Rogue Amoeba has released Fission 2.2.1 with a fix for incompatible ALAC files generated by non-Apple applications (such as doubleTwist’s AirPlay Recorder). The audio editor also improves the way that ringtones are saved for better compatibility, though Mac App Store users may experience duplicate files depending on iTunes import preferences. Rogue Amoeba now ensures that all of its apps offer the same bit rate options for consistency. Fission also does away with unnecessary gaps at the beginning of files when exporting FLAC or ALAC files and can now open GSM, MS IMA, QT IMA, and CAF formats. ($32 new from Rogue Amoeba with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 14.5 MB, release notes, 10.7+)
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.
