@B_Wagoner @lisettecasey We use Lightspeed to filter. Not digging their browser. We’re keeping Safari and filtering our network. #ipadchat

Apple’s iCloud Invading Classrooms Soon

WWDC Apple Keynote announced a new feature today: iCloud support built into the iOS 5 software update for all iOS device (iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad). The iCloud also integrates with existing iTunes desktop software on both Mac and PC platforms. Jonathan Seff at Macworld goes into details on the new  service:

Auto Backup

  • Once a day, iCloud will back up a lot of a user’s important content to the cloud over Wi-Fi. If you ever get a new phone, Apple said, type in your Apple ID and password and everything will be loaded on that phone automatically.
  • It will back up purchased music, apps, and books, your Camera Roll (photos and videos), device settings, and app data.

New Apps

  • Documents in the Cloud uploads Pages, Numbers, and Keynote documents to the cloud for syncing.
  • Photo Stream lets you take photos on any device and uploads them to sync with your other devices (for example, your iPhone shots appear on your iPad). Photo Stream also works with iPhoto on Mac, and supports the Apple TV as well. 
  • iTunes in the Cloud. For songs you’ve already purchased from the iTunes Store, there’s a Purchased button that shows your entire purchase history of songs (purchased on any device). You can view by all songs, recent songs, or by artist. You can then download any song or album with the touch of a button.
  • “This is the first time we’ve seen this in the music industry,” said Jobs. “No charge for multiple downloads on many devices.”

iTunes Match

  • Apple has come up with iTunes Match, a $25-a-year service that scans your iTunes library and tries to match it with the 18 million songs that Apple sells. For the songs that are in the iTunes Store, you get instant access, and Apple will even upgrade them to its standard 256-kbps AAC format. For those songs that Apple can’t identify, you can upload them manually

Specs and Availability 

  • Each user gets 5GB of free storage for mail, documents, and backup. Fortunately, purchased music, apps, books, and Photo Stream photos don’t count against that total.
  • iTunes Match costs $25 a year for unlimited storage.
  • iCloud will ship at the same time as iOS 5 in the fall, although developers can download a beta version now.

Apple Builds Twitter Into iOS 5

Apple announced built-in Twitter support in the upcoming iOS 5 release this fall. This support will enable easy tweeting, mentioning, retweeting, and sharing from your iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad. Donald Melanson from Engadget elaborates: 

Apple’s just announced that it’s bringing deep Twitter integration to all of its iOS-based devices, and to many of its own apps, including Camera, Photos, Safari and Maps. That integration also, of course, extends to Contacts, where you’ll be able to link your contacts to their Twitter handle and keep their information updated accordingly, much like Android. You’ll also only have to sign into Twitter once (in Settings), and then simply share those credentials with any app that requests them.

For more information, read the source here.


        

Classroom iOS Devices Go ‘PC-Free’ This Fall!

WWDC Apple Keynote announced a new feature today: ’PC-Free’ support built into the iOS 5 software update for all iOS device (iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad). Finally, you can manage your classroom iOS devices with ease as Apple integrates over-the-air syncing and also over-the-air OS updates. Brian Heater at Engadget summarizes the announcement: 

Love your iPhone, but hate all of the PC-based tethering it entails? Apple has some good news: the company is taking its “post-PC” stance a step further, letting you activate your smartphone straight out of the box without syncing it to a computer. Also big news is the addition of over-the-air updates, which will let you receive changes without plugging the handset in. And some big news for music fans: users will be able to sync their iTunes libraries over WiFi connections with the update.
