WhatsApp icon

WhatsApp iconWhatsApp on iPad without jailbreak is easily installed on iOS 7 and iOS 8 (iPod touch included) using the free iFunBox (Windows and Mac versions available). I tried also DiskAid, but it didn’t worked. However, there is a known issue with WhatsApp on iOS 8 beta: Some contacts or groups force WhatsApp on iOS 8 beta to crash.  This is a general problem of WhatsApp on iOS 8 and has nothing to do with this tweak.

iBooks for Mac logoiBooks not syncing PDF files and ePub books not purchased in the iBooks store is a big problem for many people. In this tutorial I will show you to how iBooks is working and syncing on Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks and iOS 7 (Update: Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, OS X 10.11 El Capitan, iOS 8 and iOS 9 included) and how to fix the iBooks not syncing issue. iBooks for Mac was introduced with Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks and brings the existing features of iBooks on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to any Mac with OS X Mavericks installed. iBooks for Mac is comparable to iPhoto for Mac meaning iBooks for Mac is the syncing center for PDF files and ePub books not purchased in the iBooks store. iBooks and iBooks collections are synced via iCloud, but PDF files and ePub books are not!

iTunes_11_iconI have already posted how to fix iTunes 11.1.4 Windows installation crashes on Windows Vista, XP, 7, 8 And 8.1. Now Apple reacted and released a detailed support document ‘iTunes 11.1.4 for Windows: Unable to install or open‘. Like I do, Apple recommends to make a complete de-installation and re-install iTunes 11.1.4 with administrator privileges. Apple states that this installation problem can occur if the iTunes installer has insufficient privileges to cleanly update iTunes. However, if you do not succeed in iTunes 11.1.4 Windows installations anyway, I suggest to check one of the 4 general fixes I collected some months ago.

Update: Fixing iTunes 11.1.4 Windows Installations: Apple Support Document released
iTunes_11_iconIf you can’t install Apple’s latest iTunes 11.1.4 update (download) because iTunes installation fails and causes crashes, you can fix this problem by deleting all corresponding iTunes files and programs and re-install it. It seems that mainly Windows 7 (beside Vista and XP) is affected, not Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. I can confirm the later, I was able to install iTunes 11.1.4 on my Acer Aspire 1810T running on Windows 8.1 Pro without any issues.

Cloud Commander icon

Cloud Commander iconMy review on Cloud Commander 3.6.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch comes to the result that Cloud Commander is the best file manager and FTP manager for my private cloud / iCloud, cloud services, FTP (NAS), SMB (Windows, Mac, Time Capsule) I’ve ever tested. Additional, you can get Cloud Commander for Mac and Cloud Commander SkyDrive Edition for Mac (supports SkyDrive and SkyDrive Pro / Sharepoint 2013).
