Is Your Dropbox Up-to-date?

Now that I have so much more room on Dropbox, I decided I was going to set up all my Scrivener projects to sync with my iPad so I can work on them whenever and wherever. There was just one problem . . . nothing was synching. I did a little poking around and discovered that my Dropbox manager app was way out of date. Downloading and installing the latest version fixed everything.

How do you know what version of Dropbox you’re running? On the Mac, hover over the Dropbox icon in the menu bar and a popup message shows the current version. The latest version is available from Dropbox’s downloads page.

WordPress 4.0 Released


Check for plugin updates and install them, then backup your database before you install the upgrade.

Whole Lotta Updating Going On

It seems like every time I turn around there’s another set of updates to install. With WordPress 4.0, Mac OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 all due to be released soon, app and plugin developers have been busy getting their software ready for them.

Apple has an event scheduled for Tuesday, September 9th. It’s probably announcing the iPhone 6, but I’m hoping it’s also the day iOS 8 is released. Yosemite is coming “this fall” and I hope that means it’s sooner rather than later. I’m really looking forward to iCloud Drive although I’m already taking advantage of Dropbox’s space increase and I can’t wait to see how Messages, Face Time and phone calls can be picked up on my Mac as well as my iPhone.

It’s going to be an interesting couple of months.
