Will Super Mario Run be free for Android?
I’ve been watching with mild disgust and very little surprise as the iOS community reveals itself to be largely made up of whingeing entitled little kids whose mummys and daddys clearly didn’t teach about how commerce works. It’s happened before, with the likes of Tweetbot, and now it’s Super Mario Run’s turn. A lot […]
The Brightness control in iOS 7’s Control Center sucks
In iOS 7 the background dims when Control Center is opened, making Brightness adjustments into guesswork. Another crappy design decision by Apple?
Why I won’t buy a TapTapTap app ever again
TapTapTap make money using IAPs. Tapbots make money by selling their app. TapTapTap thinks Tapbots are ripping you off. I disagree.

I pointed out that Apple has tremendous control over my data now, partly via iCloud but especially Remote Wipe. What happened to Mat is an example of why people warn about over-reliance on […]
The astonishing entitlement issues of (some) App Store customers
This week Tapbots released a long-awaited iPad version of what is easily my favourite iOS Twitter client ever, Tweetbot. I haven’t yet tried it because I’ve been trying to limit my access to Twitter to just one device so that it’s effectiveness as a time-waster and a distraction is somewhat mitigated, but I suspect I’ll […]
I like going to an Apple Store
Going to an Apple Store can be fun, even to get something fixed.
Pixelmator: they’re not ripping you off
With the launch of the Mac App Store recently, Pixelmator, amongst a few other existing Mac apps, went Mac App Store Only. This means that eventually (once the application reaches version 2.0) users that already bought it from their website will stop getting free updates through the app, and will need to ‘transition’ to the […]
