Discovering great iPad art applications for creativity

Let’s take a look at Enlight. I am constantly amazed by the quality of the iPad art applications we have available for making innovative, fantastic digital art. One of my favourite iPad and iPhone art applications has been iColorama. I find it’s quite easy to get into a situation where you enjoy using a particular application so much you forget to try some of the others. Especially with an application Read More …

Problems caused by operating system upgrades As is often the case when there is an upgrade to the Mac operating system something gets broken. There are bound to be one of two things that don’t get checked when the company is sending out the beta versions of the new operating system. Some things are not quite so important to the beta testing group. This may be the case with encryption Read More …

Back in the land of the living – As far as writing is concerned

During the summertime when I only have one day off per week. I really don’t get a lot of writing done. You can just imagine how happy I get on the 1st of October when I’m suddenly free and able to get into the swing of putting words onto pages once more. It does take a couple of days to adjust to having the freedom and being able to get Read More …

Aurora HDR 2017 Photography Application

A colourful way of seeing the world I’ve always liked HDR photos because of the heightened and out of this world style of the colours and ultra-real view it gives me. It reminds me of when I was younger and I got my first pair of Polaroid sunglasses. When I put the glasses on, all the colours seem to be stronger and brighter. The blue of the sky was better Read More …

Third Party Keyboards in the Middle of the Night

Bit of a headache so I was finding it difficult to sleep. Got up to take a pill 💊 and have a look at my computer. Loving the Swiping Swype way of writing. It’s a great way to type quickly on the virtual keyboards. You don’t have to be that accurate with finding the keys as you Swype. The software behind it makes good guesses at what you wanted. Sometimes Read More …

Loving my iPhone

I’m finding that having a larger iPhone is really very useful. I can do lots more things with the device and quite often I would rather do it with the iPhone rather than picking up the iPad. There are still things with the iPad is better at such as anything where I can use the Apple Pencil. Loving the Apple Pencil too Yesterday I was trying to do something with Read More …

Writing with the DragonDictate application V6.0.1

This is with an update to the crappy first version came out with version 6. It’s still not showing the commands window and I’m a bit surprised because it’s supposed to have been fixed. It’s the same as before when I click on the show commands in the status window (That’s the right-hand of the three icons), nothing happens at all. The dictation seems to work quite nicely and the Read More …

Got The iPhone 7 and iOS 10 – Loving it!

Collecting from Barcelona I thought I’d have a trip to Barcelona to collect the iPhone 7 although I normally have the new things from Apple sent to my house. The reason I did it this way is because it’s likely the couriers would not get the iPhone to me on the proper day. They always seem to have trouble finding our house. Also with me being at work there was Read More …

Managing Photos in Photos App

This morning I spent time with the application Photos and I was really quite impressed with the way I could have it find faces for me. The more faces you confirm as a named person the better it gets finding them. Because of this you need to go back to it a couple of times and allow it to look for more photos within your photo albums. It is funny Read More …

The joy of using Siri on Mac to do stuff

When I saw that the GM version of the beta was available I decided to take the plunge. There’s not much loss in terms of time to install the operating system on the top of what was already there. If I decide later I want to do a clean install I still have the installation disk I made ready to use. The first thing I tried after setting up macOS Read More …
