Apple devices are appealing for many reasons, and chief among them is their exacting design. The in-hand feel of an iPhone is as key to owning one as any other hardware or software features. So why would you want to hide that subtlety inside a bulky case?
One of iOS 12’s most powerful features — a newfound compatibility with password management apps — kind of flew under the radar. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a big deal. In fact, this is a huge step forward for password managers like Dashlane, because it makes them far easier to use on iPhones and iPads.
With the recent Facebook hack compromising the personal data of 50 million users, there’s never been a better time to change all your passwords. And if you’re going to use strong, unique and extremely hard-to-remember passwords for every site you visit or web service you use, you’re going to need industrial-strength password management.
Here at Cult of Mac, we’re big advocates of using a virtual private network to stay safe and anonymous online. So when Dashlane announced it would build a VPN into its already useful password manager, we were thrilled.
Anyone who does their work on a computer likely uses a team management platform like Slack, Hipchat, Asana or Trello. It’s a busy space, with lots of competition, so Israeli startup monday.com is leveraging colorful, adaptive, intuitive design to stand out from the crowd.
Last year, iTunes 12.7 launched as a version “focused” on music, TV shows, podcasts and audiobooks. The redesign was aimed at cutting bloat, so functions like the App Store, home screen arrangement, and ringtone editing got nixed. Not everyone was happy about that.
Apple has launched another new raft of iPhones and a shiny new mobile operating system, iOS 12. That means some cool new features, but also the pain of backing up and syncing on iTunes. That means the same old “all or nothing” approach, pressing “sync” and hoping it works. Apple is great in many ways, but giving us control over our mobile data isn’t one of them.
