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.

Evernote 5.0.5

Send Article to a Friend

Updated to version 5.0.5, Evernote for Mac now enables you to sync shortcuts across multiple Macs (other platforms will get the shortcuts feature in future updates). Other new features in the information management service’s software include the capability to focus searches so they exclude shared notes, the use of AppleScript to create checkboxes in the ENML markup language, and the capability to select multiple tags in the sidebar by Command-clicking. The update also improves sync performance for large accounts, prints PDFs more reliably, improves Korean image indexing, fixes sidebar visual glitches in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, and improves handling of tags in AppleScript. Free from the Mac App Store, 29.1 MB)
