Capturing Streaming Tech Videos on Mac with Movavi Screen Capture for Mac

  4. Click ‘REC’ to start recording after a 5 second delay and play the video during that duration.
  5. Click ‘Stop’ when the video is done.
  6. If you want to can trim out unwanted parts of the video that was recorded by positioning the marker and using the ‘scissors’ icon to split the video, then selecting the segment that you want to remove and clicking on the ‘trash can’ icon.

Gotta hand it to the people at the local digital company TOOCH for coming up with a Apple IOS game based on a classic Philippine folklore. The Juan Tamad game is a puzzle game that hopes to introduce the classic character in a fun and interactive way to children. The game app is free at Apple iTunes Store so there’s no reason not to try it out. If you’re wondering how it goes, I made a run with the game also asked the kids to try it out.

iA Writer: Focus on Writing App

iA Writer for iPad

No settings. No formatting. No font choices. Everything stripped down to its bare essentials. That’s how wonderful iA Writer app is for me. In a world where a lot of software developers are packing features and customizations, going back to the basic and simplest way to write is refreshing. It feels like having an old typewriter where you just roll in a paper then start typing in on a blank screen and let the words flow.

New iPod Shuffle, Nano and Touch launched with Philippine Prices

Launching of Apples new iPod in the Phil
Launching of Apple's new iPod in the Phil

Music have always been a constant travel companion. I got not one a but a few MP3 players at my disposal but I’ve only been a recent convert to iPod. I’ve only got an old iPod Classic Video but it works well and a pleasure to use bringing in full artist discographies at my disposal. Apple announcements have always been look forward to. And it’s great Apple isn’t far behind on distribution here.

First up was the introduction of the new iPod Shuffle. It is now rectangular but sleek in design and comes in 5 different colors. Controls are via the earphones. Am not really a fan of the shuffle due to its low capacity and absence of status screens. But now they have increased the capacity and are able to save playlist. What’s more, it talks to you. On a press of a control, it tells you what playlist is running and even the name of the artist and song playing. That surely makes up for the lack of screen. 2gig capacity is priced at Php 3290 while 4gig is Php 4390
