We've long wondered what the 2013 WWDC logo means. This theory makes sense.

Every week, the editors and writers at iMore carefully select some of our favorite, most useful, most extraordinary apps. This week's selections include a few games, an awesome read-later app, an app for keeping track of movies, a guitar tuner, an app dedicated to a famous classic band, and app that that is sure to increase your typing speed on the iPhone.
I've tried many read it later services and up until last year, I had always used Instapaper. Then when RIL (Read It Later) transformed into Pocket and got a major overhaul, I couldn't stop myself from trying it. And I haven't looked back sense.
Pocket is absolutely gorgeous. Not only that, it's super fast and supports almost any browser and platform you could think of. Not only is there a native iPhone and iPad app, but a Mac one too. And for those who like to save things directly from their browsers, yep, there's support for those too. Even reading on the Pocket website is enjoyable.
The way content is laid out is unique and one of the best I've found so far. If you haven't tried it out yet, it's free so you've got nothing to lose.
Limelight is an iPhone app that helps you keep track of movies, not just those in your collection, but also those that you may have just seen in theaters, as well as those you want to see. Create an account and begin searching for movies and mark whether or not you?ve seen them. Movies will then either be added to your Watched or To Watch lists, which can be shared with other Limelight users as well as your friends, through Twitter, Facebook, iMessage, and email. You can also follow the libraries that other users publish, finding new movies that you want to see by doing so. If you see or own a lot of movies, Limelight is a great way to keep track of and share them all. Check it out on the App Store for $1.99.
If Super Hexagon has taught me anything, it's that I'm a sucker for punishment. Enter the brutally difficult Impossible Road. There are no power-ups, no in-app purchases, and barely any colors or shapes. All you have to do is keep a ball on a downward-spiraling track for as long as possible using left and right tap controls. If you fall off, you've got a moment to land on the track further down, but if you free-fall for too long, you've got to start all over. Players are scored based on how many checkpoints they pass through or skip by falling off the edge and recovering. The high contrast art style and minimalist music keep tension high for the fleeting seconds you manage to stay on the track. If you have any unresolved childhood issues with Rainbow Road from Mario Kart, or have an innate fear of heights to
get over revel in, Impossible Road is a good place to start.
After being away for a couple of months, I cam home and decided I wanted to play a little guitar. I quickly realized that before I could do that, it would certainly need some tuning. For the life of me, I couldn't find my tuner so figured it would be a perfect time to try out some of the tuner apps available on iOS. I download 3-4 and began testing them out, in the end I went with a free (ad-supported) one called Guitar Tuna and well, I'm never paying for a tuner app again. Guitar Tuna is awesome, idiot proof and free. Can't really beat it. If you're looking for a basic and easy to use guitar tuning app, look no further.

Sadly this week saw the passing of The Doors' keyboard player, Ray Manzarek. So, what better way to commemorate than by kicking back listening to their 'Best of' album and checking out the official The Doors app on the iPad.
Pictures, music, videos, lyrics, all here and only the beginning. The Doors app for iPad is filled with content about the band, how they created their sound, and even an exclusive comic that chronicles Jim Morrison's 'Incident' in Miami. A must have for all The Doors fans out there.
Just over a month ago, Text Expander Touch was my pick of the week. Why am I picking it again so soon? Because Smile Software just released Text Expander Touch 2.0.
The basic overall functionality hasn't changed, and everything I used before is still what I use now -- I type in shots bits of text and TE spits out long strings of code or copy. Here's the example I used last time, typing this:
Automagically gets me this:
Twitter: http://twitter.com/imore Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/imorecom Google+: http://www.gplus.to/imore YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/imorevideo
But for the higher level nerds among us, here's what's new:
Fill-in snippets, formatted snippets (including copy and send email actions), "Insert?" menu item for macros, %\ selection range macros, and more.
In other words, the power user just got handed a bunch more power.
