Apple has just released two new models of IPhone, IPhone 5c and 5S, and they will be on salse on 20 September in Australia. I am really considering to buy an iPhone. We are working hard on building a new iOS app. Currently, we just a iPad as a dev device. I think we need a phone too. Moreover, iPhone 5c and 5S looks cool. I like the blue iPhone 5c. However, I like 5S too. I love the fingerprint recognition system. I do need to type for installing apps, jut use the fingerprint is ok! That is great. Both phones are good. But the key problem is price. 5c is from $739 and 5S is from $869. That costs too much for me.....

I found facebook messenger apps has voice call function. Actually, I believe this function are in there for few months. But recently, I found that accidentally. While I opened a conversation and clicked "i" icon, which is the contact information, then I found there is an option for "free call". Then I tried that in Android. The voice quality is not bad, that is better viber. But the webpage has not this option, that is too bad. This option is not obvious in the app. A lot of friends don't know about that. Anyway, that is a good function to try. That is free and acceptable voice quality.
Few weeks before, I went to westfield carindale. There were a Samsung Roadshow. I have tried the Galaxy Note 8. That is nice, and I like the S Pen too. I can draw and operate the phone by that. Moreover, that is light too. That is cool. But I got Galaxy S3 and iPad Mini, I don't need that at all.
Recently, there is a version of Skype in Android. In this version, the interface is completely re-built! They used the tab layout, they are "Recent","Favorites" and "People". Moreover, the contact list will be your home screen for Skype, rather than old "Main Menu" style. That is more similar with more than IM problem. That is easier to contact the people in your contact. But I had some friends to use Skype as a softphone. They said that is harder to use. Personally, I like the new layout more, that is easier to use. The most of time, I call the people in my skype contact list.
By the way, I found the new version is more stable, but skype is still eating a lot of battery! I found next version can improve this.
The one of great feature in Android is able to change the launcher. I can change the look and feels of the OS. Recently, I downloaded the Launcher8. That converts my Galaxy s3 into a Win Phone 8. The home screen looks 98% with Windows Phone 8. All things are presented in the big tiles style. Moreover, the apps are presented in a big list. That sounds easier to use than the TouchWiz, the pagination style. That is cool! I highly recommend you to try it.
