Unpopular opinion: the last good smartphone was the Nokia N900.
Everything else after that went downhill.
Nokia N900 had actual Linux, with apt, where the user had root access.
Nokia N900 could run Qt/GTK applications such as Pidgin.
Nokia N900 is still usable today with modern Linux (running with Devuan).
Nokia N900 was basically a small-size computer instead of the current “computer but functions as toy" market.
Long live Nokia N900.
I never pay attention to new features in #iOS but this new crop feature just popped up and seems kinda nice.
In the aftermath of #Apple's recent #software update, #iOS 17, police departments in various states, including Massachusetts, Illinois, and California, are sounding the alarm with an urgent advisory directed at parents. The cause for concern revolves around a new #feature, "NameDrop," automatically activated in the latest update. NameDrop introduces the capability to share contact information when iPhones are nearby. While this feature is innovative, law enforcement...
I've just put together a new wiki page for the AppState project. It's called "Managing Application Access with AppState". In it, you'll find info on how to handle shared states and dependencies, and how to use unique IDs. Plus, it gives you a rundown of how AppState's storage mechanism works. Feedback and thoughts are always welcome! I'm going to keep working on AppState's documentation in the meantime.
The person got logged out from their Instagram account. After logging back in only some of their drafts were working. Some were just black and tapping them resulted in an error message that the draft is unavailable and got removed, others still show the preview image but opening them doesn't work. The loading animation (circle above preview image) never ends.
What I did
- Made an encrypted full backup of the iPhone.
- Opened the backup with iTunes-Backup-Explorer (https://github.com/MaxiHuHe04/iTunes-Backup-Explorer; only works with Azul Zulu JDK on M1/M2, see https://github.com/MaxiHuHe04/iTunes-Backup-Explorer/issues/32#issuecomment-1757228458)
- Exported 'AppDomain-com.burbn.instagram' and 'AppDomainGroup-group.com.burbn.instagram'
- Used GrandPerspective (https://grandperspectiv.sourceforge.net/) to identify relevant files without getting lost in the folder structure.
- I found the preview image of the broken draft with the path "AppDomain-com.burbn.instagram/Library/Application Support/46496168/sundial/saved-drafts/01212064-95E9-4A66-AA1C-5A08E94FE3DB/resources/00A736EC-BC61-4E45-9088-AE0F65306E94.png"
- Exporting the whole backup didn't work. (still on it)
I did not find any video files. Not even the ones from the working drafts. Therefore I assume that they are stored somewhere else. Do you know where Instagram stores video files of drafts or where I could find that information? Are there other recovery options for iPhones?

As an Android user, just discovered IPhone users have to turn on "Text Message Forwarding" so they can receive/send SMS/MMS on their iPads & Macs. EU's Digital Markets Act forcing interoperability makes sense. The plethora of messaging platforms/apps that don't "interconnect" is so inefficient and frustrating

❗REVIEW 19: Pinafore web-client
1. Name meaning: apron, front cover. It’s is a creative name for a web-client. :-)
2. Love the boat icon, not sure how it relates to ice age / Mastodon, reminds me of the Flote.app logo. (sample attached)
3. UI + menu’s feels a bit chunky, like I’ve zoomed in a bit online.
4. Nice wellness option for cleaner experience.
❗ REVIEW 18:
Only 3 Mastodon web-clients left, then 22 Mastodon apps to test. Been so fun!
NB: I’m not a professional reviewer, it’s just a fun way to see what I need app-wise.
1. Whilst writing this, all three web-clients’ keyboards disappeared, works in browser, deleted homescreen shortcut web-apps.
2. Copied review into the apps, but realised a fav feature isn’t available: the enter button to create space.
3. Used #Phanpy and #Elk a lot, Pinafore not yet.
❗ REVIEW 17: Statuzer - pros and cons
1. A radio button that plays audio from Youtube videos in your feed. (I listen to white noise, so I don’t use it.) But if you want to hear what your friends are listening to, it’s great!
2. It’s filter buttons and view options on profile pages: hide replies and boosts and card view of posts.
1. Dark theme: UI contrast feels bit high.
2. Publish button is hidden top right and an odd placement to what I’m used to.
Meine Endgeräte vergessen bei ca. jedem Update dass mein*e Siri eine männliche Männerstimme hat. Ich lass mich doch nicht von einer Frau bedienen
There are too many increasingly expensive subscriptions, and - if you're like me - you probably tend to binge a single show on a single provider, just to then jump on another one. So.. why do I have so many active subscriptions at any given time?
I love it that most of my 15 apps currently live on the iOS app store are being purchased on a daily basis. None of them is a huge hit, but combined together it's not bad at all 😊 - this might be the best situation to find yourself in as an #indiedev after all: hedging your bets! #ios #development #swift #swiftui #business #apple

