Apple Makes iMovie, GarageBand, and iWork Apps for Mac and iOS Free for All Users

iMovie, Numbers, Keynote, Pages, and GarageBand for both Mac and iOS devices have been updated and are now listed in the App Store for free.

There may be some that saw these apps as only available for purchase before so this could be of interest to them.

Samsung’s amazing Gear 3 smartwatch now has an official iOS app

It’s been a long-time coming, and long rumored, but it’s finally here: Today Samsung pushed live its iOS app for the company’s high-end Gear S2 and S3 smartwatches.

The Samsung Gear S app delivers support, tracking for the watch as well as the ability to download and install watch faces and apps directly from the Gear store. This makes the Gear watches one of the first major non-Apple smartwatches to come to the iPhone with robust support.

Currently, the only smartwatch with full support for the iPhone is Apple’s own Apple Watch. The bulk of smartwatches run on Google Wear, which is designed for Android devices. Google Wear does have an iOS app but it does little more than offer up a small number of watch faces and notification support. It leaves behind the robust line-up of apps created for Android.

I've not been a fan of Samsung's watch mainly because it had limited support outside of Samsung phones. If they are opening that up wider and better to other phones and platforms that is a really good thing. The closeness of their platform has kept me from even looking further at their products, but this looks promising.

Google Drive can now backup iPhones to make Android switching easier

I've had a number of Samsung Android phones as well as an iPhone before and you never know when you want to switch brands etc. I've alway made a point of not using the OEM's syncing and backup services. So today too on my Macbook I don't use iMessage or Apple's cloud services. I prefer to use something that is more cross-platform. So this move my Google makes it that much easier for iOS users to stay interoperable.

Google has updated its website that guides iPhone owners through the process of making the change to Android. But more importantly, the company is also adding a new feature to its Google Drive app on iOS: the ability to instantly back up your contacts, calendar, and camera roll and store it in the cloud. That way, whenever you buy a Pixel or some other Android phone, all your stuff will be waiting in Google’s various apps. It’s all automatic when done this way, as opposed to before when you’d have to upload this stuff from several different apps.

The new option is found in the settings menu under “backup.” Also it’s probably not very instant if you’ve got a lot of stuff on your iPhone; Google says it can take several hours in some cases, so you’ll want to have your phone plugged in and on reliable Wi-Fi during the process. The app must stay open and on screen, as well.
