There's a good chunk of the world that still hasn't bought a Mac for various reasons despite their love of iOS devices, but Apple is taking steps to make sure they remain connected to their Apple files regardless of which machines they're forced to use. Today, the Cupertino company sent out invitations to members of AppleSeed to try out the beta iCloud for Windows, which includes access to iCloud Drive.
The differences between Apple and Google were clearly on display this month at their respective developer conference keynotes. Where WWDC 2014 left viewers entertained and wanting more, Google I/O effectively bored everyone to death with a nearly three-hour event that retreaded a lot of the same ground while failing to offer a compelling reason for Android Wear smartwatches to exist in the first place. But there was plenty of other news on Wednesday, and we've rounded it up right here...
The Google Drive app has been a handy all-in-one tool for creating and editing documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, but if you didn’t already know that the company’s cloud storage service held such features within, the name alone probably wouldn’t give it away. Luckily, Google aims to remedy that with today’s standalone releases of Google Docs and Google Sheets apps for iOS.
The middle of March is already upon us and another week comes to a close as many parts of the country continue to have Old Man Winter huff and puff his way, unwilling to give into the coming spring season. But we've got a pretty nice roundup of news to cap off the week, including a couple of new deals and a peek at what may or may not be on the way for iOS 8 this year...
Judging from our Twitter feed, last night's debut of iTunes Festival SXSW was a rousing success, with Apple executives among the ranks of those attending in Austin. And there are still four more days to go, which is plenty of time to tune into the Vevo website or iOS apps to catch more of the fun. That tidbit and more make up our Tuesday recap...
With every update, Google manages to improve its own third-party apps a little more on the iOS platform. This week, both Google Maps and Google Drive received welcome updates that bring small but convenient features.
Was anyone else impressed by Apple's ninja-like skills with Tuesday's release of the iPad mini with Retina Display? Aside from one or two last-minute rumors the night before which were largely dismissed, everyone was focused on later in November, allowing Apple to pull yet another rabbit out if its hat. Here's hoping some of that magic will carry over into next year's new product lineup!
It's Friday and that means the first week of November is already behind us, with only three weeks to go before the annual insanity known as Black Friday. While we may not have any deals in today's recap, there's a little something for everyone to look forward to, including a couple of popular app updates you can download right away. Let's dive in, shall we...?
Having home media server software like Plex is great, but what about those times when you want to access content from somewhere else? A new beta PlexPass feature uses cloud storage from existing providers for just such purpose.
Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!
Welcome to the last of our series of posts about Google's Command Line Tools (next week, we'll continue our regular series of Terminal 101s). For this final post, we wanted to show you how to use Google Docs from the command line. Google Docs is a great service that lets you stow all of your documents in the cloud, and even edit documents like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents. In this Terminal 101, we'll show you how to download, edit, upload, and delete your documents stored in this Google service. Let's get started.
