iOS 9 Will Delete Apps To Make Room For An Update


Did any of you have trouble updating to iOS 8 because you didn’t have enough storage space left on your iPhone? Well, plenty of people did, and Apple took note. In the upcoming iOS 9, Cupertino has made it possible to temporarily delete apps to make room for the update process. Of course these apps will be re-installed automatically once the update is done, and hopefully any user data along with them.

It’s not a groundbreaking feature, but for any of you frustrated that you weren’t able to take advantage of all the new features in iOS 8, know that this won’t happen for the next iteration of the OS.

Cloak App Helps You Avoid Those You’d Rather Not See

cloak app (620x350)

There are many applications that let you find your friends nearby; Cloak does the exact opposite and gives you the tools to avoid those you’d rather not run into. Created by former Buzzfeed creative director Chris Baker, Cloak lets you tag some of your friends as “undesirables” (say a nasty ex, or that creepy guy at the office that you have no choice but to work with) and then keeps track of their whereabouts through their own check ins and public geo information. If you happen to wander within a preset radius of their known location, Cloak notifies you and gives you the chance to run away.

The tagline is “incognito mode for real life” and we’re kind of really digging the idea. It’s free, although iOS only at the moment.

ForeverNOT Lets You Put a Wager On People’s Relationships


ForeverNot App0

ForeverNOT is one of those cruel but fun apps that you’ll probably still get because of the entertainment factor. Not only does it ask you to judge on whether or not relationships between certain friends will work out, but it also asks you to bet on them as well. In this day and age where some people trader partners and get into X+3 relationships in X months, it kind of makes sense (and justifies your usage of the app, especially when they call you up in the middle of the night to say “I think he’s the one!” after only three weeks of dating.)

If you’re not too keen to put your friends up on the pedestal, then you can always weigh in on celebrity couplings, with one of the most-talked about pairings right now being Kim K and Kanye West.

Send Messages That Self-Destruct With Wickr

Wickr App

Have you ever sent a message that you wished you could take back a few hours or days later? Wickr won’t exactly let you do that (I think few, if any, apps actually allow you to delete a message before it’s been read), but it will allow you to send encrypted messages that expire within a certain time period once they’ve been opened.

Aside from text messages, you’ll be able to send pictures, videos, PDFs, and voice messages with an extra layer of security so that only the message’s intended recipient will be able to read or access it.
