Duration: 44:45

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.

One of the joys of having a Mac is having access to tools that allow you to automate common tasks which increase your productivity. BetterTouchTool is a unique twist on automating your Mac as it does so using various input devices that are connected to your Mac such as the Magic Trackpad, Mouse, Keyboard, and even your iOS device. Each of these devices can be set up using BetterTouchTool to run automations with the click of a mouse, taps on a trackpad or even by drawing gestures on your trackpad.

In this screencast we will walk through how to set these automations up on various devices. We will also show practical ways to set up your automations based on global settings or even on an app by app basis. So if you have ever wanted to run automations with minimal effort, then BetterTouchTool may be for you.

Tip - macOS - Preview Tips - Pt 3

Following on in the occasional series about the fantastic Preview app on the Mac, this weekly tip video covers some of the "party tricks" built right into Preview, and exposes a surprise in iOS too.

Firstly, I demonstrate how to extract beautiful full sized Application Icons from your installed apps with a few simple keystrokes, and use Preview to resize and export them.

Then I move on to the really smart way of setting up signatures in Preview on the Mac - either using your trackpad, or using your camera to snap your signature to use in your PDF forms.

Unfortunately there is no separate Preview app for iOS, but did you know that you can actually access Preview functionality on your iOS device, even creating and applying signatures? Annotate, create Loupes, add Text - it's all available for free in iOS - even if slightly hidden away.

What's more, any annotations you make to your documents will sync between your Mac and iOS, but even your signature "Library" will sync too.

Watch this week's tip and all will be revealed!

Reminders on the Mac, iPhone & Apple Watch

Reminders is a surprisingly powerful application that comes with macOS, iOS and watchOS. With Reminders, you can bridge the gap between your calendar and a to do list. Reminders can be set for when you arrive or leave a location, they can be set for specific times and dates, they can repeat, and they can even be set to remind you to do something when you get into or out of your car.

Reminders even lets you share lists with other Apple users so you can collaborate on tasks. You can use Siri to set up Reminders on your Mac, but Siri on iOS and the Apple Watch, makes Reminders the best tool for when you're on the run.
