RebelwithoutaClue (Posts: 4108; Member since: 05 Apr 2013) I knew some of them couldnt been true, didn't think they were photoshopped just typed incorrectly on purpose.

The iPhone’s auto-correct function is a source of endless entertainment and frustration for iOS users.

For several years, pundits have been declaring that the death of email is imminent. First, we heard that Generation Y prefers text messaging to email. Most recently, speculation has it that Facebook's "social inbox" will make email obsolete. Nonetheless, many of us — particularly business users — still depend heavily on email. For that segment of the population, an important criterion in selecting a smartphone or tablet is how well it handles your email needs. That becomes even more of an issue if you're like me; I receive a very large volume of mail (hundreds of messages per day), I use multiple email accounts for different purposes, and I rely on filtering and folders to keep my email organized.Let's look at the pros and the cons of using various popular mobile platforms when it comes to viewing, responding to, and managing email.Research in Motion's BlackBerry was born to email. It started out as a pager that integrated with enterprise mail systems, before it morphed … [Read more...] about Choosing the best mobile device for managing your email
Apple surprised the entire tech community when they announced the release of third-party keyboards for iOS 8 at WWDC '14. While it's not a new idea for smartphones, it is a new idea for iOS users, as this type of extensibility hasn't yet been seen on these devices. When iOS 8 was first released, there were several extensions, including keyboard extensions that were released, but none were particularly good.Now that the apps have had a few months to mature, there are a few keyboard apps that have stood out, as they can both enhance your productivity or add additional functionality to your device. Here are three of the best keyboard apps for iOS 8 to date.There are a few keyboards that let you swipe your finger across the screen to spell out a word instead of hunting and pecking for the letters. Swype is my favorite keyboard in this category, though, and for a few reasons: First, the keyboard doesn't require Full Access or network access in order to use it (with Full Access … [Read more...] about Three of the best keyboard apps for iOS 8
Whether it’s the slim butterfly mechanism of the new MacBook or the bouncy fabric of the Smart Keyboard, the feel and travel of the letters under our fingers has as much impact on our productivity as the speed of the processor and size of the screen.It’s no different on our touchscreen devices, and thanks to third-party developers and iOS’s now-open keyboard API, the iOS typing experience has gone from ordinary to extraordinary. Hundreds of apps all claim to speed up, smarten, and otherwise improve upon Apple’s own QuickType keyboard. For example, the slide typing method pioneered by Swype has transformed not just how but also how much we type. But which ones are the smartest, most comfortable, and best of the bunch? Whether you want to type faster, use one hand, add a funky design, or see more of the screen, you’ll find a multitude of options in the App Store—and even some of Apple’s biggest competitors are getting in on the … [Read more...] about The best third-party keyboards for iPhone and iPad
Apple's new iOS 8 update adds a ton of productivity-boosting features for business users. That includes the ability to install a third-party keyboard on your iPhone or iPad in place of Apple's default touch screen keyboard, for the first time. Apple's keyboard isn't bad; it offers an attractive layout and pretty good typo correction. But there are still good reasons to think about switching. Other keyboards offer great features that Apple's lacks, including the ability to use "swipe" typing, better predictive software, and quicker access to numbers and special characters. With the right third-party keyboard installed, you can type more quickly and accurately on your iOS 8 device. But before we get to a list of my favorite iOS 8 keyboards, there are a few details to clear up. iOS 8 keyboard restrictions Apple is finally letting users replace the default keyboard in iOS 8, but third-party keyboards are still subject to some pretty tough restrictions — presumably to … [Read more...] about Best Keyboards for iOS 8
Thinner, lighter and more powerful than last year's model, the iPad Air 2 is a tablet that's hard to beat. It's the sleekest tablet on the market, and its 9.7-inch display is beautiful to behold. Plus, the addition of Apple's Touch ID fingerprint scanner gives it a big security boost. But as a work device, Apple's flagship iPad still has some noteworthy shortcomings — especially with so many great Windows-powered slates to choose from. That bottom line is that the iPad Air 2 is a very good productivity device, but it's far from perfect. Design How thin can tablets get? The iPad Air 2 sets a new bar for tablet slimness, with a thickness of just 0.24 inches (6.1 mm), down from original iPad Air's 0.29 inches (7.37 mm). It's a slight difference, but I immediately noticed that the device felt noticeably thinner, without losing any of the sturdiness of last year's model. Samsung's Galaxy Tab S 10.1 is a bit thicker at 0.26 inches (6.6 mm), but it also packs a slightly larger … [Read more...] about iPad Air 2 Full Review: Is It Good for Business?
Apple introduced a slew of new productivity-boosting features with the launch of iOS 8 on the iPhone and iPad this fall. But now Google has responded with a major OS update of its own, dubbed Android 5.0 Lollipop. Both operating systems introduce updated interfaces, new ways to interact with notifications, updated security features and more. So which software release is better for business users? Here's a head-to-head comparison of the new features in Android 5.0 Lollipop and iOS 8. Design Design updates are about more than aesthetics. Good design can make a smartphone or tablet interface intuitive and easy to use, making you more productive. That's the main idea behind Lollipop, which represents the single biggest Android redesign yet. Dozens of Android apps have been updated with streamlined interfaces, and apps in general have a more consistent look across the board. And Google's own apps, like Maps, Gmail and Drive, are actually easier to use. For example, the Schedule View inside … [Read more...] about Android 5.0 Lollipop vs iOS 8: Which is Better for Business?
