Episode 342: Complaining For Ten Years

Manton and Daniel catch up after a couple weeks off. They talk about Manton’s release of Sunlit 2.2, and return to inevitable complaints about App Store Review uncertainties. They compare notes on their mutual lack of interest in developing for Android, and the extent to which an unliked programming language can affect interest in platforms. Finally, they talk about the leaked details of the forthcoming iPhone and Apple Watch. Does it hurt Apple, and should we care if it does?
