App of the Week: OmniGraffle

 

A refresh of the long-time Mac drawing app from the Omni Group now pulls in images and text from other apps.

By Mike Wuerthele and William Gallagher of Apple Insider

Like its fellow Omni Group apps OmniFocus and OmniPlan, the drawing and charting software OmniGraffle 3.2 has been updated for iOS 11. All three now take advantage of the new operating system’s drag and drop features to change and improve how you work with the apps.

If you’re an AppleInsider reader, you’re already aware that The Omni Group’s software dates back to the dawn of the PowerPC era. More than 20 years later, the company is still updating its suite of software, with OmniGraffle getting a new iOS version for iOS 11.

It’s a drawing application but not for art or sketching. Rather, it’s for making illustrations specifically to explain things. So OmniGraffle is often used for organization charts or for floor plans. You can get very elaborate and detailed, so much so that app designers can mock up in OmniGraffle how their software will look.

OmniGraffle is also meant for just explaining things quickly so it has tools and features to make drawing fast. It’s also got an extremely dedicated following among its users who share and sell collections of templates called Stencils.

If you’ve used MacDraw II, or LucidChart, you’ve got a pretty good handle on what OmniGraffle can do for you. What it can do for you now with iOS 11 is speed up how you can compile a drawing from other people’s Stencils or your own previous documents.

 

This is done by iOS 11’s drag and drop. It’s the same new drag and drop that has been added to the OmniFocus To Do app where it’s made a significant improvement. It’s the same feature that’s been added to OmniPlan and fixed an issue there that’s been dogging that project management software from the start.

Drag and drop doesn’t make as big a change to OmniGraffle, though. It’s a nice addition and one that when you’ve tried it, you won’t want to go back yet it doesn’t dramatically transform the app.

There are three aspects to how OmniGraffle exploits this new feature. You can now drag items in to your drawing, for instance, and you can drag elements between your drawings. Say you’ve got a floor plan for your house and are now doing one for your office: that sofa shape you spent ages drawing would work fine as a couch in the office plan so you just drag it over.

Similarly, if you’re planning out a bigger office with lots of cubicles then you can just draw one and duplicate it.

In theory you can also drag cubicles or pot plants in your drawings out of OmniGraffle and into other apps but currently that’s limited by how many other apps support this feature. This has long been an issue with OmniGraffle and really all such drawing apps like Lucidchart and Microsoft Visio: the way they play with other apps. You can get drawings from any of them into the rest but typically with some difficulty and actually OmniGraffle’s drag and drop may ultimately improve that. Once other apps are also updated to accept dragged and dropped items.

These most common uses for OmniGraffle —the floor plans, charts and app design —all tend to be jobs where you will reuse elements over and over again. So while everyone will be different, the odds are that you’re most likely to drag elements from one OmniGraffle drawing to another and we can see you building up a library of often-used elements.

Dragging these around is quick and handy, but only once you know how. You could spend the next week stabbing wildly at buttons and options without discovering how to drag an item across multiple documents. That’s really an aspect of iOS 11, however: OmniGraffle uses the same multi-finger approach that the system does.

 

Press and hold on an item you want to drag and then with a different finger, tap at the button to take you out of the current OmniGraffle document. That’s a Library icon which needs finding: rather than to the top left of the screen, OmniGraffle places it in the middle and just to the left the document title.

When you’re back in the Document Picker, as the Omni Group calls it, you can tap to open any other drawing. So long as you’re still holding that element you’ve dragged from the first document, you can now drop it anywhere in the new.

Once it’s in that new drawing, though, you can use exactly the same technique to drag it between different layers of the document.

We keep saying that you’re dragging elements of a drawing around but those elements can be text as well as shapes or re-used templates. You can drag text in from OmniFocus or OmniPlan, for instance. That’s not going to save you a lot of time unless you’re dragging a lot of text but it could be a way to make sure you’re consistent across many documents.

It’s the same process for dragging text or graphics out of OmniGraffle into other apps. We had most success doing it with the app’s stablemates OmniPlan and OmniFocus but even that success was limited.

