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.

Mailplane 3.0.1

Send Article to a Friend

Uncomplex has released Mailplane 3.0.1, a maintenance release to the Gmail-specific mail client that revises keyboard shortcuts for opening mail due to a change that enables shortcuts to work in reply mode. The previous Mail > Open option has been revised to Mail > Open Conversation (Command-]), while Mail > Open In New Window has been added (Command-O). The update also lets you hide the tab bar, fixes an AppleScript issue with paragraphs in the mail body, squashes a bug with downloaded attachments containing special characters in their file names, and ensures that opening a file dialog no longer crashes the app in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. ($24.95 new, free update, 20-percent-off upgrade discount or free upgrades for purchases after 1 October 2012, 3.6 MB, release notes)
