Agile Tortoise releases Drafts 5

Happy to pay a reasonable price for the app (I’ve paid for multiple omni group apps) but the subscription thing just doesn’t work for me. How many subscriptions do these folks think we are willing to pay for? Agile tortoise aside it’s very rare that I’ve seen any software updated regularly enough to warrant paying for it monthly. Don’t even get me started on all the “abandon ware” I’ve ended up paying for over the years. I purchased the app in the past but I’m out now.

Agile Tortoise releases Drafts 5

Another company that’s dead to me now, thanks to the putrid subscription model they’ve adopted. Shame, because Drafts is one of my most used apps. I recall paying somewhere around $6.99 or so for Drafts 4, and used it for around 3 years, give or take. Similar for Drafts 3, iirc. But now they want me to pay $19.99 per year? Sorry, your app is good, but not that good. Living without the dark theme, I can handle, but removing the ability for users to create extensions unless they pay for subscription is simply vile. All that’s left is a simple note taker in the free version. I’d have gladly paid $10 one time, but I ain’t falling for this subscription crap. Oh, and the devs can take their “less then a cup of coffee” weasel-phrase and shove it up their rectum. I don’t live in the first world, and we don’t have a culture of drinking overpriced hipster coffee here. Now I need to look for an alternative.

Apple lands Asimov 'Foundation' TV series

Oh wow! That’ll be definitely a reason to get me to subscribe. The Foundation series is classic and I always wondered why no-one tried to get that one on screen.

YouTube for Apple TV gets a major facelift

google/YouTube snatched from us, without notice, a superior app, replacing it with a an old, clunky, dusty, app that the rest of the device world suffers with.

Apple facing growing calls to dump NRA TV after school shooting

If Apple caves and removes that channel, they should also agree to donate any proceeds from violent movies or shows they air to whatever the PC cause of the day happens to be.
I mean really! Either they are against violence or they are not right?

Apple Music for Android adds music video improvements

It would be nice to be able to access iTunes Match through the Android app as I am locked to an S8 for my work phone.

Apple facing growing calls to dump NRA TV after school shooting

Exactly, take this quote “propagates dangerous misinformation and inflammatory rhetoric that pits Americans against each other and furthers their agenda of guns anywhere, for anyone, no questions asked.”
If you change one word “guns” to “abortions”, the quote would apply to Planned Parenthood.  I’m not advocating limiting Planned Parenthood, just pointing out that limiting free speech is a two way street.

Apple facing growing calls to dump NRA TV after school shooting

I’m pretty much in agreement with you on this. While I don’t think this has anything to do with the 2nd Amendment and I, as a gun owner, support tougher ownership laws (just like a car requires DL, taxes, registration), this is a very slippery slope Apple would embark on.
What will be next…religion, political affiliation, geographic location? If Apple is to lean on the 1st Amendment for policies and media it supports, then it should follow suit for those it disagrees with in an equal manner. Otherwise, spare me the hypocrisy!

Apple facing growing calls to dump NRA TV after school shooting

Nobody is forced to install the NRA TV app on their Apple TV.  Anyone who has it, installed it because they wanted to see it.
The right to own a gun is ingrained in the the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution.  The right to free speech is ingrained in the 1st Amendment to the Constitution.  Apple should respect the 1st Amendment rights of people exercising their 2nd Amendment rights.

Just-funded Plux wireless charging pad will have room for iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods

Wish the Plux had a little more style, but I can see the benefit of the propped up iPhone while charging.

Apple hires Narcos, Hannibal producer Carol Trussell as Head of Production

It probably isn’t in the cards, but Apple should start off reviving “Hannibal”. It was a great series with a stellar cast and a dedicated fan base. It was highly rated when it was unceremoniously ended by NBC. I am sure there are “ownership” issues, but if they could work that out, it could be a nice, easy way for Apple to begin their original content era.

Twelve South adds iPhone X version of its SurfacePad case in exclusive colors

This thing should hardly be called a “case” since it offers no protection for the corners of the iPhone at all.  It’s just a flap of leather for the front and back.  Useless and not at all worth $50, you might as well just put one of those D-Brand stickers on your phone that all the YouTubers hawk endlessly.

YouTube for Apple TV gets a major facelift

No 4K support on the 4K Apple TV? Even my built in Youtube app on my TV does this. I feel like apple is borderline false advertising on Apples behalf.

A sad loss for Apple. But Stephen should not be the only one on their research team. The slack will just have to be filled.

Apple providing free repairs for 'No Service' problem on some iPhone 7 models sold in US

This happened to my iPhone 7 on Xmas eve.  I needed a phone right away so I bought a new one and sold the broken one as-is.  When I found out this was a thing I called Apple Support and they confirmed that I was out of luck.  Doesn’t seem fair since they sold me a defective phone.
