TidBITS#1203/16-Dec-2013

Happy holidays from TidBITS as we enter our annual hiatus; we’ll be back with our next email issue on 6 January 2014. We’re leaving you with plenty to read, between this solid issue, the second edition of Joe Kissell’s best-selling “Take Control of iCloud,” and the latest streamed chapter of Josh Centers’s “Take Control of Apple TV” (containing everything you need to know about audio on the Apple TV). In the news, Josh rounds up the latest updates in the NSA spying saga and looks at the newest channel additions to the Apple TV, and he and Adam Engst pass on the details about improvements in the just-released OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 Update. Matt Neuburg returns with his annual look at what the changes in iOS 7 mean for developers (and thus users), Michael Cohen reviews Belkin’s QODE Ultimate Keyboard Case for iPad Air, Chris Armstrong investigates Receiptmate for iPhone, and Geoff Duncan takes over FunBITS for a jam session with the ear-training app Capo 3 for Mac. Notable software releases this week include iFlicks 2.0.1, Firefox 26, VLC Media Player 2.1.2, PopChar X 6.4, and TextExpander 4.2.
