Anova Culinary Bluetooth Precision Cooker for sous-vide cooking works with iPhone, on sale $139 (reg. $179)

Image showing Anova Precision Cooker inside a pot

Learning chefs that want to get a start on cooking sous-vide and get restaurant quality results, take a look at Amazon’s Gold Box deal today with the Anova Culinary Bluetooth Precision Cooker currently available at $139 (normally $179). Anova’s precision cooker clamps to the side of any deep pot or tank and continuously circulates the water inside to ensure that food is cooked evenly throughout. Connect the Anova to an iPhone via Bluetooth, and you can then wirelessly control and monitor food easily, even finding new recipes to use.

With sous-vide cooking, preparing foods at a consistent temperature is key. Pairing the Anova Culinary Bluetooth Precision Cooker with the Anova Culinary iOS app allows users to set it and forget, knowing that the food will be cooked perfectly each time. No more worrying about keeping an eye out on the food in the oven, or overcooking food on accident.

The Anova Culinary Bluetooth Precision Cooker is on sale today only at $139 and includes Prime shipping. The Anova Culinary iOS app is available for free from the App Store and is compatible with iPhones and iPads running iOS 7.0 or later.

Final Fantasy IX is now available for download on iOS w/ special launch pricing

Final Fantasy IX-6

From 9to5Toys.com:

Late last year, Square Enix announced that a re-releases of Final Fantasy IX would be coming to iOS, Android and PC. At the time, there was no specific word as to when North American gamers would actually get their hands on it. However, this morning we noticed a listing for the iOS version of the game go live on the App Store.

While the game is currently listed at $16.99, it appears as though it will be 20% off from February 10th to February 21st. At this point, it is hard to tell whether or not the current $17 price tag reflects the discount or not, especially considering Square’s tendency for premium mobile pricing, but it most likely does. Nonetheless, if you’re worried about it, check back with this post tomorrow morning for updated pricing data.

Just before we get into the game itself, remember, this thing is a beast: “This application takes up around 4GB of memory. Over 8GB of free space is required to download it”.

The game remains intact outside of added achievements, additional game modes like no encounter/high speed and autosave along with “High-definition movies and character models.” Here’s a quick look at what to expect from the story and gameplay features:

Zidane and the Tantalus Theater Troupe have kidnapped Princess Garnet, the heir of Alexandria. To their surprise, however, the princess herself yearned to escape the castle. Through a series of unusual circumstances, she and her personal guard, Steiner, fall in with Zidane and set out on an incredible journey. Meeting unforgettable characters like Vivi and Quina along the way, they learn about themselves, the secrets of the Crystal, and a malevolent force that threatens to destroy their world.

Abilities

Learn new abilities by equipping items.

When fully mastered, these abilities can be used even without equipping items, allowing for nearly endless customization options.

Trance

Fill your Trance gauge as you sustain hits in battle.

When fully charged, your characters will enter Trance mode, granting them powerful new skills!

Synthesis

Never let items go to waste. Combine two items or pieces of equipment together and make better, stronger items!

Minigames

Whether it’s Chocobo Hot and Cold, Jump Rope, or Tetra Master, there are plenty of minigames to enjoy when you’re not off saving the world. You can even earn special item rewards!

iOS Universal: Final Fantasy IX: $17 (Just released)

Track Your Internet Connection in the New York Subway With This App

Apple Music refuseniks seemingly head to Spotify, as app hits #1 spot in U.S. App Store

Spotify

Apple Music appears to be off to a strong start in terms of paying subscribers, but as the old adage has it, you can’t please all of the people all of the time. A decent chunk of those who have opted not to pay for Apple Music appear to have headed instead to SpotifyTechCrunch notes that Spotify’s iOS app has taken the top grossing spot in Apple’s U.S. App Store for the first time ever.

Spotify was quietly hitting a milestone of its own. The company’s music streaming app just moved into the No. 1 position on the iPhone App Store’s “Top Grossing” charts for the first time in the US. Previously, according to data from App Annie, the highest rank Spotify saw on the “Top Grossing” charts stateside was No. 3, which it hit earlier this year and maintained in September.

When we polled 9to5Mac readers, 19.5% of you said that you would be switching to Spotify instead of paying for Apple Music.

With Apple hot on defending customer privacy, Spotify did hit a bit of a sticky moment back in August, when it was forced to clarify its new privacy policy, which appeared to allow the service to share personal information. CEO Daniel Ek apologized for the lack of clarity previously, and sought to reassure customers that data is used only to improve the Spotify service and use of customer data is opt-in.

Emerging markets see Android pushing further ahead in app downloads, but iOS increases revenue lead

apps-main

The latest data from App Annie shows that Android has pushed further ahead in the number of apps downloaded worldwide, but iOS has increased its lead in app revenue.

Downloads in India and Southeast Asia in particular saw Android opening up its download lead from 85% in Q2 to 90% in Q3 2015, but that boost in low-cost handsets did nothing for app revenues. iOS apps increased their revenue lead from 70% to 80% in the last quarter … 

iOS and Google Play continued to show diverging growth patterns in Q3 2015. Google Play expanded its download lead over iOS thanks to first-time smartphone users in emerging markets like India and Southeast Asia. Meanwhile, iOS extended its revenue lead over Google Play thanks to its continued strength in another Asian market: China.

apps

Unsurprisingly, China has been a particularly important market for iOS apps, now seeing more downloaded than in the USA, with revenue also seeing strong growth.

In the USA, the most popular iOS app categories measured by time spent using them are social networking, photo & video, utilities and games, with music rounding out the top 5 on the iPhone while travel makes the #5 slot on the iPad.

categories

It was predicted earlier this year that both Apple and Google would see their app store revenues doubling within four years.

Our Favorite Android, iOS, and Windows Phone Apps of the Week

Welcome to another installment of sweet new apps. In this week’s batch we’ve got an app that takes the concept of live video streaming to the next level, a social app that lets you spout off your opinion as much as you’d like, and more. Without further ado, let’s dig in.

Getting your app Featured in the App Store may not be good news, suggests noted startup investor

featured-app

If you submit your brand new app to Apple and they offer to make it a featured app when it hits the the App Store, you might think you’d have to be crazy to refuse. But startup investor M.G. Siegler suggests in a Medium post that you may want to think twice.

If you’re not familiar with the name, Siegler is a guy who ought to know a thing or two about startups. He’s a general partner at Google Ventures, was a founding partner of TechCrunch and has worked with startups since 2005.

There are two problems with having your app get a lot of exposure at launch, he argues. First, if your app is free, you may get the downloads but not the revenue.

Talking to a number of early stage companies that have been featured at launch recently, they all have similar stories: a ton of downloads that resulted in very few users that actually stuck around.

Second, whether free or paid, brand new apps are rarely ready for the big time – and if you leave people disappointed with version 1.0 of your app, you may not get a second chance.

So you’re featured and get all those downloads. Lots of high fives that Thursday afternoon. Come Thursday evening, the first realization sets in: while some of those downloads are converting into initial users, they’re having all sorts of issues actually using your app. Bugs are exposed not by flashlight, but by sunbeam.

The result is that you lose most of those initial users, plus they bad-mouth you and your app.

Of course, Siegler is a guy in a position to help startups get that much-needed publicity later – whereas a lone developer who is lucky enough to catch Apple’s eye at launch may not get a second chance. But if nothing else, it does show the importance of testing your app to death before launch, and getting feedback from as many beta users as possible.

That and not spending too much money on champagne if Apple offers to feature your app, as the evidence shows that fame and fortune may not necessarily follow.
