One question I’m asked on a regular basis is “What apps are you using to mark up and annotate your images?” A few years ago, I would have told you that it wasn’t an easy task on iOS and you were better off using a Mac app, such as Napkin. Luckily, that not only isn’t
I’ve never understood why there is no Instagram share extension for sharing pictures directly from the Photos app on my iPhone. In many cases, I prefer editing photos with apps like Afterlight or Polarr, both of which support app extensions and allow me to edit without ever having to leave the Photos app. Luckily, even
All of us have been there, we have somewhere to be but our iPhone or iPad desperately needs to be charged. If you don’t have a battery pack at your disposal and are stuck waiting around, there’s a simple way you can make your iPhone or iPad charge faster.
For the past few weeks my Apple iPhone 6s Plus battery has been dying way faster than it should. For example, on Sunday my battery was at 35% by 3pm under light usage. The next day it was at 18% by 2pm. Considering I’ve never experienced bad battery life on this particular iPhone, I figured
I’ve read numerous stories over the last few weeks about how the Apple Watch doesn’t seem to be useful in terms of apps, or how people are struggling to find uses for it. While I do agree there’s a lot of room for improvement, I don’t agree there aren’t any that offer tremendous utility. Here

On this week’s episode of The App Factor Podcast Ally and Brian talk about the smaller iPad Pro and how Ally’s doing with the smaller Smart Keyboard. Brian also talks about cutting the cord and what apps and services are helping him do just that. And as always, lots and lots of apps!
There are many times when family or friends need help with their Macs, or they aren’t sure how to do something. Trying to walk them through it blind is challenging, at best. Luckily, a little known feature in the Messages exists that allows me to share my screen instantly with another Mac user, or I
Manual camera apps for iPhone offer better control over settings like exposure, focus, ISO, and shutter speed. If you’ve ever shot photos in an environment where the light wasn’t ideal or you had a rough time balancing shadows and light, you would benefit from a manual camera app. While these kinds of apps aren’t always
Back in November I purchased a 12.9″ iPad Pro and a Smart Keyboard to go with it. I was so used to my Belkin keyboard paired with my iPad Air 2 that I quickly became frustrated with the Smart Keyboard’s lack of a shortcut row. Before long I returned the Smart Keyboard (and the 12.9″
There aren’t a lot of apps I use regularly on my Apple Watch. The ones that I do use regularly consist of utilities that make my life easier, or apps that help me track things, like water intake or how many tasks I have left for the day. One of my favorite utilizes is MacID,
When I purchased a 12.9” iPad Pro back in November, I bought an Apple Pencil to go with it. When I decided against the 12.9” iPad Pro, I still kept my Apple Pencil. Even though I don’t draw, I found a lot of other ways the Apple Pencil fit into my workflow — and because
