Bear is the new kid on the block as far as plain text editing on the Mac, iPad and iPhone is concerned.

Despite being a committed Ulyssess and Scrivener user, my interest was piqued by the glowing reviews and the fact that Bear was selected as "App of the Year" 2016 by Apple.

After using Bear for a couple of weeks (and the fact that I received many requests), I decided that it would be remiss of me not to cover Bear on ScreenCastsOnline - it really is a beautiful app!

However, there is one aspect of the app that may not sit well with some people, and that's to enable syncing between devices (and to switch on some other functionality), you need to upgrade to Bear Pro, which just happens to be a subscription service.

Consequently, in this tutorial, I focus mainly on the features in the free version, but still take a look at the Bear Pro options.

Well worth taking a look!

Wunderlist for Mac & iOS

Date: 6th January 2017

Duration: 42:18

Show ref: SCOM0593

Mike Schmitz did a fantastic job of teaching us the Getting Things Done philosophy in his three part series. In those tutorials, he concentrated on using OmniFocus as the task manager. Whilst OmniFocus is a great task manager, it's extremely powerful and may be overkill for some people.

If you'd still like to try out some GTD principals, why not use an alternative task manager to OmniFocus called Wunderlist.

Wunderlist is cross platform with free apps for iOS, Mac, (and Windows, Android, Windows Phone, Amazon Kindle Fire and even Chromebooks!)

In this tutorial, Allison Sheridan will teach how to to use this fantastic tool, keep your action items synced across all of your Mac and iOS devices, how to share to-do lists, and even assign action items to other people.

When it comes to getting things done, a little planning and organizing can go a long way.

In Part 3 of the GTD Productivity series, we show you how to leverage the hard work you did in capturing (Part 1), clarifying, and organizing (Part 2) into increased efficiency by utilizing your task management tools to display just the tasks you need to do, when you need to do them.

Spark is a beautiful and intelligent Email app with a huge following. It's been available for iPad and iPhone for quite a while and last month saw the release of a brand new version for the Mac.

Following on from the extremely popular GTD Part 1 episode (SCOM0578), Mile Schimtz takes a look at two other important facets of the GTD system - Clarify & Organise.

Underscoring the core principal of using a trusted system as your task manager, in this case OmniFocus, Mike looks at using other applications we’ve previously covered on ScreenCastsOnline to set up reference files.

More updates for macOS, iOS 10, watchOS 3 & tvOS.

Some minor changes to Mail on the Mac and iOS, some big changes to Maps on iOS and a first look at setting up Home Automation with HomeKit and the new Home App on iPad and iPhone.

You’ll be amazed at what can be achieved with this inexpensive yet incredibly powerful app.

BusyCal for Mac & iOS

Date: 2nd September 2016

Duration: 52:18

Show ref: SCOM0573

We’ve covered BusyCal before but the Mac version has had a big upgrade and they’ve recently released a brand new iOS version of BusyCal too!



BusyCal has for a long time been one of the premier calendaring applications for the Mac, and with the introduction of the new iOS version, you can now also use BusyCal to manage your calendars via your iPad and iPhone.

The iOS App will work completely independently from the Mac app, as it uses your iCloud calendar data as well as supporting integration with Google Calendar, Exchange and more. So you don’t need both the Mac and iOS app, you can use either or both. The underlying calendar data is also accessible from your standard Mac and iOS Calendar apps.



In this episode, Todd Olthoff gives you a refresher on the existing features of BusyCal on the Mac and take a look at some of the brand new features, as well as taking a look at the new iOS app on the iPad.

Two great apps this week - FotoMagico to take your slide shows to the next level, and Scanner Pro 7, the portable scanner in your pocket.

You may thing you’ve got slide shows covered with Apple Photos, but you really haven’t when you take a look at the functionality built into FotoMagico!

Show ref: SCOM0568

Scrivener is an awesome writing tool for authors, writers, trainers, bloggers, business people, hobbyists… basically anyone who writes text!

