    iBeacon Technology - Part 3

    In this third and final part, I explore further iBeacon technology and Estimote Beacons.

    This time, I demonstrate just how easy it is to generate text, images, audio, video, etc, and have that content pushed to an iPhone or iPad when in proximity to an Estimote Beacon. All without a line of code and for free!

    I use the locly.com web service and application to generate a new project - the ScreenCastsOnline Tour - and demonstrate publishing images, text and audio and making it available to your iOS device as you approach a specific Beacon. I also demonstrate setting up notifications to iOS devices from your Beacons.

    The full tutorial covers:

    • Setting Up Beacons
    • Setting Up A Place
    • Creating Cards
    • Using The Locly App
    • Notifications
    • Adding a Second Beacon

    iBeacon Technology - Part 2

    Following on from last week, I explore further iBeacon technology and Estimote Beacons.

    Estimote Beacons are delivered fully configured and working straight out of the box. However, once you've signed up for an Estimote Cloud account, you can use the Estimote iOS App (or their website) to tweak the settings on each Beacon. In the first part of the show I show you what is configurable and how to do it.

    In the second part of the show, I demonstrate a typical use for iBeacon technology using a 3rd party app called "Launch Here" - an app launcher that you can configure to launch specific applications when you approach a designated Beacon.

    iBeacon Technology - Part 1

    iBeacon and Beacons - We've all heard about this new technology brought in with iOS7, but what's it all about?

    iBeacon is a technology built on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and allows your iPhone or iPad to connect seamlessly (and with zero configuration) to small, low powered Beacons when you approach them. This has huge potential for Retail, Education, Businesses and even around the home.

    In this week's show I try to set out to de-mystify what iBeacon is and start to explore some of its potential.

    I'll be covering iOS 8 extensively over the next month or so, as well as looking at iOS 8 impacts and influences the top third party apps.

    There will be lots of short snappy looks at iOS 8 functionality all over the internet, but that's not how we roll here at ScreenCastsOnline. There will be no knee jerk reaction or rush to flood you with superficial or lightweight views of such an important topic. Each future episode will look in depth at the various aspects of iOS 8 and ultimately how it will impact with OS X Yosemite.

    That being said, I couldn't resist giving you a little teaser at some of the new features of iOS 8 in this special launch episode.

    Just to reinforce one of the messages in the episode, if you currently use iCloud for document storage or iCloud syncing between your iOS devices and your Mac, DO NOT OPT TO UPGRADE TO ICLOUD DRIVE! Your documents will be inaccessible from your Mac and iCloud syncing will break, at least until OS X Yosemite is out!

    • Backup Your Device
    • OTA Upgrade
