Google Adds User Account Menu to Chrome Canary-TNW Blog

Google Chrome has supported multiple user accounts for years now, but the options to add and manage them have been buried in the browser’s settings. In fact, if you actually navigate to the proper section (Hit the menu button, choose Settings, and scroll down to “Users”) and add a few users, you can’t actually switch between them from there.

Google is toying with a complete revamp of the user account system in its browser, clearly borrowing a lot from Chrome OS.

Google Docs Now Converts Word’s Tracked Changes To Suggested Edits–Ubergizmo

Google is hoping to lure more users of Microsoft Word onto their platform. They have recently made some changes to Google Docs that will basically convert Word’s tracked changes into Suggested Edits.

***

While you no longer have to convert Microsoft Word files to Docs (thanks to the recent Quickoffice integrations), if you do, any tracked changes in a .docx file will be automatically carried over to Docs as Suggested Edits. Once you’ve imported your changes, you can begin immediately collaborating with your colleagues in real-time.

Home Screen: Ian O’Flaherty — MacSparky

 

 Ian O’Flaherty (Twitter) (Website) is the developer of Trial Pad (App Store) and Transcript Pad (App Store).

Besides the obvious bias towards my own apps, TrialPad and TranscriptPadKeynote is a favorite. It can assist anyone to create great looking presentations. I use Keynote not only for presentations, but also to create fully functional mock-ups of new app ideas, or to see how a new user interface element might look within one of my existing apps. I thinkGoodNotes is one of the better note taking apps, and is ideal for my needs. Besides note taking, I use it to bring in screen shots of apps to draw on and sketch various user interface changes or ideas, especially with its shape recognition mode. My RSS reader of choice is Mr. Reader as I like the way you can organize and skim through your feeds, and I’ve recently started usingPocket to save interesting articles to read later when I have more time. I have tried various podcast apps but keep coming back to Apple’s own Podcasts to listen to great podcasts, such as Mac Power Users ;)

Aperture is Dead. Long Live Photos! | ApertureExpert

 

More than you ever wanted to know about Aperture and Photos! from Joseph at Aperture expert:

On the surface, it doesn’t seem like good news, but there’s a lot more to this than a few lines of text. First, the official words.

“With the introduction of the new Photos app and iCloud Photo Library, enabling you to safely store all of your photos in iCloud and access them from anywhere, there will be no new development of Aperture. When Photos for OS X ships next year, users will be able to migrate their existing Aperture libraries to Photos for OS X.” — Apple, Inc.

In short, Aperture as we know it is dead. So let’s take a step back and figure out what this really means, because obviously photography is far from unimportant to Apple. There are more questions than answers now than ever before, and I’ll try to come up with all the right questions and all my best answers. Call this interpretation, speculation, or clairvoyance — but here’s how I’m reading into this.

This includes both Skype for Windows and Skype for Mac. Version 6.13 and below will be retired for the former and 6.14 and below for the latter. This is being done as the Skype team focuses its efforts on “bringing the latest and greatest to the most recent versions of Skype.”

Those who are using older versions of the service need not worry. Its free to update to the latest version of Skype today. The latest version can be obtained from Skype’s website for both Windows and Mac.

Every Legal App for iPhone and iPad-Lawyerist

 

OS apps for lawyers abound, whether for case management, billing, or trial preparation. This page has every legal app for iOS that we could find in the App Store.

There are just a few exceptions. This does not include apps that have not been updated since 2011 and have few or no reviews in the App Store. Apps that are simply mobile versions of a legal publication aren’t here, either, since the app doesn’t do anything over and above the website. Finally, the App Store is full of applications that simply repackage freely available content, such as the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Unless an app added some significant extras (such as the ability to annotate or cross reference) to that type of content, it’s not here.

The table below is searchable, and you can sort by each column. Use the comments to let us know if we missed an app, and look for an Android app catalog in the near future.
