I haven’t had the time to look at Launcher yet. But this post is a good one if you need some tips to get started.

My Growth as a Writer –

06.04.2015 02:00

Harry Marks:

Reading is everything. It’s almost more important than the actual writing. I absorb the books I read and in turn churn my stories in my mind to thicken them up. To make them richer. And I don’t just read the literary powerhouses to enrich my writing. I read genre novels to observe pacing and romance and action. I read bad books to know what not to do. I read award winners, award losers, and books that wouldn’t be allowed within 50 feet of an awards stage.

A fantastic post. There are three thing I focus on in my writing.

  1. Reading as much as possible

  2. Writing more and better, by writing more, and by focusing more and more on editing.

  3. Taking one step at a time.

My life with iPad

06.04.2015 02:00

Jim don’t write that many long form pieces, but I always love them. This one is about the iPad, it is fantastic, and you should read it.

I have a long and difficult relationship with it. I can use my iPad for almost everything. Except for software development and photography.

I use my Mac for almost everything, it is easier. But I always bring my iPad everywhere. I use it to read pdf’s and e-books, and I use it to play games and read RSS; for example when my iPhone runs out of battery.

My only dissapointment with the iPad is at the software side. And all of it is because of Apple. They have never delivered a iOS version for the iPad that doesn’t feel like a streched out iPhone OS.

Anyways. I love the iPad, even though I never thought it had such a big place in my day to day computing life.

The New Trackpad — MacSparky

David Sparks:

That’s right. The new Force Touch trackpad stumped me. It turned me into that old guy that doesn’t believe something is new. We then turned off the MacBook and I clicked it. Sure enough, nothing happened. The fancy magnets and unicorn tears they put inside the new trackpad absolutely makes it feel like you’re clicking.

Federico Viticci:

With version 5.3 of 1Password for iOS, the team at AgileBits has shipped considerable improvements to the app’s action extension, launched alongside iOS 8 back in September. In the updated app, the extension is now almost on par with the browser extension found in 1Password for desktop computers, which means I’ll no longer wish for the “real” 1Password extension whenever I’m logging into websites or setting up new logins on my iPhone and iPad.

Finally, it is great to see AgileBits improving the 1Password extension, it is the extension I use more than anything else on my iPhone.

Napkin 1.5

Napkin version 1.5 is out, I used to use it all the time when I worked a lot with screenshots. A great app, every OS X user out there that annotate screenshots or anything else should get it.

Tim Cook:

Our message, to people around the country and around the world, is this: Apple is open. Open to everyone, regardless of where they come from, what they look like, how they worship or who they love. Regardless of what the law might allow in Indiana or Arkansas, we will never tolerate discrimination.
