External microphone for shooting video on an iPhone?

Suggest a microphone to plug into my iPhone 5S to improve the audio of my iPhone videos? Lavalier preferred, but a little shotgun thingie would be ok too. Hoping to achieve improved voice quality with less roomtone, and I need the audio file to record right onto the video file- I don't want to sync it in post. Thanks!

Why does the iPhone Mail app change the order of mail recipients?

I've noticed that the iPhone Mail app automatically lists me as the first recipient when I am on the To: line of most emails. When I read the same email in Outlook, however, I am not listed as the first recipient; sometimes I am even the last on the To: line. Why is this happening? [more inside]

Programming Pop-Up Text in an iPhone App

I'm hoping to create an iPhone app that's a travel guide whose text pages will include some foreign terms. Users should be able to touch a foreign term to see a pop-up phonetic pronunciation. But the programmers I'm considering hiring say they're not sure how to do this, and suspect it might be expensive. Can anyone smart save the day and come up with a solution? [more inside]

How do I keep iphone call records for longer?

i'd like to keep a record of phone calls received - my iPhone does this, but only for the most recent two months. Can I export these somewhere or extend the time they're kept for? To clarify, I don't want to audiorecord the actual call, just keep a list of who called me and when. [more inside]

How can I control my iPhone without touching it?

I need to give a demonstration on an iPhone 6+, and need to have full control of the device. Difficulty level: I will not be holding the phone, and will not have a desk surface for a traditional mouse. In a perfect and just world, I would simply be able to connect a bluetooth mouse and use it like any other input device, but I understand that iOS does not support mice. Assume I do not need any multi touch gestures, just taps and swipes. [more inside]

How do I Delete the new Apple Watch App on My iPhone?

When my iPhone 6 updated its operating system yesterday, a new app for the Apple Watch appeared on the first screen. The link is to an ad saying the watch is coming soon. I tried the "delete app" procedure of pressing and holding the app button until it started quivering, but there's no "delete" option like there is on programs I've installed. I won't be buying an Apple Watch, and I want the space on the opening screen back. Is there any way?

I have an iphone 5c and my boyfriend has a Galaxy 4S. In the past month or so, we've had an issue where there can be a several hour (or day) delay in his receiving texts from me. It doesn't ALWAYS happen, but does several times a week. Is it his phone or mine, and how do we fix it? [more inside]

Downgrade iPhone 5 from 8.2 to 7.1.2

I thought I'd be okay if I waiting until iOS 8.2 to upgrade my iPhone 5 but I feel like I've made a terrible mistake. I would like to go back to 7.1.2 but that appears to be impossible. Is it? Or am I stuck with a phone I'm no longer happy with?

Best mileage tracking app for iphone

Hi all, I'm looking for a great mileage tracking app to record my business trips. A while back i used to be pleased with Trip Cubby until it no longer was supported after an upgrade. I went back to old fashioned notes for a while, but it's now 2015 and there must be a better way. What are your favourites? Needs to supports european parameters ( euros and kms). thanks!

iTunes bugs mix the bourgeoisie and the rebel

What's the best way to keep podcast subscriptions and listens on two Macs and an iPhone synced that supports downloading episodes (i.e., not web-only)? If the answer involves iTunes, I might need an explanation of how to fix it since each copy of iTunes seems to be doing its own thing. I'm not looking for live slinging/transfer of audio to another device since the Macs are in completely different locations and the phone isn't always around.

Why are random games loading to my iPhone when I sync?

When syncing my iPhone 5 to my Macbook Pro, every time I connect it it tries to load about 5 games from my apps collection from the Macbook to the phone. It's always the same games, and this is a new problem within the past month or so. I haven't updated the OS or anything else -- is there some "autosync" option with certain games that I need to turn off? It's a pain to have to delete them every other day.

Captivate 8 responsive design, breakpoints, iPhone 6 and heartbreak

I'm trying out Captivate 8's new responsive designs and HTML5 output and am very annoyed with how smartphones handle the HTML5 video. For now, I'm setting up alternate, video-free content for the Mobile breakpoint. But the huge size of modern phones means that their landscape viewports are often as wide or wider than the portrait viewports of proper tablets. Is there any way I can set up alternate content based on a device being a phone (popping out video in its own player) versus a tablet (displaying video like a civilized device)? [more inside]

iPhone MP3 weirdness...

I run a website that hosts almost 2,000 sermon MP3s (all content that we own or have permission to host). I have one iPhone user who says that when they listen to THIS SERMON (just the first 2.5 minutes) the audio skips and loops back to the beginning. I had 4 other iPhone users listen and cannot reproduce this issue. I have Googled until my fingers bled. Anyone know what could be causing this? It plays fine on Windows and Linux as well.

First words

It would make me so happy to wake up to podcasts in the morning. Do you do this? How? It seems easy enough, but I can't figure out how to configure my iPhone (iOS 7) alarm to play podcasts. The current options it gives me are ringtones or an iTunes song. Is this simply the matter of finding the right app? Thanks!!

Did I lose all my data on my iPhone during iOS upgrade?

I plugged my iPhone in to my computer and it says you need to upgrade your software. So the phone was updating to iOS 8.1.1 and it errored out. It says upgrading failed, you need to restore to factory setting and you will lose all the data. So I tried to upgrade again and it failed again. I took it to the geniuses at the apple store and they said there is no hope of recovering my data. Does the hive mind know of a way??