#iOS App #手提電話
#Apple just rolled out emergency updates for #iOS, #iPadOS, and #MacOS to tackle not one, but two pesky #WebKit bugs. They claim these bugs 'might have been exploited'—sounds reassuring, right? Pro tip: you could've switched browsers in the meantime for safety. Oh wait, that's right, you can't do that on Apple devices. But hey, it's all in the name of your comfort and security, obviously. 🤷
Since buying my #iPhone 15 Pro, I've been wondering why it can't seem to do one simple thing that my iPhone 11 could: show a modal (blocking) alert when my battery is low. Some people might find that sort of thing annoying, but my new device has died multiple times literally without warning which is far more of an issue.
According to a thread on @AppleVis, this type of alert now lives in the Dynamic Island, which my old phone didn't have. I haven't been able to verify the claim either way. But if true, the Dynamic Island has transitioned for me from being a bewilderingly pointless but ultimately harmless feature, to something that is actively taking useful information and choice away from me as a #VoiceOver user.
I've set up an automation shortcut as a replacement, encountering a silly number of #accessibility bugs in the Shortcuts app along the way. The resulting alert doesn't steal focus when manually executing the shortcut to test, nor is it modal. So I have no idea if it will work as I want when triggered for real.

Jak namierzyć lokalizację swojego dziecka? 3 sposoby
W związku z wydarzeniami w Andrychowie, gdzie przez kilka godzin bezskutecznie próbowano zlokalizować nastolatkę, która miała przy sobie smartfona pytacie nas, jak rodzice mogą namierzyć lokalizację swojego dziecka. Poniżej kilka sposobów:
Przez telefon komórkowy
Jeśli dziecko jest starsze i ma już smartfona, to niezależnie od tego czy posiada telefon z Androidem czy iPhona, można te urządzenia lokalizować przy pomocy darmowych rozwiązań. Ale trzeba je wcześniej aktywować!
Gdy dziecko ma iPhone, można udostępnić sobie lokalizację z poziomu aplikacji “Find My” (pol. Lokalizator) lub z poziomu aplikacji Google Maps.
Gdy dziecko ma Androida, lokalizację możemy udostępnić sobie z poziomu Google Maps lub Google Family Link.
Jeśli chcesz kontrolować nie tylko lokalizację dziecka, ale także to z jakich aplikacji może korzystać na swoim smartfonie lub ile czasu może spędzać przed ekranem, to w przypadku smartfonów lub tabletów z Androidem skorzystaj z Google Family Link, a w przypadku iPhonów lub iPadów z aplikacji Screen Time (pol. Czas przed ekranem). To aplikacje do tzw. kontroli rodzicielskiej.
Temu na co jeszcze pozwalają aplikacje do kontroli rodzicielskiej oraz jak poprawnie z nich korzystać, poświęciliśmy część naszego mini-szkolenia pt. “Cyberbezpieczeństwo dla Rodziców“. W szkoleniu znajdziecie także sporo o innych możliwościach jeśli chodzi o lokalizację dziecka. Tylko do końca weekendu możecie kupić to szkolenie po niższej o 25 PLN cenie z kodem KONTROLA. Kod działa tylko do końca weekendu ale na obejrzenie webinaru macie 30 dni, więc na pewno zdążycie. Tutaj bezpośredni link do koszyka.

Imagine if we had multiple telephone systems that didn't connect with one another?...
Imagine if we had multiple email systems that didn't connect with one another?...

TIRED of using multiple platforms for messaging/chat that don't connect - sms/text, RCS, WhatsApp, FB Messenger, Line, Google Chats. Supportive of EU efforts on this

Reports of active exploitation have been acknowledged by Apple, particularly targeting versions of iOS predating the release of iOS 16.7.1 on October 10, 2023.
BleeoingComputer posted this mention of a French #messaging app named #olvid that appears to be much more #privacy focused than other apps such as #Signal, #WhatsApp, #Telegram, etc. In particular it does NOT require you to provide a phone number or email address, and even if they are hacked the hacker will not have access to your message history (nor do Olvid employees, apparently). I had never heard of it before but found it quite interesting, and wonder why it doesn't get mentioned more often as a privacy and #security focused alternative to those other messaging programs. Is there some downside to it that I'm not seeing, or is it just that people aren't that interested in privacy and security, or what?
Here are a few paragraphs from their web site (https://olvid.io/en/) that describe some things I find appealing:
"Olvid does not require any personal data: no phone number, no email, no name, no surname, no address, no date of birth.
Unlike your previous messenger, Olvid will never request access to your address book."
"With Olvid, everything is end-to-end encrypted using cryptographic protocols with unrivalled power. Your messages & attachments are systematically protected.
Olvid’s cryptographic protocols are able to guarantee the security of your data even if our servers are hacked."
"Our users regularly exchange multi-gigabyte files via Olvid.
The attachments are not limited in size, and never modified, when sent or received.
There is an exception on Android when you enable Remove sensitive JPEG metadata or Resize photos taken in Olvid in Olvid Settings > Photos."

