New PayAnwhere turns any iOs device into Apple Pay, credit card PoS

One of the biggest hurdles to the adoption of a theoretically more convenient wireless payment system is the lack of compatible terminals to support it.

The new Plex for iOS app has been reworked from the ground up, and it brings with a host of goodies fit for new and life-long Plex users alike.

iOS beta users can no longer leave App Store reviews

iOS beta users can no longer leave App Store reviews

Apple just implemented a small, but important change to its App Store policies that is likely to have app developers crying out with joy. Simply put, users with devices running pre-release versions of the iOS software, such as the recent versions of the iOS 9 beta, can no longer leave reviews for apps. This may seem harsh, or anti-consumer, but it's actually to protect developers' apps from having their reputation trashed by negative reviews based on bugs and crashes — things to expect from a beta anyway.
