1. Cuphead for iOS

    December 18, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Cuphead is out for iOS just in time for your holiday travel. $5 seems like a good deal.

    By way of Touch Arcade.

    Note: it seems to have issues on my iPhone X. Maybe wait until the first bug fix before dropping a fiver on it.

  2. The New MindNode 5

    December 17, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I’ll be honest, I hate most mind-mapping apps. A good mapping app does more than just put text on lines. It should make it easy to capture, organize, and then use ideas. MindNode is one of a handful of apps that I can recommend.


    The new MindNode is just ...

  3. Sleep Cycle Adds iPhone X Mode

    December 16, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I recently mentioned my concerns for using Sleep Cycle with my iPhone X because it leaves the screen on through the night and OLED has a limited lifetime. Several of the terrific Nerds on Draft listeners pointed out that Sleep Cycle works even when the phone is put to sleep ...

  4. Tuning Up Your iPhone for the Holidays

    December 10, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    It happens. Whenever I have a vacation, there's inevitably in-between time where I fidget and fiddle. Usually it's at the start of the vacation and the end. Or maybe it's when I'm traveling or standing around in a store line. Come to think of it, it ...

  5. Clean Text for iOS Gets Files Support

    December 04, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    While I miss TextTool for iOS, I'm relieved to see that Clean Text continues to get updates. The most recent updates added a new dark mode and a couple of new text filters (like removing empty lines and characters). The biggest addition in version 2.6 is the a ...

  6. Dark Black on the iPhone X

    November 27, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    One of the stand out attributes of the new iPhone X is the deep dark blacks possible on the OLED screen. Unlike previous iPhone models, where blacks are muted by back-lighting, iPhone X black is the near absence of light. Recently, several apps have released theme updates that take advantage ...

  7. Calca Goes Dark and Other Awesome App Updates for iOS

    November 22, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Another great feature of the iPhone X is that I get to see what apps are still supported. Luckily, many of my favorites are getting updates to support the new screen and FaceID. Some are just getting around to multi-tasking updates. It's all good. Here's a few worth ...

  8. A Few iPhone X Gestures

    November 21, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    The iPhone X is very good but it's still an awkward adjustment to a missing home button. So here are the gestures to internalize:

    Wake the screen — Just tap on the screen lightly.

    Access Camera from the Lock Screen — Swipe from right to left anywhere on the lock screen ...

  9. 1Blocker Settings for Rune Scripts

    November 16, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    If you're not using 1Blocker, I can highly recommend it. I use it on iOS and my Mac. While it only works with Safari, it's a pretty good shield against website poo. The latest update adds defense against bitcoin mining scripts.

    I use it for more than just ...

  10. Rego Goes Pro

    November 02, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Rego is one of my favorite location apps for iOS. If you are unfamiliar with Rego, it’s kind of like Foursquare but private and with more utility. I use it to plan vacations, road trips, and hiking. I even used it to plan house hunting by dropping markers on ...
