I have been looking at Twist from the company behind the popular ToDoist app.

Their blog post talks about the typical Slack problems and how they, as a remote company, wrestled with the real-time…

@loosewire InstaViz is a blast from the past! Glen Low, the author, is a friend of mine from Perth. He picked up a job at Apple starting in 2017.

We had lunch late in 2016 before he moved to CA…

You use screenshots and app previews to visually communicate your app’s user experience through images or a short video captured from your app…

Well, I have to retract it - I'm certain that Apple had a rule about requiring devices in frame but haven't managed to find it. Anecdotally, asking in a local iOS Dev slack, one guy said he got pinged…

Just saw this on BetaList. Serendip really indulging in that callout blocks style of going outside the frame!

Absolutely, am going to rock the store with plenty of huge text with the touchme.me pivot and all-new screens.

Thanks @awwstn, that's interesting in that the first one violates Apple's guidelines that you have to show a device (or part of) in every screen. I like their callout approach too.

You just reminded me of a rather ironic tale. I used the graphviz diagram generator to generate actual database diagrams in my LevelDB book. Unfortunately, I revised one of the diagrams, which was…

Thanks @maguay for the quick fix to the markdown.

That's (a part of) the app workflow. I use Doxygen, which is more often associated with C++ code documentation. It lets me have markdown pages which…

Great examples, thanks @maguay
T he Kindle one is the first I've seen where there are two phone frames in a single screenshot. I just need to finish a couple of features in v1.3.0 and can submit it…

Time to confess a guilty secret I've had for years.

I really should be someone who loves Tinderbox and uses it regularly.

I love graphs and visual layout of thinking. I sketch box-and-arrow diagrams…

I'm asking from a frustrated not-a-marketer perspective.

Are there any app store pages that really sing to you?

Also, do you look on desktop, iPad or Phone?

For historical embarrassment reasons…

Nice to see lots of fans of Carrd - nobody has pointed out that they often have sales around Black Friday and other times when you can buy Pro upgrades at a significant discount.

I keep getting my quotes wrong because other platforms don't require a space after the greater-than.

I'm paranoid about any suggestion that Touchgram may be tracking users, so don't even use basic event logging to determine which features are being used. One of the reasons is the Australian…

I'm rather fond of Tinderbox, a Mac-only hypertext product.
You can use it as a simple mind-mapper but it goes well beyond that with treemap, hyperbolic and crosstab views.

The data is stored in a…

I wouldn't rule Evernote out.
If you have public notebooks, people can use them without paid accounts, so for cash-strapped startups that brings the price down - just use the web version.

I am a long-term Evernote user with nearly 43K notes clipped and written.
I use it heavily on Mac and Windows desktop and iPhone, where I have some notebooks stored offline.
