Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

RT @dnouri: Amazing examples of “Deep Photo Style Transfer” (from left to right are input, style and output) [github.com] https://t.co/PrDFtxVkHR

Trying to open the character palette with one hand. Without muscle memory, zero clue what the keyboard shortcut could be.

RT @marcoarment: A few weeks ago, Workflow asked all supported apps to sign a simple 1-page contract confirming permission to call our URL schemes. 2/x

RT @stroughtonsmith: Apple’s track record for app acquisitions isn’t bad. Siri, TestFlight, (Beats) surely the most high-profile in recent memory

Wanted to avoid knee-jerk negativity, but got a lingering sense that needing to buy Workflow 18 months into the iPad Pro’s existence isn’t a good sign.

From deep OS integration to just being able to cheat the App Review process and push updates a little beyond guidelines. Or just slow death.

RT @rafahari: Introducing Settings’ Stories!

Don’t know where to change the wifi? Share a selfie with all your friends! https://t.co/EISQ4PzEn1

RT @thatjohn: #ElectronicsBan puts lithium batteries in the hold, where it is impossible to fight runaway fires. Significant safety risk for no benefit. https://t.co/mFCI5E1Cpz

The smaller 9.7” iPad is $70 cheaper than the only 7.9” Mini (which has an A8), but then when’s the last time Apple’s product ranges made sense?

(How little profit margin for an Apple product obviously. I’m sure it’s quite healthy enough.)

In other words, they’ve lowered all the iPad prices as far as they could go. Wonder how much (or little) profit margin is left.

Okay, the 128GB Mini is now at the price 32GB was last year. So, to sell 32GB now, it’d have to be $300, which I guess would be too cheap.

RT @parrots: Devious. [maps.google] now redirects to google/maps, so granting location permission is for [google.com] domain. https://t.co/2huLa9guBP

So, basically, hashtag wishful thinking. (Though I’d then have to choose between iPad Mini Pro and Oculus Rift for my next paycheck 😰)

I can’t see Apple announcing a new CPU or design via press release, so I guess the only other option is an iPad Air 3 with the Pro’s CPU? Which is dubious… but possible.

If tomorrow’s update is indeed about the iPad, I’m wondering if a 7.9” Pro might be the only model Apple would considering launching without making a press presentation.

RT @konklone: Some utility company with a login form served over HTTP filed a Firefox bug complaining about a warning. Hilarious: https://t.co/dDvzmLAd8A https://t.co/IHX57x2ySD

I have no idea whether that means the jpegs I got out of it were the original or edited versions.

I use Image Capture to get the photo roll out of my iPad; apparently .AAE files store the edits

What weird framework does EA use for the Origin app that they managed to mishandle Retina screens the same way as HiDPI Windows?

(Did I mention here that Darkroom 2 is great? Darkroom 2 is great. But I wish it were integrated in Instagram.)

How does it make sense that Instagram has never used its Facebook money to develop or acquire a UI to create your own filters?

Before giving up, Blackberry should have made an iPhone case with a secondary BBOS+keyboard phone embedded in the back.

Is there an extension that only hides the “reply” buttons on Reddit? The comment threads are sometimes useful, but posting is never good.

18 March

Mail on iPad systematically crashes thirty seconds after launch because I forgot to remove some obsolete accounts from its settings.

17 March

RT @mrgan: You can put whatever Share button in your news app, people are going to post a screenshot of their lock screen with a notification on it

16 March

RT @CaseyNewton: The nightmare version of the future always arrives so much faster than you expect [twitter.com]

RT @tprstly: Have you never wondered why it was called a software patch? [pic.twitter.com]

15 March

Damn, it’s the first time in years I get a “Balance Carried Forward” on the iTunes Connect financial reports page.

After trying Apple’s emailed link three times over 24h it finally occurred to me the error must just be that I wasn’t logged in

14 March

Because users don’t love anything so much as being unable to remove the most useless system options

For some reason I might be starting a new app and are you kidding me that there still isn’t an official UIGestureRecognizer for 3D Touch?

Meanwhile BlackCam has a good Gotham filter but it’s at the end of a long horizontal list that can’t be reordered 😒

Damn, Gotham was nice.

Checking out black & white photo filters on iOS again, coming out empty-handed again. Why would you make an app that refuses to load existing photos?

RT @Freerunnering: I’m particularly fond of Acorn’s use of SQLite as a file format.
