Suggested January 2024 How To Get Free Pokécoins In Pokémon Go On Iphone Or Ipad

I can’t remember when was the last I had thoroughly enjoyed playing any game on my iPhone as much as I have done for about a month. One of the main reasons why I’m so fond of Pokémon Go is that it compels me to walk as much as possible. Jokes apart, I have been able to lose quite a lot of weight and gotten slim ever since I put my hands on this augmented-reality game.

PokéCoins are very important in Pokémon Go. You will be able to buy things such as Incense, Lucky Egg, Poke Balls only if you have PokéCoins.

Take a look at why you must need PokéCoins:

Egg Incubator: Egg Incubator is available for 150 coins

Bag Upgrade: You can get it 200 coins. It will ramp-up your item storage by 50 slots

Pokémon Storage Upgrade: You can grab it for 200 coins

Lucky Egg: One Lucky Egg can be bought for 80 coins, eight Lucky Eggs for 500 coins and 25 for 1250 coins

Lure Module: One Lure Module comes for 100 coins, eight Lure Modules for 680 coins

Poke Balls: You can buy 20 Poke Balls for 100 coins, 100 Poke Balls for 460 coins and 200 for 800 coins

Incense: One Incense is available for 80 coins, eight Incense for 500 coins and 25 for 1250 coins

Since PokéCoins are so precious, you should use them intelligently. You will need to buy them through in-app purchase; if you have run out of them.

$0.99 – 100 coins

$4.99 – 550 coins

$9.99 – 1200 coins

$19.99 – 2500 coins

$39.99 – 5200 coins

$99.99 – 14500 coins

How to Get Free PokéCoins in Pokémon Go on iPhone/iPad

Don’t want to spend money to buy PokéCoins, you can get it for absolutely free. However, you would have to show a lot of not just skill but also the bravery to outsmart your rivals in the Gym fight.

Once you have reached the level five in Pokémon, you would have to join a team and indulge into the thrilling Gym fight. (Assuming you have travelled this far and are all geared up to smash your opponents.) This is where you will win PokéCoins.

Step #1. Starting off, you have to find a gym and then use your superiority to take it down or fortify it to put your Pokémon in the Gym.

Step #2. Based on how many Pokémons you have in the Gym, you would be given an equal number of PokéCoins.

Step #3. To get the free PokéCoins, tap on the Pokeball at the bottom.

Step #4. Tap on Shop in the menu.

Step #5. Next, you will have to tap on the button at the top right corner.

Once in every 21 hours, you will be able to get the PokéCoins. If you don’t have any Gym, you won’t be given any PokéCoins.

You will grab ten coins and 500 Stardust for each Pokémon you have in your Gym. For example, you will earn 50 coins and 2500 Stardust, if you have five Pokémons in five Gyms.

If you succeed in maximizing your expertise, you can even earn up to 100 PokéCoins and 5000 Stardust every 21 hours.

That’s all there is to it!

Initially, you will find a bit difficult to find Pokémon. But using these tips, you would be able to easily catch creatures. (Make sure to check out Poke Radar as well to find creatures with utmost ease.)

Go ahead and play the game to your heart’s liking and earn as many PokéCoins as you desire.

Comment: Pokémon Go — I Just Don’t Get It (But Everyone Else Does)

Take a quick look at the landscape of the Internet since last week and it’s quite apparent that Pokémon Go has taken over the planet. Nintendo’s market cap jumped $9 billion since last Wednesday, at least five of the top Techmeme stories right now are about Pokémon, and my mother-in-law (!) knows where to find all the Pokéstops and gyms around town. Seriously.

The phenomenon is really impressive, but I really don’t understand it. If I were reviewing Pokémon Go in a bubble and hadn’t seen the Internet’s reaction to the game, I’d have written that Niantic/The Pokémon Company should probably scrap the whole game and start over. But people really love Pokémon Go…

It may be an extreme case of FoMO, but I haven’t deleted Pokémon Go and don’t plan on it. My wife is playing, her mom is playing, and the kids working at the ice cream shop on Sunday night were playing and even wanted to compare which Pokémon everyone has caught so far when they heard the game music on our iPhones.

