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.

Time for an update show on two of my favourite apps - ScreenFlow and LiquidText.

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.

Duration: 39:26

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.

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.

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.

Interact - iOS Contact Management

Date: 19th February 2016

Duration: 16:26

Show ref: SCOI0249

One of the failings of the standard iOS Contacts app is the lack of control over groups. In fact, you can’t organise or add to existing groups from the Contacts app at all!

Interact gives you that feature, and much more.

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

In addition, Interact allows you to send messages or emails with attachments to multiple members within groups and, using iOS Share extensions, from virtually any app.
