Hi Lifehacker, I am about to visit a holiday home from friends and I will be using their 4G connection while I’m there. However, I have my Mac set up so it syncs with Dropbox and Google Drive. Is there an app out there which will let me switch on/off which apps I allow to use bandwidth so I don’t use their 4G data needlessly?
Mac: You’ll find lots of syncing notes apps out there, but we like the iOS version of Write because it manages to toe the line between simplicity and feature-packed. The new Mac app makes that experience even better.
1Password is one of our favourite password managers, and it can sync to all your devices via Dropbox. Once you sync your vault of passwords, 1Password actually lets you access them on any device without installing the app.
Hot on the heels of Google Drive’s massive storage price cuts , iDrive has announced competitive pricing for its online backup and syncing service. For roughly the same price as Google Drive, you get double the storage space, split between your backup sets and synced files — plus it’s half off today.
Mac: If you’re an iPhone or iPad user, you know how nice it is that iCloud manages to sync all your Safari tabs across computers. Unfortunately, that’s not really useful if you don’t use Safari on your Mac. CloudyTabs is an app that sits in your menubar and shows you all your open tabs on different devices. Click on one, and it opens in your default browser on your Mac.
