  • Microsoft Word for iOS Description

    Office 365 is the new subscription service from Microsoft that allows Mac users to access the latest versions of their Office suite of applications - Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneNote and Outlook.

    Following on from this week's Mac show, I take a look at Word on the iPad and iPhone.

    Whereas Word 2016 is only available as part of the Office 365 subscription, the iOS versions of all the apps are free to download and are pretty much fully featured. However, for seamless integration with the Mac versions of the apps, you will need an Office 365 subscription.

    The iOS versions of the apps do allow you to save your documents locally and do allow you to save documents to iCloud Drive. Dropbox integration is only available if you have an Office 365 subscription.

    In this short series of shows, I'll be taking a look at the three core applications, starting this week with an overview of Microsoft Word on iOS.

    Be sure to check out show SCOM0518 where I cover the installation of Office 365 and an overview of Microsoft Word 2016 on the Mac.

    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

    Sign + Encrypt Email and Files on iOS - iPGMail

    Without being overly dramatic, recent events have shown that your private data may not be as private as you think. Storing any unencrypted data or emails on remote services may eventually be accessed and read by official and unofficial prying eyes.

    This week's IOS tutorial takes you through the simple process of using iGPMail, an inexpensive iPad and iPhone app that allows you to digitally sign and encrypt email before sending via the iOS Mail App. It also allows you to check the authenticity of received mail and decode any encrypted mail sent to you.

    As seen in this week's Mac show (SCOM0422), it's really simple to generate a private and public key using the GPGTools and in the iOS show, I show you how to import the keys into iGPMail via Dropbox and then use those keys to sign and encrypt your emails.
