TidBITS#1248/10-Nov-2014

If your email address is managed by Apple, AOL, or Yahoo, this may be the first issue of TidBITS you’ve received in a while — sorry! Those services were incorrectly blocking us as spam, and Adam Engst explains what he’s done to address the current situation. Microsoft has now brought Office to the iPhone, and opened up more free features for both iPad and iPhone users. Julio Ojeda-Zapata looks at what’s new in the mobile Office apps, and what’s coming down the pike. In a pair of security-related articles, Josh Centers reviews the Authy two-factor authentication app, and Rich Mogull explains why Apple’s biggest security challenge is… you. Finally, Michael Cohen answers a frequent reader question: can iCloud Drive take the place of Dropbox? Notable software releases this week include BBEdit 11.0.1, CrashPlan 3.6.4, Quicken 2015 for Mac 2.2, Pixelmator 3.3, and ReadKit 2.4.2.
