Plex gains podcast support and gets redesigned, personalized app for iOS and Android

Plex has come a very long way over the years, but it has lacked support — for some inexplicable reason — for podcasts. Today this changes with the arrival of not just a podcast feature, but also a new look, highly customizable mobile app for iOS and Android users. For the time being, podcast support is in beta, but it is a feature that is available to all users — there’s no need to be a paid-up Plex Pass subscriber. Things are a little basic for now, but they’re going to improve. Let’s take a look and see what this… [Continue Reading]

Here comes Apple’s spring event – and it’s an education

New iPads, an Apple Pencil and something special for education lead speculation as Apple invites media to March 27 “field trip” in Chicago, which appears to be its spring event.Let’s take a field trip
The invitation reads, “Let’s take a field trip”. It appears as if it has been handwritten, featuring an ink-like drawn Apple logo and the phrase.It’s not unusual for Apple to hold a launch event in March – it most recently did so in 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2016.Underneath the calligraphic elements the note continues to read, “Join us to hear creative new ideas for teachers and students”.To read this article in full, please click here

Say goodbye to Swype

Android and iOS users who are not happy with the stock keyboard on their device have lots of third-party options to choose from. Among the established alternatives is Swype, which has been available for nearly five years on Android and over three on iOS. It’s actually one of the first third-party keyboards I tried on both platforms. Swype, however, hasn’t really caught on in quite the same way that, say, SwiftKey has, which is likely the reason why the company behind the app, Nuance, has announced that it’s reached “end of development.” In other words, Swype users, your favorite keyboard… [Continue Reading]

iOS 11 Released

Today, Apple released the final version of iOS 11, its latest mobile operating system. If you have an iPhone or iPad that was released within the last few years, you should be able to download the new update if you navigate to the Settings panel and check for a software update under the General tab. The Verge reports: OS 11, first unveiled in detail back at Apple’s WWDC in June, is the same incremental annual refresh we’ve come to expect from the company, but it hides some impressive complexity under the surface. Not only does it add some neat features to iOS for the first time, like ARKit capabilities for augmented reality and a new Files app, but it also comes with much-needed improvements to Siri; screenshot capture and editing; and the Control Center, which is now more fully featured and customizable. For iPads, iOS 11 is more of an

iOS 11 turns your iPad into a completely different machine

While the final version of iOS 11 is not coming until later this fall, Apple just launched the public beta. Here’s a preview of what you can expect.

Microsoft now lets iOS developers deploy, run and test their apps directly from Windows

 If you’re an iOS developer, then Microsoft’s Xamarin already allowed you to develop your iOS applications in C# with the help of tools like Xamarin.iOS for Visual Studio. Until now, though, you still needed a Mac to build and test your apps. As the company announced today, that’s not necessary anymore. With the new Xamarin Live Player, you can deploy, run, test and debug iOS… Read More
