What Animated Transition Effect Can We Use in iOs App?

I'm working on an iOs app (a wordy reference work). We've enabled a user to shortcut between sections via left/right swiping, and want to add an animated transition effect - something prefab we can simply plug in, as we don't have time to cook something up from scratch. [more inside]

Need to record 8 hours of continuous video, on the cheap

I need to record an upcoming training classroom session from start to finish. All the videocameras I see, as well as iDevice apps that I can find, record in high def and can't store nearly enough footage. Low quality video, akin to a 1990s camcorder, is a tradeoff I'm willing to accept. I need the 8 hours to run continuously - no pauses to change storage cards or upload content in order to create space for more filming. Is there an app that will do this? If not, what's the least expensive solution?

My iPad has stopped showing images in Safari. Why?

About four days ago, my iPad stopped showing images in web pages--there's either a grayed out box where they should be or they're just missing. All the text loads fine, it really just looks like image resources are deciding not to load. This happens in Safari, and in Safari view controller views like Tweetbot (so it's Webkit-wide?) Force quit Safari, restarted, still broken. Upgraded it from 9.2 to 9.3.1 this morning, and same thing. Did I toggle some setting inadvertently? Or is this a bug, and if so, how do I fix it?

The next chapters in Monument Valley, or another similar game

Trying to recall an obscure audio ios app involving cartoon characters

Pomodoro-style apps that are more gamified

Why does my iPhone 6S keep hanging up on me?

I love my new iPhone 6S, but I have been experiencing an annoying issue in voice calls. The call randomly cuts out - it's as if my face is coming in contact with the red "end call" icon. I understand that all iPhones from the start have had a "proximity sensor" to prevent this issue, but it seems as if this sensor isn't doing its job. I never had this issue with my previous two iPhones. The software (iOS 9.2) is up to date as of today. Is there a setting I forgot about, or should I take it back to Apple? [more inside]

What is the specific process that is draining my iPhone's cellular data?

Since late October/early November, my iPhone 6s (128 GB Verizon, not jailbroken) has been ruthlessly leaking cellular data for no obvious reason.

How can I determine specifically what “documents” and/or “data” is causing the data leak? [more inside]

How to use ios Duet display as primary display for my PC on a stick?

Hi all, I have a Lenovo 'PC on a stick'. It runs windows 10 and I would like to use my iPad as a primary display for it using the Duet app on iOS but it seems like in order to connect you have to go in and activate Duet on the PC first - which is a sort of catch 22 because I need a display in order to do that. Any ideas on how I could make Duet 'activate' as soon as the PC boots up and connect to the app on my ipad?

Wishlist / group registry app recommendations?

It's that time of year when my family and I trade lists of things we could get for one another if we haven't already found something on our own.

Until of course someone (Mom) replies on the wrong thread, and spills the beans. ;) [more inside]

Vocabulary Builder: App/hack for iOS

I'm a fan of the vocabulary builder feature on Kindle that stores a list, with definitions, of words looked up while reading. Is there an equivalent for iPhone for web? The vocab builder apps all seem to teach new words; I'm not averse to copying and pasting into the app, as long as it keeps history of searches. Open to any non-app suggestions too. My temporary solution of dumping words + definitions into Notes is not working so well.

Video Presentation App With Automatic Pauses

Is there an iOS app that lets you build pauses into a video's playback at specific points? Here's my dream scenario: a video begins playing on the iPad until it hits the first pause point, like at 0:07. The video stays paused there until the user next taps the screen, at which point it plays until the next pause point, and waits there. Is there anything out there like that?
