DropSpace adds real Dropbox sync to Android

Posted By: admin on March 12, 2014 at 6:12 pm

dropspace

Dropbox offers a lovely client for Android, but it’s lacking true “sync” functionality. You can merely browse your Dropbox, pull files into the device, and manually upload specific files.

DropSpace is a little Android app that makes Dropbox on Android work like Dropbox – that is, you get real folder synchronization in the background.

When you run the app you’re prompted for your Dropbox credentials. After logging in to Dropbox, you get to select which device folders you’d like to sync to the cloud. It’s a straightforward mapping process: You select a folder on the device, and then specify where in Dropbox it should go.

The interface is rather clunky, at least for now. The biggest annoyance is that you can’t edit your “sync list”: if you add a folder and then wish to remove it, you must delete the entire list of folders and start over.

In terms of functionality, it works quite well. I tested it with the camera folder, and it was nice to be able to take my photos using the lean default Camera app and have them sync up to the cloud instantly.

Windows 8 Explorer to feature Ribbon UI, SkyDrive and Mesh integration?

Posted By: admin on March 12, 2014 at 4:12 pm

windows 8 explorer ribbon

Rafael Rivera and Paul Thurrott have posted a second look at some of the early changes which have surface in Windows 8 milestone 3. First there was the restyled Welcome Screen, and now it appears that Microsoft is toying with bringing the Ribbon UI to Explorer.

The Ribbon, like in Microsoft Word and Excel, is context-aware, adding tabs for specific tasks which apply to the folder you’re viewing — such as library or picture management. You can also make out two new buttons in the status bar, which allow you to change the current folder’s view style.

It’s clear from all the placeholder images and repeated elements that this is very much a work in progress, but featuring the Ribbon more prominently in Windows 8 would certainly be a logical progression for Microsoft. It’s slowly become more ubiquitous, moving beyond Office and into Wordpad, Paint, and several of the Windows Live Essentials applications.

There’s more to the screenshots than the Ribbon UI, however. Our friend Long Zheng has noted two interesting elements in the images: Web sharing and sync (image after the break). That would likely mean users will be able to quickly upload files to SkyDrive and synchronize using Live Mesh right from Explorer in Windows 8. That’s not a total surprise considering many of the earliest leaked images of Windows 8 showed Windows Live integration on the desktop.

Best fishing companion apps for iPhone: Knot Guide, My Fishing Forecast, FishTales, and more!

Posted By: admin on March 12, 2014 at 11:12 am

The best fishing apps for iPhone to help you identify different species, know what lures to use, and snag your biggest catch ever!

Whether you want to become an expert angler or learn how to better identify different types of fish, loading up a few fishing apps on your iPhone can be the difference between you telling all your friends about the catch of the day… or the one that got away. No matter what you’re fishing for, understanding fish behavior is key. From tying a good knot to knowing what lure to use, these are a ton of great apps on the App Store to help you out. But which ones are the very best?

My Fishing Forecast

My Fishing Forecast is an easy to use app that lets you know ideal times to fish in certain areas. Just use your current location or type in the location you plan on fishing at. You can then view the forecast over the next few days as well as see a graph depicting the best times of day to head out.

If you want to make sure you’re heading out to fish at just the right times, My Fishing Forecast is a must.

Fish Rules

Fish Rules is an extraordinary little app that gives you regulations and rules based on the species of fish you catch. This includes size limits, bag limits, and more. For those just starting off with fishing, be aware that local DNR branches are typically pretty strict with regulations. Fish Rules currently covers areas in Texas, the Carolinas, and Florida.

If you live in an area that Fish Rules supports, it’s a must have for anyone that wants to make sure they’re abiding by local law.

Knot Guide

Tying knots is a vital part of learning how to fish. From hooking on lures to making sure your actual hook is tied on securely, Knot Guide can help you be sure you don’t lose a fish due to a bad knot. The fishing knots section of Knot Guide currently contains over 20 knots you can use, all with awesome photos explaining each step. If you find ones you prefer over others you can favorite them for quick reference later.

If you have issues with lines coming untied or you just want to get better at securing them, Knot Guide is an invaluable tool.

FishTales

FishTales is a diary and journal that allows you to log all your fishing catches as well as everything that’s in your tackle box. I’ve found this useful for making sure I don’t get my lures and gear mixed up with someone else’s. From there you can rate your catches, photograph them, tag them at locations, and even pair them with what lures you used.

If you want a way to track all your fishing expeditions, FishTales is hands down the best app available.

Ultimate Angler

Ultimate Angler can tell you exactly where you need to position yourself and cast in order to catch certain types of fish. Just choose the fish you’re looking for and then give Ultimate Angler details such as water and wind conditions as well as the time of day. Ultimate Angler then gives you information on that fish from what kind of lures work best to what kind of bait. More important, you get casting tips that tell you whether to stay close to shore in shallow water or go deeper.

