Things 2 is a fully featured task manager application from Cultured Code. Since we last covered it, Things has had many new much requested features added, most importantly cross platform syncing.
In this episode, Todd Olthoff brings us up to speed on the main features of Things 2 on iOS and explores some of the new features.
The final part of the Alfred Remote for iOS series.
In this episode I look at how to configure the different types of actions in Alfred Remote, using the supplied Alfred Snippet samples, as well as how to access your Workflows in Alfred Remote.
Something different! How about a control pad for your Mac?
I've covered remote access solutions to control your Mac, but usually these are aimed at working from a remote location. Alfred Remote allows you to configure your iPad or iPhone to control your Mac locally.
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.
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!
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 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.
We've covered apps and services that allow you to conect to and control your Mac from your iOS device before. This one is a bit different as it's from Google - Chrome Remote Desktop for iOS.
Simply install the client on your Mac using the Chrome Browser and you'll be able to magically access your Mac from your iPad or iPhone. Even better, it's free!
Twitter... you either love it or hate it! I'm strictly in the "love it" camp, but have been disappointed by the lack of updates to my favourite Twitter app - Tweetbot for iPad.
So recently, I decided to switch over to the official Twitter client on the Mac, iPad and iPhone. I'm delighted to say that it worked out just fine, once I'd made some adjustments to my muscle memory.
In case you feel like a change, here's an overview of some of the new features in the Twitter for iOS app.
Edit, view and share your photos, directly from your iPad or iPhone. Apple have done it again with a groundbreaking new application for iOS.
iPhoto for iOS allows you to edit your photos with multitouch gestures, right on your iPad or iPhone. Leapfrogging the capabilities of iPhone on the Mac, iPhoto for iOS has some groundbreaking features, allowing for direct manipulation of you photos via touch.
This first part of a two part series starts off by looking at some iPhoto basics, before moving to some more advanced features next week.
GarageBand for iOS was one of the first applications to be released as a fully touch enabled application for the iPad and iPhone.
Elevating the iPad and iPhone from just a device for consumption of content to a true creative platform, GarageBand has some unique features and is an incredibly powerful application.
The iOS Music player sucks, especially on the iPad!
OnCue comes to the rescue and allows us to play our music in a flexible and fluid way. No longer restricted to rigid playlists, OnCue allows us to create a dynamic playlist on the fly. Listen to a track and add additional tracks to your queue as it plays. See what's coming next and re-adjust the queue by tap, hold and drag. It's a brilliant way to control your music.
How many times have you listened to a random track, wanted to play more from that album but not bothered because of the hassle? OnCue makes it simple to queue up tracks from the same artist or Album currently playing, even find and play YouTube videos of the song. Want to create "Smart Queues" directly on you iOS device - OnCue can do that too!
Following on from last week, I take a more in-depth look at Transmit iOS.
Panic have created a brand new version of Transmit specially for iOS 8, with support for Share Extensions and iCloud Drive.
As promised, following the coverage of MoneyWell for the Mac in episode SCOM0471, Todd Olthoff takes a look at MoneyWell on the iPad.
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.
A great ScreenCastsOnline favourite, PDFpen on the Mac is indispensable for reading and annotating PDFs.
Well the rich functionality of PDFpen is now available for the iPad.
Not only does it have the ability to annotate and correct your PDFs right on the iPad, PDFpen for iPad also has full iCloud support and integrates with a multitude of different services.
