What AirPlay is and how to use it in iOS 7

This post shows you how to use Apple’s AirPlay feature to share music, photos, video, and even what’s currently on your screen with another Apple device. One of the things that sets Apple apart from its competitors is their ability to create a cohesive ecosystem which allows all their products to work together seamlessly. One of my favorite examples of part of this ecosystem in action is a feature Apple introduced in 2010 called AirPlay.  It allows you to send all kinds of media (music, photos, video, screen mirroring) wirelessly between your Apple devices. If you take a photo or video Continue Reading →

Slo-mo Mod – Use slo-mo video mode on unsupported jailbroken devices

This post overviews Slo-mo Mod, a jailbreak tweak that enables the iPhone 5s’ slow motion video capture mode on older iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches.     One of the features that Apple used to show off the power of its newest flagship phone, the iPhone 5s, was its slo-mo video capture mode. The iPhone 5s’ A7 processor packs in enough power for the phone to capture slow motion HD video at 120 frames per second.

Tydlig Review – Great alternative calculator app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

This post reviews Tydlig, a great alternative calculator app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Sometimes you just need a calculator. I frequently pop open the stock calculator app on iOS to do quick calculations when I’m budgeting throughout the week or shopping for groceries. One of the best things about the stock calculator app is its simplicity. But there are some situations where I need more options. Of course, I could turn my iPhone into landscape mode to access a lot of extra features in the calculator app, but then the buttons are very small and somewhat difficult Continue Reading →
