How to Make an iPhone Screenshot

Want to take a screenshot of something on your iPhone or iPod touch? Press the Home button and Power button briefly at the same time, and an image of your screen will be saved to the Photos app (and will sync with iPhoto when you next connect). Don't hold the buttons too long or your device will either power down or reboot.

ReadKit 2.4

Send Article to a Friend

Webin has released ReadKit 2.4, a major update to the RSS client and read-later app with improvements to keyboard navigation and the introduction of a new sharing service. With version 2.4, most keyboard shortcuts can be customized under the Shortcuts tab of Preferences (this Webin blog post offers an explanation of the new shortcuts). ReadKit also adds support for the Buffer sharing service, which enables you to share links to your social media connections immediately or schedule them to appear throughout the day or week. The update also adds the capability to highlight code blocks, brings more granular preference settings on a per-account basis, adds a customizable sharing toolbar, improves sync speed of the built-in RSS engine, and improves compatibility with OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Unfortunately, ReadKit 2.4 drops support for 10.7 Lion. ($6.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 4.0 MB)
