11 ways to sync your data with an iPhone

How to access files, notes, to-dos, and even your Mac from the road

Control your Mac

You need to start a backup but you’re miles away from your Mac? Much as you can control another Mac using Leopard’s Screen Sharing feature, you can control a Mac from your iPhone. The means for doing so is a VNC (Virtual Network Computing) client such as ReadPixel’s $7 RemoteTap . A VNC client places a tiny version of a Mac’s display on the iPhone’s screen, which you can control by dragging and tapping.

Put your Mac desktop on your iPhone with Remote Tap

*******************************************************************

Because your remote Mac is doing the work, you can also use your VNC client to send yourself documents or view files that otherwise would not display on the iPhone. Just open the file remotely on your Mac and use the stretch gesture to enlarge and view it.

Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later. *3G works just video refresh is slow so not possible to stream video and sound could be better but i can play poker on the major sites relatively easy

* I’m very happy that after months without an update RemoteTap has received two recent updates. I hope progress continues. This is a very handy app.

If you don’t need to control your Mac, but you do want to be able to grab files from it, Flying Mac’s $35 FarFinder is a better alternative to a VNC client. FarFinder lets you use a Web browser (a free iPhone application awaits Apple approval) to navigate your Mac in a Finder-like view-far easier than trying to fit your Mac’s entire screen on your iPhone’s tiny display. You can e-mail files to yourself, or in some cases even view files (images and PDFs, for example) in the browser. But keep in mind that your computer has to be turned on for this to work.

Send files to your iPhone

Before you head off to that important business meeting, you want to make sure you have the company’s latest sales figures and competitive analysis at your fingertips. In the days before the App Store existed, there wasn’t an easy way to stash files on your iPhone and view them. Now you have several options.

To move files from your Mac to your iPhone over a local wireless network, try Magnetism Studios’ $5 FileMagnet . FileMagnet will also let you view iPhone-compatible files-though you can’t edit them. Keep in mind that for these files to be viewable on the iPhone, their names must have the appropriate extension-.jpg or .doc, for example.

FileMagnet

Sync your files to SugarSync’s servers and they’re available to your iPhone and other computers.

Sugarsync

If you want to share a document with other Macs as well as with your iPhone, or if you like the concept of instantaneous access, turn your attention to Sharpcast’s SugarSync. The online service expands the concept of push data-Apple’s MobileMe, for example, will “push” contacts, calendars, and e-mail to your iPhone-to include documents and media files. You simply upload files to SugarSync’s servers via the SugarSync Manager application installed on your Mac, and those files become available to other computers and mobile devices such as the iPhone and iPod touch. Install the free SugarSync iPhone app and you have nearly immediate access to those files. You can view iPhone-compatible files as well as stream MP3 and AAC audio files. Pricing starts at 10GB of storage for about $2.50 a month.

Sneak files off your iPhone

Want to turn the tables and copy files from your iPhone-including call logs, SMS messages, media files, and notes? Ecamm Network’s $20 PhoneView is the way to do this. When you plug your iPhone into your Mac, PhoneView launches and lets you browse some of the contents of your phone. Find an item you want and click on Copy From iPhone to move it to your Mac. This is handy for restoring your music files if a dead hard drive kills your iTunes library. The program also lets you create folders on the iPhone for storing your files (you can’t access these files on the iPhone-they’re for the purpose of storage only).

PhoneView

Sync with multiple calendars

With Google’s Calaboration tool, a Google calendar, and iCal, you can sync a shared calendar with multiple Macs and iPhones.

Calaboration

Keeping events in sync between multiple people using multiple Macs and iPhones is no easy feat. The secret is to create an iCal-compatible Google calendar.

To do this, set up a Google calendar and use the online tools to share it with your family members or coworkers. On each Mac that needs access to the calendar, download the free Google Calaboration-yes, it’s spelled that way-and select the Google calendars you wish to synchronize with iCal. Now when you add or edit events with this calendar in either iCal or Google Calendar, those events are updated for everyone subscribed to it. To keep the iPhones in sync, simply configure them in iTunes to sync to this iCal calendar.

