My children have seen all the raving YouTube-reviews about the painting game Passpartout The Starving Artist by Flamebait Games. Now they want to play the game themselves, but they don’t have a Mac or a PC…
Is there a way to play Passpartout The Starving Artist on their iPad ?
Yes, there is an official iOS-version of the Passpartout The Starving Artist game for sale on the iOS App Store :
My children have an iPad with a managed account ; they can’t buy any apps from the iTunes App Store nor can they do any In-App Purchases without my approval ; every time they want to buy something from their iPad, I get a message on my iPhone that I need to approve the purchase.
This normally works without a flaw, but today when my children asked for a new app, I got the approval question message on my iPhone, but when I opened it, the iTunes App store wouldn’t load ; the page stays blank and the wheel keeps on spinning… no matter how many times I try… same thing every time… even restarting my iPhone didn’t help…
What is wrong ?
Since the introduction of iOS 11, there’s also a new version of the iTunes App Store as you might have noticed… now this new App Store was made more consumer-friendly as it does no longer show you apps that can’t run on your device.
This ‘consumer-friendliness’ has introduced a flaw (or rather a bug) : on your iPhone you can no longer see iPad-only apps in the App Store… that turns out to be problematic for the approval process : as your iPhone can’t show the app your children want to purchase for their iPad, you can’t approve it…
Until Apple fixes this, the only option is to approve the purchase from your own iPad… (so I sure hope you have one…) or temporarily switch of limitations on your children’s iPad…
NOTE : even approval from iTunes on your Mac isn’t an option, as Apple has stripped the iOS Apps section from the iTunes app recently…
I just received a WhatsApp message from someone which had some words written in bold letters. I want to reply using some bold writing myself, but I can’t find any option to do so on the keyboard.
How can I typ text in bold ?
When typing text in a WhatsApp message, you can make text (letters, numbers, words, sentences) bold by just typing an asterisk (the * symbol) directly before and directly behind the text you want to display in bold. So, if you type *bold* in your message, it will display as bold on the receiver’s screen.
I just upgraded to iOS 11 and I’m very happy with this new version of iOS, but when I opened the Calendar app and went into Month-view I noticed that all weeks now start on Sundays, which I find very confusing.
I can remember that I was able to choose on what weekday my weeks should start, but I have set that long ago in some previous version of iOS to never be bothered with it again.
But now it’s been reset to the (American ?) weeks starting ons Sundays, which is very annoying as we (Europeans) tend to start new weeks on Mondays…
…where has the option to customize this gone ?
This is very simple to fix, you just need to know where to find it :
open the Settings app on your iOS 11 iPhone or iPad
then goto Calendar
then on the next page you can adjust the settings of your Calendar, and adjust it according to your preference
then click on “Start Week On” and choose “Monday” from the list
