Hamaâ€™s descriptively-named Wi-Fi SD/USB Data Reader for Apple Devices seems to be solving a problem that doesnâ€™t exist. To wit: you stick your photo-filled SD card (or USB stick) into this ~$ 100 box and it will beam the contents back to your Mac or iPad, all over the conveniently slow Wi-Fi network.
Why? The blurb says this battery-operated device is â€œideal for Apple devices with no possibilities of connection,â€ but what [Read More...]
Reeder has long been our favorite newsreading app on the iPhone and iPad, but with Google Reader set to be discontinued on June 30th, the future of Reeder has been up in the air. Google Reader is the engine that drives Reeder, but with no clear alternative right now, it’s not exactly sure what Reeder’s new engine will be come July 1st.
So Reeder’s doing the right thing [Read More...]
Reader is one of the most popular RSS apps out there for Apple devices. It’s available on OS X and iOS, and up until now it’s mainly been used in conjunction with Google Reader. Now that Google has announced its plans to kill Google Reader in the coming months, many are starting to look to alternative RSS aggregators.
Today the maker of the app Reeder, Silvio Rizzi, announced that Feedbin support will [Read More...]
Looking for an alternative to Google Reader? The might I suggest Skimr, a rather minimal web app which will let you read your feeds right there in the browser. It shows your feeds in a big, bright and beautiful single-column list, and when you open a feed it shows you the articles in a similarly cruft-free view.
It’s just about perfect, as long as you don’t have more than a few feeds.
Skimr [Read More...]
As you may already know, Google ReaderÂ will shutdown as of July 1, so now’s the time to look for a new RSS reader. If you’re a longtime user, you may not be familiar with the other options available to you, but don’t worry â€” there are plenty out there, so you don’t need to go without your news.
We’ve compiled a list of the best cloud-based and local [Read More...]
You might be aware by now that Google announced they are shutting down Google Reader, the longtime RSS reading favorite. Google Reader will be put to rest on July 1 of this year, and chances are good that will impact at least some of you reading this. We know that over 15,000 of you use Google Reader alone every day to read OSXDaily’s RSS feed, that’s about 1/4 of our [Read More...]
So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye.
Goodbye Google Reader, we hardly knew ye.
In an official post at the Google Reader blog and the Google blog, the search giant has announced today that it will retire Google Reader, a fantastic RSS service in its own right, shutting it down on July 1, 2013.
Software engineer Alan Green took to the Google REader blog to say the [Read More...]
I consider Apple’s Lightning SD card adapter to be a step backwards – the original camera connection kit not only included an SD dongle and a USB port, but it also provided them in convenient, pocketable, non-be-cabled form.
Thanks to the fine folks at Photojojo, though, you can now relive the excitement of not using a cable to plug in your SD card with the Lightning SD Reader.
There are a couple of connectors, all [Read More...]
The Omni Group has been testing its new OmniFocus Mail Drop, a service which lets you forward emails to a secret address, whereupon they end up — moments later — in your OmniFocus inbox. This means that we can finally (finally!) add emails direct to our Omnifocus from our iPhones and iPads.
But with a little jiggery-pokery, you can finagle some automated internet services to do much more. In this post I’ll show you how I [Read More...]
Neat, clear and clever: Marvin for iOS.
Marvin is a neat little e-book reader for iOS – free for now, but likely to cost about $ 2 by next week. It’s packed with useful features for serious readers and students, plus some ingenious new ideas we’ve not seen in other e-book reading apps.
Note from the outset that Marvin only reads ePub files – widely used and very popular, but not the [Read More...]
