four quick power tips

01: Natural language Apple has made a big deal about searching in Spotlight with natural language, but you can also do it in Mail’s search box.

From Mailbox-style swiping to trash and mark messages as read, to events and contacts picked out automatically by the app, there’s plenty to keep Mail up there with some of the best thirdparty apps.

apps will get even better

Innovative programming language makes app creation more democratic Swift 2, Apple’s soonto-be open-source programming language announced at this year’s WWDC, is packed with features that produce safe, fast applications for OS X, iOS and watchOS. It’s now easier to write better code, including advanced error handling, availability checking and lots of enhancements to syntax. Because Swift is compatible with Objective-C, developers can use Swift code to implement new features in their apps. When Swift becomes open source, full creative control will be back in the developer’s hand. So what does this mean for the average Mac user? Well, your apps are bound to get better and better.…