When we drag to OmniPlan, any text in the item we’re dragging goes into that project management app’s list of tasks and a bar appears representing it in the Gantt chart. When we dragged the same item into OmniFocus, it was entered as a new task called “PDF document.pdf” with an attachment of that name which has the graphic item in it.

You’re not going to do that. Maybe you’d drag the elements from an org chart over to OmniPlan so that you had every member of staff listed but that’s a stretch. Project plans tend to start with what needs to be done rather than who you’ve got to give work to. So really the dragging out of OmniGraffle won’t become hugely useful until other drawing apps adopt iOS 11’s new features too.

OmniGraffle aims to be a complete drawing package. It also aims to make it quick for you to create detailed and technical drawings. So the ability to quickly re-use elements fits in perfectly with that.

It’s not the kind of update that you go wow at or that you know you will rush to use. What is, though, is the kind of update you’ll become so accustomed to that previous versions will seem slow. OmniGraffle is all about making clear, professional drawings with speed and without fuss, however. So this is an update that makes good use of the new iOS 11 features.

OmniGraffle 3.2 for iOS has a free trial version on the App Store and then costs $49.99 for the Standard version. A Pro version is a further $4.99 upgrade or you can go straight from the trial to Pro for $99.99.

How to: Use Siri to Create a Note in Evernote

 

 

 

by Anthony Bartlett of Evernote Blog

Inspiration can strike at the most unlikely times. Paul McCartney woke up one morning with “Yesterday” playing in his mind; Sir Isaac Newton (allegedly) developed his theory of gravity after an apple landed on his head. History is filled with stories like these, but how many great ideas were lost because there was no way of capturing them in the moment?

Now, with the launch of Apple’s iOS 11, it’s easier than ever to document your own “Aha!” moments, whenever and wherever they appear. Thanks to a brand-new integration with Siri, Apple’s virtual assistant, you don’t even need to touch your device to create, add to, and search your notes in Evernote. So you’ll be ready when your next brilliant idea comes along.

What’s the big deal?

In a world that seems to be moving faster every day, keeping track of your thoughts and ideas can be a real challenge. To-do lists and business ideas compete for space in your life with long commutes and endless meetings. But now that Evernote is integrated with Siri, you don’t have to stop being productive simply because you’re busy doing other things. Create a shopping list on your iPad while you’re making breakfast; add to-dos to Evernote on your iPhone while you’re stuck in traffic; create a note with your EarPods while you’re working out.

Here’s how it works:

Before you begin, ensure that Evernote is setup to use Siri by going to Settings > Siri & Search > Evernote > Enable “Use with Siri”.

Awaken Siri on your device (either by holding the Home button or, if you’ve enabled it, saying “Hey Siri”) and then give your instructions directly to Evernote. It’s that simple! For example, here are a few commands you can try right now, once you’ve updated your device to iOS 11:

  • “Evernote, create a note called Meeting Ideas,” or “Create a note called Meeting Ideas in Evernote.”
  • “Evernote, add ‘I should bring pizza’ to my Meeting Ideas note,” or “Add ‘I should bring pizza’ to my Meeting Ideas note in Evernote.”
  • “Evernote, create a list with ‘order lunch’ and ‘make itinerary’,” or “Create a list with ‘order lunch’ and ‘make itinerary’ in Evernote.”
  • “Show me what I created today in Evernote.”

Using these simple commands, you can create a note or list; you can add to your existing notes; and you can search within your notes to find exactly what you need.

With Evernote and iOS 11 integrated seamlessly, you never need to worry about losing your ideas again.

WIT: Apple Included This One Feature Every Woman Should Know About

 

 

 

By LANI SEELINGER of Bustle.com

The new iPhone update is officially out, and say what you will about the new aesthetic features, there’s one feature that could potentially save lives. With the iOS 11, you can place an emergency SOS call from a locked iPhone, and really, this trick is something every woman should know about the new update.

In previous iPhone operating systems, you could call emergency services from a locked screen or by giving Siri the command “charge my phone 100 percent.” While those were effective ways to get yourself out of trouble in most cases, the former wouldn’t always work if the phone’s screen was broken, and the latter wasn’t very discreet.

