Tap Forms 5 is an extremely capable database application for the Mac, iPad and iPhone.

In this week’s episode, Allison Sheridan takes us through the setup and usage of a hidden iOS gem - RecoLive Multicam. 

For just $4.99 USD and a few spare iPhones or iPads, you can create a Multicam setup with live camera switching, selectable audio and a huge range of professional transitions - you can even use your Mac Desktop or any camera connected to your Mac as a video source in the MultiCam shoot.

Record all your video devices live simultaneously, and let RecoLive MultiCam composite a final video directly on your iOS device, or export the multiple camera angles to separate video files and use iMovie or FCP X to create your final video. 

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.


One of the problems of keeping on top of the latest developments in Mac and iOS is the sheer number of updates to apps over time. These can range from minor to major updates, and are designed to fix issues or introduce brand new functionality. So for this week, I’m going to take a look at a number apps that I’ve previously covered on ScreenCastsOnline, and bring you up to speed with the latest updates. 

The three apps are Hazel, Ulysses & Garageband Live Loops

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!

We had a brief look at Scanner Pro 7 in a previous show, but I was very impressed with its capabilities and wanted to drill down a bit more.

Duration: 41:38

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.

Affinity Photo - Part 2

Date: 8th July 2016

Duration: 48:04

Show ref: SCOM0565

Photoshop is a fantastic app, but for some people it’s much too powerful (or too complex) for their limited needs, and for others, they don’t want to be paying for an app on a ongoing subscription basis.

Affinity Photo is a terrific alternative to Photoshop - all for a single one off payment!

As well as some fantastic Apple Photo extensions that can be used in the Apple Photos app, Affinity Photo can also be used as a standalone application, with some incredibly powerful features - all aimed at helping you edit your digital images like a Pro.

Allison Sheridan previously covered the Affinity Photo extensions in episode SCOM0559.


In this episode, she takes a look at using Affinity Photo as a standalone application, and exposes some of the power of this fully featured app.

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

Affinity Photo is a terrific alternative to Photoshop - all for a single one off payment!

There’s so much to cover, Allison will be featuring Affinity Photo in two parts - in this initial episode, she’ll take a look at using the wide range of Apple Photo Extensions provided as part of Affinity Photo.

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.
