Apple is kicking the week off on an upbeat note, at least for former iPhone owners who have been suffering with the loss of SMS text messages after forgetting to disable iMessage. Our Monday Morning Report has the details on a new web app for correcting this issue, along with a new jailbreak for iOS 8 and the arrival of another beloved mobile app making the jump to Mac OS X. Click, read, and enjoy!
One of our biggest frustrations with OS X is its inability to share files with iOS devices at the system level — a problem that OS X Yosemite will finally address with AirDrop with a new feature called Handoff.
For social butterflies who practically live on Facebook, it's hard to understand why those who don't wouldn't want to use the network's login for everything -- and now, that even extends to Facebook Messenger.
Well, that was fun while it lasted. The big news for Monday was the announcement that News Corp is shuttering The Daily, its iPad news magazine published each day which debuted to much fanfare two years ago. Although the publication eventually expanded to Android and even the iPhone, it failed to find a paying audience, despite the popularity of the iPad. Read on to find out the details on the closure and a few other items of note you may have missed!
If you're the type who wants to be notified of every change in the status of your online orders, Apple has introduced just such a service for U.S. customers, which sends a text message when your order status changes.
Happy Friday, dear readers! Have we got a doozy of a recap for you today -- it’s got a little bit of everything, but mostly a whole bunch of savings for indie Mac games, and even a tip on how to start wiping out all that AT&T text messaging spam that you may be getting. It’s the perfect way to end the week, so kick up your feet and get reading on this Friday, April 20, 2012.
My friend and I have been using the new iMessage feature of the iPhone recently; however, after my friend was unable to send an iMessage successfully, the phone “suggested” that the message be sent through SMS instead. Now, all of our messages are being sent via SMS. We’ve tried deleting the thread of conversations and starting over, but nothing has worked. How can I restore the iMessage feature on our iPhones?
There’ve been several instances where my iMessages are delayed by a few minutes and then sent out as a regular text message. Sometimes this happens regardless of whether or not I’ve got full bars and my iPhone is connected to Wi-Fi. What gives?
