MobileViews Podcast 292:

In this podcast, Jon Westfall and I discuss:

  1. Tip: The Chromebook’s Chrome browser can’t cast to a Google Assistant (e.g, Lenovo Smart Display). However, you can cast audio and video using Android apps like Google’s own YouTube and Play Movies & TV (assuming your Chromebook supports using Android apps)
  2. What’s coming in iOS 13 – Rumor roundup (https://www.macrumors.com/roundup/ios-13/) – I’d love to see the reminders app get revamped, it’s way too minimalistic right now!
  3. Jon’s Tech Reminder: Mail Merge + Print to PDF = Custom Reports
  4. Apple Watch App Pick: Healthface – access and record health data, but also get a digital readout within the analog face (not inside, as Apple Does) but over the 12-o’clock position in an arc! $1.99
  5. Is Microsoft’s Outlook.com junk mail filter completely broken?
  6. Washington Post: Sri Lankan government blocks social media and imposes curfew following deadly blasts