My favorite part of Pokémon Go so far has been receiving some truly laugh out loud funny messages from my mother-in-law as she plays the game (on her own!). From Saturday night and Sunday afternoon:

But in general, I really don’t get Pokémon Go or why it’s exploding like it is. (Full disclosure: I don’t really get Snapchat either although I’m a millennial (hate that word) by definition.)

Starting with the log in screen, the Pokémon Go app on iOS is pretty clunky. The birthday picker isn’t very polished and creating an account through Nintendo is hit-or-miss but mostly miss. That will change when servers can keep up with the rise in traffic levels, but other parts of the log in experience are rocky too.

Choose to log in with Google and there’s no back button. Force quit the app to return and log in with Nintendo. And if you use a password manager like 1Password, you can’t copy and paste your secure password into the Nintendo login screen.

Not to mention the whole Niantic requiring full access to your Google account (something used by Chrome as well but not most apps including Ingress which Pokémon Go is based on).

The actual gameplay is very different too. The AR-experience is neat and oddly addictive. You have to get out and move to find Pokémon, acquire items, hatch eggs, and battle at gyms. Pokémon Go is fun in that way but it’s definitely not Pokémon as you’d expect coming from a handheld Nintendo console.

I bought a Nintendo DS when Pokémon Black and White were released in 2010 and the game was exactly what you’d expect if you played Pokémon Red and Blue in the 90s. Clearly that’s not a bad thing judging by the response so far, but I’d still love a true Pokémon experience on iOS.

Speaking of iOS, Pokémon Go really isn’t optimized for the platform. It has to work the same on both Android and iOS, and its developers aren’t targeting iOS features that could greatly improve the game yet. The future could hold *big changes*, but Pokémon Go as it stands now is just kind of rocky.

The app is a huge hit on battery life as gameplay requires the app to be opened with your screen on (Low Power Mode may be more useful than the app’s battery saver mode). Ideally, Pokémon Go would access the iPhone M8 or M9 motion co-processor and detect your steps and activity when the app isn’t active, but for now it doesn’t request access to fitness activity.

I’d also expect some sort of notification system to promote gameplay when the app is closed. Hatch is a Tamagotchi-style app for iOS that uses this model (although the app hasn’t changed in a while). Pokémon Go could use location services in the background, then alert you when you’re near a Pokéstop or gym or rare Pokémon.

My guess is this would all be available if Pokémon Go was an iPhone-only app, but Niantic is developing for both Android and iOS simultaneously at launch so neither app is especially optimized for its respective platform.

Given the current shape of the iOS app, asking for a watchOS companion app for the Apple Watch is a real moonshot but such an addition could also really enhance the experience. Manage your favorited Pokémon, interact with nearby locations, or just get credit for Apple Watch workouts.

Pokémon Go’s social features are all by chance, so far, not by design, which is especially surprising for traditional Pokémon fans. People are meeting up at the same locations to catch Pokémon and takeover gyms, but you can’t battle nearby players or trade Pokémon with friends. (I consulted with a real life Pocket Monsters Go expert to verify this; apparently trading is in the works too.)

So that’s my confusion with Pokémon Go. The app isn’t top notch, the gameplay is unexpected, the opportunity for improvement is endless, and I still don’t want to stop playing … for now. I wouldn’t have predicted Pokémon Go would explode in the way it has, but I also don’t see it’s popularity maintaining beyond the summer and maybe part of the fall.

I think it boils down to Pokémon Go being an experience greatly enhanced by the social connections in real life for now, but when that settles down the gameplay may not be as satisfying as a traditional Pokémon title on a handheld Nintendo console or a real Pokémon app for iOS. Some of its success right now could be because of hype generated from availability too: it’s currently only live in a handful of countries.

