If you’re tired of your android-loving friends telling you how little iOS can do, Alex Guyot is the master of iOS automation that you need to know. Alex joins Ronnie and Scott to talk about iOS URL schemes, x-callback-urls, Launch Center Pro and Drafts, and exactly how useful or not chaining 25 actions and 7 apps together really is. John Nemo has the perfect bluetooth keyboard for you in World’s Shortest Reviewcast if typing in all these automation actions is causing your fingers to fall off.
Scott and Ronnie have some New Year’s Resolutions they’d like iOS 7 to make for 2014 as they wonder how tiny Jony Ive’s fingers could possibly be. John Nemo cases the joint and has some padded advice for the New Year and the new iPad Air.
Ronnie is back, just in time to keep all of our listeners from defecting. Speaking of just in time, need a good calendar and or reminders app? We talk about them, as well as Tweetbot 3, and go on rant regarding the whole concept of paying for new versions of iOS apps and people who get mad about it. And John Nemo talks into the mic while typing on a bluetooth keyboard on World’s Shortest Reviewcast.
Scott and Peter have a quick Evernote follow up, and then talk about App Store pricing and in-app purchases based on an article by Lex Friedman in Macworld. John Nemo’s got a Hard Shell but it’s not because he’s cranky, it’s the World’s Shortest Reviewcast.
Peter reviews The Norm, a vent mounted dash mount for your iPhone. Scott and Peter then talk about Apple luring Australians to their deaths via Maps, Apple TV updates are coming, and how they sync their iOS devices and how they use iTunes with them (or not). John Nemerovski brings a World’s Shortest Reviewcast full of accessories ranging from cases to photo lenses in his short holiday gift guide.
Scott and Peter review the Genius Ultra-thin Bluetooth Keyboard and the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard for use with iPads, and then start debating the merits of tablets vs. laptops, and the anger towards Apple’s Maps app. And John Nemo gets bookish with a couple iPhone related tomes that might improve your iPhone experience in Nemo’s World’s Shortest Reviewcast.
