Five tips for better organizing your Apple Watch home screen!

Five tips for better organizing your Apple Watch home screen!

The Apple Watch's limited screen real estate makes app organization more important than ever.

Fumbling around the tiny screen of an Apple Watch to hunt down a single app isn't very convenient or practical. You don't have the help of Spotlight, a keyboard, or folders to help find and organize apps like you can on iPhone and iPad. You can always use Siri, but if talking to your watch would be awkward or inappropriate, a better home screen layout can make it much easier to find apps.

How to increase notification privacy on Apple Watch

How to increase notification privacy on Apple Watch

If privacy matters more to you than convenience, you can make sure your notifications only expand when you want them to.

By default, the Apple Watch will show short look notifications — the originating app and a snippet of context like sender name or alert type — but if you keep your arm raised, they'll auto-expand into long look notifications — the contents of a message or email. If you want the convenience of simply being able to raise your arm and read your notifications, this isn't for you. If you'd rather be in control of when and how you see more detailed notifications, however, you can tell your Apple Watch to wait for you to tap the screen before it expands. All you have to do is adjust your settings.

OS X 10.11 wish list: Better Instant Hotspot support

OS X 10.11 wish list: Better Instant Hotspot support

Ever get the sense that OS X Yosemite isn't quite fully baked?

That's how I feel especially when I depend on Continuity features like Instant Hotspot. Continuity in Yosemite and iOS 8 makes the experience of using a Mac and iOS device much more fluid and seamless. You can take and make phone calls from your Mac, continue composing an email on your phone with a swipe, read a web page on your Mac that you started on your iPad and more. I still feel like it's a work in progress, however.

How to customize Message, Mail, Calendar, and other notifications on your Apple Watch

How to customize Message, Mail, Calendar, and other notifications on your Apple Watch

Your Apple Watch can mirror the notification settings of your iPhone, but it can also be customized.

While App Store app notifications remain on/off affairs, some of Apple's built-in apps let you customize what gets sent to your Apple Watch. In some cases you can choose who gets to alert you. In others, what you get alerted about. It's not every app, and it's not completely granular, but it can help you prevent notification from becoming interruption.