Push around your Google data

If you keep your contacts, e-mail, and calendars in Google’s apps and want that data pushed to your iPhone, check out Google Sync. Once you set up a Google Sync account, changes to your Google contacts, calendars, and e-mail will immediately sync with your iPhone and your computer. What’s more, the service is free-unlike the $99 MobileMe account that Apple requires for its push service.

Sync notes and to-dos

At the moment, Apple doesn’t offer any way of syncing data from the iPhone’s Notes app or to-dos from iCal on the Mac. Although Apple has promised to offer a way to sync notes in the upcoming iPhone 3.0 software update (no word yet on to-dos), there’s no need to wait. If you’ve been as frustrated by this forehead-slappingly-obvious omission as we are, forget iCal and Notes; the key to this particular magic trick lies elsewhere.

Keep It Online As long as you usually have a good Internet connection, one workable alternative to syncing is to use an online service. RememberTheMilk, Toodledo, and Google’s Gmail offer free online to-do lists you can access from Safari on your iPhone or from any browser on your Mac. (The first two sites also support notes.) To set this up in Gmail, go to your Gmail settings screen, click on the Labs tab, and enable Tasks. Tasks will appear in the normal Gmail screen on your Mac; to view them on your iPhone, browse to http://gmail.com/tasks.

Keep track of important tasks no matter where you are with To Do

todo

Sync via the Web If you prefer to keep your notes and to-dos in an iPhone app that’s accessible even when you’re offline, you have several options. Appigo’s $10 Todo and Toodledo’s own $4 iPhone app both offer powerful to-do-list features-including notes-and sync with Toodledo.com. If tasks are less important to you, you can save money by going with Appigo’s $5 Notebook, which works similarly but focuses on notes. Unfortunately, none of these services syncs with iCal, so you’ll need to manage your to-do lists via the service’s Web site while at your Mac.

Skip the Web To forego a Web browser altogether, you’ll need a program that has both iPhone and Mac versions. Ross Tulloch’s $4 SyncBook syncs notes between the two platforms. On the Mac, notes appear as text files that you can edit in TextEdit. For advanced task- and project-management, Cultured Code’s Things (iPhone version, $10; Mac version, $50) is an attractive and easy-to-use program that includes schedules, priorities, tags, and notes; the iPhone and Mac versions automatically sync over your local network.

Fool the iPhone If you’re determined to sync notes without any outside help, try disguising your notes as something else. In Address Book, create a new contact and place your text in the contact’s Notes field. Mark it as a business and give it a useful name. Address Book on your Mac will reflect changes you make on the iPhone, and vice versa. The downside, of course, is that you have to manage your notes using contacts, but with some clever naming you can keep notes grouped together at the beginning or end of your contacts list.

Other great apps include:

Jaadu VNC and Logmein

iPhone / Internet Users – 50 Kick Ass Websites you should know about

It’s time to update the entries in your browser’s links toolbar. But with recent estimates putting the size of the internet at well more than 100 million distinct websites, it’s getting harder and harder to get a handle on all the great stuff that’s out there. That’s why we’ve compiled this list. And unlike some lists you may have seen, which try to name the very “best” websites, but end up just telling you a lot of stuff you already know, we’ve chosen instead to highlight 50 of our favorite sites that fly under most people’s radar. Think of it as the Maximum PC blog roll (remember those?). These sites represent great alternatives to popular web destinations like YouTube and Hulu, and include useful references, powerful web apps, and the unknown blogs you must absolutely bookmark.
You might have heard of some of these sites, but we’ll bet you haven’t heard of all them. Read on and find out. You won’t be disappointed.

Demoscene.tv

See What Can Be Done with 4 Kilobytes

top 50 websites

If you’re any kind of nerd at all, you probably know about the demoscene, where talented programmers create complex videos rendered in real-time, stored in incredibly small files. If you’re not familiar, you should make yourself acquainted with the scene, and all of the trippy, procedurally-generated content it has to offer. And hey, it’s not like you’re going to hit your bandwidth cap watching demos.

