PopClip & iCloud Web Apps Description

Two parts to this week's tutorial - PopClip and iCloud Web Apps.

PopClip is a brilliant utility that mimics the popup that appears when you select text in iOS, but on your Mac. As well as allowing you to copy and paste, it now also allows you to install extension to do all sorts of things with the selected text.

I take a look at the basic operation of PopClip as well as exploring some of the more useful extensions such as integration with Sticky Notifications and Google Translate

iCloud Web Apps are just like the standard apps you find on your Mac and iOS device - but on the web! Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Find My Phone and iWork have now been joined by Notes and Reminders. So now even if you're away from your Mac or iOS device, as long as you have an internet connection and a standards compliant browser, you can access your data from anywhere. As well as taking a brief look at all of the apps, I also point out some tasks that can only be performed from the Web Apps.

This full tutorial includes sections on:

  • PopClip
  • iCloud Web Apps
  • Mail Web App
  • Contacts Web App
  • Calendar Web App
  • Notes Web App
  • Reminders Web App
  • Find My Phone

    OSX and iCloud Features

  • OSX and iCloud Features Description

    I covered the OSX 10.7.2 and iOS5 upgrades last week, but only skimmed the surface of what iCloud brings to the Mac.

    This week I explore some the new iCloud features in depth but specifically looking at the impact on the Mac.

    Having touched on some of the changes in OSX 10.7.2 last week, I thought I'd record a short segment just filling in the gaps.

    However, a couple of hours later, I realised there was more than I had anticipated.

    A new user account to be explained, new ways to "Find My Mac", as well as subtle changes in Safari, Mission Control and the Mac App Store. I also took a more in depth look at iTunes in the Cloud and Photo Stream.

    So if you thought 10.7.2 wasn't a significant upgrade, check out this week's tutorial.

  • OSX 10.7.2, iOS5 & iCloud Description

    This week's members tutorial guides you through the minefield of the OSX 10.7.2 upgrade for your Mac, the migration from MobileMe to iCloud and the upgrade of your iOS devices to iOS5.

    As well as the installation, migration and upgrade processes, I also take your through some of the stunning new features of iCloud and iOS5.What a huge week for Apple!

    Three major releases - OSX 10.7.2, iCloud and iOS5. Four if you include the iPhone 4/4SS!

    Despite the system meltdowns on launch day, things have settled down and iCloud is proving to be a great replacement for MobileMe... If you understand the limitations and plan your migration accordingly.

    That's where this week's ScreenCastsOnline members tutorial comes in!

    Rather than a flashy, high level overview of the services, I take you through some of the details of iCloud and help you assess if iCloud is for you, and if now is a good time to take the plunge.

    If it is the right choice for you, the tutorial takes you through the full migration process.

    From installation of OSX 10.7.2, to migrating your MobileMe account to iCloud, I explain using multiple Apple Ids to access the correct systems and take a look at the new iCloud web interfaces.

    The tutorial also takes an initial look at some new iCloud and iOS5 features:

    • Photo Stream - A great way to automatically send your photos to all your iOS devices, as well as iPhoto and Aperture. I take you through the Photo Stream setup and configuration, as well as showing you how to reset your Photo Stream to delete photos.
    • Documents in the Cloud - Another great feature in iCloud, but at the time of recording, seamless transfer of documents into iCloud is only available on iWork for iOS devices. I demonstrate how this works on both iPhone and iPad. Integration of Documents in the Cloud with your Mac isn't quite automatic yet, but I show you how to transfer documents in and out of iCloud from your Mac, using Safari.

    As well as setting up iCloud, the tutorial also takes you through the upgrade to iOS5.

    Once installed, I take you through the process of configuring your iOS device to access iCloud as well as the iTunes store.

    With all the configuration tasks out of the way, I explain some of the new features of iCloud such as iCloud backup and configuring your iOS device to sync with iTunes over WiFi, as well as setting up Twitter integration.

    I'll take a look at some of the other features of OSX 10.7.2 and iOS5 in next week's show!
