A few time ago when Apple officially announced the brand new iPhone 4S, has also revealed the new AppleCare+ program for iOS devices available for only $99.
The AppleCare+ program was made to extend the repair coverage and technical support to two years, allowing the customer two instances of repair work on a handset damaged due to handling at a rate of $49 each. The terms and condition for obtaining this type of service was that it could only be bought at the time of the phone purchase, which meant allowing to purchase AppleCare+ through November 14th but it appears that those who pre-order the device now it will have enough time until December 15th to sign up for AppleCare+ protection.
Apple’s site offers AppleCare+ within 30 days of the iPhone purchase, but if you’re planning on going away you’ll need to either call up Apple directly or make an appointment at your local Apple Genius Bar if you need to have the phone inspected. So, how many of you would like to get the AppleCare+ service on your new iPhone?
Google has finally released the so long waited Gmail App for iOS devices, and brings quite some nice features from which we can mention the push notifications and the ability to search your inbox.
The new app will combine three of the most wanted and needed features, regarding speed, efficiency and touch, that will help you get more productive on the go. The iOS Gmail App that will work with the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch will take full advantage of the touchscreen and notification capabilities of your device.
Unfortunately the app had to deal with some bugs, which broke the notification system and created some error messages when the app was open. Google has already retrieved the app and tries to correct the problem as soon as possible. So, it’s good to know that Google isn’t thinking just about its Android OS and wants to share some of its very useful apps to iOS users, but this time it was kind of mess. They were several users that reported multiple errors, and thought the app was just a wrapper around Google’s Gmail web UI for iOS devices.
What was the problem? It was rushed! That’s all. It’s obvious that they didn’t give to much attention or ensured that the app works well. Hope the final release of Gmail App for iOS wood be a success.
