    Wrong Location name in iPhone Photos

    This is just the native iPhone app, so I'm not really trying to find another app to fix it (if that's what you meant). Yeah, I was wondering about stuff like that, but it looks like the course opened as Fox Hollow in 1993. And Apple Maps on the iPhone has it listed as Fox Hollow. (Same thing on the Apple Maps app on my MBP.) So I don't know how it's getting Rocky Point. . So that's why I was looking for a quick way (if anyone knew of one) to just edit the Collections/Moments in the phone.

    Wrong Location name in iPhone Photos

    On the phone? I don’t know if you can search the App Store. But even then I’m pretty sure the EXIF data is just the GPS coordinates so Apple Maps may have the name wrong. Maybe that course was named that a few years ago and it just hasn’t been updated.
  4. I took some pics with my iPhone while playing a couple courses in the Denver area this week. When I look at the pics in Photos, the app gives the location (which is fine--I don't have location turned off), but it gives the wrong name to one of the courses (Fox Hollow; it says I was at Rocky Point Golf Course). I tried to find a solution through Google, but most of the hits I got were for where the phone had the gps location wrong. Here, the gps location is correct (I verified from the metadata into google maps), and it lists the city correctly (OK, should be Lakewood CO instead of Denver, but close enough). Anybody know how to edit the metadata or tags in Photos on the iPhone? (I don't think there even is a Rocky Point Golf Course in the Denver area.) I'm using an iPhone 6s with iOS 11.3.1. Thanks.

    Magic Trackpad 1 vs 2

    After using it for a bit, it's an improvement over "horizontal" mouses. Thanks for the suggestion! I made the mistake of buying the wrong handed mouse though, as I prefer using a mouse lefty, obviously vertical mouses are L/R handed dependent. So with both attached, V mouse and Trackpad and switching between each, body is complaining less. One day there will be a read my mind "mouse". Kind of like in Star Trek where Scottie takes the mouse and says, "Computer!".

    Magic Trackpad 1 vs 2

    Thanks for the suggestion. I didn't get the Evoluent, but bought a more entry level vertical mouse to see what it's like. Bought the Magic Trackpad 2 - so far, it's working out well, helping to alleviate the strain. Should have gotten one earlier.

    Magic Trackpad 1 vs 2

    When I use my MacBook Pro at home I almost exclusively use the built-in trackpad. On my PC at work I have an Evoluent mouse that I really like. They call it a vertical mouse - the buttons are on the right side so your arm sits more naturally.

    Magic Trackpad 1 vs 2

    Yeah, I was lukewarm on the trackpad at first then found myself using it over the mouse without even thinking about it.

    Magic Trackpad 1 vs 2

    I didn't like the trackpad until I cranked the sensitivity way up. I should've remembered this with all my years of doing so with a mouse playing Half-Life lol. For some reason it didn't dawn on me with my first Macbook to do so. Love the trackpad now.
  10. nevets88

    Magic Trackpad 1 vs 2

    So superior. Even the best PC touchpads could barely keep up. One of the reasons I switched long ago.

    Magic Trackpad 1 vs 2

    Because they'd all be Apple touchpads, as always. Apple's always had better touchpad type surfaces than those found on PC laptops. I use a trackpad for my desktop, even, and I was a HARD CORE mouse user for years. I had programmable Logitechs, etc. The increase in gestures for macOS trackpads has helped.
  12. Question for those who have experience using these. Getting a little RSI using a mouse (even alternating between both hands) and looking into getting a touchpad to alleviate wrist and shoulder strain. Main usage is for IDEs. I like the 2, it's got a bigger surface, force touch. Are there other models I'm missing? Don't see any Wirecutter entries for best wireless touchpads.

    New AR app from PGA Tour

    Ah. I missed that. Oh well, if that’s the worst part of my week, then things are pretty good.

    New AR app from PGA Tour

    Looks like it won't work on a 6S. Bummer.

    New AR app from PGA Tour

    I don't know if your phone is new enough, but… yeah, point it at a surface, like a desk or table or something.

    New AR app from PGA Tour

    How is it supposed to work? When I start it, it just goes to a screen saying “detecting surface.” (iPhone 6s, running iOS 11.2.6. Does it only work on newer phones?)

    New AR app from PGA Tour

    I haven't tried it yet, but from what I've read it seems to me like it's a solid step 1 of something bigger. I'm sure they'll iterate it, improve what they have, add holes, etc.
  18. iacas

    New AR app from PGA Tour

    I tried it. Meh. The models are okay. The problem I have with it, I think, is that the model is so big. It's a 150- to 550-yard hole… represented on your desktop, countertop, or floor. It scales badly. It's tiny. Plus, it's then shrunk down to fit on your phone screen. So the scale is tough. It'd be awesome if I could put myself somewhere ON the hole and move my camera around to see what it would look like if I was staring down the same shot. Now THAT would be cool!
  19. So it's kind of a 3D TopTracer on your device. Since this is posted in the Apple Club, obviously, iOS only, no Android, for now. https://www.pgatour.com/news/2018/03/12/pga-tour-innovative-augmented-reality-app.html
  20. And looking at all those videos of Woods with people and their smartphones in the background, and walking around the city, seeing people constantly taking photos. Lots of people toss around the phrase, this changed my life. This camera/video camera, truly changed my life.

    Apple TV - Masters App - 4K? HDR?

    I found this: https://www.ibm.com/sports/masters

    Apple TV - Masters App - 4K? HDR?

    Lemme try those youngsters at reddit.

    Apple TV - Masters App - 4K? HDR?

    I don't know. I don't have a 4K TV or the last generation of 4K AppleTVs.
  24. I finally cracked and bought a 4K HDR tv and am considering getting the ATV as I have a decent iTunes video library, want to take advantage of the 4K library. Anyone know if the Masters app on the ATV is 4K? HDR?
  25. I supported the Kickstarter at a higher level than I'm comfortable admitting. At $8, that's a steal. P.S. Screw Twitter. The app they got from Loren for macOS was awesome and they completely squandered it. What a joke.
  26. Not sure how long this will last. I've been a diehard iOS Tweetbot user for awhile, I like the integration across devices with Twitterrific though.
