Week in review and links of note
What we published this week
This week, we interviewed Nik Fletcher of Realmac Software, makers of Clear and Ember. Nik shared his Mac and iPhone setups, as well as some great insights into what it’s like to work with Realmac. Nik explains what he does at Realmac better than I can:
Officially, I’m “Product Manager” but as a small company, I’m involved in pretty-much everything we do: from concept, design, and all the way through to shipping and marketing our apps.
Quick Tip: Use iOS keyboard shortcuts to save time.. While Stephen was in fancy San Francisco for WWDC, Chris Gonzales stepped in to cover this week’s quick tip. Chris shows us how easy it is to set up and use keyboard shortcuts in iOS. This is a feature that I personally need to use more. Thanks, Chris!
WWDC, OS X Yosemite, and iOS 8
In case you didn’t hear, WWDC happened this week, and it was a good one. A lot has been written in response to all of the exciting news that Apple dropped during the keynote on Monday, but here are a few overviews from our friends:
- Shawn Blanc’s awesome roundup.
- Federico and Graham from Macstories have you covered if you’re looking for an in-depth look at iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite.
- And, if you prefer to listen instead of read, the gentlemen from The Prompt did a great job of going through the exciting news, live from San Francisco.
