Hi, everyone. Can I first say I am a passionate iOS, iMac user. However, I am a passionate #microsoft0ffice  user too. Why? Because I have access to my documents on all my iOS, MacOS and PC devices. Further, Pages doesn't come close to being as good as Word. I like Numbers and use it on my iPhone daily but Excel is king in the spreadsheet world. If Apple allowed Dropbox direct editing and uploading on iOS like it does on MacOS I wouldn't need to use Microsoft's OneDrive but you can't download, edit and upload in iOS in Dropbox. On iOS, however with OneDrive, I can download in Word, as well as the other apps, edit the files and re-upload. Then, carry on on a PC; then, carry on at home.
I realise that there aren't many people like me who love Office as much as they love Apple (I have used the iOS Work apps for a long time and the equivalent iCloud apps since they first appeared with iCloud.com) but for access-anywhere information it is Office and OneDrive. Yes, I know there's a cost for Office 365 to edit files but it's simply the only option if you use both PCs, Macs and iOS devices. So, come on, Apple. Give us universal Cloud editing and a lot more storage and then we could all use iWorks wherever we were. It's a no brainer, as far as I am concerned. :)

Yes, I've used the web version but so many features are in beta so until it becomes fully functioning it's simply not good enough for what I need to do. It's a great start though and the fact that you can now preview attachments in Pages is a great. :-) Long overdue though. 
Recently, Google updated their Google Docs suite. iCloud needs more updating, sooner rather than later.

Fantastic article - well worth reading. 
Although it has been around for a while, multitasking has became a product of a tightening "do more with less" economy. A 2008 Harvard study showed that almost half of professionals (which would

Here's something that I didn't know until recent months. In Messages, if you open a particular sender / receiver's messages and you want to know when that person sent the message, left drag on the screen and you'll see the times of delivery appear. Let go and your replies slide back. Very useful!

Not sure if anyone else realised but you can switch between 5 min intervals and 1 minute intervals in the iOS calendar time wheel selector by double-tapping on the wheel. Vey useful!

Hey Rob and group. Having an issue moving apps out of folders on my iPhone 5s using 7.1.1. They are stuck and return to the folder I've moved them from despite the length of time I drag them put for once they're wiggling. I don't want to delete and reinstall if there's a quick fix. Anyone else having similar issues? This is with apps on the launchpad and home screen. Thanks for all everything you do Rob. I've been listening since day one. :)
