Open iMovie iOS Projects in iMovie on the Mac

At last, it’s possible to take a movie you’ve edited in iMovie on an iPad or iPhone and bring it to iMovie on the Mac and pick up where you left off. Serenity Caldwell at iMore explains how to do it. This is a capability iMovie had quite a while ago that disappeared with iMovie ...

How Pro is the iPad Pro?

In my latest column for The Seattle Times, I speculate just how “pro” the upcoming iPad Pro will be. The hardware looks impressive, but will superior hardware be constrained by an operating system designed for consumers? Part of the issue is that loaded term “pro,” which means different things for different people. I’m looking forward ...

iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, and watchOS 2 Coverage at TidBITS

How to Remove Duplicate Events on Apple Watch

Yesterday my Apple Watch started showing duplicate events in the Calendar app and on the watch face (when events overlap, an exclamation point icon appears before the next event on the face).

Article: Sharing Lightroom mobile Photos in iOS Apps

I’m happy to be writing for Macworld again, starting with a review of the new OmniOutliner 2.3 for iOS. This version now runs on the iPhone as well as the iPad, which means you can view or edit outlines when the inspiration strikes or when you have free time anywhere. It also takes full advantage ...

Apple Ad about iPad Filmmaking Shot Using an iPad Air 2

Apple introduced a new commercial during the Oscars that touts the iPad as a video capture and editing platform. A voiceover by Martin Scorcese talks about being creative in a practical, this-is-work way. I never like the inspirational value of that phrase. Dreaming is a way of trivializing the process, the obsession that carries you ...

Lightroom mobile 1.3 Adds an Unexpected Editing Capability

While everyone was focused on the news of the new Photos for OS X developer preview, Adobe released a very interesting update to Lightroom mobile, its mobile companion to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. In previous versions of the app, there was a truly hidden, super powerful editing feature: not only could you copy adjustments made on ...

MacVoices Appearance about the Connected Apple Family

Last week I appeared on Chuck Joiner’s excellent MacVoices podcast to talk about my latest book, co-written with Dan Moren, The Connected Apple Home: Discover the Rich Apple Ecosystem of the Mac, iPhone, iPad, and AppleTV. As always it was fun to be on Chuck’s show, and we talked about how Apple’s devices are converging ...
