If (like me) you are a keen early adopter you may be considering upgrading your iOS device to Apple’s latest (and greatest?) operating system iOS 8. As it’s still only in early BETA stages some apps in the App Store are still somewhat incompatible with the OS. Some have some ‘quirks’ only present on iOS 8, and some refuse to work at all.
Below is a list of applications which have been tested, and proved (currently) not to be working with iOS 8 and the symptoms they display.
If you would like to contribute to this list, please get in touch using the comments field below.
Hootsuite – Application crashes on attempted load WordPress – Application unable to navigate to “Me” tab WhatsApp – Application crashes when trying to get access to message threads
This is a living post, and will be updated as and when un-working apps are discovered.
In an unexpected twist from Zuckerbergs illogical timeline sorting, the latest release of the Facebook app for iOS features a new setting… One that 99.98% of Facebook iOS users have been crying out for!
You can now actually sort your feed by most recent posts! Who’d have thought it.. Finally you don’t have to see what Facebooks algorithm thinks you want to see.
All be it slightly hidden away, under the right hand side menu system, and not at the top of the screen like in past app updates.
Stay tuned for a more in-depth review of the Facebook app and it’s updated features.
After one of the longest cold snaps we have experienced in quite a while it seems to be getting increasingly difficult to guess what the British weather will do next. With the weather starting to warm up and the usual mix of showers and sunshine on the horizon, staying up to date with weather conditions will come in handy when planning what outfit to venture out it. To help you avoid getting caught in any heavy showers I’ve put together a brief collection of the best weather apps currently available for the iPad. You’ll be a professional weather forecaster before you can say cumulonimbus.
This weather app covers all of the U.K. and is very easy to use. The app looks good works well and even offers you advice on how the current weather might affect your body: “An excellent time for reparatory health”, being just one of the pearls of wisdom you will be provided with.
This app is perfect for the rare occasions we are blessed with plentiful amounts of sunshine. The app calculates the safest period of time to stay in the sun according to all skin types, giving you a better impression of what is safe for your individual skin tone. It also provides the UV index for your specific location and boasts a good number of sunbathing tips and advice.
This is Europe’s foremost weather forecast app, and features reports from more than two million locations in up to three-hourly intervals. Coming complete with high resolution maps and radar images you can be confident that any adverse weather conditions won’t take you by surprise.
The Met Office is a highly reliable source of information with the majority of major television networks relying on them for their weather forecasts. This app gives you five day forecasts, a UV forecast and a handy ‘feels-like’ temperature guide that will help definitely you make sensible clothing choices.
Swackett is a different kind of weather app, communicating weather forecasts visually by using ‘peeps’ who always appear appropriately dressed for weather conditions. When it’s cold outside peeps will appear dressed in winter hats or coats, and when it’s sunny the shorts and sunglasses will appear. A fun, fresh and useful weather app, Swackett converts complex weather data to easily understood, visual weather reports suitable for people of any age.