But what if you just want to see what all the fuss is about without actually downloading and running an executable? That’s where demoscene.tv comes in. Think of it as YouTube for the scene, letting you watch demos in HD on the web. And if you like what you see, the full demo executable is just a click away.

lite.Facebook.com

Clutter-Free Social Networking

You can admit it. Along with Twitter, Facebook is one of the sites that you absolutely feel compelled to check every day to keep track of your friends’ activities and latest funny links. But while we’re all for friend-stalking, we could definitely do without the AJAX-heavy sidebars and interface modules that clutter up the Facebook homepage. Try using Facebook Lite, which gives you lean views of friend feeds and your user profile. You get access to essential image and update posting functionality without being bothered by the newest Facebook game apps.

top 50 websites

Soyouwanna.com

What They Didn’t Teach You in School If you’ve ever needed some advice on how to do go about doing the most obscure, but didn’t really know who to turn to without receiving some sort of critical feedback, So You Wanna is a great resource for inquiring minds that think alike. So you wanna…audition for American Idol? Bottle your home-made beer? Get a travel visa to a foreign country? So You Wanna tells you all about it and assists you in your quest to become the all-knowing. Note that there is some NSFW content floating around the site.

Google Building Maker

Crowd Sourcing the 3D World

14th Century cartographers would be right about Google Earth – its world is pretty flat. Despite high-resolution satellite imagery that lets you zoom in on your neighbor’s skylight, buildings are still part of one big flat surface. That’s where you come in. Google’s Building Maker is a website that lets you help design and create buildings for Google Earth. Using a plug-in based version of their Sketch-up modeling program, you can easily create a textured 3D model of your neighborhood or local landmarks and submit them to be included in the Google Earth database. The process is surprisingly simple and really fun to use. Google has rolled out the service to 50 cities so far, but plans on expanding its reach in the future.

There’s more to Life than the Internet

That’s where Rules for My Unborn Son comes in; this blog regularly posts the important lessons that’ll really help you get by in life. Rules like “Never eat lunch at your desk” and “Compliment your mom’s cooking” may be common sense for most of the world, but it’s sage advice for the unwashed masses of geeks.

io9.com

Be a Sci-Fi Superfan

top 50 websites

Ok, ok, so io9 is a Gawker blog, and therefore not exactly “under the radar.” Nonetheless, it’s one of the blog mega-network’s lesser known sites, and an absolute must-read for any science fiction fan (we know you’re out there). All mediums get covered — television shows, movies, books, and even comics. The editors know their Cylons from their Cardassians, and the editorials give you more to stretch your mind than typical geek debates.

Do high-concept gadgets like the Optimus Keyboard tickle your fancy? Yanko Design is a blog that focuses entirely on futuristic design concepts from studios like Art. Lebedev.

Skip the Robot, Talk to a Person

top 50 websites

These days, calling technical support can be a real nightmare for a number of reasons: long hold times, unintelligible outsourced operators, and “Tier 1” technicians who almost inevitably know less about the product in question than you do. But the worst of all tech-support injustices is the automated frustration dispensers that companies sometime employ to put you through a labyrinth of touch-tone menus before you can talk to a real person.

But you don’t have to put up with all of that, thanks to Gethuman.com, which tells you—on a company by company basis—exactly what number to call and what buttons to press to get through to a real, human operator.

“Interactive fiction” is a term used to refer to text-based adventure games which rely on clever writing and imagination, rather than fancy graphics. Although you’re probably more familiar with the classic interactive fiction games that were popular around the dawn of PC gaming, such as Zork and Adventure, there are plenty of enthusiasts still hard at work turning out new and innovative works in the genre. Ifarchive.org is the place to go to find pretty much an interactive fiction game, new or old, as well as emulators and other software needed to play them.

TheSixtyOne.com

Listen to Music, Level Up

top 50 websites

Tired of music sites that just let you listen to music? Wish more stuff in your life had RPG elements? Then you should definitely give TheSixtyOne.com a look. A music site with a decidedly indie slant, songs on TheSixtyOne are uploaded by artists themselves, and voted on by users. The gimmick? Whenever a song that you’ve voted for goes on to be voted for by others, you gain experience and levels.

