Scanner Pro 6 adds ability to scan documents in your phot...

Readdle has just updated Scanner Pro to version 6, making it even easier to use your iPhone or iPad to scan documents. Improved edge-detection means that it continues to automatically align documents within the camera frame, and a Scan Radar feature intelligently analyzes your photo library to find pictures of documents.

This feature lets Scanner Pro to automatically find photos that look like document in your Photo Library. This means that you no longer have to launch the app to scan something – simply open your camera app from a lock screen and take pictures of things you want to scan. Once you launch Scanner Pro, it will automatically notify you about the new scans that it found.

The developers say they analyzed more than half a million documents to build the functionality …

A batch scanning mode means you can just pass documents in front of your camera and it will automatically scan each in turn with no need to press a button, making it easier to hold the phone in one hand while positioning documents with the other.

The app normally costs $5.99, but is currently available for $2.99 “for a limited time.”

The man in charge of Apple’s Secret Design Studio leaves...

Today, 02:54 AM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
<p><a href="https://9to5mac.file...09-11.png"><imgtitle="The man in charge of Apple's Secret Design Studio leaves as Ive starts new role" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-387467" src="https://9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/screenshot-2015-07-02-19-09-11.png?w=704&h=497" alt="Screenshot 2015-07-02 19.09.11" width="704" height="497" /></a></p>
<p>Jony Ive’s <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2.../a> aide HarperAlexander, who managed Apple’s secretive design studio, appears to have left his role at Apple. In his own words, Alexander was previously in charge of Ive’s design studio, calendar, security, meetings, expenses, and personal projects, since 2009.</p>
<p>Referenced in multiple recent profiles as Ive’s top assistant, Harper updated his LinkedIn on July 1st, Ive’s first day in his new “Chief Design Officer,” to indicate that he no longer runs Ive’s design studio or serves as executive assistant to Apple’s CDO. On July 1st, this is what became of Harper’s biography:</p>
<p><span id="more-387462"></span><div class="inlinead"><a href="http://rss.buysellad...8&c=1161536050"target="_blank"><img src="http://rss.buysellads.com/img.php?z=1288305&k=0d0633b70e3c2bda246a715efcc79f88&a=1435897948&c=1161536050" border="0" alt="" /></a></div></p>
<p><a href="https://9to5mac.file...52-46.png"><imgtitle="The man in charge of Apple's Secret Design Studio leaves as Ive starts new role" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-387464" src="https://9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/screenshot-2015-07-01-10-52-46.png?w=704&h=307" alt="Screenshot 2015-07-01 10.52.46" width="704" height="307" /></a></p>
<p>He clearly states he “was” Ive’s assistant and office manager, and that he finished this job in July 2015. After discovering this change on Alexander’ LinkedIn, we contacted him for comment, and received no reply. A day later, his only public-facing website was deleted and his LinkedIn biography was mostly reverted to its state prior to July 1st:</p>
<p><a href="https://9to5mac.file...0-061.png"><imgtitle="The man in charge of Apple's Secret Design Studio leaves as Ive starts new role" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-387466" src="https://9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/screenshot-2015-07-02-16-10-061.png?w=704&h=230" alt="Screenshot 2015-07-02 16.10.06" width="704" height="230" /></a></p>
<p>It is possible that Alexander has not left Apple and has instead taken on a new role, but his brief biography change on the LinkedIn job site does seem to strongly indicate that he no longer is Ive’s assistant nor in charge of Apple’s design studio. While Apple has positioned Ive’s move to “Chief Design Officer” as a promotion, the possibility that his Cupertino-based assistant would depart on the first official day of the new role is intriguing.</p>