How To Add A Border To Photos On Iphone Or Ipad

How to Add Borders to Photos on iPad and iPhone

Open the Photos app on the iPhone or iPad and choose the picture you want to add a border to so that it’s the primary image on the screen

Tap the “Edit” button in the corner

Next, tap the (…) three periods button

Now tap on the “Markup” button

Once in Markup, tap on the (+) plus button

From the element options, tap on the square

This places a black square on the image, while the square is selected you can tap the color options to change the border color, and you can tap the little square / circle button in the corner to change the thickness of the border matte if desired

Now tap and drag on the blue dots on the square to adjust the box so that it’s at the edge of where you want the photo border to be

Tap on “Done” when satisfied with the placement of the square border

Now tap on the Crop button, it looks like a square with some arrows rotating around it

Drag the crop selector handles so that they are aligned with the outside square border you just placed, then tap on “Done”

That’s it, you’ve drawn a border onto the photo from iOS!

In the example images used in this tutorial, we used an iPad to place a black border around a photo, but you can use any other color for the border by using the color wheel selector or by tapping the other color options if you’d like to.

Two of the most common color borders to add to photos are black or white, which are commonly used in photography mattes. Adding white borders or black borders to a picture is often referred to as ‘matting’, and is usually aimed to bring out a particular color or add a particular feel to the image contained within the border matte.

In this particular case the relative thickness of the border may be inadequate for some users needs, as often a photo matte is much thicker. Of course you could just keep placing additional squares around the image each sized appropriately and with the same color, but if you’re going that route you might be better off just getting a dedicated app to add borders to images.

The video embedded below demonstrates this process of adding a border to a picture with this trick on an iPad, it works the same on iPhone too:

This is obviously just a creative use of the Markup drawing tools and Crop photo function, and it’s not an official matting or border method (currently there does not appear to be one, perhaps a future iOS release will include an ‘add border’ capability to the Photos app), but if you don’t mind thinner borders and matting and placing them on a picture yourself as instructed here, it does the job.

The Markup feature of Photos is really great, you can use it to draw and write on photos, fill out PDF forms, add signatures to documents, and much more. While this tip obviously focuses on using this Markup feature on iPad and iPhone, you can perform the same functions on a Mac too if it’s running a modern MacOS release with Markup support.


Photo Stream Not Working On Iphone Or Ipad: How To Fix It

One feature that made a ton of difference to how you shared photos from within the Photos app on your iPhone was Photo Stream. It came about at a time when Facebook and Instagram were at the peak of their photo-sharing features, and Apple made it simple and easy for iOS users to share their photos with other iOS and macOS users.

Photo Stream is a cool idea and a cool feature. I wouldn’t call it a flawed execution at all because every feature that Apple brings in comes with its own set of problems: iCloud, FaceTime, iMessage, and of course, Photo Stream.

How to Fix “My Photo Stream Not Working” on iPhone and iPad

Sometimes photos you added to a stream on your iPhone don’t sync and show up on the iPad

At times, Photo Stream doesn’t even recognize that you’ve taken photos (and so doesn’t add them to the stream library)

Or at other times, Photo Stream just doesn’t work. WiFi issues notwithstanding, Photos aren’t added to your Mac/PC when you add them to the Photo Stream library on your iDevice

We’ll take a look at how you can fix the Photo Stream not working issue. Remember, this is a broad solution channel, and you might have to try them all before Photo Stream gets fixed.

Solution #1. 20% Battery Rule

One of the first things you’ll notice on FAQs on Apple (for Photo Stream) is this rule: you’ll need to have more than 20% battery for Photo Stream to work. This means… well, you know what this means. Charge up your iPhone before you even think about Photo Stream. Make sure there’s enough battery and a good, solid Wi-fi network (or LTE, but WiFi is preferred always).

Solution #2. Read-only Permissions

Did you change the default folder for Photo Stream in Windows (via iCloud Control Panel)? Well, that’s going to be a problem.

If you change the folder to someplace else, do this:

Read-only permissions can be a pain, especially in Windows. And since Apple uses an external service to modify the content of your Photo Stream, you’ll definitely need to make sure it’s not read-only.

Solution #3. Close Camera App

If you don’t close your camera app, you’re going to have a bad time with Photo Stream sync.

Photo Stream is made to work that way: it’s only when you close the camera that the photos automatically get synced to the Photo Stream and then finally to all your iDevices. No, this doesn’t mean you press the home button after using the camera, and then you run to check the Photo Stream on your iPad.

