A few days ago I found a great text editor for the iPad and iPhone.
I have been using Droptext and Elements. But they don’t work nearly as great as Nebulous.
Nebulous supports access to your Dropbox and will store and sync offline copies of the files that you are working on.
Nebulous Notes (for Dropbox) on iTunes
Goodreader keeps getting more awesome with every update!
GoodReader for iOS update now provides Auto Sync.
This is cool!
TestFlight is a new service that aims to fix a lot of the problems with iPhone app testing. If you’ve ever developed an iPhone app or served as a tester for an unreleased one, you know how much of a pain it is: collecting the UDIDs for the testers’ phones, distributing .ipa files, and then distributing new .ipa files every time something changes … yuck! TestFlight streamlines the process, keeping track of all your testers and pushing app updates over the air.
If you want to demo TestFlight, you can (no joke) drag your .ipa to a box on testflghtapp.com, enter some email addresses, and hit submit. Then, just watch the counter tick up as your testers install the app. That’s why they call it “magical.” TestFlight is free for developers, and enterprise accounts are available if you email the devs.
TestFlight simplifies iPhone app testing with over-the-air distribution.
I have been using Textexpander on my mac for over 2 years. Textexpander enables you to write custom snippets of text that gets inserted every time you type the abbreviation that’s linked to the snippet. Sounds complicated? It’s not..
Save time and effort with TextExpander! Whether it’s a simple email signature or several paragraphs of a standard response, you’ll love how easy it is to use TextExpander to avoid typing the same thing over and over.
Personally I’ve been using Textexpander for small stuff. For example every time i write the abbreviation ddate it gets substituted with todays date, formatted just the way I like it. The same thing for my signature when i write ssign. My use is somewhat trivial, but you can create quite cool custom snippets that for example will type a custom response to an email.
I have recently started using Textexpander on my iPhone and iPad. Works great.
I’m seriously thinking of buying a SSD drive and is using Disk Inventory X and Disc Wave to clean up the 340 GB drive in my MacBook Pro.
During the cleanup i found the following somewhat disturbing folder. (~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup)
It turned out that almost every iPhone backup that iTunes had done was still stored on my MacBook. After some looking around i followed these steps to fix it:
How to remove a backup
Below are steps to delete the backups, note that the device does not have to be connected. Assumes that you use iTunes 7 or later.
- Open iTunes Preferences:
- Go to Edit > Preferences (Mac users go to iTunes > Preferences).
- Hit Devices.
- Locate the backup to be deleted. Select it and hit Delete Backup.
- Confirm deletion and hit OK.
