That’s been my objection to the last few years’ fashion in UI design.
I’d be getting ready to order a Kindle Paperwhite if only it had page-turn buttons. Swipe is just not as efficient, and it’s messy.
RT @jjustice: Objective C always reminds me of nursery rhymes. -(id)doYouKnowTheMuffinMan:(TheMuffinMan *)theMuffinMan;
TextEdit taking minutes to launch and display the iCloud panel, instead of creating a blank file in a split second. That’s progress.
Spoiler: it really is still nothing more than a head-mounted camera.
I’ve used Photoshop on my 13-inch MacBook, and Xcode, but the real hardship will be when it comes to following multiple keynote liveblogs.
See, if they hadn’t made a dumb white iPhone, having a bunch of letterboxed applications wouldn’t be an issue at all.
Verified today that my iPhone was indeed unlocked even though, like both previous times, iTunes never confirmed it when I did the restore.
As in, even more magical than a Segway.
RT @danielpunkass: Apple could let customers install any App Store apps on Macs and iOS devices in Apple Store. Great for testing and trialing.
Oh, looks like it’s a known feature of Mountain Lion that it randomly loses your login items. I’d been wondering what the fuck was going on.
Can’t be bothered to avoid the update forever, guess I’ll just delete the app.
Scratch what I said about Twitter enjoying the iMessage screwups: I forgot how much they de-emphasized DMs in their mobile client.
I guess they see DMs as something that can’t be monetized. Too shortsighted to realize the benefit of becoming central to their users’ life?
One more form factor, five more screenshots to make per language when you upload an app. I know it benefits the customer, but it’s a pain.
Almost half the comments on Reddit are saying the old Twitter for iPad was impractical and headache-inducing. I don’t even.
In case you were wondering, as I couldn’t find any documentation: <meta name=”apple-itunes-app” content=”app-id=YOURAPPID”> and that’s it!
What happens if you receive a text between backing up your iPhone and it rebooting to install the OS update? I suppose the text is lost?
Seems silly to me that iOS 6 supposedly “syncs notifications” but there’s still no mechanism to give each notification an arbitrary ID.
Sad thought: what if Do Not Disturb mode ends up training everyone to call again instead of leaving a voicemail?
If I were willing to abandon Apple’s ecosystem, I’d be paralyzed by the choice between Nokia and HTC’s respective Lumias.
So nice to see OS-enforced rounded corners coming to the iPhone. Even if it’s a bit late, and antithetical to the white iPhone.
Just as the world mourns Twitter for iPad, @echofon releases an update that crashes at launch on iPad 1. Well done!
Don’t want to sound like a snake oil customer, but my Home button has been less annoying since iOS 6. Or it’s just the cold weather?
I find it hard to believe.
The kind of over-engineering crap that makes me dislike Tweetbot: can’t find a way to turn off smart quotes. Keep it simple.
I need an ambulance. Right now I’m feeling like I don’t need to get an iPhone 5 at all — and that cannot be a way for me to feel, can it?
It’s a full-time job and Apple’s never gonna give itself the means to catch up.
Toujours agréable de passer une demi-journée à contourner des bugs introduits par une nouvelle version de l’OS.
RT @stroughtonsmith: iOS 6 adds a Bluetooth API that allows devices show your Notification Center messages; would have been perfect for an iPod nano watch…
C’est trop con, à une époque j’aurais probablement été assez blogueur-influent pour pouvoir me faire prêter un Windows Phone.
How soon will iOS 6’s sharing panel on an average iPhone be so crowded as to be unusable, Services menu-style?
I’m much more bored with the iPhone than the iPad. Wonder if it’s beginning to show that the iPhone was born as a bastardized mini iPad.
Calendar no longer shows the spinner after you edit an event in iOS 6. Does that mean it’s finally smart enough to sync in the background?
RT @asymco: iPhone 4S was sold to 0.57% of the population of the countries it launched during first weekend. iPhone 5 was sold to 0.71%.
I… had no idea Instagram ever had live filters. (But then, I always take my photos with the Camera app and import them.)
Just found out via Reddit that if you delete the Podcasts app, the Music app sprouts back its Podcasts category. I’m almost happy right now.
Passbook should be a background functionality you access via the Notification Center. Or maybe in Reminders.
No Instagram, though.
