What Podcasts Do People Want?

Member of the AppleVis Editorial Team

Hello all, I have a new microphone, the latest Audacity, an iPhone, a Mac, and time. So, what apps, VO features/commands, or other Applevis.com-related content would people like to have in audio form? I can do Mac, but cannot currently record that as easily as the iPhone. Let me know what you'd like and I can see about doing it. Much of what I thought about covering has already been done by others, but if anything is missing, let me know and I'll do my best to make a podcast about it.

Hi,I want the app CloudBeats podcasted.. It is a audio book player that can connect to sky drive, google drive, box, etc. Thanks

Hi. I thought i'd be polite, and not just dictate what I wanted. How about one about passbook? I knwo it's existence yet not how to use it. ;)

Hi. I would like a more advanced podcast on this app. There are already a few podcasts about this app on applevis, but they just cover the basic features and do not cover the more advanced features. I would like a very in depth podcast about all the features of this app. I have read the in app guide about 1000000 times and have even emailed the app developer for help and I still can only do very basic audio editing with it. I know it can do more then that, I just need to know how. If a podcast of this amount of detail would be too hard to do or would be too long, even just a written guide would be good. If you don't have the full version on your device to demo, maybe you can borrow a device with the app on it from someone who already got the full version, do the podcast and then give it back. Because the full version is $10. Thank you.

If you do this podcast and are wondering what I need to be covered, please go to www.applevis.com/forum/ios-ios-app-discussion/hokusai which is a post started by me that has no replies at the time of me writing this. There you will find some of what I need to know about hokusai. Then go to www.applevis.com/apps/ios/music/hokusai-audio-editor and read comment 9. That is where most of what I need to know is. Those 2 links will tell you what I want covered in the podcast or written guide. Thank you.

Hi. Not sure if this is what you need, but applevis already has a podcast on garage band. www.applevis.com/podcast/episodes/garageband-play-record-and-mix-music-pro-your-ios-device

Something that I have never fully got to grips with since making the switch to a Mac, is Time Machine. On the few occasions when I have tried to browse the backup, I haven't found it that intuitive to use with VoiceOver. Fortunately, I've yet to need it, but it would be really useful to have a demonstration of how to browse and restore previous versions of files … just in case the day comes when I do need to do this (smiles)

Thanks everyone. I've never used Cloud Beats or Hokusai, so would not be the best person to cover those. Time Machine is extremely easy, once you set things up, and I can definitely run through that. As others have said, a lot exists about Garageband, plus the interface may be different in the newest versions for OS10 and iOS. I prefer Audacity for audio editing, and I currently have no need for music synthesis so am not experienced in Garageband.

I'm an audio learner rather than a visual learner. Which is apropos, seeing I have plastic eyes. LOL Rather than the extra work of going between the help guide in Safari and Ferrite, I'd like to listen to and learn from a podcast that teaches me how to do everything from making a recording to editing, adding music, text, and sharing or blogging my podcast. Also, is the camera active with this app?
I don't mind using my hands. It's not that I'm too lazy to go from app to app. It's that I have fibromyalgia and arthritis in my hands, and they can only do so much work. I have to stop writing now due to that.

I would love to see quickie podcasts on how to use News in MacOS and how to use Mac's menu bar help. I imagine these podcasts might already exist, but I haven't found them.