Now, Apple has fixed both of those problems with this new update. Hopefully you’ll never need to use this feature, but if you should ever be in a tight spot when even speaking to your phone or bringing it out to look at would be dangerous, now you can just quickly press the sleep/wake button five times, and then it will automatically get you in touch with emergency services. If you’ve set an emergency contact in the phone, it will also alert that person that you’re in trouble and give them your location.

And just as an emergency feature should be, it’s incredibly easy to enable.

If you do want it to make a phone call automatically after you’ve pressed the sleep/wake button five times, you have to enable “Auto Call” in your settings. The automatic setting also comes with a protection against just accidentally calling 911 — pressing the button five times starts a three-second countdown, which comes with a countdown noise so you have a chance to cancel the call if you’ve triggered it accidentally. You can turn that countdown sound off in the settings, though. You might want that if you were in a circumstance where an iPhone sound could alert a potential criminal to your location — which, again, is hopefully a situation that you will never find yourself in.

There are a couple of limitations to the feature; for example, it only works in certain countries. If you’re not in the U..S, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain or the UK, then you’ll have to wait for a future update to take advantage of it. All things considered — including the large percentage of the world’s population in those countries — it’s not bad for a start.

While this update will make every iPhone user who has access to it just a little bit safer, it’s especially key for women, who are in many ways much more in danger of being targeted in their everyday lives than men. This could be an effective way to help women who find themselves facing intimate partner violence, a situation in which it’s easy to imagine that even the simple act of making a phone call could put the woman in far greater danger than if she were able to make the call more discreetly.

From a woman’s perspective, this is a big improvement over the days when Apple found itself in hot water for not including a menstrual cycle tracker in its health app update back in 2014. They did manage to fix that little bug back in 2015, this is another signal that Apple is really making a commitment to keeping women safe and healthy. Really the only thing you have to worry about here is activating the call without knowing it — but are you really in the habit of pressing the sleep/wake button five times without paying attention to it? This is a case where it’s definitely better safe than sorry.

App of the Week: tbh

Download This: tbh App may have cracked anonymous apps’ bullying problem.

 

 

 

By Karissa Bell of Mashable

Another anonymous app is at the top of the App Store and it might be because it’s figured out anonymous apps’ biggest problem: bullying.

Called “tbh,” short for “to be honest,” the app takes an unconventional approach to anonymity. While it allows friends to anonymously communicate, it only allows users to exchange compliments, which are sent via in-app quizzes. 

The app, which is aimed at middle schoolers and high schoolers, connects to your address book so you can find people you know. It serves up a series of “polls” about your friends. The questions change but they are all positive, asking you to choose the “world’s best party planner,” or who is “too lit to be legit.”

The app keeps identities a secret, but users can see some details about who’s picked them (e.g. “a girl in the tenth grade”). It’s also borrowed some of the addictive dynamics of free-to-play games, though it doesn’t use in-app purchases at the moment.

 

If someone “chooses” you in a poll, you earn “gems,” which you can use to unlock more features within the app. You can only complete a set number of polls at a time and when you run out, you need to wait for a timer before you can take on more. 

That all may sound gimmicky, but it’s proven to be a winning formula with teens. The app, which is currently only available in a handful of states, has been steadily climbing the App Store charts since it launched in August. On Thursday, it reached the top spot, beating out Facebook, Snapchat, Gmail, and the other apps that typically sit at the top of the App Store.

Addicting Candy Crush-like rules aside, some of that success may also be attributed to tbh’s emphasis on positivity. There are only positive “polls” so users aren’t able to easily bully each other — a problem that’s plagued Sarahah and other teen-centric anonymous apps.

Whether that will be enough to make the app stick with image-obsessed teens is another matter. But it’s definitely off to a strong start.

How to: Utilize Do Not Disturb While Driving

Everything you can do with Do Not Disturb While Driving in iOS 11

 

By Monica Chin of Mashable

With the new iOS update, Do Not Disturb has gotten smarter. It now knows when you’re driving, and can stop you from being irresponsible. 

Do Not Disturb mutes phone calls, notifications, and text messages, keeping your phone dark for a set period of time. If enabled, Do Not Disturb While Driving turns on automatically when it detects the acceleration of a vehicle (you can turn it off if you’re a passenger). You can also enable it to turn on whenever it connects to a car via Bluetooth. 

