Apple to Shut down Beats Music

It seems that Apple has made quite an interesting decision. The famous company announced that it had decided to shut down its music streaming service Beats Music. The main reason to this decision is for the famous company to be able to focus on its Apple Music service.

So, Apple announced that all subscriptions to Beats Music will be canceled starting with November 30. Of course, users who are willing to still enjoy this service will be able to move to Apple Music, which offers all the flagship features of the Beats Music.

All the pros that curated music for you are still crafting more amazing experiences," Apple announced. "
Plus, on Apple Music, you'll get even better recommendations based on music you already listen to and love, 24/7 global radio with Beats 1, exciting material from your favorite artist, and more," the famous company added.

One of the main reasons why customers appreciated the Beats Music was that it offered them the possibility to find recommendations based on their tastes and listening habits.

However, it is important to know that this exact functionality will also be available on Apple Music. Furthermore, according to Apple, these recommendations are better than in Beats Music. The famous company does have a point on that respect, as Apple Music definitely has more features than Beats Music.

Users who plan on moving to Apple Music can rest assured that all their picks and preferences will be ported to the new service.

This means that users don't have to worry about losing anything. Another good news is that both iOS and Android users will be able to move to Apple Music. Apple has just released its Android version of this service, meaning that all users of Beats Music will be able to migrate easily. Of course, they will also get a three-month free trial for the Apple Music service.

The fact that Apple planned on shutting down the Beats Music service was something expected after the release of Apple Music. Apple actually bought Beats for no less than $3 billion. With this purchase, Apple received three different components, including Beats speakers and headphones, Beats Music and Beats executives.

Of course, the only service that will no longer be available is Music. When it comes to speakers, Apple has actually released a new model with Lighting port, meaning that at least this side of the business is something that Apple will continue to invest in.

The Apple Music service is a $10 subscription service that also includes a 24/7 radio station called Beats 1, as well as a service called Connect. The service was launched according to  in June and it already seems to be quite successful.

Only last month, Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, announced that the Apple Music service has no less than 6.5 million users.

Cook also said that other 8.5 million are part of the 90-day free trial of the service. Of course, the number of users of the Apple Music service cannot be compared with the one of Spotify, which has no less than 25 million paying members.

Learn more about the new HTC One A9

On the Android market, HTC is probably one of the most appreciated brands, due to its incredible phones, but also because of its interesting history.

Probably, not so many people know that HTC was the first company which has built an Android phone, as well as the first Nexus. This is something amazing that customers should probably consider when they are in search of an Android device.

Now, HTC has introduced a new design to its phone, which many claim to be quite similar with the one of the iPhone.

In 2013, HTC released the famous One M7, and since then the popular company continued to release devices with an aluminum unibody design, which started to be the company’s signature. Moreover, the company’s designers declared that they want to keep this design because they want their phones to be recognizable at first sight.

Well, it looks like they kept their promise by releasing the new One M9 with the same design as its predecessors. However, even if the new phone comes with the company’s signature design, it looks more like an iPhone.

Because the stereo speakers have been moved and instead they have added a home button with a built-in fingerprint reader, the back has been flattened and the corners now look more like the ones of the iPhone. At first sight, probably any customer could mistake the new device with an iPhone.

Not only that the design may seem similar, but also the battery size, which is closer in size to Apple devices, rather than to Android devices.

Moreover, the specs are also different compared with other specs found on several Android gadgets.
However, HTC has made an interesting move, releasing a phone that runs the latest Android Marshmallow and its very different according to Madd Apple Blog.

Without a doubt, many users will be attracted by Android’s latest operating system. It’s like the Taiwanese company has took all the good things from Apple and Google and combined them all together.

With Apple’s design and Google’s operating system, an amazing phone was born.
Under the hood, HTC has added a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617, which is compared with the 800 series that has more power and performance. However, this will not stop the new HTC One A9 from being highly competitive.

This phone is probably faster and smoother than any other Android phone on the market. The new Android 6.0 Marshmallow simply flies on this device. All the transitions and animations are very beautiful and most important, there is no frustrating stuttering or lag.

Another main attraction on this phone is the fingerprint reader feature. HTC has decided to remove the company’s famed stereo BoomSound speaker and add the new fingerprint reader instead.

To be added that the company has focused its audio efforts on improving the listening experience via integrating a powerful amp, headphones or supporting high-res audio and Dolby Surround Sound.

As for display, the new HTC One A9 is using a very good AMOLED display. Its 5-inch screen can easily be compared with Samsung’s amazingly Galaxy S6 screen.

The New iOS 7 Design Is Not Quite What Was Expected

Over the past few days you must have been asked at least once what you think of the new iOS 7 design. Chances are, like most of us, you were not that impressed. There’s something off with this new design and it’s obviously not quite what was expected. It feels like something is missing, and many graphic designers and users concluded they’re not exactly big fans of Apple’s iOS icon redesign.

Debuted at the World Wide Developers Conference in San Francisco just a few days ago, iOS 7 is already stirring some controversy. The main reason is the significant visual change designer Jony Ive has created for Apple’s newest iOS version. Reviewers, fellow designs and users have been having mixed feelings about the iOS 7 design, one that is considerably more practical than before but yet visibly different in a way many aren’t easily taking aback by.

“It freaks me out how much iOS looks like nail art Tumblrs” reads a tweet by Frank Chimero, designer and illustrator. “I’m not a fan of how iOS looks right now, but I have hope for its future. iOS has one thing that can’t be denied: it lacks nuance, but it has courage” the designer eventually concluded. And several other artists have had the same conclusion. Reputable typographic designer Jason Santa Maria agrees the “Multitasking, tabs, Control Center, AirDrop and general interactions are looking fantastic in iOS 7. But wow, the ugly stick”.

Aesthetics is a huge concern when it comes to selling a smartphone, and whereas the design allows for more practical solutions, change doesn’t often sit well with buyers interested in getting the branded experience. So whereas iOS 7’s more practical design features are definitely going to make for a more hassle-free experience, the visuals are something users are going to have to get used to. Or hope that iOS 7.1 will fix that.

One Day Left Before the Auxo Jailbreak Tweak Release for iPad

Auxo, one of the best jailbreak tweaks of 2012, is set for the iPad release by the start of the weekend In fact, if you’ve been waiting a long time for Auxo, there’s just one more day left before you will be able to download and install it on your jailbroken iPad.

Along with Blutrol, SwipeBack and AssistantLove, Auxo is one of the best jailbreak tweaks of last year, winning iDownloadBlog’s appreciation and gaining quite the reputation. It’s been some time, almost a year, since the Top Jailbreak Tweaks of 2012 announced jailbreakers Auxo was at the top of the list with a performance “universally praised for its excellence”. The long wait is finally over, with just a few days left before the Auxo iPad release.

The release date for Auxo for iPad has been announced via the official website ( and is set for 06.06.2013. A tweet from the Auxo developer spread the good news by the end of May: “Thank you all for your patience, the wait is almost over! Auxo for iPAd”.

If you’re new to the jailbreak scene or aren’t familiar with Auxo, better start reading a review, because this is a tweak that iDownloadBlog referred to as being the tweak that “completely reinvigorates the iOS app switcher”. The iOS app switcher tweak makes it easier and faster to remove apps from the switcher by swiping down or by shutting down multiple apps at the same time using your fingers. Yes, it allows you to use your fingers not your finger to handle apps in the switcher.

Since you might just lose it with all that new functionality, if there’s a background app running, like your listening to music, Auxo will ask you if you really meant to shut that down too. And since we’re talking about music, Auxo has actually revamped the experience, giving you more information in the app switcher, such as song title, artist name and album title.
