Apple released an update for Remote Desktop earlier this month that fixes several issues that were effecting the app’s stability and usability. Here’s a quick list of everything you’ll have to look forward to in version 3.7.1.
- Support for OS X Mavericks.
- Automatic copy and paste between local and remote computers.
- Enhanced multi-observe for systems with multiple displays and IP addresses.
- Prevents an issue that could cause the OS X Firewall to block Remote Desktop connections. If you previously updated a Remote Desktop client to 3.7 and lost access to it because of the OS X Firewall service, restart the client computer after installing the 3.7.1 update. The correct firewall rule will be automatically added, and you will be able to connect to the client via Remote Desktop.
- Improves reliability of the kickstart command.
- Fixes the “Display full screen” option in Control & Observe preferences.
Apple’s Stonestown Galleria Apple Retail Store in San Francisco is about to re-open following a massive transformation, reports ifo Apple Store. Previously, the Apple Store in one of San Francisco’s most popular malls was one of the narrowest Apple retail stores out there, measuring just 25 feet wide. Partly due to this reason, Apple decided to move the store to a new location in the mall, and with it, the store’s width will increase threefold.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is undoubtedly one of our most beloved PS2-era games, which is why when we found out that Rockstar was bringing the game to iOS, Android and Windows Phone, we got very excited indeed. The thought of tearing it up in San Andreas while on our commutes just gets us all sweaty, and in a very good way.
In fact, we’re so excited that we wanted to remind everyone that GTA: San Andreas will be available to buy on iOS from midnight tonight, assuming you’re in New Zealand or Australia!
If you’re an app developer, you may want to seriously consider localizing all your apps to the Japanese market. That’s because Japanese customers now outspend US customers when it comes to paid-for apps. The news comes from the latest market report from AppAnnie. Some highlights:
The introduction and rise to prominence of the cloud in recent years has made the rigmarole of file sharing a whole lot less cumbersome. Moreover, mobile devices needn’t be packed to the gills with storage space, for the cloud can hoard stuff we don’t immediately need in a secure unit. This, of course, is a pretty idealistic view, since a lot of folks still like to retain files on a device for convenience or offline viewing, and if you’ve ever wished you could share said files without having to find some kind of Web-based middleman, PhotoFast’s i-FlashDrive has your back.
Compatibility between iOS and Android is getting better, even if partisan users on both sides refuse to acknowledge the existence of the other, and the i-FlashDrive is perhaps the most uniting product we’ve ever seen. It’s a versatile connector that allows you to directly attach two devices of Android, iOS, and even Windows (although it won’t, unfortunately, work with BlackBerry), and from there, shoot files from one side to the other.
As you’ll see from the press image below, it is perfectly acceptable for a Samsung Galaxy S4 to consensually connect as one, and even though some will cringe at the sight, it should be remembered that it is, after all, the twenty-first century.
