Notable apps and app updates for Sept. 26, 2016

On a regular basis, Apple World Today posts a list of notable new apps or app updates that have been released. They may not necessarily be new, but they're popular and deserve mention. Here are today's picks.

Mac Data Recovery Guru requires macOS 10.7 or higher. It costs $89 and is available directly from the publisher's website. A free scan-only download is also...

Having come a long way from the awkward Apple Music onstage presence at WWDC, Drake’s relationship with Apple has seemingly only been on the up and up for the entertainer. From releasing a surprise mixtape on iTunes last year, to an exclusive stream of Views, all the way down to his own Beats 1 radio show. It looks like Drake shows no signs of stopping.

After teasing it on his Instagram (and then removing it) it looks like Drake’s short film, Please Forgive Me, is now available to stream exclusively on Apple Music. Potentially riding off that high, the artist also shared a picture on Instagram commemorating Apple Music’s largest stream count for an album ever.

New Mac Trojan uses the Russian space program as a...

Security researchers have found a new Mac OS X malware that appears to be targeting the aerospace industry.

The Trojan, called Komplex, can download, execute, and delete files from an infected Mac, according to security firm Palo Alto Networks. Interestingly, the Trojan will also save a PDF document to the infected system concerning the Russian space program.

The PDF document details planned Russian space projects from 2016 to 2025, but it acts as a decoy, Palo Alto Networks said in Monday blog post.

In reality, the Trojan is a package of tools that will attempt to secretly communicate with its creators' command-and-control servers. This includes sending back data on the version, username, and process list running on the infected system. The Trojan can also receive instructions, and it will forward the results to the control servers.

Review: Mass Fidelity Core Bluetooth Speaker

Mass Fidelity's Core ($599) looks to bring the performance of larger high-end speakers into a small, portable Bluetooth speaker using wave field synthesis. The black and chrome speaker houses five custom designed drivers and a woofer which fires downward, all with 120W of power. The speaker comes with its own AC adapter, and Mass Fidelity claims that Core's battery life is an impressive 12 hours. Core can also connect to other Core units to create a multi-room wireless network. Mass Fidelity notes that Core is a Bluetooth Class 1 receiver, which should minimize dropouts and extend range — though the company only lists the speaker's Bluetooth range at 30 feet in its spec sheet.{/exp:char_limit}

A-Shirt Makes Apple-Inspired Shirts for Apple Fans

They produce Apple-inspired T-shirts for fans of the company. They work on a subscription model where you get a new shirt every two months. The shirts are designed by designers all over the world. In the image I included, the white T-shirt with the drawings of the Two Steves is the current shirt being offered. Each shirt is a one-time production, and once they’re shipped, they’re gone. A-shirt even destroys the printing framed. The company also offers members a lot of content about how each shirt is created, the dyes used, the material, etc. You can sign up to get your first shirt for $25, with subsequent shirts at $50. If you commit to longer terms, the price-per-month decreases.

If you live in America and you’ve seen more than one doctor in your lifetime, you know there’s no central database where all of your medical data lives. Instead, each health care provider has a separate record, and rarely are they ever merged.

Apple is reportedly working on electronic health record software that will take advantage of all the data collected from HealthKit apps and use it in more meaningful ways—like to diagose medical conditions—and create a centralized place for all that information to live.

Part of that effort is coming from the team that made up Gliimpse, an electronic health record database centralization startup Apple acquired earlier this year. According to Bloomberg...

Microsoft debuts new Office 365 app for bartenders,...

Chances are you began your career busing tables, working retail, or doing IT work, carefully planning out your shifts week by week. A new Microsoft app for Office 365, called StaffHub, seeks to make this chore easier and replace the break room calendar. 

At first glance, StaffHub seems like just another shared calendar from Outlook or the like. There are a couple of key differences, though: Workers can swap shifts themselves or ask others to cover for them. StaffHub’s also a messaging app, so, for instance, one cook can send another cook a message about an ingredient shipment that’s scheduled to arrive. (Microsoft didn’t say, but those employee-to-employee messages would presumably be monitored by an employer.) The other difference from your typical shared calendar, unfortunately, is the price: A company must be signed up with at least an Office 365 kiosk license to use it, which costs $4 per user, per month.

Obscura: Shoot RAW images with your iOS 10 iPhone

Automatic (L) and manual (R) controls (image via obscuraapp.com)

For most people shooting photos with a digital camera or iPhone, there's not a lot of thought put into what format the file is saved in. Back in the days when storage was limited both in SD cards and smartphones, files were always saved in JPEG format, meaning that they were compressed immediately to save space. But compression has an effect on the quality of digital photos, so professionals save in RAW, uncompressed format. iOS 10 now has the ability to work with RAW files, but the standard Camera app still resorts to JPEG. That's why apps like Obscura (US$4.99) from developer Ben Rice McCarthy are gaining popularity as a way to shoot RAW images with the iPhone or iPad.

