Today, Apple released software updates for both iMovie and iDVD to improve the overall quality and stability of the two applications. The iMovie 9.0.2 update fixes an issue that could cause audio playback to be out of sync and is recommended for all users of iMovie '11, while iDVD 7.1.1 update includes an update that ensures compatibility when sending slideshows from iPhoto '11 to iDVD. You can update your system from the Software Update option in your menu bar or from Apple's official site.
As we wait with baited breath for the grand opening of the Mac App Store tomorrow, today Apple provided a bit of a maintenance update to its iWork productivity suite. The update also expanded support for iWork.com, which has been in public beta for going on two years.
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.
We've grown used to our favorite Apple apps getting loads of new features when the iOS updates. No longer are we stuck with the tyranny of the hated Marker Felt in Notes, and Safari got some slick new updates that weren't in any advertisements. But what about the iPad's built in reader?
It appears that the iPod touch 2nd generation and iPhone 3G do not support Home Screen wallpapers even though images on Apple's sites say that they do. The images pertain to updates to iOS 4.2. They do still have the nifty selection of wallpapers, though they're only available on the lock screen.
The image errors appear on both the Apple USA and Apple Canada sites.
In an effort to make your viewing of our newly redesigned website all that it can be, Apple has released an update to Safari 5 for both OS X and Windows versions. The update repairs a problem that, in the past, has prevented some users from submitting web forms and corrects an issue that prevented some web surfers from viewing Google image results if Flash version 10.1 was installed on their system.
It’s widely believed that Apple would unleash iOS 4.2 this week -- most likely on Friday -- on the heels of Mac OS X 10.6.5 and iTunes 10.1. Users got Mac OS X 10.6.5 as promised on Wednesday, but we may be forced to wait a bit before the others come along.
