PayPal Here Trumps Square’s Tech By Taking Camera Scans of Paper Checks and Cards

15 Mar

This is incredible. Hopefully with cheaper rates, PayPal will give some stiff competition to high-priced Square:

“Besides the card reader, vendors will be able to accept payments by using their phone’s camera to scan cards or checks. PayPal will also allow you to pay for purchases even if you don’t have a card or a check on you. If you’ve got a PayPal account, and the PayPal app on your phone, you can pay anyone with a PayPal Here account using your phone—given the huge number of people with PayPal accounts, this last feature might be the most useful of all.”

 

From a Gizmodo commenter:

the only other redeeming factor is if you use your PayPal debit card [provided for free] you get 1% back on purchases…. so they are saying thats like taking the 2.7% cut that they take down to a low low 1.7%

23 Feb

Grab 50GB of Free Storage for Life on Box by Using the Android App.

Grab 50GB of Free Storage for Life on Box by Using the Android App

Online storage and sharing service Box is serving up 50GB of free space to all Android users. All you have to do it log in from the Android app, which has been updated with some new features, by midnight March 23rd.

Last year Box gave iOS users this 50GB upgrade and now it’s finally Android users’ turn. Here are the instructions from Box’s blog:

This promotion ends on Friday, March 23, 2012 at 11:59pm PST, so grab your free 50GB on Box by following these steps:

1. Visit the Android Marketplace and download Box for Android
2. Log into your account or register for a new one directly from the app
3. Start sharing and collaborating in the cloud
4. (optional but recommended) Tell the world how you’ll use your 50GB with the hashtag #Box50GB

Your file upload limit will also be bumped up to 100MB. Your new 50GB total storage space can be accessed from any device (not just Android).

Updates to the Android app include bulk uploading, adding collaborators to a shared folder, leaving comments on files, and additional languages.

While Box doesn’t sync your files, 50GB of extra cloud storage could come in quite handy.

How to Get the Best Features of Mac OS X Mountain Lion Right Now

17 Feb

 

This morning, Apple announced the next version of Mac OS X, dubbed Mountain Lion, is scheduled to be available at the end of summer. It’s filled with cool new features, but who wants to wait until this summer to get them? Here’s how you can get the best features of Mountain Lion right now.

Messages

How to Get the Best Features of Mac OS X Mountain Lion Right NowMessages is a little like iChat, but it lets you send messages to iOS devices via iMessage, and if you have Mac OS X 10.7.3 on your computer, you can actually start using theMessages beta today. Just download it, install it, and start keeping your messages in sync across all your Apple devices.

Notification Center

You’ve probably seen Notification Center on iOS 5 as it was probably the most-desired feature lacking from Apple’s mobile operating system. It provides a more subtle notification system on your mobile device and a pulldown list to see your current notification history. A similar feature will be available as part of Mac OS X Mountain Lion. Although Apple’s Notification Center for the desktop is going to be a far more robust, most of us currently use Growl for notification banners. Growl will cost you a few dollars if you want the latest version, but you can download an older copy for free. The advantage of paying is that the latest version (only available for Mac OS X Lion 10.7 or later) includes a feature called Rollup, which is essentially the same as Notification Center. (See the screenshot to the right for an example.) It saves your notifications in a little window so you can see what you missed while you were away.

 

Growl is limited by what can send it messages, however, so you won’t receive notifications for things like SMS and calls. If you’re a Google Voice user you can get those notifications by installing an app like GrowlVoice ($5) or BigPhone ($5 / Free). These apps not only let you get call and text notifications on your computer, but let you respond to both as well.

AirPlay Mirroring

How to Get the Best Features of Mac OS X Mountain Lion Right NowAirPlay Mirroring takes whatever is on your Mac’s screen and wirelessly mirrors it on your television (via an Apple TV) or any other device that can receive an AirPlay transmission. You can do this right now with an app called AirParrot ($10). It provides the exact same functionality. If you want to take things a step further than Mountain Lion can offer, then you’ll also want to check outAirServer. This app will let you receive AirPlay signals on your Mac so you can send video from other devices, like your iPhone or iPad, and watch them on the computer.

