A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 189. This week I ran across a great piece over on Cult of Mac by developer Graham Bower. In it he talked about the struggle many developers have to make a buck in the store and how that struggle can lead to developing apps in ways that don’t always put the user or app experience first. To help Graham presents a “manifesto”, “10 rules for classy apps“. In this episode I go over those rules and explain why I think if developers followed the manifesto our Apps and the App Store would be a much better place.

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 529. I’m just getting back from vacation and trying to wade through everything that happened at WWDC while I was away. As I work on that I thought it would be a good time to deep dive into Apple’s Photos app with my friend David Sparks (MacSparky). David literally wrote the guide to OS X Photos, so he was the prefect person to ask about transitioning to Photos, understanding the changes, learning about the new editing tools, using iCloud Photo Library, and more.
