ComScore: 44M trying Apple Music in US, iOS still gaining share

09/04, 12:25pm

New analytics data from ComScore has good news for Apple on two fronts: the research firm believes far more users in the US are giving Apple Music a tryout than has been previously reported, and that even in the quarter before the expected new model rollout, Apple's iPhone 6 line is still gaining share in the US, now largely taking it from drops in chief rival and Android flagship company Samsung rather than from smaller rivals as it had previously.

Hands On: Vent Luxe iPhone car mount

09/04, 10:20am

Not everyone likes having their car windscreen blocked by a big iPhone 6 Plus and in many states they can like it all they want, they're still not allowed to do it. Plus, we don't all have cars, some of us hire one only when we need it. For each of us, a full-blown car mount for our iPhones is overkill and instead the Vent Luxe is a contender. It's an iPhone car mount that you wedge onto the slats of your air conditioning vents.

09/04, 9:27am

If you've owned an iPhone for longer than about 20 minutes, chances are you're already aware of the vast amount of photography filter apps on the App Store. And, if you've taken a look at them, most of them offer the same thing: a couple dozen filters that are all remarkably the same. Occasionally you'll find one that stands out from the rest, but for the most part they're pretty much the same filters wrapped in a different UI. If you're tired of digging for a good filter app, we're going show you a filter app that goes above and beyond, and does it with style. Allow us to introduce you to Colorburn.

Pointers: Five OmniFocus Tips (OS X)

09/04, 8:28am

Not everyone has OmniFocus but maybe everyone should. True, it's a bit of a bionic To Do manager and overkill for many people plus more than perhaps most software, this kind of thing is very individual. You can hate OmniFocus and adore Todoist and we wouldn't think you're a bad person. Only, if you are an OmniFocus fan or you're just starting out with it, you are the sort of person who needs its powerful features yet may not be getting to grips with them. You will. Let's just take a jump forward now and get you using what we'd call its five best but least known excellent features.

Hands On: Knomad iPad Air Leather Portable Organizer by Knomo

09/04, 8:27am

Previously on MacNN... in a piece about Living With: Knomo Leather Case, we not only enthused about a bag we've had for seven years, we said it would take a huge shove before we'd move away from it. A
Then as we just said on the new One More Thing podcast, it's as if the makers said right, Challenge Accepted. For a week now we've been using a much more recent alternative, the Knomad iPad Air Leather Portable Organizer. Most of the things we liked about our case are here too and there are even reasons why we could now see a benefit to sometimes using this instead.

Hands On: Magic River 1.0 (iOS)

09/03, 4:13pm

We've become somewhat accustomed to games falling short aesthetically. Either the designs are too gaudy, or the sounds are too harsh, and after we play them we're left feeling a little disappointed. Every so often, we come across a game that absolutely knocks it out of the park when it comes to design. For us, Magic River is one of those games.
