How to Force Reboot an iPhone & iPad - 0 views

  •  
    "Rarely, an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch will become completely unresponsive and errant, leading to what amounts to a frozen device that just won't do anything. The most obvious indicator of this is when something on screen just cease up completely and the touch screen becomes unresponsive to all input, and clicking on any of the hardware buttons also does nothing. Fortunately you can almost always remedy these unusual situations by forcibly rebooting the iOS device, a low tech solution that works to remedy most of these issues, it only takes a few seconds, and which is really pretty easy."

5 apps for signing documents with your iPhone and iPad | Macworld - 0 views

  •  
    "The dance of printing a document, taking a pen and signing it, then scanning and emailing it to a banker or client is one I think we've all done. It's also extremely inefficient, not to mention annoying.

    The Mac's handy-dandy Preview app makes it possible to fill out and digitally sign a document, but it's just as easy to sign from an iOS device, and of course there is no shortage of apps for that. I've whittled that selection down to these five that cover all the bases, letting you sign, fill out forms, connect to your cloud storage accounts, and use's iOS 8's share extension, among other features. The differences between them boil down to aesthetics, workflow, and pricing-which means one of them is probably just right for you."

    "Tired of your iPhone or iPad running out of storage space? If you're an avid music listener and use your iPhone or iPad as such with an extensive list of songs packed into your device, head on after the jump to check out how you can easily shrink the footprint of your audio files on your iOS device's internal storage.

    You may already know that higher the bit rate of an audio file, the larger the file size will be. Typically iTunes purchases max out at 256 kbps, with CD rips topping out at 320. On average, a user is likely to find all kinds of bit rates in their library and chances are that the average Joe wouldn't even notice the quality difference, until or unless you have a God gifted ability to differentiate between the slightest change"

    "I learned a little trick for creating screencast videos from my iPad and I thought it might be useful for many of you who have a regular need to demo apps.
    If, like me, you are working on a Mac, you probably already know how powerful your QuickTime Player is for making impromtu videos or desktop screencasts and exporting them.  (Of course, you can do any fancy post production in a video app later, but QuickTime is sooooo handy.)"