But the feature doesn’t totally cut you off. You can set Do Not Disturb While Driving to automatically respond to any texts informing their senders that you are driving. 
Your contacts can break through Do Not Disturb by including the word “Urgent” in your texts (this function can be turned off, or limited to certain contacts). You can still make phone calls if the phone is on Speaker or connected to Bluetooth. 
Do Not Disturb While Driving and all of its features can be turned on and customized in Settings > Do Not Disturb. 

 

And if you don’t trust your kids, you can turn on Do Not Disturb While Driving on their phones, and prevent it from being disabled. This can be done in Settings > General > Restrictions. 

This new feature is optional, but we really recommend you try it. It takes about two seconds to turn on, and it could save your life.

How to: record your iPhone screen in iOS 11

 

BY ABHISHEK KURVE of Cult of Mac

Recording your iPhone screen used to be a hassle. If you wanted to capture iOS gameplay, or make a funny or informative GIF of on-screen action, you needed to download a third-party app or connect your device to a computer.

Those days are over: With iOS 11, Apple baked in sweet functionality that lets you record your iPhone screen effortlessly. Here’s how to do it.

How to record iPhone screen natively

 

As you might know, iOS 11 lets you add and organize toggles in the Control Center. In iOS 11, which Apple released Tuesday September 19th, you’ll find the capability to record your iPhone screen is present as a Control Center option.
To use it, open Settings > Control Center and add Screen Recording using the + button.

Now whenever you need to start recording your iPhone screen, just swipe up from the bottom to open Control Center and tap on the “record” toggle, which should look something like this:

The toggle should turn red, indicating that the screen is being recorded. There’s also a persistent notification bar that shows the duration of the recording.

To end the screen capture, just bring up the Control Center again and turn off the recording by tapping on the same toggle.

Once you’ve finished, you can access your iOS screen recording from inside the Photos app. You can also trim the video to adjust its length.

WIT: Sexism And Sisterhood: The Yin And Yang Of Being A Woman In Tech

 

 

By Sophia Matveeva of Forbes

Silicon Valley has recently been rocked by a series of sexism scandals and some very senior heads have rolled. It began with sexual harassment allegations at Uber, which eventually brought down CEO Travis Kalanick. Since then, Dave McClure, co-founder of 500 StartUps, an accelerator, has been forced to resign, and VC firm Binary Capital has been dissolved due to their co-founder’s behaviour towards women. Even Google has not escaped, after a male engineer got fired for a memo he sent arguing women are not as suitable to technical and leadership roles as men.
Women in tech have suddenly become a hot topic.

As a female tech entrepreneur I have had my share of undesirable experiences, and have heard appalling stories from my fellow tech women. The news industry is reporting old news. Here is just one statistic to illustrate the point: last year, venture capitalists invested $58.2 billion in companies with all-male founders, the equivalent figure for women-led firms was a mere $1.46 billion.

When I was raising our first round of funding, I met an angel investor who expressed an interest in the company. Our first meeting was for lunch, and it went well. I did not go to the second meeting because the venue he proposed was his pool. ‘ Don’t bring your laptop, bring your bikini, and we will talk about business after a swim ’ read the text message from him.

A female friend who runs a deep tech start-up, which has some impressive clients, told me she spent three months in Silicon Valley attempting to raise a funding round. She went to meetings with one identikit investor after another but, she said, ‘it’s like they couldn’t get over the fact that a woman was talking so they didn’t hear anything I said.’ She left

Silicon Valley and has since successfully closed her round elsewhere.
An institutional investor I met recently says he does not mind the sexual harassment scandals coming out of tech companies because ‘we are not a social impact investor. If I wanted to support women, I would give to a women’s shelter.’

Dealing with these attitudes and behaviors is just part of my job, and instead of pretending to live in a world I wish I lived in, I live in the world I am really in. This has had a positive impact on the business I co-founded and on my mental wellbeing.

The majority of our first angel round came from wealthy self-made women. Our biggest investment came from a woman I met years ago, when we were both trying to escape a band of drunk bankers. I started my career in financial communications in London and was working on a major transaction with a team of top investment bankers and lawyers. Everyone working on the deal went on a three day visit to the industrial assets of our massive client. There were thirteen people on this trip, ten of whom were men. Out of the three women, I was one, another was sleeping with her boss, and the third became my friend.

