WELCOME TO IFIVE FOR THE IPHONE, EPISODE 93, OR AS I LIKE TO CALL IT, 93 TO INFINITY….. THIS IS THE SHOW THAT COVERS THE LATEST IPHONE NEWS, APPS, TIPS & TRICKS. I'M SARAH LANE, YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD GUIDE TO ALL THINGS IOS. LET’S BEGIN WITH SOME PHOTOS OF THIS WEEKEND’S BIG KANYE AND KARDASHIAN WEDDING…. I MEAN HOW ABOUT THAT DRESS? AM I RIGHT? JUST KIDDING.

#1 - WWDC - https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2014/

WELL, WE’RE LESS THAN A WEEK OUT FROM WWDC, OR THE WORLDWIDE DEVELOPER’S CONFERENCE APPLE THROWS EVERY YEAR. LOTS OF RUMORS GOING INTO THE SHOW ABOUT WHAT IOS 8 WILL LOOK LIKE, RUMORS ABOUT HEALTHBOOK AND APPS THAT MAY TAP INTO NOT JUST FITNESS BUT YOUR MEDICAL VITALS ARE PRETTY INTRIGUING - THE IWATCH RUMORS ALSO WON’T GO AWAY, AND JUST THIS WEEK THE FINANCIAL TIMES REPORTED that Apple is planning a platform that would turn its iOS devices, including the iPhone, to control their smart home devices. That’s stuff like controlling lights, security systems and connected appliances. Now, if this report is to be believed, this platform would be built into the iPhone, centralizing control rather than spreading it over multiple third-party apps. and it’ll be shown off at WWDC next week.… WE’LL ALSO PROBABLY GET A PEEK AT THE NEXT VERSION OF OS X MAVERICKS, WHICH SHOILD INTEGRATE WITH IOS BETTER THAN IT DOES NOW - IMESSAGE, ANYONE? ANYONE? BUT ONE THING WE DO KNOW FOR SURE IS THAT APPLE WILL LIVE STREAM THE VIDEO FROM THE KEYNOTE ON MONDAY, JUNE 2ND, AT 10 AM. ACTUALLY WORKS GREAT FOR ME BECAUSE WE’LL BE COVERING THE EVENT LIVE HERE ON TWIT, OF COURSE, AND I HOPE YOU’RE ABLE TO JOIN US FOR THAT. AGAIN, 10 AM PACIFIC, ON MONDAY, JUNE 2ND. IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!

#2 - TUNEIN RADIO - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tunein-radio-pro/id319295332?mt=8

I WAS ALL SET TO COVER TUNEIN RADIO A COUPLE WEEKS AGO AND EVEN THOUGH IT GOT POSTPONED FOR A BIT, I HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN! TUNEIN RADIO GOT A BIG DESIGN UPDATE AND I THINK IT’S JUST PEACHY AND DESERVES A LOOK, IF YOU LIKE RADIO. YOU LIKE RADIO, RIGHT? TERRESTRIAL RADIO, SATELLITE RADIO, AUDIO PODCAST RADIO, TUNEIN HANDLES IT ALL. YOU CAN FOLLOW YOUR FAVORITE SPORTS STATIONS, MUSIC, TALK RADIO, PRETTY MUCH EVERY GENRE YOU CAN THINK OF, TUNEIN HAS SOMETHING - THE COMPANY CLAIMS 100,000 TRADITIONAL RADIO STATIONS AND OVER 4 MILLION PODCASTS, SO THAT’S A PRETTY HEALTHY CATALOG. AND IF YOU’RE ALREADY FAMILIAR WITH TUNEIN RADIO, A FEW THINGS HAVE BEEN UPDATED. FIRST, YOUR “FAVORITES” LIST IS NOW JUST THE STATIONS YOU FOLLOW, WHICH I THINK MAKES MORE SENSE - IF YOU’RE FOLLOWING IT, YOU WANT TO HEAR IT. YOU CAN ALSO SEE HOW MUCH TIME IS LEFT ON A SHOW YOU’RE LISTENING TO, HELPFUL IF YOU KNOW YOU’VE ONLY GOT 30 MINUTES OR SOME OTHER LIMITED TIME. AND CAR MODE IS EASY TO TOGGLE ON AND OFF THROUGH THE BROWSE TAB. THE IDEA IS, YOU’RE REALLY NOT SUPPOSED TO BE LOOKING AT YOUR IPHONE IN THE CAR, BUT IF YOU MUST VERY QUICKLY PRESS PLAY OR SEARCH OR SOMETHING, YOU SHOULD HAVE A REALLY SIMPLE INTERFACE WITH BIG LETTERS THAT WON’T DISTRACT YOU MUCH.

WE’VE TALKED A LOT ABOUT AUDIO ON THE SHOW RECENTLY - TALKED ABOUT THE PODCASTS APP LAST WEEK, PLUS DOWNCAST - THE THING THOUGH, IS THAT TUNEIN RADIO IS THAT ALL-ENCOMPASSING APP THAT IS BOTH GOOD FOR PODCASTS AND FOR RADIO. KCRW, A REALLY AWESOME STATION DOWN IN LOS ANGELES, FOR EXAMPLE, THAT’S HERE, AS WELL AS THE ENTIRE TWIT NETWORK! I WILL SAY I HAVE A TINY GRIPE WITH IFIVE NOT HAVING MORE SUBSCRIBERS - 209? MAYBE IT’S JUST BECAUSE YOU ALL PREFER TO WATCH ME? I DON’T KNOW.

#3 - DUH TIP: CATEGORIZE APPS

WE GOT AN EMAIL FROM TOM, WHO’S GOT AN ORGANIZATIONAL QUESTION. HE WRITES:

Do you know of an app that can categorize apps you've downloaded previously? I currently download up to 2 different apps a day and my phone keeps filling up. It would be great to be able to remember what I've downloaded as I can forget certain names for apps. I know I can access it in the purchased section but this is just a date order list which doesn't help me. 

