And almost impossible to do cleanly..!
One good example is Notesnook which is a nice product and worth using. I broadly understand that if a user opts for pro version and then gets downgraded to basic (free) tier due to non-payment, existing data that is specific for pro version (e.g. attachments, images, full page and selection based clips, tags etc.), in Notesnook, will be retained and made accessible to the user. I still do not gave clarity whether existing data in private vault is retained and made accessible. Also, what will happen to recurring reminders of Notesnook pro, after getting downgraded to basic (free), is also not clear to me.
The massive 80% discount to Indian customers is also scary to me. I guess that the 80% discount is only for the first year. What can happen to the pricing during subsequent years?

I'm starting to reach the conclusion that social media may not be for me. All of the anger, rage, and name calling is exhausting and I'm tempted to move over to my blog and delete all of my social media accounts. 😣 It's a lot of work blocking people and "curating" my feed when I don't have to be on here at all. 🤷

Drivers and firmware also need regular updates. Just like regular applications, they contain bugs that need to be fixed. Until recently, this was quite complicated for Intune-managed devices because there was no native tool to manage driver and firmware updates.
Fortunately, this is no longer the case and Intune can natively manage driver and firmware updates. Driver and firmware updates can now be approved manually or set to automatically approve after a set number of days for recommended updates.
With this setting, you can be in control of driver and firmware updates. And even if you enable automatic approval of recommended drivers, you can still periodically review the list and reject those that have been automatically approved, or alternatively, approve those that have not been automatically approved.
How do you manage driver and firmware updates?

Well shit. #SolidExplorer, the android file explorer I've used for YEARS, seems to have a broken smb implementation. One account works, the other one does not. Complains about something openssh something wrong block length. That sucks. I really liked it.

Yesterday's #AndroidAppRain brought you 121 updated and 4 added apps at F-Droid:
* Next Player: a simple material you video player
* OpenBike: a lightweight NextBike client
* Revengate: a steampunk roguelike dungeon crawling game
* Warmongr: list bribetakers and warmongers
Meiner Meinung nach ist das nicht unbekant aber viele meinen sie häten nichts zu verbergen. Doch Fitnessdaten sind sehr persönlich und geben u.a. auch dein Standorte wie dein Wohnort weiter. Von vielen wird ignoriert wie verratend & kommerziell wertvoll diese Daten sind und die ohne Zustimmung gesammelt werden.

Slingshot’s playful new #app lets you ‘sling’ quick photos to friends: https://techcrunch.com/2023/09/13/slingshots-playful-new-app-lets-you-sling-quick-photos-to-friends/ #apps #socialmedia
I wish task management #apps should get more playful.
What if we could pick from a handful of fun or exaggerated animations for when we mark a task as completed?
What if the task could explode? Or a Transformer™ Dinobot™ shows up and eats it? Or it bursts into confetti? Or wind whisks it away? Or a Titan from #Destiny2 flies in and smashes it with the Hammer of Proving?
So much potential to make task management more fun. #Apple
Yesterday I used Organic Maps app on my phone as an aid to navigation. Worked really well, the maps are detailed enough for hiking without being clustered.
Biggest win for me was using completely offline, just location on. This meant I hardly used much battery in the 6 hours of usage.
A little #AndroidAppRain at https://apt.izzysoft.de/fdroid today with 13 updated apps. I usually don't make a 🌧️ post for just that, but I need to point out that JellyBook changed its package name – so if you use this app, you need to uninstall and reinstall.
With @trunksapp I like how you can filter, what is included in the timeline: Just original posts, boosts and/or replies. Really changes the timeline every time you make use of the option.
As I'm on #Android, I only see, what's available here, are there interesting approaches to organizing the timeline on #iOS? And what have I missed, are there other ideas, with exciting ways of re-thinking the timeline?
I'd like to write this in English, too: Something I find increasingly interesting about #Mastodon is the different ways, in which #Apps organize the #Timeline: Even for one account it might look totally different.
Take @rodentapp for example, which shows the accounts that have posted recently. As of yet I don't know, how/when to use it really, but it changes, how you see it. And I'm curious where it leads.
(Thread 🧵 1/4)
Bei @trunksapp gefällt mir die Möglichkeit, die Anzeige auf originale Beiträge, Boosts und/oder Antworten zu beschränken. Dadurch ergibt sich jeweils eine ganz andere Timeline.
Was mich an der wachsenden Zahl von #Apps für #Mastodon fasziniert, sind die Unterschiede bei der Darstellung der Timeline(s). Selbst ein und derselbe Account sieht da teilweise komplett anders aus und es kann sich sogar lohnen, mehrere Apps im Wechsel zu nutzen.
Besonders ist mir das durch die noch recht junge @rodentapp aufgefallen. Die finde ich total spannend, auch wenn ich noch nicht weiß, ob/wie hilfreich es wirklich ist.