Even though it is one of the most respected Mac (and now Windows apps), it has always been difficult to use Scrivener using your Mac and iOS device. But now with the introduction of Scrivener for iOS that is no longer the case!

In this first of a two part series, I take a look at some of the core concepts of Scrivener on the Mac, how to set up syncing via Dropbox and a first look at the brand new version of Scrivener for iOS.

In this episode, Todd Olthoff takes a look at some sample workflows to automate the capture and manipulation of digital files using some of our favourite tools - Hazel & DEVONthink Pro. He also takes a look at a great iOS app that allows you to scan and process documents directly on your iOS device - Scanner Pro 7

iOS9 has really improved the ability for iOS Apps to interchange files and documents, but it’s still very confusing.



In this episode, I take a look at iCloud Drive on iOS and the Mac and try to explain how it all works. I also take a look at local storage options in various apps on iOS to explain just what is a “Document Provider”, as well at how the system wide Document Picker can be used in many different scenarios.

Date: 3rd June 2016

Duration: 13:28

Show ref: SCOI0250

LiquidText is a unique app for the iPad that allows you to read and annotate your documents in a completely new way.

No longer constrained by the inflexibility of scrolling through pages and pages of documents, with a few simple gestures you can annotate and “scrunch” sections together. It’s difficult to explain, but so simple when you see it in action!


Following on from the previous episode, I take a look at some of the more advanced aspects of Slack including installing and configuring some sample integrations, as well as building and configuring Teams. 



Slack is a great way to centralise your communications, all within a single app. Slack also integrates with over 80 web services making it as flexible or as powerful as you want.

In this episode, I take a look at integrations with services we’ve previously looked at on ScreenCastsOnline - Dropbox, Twitter, Trello and Airtable.

 I also show you how you can request an automated invitation to the SCO Demo Slack team and try it out for yourself!

Email is great but sometimes Slack is better!

Slack is a collaboration tool that allows you to message, chat and share files. It also integrates with most of the top online services making it a great way for everyone, from small teams to large organisations, to communicate and collaborate. 

With support for multiple teams, all your communications can be centralised within a single app.

Text expansion is one of the best ways to increase your productivity. Just type abbreviated keywords and have them expand into words, sentences, paragraphs or whole pages of text. Expand into images or formatted text, or use fill in snippets to prompt you to complete boilerplate text. These are just some of the options available using TextExpander and other text expansion utilities.



In this episode, we take a look at the newly released TextExpander 6 as well as some other alternative apps.


Another information packed episode in our short Photoshop series, this time focussing on using Masks to improve and adjust selected areas of your photos. Even if you’re not a Photoshop user, this episode covers some of the basic principles of using masks and translates to almost every other photo manipulation app.

In this episode, Todd Olthoff also takes a look at Photoshop Mix for the iPad & iPhone, and demonstrates how to create masks, adjust your photos and mix photos together - all using the free Photoshop Mix app.

Ulysses is a fantastic plain text editor for the Mac, iPad and iPhone. It allows you to create plain text documents or “sheets” and use markdown formatting to control the final look and format of your writing. PDF, ePub, HTML, Text, DOCX and even publishing to Medium are all included in this great app, giving you ultimate control of your writing.

As well as a wealth of formatting and exporting capabilities, Ulysses takes away the pain of managing your documents across all your devices. All your sheets are contained in a single Ulysses library, that syncs amazingly well with iCloud. It will even allow you to edit external files from a multitude of sources.

Notability is a fantastic note taking app for the iPad, iPhone and now the Mac.

It has excellent stylus support for hand-written notes and typed notes, including a unique "Zoom" feature. You can sketch drawings and annotations, type notes, and even audio record lectures and other events that stay timed with your notes. 

Editing your hand-written notes is easy because they're all vectors. This means with the swipe of an eraser, you can erase large or small sections of words or sketches, and moving or changing colour and line thickness is a snap.

