How to Block Websites on your iPhone

iPhones and iPads have become the among the most popular gadgets in the world.  The many features, design elements, and customer service you receive with an iPhone are just a few of the reasons why these devices are so popular.

Though iPhones were released only a short while ago, they have quickly become one of the most used devices in the world. In iOS 6, it’s not possible to block specific websites in the Safari browser. However, if your iPhone is running on iOS 7, it’s possible to block particular websites in Safari. The Restrictions Option in Safari allows you to block any website you want. In iOS 7, this feature comes as a major relief for people who don’t want others to access specific websites on their iPhones. It’s worth mentioning that Apple announced users will also be able to block specific websites in iOS 8. Blocking websites in Safari on these versions of iOS is very easy. You just have to enter the website’s URL and Name to block it in your Safari browser on the iPhone.

MobileGo for iOS by Wondershare Review

Have you ever wanted to pull a song or picture off of your iPhone or iPad? This can often be tougher than you would think since Apple doesn’t want its users freely moving music, videos, etc around. iTunes also has a few other limitations, particularly when it comes to syncing contacts and just generally backing up data/contacts/etc. This is where software like MobileGo comes in.

I recently had a chance to test out MobileGo for iOS. This is a handy little utility from Wondershare that allows you to transfer files, pictures, and music from an iPhone/iPad to your computer and vice versa. This software essentially makes it much easier to manage the files on your Apple device. According to Wondershare’s website, this software is 100% compatible with iPhone 5, 4S, iPod touch 5, iPod nano, iPod classic, iPod shuffle, iPad mini, the iPad, and more.

Tablet Development Overview

Many people think of tablets as large smartphones, but the difference is much bigger if you talk to an app developer. While the larger screen is definitely something to contend with, there are other hardware components and layout issues to consider when developing an app for a tablet. These are the major differences that you should consider when making anything for the tablet platform.

Screen Size

Most smartphones have a 4-inch display while tablets have a 7-inch or 10-inch display. This might seem like a small difference, but it’s not. The app developer must enlarge the app to fit the tablet’s screen without distortions. While the app can stretch by itself without any tweaking, this will usually lead to problems such as blurry graphics and slow loading times.

Apple Falls from the Tree, Rolls Down the Hill and Continues to Struggle

Apple has done more than fall from the tree; it has rolled down the hill and is struggling to get back up as other technology competitors are surging forward. Coming off a great year in 2012, Apple seems to be falling into a rut, much like it did in 2001, after the iPod release. While there are some that think this is the beginning of the end, others are confident the giant will rally again with something great.

What’s Happening with Apple?

Since the introduction of the iPad mini, things have been on a slippery slide for Apple. The popularity of the mini is a double-edged sword. While it is bringing in lots of new Apple customers and sales are great, the profit margin on this tablet is less than that of the iPad. To make matters worse, the more affordable cost of the mini is forcing the price of the iPad to drop.