Crackle.com

Watch TV Shows and Movies You Can’t Find on Hulu

NBC’s Hulu may be the dominant video-streaming service for legally watching TV shows and movies, but its catalogue isn’t nearly comprehensive. Rival service Crackle fills in missing shows and films owned by Sony Pictures, in case you want to watch movies like Ghostbusters or Groundhog Day. Cracke’s collection isn’t as big as Hulu’s, but there are plenty of hidden gems here (Karate Kid II, anyone?).

Insightful Gaming News without the Kotaku Crowd

Boingboing’s gaming spinoff cherry picks only the most interesting gaming links and industry news for its blog, adding insightful commentary with a little nostalgic bent to each post.

The Best Place to Upload Your Videos

We’ve given up all hope for Youtube. Vimeo – founded by the creators of CollegeHumor – is the premium cable equivalent of internet video. The simple upload interface, relatively quick processing times, and elegant video interface make this our preferred video hosting site. The moderated channels have high-quality content (there’s even a channel for anaglyph 3D video!), and the community has more than a single-digit lexicon.

Craiglook.com

Craiglist Gets Unstuck from 1995

Craigslist is undoubtedly the best place online marketplace to barter or trade goods, but its interface and navigation system leaves much to be desired. But since all of its content can be read through RSS feeds, you’re not forced to actually use the Craigslist site. Craiglook is a mash-up of Craiglist feeds (read through Yahoo Pipes) and Google Maps. Its location radius-based search is the site’s most useful feature, and its content is always up to date with the main Craigslist directory.

Drop.io

Collaborate in Real-Time without the Wave

Yes, we know everyone is excited about the potential of Google Wave as an end-all solution for real-time project collaboration. But in its Beta state, Wave is too buggy and slow to earn our recommendation. Drop.io takes a simpler approach to real-time collaboration: users share online “drop” repositories which host documents and images. We dig that Drop.io doesn’t require complicated user accounts or unnecessary social networking elements. Yahoo apparently feels the same way, and has pre-installed Drop.io’s Attach Large Files feature into every Yahoo mail account.

Spotify.com

A Social Music Platform to Replace iTunes

Spotify is a new music service that hopes to streamline the way we both stream and purchase new music. The company was launched with the blessing of several major labels, in a refreshingly forward-thinking move on the part of the music industry. Because of this, Spotify is able to stream full, high-quality tracks from these labels without fear of retribution. Our favorite feature is the ability to create and save playlists for later. This really adds to the illusion that you now have an unlimited music library on your computer. While Spotify is not yet available for US residents, we await its stateside debut with bated breath.

6 Fun iPhone Animal Apps to Get Kids Reading and Learning

If you own an iPhone, and you also have toddlers or kids who are about to enter school, put the iPhone and the kids together with some of the apps listed below to keep the kids busy as they prepare themselves for school.

The list below is separated by categories, and each app is listed alphabetically under those categories to show that we do not favor one app over another. The links lead to reviews about the apps or to the businesses that created the apps. This way, you can learn more about the apps before you download them.

While many of the apps listed below are free, some cost anywhere from $0.99 to under $4.00. Also, the reviews can help you learn whether the app truly is age-appropriate for your child.

1. ABC Animals Teaches Kids to Write Using iPhone

Capture1_thumb
ABC Animals is a clever application because it can be used by children across a large age range. I’m not sure if the developers at Critical Matter intended this. But, I’ve found it can be used by children as young as 18 months, up to as old as seven – depending on their level of development. And, given the rate at which children grow and develop during the first 7 years of their life this a decent achievement.

The application supports children to learn their ABCs. A child is able to flick through iPhone cards from A-Z. Each card has the letter in upper and lowercase and a cartoon picture of an animal that begins with that letter. (Geek sensibilities are catered for a “D” is sometimes represented by a dragon).

