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.

Pocket Sized Podcast 149: Findery with John Fox

Subscribe in iTunes

Overview

Findery is a wonderful location, culture, and story discovery service with a new iOS app for iPhone. John Fox of Findery joins us to talk about how it is used for sharing stories, tracking interests across the world, and discovering things in a new way. John Nemo washes your iPhone’s mouth out with soap on World’s Shortest Reviewcast.

Introducing John Fox [01:10–02:40]

John Fox is a friend of ours from days long past, known for MemoryMiner and other development work. Scott and John talk about the old days.

MemoryMiner

Findery [02:45–08:44]

John is currently working at Findery, a social discovery app and web service that helps people find and share their location, culture, and interest stories from around the world. John talks about what Findery is and how it enables this type of storytelling.

Findery UI Overview[08:45–15:50]

John leads us through the Findery UI, which has been carefully laid out to aid in sharing and discovery.

Travelling and capturing memories and stories[15:50–17:20]

John recalls travels of his and how he was able to record audio soundscapes, and how we all have iOS devices now that are capable of gathering photos, videos, and recordings of everywhere we go. He also talks about tweeting experiences versus capturing them and being able to share them more richly later.

Users and content are what make discovery services compelling[17:20–18:47]

The community is what makes apps like Findery successful, and Findery has worked hard on getting community and getting content into Findery through the web site and now the iOS app.

Making mobile apps discoverable and understandable[19:30–25:15]

Ronnie and John talk about how to make app features discoverable on mobile apps and how the Findery team has worked to try to make it easier for new users.

Findery for iOS UI and translating Findery for the web to mobile[28:48–31:52]

John talks about how making the app accessible to people whose iPhones are their computers was important to Findery.

Charity: water

Findery business model[31:52–36:08]

Findery is a free app, so what’s the business model? John explains, and also talks about the Findery team and a little bit about their financial situation.

Fun discoveries on Findery[36:08–42:34]

Scott asks John what some of the neater things he’s discovered due to Findery are.

Private notes, journaling, and sharing[42:34–45:58]

Ronnie asks John about some of the other sharing aspects of Findery, such as private notes, as well as possible integration with other apps.

Contact information and Links[45:58–48:38]

John tells us how to find him (and us) on Findery, and on Twitter as well.

Pocket Sized Podcast 133: Retinally pleasing iOS 7 experiences

Subscribe in iTunes

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.

I’m sorry, but this is a bit of a rant cast. Ronnie rants about the how messed up his attempts to buy an iPhone 5s were. Scott rants about the photo and video problem in the iOS world, and then follows that up with rants about Evernote and the iOS 7 app switcher. Also, an App Folder on Boinx PhotoPresenter. Can’t stand your iPad? John Nemo can, in World’s Shortest Reviewcast, with one iPad case and one iPad stand.