<p>Alexander no longer being Ive’s assistant would indicate that Ive no longer has any direct reports. Contrary to what was implied in <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2...n-officer/">TheTelegraph’s Memorial Day 2015 profile</a> of Ive and his new role and Apple CEO Tim Cook’s own email to employees, the new vice presidents of Human Interface and Industrial Design, Alan Dye and Richard Howarth, <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2015/07/01/jony-ive-deisgn-officer/">actually report to Cook</a> rather than Ive.</p>
<p><a href="https://9to5mac.file...7257b.jpg"><imgtitle="The man in charge of Apple's Secret Design Studio leaves as Ive starts new role" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-387463" src="https://9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/65846746_fea006266_3317257b.jpg?w=704" alt="" /></a></p>
<p>This means that Ive is shedding the entirety of his managerial duties with this new role, and the possibility of his assistant leaving raises the question of how involved Ive could be at Apple to no longer need a design studio manager or lead assistant. Of course, it is possible that Apple could simply have hired a replacement for Alexander, but the July 1st timing seems to indicate a planned departure.</p>
<p>Following the announcement of Ive’s new role, we noted <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2...ng-apple/">thatthe change raises several interesting questions</a> that could point to Ive reducing his direct product involvement at Apple beyond what Apple has portrayed. Ive’s top assistant and office manager leaving, combined with Dye and Howarth actually reporting to Cook, adds fuel to the theory that Ive’s responsibilities are shrinking rather than growing.</p><br />Filed under: <a href='http://9to5mac.com/category/aapl-company/'>AAPL Company</a> Tagged: <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/apple-inc/'>Apple Inc</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/chief-design-officer/'>chief design officer</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/harper-alexander/'>Harper Alexander</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/industrial-design/'>Industrial design</a>, <a href='http://9to5mac.com/tag/jonathan-ive/'>Jonathan Ive</a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gocomments/9to5mac.wordpress.com/387462/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/comments/9to5mac.wordpress.com/387462/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/godelicious/9to5mac.wordpress.com/387462/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/delicious/9to5mac.wordpress.com/387462/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gofacebook/9to5mac.wordpress.com/387462/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/facebook/9to5mac.wordpress.com/387462/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gotwitter/9to5mac.wordpress.com/387462/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/twitter/9to5mac.wordpress.com/387462/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/gostumble/9to5mac.wordpress.com/387462/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/stumble/9to5mac.wordpress.com/387462/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/godigg/9to5mac.wordpress.com/387462/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/digg/9to5mac.wordpress.com/387462/" /></a> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/goreddit/9to5mac.wordpress.com/387462/"><img alt="" border="0" src="http://feeds.wordpress.com/1.0/reddit/9to5mac.wordpress.com/387462/" /></a> <img alt="" border="0" src="http://pixel.wp.com/b.gif?host=9to5mac.com&blog=22754319&post=387462&subd=9to5mac&ref=&feed=1" width="1" height="1" /><p>Visit <a href="http://9to5mac.com">9to5Mac</a> to find more special coverage of <a href="http://9to5mac.com/category/aapl-company/">AAPL Company</a>, <a href="http://9to5mac.com/tag/apple-inc/">Apple Inc</a>, and <a href="http://9to5mac.com/tag/jonathan-ive/">Jonathan Ive</a>.</p><p>What do you think? <strong><a href="http://9to5mac.com/2015/07/02/the-man-in-charge-of-apples-secret-design-studio-leaves-as-ive-starts-new-role/#comments">Discuss "The man in charge of Apple’s Secret Design Studio leaves as Ive starts new&nbsp;role" with our community.</a></strong></p>

