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.

1Password 4.0.9

Send Article to a Friend

AgileBits has released 1Password 4.0.8 with a handy new method of adding or updating software licenses — just drag and drop an app onto the 1Password dock icon. The update also enables you to import Windows-based .1pif files by double-clicking them in the Finder, prompts (via 1Password mini) if the database file is damaged and the latest backup needs to be restored, and improves syncing performance. Shortly after the release of version 4.0.8, AgileBits released 1Password 4.0.9 with fixes for several instances of crashes, including when attempting to edit an item in OS X 10.9 Mavericks and when trying to simultaneously edit and change the current vault. As of this writing, the Mac App Store version remains stalled at version 4.0.8. ($49.99 new, free update, 35.5 MB, release notes)

Check out the Take Control ebooks that expand on the topic in this article:

I tried dragging application icons onto 1Password's icon to add licenses. 1Password did generate a Software License entry for each application, but it did not automatically grab the license # from the dragged apps. You still have to add the license manually.
