Duration: 30:08

Show ref: SCOM0493

Take a great application and make it even better! That's what Rogue Amoeba have done with their flagship Audio application - Audio Hijack 3.

Now renamed as simply Audio Hijack, the "Pro" label has been dropped as the application should really be considered as an all purpose tool, rather than a Pro tool. Further to this, they've simplified the user interface and included a number of presets for different project types to get you up and running quickly.

Show ref: SCOI0207

Time for another update show and it's 1Password for iOS.

Twitter... you either love it or hate it! I'm strictly in the "love it" camp, but have been disappointed by the lack of updates to my favourite Twitter app - Tweetbot for iPad.
