EasyBlog for iPhone (Blogger/Blogspot)

Image
Google recently removed the Blogger app from the iOS App Store, and rightfully so. The Blogger app had not been updated in a really long time. Enter EasyBlog for iPhone. EasyBlog is a Blogger/Blogspot application for the iPhone that will allow you to easily manage your Blogger content; compose a draft, write a new post, make an edit to a post already published. This application is a version 1.0, so it is very limited. Currently you cannot add images or embed a YouTube video; but, you can write a post and add a URL link, make bulleted list, add keywords to a post, publish a new post, and revert a published post back to a draft. The interface is modern and beautiful, and even though the app has a few shortcomings or lacking a few features, EasyBlog still allows you add content to your Blogger website from your phone while on the go. Plus, it is free to download, there are no in-app purchases or ads in the app, currently. Download: EasyBlog for Blogger/Blogspot.

Six Colors of Apple (Watch Band)

Image
That's what's up! Super dope band, I just don't feel for the price that I would get enough usage out of it. I would wear it, just not every single day!

UPDATE:
"Other than showing the brilliant colours we're doing for the Apple Watch, as the only brand offering premium, hard anodized aluminum, we're donating $20 for each sale of this Ligero model to Amnesty International to help their fight against discrimination."

FCP X Basics For Beginners - Basic Editing (part 2)

Image
This video is the very basics of editing in FCP X; how to add text, how to slice your clips, how to add generators, etc.

Hopefully I did an okay job with this video, I feel like I was rambling on; but, that is what happens when you talk for 20 minutes straight. I tried to touch on the important aspects of editing in FCP X.

***Note; everybody has a different style of editing, the way I edit might be different than someone else. Neither way is wrong, I feel you should edit the way that you are comfortable with editing. I have used Final Cut Pro since FCP 7, for about 10 years. While a lot has changed, one thing that hasn't is my habit for how I edit. ***

How to delete Chrome apps on a Mac

Image
One of the most annoying things about using Google Chrome is that Chrome will install a bunch of quick-launch apps on your machine, without asking you if you want them! I guess that is the price of using a free browser, along with giving away all your personal browsing data; but, that is a topic for another day…

How to Delete:
Open the Home folder on your Mac.Now open the Applications folder.Inside the Applications folder you will find all the app icons, you can either click and drag them to your Trash bin, or you can right-click on them and select Move to Trash.After you have moved them to the Trash bin, right-click on your Trash bin, and select Empty Trash.
This is what your Home folder looks like (yours will have a different name):


This is what the Google Chrome Apps folder will look like: 


This is what the Google Chrome apps look like that you will want to delete:

A new Apple Watch and Apple Watch Bands

Image
One of my favorite aspects of the Apple Watch is the easily replaceable bands for the Apple Watch. I have quite a few different bands, all varying in colors and styles. I currently have the stainless steel Apple Watch (series 0), or the original Apple Watch. While I don’t think I really need to update the Watch, as watchOS 3 has made my Apple Watch almost like a new device; I really do want the porcelain Apple Watch. I think the white porcelain Apple Watch Edition is beautiful.

If Apple announces a new Series 3 (4th generation) Apple Watch at WWDC, and there is a porcelain version available, that might be my next big purchase from Apple.

Here are the current bands that I own:







I have my eye on one of the new Nike bands, as well as this Spring edition band that Apple just launched. Hopefully if Apple does announce a new Watch at WWDC or even in the fall, that the new Watch will work with the bands from the older Apple Watches.
