It s been a slow hot summer over here
Its been a slow, hot summer over here, but were already coming up on the final stretch before the next release of iOS/macOS. Is there anything youve been working on that youd like to show off? You know the drill by now: include a screenshot if youd like a retweet!

Working on my framework for iOS / macOS apps: SimpleToast - - implementing better binding functionality. Screenshots are not that fancy in that case. Wrapping up a big update to Splitter - my open-source Speedrunning timer for macOS. It`s now using LiveSplitCore to keep track of splits, while still using good ol AppKit (and a touch of SwiftUI for the Welcome window) as the fully native frontend. Im working on an update for to release alongside iOS 15 that takes advantage of the always on display on Apple Watch among other things. Im working on a reference app for Magic: The Gathering! It uses the Scryfall API and tries to be the fastest way to look up cards and rulings. I also created FloatingPromptTextField using the new FocusState on iOS 15. It`s the SwiftUI version of the floating label text field UX pattern. Ive just released a HackerNews client I was working for a year its not feature-complete, but its now usable enough to go public Its based on AppKit and it supports login/voting most clients dont support them. RTs are greatly appreciated Thx :-)

Thank you Steve! Ive just finished adapting my score tracker app for the Mac. Just finished ObjC Swift rewrite of Tiny Player for Mac, my minimalistic take on a MP3 player. iOS version also 100% rewritten, pending release. Happy to modernize & prepare ground for SwiftUI & new features. This summer Im updating for iOS 15 with that bunch of new APIs as well as making accessibility better. Apparently many colors are breaking when using high contrast in dark mode Working on ContactsBot which will release with iOS 15 Beta: Ive been finalizing an application dedicated to ultra-trail running which supports very long run recording (>48h), metrics and cartography display on the Apple Watch. It can also be used for standard outdoor trails. Im looking for beta testers: I know I`m OCD so I spent hours tweaking the Light Theme color of on macOS Monterey beta 3. I`m happy with the outcome so far During this time I`ve added a bunch of nice features to Text to Speech, Eyes detection for FXs, native iOS14 color pickers , Invert color by channels filter, heaps of contextual menus and export/import projects using new Apple Archive framework I`m experimenting with the HealthKit API for visualizing running workouts. It also enables me to share basic workout details with friends (Apple`s Activity app doesn`t do a great job there). Ive also been working on something different: keyRead, an open access control platform based on the ESP32 with BLE and Wi-Fi Am reserving this retweet offer for my future app. Just learning to code now. Have few app ideas that solve the drawbacks current apps on App Store have.

About to test flight A few days ago, I released my app on the App Store. Ive been working on a complete rewrite for in SwiftUI. Its still in a very early stage and looks pretty rough.

Since you`re working with multiple windows on Catalyst, did you ever run into a scenario where the main window refuses to show? I can`t get it to reliably reproduce yet, but something to do with minimising and keeping it longer in the background

Windows needs that app

When is this version releasing? Looking fire!

Also, I love reading your Pastel updates

It is looking great!

Ill go first: Pastel spent the summer moving its 24,000 line codebase to Swift & Optimized for Mac, giving me the opportunity to give every little corner of the app a once-over for whats looking to be a solid v2.0. It also got an exploratory Windows 11/UWP prototype
