Introduction to iOS7 - Part 2

Date: 28th September 2013

Duration: 20:06

Show ref: SCOI0130

Following on from last week, I take a further look at some of the new features in iOS 7.

As well as the cosmetic changes, a lot has changed "under the hood" and I set out to expose some of the new configuration settings. iOS 7 relies more heavily on gestures than previous versions, but some of the gestures aren't so obvious. So in the second segment of the show, I take a look at some hidden gestures in some of the standard iOS apps, as well as giving you a few pointers on some inconsistencies.

Finally I take a look at how AirDrop works between iOS devices when sharing Photos, Safari Links and Contacts - providing you have a compatible iOS device.

Sign + Encrypt Email and Files on Mac - GPGTools

Date: 3rd August 2013

Duration: 33:32

Show ref: SCOM0411

Without being overly dramatic, recent events have shown that your private data may not be as private as you think. Storing any unencrypted data or emails on remote services may eventually be accessed and read by official and unofficial prying eyes.

The tutorial takes you through the simple process of installing the Open Sourced GPGTools including GPG Mail 2. Its much simpler to setup than you might think, and once setup, signing and encrypting email is as easy as clicking a button.

Even if you don't intend to encrypt all your emails, the tutorial shows you how to get your own public and private keys, so other people can send you signed and encrypted emails and files.

Sign + Encrypt Email and Files on iOS - iPGMail

Date: 3rd August 2013

Duration: 23:27

Show ref: SCOI0122

Without being overly dramatic, recent events have shown that your private data may not be as private as you think. Storing any unencrypted data or emails on remote services may eventually be accessed and read by official and unofficial prying eyes.

This week's IOS tutorial takes you through the simple process of using iGPMail, an inexpensive iPad and iPhone app that allows you to digitally sign and encrypt email before sending via the iOS Mail App. It also allows you to check the authenticity of received mail and decode any encrypted mail sent to you.

As seen in this week's Mac show (SCOM0422), it's really simple to generate a private and public key using the GPGTools and in the iOS show, I show you how to import the keys into iGPMail via Dropbox and then use those keys to sign and encrypt your emails.

I also take a looks at encrypting files in your DropBox account using your private key.

I know I use the iPad a lot when demoing software on the show, so this one is all about the iPhone.