visionOS does illumination differently than iOS, needing smaller on-the-fly components for faster development. New light components are focused on IBL and provide minimal configuration. So if you're playing around with lighting on visionOS, this gist might come in handy:

Given I’m writing a few books, I’m curious about accessibility and Roman numerals.
Using VoiceOver on iOS via Apple Books and @kentbeck’s Tidy First, VoiceOver said “part one” and not “part eye.” I appreciated that.
As I don’t use AT regularly, still curious.
Is this standard for other text-to-speech AT? If not, I won’t use Roman numerals for the headings.
1) If you have any Apple devices, update the OS *now*
2) If you use Chrome browser: (a) update it *now*; and (b) switch to Firefox, and never use Chrome again.

As someone considering iOS development as a hobby, I’m curious how much time is spent on “maintenance” of an app?
Stuff like keeping up with engine changes (if applicable), SDK changes, new devices, responding to iOS updates, etc. Things that are introduced by outside forces.
Stuff that’s not bug fixes or updates/upgrades, which I would consider “self induced.”
1/ Yattee is an impressive YouTube replacement app that offers a fantastic user experience for Apple TV and iOS users. With its intuitive interface and powerful features, it has quickly gained popularity among those seeking a seamless #YouTube alternative. Let's dive into some reasons why Yattee deserves your attention.
SyncState offers real-time synchronization of application state across multiple devices using Apple's NSUbiquitousKeyValueStore. This allows for a consistent application state across various devices in your ecosystem. If your application operates on multiple platforms, SyncState ensures that all instances share the same state in real-time.
One of AppState's standout features is SyncState, a real-time state synchronization function. Using Apple's NSUbiquitousKeyValueStore, SyncState ensures your app state is consistent across all instances of your app in real-time.
AppState introduces unique property wrappers like AppState, AppDependency, and StoredState. These wrappers simplify handling state, dependencies, and stored state in your apps. For a detailed guide on how to use these, see the documentation.
[Friendly boosts welcome! TIA]
What would make your life easier when working with your vault on your Apple machines? Is there anything you have trouble getting to work? What are you missing on AFO's roadmap (https://forum.actions.work/t/development-roadmap/16)?
ℹ️ I’m afraid interactive widgets are currently out of the question, the mix of Obsidian API + iOS is not very forthcoming in that regard…
You know, as much as I am vehemently for open computing, I realized that I used to be generally okay with Apple’s #iOS walled garden, *when it was actually maintained*. When you could go on the App Store and find quality software that didn’t require a hidden subscription or IAPs to unlock 99% of its functionality and/or disable the endless ad spam.
What benefit does the walled garden provide us now? It’s full of weeds that have choked out everything else. Practically useless.
Great news today!
1) I'm making great progress on the Wipr 1 beta, I'll probably be able to submit it tomorrow. Not sure it fixes the issue tho, you'll have to tell me 🤷♀️ Watch this space for a signup link soon!
2) Today's iOS 17.2 beta seems to have fixed the bug that completely breaks Wipr 2 🎉 🥳🎈So we can start the Wipr 2 beta soon too! I can't wait for you to see it 😍

iOS 17 NameDrop privacy scare: What you need to know.

A while back, somebody posted a quicker way to post descriptions/labels to photos so that when you swipe to the photo, you immediately will know what it is. I have bookmarked a longer version that involves going to the markup thingy, but that's just a stupid amount of steps to remember... what was the shortcut to marking photos on #iOS? Thanks!
On the iOS 17 NameDrop "scare headlines"...
The more I dig in, the more I think there's something to this:
- It's on by default. Apple should turn it off by default
- Declining a request is confusing. There's no obvious "cancel" button
NameDrop is a nice feature, just needs a bit of tweaking.

Probiert mal in der #iOS App von #ChatGPT die neue #ChatGPTVoice Funktion aus - next level.
Es geht weniger um den nicht ganz sauberen Akzent, sondern etwa: das hörbare Einatmen (!) vor einem Satz. in Podcasts wollen wir das eher loswerden, hier bringt es eine ganz neue Ebene rein.
Ebenso Phrasierung, Tempoänderungen, Betonung. Man ahnt, dass hier im Gegensatz zum sofort hölzern klingenden #Siri eben ein #LLM im Hintergrund werkelt, dass Sprach-Dramaturgie „versteht“.
