This week, Apple released iOS 7 to the public, and it was massive.
There were millions of tweets and posts about iOS 7 24 hours after the release, a lot of developers got to publish the updates they worked on for the past 100 days, with a lot of new updates appearing in the store. I went into the store and took a look at the updates-
Out of 90 apps I constantly use, 40 were updated and half of the updates also featured a beautiful new design for iOS 7. I was surprised(I was expecting a lot more) that only 2 updates were “paid upgrades”(the app’s update was released as a separate app) – Reeder 2 and Clear for iOS 7.
I have been using iOS 7 on both my iPhone and iPad every day since the first beta arrived and here are the features I like the most.
While writing my Workflows article and getting links to my workflows, I noticed Ole Zorn added a nice Workflows Directory to the Editorial Website . The Directory has workflows shared by Editorial users and a “Staff Picks” section to showcase the best workflows on the directory. I made a workflow to search the directory that you can get here. You can also found all of my workflows here and great workflows by Federico Viticci here.
As I finished writing my Workflows article yesterday, Federico Viticci published his Editorial book to the iBooks Store. The book is his Editorial review from MacStories.net, reimagined as an iBook with 20 more workflows, 5 videos and interactive design. As Federico said, it’s like a ”Director’s Cut“ version of his review. Here’s the book’s description from the iBooks Store:
” An extended edition of an article originally published on MacStories.net, “Writing On The iPad: Text Automation with Editorial” contains an in-depth review and detailed guide to Editorial, a revolutionary Markdown text editor for iPad with unique automation features. After reading this book, you’ll have a new perspective on what is possible to accomplish on an iPad with Markdown and text automation. “
The book is just 2.99$ on the iBooks Store for a limited time launch sale and it’s amazing so go and grab your copy now.
“It uses the App.net API, but not the timeline. It takes pictures, but isn’t really a photo app. It integrates with Ohai, but isn’t another location check-in app. It renders beautiful maps throughout, but isn’t about navigation. Some of the features I’m most proud of in the app wouldn’t be the same without App.net. “
I liked his article and his app idea and I suggest you check it out.
