    Gabe Weatherhead at Macdrifter: If I’m already following a route and I’m getting low on gas or caffeine, I swipe up from the bottom to reveal some new options. There are quick search options for gas and food. I’m trying to reduce my Google footprint. As a result, I find myself using Apple Maps more […]∞ Permalink […]

    Jeff Benjamin writing for 9to5Mac: After a screenshot is taken, you’ll notice that it doesn’t instantly appear on your Desktop as it did with previous versions of macOS. Instead, macOS Mojave has adopted an iOS-like system that places a floating thumbnail of the screenshot in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, allowing users to […]∞ Permalink […]

    Federico Viticci writing for MacStories: When I published my iPhone XS Frames shortcut two weeks ago, I noted that my goal was to eventually support screenshots and device templates from other Apple devices, starting with the Apple Watch and MacBook Pro.

    With the release of iOS 12, the Shortcuts app was released into the wild.

    NightOwl is a menu bar app to help you quickly toggle Mojave’s dark mode on and off. But I f your menu bar is already too cluttered, or if you prefer keeping your hands on the keyboard, you can set up your own tool to accomplish this instead. To do so, you need a program […]

    Marius Masalar, at his blog: “Hey Siri, Add a new Writing task” This example creates a new task in Things within my ‘Writing’ area, assigned to Today, and presents me with a pre-filled quick-entry window where I can add the title and hit save.

  • macOS Mojave: the Automation Angle →
    by Evan Kline on September 24, 2018 at 5:06 pm

    John Voorhees writing for MacStories: My hope with Quick Actions is that they are the first step in a ground-up re-imagining of automation on the Mac where Quick Actions become the equivalent of shortcuts on iOS and Automator is replaced by something closer to the Shortcuts app on iOS. Automator has served Mac users well […]∞ Permalink […]

    iOS 12 added some great functionality to Do Not Disturb, including the ability to set Do Not Disturb for an hour, until the evening, or until you leave your current location. Since my phone is silent and I get all notifications through taps from my Apple Watch, I can ignore most distractions pretty easily. As […]

    Nick Statt, writing for The Verge: Now, when you uncheck the settings box reading “Show the best tweets first,” Twitter will completely revert your timeline to a non-algorithmic, reverse-chronological order, which is how Twitter was originally designed and operated for years until the company introduced a default algorithmic model in early 2016. The official Twitter […]∞ Permalink […]

    by Evan Kline on September 17, 2018 at 11:46 pm

    Matt Birchler of Birchtree: Control Center can be rearranged. This is a minor change, but one that you will probably use once and then never again. At the bottom of Control Center is an “Edit” button that allows you to shift these buttons around however you’d like. Newly released watchOS 5 is full of little […]∞ Permalink […]
