Many people know that setting one of your contacts names in your phone to include “ICE” can help paramedics and other people contact your next of kin “In Case of Emergency”. But what if your phone is locked and you are not able to provide your passcode?
Enter Apple Health! Continue reading “Emergency Medical Contact details (or ICE) on iOS”
Caffeine is one of those little apps that I use every single day and don’t even pay a second thought too. So here it is, my attempt to pay it forward and to pass on some handy tips for people who use a Mac everyday and get frustrated with Sleep mode kicking in if they look away for more than a minute.

Just a quick post this time, for those of you looking to add sharing into your App.

Here’s a simple little tip that I only discovered yesterday.

You want to use Composer but you’re not quite sure what you’re doing?
Apple have tightened up their security with the release of OSX El Capitan.
I am not hugely familiar with Composer and other command line interfaces. In order to learn I wanted to get Composer installed globally to make life a little easier.
