This is a great post about API DX

Posted on Mar 27, 2015 in Links, Process, Programming

It’s hot to talk about how improving API User Experience can make end users happy. UX is important to consider with APIs and with any kind of development. But sometimes we forget about the middle men and women who are often the true intended audience and customers. When developing an application programming interface, or API, it is essential to keep developer experience or DX as a priority in everything we do.

Apple WatchKit – simple to implement

Posted on Mar 14, 2015 in iOS, Programming

I tried out Apple WatchKit to bring Sorting Thoughts on an Apple Watch and I’m really impressed how simple it is. It takes me only a couple of hours to show the most important task thoughts of a Sorting Thoughts collection in a glance and special app view:

Sorting Thoughts on an Apple  Watch

The layout of an app is very simple and focused on the important information. For the glance view Apple advises a couple of default layouts and I think it is a good idea to use one of this layouts because there are well thought and fit for the watch concept. What is interesting is to see that the upper glance layout group always have a right margin –  see also the Xcode 6.2 screenshots below. I think it is not understated to see over 10k apps if the Apple Watch will be sold in April 2015.

Sorting Thoughts for iOS completed

Posted on Dec 11, 2014 in iOS, Programming

Woohoo! Sorting Thoughts for iOS is now available in the App Store :-)

It feels great to have this milestone behind me. And I look forward to many feedback and to the next release of the desktop version. With Sorting Thoughts for Mac and PC 2.0 the sync cycle will be closed and Sorting Thoughts will be a great tool on desktop and iOS devices with a secure and private sync service.