I've always been a big Tetris fan, and Tetris Blitz is a new twist to the class game. You have two minutes to clear as many lines as possible, but instead of the traditional gameplay of rotating and dropping each piece, Tetris Blitz gives you options for placement of the pieces. You simply tap the spot you want the piece to go, or cycle through more choices. There are also power-up in Tetris Blitz that help you rack up the points. Tetris Blitz is not traditional Tetris, but I'm enjoying this new, high-paced version.
Now that we've chosen our favorites for the week, we want to hear yours! Did you pick up a killer app, accessory, or game this week? Let us know in the comments below!
It's been another busy week here on iMore, and as we get closer and closer to WWDC 2013 we're starting to see more iOS 7 rumors surface. Also making headlines this week was Yahoo!, who had a pretty busy Monday, Microsoft's future of the Xbox event, oh, and we were treated to an all-new iMore Show! Read on for the recap!
We'll start with Yahoo!, who came out swinging this past Monday. Rumors had been rife that they were preparing a bid to acquire blogging platform Tumblr, and those rumors turned into truth on Monday morning. Yahoo! and Tumblr announced the deal was to take place, and would be worth $1.1 billion in cash. Yahoo! CEO, Marissa Meyer, posted her first blog post on Tumblr that very same morning, proclaiming that "we promise we won't screw it up." Nice touch.
Then, at a press event in New York on Monday evening, Meyer herself took to the stage at the Flickr press event and presented a major overhaul to the popular photography service. The headline items were an all-new, and pretty awesome looking interface, along with a new pricing strategy that sees every single user on a free account receive a full terabyte of storage for their photos. An insane amount of free storage for your photos.
Next it was over to Microsoft to impress, with their Xbox event up at the company's Richmond headquarters. Our buddies from Windows Phone Central provided excellent coverage of the event, but while there was no specific mention of iOS related items, it's hard to deny that we were all pretty impressed. With gestures and speech recognition galore, did Microsoft beat Apple to making the killer Apple TV? Both Derek Kessler and Peter Cohan have written excellent pieces on the Xbox One and how it may fit into our world, so be sure to check them out if you missed them first time around.
Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that excitement is building as we get ever closer to WWDC 2013. We all have things we'd like to see come out of the annual developer conference, but likewise there's things we're pretty sure we will be seeing. One such thing is iOS 7, and this week a couple of rumors surfaced on what to expect. Firstly we heard that Flickr and Vimeo may well be integrated into iOS 7, much the same as Twitter and Facebook currently are. Then we were treated to the latest rumor around Jony Ive's all-new, flatter UI and that it is set to be "black, white and flat all over." Rumors are still just that, rumors, but it does still build up our anticipation ahead of WWDC.
Apple CEO Tim Cook made the trip cross-country this week to appear at a Senate hearing regarding the company's approach to taxes. Chris Umiastowski posted an excellent editorial on the subject that really got the iMore readers engaged, so if you happened to miss that one be sure to give it a read.
Elsewhere this week, Peter Cohan gave us some excellent tips on how to breathe new life into your ageing Mac Pro, well worth reading if, like many, you're clinging onto your Mac Pro until the bitter end. Leanna continued her round up of photography related apps, this week moving onto a great selection for the professional photographer. And, speaking of photography, I just so happened to come across a piece of vintage Apple in the QuickTake 150 digital camera, so I had to share it with you guys. Ally also posted an excellent piece on where to find the best pre-paid deal for your iPhone in the U.S. All well worth a read.
And last, but by no means least, this week saw the first edition of our revamped iMore Show. Rene and Peter were joined by Derek Kessler, our Mobile Nations EiC-at-large, along with Michael Simmons of Flexibits to talk Apple Taxes, the Xbox One, the Mac Pro, apps, accessories and more!
There you have it, the best of iMore for the week. What stood out for you in everything that went on in the last 7 days? What do you still want to comment about? Have at it below!
It’s no surprise that Cydia tweaks receive a lot of glamor and shine from jailbroken iOS users, perhaps more than the apps released on App Store. However, only a certain fraction of those users are able to make the most out of the tweaks as all the features offered by them are rarely used.SubIc0ns is [...]
