Fill in Gaps in Pear Note

If you ever find yourself zoning out during a meeting or class, only later to realize that you forgot to take notes for 20 minutes, Pear Note makes it easy to fill in those gaps. To do so:

  1. Open your Pear Note document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click on the last text you did type to jump to that point in the recording.
  4. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
  5. Take notes on the part you missed.

Your new notes will be synced to the recording just as if you'd taken them live with the rest of your notes.

Skype 2.0.1 Brings Background Calls to iOS

Send Article to a Friend

The latest version of Skype for iOS brings several long-awaited features, including background call continuation in iOS 4, where an in-progress call will continue to work even when you switch away from the Skype app. Version 2.0.1 is free, like its predecessors.


The revision also includes improved voice quality, and notifications for incoming calls when the Skype app isn't the active foreground program. This latter feature, coupled with the background call continuation, could make the Skype iPhone app into a serious competitor for standard phone calls.


Skype said in a blog post that it had dropped its plan to start charging a fee for each Skype-to-Skype call placed over 3G. When the company first announced it would set a price on internal network mobile VoIP calls, which is unprecedented across the rest of its services, it offered no explanation for why it would need to levy a fee, since the user was responsible for 3G data.

 

New for iOS 8: TextExpander 3 with custom keyboard.
Set up short abbreviations which expand to larger bits of text,
such as "Tx" for "TextExpander". With the new custom keyboard,
you can expand abbreviations in any app, including Safari and
Mail. <http://smle.us/tetouch3-tb>