WELL TOM, THERE ARE A FEW THINGS YOU CAN DO TO ARRANGE YOUR APPS, BUT I’M NOT SURE ANY OF THE SOLUTIONS ARE REALY WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR. ASSUMING YOU DONT JUST WANT YOUR MOST RECENT APPS TO SHOW UP ON YOUR LAST PAGE, WHICH IS WHAT THEY DO BY DEFAULT, YOU CAN CHOOSE TO HAVE THEM REARRANGED ALPHABETICALLY BY GOING INTO YOUR SETTINGS, GENERAL, RESET, AND THEN CHOOSING “RESENT HOME SCREEN LAYOUT.” BUT I DON’T RECOMMEND THIS UNLESS YOU DON’T USE FOLDERS, BECAUSE YOUR WHOLE STRUCTURE WILL BE WIPED OUT. I TRIED IT FOR FUN ONE DAY AND IMMEDIATELY REGRETTED IT, TOOK ME FOREVER TO UNDO THAT MESS. YOU CAN ALSO CHOOSE TO REARRANGE THE ORDER OF HOW YOUR APPS SHOW UP IN YOUR NOTIFICATION CENTER BY GOING INTO YOUR NOTIFICATION SETTINGS AND DRAGGING AND DROPPING APPS HOWEVER YOU WANT THEM IN THE DROPDOWN LIST, BUT THAT REQUIRES AT LEAST KNOWING WHICH APP IS WHICH, AND THAT’S JUST FOR NOTIFICATIONS WHICH YOU MIGHT NOT EVEN WANT TURNED ON. IF I WERE YOU, I’D GO FOLDER CRAZY. FOR EXAMPLE, I HAVE A METRIC TON OF PHOTOGRAPHY APPS, AND WHEN I DOWNLOAD A NEW ONE, I IMMEDIATELY THROW IT IN MY PHOTOGRAPHY FOLDER. THAT WAY, EVEN IF I FORGET THAT THE NAME OF THE APP IS AFTERLIGHT, OR WATERLOGUE, I KNOW IT’S IN MY PHOTOGRAPHY FOLDER. HELPS A LOT. IF ANYONE OUT THERE HAS OTHER TIPS FOR TOM, SEND THEM TO IFIVE@TWIT.TV.

#4 - VOICEMAIL - REMOVING DELETED APPS
https://www.google.com/voice/b/4#message/TJTMZXISUWKTXQHYXMQLVZWMYNUNINY...
to listen: ifiveshow@gmail.com
pass: samsungrules2012

LET’S LISTEN TO A VOICEMAIL WE GOT FROM AN UNNAMED FELLOW WHO’S GOT ISSUES WITH DELETED APPS.

[[VM]]

HMM, WELL, WHEN YOU DELETE AN APP FROM YOUR IPHONE, IT’S DELETED. YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING ELSE AND IF YOU WANT IT BACK, YOU HAVE TO REINSTALL IT. NOW, THE PROBLEM YOU MIGHT BE HAVING IS IF YOU’RE REGUARLY BACKING UP YOUR APPS TO ITUNES ON YOUR COMPUTER, AND THEN SYNCING, AND SOMEHOW THOSE APPS ARE BEING PUT BACK ONTO YOUR PHONE. BUT THAT SHOULDN’T HAPPEN WITHOUT ITUNES ASKING YOU IF YOU WANT TO DO THAT. NOW, YOU COULD ALSO BE ASKING ABOUT ICLOUD, BECAUSE IF YOU DELETE AN APP FROM YOUR IPHONE AND IT’S STILL ON ANOTHER IDEVICE USING YOUR SAME ICLOUD ACCOUNT OR YOU’RE PAID FOR IT, ICLOUD IS HELPFUL ENOUGH TO LET YOU REINTALL IT QUICKLY WITHOUT SIGNING IN AGAIN OR PAYING AGAIN. BUT THAT’S STILL NOT GONNA TAKE UP ANY SPACE LOCALLY. THE LAST THING YOU MIGHT BE ASKING ABOUT IS RESIDUAL DOCUMENTS AND DATA THAT MIGHT BE LEFT ON YOUR IPHONE AFTER DELETING AN APP, WHICH REALLY SHOULDN’T BE AN ISSUE AT ALL. BUT I DON’T THINK THAT’S WHAT YOU’RE ASKING. IF ANYONE HAS A SCENARIO I MIGHT HAVE MISSED HERE, PLEASE DO WEIGH IN AT IFIVE@TWIT.TV.

#5 - BROWSER DUH TIP - ACCESS HISTORY

FINALLY, A HANDY LITTLE REMINDER COMES IN FROM MATT, WHO WRITES:

If you hold down the back button in Safari, it brings up the history. I don't know if you covered this before, but I discovered it by accident.

WELL MATT TO BE HONEST WE PROBABLY HAVE COVERED THIS TIP, BUT NOT IN A WHILE, SO IT BEARS REPEATING. VERY VERY HANDY TRICK FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO PREFER NOT TO HAVE A BUNCH OF TABS OPEN, OR FORGET WHERE YOU WERE SEVERAL WEBPAGES AGO. JUST HOLD DOWN THE BACK BUTTON, AND NAVIGATE BACK IN TIME FROM THERE. WORKS FOR THE FORWARD BUTTON, TOO. AND I SHOULD POINT OUT THAT THIS TIP WORKS IN CHROME, TOO.. THAT’S MY DEFAULT BROWSER IN IOS, AND IF IT’S YOURS TOO, YOU DON’T HAVE TO FEEL LEFT OUT.

-----------------------------------------
