Wow! @Twitter Updates iPhone App

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

iPhone and Android users are waking up to a brand new Twitter application that will make it easier for users to find and search for new information.  We all know mobile is becoming the place to be and Twitter finally woke up and smelled the coffee.  We’re not saying they were behind as it’s tough to keep up these days! iPhone owners can download the new app from the App Store for free.

Are you familiar with the Discover Tab on the web version of Twitter.com? If so, you’ll be happy to know you can now find it on your smartphone as well. Like the web version, the Discover tab will help you find the tweeps that have retweeted your content or favorited you.  You can also find out who your followers are following and or adding to lists too. Pretty cool right?

Additionally, Twitter upgraded its search function to enable users to see a variety of suggestions for different spellings or related search terms.  This will help all of the poor spellers across the globe!

Previously, Sprint announced it would continue to offer these types of plans as it rolled out its first LTE-devices.  Some thought this would include the highly anticipated iPhone but now it’s confirmed:

“If the next iteration of the iPhone arrives with LTE, Sprint will continue to offer a no-strings unlimited plan, CEO Dan Hesse told CNET. The company is already sticking with unlimited for its first batch of LTE phones, but it was unclear whether the offer would apply to next iPhone.

“I’m not anticipating the unlimited plan would change by that point,” he said. “That’s our distinctive differentiator.”

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

“The most amazing quarter that Apple has ever had.” -Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer

Apple can thank the new iPad, as well as strong sales of both the iPhone and Mac, for nearly doubling its profit for the fiscal second quarter.

Did you happen to catch the webcast on Apple’s second quarter earnings we talked about previously? Apple executives proudly announced to the world their financial results for the second quarter of 2012.  Hold on to your cotton socks, I’m going to throw some big numbers at you!

Apple posted a revenue of $39.2 billion and a net quarterly profit of $11.6 billion i.e. $12.8 per diluted share. Last year, during the same quarter, the company had a revenue of $24.7 billion and a net quarterly profit of $6 billion i.e. $6.4 per diluted share Overall, the gross margin was 47.4 percent during the current quarter while last year the gross margin was 41.4 percent.  Interestingly, international sales made up 64 percent of 2012’s second quarter.

How To Re-Download Apps On Your iPad in 5 Easy Steps

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

The best thing about having an iPad is that you get to do whatever the heck you want with and to it. If you want a baby blue Smart Cover for it then you can deck out your iPad with a baby blue Smart Cover. If you want to download nothing but sports apps such as FanCake or NBC Sports Talk then you go on right ahead and litter your iPad screens with nothing but sports apps; it’s your iPad and you get to make the rules.

However, with that power comes great responsibility, so try not to go too app downloading crazy or you very well may end up with no free hard drive space! And, yes, that can happen even on a 64GB iPad. We know many iPad users that have been in that situation and were forced to delete an app off their iPad to make room for a newer app that they must have.

Whether you have to delete an app off of your iPad because you need more space to download a different app or you found that a certain app you downloaded isn’t what you were looking for you always have the option to re-download that app at a later date; even if you paid for it.  This is especially important if you want to take advantage of all of the 13 beautiful apps for your new iPad Retina display

How To Get A White iPhone 4S For Free… Kind Of…

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

iHospital White iPhone 4sIf you own a white iPhone 4 that has been giving you some difficulties and you’ve been thinking about trading in your older Apple iPhone model for the newer iPhone 4S model you might not have to spend the extra money that usually goes with such a purchase.

How? There have been reports coming out, specifically from 9to5Mac, about how some Apple Store Genius Bars are accepting the white iPhone 4 in exchange for the iPhone 4S, and you don’t have to pay for an upgrade fee or anything like that.

All you have to do is make sure that your iPhone 4 is under warranty and head on down to your nearest Apple Store Genius Bar to see if they are one of the of Genius Bars partaking in the iPhone exchange program.

Your damaged iPhone 4 will be exchanged for a refurbished iPhone 4S but even if it’s a refurbished model that you get in return you’re still going to wind up with an iPhone that has a better camera, the A5 chip and, whether you like it or not, Siri.

It’s kind of a no-brainer to upgrade to a better all around iPhone when given the opportunity and it’s an even easier slam dunk decision to make when the upgrade won’t cost you a single penny more.

The reason why Apple is putting on such an exchange program is that some of their Apple Stores are low in white iPhone 4 supply and they need to re-stock their shelves any way they can and this is one option that will please many white iPhone 4 owners who want to own the shiner iPhone 4S.

Of course not all Apple Stores need more stock of the white iPhone 4 so don’t go into your local Apple Store expecting to be handed a brand new iPhone 4S, or even worse, purposely damage your white iPhone 4 thinking you’re automatically guaranteed an iPhone 4S for it.

If you have a warrantied white iPhone 4 that is defective in some capacity then make your way to your local Apple Store to see if you can get in on this upgrade program and if you do end up with an iPhone 4S you should then head on down to a nearby iHospital location to thank us for this tip and get a new screen protector placed on your new iPhone 4S by one of our trusted D.i.D. Doctor of iDevices.
