iMore has published another article of mine, this one detailing how to set up and use the new News app under iOS 9: How to use the News app on your iPhone or iPad. News is an interesting beast. It’s one way for Apple to get customers’ attentions in an area where they’re already looking: ...

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 ...

Help me evaluate the state of the iPad for photography

In 2012 I saw the potential of the iPad (then on its second generation) as a tool that photographers could take advantage of, and pitched my editors at Peachpit Press to write a book about it.

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 ...
