Hidden New iOS 8 Feature Ensures You Never Lose Your iPhone

April 17, 2015
Losing your iPhone seems to be very common these days. It's why Apple introduced Find My iPhone, a feature which most people have turned on. But there is one new feature introduced in iOS 8 that is off by default, and I would like to encourage you all to turn it on.

The feature is found if you head over to Settings --> iCloud --> Find My iPhone. There's a new toggle called "Send Last Location". This sends the location of your iPhone to Apple's servers when your battery gets too low. The point of this is because if your iPhone has no battery you are unable to check it's location using Find My iPhone.

Pennies app review for iPhone

October 17, 2014
Featuring elegant sounds, fluid animations and a simple gesture-based user interface; Pennies is the top paid finance app in the App Store for good reason. The app is a charm to use and makes it easy to keep track of how much money you've got.

Based on your spending history, the app has a 'left today' feature. This recommends how much money you should spend on this day. If you end up spending more than recommended, the app's background color turns from a happy green to a negative red. The app even takes advantage of iOS 8 by featuring a notification center widget showing your 'left today' money for every budget.

September 14, 2014
When Steve Jobs first announced the iPhone in 2007, the 3.5 inch screen was referred to as “huge”. Compared to other screen sizes at the time, that size was indeed huge.

But as time advances, customers want different things from their phones. One of those wants is a larger screen.
