  • iOS 8 - #8 - iCloud Drive on iOS Description

    iCloud Drive opens up iOS to previously unimagined flexibility.

    No longer constrained by individual document silos, iOS 8 introduces a system wide Document Picker that gives you almost free range when browsing files across multiple applications.

    Except there is no "File Manager app" for iOS - all file access is mandated by the use of the Document Picker which currently is not available through all apps. Developers need to update their applications to access the Document Picker.

    However, some applications are now updated and available, so this episode gives run a run down of the current status, and provides you with some examples of how apps can save and open documents using the Document Picker.

    I also take a look at how apps can interact with other apps, as well as access third party storage services, all using the Document Picker.

    You may need to watch this episode twice!

    iOS 8 - #7 - iCloud Photo Library (Beta)

    iOS 8.1 is out and with it some new functionality, as well as public access to the iCloud Photo Library (Beta).

    As I only covered Photos on iOS last week, and the iCloud Photo Library is causing a lot of confusion, I thought it best to put it through its paces today and explain some of the functionality.

    Date: 24th October 2014 Duration: 16:42
  • iOS 8 - #7 - iCloud Photo Library (Beta) Description

    iOS 8.1 was released last week with a number of updates including Apple Pay, changes to the Messaging System, the re-introduction of the Camera Roll and opening up the iCloud Photo Library (Beta) to the public, as well as a number of bug fixes and improvements to iOS8 in general.

    As we covered Photos last week, I wanted to finish off by covering iCloud Photo Library and explain the significance of this new iCloud service. The show takes you through setting up the new service, uploading your photos and a review of the syncing mechanism. I also cover the changes to way photos are edited, as well as a brief look at accessing iCloud Photo Library via iCloud.com.

    As always with beta software or services, your mileage may vary but I've been very impressed with it up to now. But make sure you take suitable precautions before relying on iCloud Photo Library to take care of all your photos.

    The full tutorial covers:

    • Camera Roll
    • iCloud Photo Library Setup
    • iPhone Setup
    • Browsing
    • Editing

    iOS 8 - #6 - Camera and Photos App

    Continuing on from last week as promised - A look at the new Camera app as well as the new editing controls in the new Photos App.

    The Camera App has been updated with some new features (depending on your iOS device) but the main changes are in the Photos App. iPhoto for iOS is no more and photo editing has been enhanced in the Photos App. You can switch between "easy" editing or open up controls for fine grained adjustments for light, colour or B/W.

    The new Photo Extensions in iOS 8 also allow you to utilise the photo editing capabilities of other installed photo editors, right from within the Photos App. I demonstrate by using Camera+ on the iPhone.

    Photo management has changed in iOS8 with some radical changes. Camera Roll has gone (for now) and Photostream view has also gone.

    iOS8 is currently in an interim phase with the launch of iPhoto Cloud Library not yet announced, and its absence is causing some confusion.

    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!
