Improve Apple Services with AirPort Base Stations

You can make iChat file transfers, iDisk, and Back to My Mac work better by turning on a setting with Apple AirPort base stations released starting in 2003. Launch AirPort Utility, select your base station, click Manual Setup, choose the Internet view, and click the NAT tab. Check the Enable NAT Port Mapping Protocol (NAT-PMP) box, and click Update. NAT-PMP lets your Mac OS X computer give Apple information to connect back into a network that's otherwise unreachable from the rest of the Internet. This speeds updates and makes connections work better for services run by Apple.

Hindsight Labs LLC has released Paprika 2.0.3, a small update that fixes the importing of .paprikarecipe files in the recipe manager (see “FunBITS: Paprika Recipe Manager for iPhone, iPad, and Mac,” 14 March 2014). The update also now correctly stores the name setting for an export calendar, makes tweaks to the MMF importer, improves the capability of dragging a subcategory out of its parent category to the top level, and fixes a printing issue when viewing a recipe through the meal planner. ($19.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 3.5 MB, 10.8+)
