What if you could just swipe sideways to switch between apps on your iPad? Well, you can! John Martellaro shows you how to perform this most innocent of finger gestures.
If you'd like to assign a place to images in iPhoto, there are a few ways you can go about it. One method in particular—copying and pasting the location data—makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The other ways are OK too, we suppose. For all of the details, come on in and read this tip.
You have a Mac and an Apple TV, but sometimes you want to watch your movies and TV shows on your iPad. How do you do that without syncing videos to your iPad? It's pretty easy once you enable Home Sharing.
If you remember what it was like to wait for film and print processing back in the day, you can truly appreciate today's iCloud and Photo Stream technologies.

Remember back in grade school when we were always being told that such and such was "our friend"? Like "Mr Toothbrush is our friend!" Well, in this case, our iPhones really are our friends only we get to make the rules. Nancy Carroll Gravley shows you three ways to make your iPhone an even better friend.
Panic's Status Board for the iPad lets you see all kinds of information at a glance, but its real power comes into play when you start building your own modules to see your own customized information. Sure, that opens up opportunities for coders to design custom modules, but the Panic team also made it fairly easy for mere mortals to roll their own, too.

When iOS 5 was released, Apple introduced geofences, the ability to detect proximity to a location.

In addition to 3rd party app data, iCloud also stores data for a few Apple apps and services, and if this data gets corrupted you can wind up with a very unstable iPhone (or iPod or iPad). Unfortunately Apple doesn't provide a way to let you tell iCloud to reset this data. Short of permanently disabling "Documents & Data" syncing with iCloud, the only way to fix this is to delete the offending data from the iCloud (Mobile Documents) folder on your Mac and reboot your iOS device.

They're Christmas present ideas, right?
