    So many iCloud sync services to choose from - iCloud, Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, Google Drive and many, many more.

    1Password for iOS - Update

    Time for another update show and it's 1Password for iOS.

    I did cover the 1Password iOS 8 extension when it first appeared, but it may not have received the prominence it deserved in the flurry of activity immediately following the launch of iOS 8.

    As it's such an important application, and it's recently been updated, I thought it would be useful to do a refresher and bring things up to date.

    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.

    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!
