OSX Mavericks also brought with it a new version of OSX Server.

We've covered OSX Server extensively in the past, but I thought it would be a good idea if Todd Olthoff brought us up to speed with any changes or enhancements.

OS X Mavericks - Calendar, Safari 7 & Notifications

Date: 23rd November 2013

Duration: 28:56

Show ref: SCOM0427

This week, it's time to take a look at some of the new features bolted on to existing apps by OS X Mavericks.

Calendar: Begone leather header and torn paper! OK, so they've cleaned up Calendar and given it a smart new fresh look, but the changes go considerably beyond that. New integration with Maps, as well as a clever way of dealing with travel time between appointments.

Safari 7: New Top Sites and a new Sidebar are just two of the cosmetic changes, along with some performance boosts under the hood. This segment also take a look at the changes to way Plug-ins are handled as well as the brand new website notifications.

Notifications Center: OS X Mavericks brings "Do Not Disturb" to the Mac as well as some other welcome tweaks. Reply to messages directly from an Alert and answer or delete emails too!

Shared Photo Streams - Update

Date: 23rd November 2013

Duration: 16:09

Show ref: SCOI0138

This week's show turns up some unexpected good news about the Shared Photo Stream feature, included as part of your iCloud account.

Shared Photo Streams are a brilliant idea, but most people feel nervous due to the highly publicised limits for Photo Streams - only the last 30 days and a maximum of 1000 photos.

Did you realise that these limits are only for your Personal Photo Stream?

The limits for Shared Photos Streams are significantly higher... incredibly higher in fact!

This special episode brings you up to date with the current limits surrounding Shared Photo Streams - I guarantee you'll be amazed!

You can even view selected cities in full 3D Flyover mode. Use Maps to plot a route and send to your iOS device with a single click.

iWork 09 & iWork 13 Interaction

Date: 16th November 2013

Duration: 16:35

Show ref: SCOI0137

So iWork '13 is now with us after the long, long wait. A complete re-write with full parity of features across the Mac, iOS and the Web.

Excellent!

The only problem is that some features have had to be sacrificed to achieve parity at this first release. This is problematic to many people who rely on many of the advanced features of the iWork suite. Luckily, Apple have thrown a lifeline and kept the older versions of the applications available on the Mac, although not on iOS.

This tutorial deals with some of the issues of using the older versions of the iWorks apps to still access the removed features. A warning though - although this tutorial is in the iOS stream, it deals mainly with issues on the Mac but does have implications for iOS users.

Duration: 32:33

Show ref: SCOM0425

Following on from looking at the new Tabs in the Finder last week, this week we take a look at another new feature in the Finder - Tags.

Previously only available via third party applications, OS X Mavericks now has Tags support built right into the Finder. Even better, all the tags you might have created using third party apps using the Open Meta standard should also be available and accessible via the Finder.

In this segment, Todd Olthoff takes a look at why Tags are so useful, demonstrates how they have been implemented in OS X Mavericks and reviews the updated tags support in some of the more popular third party apps.