As we went from one site to another, the alcohol flowed and the alpha males that comprised our group became more and more rowdy. Me and the remaining woman quickly became friends so we could protect each other from unwanted attention. Fast forward eight years: that woman funds my start up.

Would we have become so close so quickly if we were not seeking protection from harassment in each other? I am not so sure. While I do not support the behavior of the men who put us in this position, that situation gave me a great friend and supporter.

Female tech entrepreneurs are at a huge disadvantage and I do not think that will change soon, despite the efforts of brilliant women like Ellen Pao. However, it is also in this hostile environment that women support each other the most. Women come together in times of adversity, and in our case, this has translated to cash in the bank.

As I am now preparing to raise our next round, my ideal investor is again a wealthy self-made woman. The women I have met in that category have all gone through uneasy paths, but have succeeded despite the obstacles. They are people you can really learn from.

The tech industry is not a female friendly place, but there is no reason women can’t succeed anyway.

App of the Week: Apple Maps – All the features that’ll make you not hate it

Apple Maps is close to rivaling Google Maps with these features

 

By Molly Sequin of Mashable

Apple Maps isn’t the first app most people are clamoring for when they’re lost on a road trip. It’s actually one of the first apps I deleted when iOS finally let you get rid of native iPhone apps. 

But since the iOS 10 update, there are some features that can make Apple Maps an app you’d want to use. Here’s why you might want to consider keeping it around. 

Travel notifications for events

 

 

Apple cross checks its native apps to be as helpful as possible. This means that any events you have saved in your calendar will trigger a traffic notification via Apple Maps. It’ll give you the event time and location while telling you when to leave based on current traffic patterns. This feature could help you avoid showing up late for your next important event. 

Highlighted locations are color coded

 

 

Apple Maps pinpoints landmarks and highlighted locations for users. And these are color-coded so you know exactly what you’re seeing right away. 

For example, restaurants show a fork and knife icon in an orange circle and medical facilities appear as a white-on-red cross. This way, even if a location has a wonky name, you know exactly what it is just by using the color coding. 

Traffic updates

When you’re in a hurry, there’s nothing worse than hitting unexpected traffic. Apple Maps wants to give you a heads up, and even give you time to change your route. Just go to Settings > Maps and tap the slide for traffic.

3D View

Apple Maps currently has options for a 2D and 3D view. Using 3D view gives you a general idea of the neighborhood you’re going to. Although it’s not a 3D view of the actual street, that’s probably going to be here soon. At least that’s what’s expected after seeing a horde of Apple Maps cars zipping around the world. 

Flyover Tour

As if 3D view isn’t enough, Apple Maps also offers a flyover view. Just type in your destination and hit “Flyover Tour.” As the name suggests, it’s a 3D look from up above, as if you’re in a plane flying over the area. It can give you some more insight into a large area that you might not get in 3D mode. But it’s also just super cool to play with. 

Make a reservation

Who calls to make a reservation these days? Even for the people who don’t mind picking up the phone, a lot of restaurants only accept online reservations now. Apple Maps includes a link to Open Table so you don’t have to look it up in a separate search. Although you’re still redirected to the Open Table app, it’s still a time saver. 

Save a home location

 

A nifty trick to make things go a little faster is adding your home location to Apple Maps. To do this, you’ll need to update your home address in your iPhone’s contacts card for yourself. After that’s done, “To Home” will always appear when you open up the app before you search for a location. This way, you don’t have to waste your time constantly typing in your home address.

Wikipedia information

 

If you don’t know a lot about a museum you’re visiting with friends and don’t want to look like a dingus, let Apple Maps lend a hand. After you type in a location, scroll down and you’ll see a Wikipedia summary of what you should know. This can really help out in a pickle. But remember, not everything on Wikipedia is true. 

Route Card

Using the Route Card on Apple Maps can save you a ton of hassle. It’s around to help you find nearby places, like gas stations and coffee shops. You can even add these locations to your route as detours. 

