Evernote for iOS: simplified!

I've only spent a few minutes toying with the new version of Evernote for iOS, but I have to say I'm impressed. This newest version (Evernote 8.0) seems to be a complete rebuild of the app on iPhone and iPad and is a big step forward. For me (and others, if you simply google it) ...

Some significant Android regret

I'm going to admit something pretty difficult now. It's something that's been bothering me for a couple of weeks now, so this post will serve as a kind of confession. I really regret selling my Nexus 6P. You hear that? I'm sitting here, listening to a podcast on my iPhone 7 Plus and I'm pining after ...

An iOS 10 headache

Now, you can tell me I only have myself to blame, but I tried to update my iOS devices as soon as the iOS 10 update became available from Apple yesterday evening. My iPad Pro 9.7" updated smoothly and easily. I haven't gone through all the details, but with a couple of hours' use, I ...

iPhone 7 – taking the plunge?

I missed yesterday's Apple Event as it was streamed, but followed it via the liveblog from the Verge and sporadic tweets, all the time on a slow-moving train from Nottingham to London. There weren't too may surprises (Mario aside) and the phone and watch announcements were as expected. Yes to new black colours, yes to ...

Here come the shiny new Apple gadgets!

By this time tomorrow, I'll have gorged myself on all the juicy details from Apple's event, pored over the blog posts, zoomed in on all the photos and decided if any of it is of interest to me. I mean, I'll be interested in it all, but I won't be buying it all. My iPhone ...

Torn between iOS and Android? Kind of.

The experiment isn't over! Some of you may remember I got myself all Androided-up a few months back. I bought a Nexus 6P and fell in love with it and its OS, Android. I kept my iPhone and Apple Watch in a drawer and lived a Google-focused existence. Since then, I've moved between the two ...

An Android experiment

Right. We've been here before. I once impulsively bought a Samsung Note phone in Heathrow Airport while on my way to New Orleans and lived with it for several months. Before swiftly moving back to iOS as soon as Apple launched a new handset. While I loved the stylus and handwriting recognition, as well as ...

The experiment may continue…

After fiddling around with recording my voice a bit more over last week, I bit the bullet and ordered myself some recording equipment. Nothing too big or technical, just a mic I can plug into my iPhone and another I can plug into the iMac on my desk. I've realised I'm quite interested in learning ...

Early days with the Apple Pencil

I'm not ashamed to say I spent an inordinate amount of my Saturday evening playing with a pencil. The new Apple Pencil, combined with my iPad Pro 9.7". I know this word gets thrown around a lot when discussing Apple's products, but it's really 'magical'. In that I can't understand how it works so well. ...
