WWDC 2013 Wish List

With WWDC due to start today I thought I'd compile a quick wish list for iOS, OS X and iCloud. 

1. Better sharing on iOS. I'm thinking in particular of the share cards in BB10 and Android. A central area that developers can hook into and allow you to share media from across your device.

2. Widgets. This is an awkward one. I want a more customisable experience but I don't want the Android widget model which I find gets messy. Maybe an expansion of the search screen and better use of notifications?

3. Cross service integration. This seems unlikely but being able to grant calendars and images access to people with Google logins would be a big winner for me.

4. Dropbox. The expansion of iCloud to include a Dropbox style service again. I miss having somewhere to store files that aren't in Pages, Numbers or Keynote.

5. On the Mac I'd love to see better syncing across multiple computers. For example an iPhoto library on my MacBook could be kept easily in sync with one on my desktop.

6. A new version of iWork.

Lets see what happens in a few hours but these would be some very useful additions to an already formidable arsenal of digital services and features.

XBox Live Dashboard Update Tomorrow!

I just logged into XBox Live for the first time in a while today and I've mail informing me that XBox live is going to be offline tomorrow for about 24 hours. This must be the big update that was announced at E3. The blades will soon be gone and we'll have the more modern interface. I liked the blades but I'm very excited about new interface. I'll post about the new look once i get a look at it hopefully on Tuesday.

Flickr For iOS: Could Not Communicate With Server Fix

I've seen multiple reports on Google from people trying to login to Flickr through iOS 7 Settings and receiving the 'Could not communicate with server' login failure. I changed phones last week and received the same error message this morning. The fix that worked for me is:1. Go to Flickr through a desktop browser.  2. Go to the your profile image in the top right and click Settings. 3. In Your Account select the Sharing & Extending tab. 4. Revoke the iOS related Account Links. 5. Login again on your iPhone through Settings and you should now have access.
I hope this helps.
