Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite icon

Update: ‘Fixing Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite App Crashes’ also applies to Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan and macOS 10.12 Sierra!
Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite iconFixing Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite app crashes works in the same way as it does for Notes app crashes and Exchange mail syncing bugs: The Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite app crashes (e.g. “Mail quit unexpectedly“) are fixed by deleting cashes of the dedicated app library containers. For example, the App Store app and Dropbox app reportedly crashes after upgrading to Yosemite (Kudos to Apolonious!). Mail app and Skype crashes are resolved as well.

Continuity Keypad icon

Continuity Keypad iconContinuity Keypad is a dialer to easily make handoff iPhone calls on your Mac. Continuity Keypad requires Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite because it uses Apple’s new Continuity feature coming with the new iOS 8 and Yosemite. By using Continuity, you can make and receive phone calls on those devices as long as your iPhone running iOS 8 is on the same Wi-Fi network. Incoming calls show the caller’s name, number, and profile picture. However, a dialer keypad is missing in Yosemite. You need to tap or click a phone number in Contacts, Calendar, or Safari. Continuity Keypad fills this lack.

This is the proof to me that it was an Apple issue and not a WLAN router one.

Facetime iconHi folks, on May 17th I reported about connection problems of iMessage and facetime. In the mean time my friend was at my home with her iPad and we checked it out: factime and iMessage was working without any problem with my WiFi!

For me it is the proof that the source of that problem must have something to do with a specific WiFi and its settings in conjunction with iMessage and facetime.

20120517-091849.jpgHi folks, last week I tested iMessage and Facetime on two different iPads in my home’s WiFi and it worked perfectly, but when I tried the same to contact a friend of mine it failed. I thought that it was my friend’s personal problem because she is not so fit with iOS as I am…