Music downloads down 10%, streaming up 100%, prior to lau...

Today, 10:53 AM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
<p><a href="https://9to5mac.file...amers.png"><imgtitle="Music downloads down 10%, streaming up 100%, prior to launch of Apple Music" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-387481" src="https://9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/music-streamers.png?w=704&h=454" alt="music-streamers" width="704" height="454" /></a></p>
<p>The rationale behind Apple’s move into streaming music can be neatly summarised in two stats from the latest Nielsen data on American music sales: music downloads fell by 10% in the first half of the year to 531M, while streaming almost doubled to 135B. The streaming figure includes <a href="http://9to5mac.com/tag/itunes-radio/"target="_blank">iTunes Radio</a> but not, of course, Apple Music.</p>

Apple Music Tidbits: Nicknames, Playlist Management, and...

Yesterday, 09:08 PM

Posted By x-bot in iDevice News
Apple's new subscription-based music service launched earlier this week, and even if you've taken advantage of Apple's free three-month trial to see if it is worth your dime and time, there are a few things you may not have discovered yet about its features. <br/> <br/> While our <a href="http://www.macrumors...music/">GettingStarted guide</a> gives an overview of how to get up and running, this article gives more details on some of the things you can do with Apple Music and how to make it work for you. If you've noticed any other features we haven't listed yet, feel free to let us know in the forums. <br/> <br/> <h2>Add a Nickname to Your Profile</h2> <br/> <img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-456263" src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/07/Apple-Music-Nickname.jpg" alt="Apple Music Nickname" width="600" height="297" />You could stick with your full Apple ID name, or change it to something that fits you better. Apple lets you add a nickname to your ID, which will be displayed on playlists and comments. Nicknames are unique, so the earlier you grab one, the better. <br/> <br/> <strong>On iOS:</strong> <br/> <ol> <br/> <li>Open the Music app and tap on any of the main section icons in the bottom toolbar if you're not already on a main page.</li> <br/> <li>Tap the silhouette profile icon in the upper left corner of the main screen.</li> <br/> <li>Tap your name. Then tap the Edit button to add a nickname.</li> <br/> </ol><strong>In iTunes:</strong> <br/> <ol> <br/> <li>Click on the arrow next to your name, and then click on your Apple ID.</li> <br/> <li>Enter a nickname in the fill-in form.</li> <br/> </ol><h2>Start a Station Based on a Song or Album</h2> <br/> <img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-456266" src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/07/Start-a-Station-Apple-Music-800x706.jpg" alt="Start a Station Apple Music" width="800" height="706" /> <br/> You can start a new station based on a song or album in either your music library or Apple Music. Tap the three dots next to the song or album to call up additional options. Then, tap "Start Station" on iOS or "New station from artist or song" on OS X to begin listening to tracks. <br/> <!--more--> <br/> <h2>Create a Playlist</h2> <br/> You can create a playlist and add songs to it right from within the Music app or in iTunes. <br/> <br/> <strong>On iOS:</strong> <br/> <ol> <br/> <li>Open the Music App and tap on the My Music section.</li> <br/> <li>Select the Playlist section at the top of the screen.</li> <br/> <li>Tap "New" under the All Playlists and enter a name and description for the playlist.</li> <br/> <li>Tap "Add Songs" and add tracks from your music library or Apple Music.</li> <br/> <li>You can also add songs to a playlist at any time from your library or Apple Music by tapping the three dots next to the song or album. When the list of options appears, tap "Add to Playlist."</li> <br/> </ol><strong>In iTunes:</strong> <br/> <ol> <br/> <li>In iTunes, select the Playlists tab and click on the add (+) icon in the bottom left corner of the screen. Or, click "File" in your computer's tool bar and hover over "New." Then, select "New Playlist."</li> <br/> <li>Name the playlist. Then click "Edit Playlist.</li> <br/> <li>Add songs from your music library.</li> <br/> <li>To add a song from Apple Music, tap the three dots next to a song or album to call up the options. Select "Add To," and then select the playlist you wish to add the music to.