  • Special iOS 8 Launch Episode Description

    It's finally here! The most significant release of iOS since the iPhone launch itself - iOS 8

    This special episode takes you through some of the decision points of deciding to upgrade to iOS 8, and walks you through the upgrade process.

    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!

    The full tutorial covers:

    • Considerations Before Upgrading
    • Backup Your Device
    • OTA Upgrade
    • iCloud Drive Considerations
    • iOS 8 Taster!
    • Health App

    Parallels Access for iOS

    Parallels Access is a unique solution to the problems of remotely accessing your Mac from your iPad or iPhone.

    There are plenty of remote access solutions out there (we've covered quite a few on ScreenCastsOnline) but there has never been a solution that solves the issue of trying to access a large, high resolution display from a device with a smaller screen. Most remote access apps will allow you to scale the desktop to full size, but then everything is too small to either see or control. Otherwise, you can zoom the screen up to full size on your iPad or iPhone, and then end up scrolling everywhere.

    Parallels Access gets around both these problems by allowing your Mac apps to appear just like iPad or iPhone apps, each app taking up the full iPad or iPhone screen. You really need to see it in action to see how different (and how effective) this is, compared to other remote access applications.

    Wireless Storage with the LaCie Fuel Drive

    One of the biggest frustrations when traveling is having to rely on the limited storage on both my iPad and iPhone, especially when trying to select the movies I want to take with me. This is made worse by trying to decide which movies need to go on which device.

    The solution to the problem is to use external storage, preferably a drive with wireless connectivity.

    This week, I take a look at the LaCie Fuel Drive - either 1 or 2TB of external storage in a small, compact enclosure with both USB3 and built in WifI capability. Perfect, especially with its 10 hours of battery life!

    I also take a look at the companion app for managing the Fuel Drive - Seagate Media - as well as a look at a much better solution for playing media on your iPad or iPhone via the LaCie Fuel drive - Infuse.