GateKeeper

How to Get the Best Features of Mac OS X Mountain Lion Right NowGateKeeper is Apple’s attempt at preventing malware on your Mac, and it does this by letting you decide which kinds of apps are allowed to run and which apps are not. You can run any app you download (the way things currently work in Lion), only allow Mac App Store apps or apps signed with an official Apple developer ID to run, or just allow apps downloaded directly from the Mac App Store to run. Obviously you can currently run all apps or just Mac App Store apps right now, without any fancy features, but the developer ID check is definitely something new. While we believe that you’ll be just fine if you’re diligent, there is malware protection and antivirus software for your Mac should you want to play it extra safe right now.

iCloud

How to Get the Best Features of Mac OS X Mountain Lion Right NowiCloud—Apple’s service that syncs all your information to the cloud and across devices—is already a part of Mac OS X, but the integration is deeper in Mountain Lion. One of the features Apple is touting in the iCloud upgrade is document sync, allowing you to access your documents across multiple computers and mobile devices. You can have that right now with InSync and a Google Docs account. InSync lets you access all your Google Docs files directly from your desktop and keeps them in sync with the online version as well as any other computers. Of course, there’s also Dropbox. It’s not exactly the same thing, but it will keep your documents in sync and we do love it a lot.

Share Sheets

How to Get the Best Features of Mac OS X Mountain Lion Right NowShare Sheets is a feature that essentially places a drop-down menu in your browser (and a few other apps) so you can easily share media with others through various services. You can achieve this same effect in any web browser by creating a folder of bookmarklets—little pieces of JavaScript that perform simple functions. For example, bookmarklets exist to save an article to Instapaper or Read It Latershare on Facebook or Twittersend an image to Flickrsend a web page as an email, and much more. There are so many bookmarklets nowadays that you really just have to search for what you want to accomplish with the word “bookmarklet” after it and you’ll have it. As a result, you can build out your own Share Sheet-esque bookmarklet folder with more functionality than Mountain Lion will be able to provide.

Notes

How to Get the Best Features of Mac OS X Mountain Lion Right NowNotes is Apple’s addition of a syncing notes application to Mac OS X, but there’s absolutely no reason to wait for Mountain Lion to get this functionality whenNotational Velocity, using the Simplenoteservice, already provides this exact functionality. In fact, Simplenote is so well done that you’ll probably continue to use it after you get your hands on Apple’s official syncing notes application. Simplenote has apps for iOSAndroid, and Windows so you have the additional advantage of using any platform you want. If you want to use rich text and images, try Evernote instead.

Reminders

How to Get the Best Features of Mac OS X Mountain Lion Right NowReminders is just a simple to-do app, and there are plenty of those to go around on Mac OS X already. Our favorite isWunderlist, which is a slightly more robust task management app that works on multiple platforms so you’re not syncing your to-dos with just your Mac. You can have them on your iPhoneiPadAndroid,Windows computer as well. It also works in your web browser, providing access just about anywhere.

9 Nov

Calling it now: Quillt has the potential to be the hottest new thing for capturing digital memories. Sure there’s Facebook and Twitter, but all you can really do is upload fragmented memories in different photo albums, wall posts, status updates, and other threats. There’s no unity. No story.

Quillt fixes this problem by allowing you and all your friends to “stitch” together memories on your shared Quillt for any party, vacation, all-nighter, or whatever.

It’s a unified experience that translates into an easily readable story.

"Quillt" app fills the void between Facebook and Twitter status updates.

(Note: You need to sign up to be admitted into the Swamp Restaurant).

Quillt, produced by Austin Cooley, Niko Ralf Cunningham, and Shane Mooney, and backed by a co-founder of Facebook, is app that provides the perfect way for close friends to share their lives together. From the road trip you and the gang took to the late-night study session before finals to the night of your life you had on your first date with Mrs. Right, Quillt stitches your entire social life together. It’s a social networking app that is meant for people who are actually social.

Start a Quillt for every occasion, party, group, circle of friends, road-trip, vacation…whatever, and allow as many of your friends with you to add to your Quillt. Getting hammered tonight? QUILLT IT! Start your story with Quillt and let up to 5 of your closest friends follow your night/event/party/story.
