Continuing on from last week’s episode about iOS podcast client apps, Vic Hudson of App Story Podcast loves Downcast, Ronnie loves Castro, and Scott loves and hates the Evernote iOS app. Ok, Evernote’s not a podcast app. But Scott still wants to talk about the lack of text color formatting as well as the great business card scanner in Evernote anyway. Also Ronnie and Vic talk about some of their podcast listening habits, and John Nemo refuels your mojo with the Mojo Refuel Aqua S battery case in World’s Shortest Reviewcast.

Pocket Sized Podcast 155: And Then Our Heads Exploded

Subscribe in iTunes

This podcast is the longest Pocket Sized Podcast ever: the WWDC 2014 Keynote was huge. Two hours huge (which is normal) and packed full of amazing things that people have been hoping for for years (which is not always normal). Vic Hudson of App Story Podcast, and developer of Money Pilot joins Ronnie and Scott to try to make sense of just a tiny portion of what iOS 8 will bring. At least John Nemo knows how to keep it short as he talks about books for learning Adobe Elements in World’s Shortest Reviewcast.