Young children can simply flick through look at the pictures and repeat the letters and words. While older children, by double tapping the screen can flip the card over to examples of how the letters are written. Then, using their finger or a iPhone pen they can trace the letter, just like they do in school learning to write.

This second aspect of the application has a lot of potential; my only qualm is that the double tap feature is not offered in any form of instructions in the application. I discovered it by accident.   I love the fact the letters are sitting on “lined paper” graphics and the clear directives on how to write letters had me imagining school classrooms full of children with iPhones (a high tech return to the “chalk and slate” that our grandparents used).

ABC Animals could do with some options and instructions. Still, it offers ABC activities for young children right through their development.

Though, the developer’s images are poorly targeted at kids. I think the images suit children aged 8+. The eyes of the animals look like they belong on Bratz dolls and to better engage younger children they could use much simpler graphics

Still, another fine app, once a few refinements are made. Worth the $2.99 price at iTunes because it can be used by children of different ages and stages.

Wired: An iPhone App that supports child literacy from 18 months to 7 years.

Tired: Need instructions and the images aren’t the best for younger children.

4. Dex ABC Animals flash cards

Camdiloo media’s Dex ABC Animals flash cards is one of a series of educational applications developed for the iPhone, designed with toddlers and pre-school children in mind. As parents, we have all witnessed the attraction the iPhone holds for young kids. As designers, their goal is to combine educational tools with the iPhone’s interface, and to merge that with a high emphasis on quality, mindful designs. Flash cards are a wonderful learning tool for young children and they bring hours of enjoyment and educational benefits. Inspired by traditional, familiar card layouts, their flash cards combine bold colors, large simple alphabet letters and custom illustrations to bring the flash card concept to life. Each letter of the alphabet is paired with a corresponding animal, helping to teach your toddler ABCs, animal names, first sight words, upper- and lower-case letterforms, and the pronunciation of letters and the animal names.They have kept the interface and overall touch-screen experience simple and intuitive, so children of all ages can navigate the cards. With a simple “tap”, the card flips, while a “slide” of the finger advances to the next card. They have also included some custom settings which allow the deck of flash cards to be shuffled and restacked, among other features.

They have enjoyed creating this application and have been motivated by watching the excitement level of their own children increase during the development process. 

Languages: English

Requirements:
Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch

6.Landleben, a charming barn adventure for toddlers and families

For your iPhone or iPod touch.

Inside a little bouncing barn, friendly farm animals are waiting to pop out and surprise your little one. Try and guess who they are; tap the doors to find out!

Work with your child to learn the names of animals — in English or Spanish — and hear the sounds they make! Younger children will love opening the barn doors to find a new animal animation, as they learn about cause and effect and become familiar with animal names and sounds. Preschoolers will enjoy guessing animals by sound, then seeing the animal names, which helps them develop early literacy skills. And everyone will adore the illustrations by Divya Srinivasan, whose work is regularly featured in the New Yorker.

Peekaboo Barn was made for you and your toddler by artists and educators, not marketers, robots, or companies repackaging clip art. Our team has backgrounds in cognitive science and child development, and we’ve worked in educational media everywhere from Yahoo! to the Smithsonian Institution.

When you could really use a safe distraction — in airports, restaurants, and waiting rooms — or you’d like to try something new with your little genius, Peekaboo Barn is the educational, artful solution. Enjoy!

23. Change Your iPhone to an Universal Remote with Red Eye

With the RedEye system you can use your iPhone or iPod touch to control your TV, stereo, cable box, DVD player, and many other devices that receive standard (infrared) signals. In other words, no more hunting through your sofa cushions for all those different remotes – all the control you need is right in your pocket.

  • Personal. Each person in your house can use her own iPhone or iPod touch as a controller, and more than one controller can interact with your gear simultaneously.
  • Simple. One touch launches any activity – watch TV, listen to music, play a video. And custom screen layouts for each activity mean you never have to hunt for the right button.
  • Smart. Multi-touch gestures for common functions, free software upgrades delivered through iTunes, the ability to control different rooms from anywhere in the house – all cheaper than other universal remotes.


There are plenty of other applications for iPhones. But I discussed some of the most important and useful ones. I hope you liked the idea. For any query or suggestion, write to me.

