How To Share your iOS Photos with your Mac Lightning Fast

Written by iHospital. Posted in How To

It’s easy to take and create beautiful photos with applications such as Instagram and the lateset photo app from Facebook, the Facebook Camera for iPhone. It’s not always easy to share these photos with your Mac. Sure you can send them via Messages but it’s not always the most efficient use of your time.

Here is an easy way to share your photos with your Mac lighting fast:

  1. The first step is to make sure you have your Photo Stream switched on in all of your iOS devices as well as your Mac.
  2. Go to your ~Library/Application Support/iLifeAssetManagement/assets/sub folder. Don’t worry, you’re going to see a bunch of odd named files with a bunch of numbers.
  3. Search for image files by typing kind:image in the search section and selecting Sub as the focus of the search.
  4. Save this search as a Smart Folder by clicking on the Save button that is located below the search field. By default, this folder will be saved in the Saved Searches folder, but you can easily check the box that says Add to Sidebar if you’d like to quickly access it later on from the Finder sidebar.
  5. Done! Now whenever you need to quickly see a photo or screenshot that you took on your iOS device, just open this folder and you’ll find it!

How To Check the Efficiency of Your Mac Hard Drive

Written by iHospital. Posted in How To

how to check the efficiency of your mac hard driveHere’s a question for you. How often do you check the efficiency of your Mac hard drive? Not very often right? Today we’re going to take a brief look at how you can check the efficiency of your Mac’s hard drive using Disk Utility. To keep your Mac in optimum running condition, you should do this procedure periodically.

Here are three simple steps to check the efficiency of your Mac hard drive:

  • Turn on your Mac and launch Disk Utility which can be found within the Utilities folder inside the main Applications folder. Tip: you can quickly launch the Utilities folder from Finder by clicking Command-Shift-U, and you can do the same with Applications by clicking Command-Shift-A
  • From the left side menu, select Mac hard drive, and click on the First Aid tab
  • Select Verify Disk in the right corner and let it run

This is where the fun begins. Your window will begin displaying all sorts of color-coded messages about the drive’s well being. Messages displayed in black indicate fine working order. Accordingly, messages displayed in red alert you that something is wrong. Most users will see a final message saying “The partition map appears to be OK” which indicates no errors.

Phone5.com Domain Obtained by Apple

Written by iHospital. Posted in Apple News

We recently wrote about 3 reasons why the next iPhone will be called the iPhone 5, and we’re here to share reason number four! Earlier this month, the folks at Apple filed a claim with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) to obtain ownership of the iPhone5.com domian.  Up until now, iPhone5.com was home to a small, independent forum.  iPhone 5

According to The Next Web, the case has ended which means that the dispute over iPhone5.com has been resolved without WIPO having to get involved. As it currently stands the domain is being held by brand protection firm Corporation Service Company, most likely on behalf of Apple.  The domain currently shows a blank page.  We think they should add a snazzy picture of what the iPhone 5 might look like!

Mac App Store Welcomes Apps that Use Global Hotkeys

Written by iHospital. Posted in Apple News

Application creators all over the world are breathing a big sigh of relief. Why you ask? Well, reports came out early Thursday morning suggesting that Apple would disallow Mac App stores that enabled keyboard “hotkey” shortcuts. The popular Apple blog, Macworld, confirmed that this was in fact a rumor and these apps are definitely allowed within Apple’s App store.

All of this hype came about because starting June 1, 2012, all apps that are submitted to the Mac App Store need to include Apple’s sandboxing requirements. For those of you that wonder what sandboxing means, here’s a little breakdown. Sandboxing is a term that refers to limiting what functionality and data a certain app can access for a user’s protection and security. Another popular blog called TUAW suggested that as part of these updates, Apple would shun new apps with global hotkeys too.
