Will’s solution revolves around Network Link Conditioner, a preference pane Apple provides to developers to test their apps under simulated poor network conditions. An iPhone app, for instance, has to work properly even if the cellular data connection provides only a few hundred Kbps.
You've migrated your photo library from iPhoto to Photos app, and now your Mac has taken over all your internet bandwidth for the sole purpose of uploading all your photos to the iCloud. You can pause the uploading for one day to get on with your work, but you know tomorrow you will face the same problem again. At this rate, the photo uploading will never complete.
So, here's an interesting solution of forcing Photos to do the uploading without taking over all your bandwidth. The solution is not trivial to do, but at least, it is something you can apply before Apple fixes the problem.
A review that shows off the voice and experience of the writer is more truthful and more valuable that one of those old-school “impartial” reviews. When I write a review today, I bring two decades of history and a whole lot of consideration with me, but in the end, a review is still my opinion. It’s based on my experiences and biases and readers should know that.

Geared towards providers, Suicide Safe helps teach providers and their families about discussing suicidal ideation, with conversation starters.
The app also provides a referral finding tool that can use your device’s current location, plugging the provider in with community resources. This includes crisis phone numbers, downloadable patient materials, and finding behavioral health clinics in the area.
If you take photos with your iPhone to help you remember things like to read a book you stumbled across at a friend's house, Nine can help you keep track of your reminders.
I’ve been using the updated iPhone app since it debuted earlier this week, and it succeeds in making Spotify more entertaining. In many ways, it now feels like an app built for people like me: news-hungry music lovers who get nearly all their info and entertainment from a smartphone.
Through location tracking and an elegant breakdown of statistics, Rewind does exactly what I want from a mobile time tracker: it tracks where I spend my time automatically in the background, every single day.
When an object registers for a notification, and then is deallocated without unregistering, then the app will crash if that notification is posted. That’s the thing you need to avoid. The rest of this article describes how to do that.
So… is it really just for web development? Honestly, it doesn’t matter if it starts out that way because the thing that Microsoft tends to always get right is extensibility. We’ll be able to start building plug-ins as the product matures to enable all sorts of development, including Swift!
While the app is still available on the iOS App Store and Google Play, Adobe said that it will remove Touch on May 28. The app will continue to work as long as it's downloaded and installed, but no more updates will be produced, and it will no longer be for sale.
The company is however working on one or more replacement apps. In a new demonstration video, prototype software is capable of loading and editing a 50-megapixel image on an iPad at speeds comparable to a desktop computer. The video also shows off options like selective object removal, color swapping, and image warping.
Instead of the Apple Watch recording your heart rate every ten minutes, many users – including myself – are seeing large gaps in the data.
The iPad running iPhone OS made sense in a world before iCloud and Continuity, before Yosemite and Apple Watch. It kept everything compatible and consistent across mobile. Now, however, we have all those things. Compatibility and consistency have, in large part, been abstracted. Mobile can now be more than one thing.
I think one way of interpreting ‘only Apple’ is to hear ‘only Apple can create products that achieve this success.’
What really needs to be heard is ‘only Apple can create compelling products that aren’t compromised by detrimental agendas.’
The software I use now lacks the veneer of flawlessness that Apple products provide; it is quite clearly a work in progress, forever under construction by programmers who notice a need and share their fixes with everyone. But early on, I noticed that the glitches started to feel different than they used to. Stuff that would have driven me crazy on a MacBook didn’t upset me anymore. No longer could I curse some abstract corporation somewhere. As in Slow Food—with its unhygienic soil, disorderly farmers’ markets, and inconvenient seasons—the annoyances of Slow Computing have become pleasures. With community-made software, there’s no one to blame but us, the community. We’re not perfect, but we’re working on it. I gave away my MacBook.
I envy the physical Play/Pause button on the iPod Nano, and wish that the iPhone has a similar button.