3. Letter Tracer preschool letters writing practice

Help your preschooler and other prereading children trace and paint letter and number shapes so they’ll be prepared for reading and writing in grade school.

Designed by parents, for preschoolers aged 2-5 years.

LetterTracer is an educational tool that helps preschoolers and other pre-reading children trace and paint letter and number shapes. Early exposure to letters and numbers helps prepare children for reading and writing in grade school. LetterTracer’s three-way combination of visual letters, interactivity via tracing, and a spoken voice-over helps children learn and retain the alphabet.

Designed by parents, LetterTracer is generally appropriate for children ages 2 to 5, and was intensively field-tested by our own children! Uppercase and lowercase letters A to Z and the numbers 0 through 9 are shown in three selectable styles:

✔ Flashcard mode: each letter is shown in its regular, filled-in black-on-white rendition. Use this mode as you would flash cards, to practice recognizing letters and numbers with your child.

✔ Tracing mode, for younger children: a hollow outline of each letter is shown. Your child can finger-paint on the screen to trace the letterform.

✔ Freeform mode, for older children: a smaller image of each letter is shown in the upper-left corner; the rest of the screen is available for freehand drawing of the letterform.

Choose from three difference voices; each calls out the name of letters as they appear, to reinforce your child’s learning:

✔ Adult Male
✔ Adult Female
✔ Child

LetterTracer is easy and fun to use for both parents and kids:

✔ In flash card mode, “swipe” back and forth to move between letters easily

✔ When drawing, shake your iPhone or iPod Touch to clear the screen and start over. Kids love this feature!

✔ Choose a larger, more forgiving brush size for younger children, or a smaller, more precise brush size for older children

✔ Choose from 10 painting colors

✔ Choose from three different voices to call out letters and numbers

Tactile practice with letters is an excellent complement to “passive education” from television. LetterTracer is appropriate for roughly the same audience as pre-reading and early-reading skills shows such as Super Why, Sesame Street, Blue’s Clues, WordGirl, Between the Lions and WordWorld.

LetterTracer is excellent ABC practice for native English speakers, but is also appropriate for introducing the English alphabet to ESL students.

4. Rulla – scrolling banner

Create a message that crawls across the iPhone screen like a news ticker. Start with names and work up from there.

Get your message across.

OBS: Free for the first 1000 customers.

Rulla is a large scrolling banner, great for displaying messages over a long distance. Kids and parents love it. Businesses people too. Try beaming the message of love across the dance floor; totally beats SMS. Nifty features include:

– Create messages with symbols you can’t even type with the built-in keyboard (including hearts, smileys, peace symbol, male/female, telephone, and yin yang).
– Roll the banner at five different speeds, from Very slow to Very fast.
– Choose between several contrasting color schemes, including red for light-sensitive environments (like astronomy or photography darkrooms).
– Three sizes for the banner text, from Small to Large.
– Saves your 20 most recent banner texts.

PS: Rulla works great with Chinese and Japanese characters, too. Try the handwriting keyboard yourself to create and display a message in Chinese. It’s really fun!

Video demonstration:


Trivia: “Rulla” is Swedish for “to roll.”

Note: The banner size adapts automatically to the technical limits of iPhone’s graphics subsystem. We hope to work around these limits in future (free) updates.

7. Word Scramble – By Zynga

If you’ve spent any time on Facebook, you’ve probably stumbled across friends playing the word-finding game Scramble. Now, finally, you’ll be able to get your fix without being bombarded with pictures of friends’ babies and invitations to socially-aware rallies! The company behind the super-popular title, Zynga, announced today that it’ll be bringing the game to the iPhone with Scramble Live.

Even if linguistic hunts aren’t up your alley, you have to be interested in the multiplayer portion of the game, which lets you play against iPhone and Facebook users in real-time. It’s a smart way of adding multiplayer, and a method we wish more iPhone devs would take advantage of. A better explanation of the game can be found after the break, or you can throw caution to the wind and pick it up for the limited time price of $2.99.
