Craig,

Find a downloaded tune and scroll to the bottom of the album/single/ep. Up will appear 'you might also like...'

Ah, see it there.

It's right out of the way, not sure why you're getting so worked up by it. By the way you were going on thought it was in the middle of your actual library or something.

Thats not the point Craig. I can access all that via itunes app. I dont want it in my library app. If it could be switched off, then fine no problem. I appreciate not everyone will find it irksome. But I do. Its advertising. I only wish to see my stuff in my library, not some suggestions for what I might like. I know what I might like, I dont need some jumped up yankee shitehawk suggesting to me. I know better than that shitehole whats good music is. :)

I'm not 'really' worked up. Just a mild indignance at what I perceive as an invasion.

I'm pro apple too. Ive got macs, macbooks, basestation the whole goddamned kaboodle. Generally im fine with their changes. But music, start fucking with my music and i'll be off to apple hq to mess up their lawn.

:) I like to pay for my music. Always. Don't get me wrong I'll watch a pirate movie no sweat as I don't watch many movies; but music, I will always pay for. Anyways, I's started to re-collect vinyl. To replace that lost in a burglary 25yrs ago. So apple iTunes can fek off now. I've refound my mojo.

I'm running out of multinationals now. amazon, google, starbucks, boots (yeah), Johnson & Johnson and many others have irked me and now I just don't use them anymore. Maybe this should be moved to that annoy thread as I'm having a victor meldrew moment.

Its bollocks when you realise you've turned into a moany old c*nt...

Yeah John, I've had terrible trouble with podcasts on my iPhone ever since I got it. Total clusterfuck, so bad that I can't even use it for podcasts at all anymore without totally doing my head in. And now I'm having trouble synching songs that I've added from my library to the phone. It used to be so easy to use.

I don't know mate, it's an unholy mess. It just doesn't work at all the way it used to and it gets cluttered so easily. I just can't get it to function well at all.

Anyone with an imac, have you ever had the black screen of death?

If so, what fixed it?

This is driving me absolutely crazy.

I have reset both the pram and smc, lots of times and it makes no difference at all    >:(

Updated an ipad mini, 2 I believe, to ios 9.3.5 and the youtube icon disappeared. Now, I couldn't care less - as I don't use it, however, this is the end of the world for daughter #2... *rolleyes*

I find it under 'bought' apps in the app store, but hitting open - or anything else for that matter, does the combined sum of feck all.. I've fiddled about in the restrictions and made sure that the 'apps' section is at 17+, which, apparently, youtube requires.

Uhm.. halp!

Games wise, New Star Soccer (addictive as hell) creators have brought out New Star Cricket which is equally as addictive

Also, Mini Metro which had a thread on here is now out for ipad. I spend hours on that
We already have shit in the country, and the game of Liverpool fills life with joy. Thanks

Looking to switch to an android when contract is up on my iPhone

I'm looking for an app that retrieves  contacts from this phone and makes it simpler to install on my new phone.
Have tried a free one but when I checked the file there was only one contact in it.

Hey guys, I have a problem with managing my music on my Iphone 7. When i download a song and put it in Itunes and sync it with my iphone it works. But for some reason when i decide to manage my music and decide for example to have song number 3 on top of my list, it doesn't work. It just goes back to it original place.  On Itunes i have the option of manually manage my music and videos on so it should work but it doesn't. So can anyone plz help me with it.

Can anyone please help me with this problem :)

OGYoutube lets you download videos from YouTube or just the audio from a video as an MP3.

Not sure if it's on IOS though as I use Android.

Actually it was an Android device I was using for it - a programme called Audio Pocket - it's been brilliant but recently it won't convert video to audio - so assuming it's either had its servers turned off, or Youtube has changed the encoding in their videos rendering this app hopeless.

Going to give that a try also. Going to grab Workflow for my iPad tho.

OGYoutube works and looks pretty identical to the official YouTube app. Except it has a red arrow and DOWNLOAD button. It looks like it's part of an advert, but it's not. It will prompted a menu which allows you to pick any video quality as MP4 or 3GP. But it also lets you just download as MP3. Works a treat and as far as I can see there is no adverts on it. Downloads very quickly too.

Awesome. There's a regular series I like to listen to on youtube and each one is 3-4 hours long, so it's a pain trying to keep youtube open all the time, especially when I'm listening in bed.

A trick around that (if you don't want to download the MP3) is open YouTube in Firefox on Android. It allows you to have YouTube running in the background and lets you lock your phone and therefore turn off the screen. I believe this app allows the same anyway.

Yeah it sounds boss to me! What's the major differences between the Air and Pro besides the screen size?

In short, grunt under the hood. The Pro has double the RAM ordinarily (assuming you are looking at new) and much faster processors capable of hyper threading and all sorts of other complex shit that people use in professional capacities - engineering, design, programming, rendering. It has a better screen and extra trackpad tech also.

If you are just using it for day to day bloke stuff, then the Air will have more than enough power - the battery is insane on them too - they claim 12 hours and you get 12 hours.

In short, grunt under the hood. The Pro has double the RAM ordinarily (assuming you are looking at new) and much faster processors capable of hyper threading and all sorts of other complex shit that people use in professional capacities - engineering, design, programming, rendering. It has a better screen and extra trackpad tech also.

If you are just using it for day to day bloke stuff, then the Air will have more than enough power - the battery is insane on them too - they claim 12 hours and you get 12 hours.
Thanks for the insight and knowledge as per Lfsea! Looks like I'll be purchasing a MBA sooner rather than later :)

Presumably you had a security permission exemption to run Movie Box (I do on my iPad). If so, that's probably expired and you'll need to get a new one.

I pay a website - builds.io - $9.99 a year for mine and it allows me to maintain the 'third party' apps easily and with no fuss. Also means I can get emulators etc running as well, all without the need for Jailbreaking.

No, I have had the app a few years, and was running my ipad on an old IOS. I never upgraded the software as I thought the app would stop working. Now it has stopped working anyway.

I see from PlayboxHD theres a couple of sites (iPASTORE and iPwnStore.me) which charge $9.99 a year membership. I presume that's the same thing you use?

I might take a look at builds.io - can I then download Movie Box from there?

Thanks for the help :)

Ah I see - lucky you :D

Builds.io has a couple of TV/Movie apps on there at the moment, Movie Box & one called CinemaBox or something like that - they both do exactly the same thing with a slightly different skin on top.

I've been using Builds for a couple of years now and it's all very professional (as much as a site offering sideloaded software can be) - and you use Pay Pal so you're totally protected. I can only vouch for Builds but if you go to the site, you can see all the apps they offer without paying.

Also has advanced builds of Kodi so you can stream games etc.