Obscura works on the iPhone SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, and the 9.7" iPad Pro, and provides the type of manual control that usually has...

HPE and Apple: The Speed of Image Transformation


Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Apple are very different companies this decade, having shifted their models from a strategic customer/innovation focus to one that's more tactical -- and tied far more closely to quarterly profit. They are hardly alone, and this speaks to why Michael Dell and Joe Tucci worked so hard to take their companies private, because this unfortunate trend is not tied to any one industry or any one country. Both HPE and Apple increasingly are defined not by creative products but by complaining customers.

Review: Lutron Caséta In-Wall Dimming Kit is the...

Apple’s HomeKit feature lets you control “smart” lights with Siri or Apple’s new Home app on iOS 10, and there are generally two ways to make your home lighting more intelligent. You can change your light bulbs to “connected” bulbs that talk to a bridge over Wi-Fi, or you can replace your light switches with “connected” switches that take the same bridge approach.

The Lutron Caséta kit takes the latter approach by replacing your existing light switches with smart switches that make your traditional light bulbs work with Siri. There are notable differences between both approaches including cost and ease-of-setup which I’ll unpack below. And if bells and whistles don’t impress you, Lutron takes the crown for having the most elegant solution to HomeKit lighting with one exception…

News: Apple lacks lobbying power in fight with EU

Apple is fighting with the European Union over $14.5 billion in taxes without the usual lobbying force of a major company, The Wall Street Journal reports. The company spent just over $1 million in 2015 lobbying the EU, when Google parent company Alphabet dropped $4.5 million and employs more than 10 full-time lobbyists. American companies lack direct national representation within EU institutions, leaving them at a disadvantage when competing against…

Hands-on with the new ceramic Apple Watch Edition...

Today we’re taking a look at the new Apple Watch Edition. This year, Apple switched it up and ditched the all gold models in favor of ceramic. Why ceramic you might ask? Well first off, it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than solid gold, but it’s also four times stronger than stainless steel, which makes it the most scratch resistant Apple Watch available…

Feature Request: Siri’s arrival on Mac makes it all...

Now that Siri has finally arrived on the Mac, Apple’s intelligent assistant just got a whole lot more useful. But some users are finding that this has only increased their frustration – because the service is unable to cope with more than one language.

Making Siri bilingual might, at first glance, seem an unreasonable request. After all, it’s taken speech recognition a very long time indeed to reliably understand one language at a time. I first tried a prototype system way back in the 1980s, when it was utterly hopeless. I’d try another one every few years, but it’s only in the past seven or eight years that it’s been any good.

But there are many places in the world where it’s extremely common to speak more than one language. In particular, speaking English and a local language is the norm in many countries. Which means that you may well be...

“Scores” of health-care experts hired by Apple in recent years are building improved electronic health record software that can better analyze and understand the implications of patient data, the article adds, quoting unnamed “people familiar with the team’s plans.” The ultimate goal is to turn HealthKit into a tool that improves diagnoses, they added.

“The system could chip away at two problems that plague the industry and have stumped other specialist firms in the field:...

Apple has said many times that it sees medical and health initiatives as a big area for expansion in the future. Some of these plans are now actively being developed, according to Bloomberg. Firstly, Apple is working on new sleep tracking and fitness apps for Apple Watch that take advantage of the heart rate sensor for insight.

Apple is yet to offer sleep analysis of any kind in its wearable and its current Heart Rate app in watchOS 3 is very limited. The report says the new heart rate app will be more advanced, measuring a person’s fitness by observing the amount of time it takes for a heartbeat to fall from a peak to resting rate. The company is also apparently exploring ways to dramatically expand the functionality of...

Apple acknowledges iOS 10 security flaw that reduces...

Well, this is why they invented bug fixes and updates.

A new discovery by iOS and security forensics company Elcomsoft has revealed that encrypted iOS backups saved via iTunes are now much easier to crack in iOS 10 than in recent years. The change in security is apparently due to a new password verification method in iOS 10.

The discovery focuses on the backup method, which in iOS 10, apparently “skips certain security checks” that were present in past versions of iOS. This allows passwords to be attempted signficnatly faster than before. The new backup method works alongside the old back up method, meaning that for pre-iOS 10 backups, the old method is used.

Elcomsoft offered the following comment regarding the discovery:

How to watch and stream tonight’s Clinton/Trump 2016...

