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.

Running with Crayons has released Alfred 2.1, updating the keyboard-driven launcher with compatibility for OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The release fixes inline dictionary definitions in Mavericks, and adds the System/Library/CoreServices/Applications directory to the default search scope. For those who purchase the feature-enhanced Alfred Powerpack, Alfred 2.1 improves integration with the latest version of iTunes (making the mini player aware of iTunes Radio), and improves syncing compatibility with Dropbox. (Free, £15 for Powerpack, 2.8 MB, release notes)
