Best iPhone Apps Best iPhone Apps Every year brings a new version of iOS and a host of new apps and updates that take advantage of Apple’s latest features. 2015 has been an awesome year for iPhone and iPad owners, with the arrival iOS 9, Force Touch and proper multi-tasking. Apple has also unleashed some of the most exciting hardware we have seen for years. We’ve sorted through the stream of new apps that arrived in 2015 and devised a list of our favourites just for you. Here are ten apps that we think were some of the best from the past year, and five great updates that transformed older apps. One of the new features of the latest iPhones is Live Photos. When you take a photo, the camera also records the action from a few seconds before and a few seconds after you push the shutter. Here Comes the iPhone 6S: What’s New & Should You Upgrade? Live Photos, however, have no where near the level of support enjoyed by GIFs. Tweetbot 4 ($9.99) Tweetbot has consistently been one of the best iOS Twitter apps you can buy.
A feature called “Phone Noise Cancellation” was introduced to the iPhone with iOS 7 which aims to reduce background ambient noise when on a phone call, but for some users it can sound strange and make their phone calls sound weird, or worse. This may be due to the ambient audio stream created by the feature. Apple describes the option as follows, “Noise cancelation reduces ambient noise on phone calls when you are holding the receiver to your ear.” In other words, because the feature only works the iPhone is held up to your head, you won’t notice it all if you tend to make iPhone calls through Bluetooth in a car, headset, speakerphone, or earbuds. If you think your iPhone calls sound off but you can’t quite pinpoint why, or you feel a little weird when holding the phone to your head while on a call, try turning off the ambient noise reduction feature and see if that helps.

Reset iPhone to Factory Settings If you want an iPhone to appear as brand new from a software standpoint, you need to reset the device to it’s factory settings. This is ideal if you plan on selling an iPhone or are going to transfer ownership of the device to another individual, and it can also be a very helpful troubleshooting technique for some persistent iOS based software problems. After you have reset the iPhone, it will reboot as if it was brand new and go through the standard new setup procedure that all new iOS devices go through, and can then either be set up as new or restored from a backup. It’s very important to note that the factory reset process will remove all data and settings on the device, meaning you will lose everything that is stored on there, from pictures, to music, to notes, and specific app data. Warning: This will removal all data, music, photos, settings, literally everything, and the entire process is done from the iPhone without the need of using a computer.

The Best Way to Backup Your Mac and MacBook ProMobile Meandering I’m no stranger to data loss. Over the past several years I’ve experienced catastrophic data loss in servers, and about seven years ago my home computer’s hard drive crashed. I didn’t have a backup of the disk, which forced me to use DriveSavers to recover most of my data. Like most people, I’m lazy about backing up my data. Automated Backups for Mac When Apple released Time Machine, they introduced a dead simple way to backup your Mac. My solution was to get a Time Capsule from Apple. Automated “Cloud” Computing Backups Unfortunately, relying on one backup is not the best backup plan. Just like Time Capsule and Time Machine, these services can be set up to run automatically in the background. Backblaze I’ve tried several cloud computing backup services on OS X, including Mozy, but Backblaze was the service that worked the best, and was also the most unobtrusive. The price is incredibly cheap. Dropbox Another cloud computing service I use is Dropbox. The Best Way to Backup Your Mac and MacBook ProMobile Meandering

Quick, Easy and Moist Whole Wheat Muffins These muffins are also dependent on the whole wheat. Whole wheat isn't just a health statement here; the taste of the whole grain makes a nutty, pleasant flavor. I think these muffins would be slightly boring if made with just white flour. I like the extra dimension that whole wheat gives, and the fact that whole wheat flour is lower in gluten than regular all-purpose flour also means a more tender muffin. I do use white wheat flour, though, which makes for a lighter, sweeter taste. Quick, Easy & Moist Whole Wheat Muffins makes 12 muffins 2 cups white whole wheat flour1 teaspoon baking soda1 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon cinnamon1/4 teaspoon ginger1 1/4 cup sour cream1/4 cup honey1 egg1/4 cup olive oil 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract Heat the oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, lightly whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and ginger. Whisk the sour cream, honey, egg, olive oil, and vanilla extract together in a separate small bowl.

Healthy Breakfast Recipe: Whole Grain Morning Glory Muffins Recipes from The Kitchn I tend to go into hibernation mode at the first hint of fall. The looming cold weather inspires me to welcome people over and hole up for the night. Whether it's sitting around a fire pit into the late hours of the evening or to lingering over a hearty breakfast on a chilly weekend morning, I just can't think of a better way to spend time with my closest friends. I especially love when these visits turn into overnight stays. Which brings us to these muffins. Finally, I took matters into my own hand. The resulting muffins are oh-so-moist, nutty, and sweet all at the same time. Whole Grain Morning Glory Muffins Makes 16 standard-size muffins Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, whisk the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, ground flaxseed, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and ginger. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, bananas, canola oil, olive oil, molasses, and vanilla.

