Currency for Apple Watch

24 07 2016

Jeffrey Grossman offers a powerful yet simple currency converter for iOS and watchOS devices. 


Install it on your iPhone, go to the Watch app and activate “Show App on Apple Watch“. I additionally activated “Show in Glances” and put it in the first position for faster access while shopping. On the watch I only have to swipe up to instantly use the converter.

The app is a perfect daily little helper when traveling abroad or find out the right point in time to transfer money.

Perfect?
No, because like any other currency app I know so far it doesn’t offer an alarm setting for currency rates moving out of defined limits.

Apple hit with lawsuit targeting AppleCare+ refurbished devices

“A class action suit filing in California complains that refurbished service stock replacements doled out by Apple in exchange for damaged devices to AppleCare+ service plan holders are not functionally the same as new.

The class action suit, filed Wednesday, takes offense to Apple replacing damaged devices with refurbished devices. Specifically mentioned, the suit is over the clause in the AppleCare Plus contract documents stating that devices replaced under the program are equivalent to new in performance and reliability.”
(Mike Wuerthele, ai)


Apple, you have to follow rules like any other company.

Here’s a serious saying of Niccolo Machiavelli valid also for responsible people in Cupertino:

The wise man does at once what the fool does finally.

Do not fight against commonly accepted customer rights.

It takes some time

Cobbler, stick to your trade.

Apple Car rollout reportedly delayed until 2021, owing to obstacles in Project Titan.

Well, it needs more than just some innovative ideas to bring a car successfully to the market.


So if you’ve got your eye on a new Mustang, Model S, or Porsche go ahead and pull the trigger.

Did you ever use an iPhone in a tropical country like Thailand (ประเทศไทย)?

The country is well-known for its excellent spicy food but also a challenge when it comes to touch screens.

Clammy fingers are like brakes when using gestures like drag, flick or pinch.
That’s definitely the most annoying bug in the design of bio-machines like human beings and there is no update available.

So …

The next iPhone should come with the Digital Crown of the Apple Watch for navigating, scrolling, and accessing the multitasking view.

Posted from 51.06553 7.00345
the location of Minini, my favorite Italian coffee shop after finishing outdoor walks.

The app myTracks turns your iPhone into a fully functional GPS logger. Tracks can be displayed on different maps.

With the Apple Watch App you can start and stop the GPS recording, add waypoints to highlight important locations, and display information about the current GPS recording. This includes the starting time, distance traveled, current, minimum and maximum elevation and the current map.


In addition to the waypoints you can take photos from within myTracks, which are added to the GPS track. GPS tracks are stored only on your iPhone. That means, there is no need to register or Iogin to any network service. Optionally you can sync tracks and photos via iCIoud between all your devices.

Note
The image shows my first tracking with the app including a photo taken with an iPhone 6S Plus. The UI is self-explaining, no need to learn anything before starting your move.

What matters. At a glance.

Some features of Apple’s most personal device are quite useless but …

if you love your grandchild as much as I do the Apple Watch is a vital contribution to the happiness of proud grandfathers. Your favorite movies are accessible everywhere and every time right on your wrist and they always put a smile on your face.

View movies, block nerving people, add workouts and you’ll get lots of life’s little pleasures.

You might say that an Apple Watch with it’s 1.5″ screen is not really comparable with an IMAX experience. Let’s say it with the French writer and philosopher François-Marie Arouet, aka Voltaire:

Illusion is the first of all pleasures.

One last thing …
Please be sympathetic. I’m aware of a minor gap between my skills and those of Steven Spielberg or Quentin Tarantino.
