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

@SuzeMarsupial:

read notifications are an absolute scourge of everyone’s mental health, emotional wellbeing and personal relationships. and we never acknowledge that they are a business world import into our personal and intimate lives

@SuzeMarsupial:

“andrew in hr wants to know if you’ve read this email so he can judge when to start applying the threat of professional penalty for you not responding quickly enough”

ah yes, a great dynamic to introduce into love and friendship!

Um. I updated Tweetbot 2 yesterday and now right-clicking the Like button to choose which account to like from doesn’t work anymore?

@ow:

“we’re going to make iOS 12 even faster”

what about the time you made it slower secretly until you got caught

iTunes Ping didn’t quite pan out, so say hello to Photos Ping.

@maxrudberg:

Yay for the pendulum swinging back ever so slightly [twitter.com]

With notifications “grouped by topic,” I’m curious if this is the year I can tell iOS to beep me for Instagram message notifications but ignore likes.

Doesn’t really like it, though, as I expect it would have been mentioned explicitly.

@thomholwerda:

Apple: can’t do touch on a laptop, you’ll get gorilla arm

Also Apple: hold up heavy iPads for hours on end aimed at very specific locations to play with LEGO

🤷‍♀️

As much as I’d like to be able to stack the many icons on my Desktop, it’s entirely useless to me if it can only be algorithmic.

@CraigGrannell:

“Panic is bringing Transmit to the Mac App Store. BareBones is bringing BBEdit to the Mac App Store.” Hmm. Have the sandboxing requirements been changed, then? Good to for once hear about pro apps coming to MAS rather than fleeing it.

@tapbot_paul:

Phase 1 of bringing UIKit to Mac is telling developers not to work on new Mac apps until next year.

@danielpunkass:

I speculated that “Marzipan” or whatever would need to be vetted by Apple on public apps, and how could they hide it? Thus the sneak peek.

I need to set back up my old iPhone 6 to install the beta, and WHY DOES ACTIVATING AN IPHONE STILL REQUIRE A SIM CARD.

Ohh, I never realized apps had been able to categorize their notifications since iOS 10. But iOS 12 (beta 1) doesn’t seem to add any settings depending on the notification category for third-party apps 😠

@stroughtonsmith:

Marzipan is wild. It’s running the UIKit apps with XPC & remote rendering. Not quite Mac OS [Classic.app], but it totally feels like an alien OS hiding in the background

@stroughtonsmith:

Photos feels like a native app. Marzipan apps are distinctly UIKit — take a wrong turn somewhere, and you’re in the iOS navigation controller UI. Very curious to see how & if that changes by next year, and how developers respond to it [twitter.com]

@developar:

When Samsung does make emojis out of humans (ARemoji) vs. Apple’s (Memoji)

Ha!

@wilshipley:

Well #3 is not a good sign.

@danielpunkass:

Amid all the glee about Apple’s new “support for free trials,” I wrote a long-ass breakdown of how they still don’t: [bitsplitting.org]

@hturan:

Live image detection with iOS 12 & ARKit 2. Display digital information attached to physical objects. Feels like playing in the future ✨ #arkit #ios12

@michelmcbride:

This is hilarious. I hope it’s misdirection and the real bug is sewn into their clothing while they sleep [twitter.com]

14 June

@stroughtonsmith:

I feel like if one were going to make a new Swift-only UI framework across macOS and iOS, you would have done that instead of bringing UIKit to the Mac [twitter.com]

17 June

@stroughtonsmith:

Amazingly, the legacy version of Speed (Speed 2) works entirely as-is in Marzipan; imagine an alternate reality where iOS 7 never happened, and apps like this were what you could expect for Marzipan to bring to macOS 🤣

@shen:

An incredibly intuitive way to view MRI slices, using the VIVE Tracker. Awesome work from @VicePacket39
