Are you using a custom keyboard on your iPhone?

Are you using a custom keyboard on your iPhone?

When iOS 8 shipped with custom keyboard support, it was a dream come true for anyone and everyone who'd fallen in love with SwiftKey, Swype, or any of the other established players. It also turned out to be a boon for emoji and animated GIF aficionados the world over. Yet the reality was custom keyboards were unintuitive to install and inconsistent to use. So, given all that, are you still using them?

Nexus 6 gets reviewed

Phil Nickinson from our sibling site, Android Central, has just posted his complete Nexus 6 review, and like the Nexus 9 review Jerry Hildenbrand posted a couple days ago... I'm not sure what to think. For the last two years I've bought the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and both Nexus 7s automatically. Aside from the terrible cameras, they were pretty much no-brainers, especially since they were sold practically at cost. Now though?

Which protective case are you using on your iPhone 6?

I get asked about iPhone 6 case recommendations a lot, especially for protective cases, especially by people whose occupations require them. For the last few years I've simply recommend Otterbox or LifeProof and been done with it. This year, however, the feedback for the Otterbox Defender for iPhone 6 has been less than reassuring — the top question on Amazon's page right now is "Has anyone sought feedback from Otterbox on all the complaints this case has received? Has anyone received comments from Otterbox about the issues?" — and, almost two months post-launch, the LifeProof for iPhone 6 still hasn't shipped. So, I'm left wondering — what should I recommend?

My friend and frequent podcast co-host, Don Melton, has recently updated his excellent scripts for transcoding video on the Mac.

72 hours with CarPlay: Test-driving Pioneer's new aftermarket system

Over at Macworld, Susie Ochs spent a few days using one of Pioneer's new after-market CarPlay systems with her iPhone. Her thoughts?

CarPlay is cool, and if I was buying a car that had it, I would be stoked to use it—but I'm not going to upgrade the stereo that's in my 2006 Subaru to this aftermarket Pioneer system.
