HoudahGeo 5

Date: 24th August 2018

Duration: 53:27

Show ref: SCOM0763

Handling the location and metadata for your photos can be an arduous task. Many photo managing apps don't make this easy and often times the metadata is only contained in the library and doesn't go along with your image files if you move them to another library.

HoudahGeo 5 is an application that streamlines adding location and other metadata to your files. The best part is that it writes that information to the files themselves instead of the library's catalog. HoudahGeo can also communicate with programs like Photos and Lightroom to make sure that those libraries are aware of the changes and perform the necessary updates inside the library.

This week Todd takes you on a tour of HoudahGeo 5. He walks you through the various ways to get photos into HoudahGeo 5 and then covers all of the geocoding and metadata options. You also learn how to add metadata to the files and share them with outside libraries. Exporting that added information to other services that read them is covered in the last section of the show.

Vectornator Pro

Date: 3rd August 2018

Duration: 52:56

Show ref: SCOM0757

Adobe Illustrator and Affinity Designer are the big names in vector design programs. These are highly capable, but highly complex programs. Affinity Designer for iPad just came out and it's also highly capable but with a steep learning curve. If you want to learn to design with vectors, or you only need to make simple designs, these programs can be overkill.

The free Vectornator Pro for iOS might be just what you need. While an Apple Pencil with an iPad Pro is a fantastic way to create artwork with Vectornator Pro, it also works well on the small screens of the iPhone.

Don't be fooled into thinking Vectornator Pro can't be used for more advanced design. Allison demonstrates Bezier curves, gradients, layers, and more. Vectornator Pro even integrates with Adobe's Creative Cloud and has built-in assets for building artwork for mobile applications. And did we mention that it's free?

Agenda - Note Taking

Date: 27th July 2018

Duration: 39:17

Show ref: SCOM0755

One thing we're not short of is note taking apps for the Mac or iOS.

Agenda approaches note taking in a new and unique way. With close integration with your calendars, you can now organise and access your notes based on events. With a beautiful user interface and a full-featured editing environment, Agenda can adapt to many different functions to boost your productivity and make you more organised.

Available for both macOS and iOS, Agenda utilises iCloud for seamless syncing between all of your devices and recently was awarded an Apple Design Award at WWDC 2018.

Agenda is free (and will remain so) but has a unique business model to ensure the app is continually developed and supported: An in-app purchase option unlocks current premium features, and any new ones that are added in the twelve-month period following the purchase. Agenda does not have a subscription model.

In this week's full tutorial, Don shows you Agenda in great detail on the Mac, including its current premium features. He also goes over the app on iPad, showing some of the main features so you can see how they translate to iOS.

Things 3 Update

Date: 20th July 2018

Duration: 44:45

Show ref: SCOM0753

It was just a year ago that we took a look at the newest version of Things, and examined all of the interface changes and new functionality that were added to an already well-designed application. Since then, the team at Cultured Code have added six new updates to further increase the functionality of Things 3.

In this screencast, Todd takes a look at updates that both improve automation and make managing your tasks easier.

He also demonstrates some new workflows using third-party applications (for both macOS and iOS) that can be leveraged to take advantage of these new automation features included in Things 3.

WhenWorks - Appointments & Scheduling

Date: 13th July 2018

Duration: 34:52

Show ref: SCOM0751

If you're sick and tired of the constant exchange of emails to try and schedule a meeting or book an appointment, WhenWorks might be your ideal solution.

WhenWorks is an iOS app for iPhone or iPad that integrates with most calendar services.

As a host, you set up some event types and rules, then send out invitations. The recipients (called guests) receive the email invitation and can pick a suitable date and time from a web-based service - they don't need to be WhenWorks users themselves.

Once the guest picks a time slot, your calendar is updated and an email confirmation is sent out. Either the host or the guest can reschedule or cancel the appointment with just a few clicks. Want to have single point of contact without sending out invitations every time? You can make your available time slots public and send anyone a web link.

If you need to set up one-to-one meetings on a regular basis, WhenWorks can be a tremendous boon!

Show ref: SCOM0747

OmniFocus 3 is out for iOS, and it makes managing your tasks even easier. While the biggest change is the adoption of tags, there are several new features in OmniFocus 3 that can take your task management to the next level. Whether you're new to OmniFocus or you've been using it for years, there are several compelling reasons to upgrade to version 3.

In this tutorial, we'll show you how to use the different perspective views to filter your tasks, how to harness the full power of tags for getting things done, and even show you how to set up a few custom perspectives of your own.

Archive Utility & Keka

Date: 22nd June 2018

Duration: 46:28

Show ref: SCOM0745

Sending and storing files and folders in the most secure and efficient way means you need to adopt some or all of three core technologies - compression, archiving and encryption.

Thankfully, these are all available via macOS, either as part of the OS or in the Archive Utility application.

In this week's tutorial, Allison starts with some definition of just what compression, archiving and encryption means and the many standards that are available. In the next part, she goes over the many options available in Archive Utility. Whilst Archive Utility is available and provides basic functionality, it's possible to use additional features and functionality with an inexpensive 3rd party app called Keka.

Keka was updated to version 1.1 during the post production phase of the tutorial, so we've added an extra section describing the additional features and changes to the UI in v1.1.

Numbers & Keynote - 2018 Update

Date: 15th June 2018

Duration: 33:00

Show ref: SCOM0743

Following on from the recent Pages 2018 update tutorial, Don explores in this week's tutorial the 2018 updates to Numbers and Keynote, Apple's spreadsheet and presentation applications.

Numbers

As Apple have rewritten all of the iWork applications with the same code base, many of the new features are present in all three applications. With Numbers, some specific improvements have been made to controlling the import of external files on both the Mac and iOS, as well as some long-overdue enhancements to sorting and filtering in the iOS version.

Keynote

The Mac version of Keynote receives all of the standard updates delivered with Pages and Numbers including new shapes, image galleries and collaboration, and more. Most notable however is the addition of Apple Pencil support in the iOS version, along with the ability to animate line drawings on your slides. No Apple Pencil? Then you can use your finger!
