Type an em-dash on an iPhone

Typography and punctuation geeks rejoice! It's easy to type an em-dash on the iPhone's or iPod touch's virtual keyboard. To do so, tap the .?123 key to switch to the numeric keypad. Then touch and hold on the Hyphen key to reveal a pop-up strip showing an em-dash. Slide to the em-dash and release your finger.

Note that this basic trick works with many other keys on the virtual keyboard.

Send Article to a Friend

Telestream has released version 4.5 of its ScreenFlow screencast recording app with a number of improvements and a lengthy list of fixes. The update expands support for publishing screencasts directly to Dropbox and Google Drive as well as sharing them to Facebook, and the Upload Manager now uploads videos in the background. Other changes include the capability to manage transitions and mark favorites, an added search field to the Video & Audio filter popover, a fix for a bug that caused edits to be lost on OS X 10.9 Mavericks, and the added capability to double-click a source to send it to the timeline when in the media library list mode. ScreenFlow 4.5 now requires 10.7 Lion or later. For a complete rundown of the new features, download the PDF release notes from Telestream’s support page. Note that as of this writing, the Mac App Store version of ScreenFlow sits at version 4.0.4. ($99 new from the Telestream Web site or $99.99 from the Mac App Store, 33.8 MB)
