This seems like a cool addition to Swift 4.2:

This is a handy round up of all the new stuff relating to notifications in iOS 12:

Today it's one week since I gave up caffeine. I had mild headaches for about 3 days, and struggled to wake up for about 5 days. Four days in I wanted to give up but I'm glad I didn't!


I tried to write a 7-day email course in 7 days. Here's what happened.

Early in December I took some time off from my job at Ghost to recover from shingles. In case you haven't heard about shingles, it's basically an adult version of chicken pox, and usually affects older people with compromised immune systems. It comes with a rash, and severe nerve pain that can last for weeks, or even months. For the first week I had shingles I spent most of my time lying immobile on …

One of my goals for 2016 is to find a sport or exercise I enjoy doing. I've been running on and off for the past couple of years, but I find it so boring that I keep giving up. Rather than pushing myself to do something I don't want to, I've been looking for a fun way to get more exercise.

  1. I paid $1500 for an iPhone X 6 months ago, and yet the camera app regularly freezes—often while recording a video. How about a fix for that?
  2. How about improving third-party keyboard which are still janky as ever?
  3. Faster processing of builds in iTunes Connect would be nice
  4. Wireless debugging on device is really awesome, except it barely works. How about the new version of Xcode doesn't keep losing its connection to my iPhone, so I have to carry the cable around anyway?

We released a big update to the Exist Web app recently! We've had mostly positive feedback, which is awesome. It feels great to have this launched.


Last night I watched an episode of Stories from Norway: The Musical with trepidation, but I needn't have been worried. It was excellent.
