Best of iMore: Inclusivity, iTunes Extras, iOS 8

Filed in heightened

Every week at iMore we publish more breaking news, in-depth reviews, helpful how-tos, and editorial views than you can shake an apple at. While we’re waiting for the week that will be to begin, here’s a look back at the week that was, and at the very best iPhone, iPad, Mac, app, and accessory coverage we brought you! This week iTunes Extras finally arrived on Apple TV, we kept up with explaining iOS 8, and we stepped up our game on inclusivity and accessibility. Here’s everything you don’t want to miss!



  • iMore show 410: Extra accessible metal: Rene, Peter, and Derek Kessler talk all about iTunes Extras on Apple TV, iPhone and iPod touch screen sizes, Apple A8 processors, Metal on OS X, and enforcing accessibility.
  • Iterate 71: Joe Cieplinski of Bombing Brain: Joe Cieplinsk of Bombing Brain and Release Notes joins Marc, Seth, and Rene to talk about Teleprompt+ 3 for iOS and Mac, Setlist, charging premium prices, adaptable layout in iOS 8, and more!
  • Review 16: Real Genius: Don, Matt, Guy, and Rene visit Pacific Tech to talk Real Genius. While they don’t hammer any six inch-spikes, they do get into Martha Coolidge’s directing, Val Kilmer’s acting, and how the idea of the military exploiting science back in 1983 plays in 2013. This one’s for Jason!
  • The TV Show 8: Doctor genocide: Dave and Rene talk about 24 and whiplash antagonists, HBO and Damon Lindelof’s Leftovers, and catch up on Doctor Who starting with Christopher Eccleston and Series 1. (Now with time code!)

iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite: Explained

  • Inter-app photo and video editing in iOS 8: Explained: Photo extensions are part of iOS 8′s new Extensibility feature, one of the biggest platform advances since the launch of the App Store. With Photo — and video — extensions, we get the ability to access filters and effects from any app right inside Apple’s Photos and Camera apps. So, how does inter-app photo and video editing work?
  • Custom keyboards in iOS 8: Explained: Custom keyboard extensions, part of iOS 8′s new Extensibility feature, allow developers to almost completely replace the default, system-wide iOS keyboard with ones of their own devising. (That’s in addition to Apple’s own, new QuickType predictive keyboard.) Not only does that include favorites from other platforms, like Swype or SwiftKey, but it opens the door to ones that offer new languages, novel input methods, special options, and more. So, how do the new custom keyboard extensions work?
  • Family Sharing on iOS 8: Explained: Phones, iPod touches, iPads everywhere — everyone in the family has devices and uses them for everything. One of iOS 8′s key improvements is more convenient family sharing. This is what it is and how it works.
  • Action extensions in OS X Yosemite: Explained: OS X’s Yosemite’s new Markup tool is an example of a new class of technology called Action extensions. Action extensions promise to save you time and make you more productive with the software you’re already using.



How to

  • Learn a new language with Duolingo on your iPhone or iPad: How we communicate and how we think are limited only by our command of language, beautiful, lyrical, contextual, nuanced, delicious language. And apps like Duolingo make it easier than ever to learn a new language, to do it from your deck or poolside, from your living room or hotel room, and right on your iPhone and iPad
  • How to watch iTunes Extras on your Apple TV: iTunes Extras are like DVD to Blu-ray movies extras that play right inside iTunes on the Mac or Windows, and on your Apple TV. They can include director’s commentary, deleted scenes, bonus scenes, making-of documentaries, and other features. Not every movie has iTunes Extras, but for those that do, here’s how to find and enjoy them!
  • Having issues skipping, stopping, and playing music tracks in your car over Bluetooth? Here’s the fix!: Unfortunately some iPhone users have reported issues with these functions under iOS 7. Either skipping, pausing, and playing don’t work with car controls or there is a serious lag. Regardless what issue you’re experiencing, the good news is that there’s an easy fix!
  • How to use Siri for iPhone and iPad: The ultimate guide: Siri is the name of Apple’s personal digital assistant. It’s basically voice control that talks back to you, that understands relationships and context, and with a personality straight out of Pixar. Ask Siri questions, or ask Siri to do things for you, just like you would ask a real assistant, and Siri will help keep you connected, informed, in the right place, and on time.

Get the D&D Basic Rules for free now!

Filed in heightened

A few days ago Wizards of the Coast made the D&D Basic Rules available as a free download in PDF format. For anyone who ever played Dungeons & Dragons in any of its incarnations, from Gary Gygax to TSR to now, from Greyhawk to Dragonlance to Forgotten Realms, to — well, you get the idea — the potential fun to be had is obvious. Best of all, you can download the straight into Apple’s iBooks app if you’d like, or any other PDF-friendly app you might have installed on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

The Basic Rules for Dungeons & Dragons is a PDF (over 100 pages, in fact) that covers the core of the game. It runs from levels 1 to 20 and covers the cleric, fighter, rogue, and wizard, presenting what we view as the essential subclass for each. It also provides the dwarf, elf, halfling, and human as race options; in addition, the rules contain 120 spells, 5 backgrounds, and character sheets.

How to add the D&D PDF to iBooks

If you want to keep your free copy of the Dungeons & Dragons basic rules safe, you can easily store it in iBooks.

  1. Go to Wizards of the Coast.
  2. Tap on the regular or print version of the PDF.
  3. Tap someone on the screen to show the Open In… controls.
  4. Tap on Open in iBooks.

If you’d rather use a different PDF app, just tap on Open In… and select the app from the list.

Give the D&D Basic Rules a look and let me know what you think of them!
