Tip of the Day: How to Move your Image in FaceTime

When you're FaceTiming, you can see the other person and you can also see yourself. But say you’re FaceTiming someone on your iPad or iPhone and they’re trying to show you something from their location, or their face is covered the small image of you.



Duet Display App Half-Price (Do Yourself a Favor and Buy It!)

image

Let me start by saying Duet Display is the most expensive app I've ever bought (on sale for $7.99), but is worth every penny. Duet Display is on sale because it's featured in the App Store this week under the productivity section. So, since I'm a sucker for productivity apps (maybe it's the illusion of productivity they give me!) and it is on sale, I figured I'd buy it to try it out. The concept is simple: the app allows your iPad or iPhone (iOS 7.0+) to be an extended display for your Mac (OSX 10.9+). Just install some software, restart your computer, and plug in your iPad to your Mac. It's as simple as that.

Put Your Mark on Photos with iWatermark+

image

The primary reason you should graphically (or not so graphically if using steganographic tags) tag your photos is to add some identifying mark on them, or even just add context. With iWatermark+ ($3.99) you can add a copyright, a custom icon, a logo, or even embed hidden steganographic data in your photos. You could also simply share your email, a uniform resource locator, or QR Codes (with links to either) from within your images. The latest version also allows you to watermark your videos.



Review: Shifts Calendar App

If you're a shift worker, look no further than Shifts for your scheduling needs.

Some weeks, I babysit, and others I don't. Every week, I have classes, except during holidays. Sure, these aren't shifts, but they provide the perfect example. With the calendar app Shifts ($1.99), I can create a "shift" programmed with the hours I work every week.

Everyone would choose to keep things positive and spread good vibes in social media, but from time to time, there will simply be circumstances which can prompt us to lose it. Whether it be a rant about an irritating reality TV celebrity, a boyfriend who is late again for the umpteenth time, or lousy customer service, we want an outlet for unloading these feelings.
