Wikihood For Android: Location-Based Browsing Of Wikipedia Content

Official Kicksend App For Android & iPhone Lets You Batch Share Files & Photos Of All Sizes

Sharing files via email from your iOS device isn't all that convenient. By default, there is no attach option in the iPhone or iPad native Mail client. You can only email files from within other apps. In addition, the stock Mail app places restrictions on the size and number of attached files (for instance, you can attach a maximum of five photos to a single mail). However, now that file sharing web service Kicksend has released its client to the iTunes App Store, users can enjoy sharing files and photos without any limitations on size and number.

How To Delete Individual Photos From iCloud Photo Stream In iOS 5.1 Beta 2

iCloud is a feature in iOS which Apple is really proud of, as is evident from the recent iPhone and iPad ads. Despite being such a useful service, iCloud has its drawbacks as well. There have been many horror stories of people unintentionally sharing personal photos over the cloud, which were meant to be kept private for good. This is for the sole reason that once you have Photo Stream turned on, every photo you snap using your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch will be automatically shared across all the devices where your iCloud account is set up. If you fall victim to such a scenario, there is no way of deleting individual photos in Photo Stream, and you will have to remove the whole collection to get rid of one photo. However, with the latest version of iOS in its second beta testing phase, things are looking positive, as now individual photos can be deleted in iOS 5.1 beta 2. Having said that, this does not mean that there is some plain Delete button in clear view in the Photo Stream, you still need to know exactly what you are doing in order to get rid of photos.
