WhatsApp iOS 7 update shown off in video

Screen-Shot-2013-11-21-at-15.37.21

WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps ever launched on iOS. It has millions of users, and as such, I’ve always felt the developers and designers have been resting on their laurels and not updating the look/feel/UX often enough. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great service and connects many people across the globe, but someone really needs to set a fire under their developers’ backsides. iOS 7 has been available to devs since late Spring this year, and it’s still not updated its app to fit in with the new software.

I did get my hopes up a little too far I feel, as I assumed taking this long would mean the app would be completely revamped. I was wrong. A leaked video (picked up by Christian Zibreg at iDB) shows off the upcoming user interface, and – apart from taking many design cues from iOS 7 – it looks pretty much the same as it always has, and there are no new notable features. (For your info, it’s all narrated in German.)

We have no information on when it’s going to land on the App Store, but, it should be fairly soon, given the “finished” look of the app in the video.

Video leaks of “MOGA Ace Power” gamepad [video]

Remember that MOGA gamepad that leaked in a few pictures from @evleaks a few days ago? Well now a video of it has leaked and it shows off the entire device, including the fact that it will have a built in battery to charge the device while you are playing games. The name was also revealed to be the “MOGA Ace Power” and will include a full set of buttons including R1/2 buttons and L1/2 buttons. Overall, it looks really awesome, and I’m sure that it will be popular.

I’m not a very big gamer, however I may become more so if I had something like this to make gaming better. I especially love the portable mindset that went behind this, as you can open and close it so that it fits in your pocket or backpack/etc easier. That makes something like this very attractive to people that will like to play games while on-the-go, which is when I believe many people would like to use these. Or, it also works perfect for if you are just sitting at theme. Of course, the addition of a built in battery is great as well, and hopefully other companies pick up on that.
