See All Your Books in iBooks

The iBooks app for iOS lets you assign your books to different collections, but does not have any obvious way for you to see all of your books, regardless of the collection you have put them in. There is, however, a workaround that can show you just about all of your books at once: reveal the search field at the top of any collection in iBooks and type a single space into that field.

With this search, iBooks lists all of the books that have a space either in the title of the book or in the author's name. Other than the rare book that has a one-word title and a single-name author, you end up with a list of all of your books.

Send Article to a Friend

Panic has released version 2.0.2 of its Coda Web site development tool with a list of fixes and improvements that’s Dostoyevskian in its length. Among the highlights, the update “significantly” improves the speed and behavior of its syntax highlighter, adds a Jump to Style contextual menu item in Preview, makes it easier to search open folders using Find in File, and ensures that Coda’s spell checker works more reliably. Additionally, the version available from the Mac App Store can now unlock the Direct version via a new Unlock Coda menu item (though the Mac App Store hasn’t yet caught up to version 2.0.2 as of this writing). For a complete rundown of the over 100 changes in Coda 2.0.2, be sure to peruse the release notes. ($99 new, $75 upgrade from 1.0, free update, 48.8 MB)
