Review: Xprt app (free computer/iOS support!)

image

Raise your hand if you like to talk to real people when trying to fix your technology problems!

You can't see, but my hand is raised. When I need assistance, I would rather talk on the phone to an Apple genius or go to an Apple store to get my problem fixed. This is where Xprt can help. With Xprt, a free app, you can talk to a real person in a chat setting who can help your problem. 



Earth: A Primer Is an Interactive Geology Textbook

Preparing textbooks that are both educational and stimulating can sometimes prove difficult, especially in today's society. But the exploratory terrain found in Earth: A Primer ($9.99) makes learning about geology much more digestable.



Review: Outline+ app for iPad (and Mac)

image

One reason why I haven't moved completely to online note taking on my iPad is because note-taking apps don't allow me to be creative. For some of us, doodling helps. Writing in the margins helps. Coloring said doodles helps.



Letterspace App Uses Hashtags to Organize your Notes

image

Evernote has long been considered the quintessential note-taking app. But what if you just want a clean interface with easy organization? That's where Letterspace (free) comes in.

Don't expect the same functionality as Evernote or Wunderlist, though. Letterspace is a no-frills note-taking app that cuts down on the clutter.

My Year of Living Paperlessly

image

I made a New Year’s resolution to, as much as possible, eliminate paper from my life. I can’t control all of what comes it, but I can control some of it. And I have complete control over what I keep, within the guidelines of U.S. tax law, of course.

Here is the list of steps I took in January to get My Year of Living Paperlessly off to the right start.



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

image

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.

On Wednesday Microsoft released their Microsoft Outlook app (free) for iPhone and iPad. The app offers you an integrated interface for email, calendar, contacts, and attachments. You can use it to access your iCloud, Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, and Outlook.com accounts, as well as Gmail and Yahoo Mail. Especially if you're a corporate user, this is a great way to integrate all your accounts in one app. 



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.
