Episode 341: This Went Pretty Viral

Daniel and Manton follow up on RapidWeaver 8 shipping without Mac App Store support. Daniel talks about his recent work on FastScripts, and they talk about the sometimes surprising value of “less successful” apps. They react to Marco Arment’s announcement that Overcast will support podcasts embedding a “payment” tag in show notes, and indulge in a little analysis of Twitter’s handling of the fiasco around Alex Jones.