If you want to know exactly where the fish are and what kind of bait you need to use to catch them, Ultimate Angler is what you want.

Your picks?

Color vulnerable to simple GPS hack, lets you spy on anyone, anywhere

Posted By: admin on March 12, 2014 at 9:11 am

Color, the $41-million-in-funding location-oriented photo sharing startup, is susceptible to simple GPS spoofing. With nothing more than a jailbroken iPad or iPhone, you can use FakeLocation to trick Color into thinking you’re somewhere else. Within seconds you can be browsing photos that were snapped thousands of miles away. With a little digging, you can pore through photos not intended for your eyes.

Of course, such a hack isn’t illegal as such — every photo you take with Color is public. With FakeLocation you are simply circumventing Color’s very limited location-oriented security mechanism. It does undermine Color’s usefulness (and uniqueness), though — if nefarious types can sit in their bedroom or basement and eavesdrop on classy dinner parties and wild night club soirees, people might be less inclined to share personal photos with those around them.

Fortunately, both for Color and its users, this is an easy security hole to plug — at least in the short term. The app (or server-side) code simply checks to see if the user has ‘teleported’ an impossibly large distance, without any intermediate steps in between. In the long term, though, Color’s users must be aware that its social graph is completely public. Color’s users must realize that every photo they upload is visible by anyone, from any place.

After the break, just to elucidate a little on Color’s actual business model and ultimate intention, we have two amazing quotes from Bill Nguyen, Color’s founder.

Ask DLS: Cross-platform multiplayer games that work on Android and iOS

Posted By: admin on March 12, 2014 at 8:12 am

askdls

Here’s one for our knowledgeable commenters: I recently bought my girlfriend an iPad. I, on the other hand, own an Android device. And now we’re looking for games we can play using both devices.

There’s no dearth of multiplayer games either for Android or for iOS. But finding multiplayer games that can cross the platform boundary is an entirely different matter.

Jay recently posted Words with Friends which is one such game. It’s actually an ideal example, because it’s turn-based so you don’t necessarily both have to be next to your device at the same time (great for long-distance gaming).

But what other examples are there? What multiplayer games are there that let iOS users play with Android users?

VMware adds Mozy to its cloud and virtualization empire

Posted By: admin on March 12, 2014 at 4:11 am

mozy vmware

Mozy is one of the most popular cloud backup services around, with more than one million users storing around 70 petabytes of data. Its popularity apparently put it on the acquisition radar of VMware — which has now made Mozy part of its virtualization empire.

VMware’s official blog post makes it clear that the company wasn’t so much interested in Mozy as a consumer offering. Rather, it’s the inner workings of Mozy which piqued VMware’s curiosity. CTO Steve Herrod says, “Over the past 5 years, Mozy has built one of the best examples of a globally distributed, large-scale cloud offering.” He adds that the move will allow VMware to “further ramp our own cloud-related learning and accelerate new IP, scale, and capabilities” of its existing offerings.

Existing Mozy customers don’t need to worry, of course. VMware has pledged to continue running Mozy’s service without interruption.

You can now rent Adobe Photoshop for $35 per month, CS 5.5 available soon

Posted By: admin on March 12, 2014 at 3:11 am

Rejoice! No longer will you have to fork over $700 for a Photoshop CS5 license! Adobe has unveiled a new subscription scheme where you can rent the entire Creative Suite, or individual packages, by the month, or for an entire year.

Adobe Photoshop can be yours for $35 per month if you agree to rent it for 12 months, or $49 per month if you require its services for a shorter period. Dreamweaver can be had for even cheaper, at just $19 per month. The entire Master Collection is still rather expensive, though, at $125 per month.

Today, Adobe also ushered in the release of Creative Suite 5.5, and simultaneously upped its release cycle from 18 months to 24 months. This means, if you rent Photoshop for two years, it’s actually the same cost as buying it outright. There’s no rent-to-own option, though — so you wouldn’t have access to the cheaper upgrade price once Creative Suite 6 rolls around next year. Still, if you need access to Photoshop, After Effects or Premiere for a one-time project, the new rental scheme could be exactly what you’re looking for.

In other news, Adobe has announced that it will be launching three rather exciting iPad apps that work in conjunction with Photoshop: Eazel, Nav, and Color Lava. Eazel lets you five-finger paint on your iPad, and export the result into Photoshop; Nav acts as some kind of workspace, brush and menu extension, and the hopefully named Color Lava is a paint mixing palette. The apps are expected to appear in the App Store in the next 30 days.
