2014 had been the year of the iPhone 6 Plus, Apple Watch and of course Apple Pay. The payment gateway of Apple was born with the aim of overcoming existing and become once and for all a reliable standard. Nothing from the United States, the first country to accept payments for Apple Pay, get good data acceptance by merchants and user feedback that virtually not reported any failures. While it appears that Apple Pay in Europe will be a reality in the first half of 2015, at least in the UK where several banks are negotiating with Apple to accept their payment platform.
Apple in the world goes to two (or more) speed: United States first and the other countries later, although in recent years many countries in Europe and Asia have also been included among the first places to receive new products from the Cupertino company. In this case it is Apple Pay, the payment gateway from Apple like iTunes Radio, in its initial stage has been released only in the United States.
But this seems it will only briefly. From The Telegraph reports that the company would already be in negotiations with British banks to facilitate payment gateway between accounts of its users and ultimately, the Apple device with NFC used to pay.
Obviously this has never been easy since it appears that banks feel how a technology company they are removing their cake. In some major banks of Europe have announced days after submission of Apple Pay to continue investing in their own development. A policy that makes the arrival of Apple Pay in Europe is complicated but as in the United States, a reality.Yes, have to wait a little longer for the payment gateway reaching other countries of the old continent but it appears that 2015 will be the year of Apple Pay in Europe.
Nostalgia made application. At this time, iTunes and the App Store are closed for holidays making it virtually impossible for the reviewers of the company can roll back applications that bypass some of the filters as we have seen in past Christmases. This year, it seemed a simple file management application has proved a NES emulator for iOS also allow us to run Super Nintendo video games.
Apple have made such a strain. Year after year at this time the developers try to pass their applications before the close of iTunes apps store and company. In this case has been Floppy Cloud which has been all eyes with an application that hides much more than it is. Firstly because only unite with logging into Dropbox we can execute different ROMs NES and SMC (Super Nintendo), two of the most mythical of the big Japanese company consoles.Obviously the emulator is hidden because having risen as such to the App Store reviewers have not accepted an emulator that contravene the rules of the store itself plus some rights by copyright Nintendo.
Undoubtedly, very smart of its developers movement and a whole Christmas gift to us all. We strongly link to download the application before recommend the company to work is put and delete this NES emulator for iOS as happened with Unblock and Gridlee in previous years.
Floppy Cloud is available only in English even has a fully functional version for iPad. Remember that once you download it, please make a backup of the application in any other way than iTunes because once gone, can not return to download because it will disappear from Apple’s servers.
