Having trouble with the date and time picker in iOS 7’s Clock app? It’s not you — the “hit areas” are indeed smaller, making it harder to use. Developer Sean Woodhouse deconstructs the picker in this blog post, comparing it to the iOS 6 version that may be clunkier, but is kinder to the fingers.follow link
Add Slides to Pear Note from Other Applications
If you have some slides in any application, and you'd like to add them to a Pear Note document, there's no need to save them out and then import them into Pear Note. Instead, you can send them directly to Pear Note through a PDF service. For instance, if you had slides in Keynote, just:
- Select Print within Keynote.
- Click the PDF button.
- Select Send PDF to Pear Note.
This can also be used to import other document types into Pear Note to take notes on them as well.

Deconstructing the iOS 7 Date Picker
I could take or leave the flatter appearance of the app (I happen to be an engineer and really LIKED the old app's "whirling tumbler" metaphor), but making it noticeably harder to view and operate the design's elements is a somewhat curious design choice. Were there legions of users screaming "give us smaller targets to hit and make the text harder to see while we're doing it"?
I'm philosophical, though. I mostly appreciate the improvements in IOS 7. Apple set the bar so high for itself with the original look and feel of the iPhone interface that improvements -- always subjective -- are hard to come by!
Thanks for the article. It is nice to know it wasn't just me bothered by this peculiarity. Perhaps refinements to the interface will eventually be made.
