hack. Not all apps that feature in-app purchases are susceptible to the hack but it is confirmed that the hack works on iOS software from 3.0-6.0.
The curious minded out there should stay away from this hack because some data is processed including your locale.
This is a pretty large vulnerability for Apple and developers so we would expect both parties to move quickly to rectify the issue.
Since I left school I haven’t put my head down and enjoyed a good book. We read all day, we read on the Internet, check emails, text messages and so on so why not read a good book.
So I decide to start reading again but I didn’t want to purchase a physical book, I wanted to go down the e-book route and the first app that came to mind was the Kindle app.

If you live in the US and want a Samsung Galaxy Note your only option is AT&T, well for the time being. TmoNews has images of Samsung’s monster of a phone wearing T-Mobile branding, all but confirming we’ll see the Galaxy Note coming to T-Mobile sooner rather than later. Interestingly, this Galaxy Note is running Ice Cream Sandwich which is a good sign that the handset will actually ship with ICS.
