I'm a software developer with a focus on Apple's platform (iOS, Mac OS X).
More information about me is available at my website. If you're into Twitter, you can follow me.
You can ask me here for personal or professional purpose.
If this is true, and I suspect it is, I think it lends credence to what I’ve suspected all along: iOS 7 is not quite the coherent product of a forceful design vision that we’re led to believe, but rather a somewhat uneven and scattershot response to what Apple perceives as the general direction of its ecosystem as increasingly driven by independent developers. For Apple, a company that has generally prided itself (modulo a Sherlock here and there) on a policy of “push, not pull” (as one manager once put it to me when I worked there), it seems to me that this represents a bit of a sea change. I’m not saying it’s entirely a negative thing—I’ve always thought that for Apple to remain relevant it was going to have to open itself up to more outside influences—but it may be a bit of a bumpy transition.
I’ve been using Any.DO for a long time. Interesting to know this story.