An iPad Pro with Apple Pencil is not required, but it makes Notability even more natural and useful.

And now with a new Mac App and iCloud syncing, you can now access all of your notes across all of your devices.


In this episode I cover the basics of Copy and Paste.

Starting with the basic built in keyboard commands, to an easy way to copy and paste using the Mouse or Trackpad with PopClip, finishing off with a look at one of the best clipboard managers I’ve seen for a long time - Copied.


Photoshop Pt 2 - Layers & Photoshop Fix

Date: 25th March 2016

Duration: 47:58

Show ref: SCOM0550

The second in our multipart series on Adobe Photoshop on the Mac and the Adobe Photoshop apps on iOS.

Many people have opted to use Adobe Lightroom as a replacement for Apple's recently retired photo management application Aperture. Adobe Photoshop is a pro-level photo manipulation and is available to supplement Lightroom in a special bundle from Adobe.

In this episode, Todd Olthoff drills down into using Layers in Photoshop to non-destructively edit your images. The basic principals of using layers are very similar across many applications, so even if you're not a Photoshop user, you may still find this episode useful.

Todd also looks at the iOS companion app - Photoshop Fix.

Photoshop Fix is a free universal app for the iPhone and iPad and allows you to edit your images non-destructively. It also has some unique features for face manipulation and some other cool tools.

Photoshop Fix is free to download and use, but if you're a Photoshop user, you can transfer the updated images from your iOS device with all the layer changes accessible in Photoshop - very smart!


As not everyone has opted for Lightroom or has a need for Photoshop, the Photoshop series will be limited to a three or four part series, published once a month. We will also be looking at some low cost Photoshop alternatives in the near future.


Introducing 1Password for Families & Teams.

You may already be familiar with the 1Password app for the Mac and iOS and know that 1Password is a fantastic way of securing all your passwords, credit card information, account details and much much more. 



With the standard 1Password app, it is possible to share your secure data with family members and colleagues, but you need to sync your data using third party services. It works, but it's not so easy to setup and maintain.

Enter 1Password for Families and 1Password for Teams - These new subscription services make it so much easier to share your secure information with trusted family members and colleagues. There's no need for third party syncing services, it's easy to setup plus you get control over who accesses what, as well as the ability to recover lost or forgotten passwords for members of your family or teams. Even better, there's full integration with your familiar 1Password applications, in fact, everyone gets the full versions of the apps on all platforms as part of your 1Password for Families or 1Password for Teams subscription.

Airtable is an amazing cloud based database app that runs in your browser as well as natively on your iPhone and iPad (with an Android app on the way). Being cloud based, it’s truly cross platform and updates are synchronised almost instantaneously across all platforms and devices.

Best of all, there is a generous free version, it’s really easy to use and it’s extremely powerful!

Together 3 for the Mac, and Together Mobile for iOS are apps that allow you to collect and organise all your stuff - together!



With a multitude of capture and organisational features, Together 3 acts as a repository for many different types of files and documents. With the App Store version, it allows you to store your Together 3 library in iCloud, allowing you to sync it across your Macs and also your iOS devices using Together Mobile.

It takes a lot to impress me, but I’ve been blown away by Airtable!

Interact - iOS Contact Management

Date: 19th February 2016

Duration: 16:26

Show ref: SCOI0249

Interact gives you that feature and more.

Using the same contacts information as managed by iOS and synced via iCloud, Interact allows you to create, update and delete Contacts groups all from your iPhone or iPad.

Not only that, you can send messages or emails and attachments to multiple members of groups from within the app itself, or using share extensions, from virtually any app.

Time to revisit an old favourite of ScreenCastsOnline, and that's Evernote.

Not just a quick revisit, Evernote have pulled all the stops out and completely redesigned both the Mac and iOS client applications. The redesigns aren't just cosmetic either, they've added a lot of new functionality to Evernote, and in doing so have changed the way you may interact with the application.

This week is the first in a two series looking at the new features of Evernote for iOS.
