WWDC, every Apple fangirl's favorite event of the year for the slew of news Apple unveils, kicks off in less than a week. Before festivities even begin, Apple's latest release, a free app to navigate the conference, may also serve as a clue on what to expect from the upcoming updates to iOS 7. Registered Apple developers can sign in to the app for maps of the venue, Moscone West in San Francisco; watch sessions and keynotes; and organize their event schedule. Basic, but absolutely handy for attendees.
What the app shows rather than says could be the rumored "black, white, and flat all over" look coming to iOS 7. Similar to recent design we've seen in Google Now and Windows 8, the WWDC app emphasizes clean lines, a bright white interface, and less-rounded corners galore.
We'll have to wait until the June 10 keynote to see exactly what Apple has in store for its mobile operating system, but if this is a sign of what's to come, then we're fans. Would you like iOS 7 have a similar feel to the WWDC app?
Beware the inbox: it's a digital beast that requires constant care — and it's dangerous if left unattended. Email piles up fast (and furiously), and sorting through all of those messages can be a huge time commitment unless, of course, you have the new Gmail, which comes with smart tabs that categorizes email for you.
Google has given an old favorite a new design that's meant to streamline your inbox experience across all devices, on the web and on mobile. There are five types of smart tabs: Primary (the email you actually want to read), Social, Promotions, Forums, and Updates. Click the image below to preview the tabs up close.
As email comes in, flag certain senders to appear in the tabs of your choice and star messages you want to show up under Primary. Moving email manually between tabs is as simple as dragging and dropping. Google is rolling out the new inbox "gradually," but early adopters should keep an eye on the gear menu, where a "Configure inbox" option will appear once the new inbox is ready for their account.
Google's emessaging service is becoming the product that ties all of Google's many services (Wallet, Drive, Calendar, etc.) together. At the I/O developer conference, the company announced that quick actions and sending money via Google Wallet would roll out soon, and the ability to search for Google documents, calendar events, and more right from the Gmail search bar should be available for all US users now.
What do you think of the new Gmail tabs: useful? Or is it more trouble than it's worth?
Images alone don't tell the whole story, which is why our new favorite download is ThingLink (free), an app for iPhone and iPad that lets mobile photographers create visual, interactive pictures on the go.
Snap a photo of your garden, use text tags to identify each plant, or embed the song you and yours danced to at your wedding right into an image . . . there are so many possibilities!
Tag people's Twitter handles, embed YouTube videos, or add text to different parts of a photo. ThingLink automatically creates an embed code and a link to share or republish to a blog.
Teachers may find the service especially useful for making curriculum more interactive. Imagine using ThingLink to make a historical image reveal essential facts or vocab terms. Embed videos and links into images for further discovery and investigation.

Craigslist is a little too big and impersonal for some stuff, like cherished books, job opportunities, or moving help. Bondsy (free) is an iOS app that takes the concept of Craigslist and applies it to a much smaller network — your personal network — making trading or selling your own items to friends much more intimate and direct.
Bondsy lists items in an Instagram-like format. A square-shaped photo of your listing appears with tags and comments, the opportunity to share the post with someone else, and the option to repost the listing to your other friends or friends of friends.
It could be dance lessons, babysitting, concert tickets, or really, whatever you have to offer. The app allows you to tap into your personal network and makes selling or trading things online much more comfortable.
