This year has been a rush-hour for new Android tablets being released in the market. Many people are confused between the numerous options available. Should I get an iPad or an Android tablet? According to my opinion, the iPad is still ahead any other manufacturer; especially for business users.
The most exciting feature of the Apple iPhone 4S at the moment is Siri, the virtual assistant. As it is supported only in iOS 5 at the moment, the hope is that it will be coming to the iPad and iPad 2 soon. Hackers have been even able to import Siri to the iPhone 4. Now, it’s the iPad 2′s turn to get the famous virtual assistant – Siri.
Developers have also ported Siri on the first generation jailbroken iPad, but it is facing some connectivity problems. The virtual assistant is unable to connect to Apple Servers in many cases. Developers are continuously trying to solve this problem.
With the upcoming thrill and increasing excitement for Siri, it is obvious that the iPad 2 will get it too very soon.
Let’s take a look at what Siri does and why it is so discussed!
Siri was introduced in iOS 5 on the Apple iPhone 4S. It is the most important distinction between the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S. It is capable of doing anything from setting up reminders to opening up your bookmarks in the web browser, just with simple voice commands.
The assumptions are that Apple will shortly release an iOS 5 update that will enable the iPad 2 and iPhone 4 to run Siri officially.
The question now is whether developers can successfully port Siri to the jailbroken iPad 2 first or if Apple will release a patch for other iOS 5 devices before that happens.
The Apple event that took place last week was majorly based on the announcement of the new iPhone 4S smartphone. Read More
One great feature in the iOS 5 that will help you be more wireless in your life is the new Wi-Fi sync capability. This feature will let you update your photos, musics, apps, movies, videos and other libraries on your iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and your PC so that they are all synced to reflect any changes you make on either of the devices. This is great feature. This will relieve you of the tension of connecting your iPad or iPhone 4 and 4S also for that matter, to your PC using the sync or charge cable and copy everything manually to update your files.
For this however, you will have enable the feature on iTunes as well. And whenever you connect your iPad, or your iPhone 4 or 4S, to a power outlet, the device will connect to your Wi-Fi network and sync everything by it self, so that you dont have the tension of syncing everything. You can also, however, do it manually by going to Setting, then the General tab, then iTunes Wi-Fi Sync, and tapping the Sync Now button. To enable all this, you will have to follow the steps given below:
- Connect your iPad to your PC via USB / sync cable.
- In the Devices section in the left-hand pane of the iTunes window, click on your iPad’s name and you’ll see it highlighted in blue
- Then in the main window of iTunes scroll down just a bit so you can see the Options section
- You should see that the second checkbox under Options is ‘Sync with this iPad over Wi-Fi’ – click on that to make it checked / selected.
We have all enjoyed the great AirPlay mirroring capability of the iPad 2 for games from a few months, and the new iOS 5 extends the feature’s capabilities to a whole new level. This feature has now been carried over to the new iPhone 4S, which completely changes the world of video games. With this, Firemint might be the first company to utilize the feature completely to bring in more features to its game, Real Racing.
We have enjoyed Real Racing on big screen using the iPad 2 as a controller. Now, you can do the same with the new iPhone 4S. Who would have thought, when the iPhone was first announced years ago, that it would become one of the major competitors to the world of console based gaming. With the new dual graphics and the iPad 2 features A5 processor, the iPhone 4S is built to play high graphics games.
The ability to hook it up to a big screen using the Apple TV wirelessly makes it a wireless controller for games. Which is nothing less than modern game consoles. Also, Firemint is going a step further and adding multiplayer capabilities to the game. This means you can hook up multiple iPhone 4S and iPad 2 to the Apple TV and race against each other. Who would say no to that.
The Party Play mode on the new Real Racing will allow up to a max of 4 users to play simultaneously with each others, with the concept of split screen. So 4 screens, 4 players, 4 cars, 4 wireless controllers (iPhone 4s or iPad 2), one Apple TV, and one big screen TV. You are nothing less that a very intense high graphics gameplay on any console. I bet you would love to have this. I would trade my PS3 for this.
There is no time frame given by the company for the release of the new version. But they say that the upgrade would be free for current Real Racing owners. For new buyers, the iPhone 4S version will be $4.99 and the iPad 2 version will be $6.99.
Did you even want to run a really cool Android app on your iPad just because one of your friends has it on his Android tablet or smart phone? Well, if you did, your dream is coming true now. People have started porting the Dalvik virtual machine on to a lot of other platforms like the BlackBerry, HP’s WebOS, and finally, Apple’s iOS. So, the day is not far away when you can install Gmail and Google’s music app on your iPad, which is obviously awesome.
Alien Dalvik is the virtual machine which is said to do the magic. The developers say that they are implementing an layer of Alien Dalvik virtual machine between the Android app and the iOS architecture. Though there will be some bugs for sure, this middle layer implementation of the Alien Dalvik virtual machine will try to minimize the number of bugs there could be.
“From a user perspective, Alien Dalvik 2.0 is completely transparent and installed without user disruption. Users simply enjoy the same rich Android ecosystem they have become accustomed to via mobile on other key screens, such as playing Angry Birds on HDTV. This all while gaining faster access to a wider range of apps, thus encouraging a higher frequency of downloads and increased ARPU.”
But to be frank, have you ever wanted to port an app from Android to iOS, or have you been completely satisfied with the many thousands of apps available for the iOS platform? Even if you wanted to get an app from the Android Market on to your iPad, which app would it be?
Many people say that they would never want an Android app on their iPad, but if that were to be true, why would anyone spend so much of productive time on porting the apps to the iOS platform. What do you think?
