New Calendars 5 Update Focuses on Bringing People Together

Posted by on January 24th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The latest update for Calendars 5 is sporting a number of improvements; many of which specifically involve organizing plans with other people.

The new ‘Smart Input’ as they’re calling it will allow you to simply type in a person’s name, event, and even a location while Calendars 5 does the rest. Want to schedule a meeting with Chuck Finley at a nearby diner? Well just type in “Meet Chuck Finley at Diner” and the app will pull up a list of diners in the area, along with the meeting information. Select the place you want, verify, then send an invite straight to his email address. And for the record, yes. That was totally a Burn Notice reference.

The update also allows users to import ICS files, as well as including a new Notification Center that helps manage all those invites they’re bound to be getting. Existing users can download the new Calendars 5 update right now, and potential new users can purchase the app for $6.99.

Latest Update for Minecraft – Pocket Edition Adds Improves the Look, Expands the View, and Adds Lots of New Stuff

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Remember when Minecraft – Pocket Edition first came out and people were disappointed because it paled so much in comparison to the PC version? Well those differences have been slowly disappearing over the past two years. In fact, this latest update (0.8.0) is purported to be the biggest one yet. And based on what I’m seeing in the notes, I’m inclined to agree!

What do you get when you update Minecraft – Pocket Edition this time? Not much; just mine carts, textures lifted from the PC version, new blocks like carpets and iron bars, more crops, several additions to Creative Mode, improved lighting, an increased view distance, and more. Check below for the update notes. Or, you know, just download it already.

What’s New in Version 0.8.0

– New textures and colours taken directly from the PC version

Readdle’s Calendars 5 app has recently been updated to 5.1; resulting in a fair number of changes to the Task Manager as well as the addition of something users have apparently been clamoring for.

Adding new tasks has been made easier and faster, the app will automatically sync with the default Calendar app, “Today” has been changed from a list to a filter in order to make scheduling and referencing much easier, and lots of other stuff besides. Oh, and people really, really wanted to be able to see the current date displayed on the Calendars 5 app icon as a badge. Well that option is finally in there, too!

Cowbell Hero released back in January of this year, and is already in need of help to renew its music license for its songs. The company has launched a new Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds needed, which explains why they need the money so soon.

“The commercial music was licensed for three years. By the time the game became available on the App Store, about two years of the contracts had already passed,” as said on the Kickstarter page.

Cowbell Hero is a rhythm game that features songs like “Down on the Corner”, “Hair of the Dog”, and “(Don’t Fear) the Reaper”, along with 11 classic rock songs from the 70’s and 15 originals. Check out the Kickstarter campaign by clicking here.
