If your iPad app's content is jumping from one pane of the UISplitViewController to the other, you're doing it wrong. #alienblue

L'appli "12 jours" offre un roman de Marc Lévy, donc j'ai mis mon iPad à la poubelle. Les éboueurs passent vers 19h si ça vous intéresse.

If IMDb's gonna make me register, they could at least remember what films I've seen so I can see at a glance "Where do I know her from?"

I'm surprised by how much more usable Flipboard became in the latest update. The interface for reading articles is now rather pleasant.

TweetMag for iPad finally out

Nonplussed at the moment; maybe when it becomes less sluggish.

 

Word Lens for iPhone

It's probably not all that reliable but you absolutely must play with the free demo.

Personne que je suive sur Twitter n'a encore reçu d'avertissement Hadopi, alors ?

Argh, it's 10.6.5

"It renders Photoshop more or less useless, as all tools behave as if a modifier key was held down"

(See link for workarounds.)

 

Amazon Windowshop is now available in France and by god how can anyone care to use such a laggy interface?

I'm out of space on the 750GB drive I use to store all my incoming downloads. (I'm a pack rat.) It's so time for a Drobo.

Oh, nice, I've screwed up a page on NoPic a week ago, thinking I was modifying a script on my client's site.

 

I had to download the iTunes Connect documentation PDF to find out where they'd hidden the option to generate promo codes. Nice UI.

The Nexus Two's minisite right out of apple.com, the Chrome OS netbook looking like a black MacBook… Google's not even pretending anymore.

Google Books Whale Fail

Cute and clever, but do you really want your gimmick to be a reference to a semi-competitor?

Tiens, j'ai oublié de noter sur Sens Critique les derniers films que j'ai vus. Plouf, le réseau social.

 

Doesn't Diaspora end up being more of a threat — uh, scratch that, I mean an also-ran competitor — to Twitter than to Facebook?

 

Wouldn't mid-December be a really weird time to launch the Mac App Store? Yes, Apple is running out of unoccupied months, but come on.

 

Why are clients systematically unable to remember passwords? It's like a disease.

 

I like Skitch's new official $0 price point, and the more subdued interface (though it's still trying too much to be special). Re-installed.

 

My iPad just made the weirdest noise, like plastic parts loudly snapping into place. I'm preparing for a battery explosion.

 

I like how Facebook made the new profile rollout kind of a viral game.

Friendly for iPad, which basically embeds Facebook's mobile webapp, wasn't worth buying, but at $0 with ads now I definitely recommend it.

First time I open Tarot Royale on my iPad, and even zoomed it looked pretty nice. Gotta get off my ass and make an actual HD version.

“Flipboard’s Big Update: This is an iPad Mag Done Right”

When readers tap content from [partnering] publishers shared by friends on Twitter or Facebook within the Flipboard app, they’re now taken to this new [custom-designed] magazine-like reading experience instead of a traditional Web page. And for publishers, the result of the tap is the same as a Web hit on their end.

That’s a really good idea (Flipboard’s other* big drawback is that you have to open each text-based article in a web view because the app itself will only display a pretty short excerpt) on one condition: that it’s easy for websites to partner with Flipboard so that anyone can supply its own stylesheets. If it stays reserved for select high-profile partners, it doesn’t really help the end user.

 

(* the other drawback being the lack of anything that could be called an "interestingness" algorithm, as I’ve already complained about several times.)

 

P.S. Okay, it’s now online and… just ridiculous. No simplification of the workflow, no improvements to the interface, just a full-screen browser that appears in replacement of the usual full-screen browser. Urgh.

 

Reeder for Mac is definitely a worthy alternative to the web interface, but it doesn't really add anything beyond the pretty.

 

Well, I finally found one person who appreciates the way my Google Reader client for iPad works. Philistines.
