Bugs and issues are in my experience always given attention, but I mean more things like developer enhancements and improvements to the new APIs. Once they get finalized this fall it much harder to get movement than in the next few weeks.

I recorded a little standalone podcast episode this week with talking about my experience being the ‘official’ photographer for the and live shows and more generally trying new things you don’t know how to do.

A habit I’ve gotten into for WWDC is to start the week with a fresh notebook. Write notes/questions in the front and then keep a list of radars to file in the back. I’m up to 14 so far this week. The best time to file requests is now when they have time to fix, not August.

I believe the heart rate recovery shown in Activity is just calculated from the workout end time. Nothing to do on the app side

My favorite announcement of the morning. Goodbye Series 0 Apple Watch. It’s been fun but you were holding the platform back. I can do so many more interesting things with Series 1/2 was the baseline!

I love the sound of everything just announced for watchOS. I think a hiking workout mode is my oldest watchOS Radar. So glad all the new stuff seems to be open to 3rd party devs too.

The watchOS section…where I become both incredibly excited and incredibly nervous.

Definitely the most majestic spot I’ve ever been when my live show alert system triggered. I’m just glad I had reception.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes! A fun little tradition I’ve started for my birthday since getting the Apple Watch is to take a screenshot on my birthday of the “planets” watch face. Fun to see the earth stand still while everything else zips around:

Re: Under the radar - I'm a daily VoiceOver user and programmer; super willing to do accessibility testing for anyone and also looking for long-term work in this area, or even contracting for specific projects. Trying to get the word out.

I am incredibly grateful to all my customers who have helped Pedometer++ reach a rather significant milestone. It just had its 5,000,000th download! Thank you.
