Google Gmail LogoApple released Mavericks Mac OS X 10.9.2 update (security release note) on February 25, 2014. Beside other several improvements and additional features like making and receiving FaceTime audio calls, it mainly should enhance the performance of the native OS X mail app.

Update: Windows Phone 8.1: Setting Up iCloud Email, Calendars And Contacts
Windows Phone logoSome people like me want to sync the Windows Phone 8 Calendar with Mac iCal. There are two options for Syncing: On the one hand, you can sync the calendars using CalDAV via a Google account both on your Windows Phone 8 (does not work for Windows Phone 7 because CalDAV is not supported there) and on your Mac. On the other hand, you can do it via a iCloud calendar subscription using a Outlook.com account (or Windows Live account). The later one is ‘read only’ on your Windows Phone 8 meaning you cannot change or add events on your Windows Phone 8 (Windows Phone 7 is supported).

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).

PhotoSync App LogoAs you may know, I really like PhotoSync App, especially, because of the high-speed photo file transfer and the excellent and free Windows PC (running on Windows 8) and Mac (running on OS X 10.8.3 Mountain Lion) companions. Today PhotoSync 2.0 for iPhone and iPad (universal app) was released. I intensively tested the new version: It’s a big step ahead!

Google Voice Logo

Google Voice LogoThe free Google Voice service lets you can send text messages and place calls to regular phone numbers from the computer or your mobile phone. In order to activate Google Voice to get your Google Voice number you need to be located in the United States (this means your computer must have a U.S. IP Address) and you must also have a local US phone number.

Google Voice LogoIf you want to use Google Voice, especially outside US, you need to have a local US Phone number. This tutorial describes how to get your own charge-free US phone number from anywhere in the world without spending any money. Once you have an US local phone number, your friends and relatives in the US will be able to dial you from their landline or regular cell phones without paying international rates. The calls can be forwarded to your mobile phone, e.g. your iPhone via Google Voice App, or desktop based VoIP phones.

Living outside the USA? And you need to download some apps, especially free ones, which are only available in the US App Store? No problem, just get your US iTunes / App Store account within some seconds! There is no need to have an US credit card! I created my alternate US iTunes / App Store account to get the free Google Voice App on my iPhone which is sole available in the US App store. For example, I am using Google Voice to forward voicemails and SMS messages to my COOKOO watch and wanted to get Google voicemails and SMS Messages on my iPhone or to make phone calls via Google Voice from my iPhone.
