Courtesy of The Early Edition developer Nick Takayama, here's how to setup a shared Reminders list for shopping, and keep it updated via Siri. Hey, relationships are hard enough, so easy, fun, and geeky ways to reduce the friction are always appreciated.
So which email services are you using on your iPhone? Apple gives away iCloud's me.com addresses for free now, geeks love their Gmail (though not the app!), Yahoo! mail is still going strong, even if Yahoo! isn't, and Microsoft recently said 2 million iOS 5 users were using Hotmail, and growing at the rate of 100k a day now that it's easier to setup (go figure!). Then there's corporate Exchange, your ISP's email, home-spun servers, and all sorts of other stuff.
Apple initially stated they would officially launch their iTunes Match service by the end of October. We previously heard they would be launching the service this past Saturday. Seeing as the developer beta expires today we are wondering whether or not we will see an official launch or developers will get another seed. As of this morning there was nothing new in the developer portal and nothing official has been announced or shown up as an update.
Backing up multiple devices or maybe you want to keep a copy of your Camera Roll and the tons of videos that come with and, and you're wondering how to buy more iCloud storage to contain it all? Well you the good news is, Apple makes it incredibly easy.
First off go to Settings on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
iCloud highlights automatic iTunes Music downloads across devices, Documents in the Cloud propagating updates, iBooks bookmarks copying themselves from iPhone to iPad, and Photo Stream taking the pictures from iPhone and popping them into iPhoto.
Rene, Georgia, and Seth talk using iPhones at work, what apps make the home screen, the Siri ad, iCloud and battery life issues, camera improvements, celebrating Steve Jobs, and Hal 9000. This is iPhone Live!
Apple has informed its iOS developers that it intends to reset iTunes Match beta accounts on Thursday October 27. Apple states that this is intended to improve “overall quality and reliability” of the service. Resetting iCloud data is nothing new as it has happened a few times during the iOS 5 and iCloud betas.
Now that you're running on iOS 5 you have the ability to create OTA backups. While iCloud will do this for you automatically, you may find the need to perform one manually. Maybe you need to swap out a device or switch to a different one. Regardless the reason, creating a backup manually is an easy enough task.
