Pebble & Contact Lockscreen Info Description

Two segments in this week's show.

First is a look at the new Pebble watch and iPhone App - Just released, the Pebble watch is a great new device that integrates with your iPhone, and has caused the Apple rumour mill to explode with anticipation of a new Apple iWatch. You can see just what the fuss is (potentially) all about.

In this section, I take a look at setting up the Pebble watch from a factory restore and take you through the simple process of pairing with the iPhone and the installation of a new watch face from the iPhone over Bluetooth.

Once set up, I demonstrate navigating the Pebble menu and demonstrate the ability to traverse playlists on your iPhone from both the Music app as well as Spotify, plus how to control music playback.

Another benefit of Pebble is to allow iMessages to automatically display on the watch when delivered to your iPhone. No more having to remove your iPhone from your pocket, the message is on your Pebble and can be scrolled to be read.

It's early days for the Pebble and I would expect to see a lot more applications being developed and released over the next few months. This really just gives you a taster of what might be possible, and to be honest, gets me even more excited if Apple do eventually come out with a similar product, but with Apple's design and usability polish.

Secondly, I take a look at a simple free utility to create a smart label for the lock screen of your iOS device.

When you're out and about, you should lock your screen, but if you lose your iOS device, how does anyone know who it belongs to?

You can cobble together a label for your lock screen using any graphics package, but this simple application does it all for you, and allows you to create a basic image label to install as you lock screen.

    Tweetbot - Twitter Client

    Twitter is maturing into an indispensable messaging platform for many millions of people. The importance of Twitter has been recognised by Apple by its deep integration with iOS5.

    Unfortunately, the official Twitter client leaves a lot to be desired, and the quest for the ultimate Twitter client continues unabated.

    This week, I take a look at what may take the title of the ultimate Twitter client, and that's Tweetbot.

    Twitter is maturing into an indispensable messaging platform for many millions of people. The importance of Twitter has been recognised by Apple by its deep integration with iOS5.

    Unfortunately, the official Twitter client leaves a lot to be desired, and the quest for the ultimate Twitter client continues unabated.

    This week, I take a look at what may take the title of the ultimate Twitter client, and that's Tweetbot.

    Tweetbot by Tapbots had a huge update just a month or so ago and introduced an iPad version of the app. This has met with great critical acclaim and has become widely adopted as the Twitter client of choice by many people.

    Another big update in the last few weeks has further enhanced the application and I felt it was time to give it the ScreenCastsOnline treatment.

    Features of special note include it's synchronisation between different iOS devices using iCloud. Keep you position in your timeline, even when switching between devices. It has full gesture support and new integration with Storify to make Twitter even more useful.

    Even better is the ability to "mute" people, hashtags and even applications, if your timeline is starting to get a little too noisy, or polluted with unwanted tweets.

    • Installation & Setup
    • iCloud Sync
    • Timeline, Mentions & Messages
    • Using Gestures
    • Details and Conversation Views
