International television network A&E has enabled live streaming for two of its most popular channels — A&E and History — through their apps for Apple’s iPad. Users will still be able to access on-demand content including clips and full episodes of past shows.
A cable subscription is required to watch the channels’ live streams. Users will need to authenticate with their cable company, and A&E says the streams are only available to viewers in the United States for now.
The more you use Office on your desktop or laptop, and the closer your ties to Microsoft’s ecosystem, the more you’ll love Office on your iPad. Just remember: it’s a companion to the full-blown Office apps, not a replacement for them.
Analyst Sterne Agee said the game will bring in $30 million in revenue this year, even though it’s available free of charge in the App Store, Business Insider reports. Like other fermium games, Hearthstone comes with in-app purchases which will give users faster access to additional cards – card packs can be purchased using gold won in-game following battles, and after completing quests.
Word, Excel, PowerPoint for iPad are free to download – Microsoft says it’s been downloaded more than 12 million times – but requires an Office 365 subscription (starting from $89/year) to edit, create and save documents.
Sadly, Word hits a wall if you want to print anything: none of the Office for iPad apps work with Apple’s AirPrint wireless printing technology. This is a crippling Achilles heel to an otherwise towering app.
