Today it’s been 100 days since the release of Yonks! Thanks to everybody who downloaded my day counter app and spread the word about it. What a nice little thrill ride so far! 🎉
weekly recommendations from culture, tech, media, design, and science, as rendered in text, image, video, or audio; also, a super dumb pun on my name
It‘s good to have @fimoculous back blogging – even though he calls it weekly recommendations and sends these via email. 😉
„Congratulations! We’re pleased to let you know that your app, Yonks, has been approved for the App Store.“ 🎉
(It’s not released yet. This will take a couple of more days to finish the website, press material and so on. But, yeah, it’s almost done! 💪🏻)
Tweetbot 5 is such a nice app. A shame it’s based on and build for a platform, whose management doesn’t value and encourage a rich ecosystem of third party clients and instead pushes a „one size fits all“ approach for millions (!) of users, just because they don’t understand their own product (which could have been the centralized real time layer of the web) and how to monetize it.
In the long-term their missing understanding will turn out to be a good thing, because it forced us relatively early to create truly open and independent microblogging alternatives, which will replace their privately owned predecessor sooner rather than later.