</li> <br/> </ol><h2>Change Library and Playlist View Options</h2> <br/> On iOS, you can adjust the way you see music in your library or playlists to show such categories as artists, albums, songs, and Apple Music playlists, and you can choose to only show music available offline (in other words, only music downloaded to your device). Under the Playlist or Library tab in the My Music section of your Music app, tap the category (like Albums, Songs, or All Playlists) to switch to a different view. <br/> <br/> <strong>Tip:</strong> If you have the "Music Available Offline" feature turned on, you will not see songs or albums that you add to My Music on iOS. Follow the instructions above and toggle the Music Available Offline switch to the off position. <br/> <br/> <h2>Add to My Music</h2> <br/> <img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-456264" src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/07/My-Music-Apple-Music-800x706.jpg" alt="My Music Apple Music" width="800" height="706" /> <br/> You can add any song or album to your iTunes library from Apple Music. When added, iTunes will play these songs as part of random shuffling. Find a song or album and select the three dots next to it. Then, select "Add to My Music." On iOS, you can also tap the add (+) icon next to an album to add it with one tap. Remember, if you have the "Music Available Offline" feature on, you will not see new music added unless you make it available offline. <br/> <br/> <h2>Make Music Available Offline</h2> <br/> On of the best things about Apple Music on iOS is the ability to listen to tracks, even when you are not connected to the Internet. To download music to your device, select the song or album and tap the three dots next to it to call up the options. Then, select "Make Available Offline." <br/> <br/> <h2>Get More Recommendations Based on Likes (or Hearts)</h2> <br/> <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2015/07/02/apple-music-liking-system-customization/">Apple Music will learn your tastes</a> and have more recommendations for you the more you "like" songs. Tap the heart next to the song in the Now Playing view to show that you like it. As Apple Music learns your preferences, new songs and playlists will be added to the "For You" section. <br/> <br/> <h2>"Replay" Beats 1 Shows</h2> <br/> <img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-456265" src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/07/Replay-Beats-1-Apple-Music-800x706.jpg" alt="Replay Beats 1 Apple Music" width="800" height="706" /> <br/> Did you miss out on a Beats 1 show that you were looking forward to? While you can't replay the show as it aired with DJ commentary, you can access playlists of tracks from featured shows on demand on iOS. <br/> <ol> <br/> <li>Open the Music app and select the Radio section.</li> <br/> <li>Tap the Beats 1 banner (do not tap "Listen Now").</li> <br/> <li>Select a featured show. Then, select the show date you wish to listen to. You can even listen to specific tracks instead of the entire playlist from the show. Tap on a show to see the playlist.</li> <br/> </ol>In iTunes on the desktop, the best way to find a Beats 1 playlist is to search for the DJ you wish to hear and select the playlist you missed from his or her profile page. <br/> <br/> <h2>Turn Off Apple Music</h2> <br/> <img class="aligncenter wp-image-456267" src="http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2015/07/Turn-off-iCloud-and-Apple-Music-800x706.jpg" alt="Turn off iCloud and Apple Music" width="800" height="706" /> <br/> If you gave Apple Music a try and decided that it is just not for you, you can remove the service from the Music app and go back to the old way of listening to music. <br/> <ol> <br/> <li>Open the Settings app on iOS and select Music from the menu.</li> <br/> <li>Toggle the "Show Apple Music" switch to the off position. This can easily be switched on or off without causing any storage or download issues. Songs you've downloaded for offline listening will still be in your music library.</li> <br/> </ol><h2>Turn Off iCloud Music Library</h2> <br/> The iTunes Match functionality users may already be familiar with has been converted to iCloud Music Library in Apple Music. If you have the feature turned on, it will allow you to store your music in iCloud so you can access it from any device with the feature enabled. Users should be aware that tracks downloaded using iCloud Music Library <a href="http://www.mcelhearn.com/the-real-difference-between-itunes-match-and-icloud-music-library-drm/">contain digital rights management (DRM)</a>, so users should make sure they have backups of their owned music uploaded to iCloud Music Library. If you wish to disable the feature, you can turn off your iCloud Music Library on any device. <br/> <br/> <strong>On iOS:</strong> <br/> <ol> <br/> <li>Open the Settings app on iOS and select Music from the menu.</li> <br/> <li>Toggle the "iCloud Music Library" switch to the off position. If you disable iCloud Music library, it will remove all Apple Music songs from your device.</li> <br/> </ol><strong>In iTunes:</strong> <br/> <ol> <br/> <li>Open iTunes, and then select iTunes -> Preferences from the main menu bar.</li> <br/> <li>Under the General tab, uncheck the "iCloud Music Library" box. If you disable iCloud Music library, it will remove all Apple Music songs from your computer.</li> <br/> </ol><h2>Replace 'Connect' Tab with 'Playlist' Tab</h2> <br/> If you are not a big fan of social networking, you may not care for the Connect feature in Apple Music. Luckily, you can replace it with a Playlists tab instead. <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2015/07/01/replace-connect-with-playlists-apple-music/">Check out our how-to guide</a> to find out how. <br/> <br/> <h2>Turn Off Auto Renew</h2> <br/> So, you've tried Apple Music and have decided it's not worth the $10 per-month price tag.