Fall Breakfast Recipe: Spiced Pear Muffins Fall Breakfast Recipe: Spiced Pear Muffins I wish you could smell these muffins cooling on my counter right now. Better yet, I wish you could actually be here in my kitchen right now. Because then we could sit down with mugs of coffee and one muffin each, and break off nutmeg-scented nibbles as we trade stories about our day. These muffins might just be one of my crowning achievements. They are solidly in the middle of the muffin spectrum, neither so sweet that they could pass for cupcakes nor so healthy that they stop tasting like a treat. And the pears! Makes 12 muffins Heat your oven to 425°F. In a mixer on high speed, cream together the sugars and the softened butter until they resemble fluffy frosting, about 1 minute. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, spices, and salt. Scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula and stir gently to incorporate the last of the flour. Divide the batter between the muffin cups. Place the muffin tin in the oven and immediately turn down the heat to 400°F.

Travel apps were featured prominently during the reveal of the Apple Watch. And it makes sense — what better use of a smartwatch than portable translator, hotel room key and navigation aide? Travel companies that have already announced additional app functionality for the Apple Watch include major airlines and hotels, as well as general booking sites, travel guide companies and transit apps. If you are getting your Apple Watch on Friday (or in the coming months), here are the apps that want to change how you travel. Maps Apple Maps Providing directions is a key feature of the watch, but Apple Maps will do more than that: Hotel reviews from TripAdvisor and are baked into the mapping app. CityMapper CityMapper is focused on public transit, providing the fastest routes to your destination based on Google Maps data.

share by Matt Alderton | May 06, 2015 The new must-have tech toy is the Apple Watch. The Apple Watch isn't just cool, however. It's also useful. "Hundreds of business and productivity iOS apps offer extra functionality on the Apple Watch," said Small Business Computing contributor James Martin. One such app is TL;DR, which stands for "Too Long; Didn't Read." Or, try the Microsoft PowerPoint app. More Tips: Questions, Comments, Suggestions?

Channel will be instrumental in helping enterprises put smart wearables to good use Send to Kindle Solution providers looking to stay ahead of the curve might want to take a closer look at a market that has consumers riveted right now: wearables. The latest 411 from Juniper Research: Global retail revenue from smart wearable devices - glasses, clothing, wristbands, watches - will reach $53.2 billion in 2019, up from $4.5 billion last year. While it's true that wearable technology hasn't made deep inroads in the business space yet, it seems to be a matter of when, not if, the crossover will take place. One of the latest studies gauging the perception of wearables in the business arena was conducted by an independent research firm for Robert Half Technology, a staffing company based in California. Exactly when, though, is up for grabs. * Will this implementation improve your business? * Are you aware of the security risks, and can you address them? Building a case for business wearables - from

Want to better separate the apps within your Dock? Try adding a space to break them up. OS X Yosemite's Dock gives you a handy way of launching applications that you use the most frequently with a single click. To organize them, you can click and drag them around however you like. What you can't do, at least not directly from within the Dock's preferences, is divide up the apps using an easy visual separator. Fortunately, there's a workaround — if you're comfortable using the Terminal command line. I've set up spaces to separate the apps I use: My Internet apps are all grouped together, as are my writing tools and creative apps, all with spaces in-between them. Spaces break up the apps I use visually by function and makes it easier for me to locate them at a glance. Open Terminal.Type defaults write persistent-apps -array-add '{"tile-type"="spacer-tile";}'; killall Dock and press return. That'll create a single space in your Dock.

Murus is a front end for the OS X built-in PF packet filter. It’s main purpose is to speed up network firewall configuration and testing, using a simple interface. Filtering rules and networking options can be set dragging and dropping icons, changing their order, and selecting check boxes. There is no need to learn code syntax or to type shell commands. Everything is managed by visual elements like buttons, collections, lists, icons, leds. This manual describes Murus Pro features. OS X is one of the most secure computer operating systems today. Currently OS X 10.10 and OS X 10.11 feature two firewalls: ALF: application level firewall, can be easily configured using System Preferences Security panel. PF: network firewall, can be configured using the shell Terminal or using a third party front end, like Murus. Both firewalls are disabled by default on a newly installed OS X system. Both PF and ALF firewalls can be activated simultaneously, and they will work together. Managed Services Online Murus Manual
