Hey, it’s a three-day weekend! Might we suggest you unwind with this recap of our biggest stories from the week gone by? This week, we offered advice for dealing with Mac annoyances, reviewed all kinds of products and software, and and unlocked some Lion mysteries.
The iOS wrap
First off, you should know that the Weekly Wrap isn’t the only weekly roundup we run here at Macworld. And since we’re kicking off a long weekend, you have some extra reading time, I’m guessing. So don’t miss
The Week in iOS Apps or
The Week in iOS Accessories. Both are written weekly, but never weakly.
You want more app coverage? We have more app coverage! We have an
expert’s guide to Instapaper, for one. And if you want to go hands-on (or is it fingers-on?) with some new apps, we did just that with
Facebook Camera and
“So much great iOS content, Lex!” you cry. “We surrender!” You sound an awful lot like France. And for the historical context of that reference, don’t miss our review of
two Word War II reference apps for the iPad. Or, do your own research in the
just updated Google app for iOS.
And when it’s time to unwind, there’s

inside the mysteries of Mission Control! Perhaps the best part of Mission Control is that—if you’re alone at least—you’re free to make spaceship sound effects every time you trigger it.
Mac 911 this week offered tips on
gifting Mac Apps, emailing videos, and more. We also offered up a hint on
copying calendar events.
For our weekly video, we shared
two useful Automator workflows—and trust us, Automator is easier than you think!
And our reviewers put numerous Mac titles to the test this week. Among them:
Justnotes—which, contrary to its name, doesn’t just do notes … It also syncs them across other devices;
PDF Editor Pro—another app whose name leaves little to the imagination;
Coda 2—a lot like Jaws 2, but without Roy Scheider;
Adobe Premiere Pro CS6—movie editing software that’s almost Oscar-worthy; and
Diablo III, which is a lot like its predecessors, only Diabloier.
And to wrap up the Wrap…
Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference is coming, and we podcasted with Mac and iOS developers about
what to expect from the June event.
