This Week on iPhone-Developers…

Every week we bring you a small small glimpse of our sister site, iphone-developers.com. The site is rapidly growing in popularity and as such, we want to make sure that if you are an Apple user, that you get your i-fix even when you are on XDA. Without further ado, here is this week’s story from iPD:

iOS Bug Might Keep You From Getting To Work On Time

For those of you that, like me, woke up and wondered why some of your clocks were an hour off, today marked the “Fall Back” portion of Daylight Savings Time in the US, where clocks everywhere were officially screwed up.

Though my iPhone did get the memo, it appears that some of my clocks, and more importantly, my iPhone alarm, did not, going off an hour later than it should have. So what’s up? Is this an epidemic or is it a plot to keep you from catching the day’s NFL games on time?

It turns out that it’s an iOS bug, one that fails to adjust the time on your phone’s alarm to account for the rolled back time. Apparently, iPhone alarms, unless fixed, will go off an hour later than the official time, which is sure to cause chaos this coming Monday.

How do you fix it? Simple: delete your recurring alarms, and then set them up again. That’s it.

Or, you can be like this guy and show up late, missing key meetings, and then try to explain it to your boss. Yeah, you don’t want to be that guy.

Though I’ve yet to learn if this bug is iOS 3 or 4 specific, Apple has confirmed that the bug exists and a patch will be added to 4.2, which is soon to be released.

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