Review time again! Here's a concise look at the third party app Fedilab:
You can use it with Mastodon accounts (including forks like Glitch), PeerTube accounts, Pixelfed accounts and many other types of Fediverse account.
It's got a really nice array of options if you dig down into the settings menus, it does a lot of things that the official apps don't do. I've tried to summarise the good stuff in the review.
Afaict the conversation on #digitizationOfLife has *only* happened retrospectively. As a global digital society we can now design our lives. It is easy to imagine a more #thrivable future than our current #dystopia. Maybe every activity we do *shouldn't* be intermediated by #apps and app stores?
Better concepts, please? Take the mic!
After I stopped playing Diablo tonight (3 more levels to go!), made dinner, and watched the new Ahsoka episode, I started trying out this game Gnollhack on Android (maybe it's on iOS too?)
It's basically Nethack. A lot like DCSS. It's fun as hell. I'm playing casual mode - no score. But there's saving, and it's just a really great mobile roguelike. I'm a gnoll bandit named Kuglskag, as shown in the first screenshot below.
The second screenshot is the Worn Items screen, which is similar to the look of your inventory (in your backpack). And you can only carry so much before you become too burdened- which makes things tough for an item hoarder like me, 🤣
The last two screenshots are the very cool, stylized Common Commands and Additional Commands screens. Check out those rad icons.
I'll definitely be playing a lot more of this.

Best iPhone / MacOS app for keeping a very basic "journal"? I was just going to use vim to write text in md files on my desktop but not working.
- data only on my devices or iCloud
- very usable. I'm low vision designers love low contrast.
- focus on just typing stuff. I don't need hardly any formatting options.
- good iphone experience
- no user monitoring/spying (duh)
I absolutely love Sunsama and how it takes care of your valuable time. There are no priority labels other than time.
From time blocking apps I have used first Sunsama, then Akiflow, then TickTick. All of them have pros and cons, but now that I have returned to Sunsama after one year I've seen it's improved since I last tried it.
I forgot how good it feels to actually FOCUS and see your productivity increase over time.

I’m going back and forth with Mona, Ivory and Ice Cubes. Currently sticking to Ice Cubes. I like the design of Mammoth, but it’s too limited by its features. Mastodon PWA unfortunately doesn’t work very well on webkit based browsers… I kinda dislike ”bookmarks” on home screen on an iPhone. #iPhone #Apps #MastodonApps
Ooohhh - I love iPhone #camera #apps https://mastodon.online/@9to5Mac/110985570261132392
I am glad that @firstname.lastname@example.org is considering releasing an official Misskey app for iOS! Hopefully iPadOS is included!
I believe it would be cool if some of the third-party developers were able to help out with the project. Also, I hope they include an in app payment feature to make it easier for donations or even for premium features (buying a T-shirt or hat with your Misskey handle on it would be cool).

🎨 The design has been optimised to use the bigger screen better.
⌨️ Keyboard shortcuts for more efficient use.
🪟 Multi-window support to run alongside other apps.
✨ Many improvements and bug fixes for iOS and watchOS.
Decided to just delete both of the Mastodon apps off of my phone. I don't know why but they both suddenly won't load anything. Tusky won't even let me log out, it has a spinning wheel. So I haven't uninstalled it yet, it appears to be frozen. 😆
Going to use the website instead.
