In this podcast Jon Westfall and I discuss:

  1. Apple April 20 announcements speculation
    iPad Pro
    Mini LED for 12.9 model? Meh?
    M1?
    Apple Pencil 3
    Spring loaded tip?
    Kano Harry Potter coding Kit

    Current model is interesting but too expensive. Have been very happy with Anker, Arteck, & Logitech Bluetooth keyboards for under $50
    iOS 14.5
    Unlock iPhone with mask on using Apple Watch
    iPad mini 6
    Smaller bezel, bigger screen, same overall size?
    AirTags
    How many years have we been hearing about this?
    AirPods 3
    Apple TV
    I switched to Roku years ago. Apple TV is too expensive
    New Macs
    Probably not. Usually announced during WWDC

    Apple Watch Birthday is April 24 (Next Saturday) – 2015 – 2021

FYI: How to get a replacement copy of Erica Sadun’s iOS Developer’s Cookbook

Here’s an example of a book publisher “doing the right thing” for their customers. Erica Sadun’s book, The iOS5 Developer’s Cookbook, has production process related defects. So, Pearson has corrected these errors in both the print and ebook versions and is making replacement copies available. Here’s the official announcement.

The iOS5 Developer’s Cookbook – RECALL

It has come to Pearson’s attention that problems occurred during the production process of The iOS5 Developer’s Cookbook. The scope of the error was widespread and all print and eBook versions of the first printing were affected. Pearson has corrected these errors and the title has been updated.

MobileViews Blog Back Up & Running

Had a problem with my web hosting service saying this site was using too much memory and processor resources. They cut off access to the site. I upgraded to a virtual private server service and all seems well now.

Recommendations Request for MobileAppsToday Mobile App of the Week

I launched a new weekly feature over on my day-job-blog: MobileAppsToday.com called App of the Week. The recognition cuts across all the major mobile smartphone platforms. You can find the announcement and the first App of the Week, Ilium Software’s eWallet, at…

MobileAppsToday App of the Week Category

I think I can do a pretty good job IDing apps for Windows Mobile, iPhone, and Google Android. But, since I’m not a Blackberry or Symbian Series 60 (Nokia, etc.) user, I could use some help ID-ing apps that people should know about in those areas. If you have a recommendation or a write-up on your own site, please let me know. If you look at my site, you know I provide full attribution when I find something interesting on other sites/blogs. So, I’d be happy to link to your review or commentary on app.

Of course, I would be grateful to pointers to good apps for Windows Mobile, iPhone, and Google Android too. The somewhat lesser known apps would be good. I’d like to try to give awareness of interesting products to end-users and a way for developers to make a living. Freeware or for-fee products are all fine for recommendations.

Thanks!…todd
