So you have some movies and TV shows you’d like to watch on your Apple TV or sync with your iOS devices. You’ve already converted the video to an iTunes friendly format and placed it in your iTunes library. However it doesn’t have the artwork applied that is needed to make it look all pretty. Well, I’ve got a pretty nifty tip to get that artwork.
Dropbox is a very popular cloud-based storage service, and yesterday they updated its iOS app with a “shiny new design” as well as a new Photos tab; a very well implemented and appreciated addition.

One of the worst things about syncing an iOS device was that it had to be plugged in to your computer by USB. Not anymore.

Ever wanted to add emoticons to your text messages or emails instead of a simple text happy face?

It comes pre-installed on your iOS device, all you have to do is find the somewhat hidden option, and enable it.
