iTunes 11.2.1 review

iTunes 11.2 arrived on Thursday along with Apple's release of a new version of Mavericks (10.9.3). The new version of iTunes has some changes that will be welcome for podcast listeners, along with other enhancements and improvements designed to improve performance and reliability. The initial release also created a bizarre problem involving iCloud's Find My Mac feature and the local /Users folder. On balance iTunes 11.2.1 is an adequate improvements, but iTunes itself is a mess.

One on one with the Apple Store's One to One training

Editor's note: While the more frequent, tech-savvy of iMore's readers might already know their way around an iPhone, iPad, or Mac, for anyone new to Apple, or family and friends not-so-familiar, Apple Retail offers an amazing array of training options that really don't get the attention they deserve. My mom had the opportunity to check out One to One recently and was so thrilled with the experience she offered to write about it for us. Needless to say, I loved the idea. Here's her review! - Rene

Beats Music for iPad review: Putting music discovery front and center

When Beats Music launched at the beginning of this year, it was iPhone only. Luckily that's now changed and Beats has now launched a dedicated iPad app as well. That's right, it isn't just a blown up version of the iPhone app, but one specifically designed to take advantage of the iPad's larger screen size. But does it fix any of my previous issues with Beats? Let's find out!

Google Docs for iPhone and iPad review: It's just as bad as Google Sheets

Google Docs is one of Google's newest iPhone and iPad apps. Just be sure you don't confuse it with the Google Docs service itself, because the Google Docs app deals only with word processing and text editing. If you want to access your spreadsheets, you'll need to grab the Google Sheets app as well. Some folks may ask why Google decided to split these services into two separate apps that were already accessible with the Google Drive app. Perhaps for extra features or capabilities? I recently reviewed Google Sheets and found that wasn't exactly the case. So is Google Docs any different?

Spotify for iPhone review: Finally, some progress!

I have an ongoing love hate relationship with pretty much every music streaming service available. I just want them to be better as none of them as a whole are the best. That's why I was excited when Spotify majorly overhauled their iPhone app. It was a chance to try the service out again and see if the glaring issues that push me on the Rdio side of the fence are finally remedied. Is it good enough for me to give it a second chance? More importantly, is it good enough for you, our readers, to choose it over the many available options? Let's find out...
