Apple’s slow App Store process has a silver lining

15 Apps That Show Off the iPhone’s Biggest New Feature.

SAN FRANCISCO—Apple’s reshuffling of its senior management included a new head of its App Store, the heart of its app ecosystem and the source of griping from some developers. The complaints focus on the App Store for Mac’s review process, which some say is too slow and cumbersome. “While a little Draconian, it’s helpful to keep a standard of quality across the apps. It’s a little frustrating sometimes, but overall it ends up with a much more consistent user experience,” said Jeff McConathy, vice president of consumer engineering for real estate service Trulia, which has had an Apple mobile app since 2008 (It doesn’t have an app for Macs, instead directing users to its website.) Apple has every reason to keep its developers happy. Right now, if you’re considering an Android smartphone, you have two options: a small-sized handset that doesn’t perform very well, or a large-sized handset with all the bells and whistles. Seriously, it’s ridiculously difficult to get a small Android smartphone that will give you a great camera, excellent battery life, lag-free performance, and a vibrant high-def screen.

Holding your finger down on a recipe will launch a preview window that shows you how long the dish takes to make and how difficult it is before you commit to reading the whole recipe. Apple explains on its website: “Since you don’t have to show your credit or debit card, you never reveal your name, card number or security code to the cashier when you pay in a shop. Now, that’s a really good phone, but let’s not kid ourselves, it can’t match up to the iPhone 5s on multiple fronts: camera, battery life, and performance. Ticketmaster wants to eliminate the hassle of digging around in an app, loading a webpage, or retrieving an email when you need to flash your ticket at the door. The biggest bottleneck you’ll find is in the RAM, which can prove to be insufficient if you’re a power user, especially while browsing several tabs or if you are doing something while having multiple Facebook Messenger conversations (that app really eats up your available resources!).

Apple has now decided that 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch are the two new device sizes they want to support, so third-party accessory makers will concentrate on making cases, speaker docks, and other devices for those sizes; not on the now-defunct 4-inch size. In Bandit’s Shark Showdown!, players are tasked with out-swimming various foes, which can include various types of sea life from small fish to large sharks. The shortcut tells the app to open to a new blank tweet rather than the app’s home feed, which can be helpful for those who need to get thoughts out quickly. The Quick Shortcuts menu makes it easy to find things nearby, like activities, restaurants, and hotels, without having to sift through TripAdvisor’s app. iMaschine 2 is one of few apps that showcase how 3D Touch can be used for creating music on the go.

The app is essentially meant to turn your iPhone or iPad into a full-blown solution for music production, but its 3DTouch shortcuts are particularly useful.