Tonight’s debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is likely to be the most-watched presidential debate in history. A little background: 

The first debate for the 1960 election drew over 66 million viewers out of a population of 179 million, making it one of the most-watched broadcasts in U.S. television history. The 1980 debates drew 80 million viewers out of a 226 million. Recent debates have drawn decidedly smaller audiences, ranging from 46 million for the first 2000 debate to a high of over 67 million for the first debate in 2012.

There’s no shortage of ways to watch the debate, whether that’s on broadcast TV, Apple TV, Mac, iPad or iPhone – here are just a few of them …

Speed test comparison of every iPhone released

Since no one can ever get enough of speed tests and comparisons, the cool cats at EverythingApplePro released a comparison video of the iPhone SE against every model iPhone ever made.

All in all, 13 iPhones were tested including the newly released iPhone SE in order to demonstrate not just how fast the iPhone SE is when compared with the iPhone 5s and 5c it effectively replaced, but also how well it compares with the latest and greatest handsets to come out of Apple’s Cupertino headquarters. There’s even a brief segment on running temperatures for all phones.

The results offer a nice series of benchmarks and show that the iPhone SE is a pretty powerful handset thanks to its iPhone 6s internal components. It’s also impressive to see what the newest iPhone can do, especially when...

How to use tabbed windows in macOS Sierra

macOS Sierra brings tabs to apps that allow for multiple windows. Tabs are available in such Apple apps as Mail, Maps, TextEdit, Pages, Keynote, and Numbers. And the feature works with third-party document-based apps and the Finder.

To take advantage of macOS Sierra tabbed windows, open a couple of documents in the same app. Look at the top left side of your Macs screen. Go to Window > Merge All Windows to group the open windows together as tabs. Once these docs are grouped in a single tabbed window, you can click the plus button to the right of the last tab to create new blank documents. Tabbed document groups work just the same as tabs in Safari, so you can switch documents with a click, and drag to rearrange them. Or you can hit the CMD+T shortcut on your keyboard.

Pokémon Go mania has calmed—at least for now. Last month, analysts shared that the game had shown a rapid decline in daily users, from a peak of 45 million to more than 30 million at the time, and just this week the game was ousted from the #1 spot on the App Store’s Top Grossing chart by Supercell’s newly-updated Clash Royale. Nintendo and The Pokémon Company are still making bank, but the sensation has subsided a bit.

NewerTech's NuGuard KX protective cases for the Apple iPhone 7 and 7s Plus resemble Apple Smart Cases on steroids with their one-piece design. However, they're thicker than the Apple case. Due to this, and other features, the NuGuard KX is more protective than the Smart Case, but does add a bit more bulk to your smartphone. 

The NuGuard KX case (I tested the one for the iPhone 7 Plus) boasts X-Orbing gel technology that's designed to absorb and evenly distribute kinetic energy. The outside of the case — the grip shell — has a cross hatch design that helps prevent the iPhone from slipping out of your hand. 

The NuGuard case is easy to install; it snaps into place. Once on, it offers easy access to all buttons and ports on the Apple smartphone....

Have you ever wished that you could make a standard weather app reflect your interests and lifestyle? That's the idea behind the new "Smart Forecasts" feature added today to the free Wunderground app (in-app purchases available). Powered by the over 200,000 personal weather stations that are part of the Weather Underground network (both Marty Edwards and I run personal weather stations), Smart Forecasts provide hyperlocal forecasts tailored to a number of outdoor activities.   

To begin with, users decide whether to create a custom forecast or choose from 13 different activity presents. For example, activities can be active -- like running or biking -- or more sedate, like fishing, gardening or photography. Next, users select individual preferences from a list of 13 paraments, like temperature, humidity, wind speed, precipitation probability, or UV index. Finally, the app suggests times to engage in those...

Memory Cleaner makes it easy to clean out the junk...

Every time you open a file on your hard drive, you Mac uses some memory. That makes things operate quickly, but, over time, residual files (think junk) can just lounge around in the RAM, making your Mac a bit sluggish -- sort of like I feel after a Thanksgiving dinner at Mom's.

Memory Cleaner for macOS (10.7 and higher) from ZipZap Mac is designed to rectify this. It frees wasted memory with a simple, no-frills approach.

You open Memory Cleaner. It tells you how much free memory you have. Press the Clean my Memory button, and wait about 5-30 seconds (depending on the size of your hard drive). After cleaning, Memory Cleaner tells you what your new tally of free memory is. That's all there is to it.

ZipZap Mac recommends Memory Cleaner for power users who deal with numerous or very large files, such as graphic artists, programmers, musicians, Parallels Desktop users, etc. However, with its easy of...