To do this, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and choose which option you need to see nearby locations. Once you choose one, Apple Maps will account for time added on to your trip. When you’ve reached your detour, just hit “End” and resume on your original route. 

Weather

Even though I’m currently in New York City, Apple Maps will tell me weather of any place I look up. In the screenshot above, you’ll see a little box on the right side of the screen that shows it was 83 degrees and cloudy at Camp Randall Stadium when I did this search. And this works for any location. 

It’s super neat, but if you’re planning a long trip be sure to actually look up the extended forecast — we all know weather can change in the blink of an eye.

Yelp reviews

 

If you’ve never been to a place before, there’s always some doubt as to if it’ll live up to your expectations. Apple Maps doesn’t want to see you disappointed upon arrival, so it includes Yelp reviews in the app. Just scroll down after typing in your destination and all the reviews will be there waiting for you. You can even initiate your own review from here. 

Apple Pay

A lot more companies are accepting Apple Pay these days. And it’s a huge convenience for those who use it. So you’d probably want to know if the burger joint your heading to accepts Apple Pay before you show up. 

Apple Maps does just that. After you’ve searched for the place, scroll down below the general business information. You’ll see a section called “Useful to Know” and if it lists Apple Pay there, you’re good to go. This section will also give you details like if you can put in a reservation or order out for delivery. 

Lane guidance

 

While this is currently on the app, Apple Maps will introduce lane guidance with the upcoming iOS 11 that is set to go live this fall. This could be the final differentiator between Apple Maps and Google Maps. So give it when the new iOS rolls out, and then you can make your final decision.

Now that you know all that Apple Maps has to offer, go re-download and give it a fair shot. It’s finally giving Google Maps a run for its money.

How to: find your purchased apps in iOS 11

 

 

 

By Charlie Sorrel of Cult of Mac

The Purchased tab in the iOS App Store may seem to have disappeared in iOS 11, but don’t worry — it has only moved. And got a little less useful. Whereas in iOS 10 and prior, your previously purchased apps were found in their own dedicated App Store tab (iPad) or above the list of app updates (iPhone), now they’re accessed by tapping the little silhouette of a head in a circle, which indicates your user account.

Previous purchases on iOS

 

The Purchases/Purchased section of the App Store is useful for several things. It lets you quickly (or not so quickly, depending on how many apps you have bought) scroll through apps you have bought before, and download them. It also gives access to apps that have been discontinued, either pulled from the store by their developer, or banned from the store by Apple. That’s right — even banned apps remain available to you through the Purchased section.

Where are my purchased apps in iOS 11?

 

To find your previous purchases in iOS 11, open up the App Store as usual, and then tap the little User Account icon at the top right. This is available in all the App Store tabs except the search tab. When tapped, the above popover will open. Tap Purchased and you’ll be taken to the familiar screen letting you vie either your own purchases, or your Family purchases (if Family Sharing is activated).

 

Here, you can scroll through the list, or — by pulling the list down to reveal the search box — narrow the selection by typing.

One thing you won’t find, on the iPad at least, is a list of iPhone-only apps. If you have some old iPhone app that you want to use pixel-doubled on the iPad, you’re out of luck. Even if you know the app you’re looking for, and search on its name, you won’t find it. I tried to find the iPhone-only Instagram, and it doesn’t show up in my purchased list. If I search the App Store for Instagram, though, then I can find it. This may indicate that the App Store isn’t finished in the current iOS 11 beta, and that iPhone/iPad filters will be added in future.

Hiding a purchased app in iOS 11

 

If you’ve been buying those apps that let you lock away “private” photos behind a passcode, and you don’t want anyone else to know about it, then you can still hide it, exactly like you can on iOS 10 right now. Just swipe left on the app in question, and then tap the bright-red Hide button that shows up. You’re done. Nobody need know your filthy secret.

The current lack of iPhone-only apps is a head-scratcher, but other than that the whole functionality of the old Purchases tab is still there in iOS 11. And its new location is probably better, because dedicating a whole tab to purchases seemed crazy. Now its old tab has been given to games instead, which is great news for everyone: Game lovers can get their fix undiluted by regular apps, and game haters can avoid them entirely. The relocation of purchases, then, is just another part of the greatly improved App Store in iOS 11.