It means you double-press the home button, and swipe-up the camera app to close it. Whoosh! Your photos should be up there on the Photo Stream. Give it a few minutes, and they should be on all connected devices.

Solution #4. Enable Photo Stream Under Settings, iCloud

Oh, this is such a plain thing. But then, it’s probably not.

Photo Stream needs to be enabled at two (minimum) places in your iDevice.

(a) iCloud

Go to Settings

Tap on Your Name at the top of the list

Tap on iCloud → Photos

Make sure it’s ON

For good measure, enable Shared Photo Streams too

(b) Settings

Go to Settings

Scroll down and tap on Photos

Turn ON “My Photo Stream” if it isn’t already

Turn on “Shared Albums” too for good measure (believe me, this is what triggered the Photo Stream for me although I do entirely doubt the link between this and Photo Stream sync)

Solution #5. Reboot and Reconnect to Wi-Fi

The plain old method is to just reboot the phone.

Or give it a hard reset.

Also, disconnect from Wi-fi from devices where the Photo Stream isn’t synced and then re-connect. For good measure, do the ‘forget network’ routine and re-add the network.

Alright and all done, buddy, but the whole thing still doesn’t work. What to do then?

Signing off

Of course, restore is not an option if it’s just Photo Stream that ain’t working. I’ll give the “are you kidding me?” look if someone tells me I’ll have to restore my iPhone just because Photo Stream doesn’t work for a while. I’ll just do the ON-OFF toggle and then delete/create albums in Photo Stream till it resumes normal functioning, then restore my iPhone.

How To Access And Share Icloud Drive Files On Iphone Or Ipad

Many people who own a Mac also use an iPhone. Generally, people will have their phones with them wherever they go, but not their Macs. While you are away from your computer, you may want to view one of your iCloud Drive files or share that file with someone. The introduction of the Files app with iOS 11 in late 2023 has made this easy. This article will go through the steps needed to access and share your files and folders on your iPhone or iPad.

Access iCloud Drive Files on your iPhone or iPad

On your iPhone or iPad, there is a built-in app that gives your access to your iCloud Drive Files. It is called simply Files.

How to find and use the Files app Find and open the Files app

On your iPhone or iPad, look for an app called Files. The icon looks like a blue file folder. If you are having trouble locating this app:

Go to the App Library. Swipe left through all of your Home screens until you get to the App Library. If you see the icon, tap on it. Otherwise, in the search field, type files, then tap on Files to open it.

Navigating the Files app

At the bottom of the Files app screen, you will see two tabs: Recents and Browse.

If you are looking for a file that you have recently created or opened, you can find it in Recents.

You can tap on Browse to explore your files. This is helpful if you know what folder(s) you want to look in. To move up a level in your file/folder tree, tap on the name of the current folder in the upper-left corner of the screen.

To rearrange the file icons or to change to a list view, tap on the three dots button in the top-right corner of the screen.

Use the search field to find a file by name.

Opening files from the Files app

When you are in the Files app, many files will open with a Quick Look preview when you tap on them. If you want to open the file in another app:

From the Files app

From the Files app, press and hold on the file you want until a menu appears.

Tap on Share. You will see a row of apps above the Copy option. You can scroll left and right through these, then tap on one to select it. If you don’t see your app in the list, tap on More at the far-right of the apps list.

With the file open in the Quick Look preview

If your file is open in the Quick Look preview in the Files app:

Tap on the Share button in the upper-right or lower-left corner of the screen.

You will see a row of apps above the Copy option. You can scroll left and right through these, then tap on one to select it. If you don’t see your app in the list, tap on More at the far-right of the apps list.

With the file open in another app

If your file opens in an app that you don’t want to use:

You can get back to the Files app by tapping on arrows near the upper-left corner of your screen or by exiting (swipe up from the bottom of the screen and pause in the middle), then tap on the Files app again.

From the Files app, press and hold on the file you want until a menu appears.

