Dropbox Adds Split View Support – MacStories

LINKED BY JOHN VOORHEES

Dropbox received a major update a little over two weeks ago. At that time, Dropbox promised Split View support for the iPad in ‘the coming weeks.’ With no indication in the release notes, Dropbox’s most recent update adds Split View support, a feature which will make the app far more useful to many iPad users.

A dozen iOS 10 feature gems that Apple forgot to mention–David Pogue

David Pogue

Last month, when Apple (AAPL) released iOS 10, the latest system software for the iPhone/iPad, it made a big deal out of the major features, like a redesigned Music app and contextual predictions in Autocorrect.

But Apple’s engineer elves worked for a year to overhaul iOS 10, and they’ve planted lots of hidden gems. In today’s video, all in one 12-minute lesson, I’m happy to present a dozen of the best iOS 10 features that Apple forgot to mention.

(In this crash course, I didn’t say anything about the new Messages app. That one gets a whole lesson unto itself!)

EDITOR’S NOTE:  One tip on using the “Home” button is worth the read:

Eliminate the click

You can get an extra efficiency when it comes to waking up your phone by eliminating the requirement to click the Home button.

Instead, you can just touch your finger to it. That wakes the phone and unlocks it in a single motion.

To find this feature, open Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Home Button. Turn on “Rest finger to open.”

BLOCK & FLOW

SCIENCE

www.blockandflowapp.com

Block & Flow is a free productivity iOS application and Google Chrome extension that uses the pomodoro technique (short work intervals followed by brief, regular breaks) and provides users with self-generated data about how they spend their time. Users create a number of categories to describe work activities (e.g. writing, email, studying, etc), then assign each of these tasks a color. Next, users select from their self-designed categories as they start to work. A timer, in the shape of block, appears on the screen for 25 minutes. Once this time is over, users are prompted to take a 5 minute break. Block and Flow is unique from other pomodoro devices in that users can then view the amount of time – or total blocks – they spend each week on each of their self-created categories. This allows users to regularly assess and adjust their work habits and productivity. [MMB]

ScanSnap Conflicts with Sierra Easily Avoided

by Adam C. Engst

In “ScanSnap Users Should Delay Sierra Upgrades” (20 September 2016), we warned users of Fujitsu’s ScanSnap scanners to avoid upgrading to macOS 10.12 Sierra, based on the company’s dire predictions of potential data loss. Happily, it turns out that Fujitsu was just playing it safe until its engineers were able to pin down the exact conflicts, and they turn out to be far more minor than previously predicted.

In its updated notice, Fujitsu (a TidBITS sponsor) now outlines three activities that ScanSnap users should avoid when running in Sierra:

Google Allo review – CNET

By: Lynn La

 

***

THE GOOD Google Allo is available on both Android and iOS, and features a digital Assistant that fetches information for you in a conversational way. Its Incognito Mode erases conversations and has end-to-end encryption.

THE BAD Allo doesn’t integrate video calling, and it doesn’t have as many features as its competitors, like baked-in GIF support or control over read receipts.

THE BOTTOM LINE It’s not a perfect communications app on Day 1, but the integrated, all-knowing Google Assistant bot sets Allo apart from the messaging competition.
