Samsung Gear S2 wearable getting limited iPhone compatibility

In an unprecedented move, it seems Samsung is acquiescing to customer feedback and making their Gear S2 wearable smartwatch comaptible with rival Apple's iPhone. 

The company rolled out an iOS beta program to to let the Tizen OS powered Samsung smartphone work with iPhones. Samsung has often dialed back functionality of its devices on non Samsung Galaxy devices and this move, while surprising, is absolutely necessary for the company's products to be taken seriously by curious new customers.

As far as these things go, iOS users should not expect full compatibility as functionality from the Samsung Gear S2 will likely be limited to notifications since there's no way to route app information from the iPhone to the gear. Curious Gear S2 owners can join by visiting the beta page. The program is running through to September 19. iPhone owners will need their smartphone to be running iOS 8.4 or later to take part in the program.



Barbra Streisand gets Siri to correctly pronounce her name, hints at possible release of new iOS update

Review: Ulysses for macOS and iOS

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

Ulysses gets what matters most to writers. Getting stats like word count and character information is available with one button click. Exporting to popular document formats like .doc and .docx is readily available. 

There's no perfect writing application for all types of writers. I've made a living the past 20 years on Microsoft Word on the Mac and on the PC. At its core, Word is the most universal writing tool there is, but even after decades of use, I can't say I've memorized 80 per cent of its functions.

There's been a steady list of writing apps that have tried to get us back to the purity of writing. Much like staring at a blank sheet of paper on a typewriter, the idea is to remove the clutter and allow the writer to simply focus on writing.
