Apple bumps approved size for iOS apps, lets them eat twice the memory — People looking for richer mobile apps may cheer Apple’s decision to double the size limit of those approved for sale. But those whose iPhones and iPads have smaller amounts of memory will need to download carefully because Apple is bumping up the maximum size of apps from 2GB to 4GB , marking the first time Apple has expanded the size limit since the App Store’s 2008 debut.

New photo editors — Now owned by Adobe, Aviary Photo Editor is more than just a basic photo editor; the app includes a variety of artistic filters and other editing tools to transform a plain photo into something beautiful. Meanwhile, Macworld’s weekly roundup of apps includes two new offerings for editing and sharing images captured on your iPhone.

Apple Pay keeps expanding in the US — Apparently Apple Pay negotiations are going on between Apple and several banks in Brazil, while in the United States the federal government has announced it will support Apple Pay with its own payment cards and that Uncle Sam is going to start accepting Apple Pay for various purchases.
