When Fantastical was first released it brought with it a fresh take on the Mac's Calendar thanks to its easy to use drop down menu view and natural language event entry system. Where the original made a great addition to Apple's Calendar apps, Fantastical 2 is an excellent replacement and shows just how much power you can pack into a minimalist interface. Is Fantastical 2 right for you? Read on to find out.
There are many things to like About Apple. There are also plenty of things for Apple enthusiasts to criticize when the company makes mistakes. However, even if you really don't like Apple, for any reason, it's still important to not only pay attention but even embrace its technologies.
Boinx Software has released their crowdfunded app PartySnapper. Kelly spent some time with it and has the scoop on this new way to share and stream photos.
iBOLT has released a new car dock for iPhones (5 thru 6 Plus) called the iPro2. Many people will find that it is the perfect dock for their needs. iBOLT seems to have thought of everything, even including an integrated Lightning connector. It even works with an iPhone in a heavy duty protective case.
Filters can really spice up your photos and Vern Seward talks about two that no iPhoneographer should be without in this week's iPhoneography 101.
Pyle Audio has released a digital thermometer that works with iOS devices. It allows users to take a temperature in seconds without difficulty for the user or trauma to the patient. The free IOS app keeps a log of each patient's history. There are no moving parts that a child could remove. Amazon's price is very good, and Nancy recommends it.

Like to use filters when taking photos with your iPhone? In this week's iPhoneography 101, Vern Seward points out several you are bound to want.
The Q card case for iPhone 6 Plus from CM4 holds three cards/cash, provides drop protection, and has a very clever way to provide a kickstand with two position options. A screen protector and a micofiber cleaning cloth are provided. It comes in five colors, and Nancy liked it.
Griffin’s Survivor Slim for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus provides serious drop protection (MIL-STD 801G), works with the fingerprint scanner, is fairly light weight, and, as a bonus, is actually easy to remove from the package without the aid of a chain saw. It's easy to insert the iPhone, but getting it out is not. The surface texture affords a great grip. Nancy Gravley fills us in.
