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.

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.

How to create, view, update, and cancel Calendar events using Siri | iMore

 

Allyson Kazmucha:  Since Siri is meant to be your personal assistant, it only makes sense to have it schedule and manage your meetings and events on your iPhone or iPad. Asking Siri to create a Calendar event only takes a few seconds and is much faster than creating them manually and entering all the data yourself. Whether you need Siri to schedule a meeting, tell you what’s on the agenda for the day, or move an existing meeting to another time to make room for a conference call or a power nap, Siri will help make sure your schedule is set.

Why lawyers will love iOS 8 – iPhone J.D.

 

Jeff Richardson:  The iPhone and iPad are amazing tools for lawyers because they are relatively easy to use, but are also incredibly powerful.  But as lawyers (and others) start to master the basics of iOS, they often start to want more powerful features.  Every year, Apple adds more advanced features to iOS, and now it is hard to imagine that there was a time when we didn’t have third party apps, copy and paste, or even Siri.  But based on the announcements made by Apple yesterday, when iOS 8 comes out this Fall, Apple will make huge advancements to the operating system, with lots of advanced features for power users and lots of ways to make iPhones and iPads more powerful for everyone.  Apple announced a huge number of new features yesterday and I won’t even try to mention all of them today — not only because there are so many of them, but also because many of the features have so much potential that it is going to take a while for their importance to really sink in.  Moreover, Apple only gave us a taste of the highlights of iOS 8, and I’m sure that when it is actually released in a few months there will be even more surprises.  For all of those reasons, today’s post provides only a few of the reasons that I am confident that lawyers are going to love iOS 8.
