Catch the livestream of my appearance on the iMore show, talking all about Siri Shortcuts in iOS 13. I even demo building a shortcut live – but listening along is still good too 🙂
I’ll be cohosting a new show with Mikah Sargent, which will be airing on TWiT. Get all the details – it’s going to be fun!
Alex and Matthew talk about the close of the beta season – and the close of the show.
Matthew hosts special guest Julia Skott – quite literally in his home. Julia’s all about Android, but uses an iPad and Mac, so the two have a lot to talk about. Plus Julia is just amazing.
In another guest appearance on the iPad Pros podcast, Tim Chaten had me on to talk all about the next version of Shortcuts that is built into iOS 13. (Make sure to listen to episodes 41 & 42 for last year’s recap as well).
While Alex was away, Matthew interviewed developer Greg Pierce, creator of Drafts and the x-callback-url spec that kicked off deeper interest in iOS automation.
After a few weeks, Alex & Matthew are back to talk about the beta experiences so far. Matthew hung out in Apple Business Chat, Alex gets excited about Automation triggers, and everyone is assigned a book for summer reading.
Alex and Matthew are back from WWDC (for real this time) and are VERY excited about Shortcuts. Alex also briefly shouts about the Mac Pro, and Matthew needs a monitor.
