How to set up and use Reading Lists in Safari for iPhone and iPad

Reading Lists is Apple's own take on a read-it-later service. Built right into the Safari browser on iPhone and iPad, Reading Lists let you save any articles you stumble across while browsing the web so you can go back and read them at your convenience. Because Reading Lists sync via [iCloud], that can be on the go with your iPhone, lounging at home on your iPad, or while you're enjoying a coffee at your Mac. Since Safari Reading List can save stories from almost any site, it's also perfect for recipes, funny articles, and anything else you want to remember to share later.

What you need to know about WatchKit

Time to break out the big ideas for watch-based computing: WatchKit, Apple's software development kit for creating apps for the Apple Watch, has arrived.

You'll need an iOS developer account to start developing with WatchKit and dive into the nitty-gritty technical details, but if you're merely curious as to what WatchKit will let your favorite developers create, Apple was kind enough to publish a few informational guidelines and a 28-minute video in the public-facing area of their developer center.

If 28-minute videos aren't your jam, however, here's what you need to know about WatchKit — along with a few hints we picked up about the impending Apple Watch.

The Apple Watch screens have a resolution of 390x312 and 340x272

The Apple Watch screens have a resolution of 390x312 and 340x272

Apple made a point when introducing the Apple Watch to show that unlike the various other smartwatches out there, theirs was coming in two different sizes, and now we know that also means two different resolutions. The reasoning is almost entirely gender fashion based: bigger watches look goofy on smaller female wrists, so they get smaller watches. That means the Apple Watch has two different-sized displays — the larger 42mm-tall watch has a 390x312 screen (38mm diagonally), while the smaller 38mm-tall Apple Watch has a 340x272 screen (33.3mm diagonally). This does compare well to competing Android Wear smartwatches, which tend to feature screens that aren't quite as pixel-dense.

First there was just Facebook, and then there was Messenger, and now there is Groups. Yep, Facebook has launched a dedicated app purely for their Groups feature, and, well, it's pretty much a different user interface for the current groups that already exist in the primary Facebook app.

Review: Vellum 1.2 brings ebook creation into the 21st century

Review: Vellum 1.2 brings ebook creation into the 21st century

I've been building and editing ebooks for just over four years now. I started back in 2010 with Macworld when we were still hand-compiling HTML files; and though our process changed and simplified greatly over the years, we still needed multiple programs and long working hours to put everything together for multi-platform ebook releases.

Enter Vellum. I got my first glimpse of the Mac app two years ago back in its early beta stages: At the time, the WYSIWYG ebook-builder only supported text and limited styling, but its live-preview engine and instant-compile for iBooks, Kindle, and Nook gave me true hope for a great cross-platform ebook tool. Vellum 1.0 launched this January with those limited tools, and image support promised down the road. 11 months later, the company has delivered on that promise.

Get Guardians of the Galaxy today from iTunes, 3 weeks before the Blu-ray release

Today, for $19.99 you can buy Guardians of the Galaxy in HD from iTunes for $19.99 — and today is 3 weeks before its scheduled for release anywhere else, including the vaunted Blu-ray release. The film, one of the best of the year with an overwhelming 90% from Rotten Tomatoes, launches a new expansion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, literally making it more of a universe by only spending a few minutes on Earth. Plus there's an absolutely amazing soundtrack (which we would be remiss if we didn't point out is free today on Google Play Music).

Vainglory interview: Creators talk heroes, controls, Metal, and more!

Most games released for the iPhone and iPad don't get a demo at an Apple press event. Yet that is just what developer Super Evil Megacorp got a chance to do in September when their debut game, the fantasy Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA)-style game Vainglory, was shown on stage during the iPhone 6 launch event. Now that the game is finally out in the US and Europe, we wanted to learn more about the title. We received answers to our email questions from Bo Daly, the CEO and co-founder of Super Evil Megacorp, along with Kristian Segerstrale, its COO and Executive Director.
