Evernote, in both its free and premium formats, has been a favourite productivity application among many Mac users since its debut. At its core, the application is an robust organizational dynamo, enabling users to keep their lists, notes, web clippings and so much more organized, synced and accessible across a wide variety of operating systems and hardware. With the release of Evernote's most recent beta, it appears as though Evernote's development team will be maintaining the software's reputation for organizational excellence, while at the same time, implementing a pair of interesting new features to expand the program's already expansive functionality.
It is hard to believe that in just under a year ago, Apple introduced the iPad and persuaded many to change their views of mobile computing. The iBook Store was launched a few months later, and changed people's perception of e-books, but when Steve Jobs said Apple planned to "Stand on [Amazon's] shoulders and go a little further," he may have been mumbling more than just some marketing terms.
For many, the biggest disappointment of iOS 4.2.1 was the reality that the long-awaited AirPlay feature was essentially neutered -- video streaming to an Apple TV was only possible from Apple’s own apps. According to Steve Jobs, that may change next year.
Soon you will be able to purchase themes and skin your iOS devices right from one application available for jailbroken iPhones and iPod touches. Theme It is a brand-new store that will soon allow more customizations for iOS users.
Don’t howl in outrage, but comic books have always been a primarily disposable product. They tear if mishandled, and as any collector will tell you, faded ink and bent pages are inevitable if comics aren’t properly stored. Although iOS developers hardly invented digital comics, the iPad’s big, beautiful, portable screen makes the comic readers in the App Store a worthy alternative to delicately stowing and indexing each issue of Batman in a vacuum-sealed container.
While the iPad continues to ride high in the tablet market, the rumors have been flying fast and furious as to what the next model might bring. One of the most obvious is a camera, and a new report claims that a Taiwanese supplier has already been picked to provide it.
Airprint Hacktivator--a small but brilliant program that makes any printer connected to your Mac AirPrint compatible--has been updated to Version 1.7, making the invaluable system workaround less intrusive to your Mac's OS X operating system while at the same time maintaining the same level of awesome. For those of you who have been pining for a way to wirelessly print from your iOS device, you're going to want to download this free piece of software as fast as your internet connect can manage it.
Perhaps assuming that you picked up a new iPad, iPhone, Mac or iPod during their one-day Black Friday a few days ago (you did, didn't you?), Apple has posted some website-only deals on accessories for their computers and mobile devices on Cyber Monday.
This week on TechRadar, Orange and T-Mobile confirmed that they would be offering cheaper deals on iPad, as long as you take out a longer contract. Also, MySpace joined up with Facebook to take on Ping and first pictures appeared of the HTC Merge. Plus, of course, iOS 4.2 emerged.
At long last it arrived. Multitasking on the iPad showed up in iOS 4.2, and all we had to give up for it was the ease of the orientation lock button above the volume rocker. There were plenty more goodies too, and let's not forget other news about other Mac stuff, all of which was covered by the turkey (and tamale) stuffed gang at Mac|Life.
