GigaOM noticed that Apple quietly released an update to Siri that offers to put a user in contact with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, should he or she mention suicide.
Should the person decline the offer, Siri then brings up area suicide prevention centers in a second attempt to provide resources.
As GigaOM notes, Google has had this search since 2010.
This metaphor overview quickly references how items like buttons, switches, one-of-n selection, and other common interface items are expressed by default in the target arenas.
Camera apps seem to get most of the attention from iPhone users, probably because there are a lot more people taking stills than video.
The iPhonedoes have very capable video features, and some third parties seem to have outdone Apple when it comes to creating and editing videos you will want to share.
Videon is a perfect example. This US$2.99 app lets you shoot video as well as edit out those bits that should be left on the virtual cutting room floor. Videon’s feature set is complete, with a nice-looking digital zoom, multiple resolutions and aspect ratios, adjustable frame rates for slow motion, independent focus and exposure points, and the ability to take a photo while you are recording a video.
Here’s a step by step guide on how to downgrade iOS 7 to iOS 6.1.3 on iPhone 4S, iPod touch 5, iPhone 4, or iOS 6.1.4 if you have an iPhone 5.
The process is easy as pie, and simply involves restoring an IPSW via iTunes like you do regularly on any iOS device. Even still, we want to make the whole process as painless as possible by breaking it down into simple steps.
What you’ll need:
- Download iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5. If you have an iPhone 4S, iPod touch 5 or an iPhone 4, then download iOS 6.1.3. Save the IPSW file to your desktop for easy access.
- Latest version of iTunes installed on your PC or Mac.
- Lightning cable for iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5, or 30-pin connector for iPhone 4S / 4.