Tap on Share. You will see a row of apps above the Copy option. You can scroll left and right through these, then tap on one to select it. If you don’t see your app in the list, tap on More at the far-right of the apps list.

Share files from your iCloud Drive To share a copy of a file

You can email or use a messaging app to share a file from Files on your iPad or iPhone.

In the Files app, with the file icon visible, press and hold on the file icon until a menu appears.

Tap on Share.

You can choose from one of the options listed in the first row. It includes nearby devices for AirDrop and some of your most frequent contacts. You can also choose an app from the second row. Choose from Messages, Mail and more. If you don’t see the app you would like to use, tap on More, located at the far right of the apps list.

To share files or folders in iCloud Drive

You can also share files and folders with other iCloud users. This is especially useful if you need to collaborate with someone, if the files are particularly large or if you have many files you want to share. To learn more about sharing files and folders, see How to Share Files and Folders in iCloud Drive.

How To Fix Iphone / Ipad Keyboard Missing Or Disappearing

Are you having trouble activating the on-screen keyboard on your iPhone or iPad? More specifically, is the keyboard not showing up on the screen when you tap on the text field or does it disappear randomly? This could be due to various reasons, but usually it’s not that hard to resolve, so if you’re wondering “why isn’t my keyboard showing up on iPhone / iPad?” then read on to fix the issue.

If you’re one of those unlucky iOS / iPadOS users who’re currently facing this issue, we’re here to help. In this article, we’ll be discussing some basic troubleshooting methods that you can follow to fix the missing iPhone or iPad keyboard and make it reappear on the screen.

Fix & Troubleshoot Missing or Disappearing Keyboard on iPhone & iPad

Make sure to follow each one of these troubleshooting methods individually and check if the keyboard shows up when you tap on a text field. Now, without further ado, let’s get started.

Update iOS or iPadOS

If you have an available iOS or iPadOS software update, install it, as it may resolve the issue for you. You’ll want to backup your device first, of course.

This may resolve the issue for you, as some users found the keyboard was disappearing only on earlier versions of iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 but not on later releases, similar to the slow lagging keyboard issue.

Tap on a Text Input Area

Double tapping or triple tapping into a text area on the screen can often make the keyboard appear if it’s otherwise hidden off the screen.

Rotate the Device

Sometimes rotating the devices screen orientation can make the keyboard appear too, just make sure orientation lock is disabled otherwise rotating won’t accomplish anything.

Force Quit and Relaunch the App

If only a particular app is having problems with the keyboard disappearing, try force quitting it and relaunching the app.

Force quitting apps on iPad and iPhone is as simple as going to the App Switcher and swiping up on the app you wish to quit.

Update the App

Again, if one particular application is causing a problem, check to see if that app has an available update on the App Store. If it does, install the update, it may resolve the vanishing keyboard issue.

Turn Off Bluetooth

Restart the iPhone / iPad

If that troubleshooting step didn’t help, you can try rebooting your iOS/iPadOS device and see if it resolves the issue. Most minor software-related bugs and glitches like this can be resolved by simply rebooting your device. If you’re using an iPhone/iPad with Face ID, long-press the side button and the volume up button to access the shutdown menu. On the other hand, if you’re using a model with Touch ID, you just need to hold the power button. Also, you can shut down your device through settings too.

Reset All Settings

Unusual settings configuration can sometimes cause issues with the stock iOS keyboard on your iPhone and iPad. Hence, restoring your iPhone or iPad’s settings to factory defaults could potentially fix the problem in some cases. If you’re not sure how to do this, simply follow the steps below.

Doing this will not erase the data that you have stored on your iPhone. However, it will restore the keyboard dictionary, network settings, home screen layout, location settings, etc. If you don’t want to permanently lose these settings, you’ll need to back up your device to iCloud or iTunes before doing the factory reset.

Hard Reset Your iPhone / iPad

Nuclear Option: Erase & Restore

That’s all there is to it. By now, you should’ve managed to get the keyboard to show up on the screen.

Still facing issues? Beyond the suggestions offered above, what you can do is get in touch with Apple Support. You can either chat with an Apple Support executive or talk to a live agent at Apple according to your preference.
