Rovio makes ‘Angry Birds’ and ‘Angry Birds HD’ free to play on iOS!

Rovio’s Angry Birds — one of the world’s most popular mobile games — is now available for free from the app store. First noticed by Appsfire, the price drop from $0.99 (iPhone) and $2.99 (iPad HD version) represents the first time that the game has been available for free since its 2009 release. The free versions of both Angry Birds and Angry Birds HD— which were limited to a few playable levels — have been removed from the App Store in the US and UK. We’ve reached out to Rovio to see if this is a permanent move, or a limited-time offer.

Impressed by Ubuntu Phone? Get Ubuntu’s Vertical App Switcher On Android With Unity Launcher.

At the beginning of the year, Canonical announced its Ubuntu for phones project that will soon enable you to enjoy a full-fledged, standalone version of the popular Linux OS on your mobile devices. While it’s the lucky Galaxy Nexus owners who will be getting the first taste of the fully-functional OS, they are still waiting for a release by Canonical. However, what you can have for now is Ubuntu’s vertical app switcher/launcher on any device running Android 2.2 Froyo or higher, thanks to the brand new app called Unity Launcher. Resembling the looks and functionality of Ubuntu’s standard app switcher, Unity Launcher is a third-party customizable multitasking and app switching solution for Android that lets you switch back and forth between your favorite apps form anywhere in the OS by simply swiping in from the left edge of your device’s screen.

While Unity Launcher works almost exactly like most of the multitasking solutions we have already seen in the recent past, its specialty remains in the way it tries to emulate the original app switcher of Ubuntu. It comprises a vertically scrollable list filled with shortcuts to as many of your favorite Android apps as you want. Apps are displayed on their semi-translucent tiles, along with their respective titles. You can bring up this list by simply swiping in from the dedicated edge of your device’s screen, giving you universal access to your favorite apps from anywhere in the OS, regardless of the app you are currently running. The list automatically disappears from the scene after a few seconds of bringing it up.

To get started with the app, just launch it by tapping the Unity Launcher icon in the app drawer. From the app’s solitary home screen, you can trigger its services, pin your favorite apps to its switch list, and tinker with the various layout settings it has to offer.

Using the various available options, you can adjust the width of the interactive area, alter the list’s visibility timeout, and personalize the list’s show/hide animation delay. Moreover, you have the option to set the launcher’s gravity, background color and icon background/tile. That’s not all – there is also the option to show/hide app titles, and modify the background color of the region where app names are displayed.

Unity Launcher is available in the Play Store as both free and $0.99 variants. The free version only allows you to pin your favorite apps to the switch list, whereas all the UI tweaks and other customizations are available in the paid variant. Download links to both versions are provided below.

Leaked Images out of – 5th generation iPad

new_ipad_9to5mac_1020_large_verge_medium_landscape

Recent rumors indicate that Apple might soon be adding a 128GB iPad to its current line— and now we’re getting what may be our first look at the back of Cupertino’s next-gen tablet. The image appears to line up with a rumor published by Macotakara back in December, which stated that a 5th-generation iPad, bearing the same stylistic flourishes as the mini, would debut in March of 2013.

That said, it should be noted that there are some questions about the image. The name “iPad” itself appears to be either smudged or partially-wiped off the device — though we’ve seen early Apple leaks before that have featured smudged or missing printing. In any case, the pictured part does appears to be in line with current expectations, and if the final 5th-generation iPad proves to look like what’s pictured above, we’d have to conclude that Apple’s not having any further success in its efforts to double down on product secrecy.

Ubuntu Phone: Reviewed!

So basically, this thing came out in CES 2013. First of all Ubuntu Phone is not a hardware model but a Operating System which falls under software categories. While using it I did find some bugs and all that but guys, it’s the totally Pre-Alpha version of it so it will develop, just wait for it.

The best things we can say is that it is really unique from other MobileOSs’. There is Windows Phone, iOS, Android, Symbian etc. but this one – I gotta say is really unique.

The first thing you notice when you look at the home screen will be the user interface. It’s really nice, smooth and fluid. Here is a video for explaining the Ubuntu phone in depth.

IN EVERY DUAL-CORE PHONE,

THERE’S A PC TRYING TO GET OUT.

Another thing that was really fascinating was that if you connect it with your television or any other viewing source – What you view is not your mobile phone OS but it will be the Ubuntu operating system. The full whole version of Ubuntu. Whatever features Ubuntu for computers has is there in the mobile OS, so yeah.


Ubuntu will be ready for smartphones at retail in Q4 2013.

Point your browser to the second source to sign up to the new dev channel.
