Welcome! Tell us a bit about yourself and what you use your Apple gear for?

I also use my iPad as a second monitor using the DisplayPad App, which is handy as I have it mounted on the HoverBar.

What are some of the apps that you use most often?

The OS X and iOS software I use most frequent is as follows:

    Imac is great except that there is a Mavericks problem working with photos. Saving to .tif sometimes but not always does not allow the icon image to show. Very annoying for a photographer.

    OK I knew this was British the moment I saw the “Keep Calm and Carry On” slogan behind the iMac. Essential words of wisdom for a small business owner!
