    I found a USB floppy disk drive in a cabinet at work. I immediately hooked it up to my work computer because of course I did.

    Also, the builtin apps aren't all stuck there; my iphone came with "apple excel" and "apple word" and "apple powerpoint" (or whatever they're actually called) -- those ones you _can_ remove, and those were taking up a lot of space.

    Question: I left garageband and imovie on there in case I ever get around to playing around with them -- does anyone know if they're any good (on a phone? I've used imovie on a mac and it's nice for very basic chopping-out-highlights, at least, but on a phone, I dunno if the UI will just get in the way too much)

    So is anyone else running the yosemite betas?


    I have 2 questions!

    Did the new number four beta cover that latest 'ix vulnerability that was discovered?

    Also should I be able to get green texts to my phone now or has that not been implemented yet?

    afaik:

    yes and no

    Googling around led me to this :

    http://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/how-to-send-text-messages-make-phone-calls-with-mac-os-x-yosemite/

    Posted mostly for my self for when I come home.

    My settings are already as such yet I've not received a text on my computer

    >_>
    Really?

    Maybe texts aren't working but I set it up and phone calls definitely worked for me.

    I don't use it regularly or anything but anytime I've had to back up stuff for customers at work Kies has worked like a charm.

    agreed!

    I did it using Automatic and IFTT

    There are actual practical uses for it, like I have it log my driving to a google spreadsheet for tracking milage performance, and could theoretically used it now for tracking milage when visiting clients!

    You could also just use the trip computer in your car.

    that would require keeping track

    this all happens automatically

    Pressing the button on the steering wheel/column stalk is too much effort?

    yes

    also remembering to do so every time it occurs to me to track it

    vs a thing that does it with zero user interaction beyond "turnon ignition"

    Also, yes there are a handful of apps that are baked into iOS

    just make a folder called  and drop them all in there and forget about them the end

    I was recently talking about pre-loaded apps with my dad and mentioned how bad Verizon is about loading up their Android phones with crapware when he complained about Apple doing the same thing. I was really confused until he started listing off the default apps included on every iPhone.

    He ... doesn't like technology. The only reason he stopped using his old Motorola StarTac phone is because it didn't have GPS and Verizon forced him to upgrade.

    You just made me realize I could rename folders on my iPhone with the emoticon keyboard. I have a folder now that is named with just a tiny picture of a cartoon ghost!

    Okay I kinda wish it took the place of chat heads with Facebook Messenger because I like being able to open Messenger over the top of other apps.

    I saw also hoping it would consolidate my conversations rather than just notifying me. My phone already does that.

    The yeti head is still cute though.

    I'll bug Derek to install it and try it this weekend

    ask yourself a question: why do you care?

    It's highly likely that I am in fact a dick. I will henceforth endeavour to not be a dick.

    Yeah, same. It's also annoying with notification mirroring apps like Pushbullet because it doubles up - one each app. :\

    I think it's really useful if you have a bunch of different messaging apps so you only have to open one app to see everything at once.

    Just installed it. First thing that is weird is that you can't move the little tab that stays on your screen. Beta though, that would be pretty easy to add in later I would think. Once I get some messages I'll let you know what that's like.

    I can move the tab all over the place. Just have to stick it to the left or right side.

    Oh there we go. I was trying to move it while it was hidden like the multi-window tab on my S4. Yeah it moves easily similar to Facebook Messenger chat heads.

    e: I think I'd like this if it replied directly from the Snowball app. Seems like this is just a disjointed notification center that only shows messages.

    Oh man, the Play Store 5.0 APK leaked. The little animation when you pull out the nav menu is amazing.

  • SirToastySirToasty Registered User regular
    edited October 2014
    Had my friend send me several messages in a row through Facebook Messenger and SMS. Snowball didn't catch the facebook messages for some reason but it got both of the texts. This is odd since he had just sent me message through facebook that did show up.

    e: Can't get the new Play Store apk to install. First download just says "Can't open file". The next one gets to the permissions page but the Install button does nothing. I've got the right stuff checked in my settings I'm pretty sure. I haven't had trouble opening .apk files from other place before.

    I used the first link here and it installed fine on my N5.

  • SirToastySirToasty Registered User regular
    Interesting, the Snowball tab was blocking me from pressing the Install button despite it being near the top of the screen. Getting rid of the tab allowed me to press the button. So there's an odd bug with Snowball for ya.
