My brother bought a wifi only iPad and had asked me if we can install an application that can do free sms and calls. I was thinking of how to use those apps knowing that it needs a phone number to register before it can be used and the iPad wifi doesn’t have a SIM card. I tried to search an app that can do the trick and found out that the Viber app can actually be installed in wifi only iPad despite of some hurdles like the incompatibility warning message.

In my previous article I have shared with you some of my disappointments with the new iOS 7 on my old iPhone. Now, I would like to share with you some unexpected or unlikely features I have discovered while patiently playing the new iOS 7 for over a month now with my device.
Clock icon is moving
While in the MRT on my way home, I casually looked on some of the settings of the new iOS and when I came to the clock icon, I have noticed that the icon is showing an updated clock timing and as I stared right thru the new designed icon, my eyes caught that the seconds hand of the clock is actually moving. I have asked some of my associates if they have noticed this but all of them wasn’t able to notice it. I suppose that most of the users are the same. This may not be important to most of you but for me I find it cool when I discovered it.
