Pocket Sized Podcast 133: Retinally pleasing iOS 7 experiences

Retinally pleasing iPad minis are out, but they are hard to get. Everpix is dead, and Ronnie is searching for its successor. Scott disagrees with things he heard on the Talk Show about iOS 7 on older iOS devices. We clarify last time’s rant slightly, and Scott teaches Ronnie and our friend Timothy Gregoire how iPhone app icon management is done.
