It's not just for iPhone anymore. This time it's personal.

A new thread to discuss all things IOS.

iPhone, iPod and iPad...

Paid support for rounded rectangles?

What a journey.
no silly. I am actually of the opinion that the physical attributes of iDevices are far less important than the marriage of the two. (soft/hard wares) But, not wanting to get into that part... too early.

FBI denies it. Well, technically, they said that there was no evidence proving that they did it.

Scott Forstall, head of iOS development, is leaving Apple in 2013. Ive in charge of iOS? Less skeuomorphism, more gloss to come I guess. No idea what this bodes for usability.

DPBD, ah, Ive is just taking the Human Interface lead. That's better. I don't wanna think about Ive touching XCode!

A minimalist XCode. One window. No, no windows! Windows are your father's paradigm. Just start typing and exactly what you need to see will be displayed in CNC-routed Helvetica Neue Light.

As long as I can get a calendar app without fake leather, paper scraps, and stitching skewmorphism, I'll be happy.

Gruber linked this piece recently, and it's really really good:

Best list I've seen of the real, serious, functional usability problems in the current Mac/iOS ecosystem.

So, my over-the-air iOS 6.1 update has been going on for 2.5 hours now. I'm guessing that it's never going to finish. Downloader emptor.

Jailbreak is here!!!! Cydia's servers are saturated, but I nonetheless managed to get maps opener and now instead of crapple maps, I get google maps. YAY!

What a journey.
Now that I have upgraded my kids to new iPod Touches, I have three iPod Touch 2nd Gens.
I've been getting more exposed to iOS. And not that happy at the moment. I keep trying to find apps, get them, download them and they don't work with my iPod Touches.
That alone is a pain. Can one filter/limit the iOS app store to show compatible apps?
And, is there a site that lists the best/top apps for iOS 4.2.1 or compatible?

Funny, I was just thinking about all the single tasks you could repurpose old iOS devices for. Thinking of doing a Kickstarter for one.

Ooh! I have some ideas for that.

In addition to the "classic Slashdot": Run a Beowulf cluster!
