Digital Sharing for Apple Users: A Take Control Crash Course by Joe Kissell

Learn the best ways to share your data, documents, and devices!

Beyond what's new in Yosemite or iOS 8 is the larger problem facing most of us--how to work effectively in today's ecosystem of devices, servers, and collaborators. Frankly, sharing with other people and devices is messy, because everyone wants something different. That's why this may be our most important book of the year, and why we are so grateful to Joe Kissell for taking on the challenge of describing how to share nearly everything you can think of in nearly every imaginable situation.

The pre-reqs for this course include either an iOS device running iOS 8 or a Mac running 10.10 Yosemite, or both.

Here are just a few of the gems in this book:

  • How iCloud Photo Sharing and My Photo Stream are entirely different
  • How to share photos fleetingly, privately, permanently, or with your fridge
  • The best ways to sync a project's worth of files with others
  • Services to provide ubiquitous access to your own files across devices
  • Quick ways to make a file available for download by anyone
  • How to share calendars with others, whether or not they use iCloud
  • A tutorial on enabling Family Sharing
  • Tweaky workarounds for contact sharing, which is surprisingly difficult
  • How to rip a DVD to your MacBook Air using an older Mac's SuperDrive
  • How to turn your iPhone or Mac into a Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Ways of watching your uncle work remotely, as you help him with iTunes
  • Approaches to syncing Web browser bookmarks and tabs with multiple devices
  • How to securely share a collection of passwords with someone else

The list of essential but often frustrating tasks goes on and on, and the solutions go way beyond what Apple offers, so the book does too. Non-Apple products mentioned include 1Password, AirFoil, BitTorrent Sync, Cargo Lifter, CloudyTabs, Dropbox, Exchange, Facebook, Firefox Flickr, Google+, Google Calendar, Google Chrome, Google Docs, Instagram, iPhoto Library Manager, LastPass, Outlook, Pandora, PhotoCard, Printopia, Reflector, Rdio, Spotify, Syncmate, Syncphotos, Transporter, Twitter, Xmarks, and more.

And, thanks to the Take Control Crash Course format, you can jump right to the chapter that answers your question, without having to read through lots of other information.
