10 Apps Apple Just Killed With iOS 5

apple we just killed your app

Apple just announced iOS 5, which includes a variety of new features, apps, and services.

Among these, apps like Notification centre or iMessage completely destroy some of the most popular third party apps out there.

We’ve put together a list of the third party apps that will likely see their sales crash and burn once iOS is released this fall.

title=”WhatsApp is the most popular BBM-like messenger for iPhone”
content=”WhatsApp has been one of the most popular iOS messaging apps for a while because it let you message in real time with friends.

You can see delivery receipts, read receipts, typing notifications, and more. It uses push notifications.

Now, it’s all included in iMessage, and brand new real time messaging app for iOS.

One thing WhatsApp still has, however, is cross-platform messaging. There are no plans for iMessage to become an open protocol that other operating systems could use.”

content=”Boxcar is a great app for keeping track of all of your notifications.

Notification centre for iOS 5 won’t have customisable alerts for different email accounts and services, but it does most things the average user needs (anything that uses push notifications).

Notification centre brings together all of your push notifications, missed calls and texts, and emails in one easy to access notifications screen you can drag down from the top of your screen.”

title=”LockInfo is a very popular jailbreak app for handling lock screen notifications”
content=”We still love LockInfo (a jailbreak app available in Cydia) for showing our calendar on our lock screen and for using QuickReply to respond to texts, but iOS 5’s new lock screen and notifications alerts look amazing.

With iOS 5, you’ll have access to all of your alerts and notifications straight from your home screen. Slide your finger along a notification to unlock your phone straight into that app.

LockInfo’s creator just tweeted, ‘Well I’m just going to have to make LockInfo better now.'”

iOS 5’s new Reading List and Reader features duplicate this functionality. Save web pages to read later, access them across all of your devices, and strip away ads for a streamlined reading experience.”

Wi-Fi Sync is very simple to use, but iOS 5 will do it better, and for free.”

content=”SnapTap is only a dollar to download in Cydia’s app store, but it will be dead when iOS 5 comes out.

SnapTap allows you to take a picture by using your volume button, but often it changes the volume when pressed as well.

iOS 5 now allows you to take a picture from your lock screen, and even by pressing the volume up button.

permalink=”google-sync-9″
title=”Google Sync”
content=”Google Sync isn’t an app, per se, but it is a service that helps you keep you contacts, emails, and calendars in Sync.

Previously, Google Sync competed with the $99.99 MobileMe, but now, MobileMe has become iCloud, and iCloud is free.

Since iCloud is built by Apple (and since Google Sync) can be buggy, we’re looking forward to giving iCloud a shot for managing our contacts and calendars. Also, iCloud will single-handedly back up all your apps, books, and documents too.

Mobile Safari now has tabbed browsing, Reader for easy reading, and Reading List for saving things to read later.”
