Absolutely. My eyes end up jumping through each element vs focusing on setting a time. There’s also a “Time” label, in case you weren’t sure that you’re working with time.

But that’s the thing: I don’t care about a precise time. I just want to set an approximate alarm. Somewhere between 8:30 and 9:00 is fine. This is where the cognitive load happens: you have to think of a precise alarm time and then dial/tap it in using this awkward UI.

Main downside is reachability. Buttons used to be right under your thumb. In my case, I rarely answer the phone and often let it go to voicemail. Important phone calls are usually scheduled. So I’ll take an unobstructed UI over a full screen takeover.

The worst iOS 14 change: Edit Alarm Clock UI. It creates a lot of cognitive load—especially if you’re about to fall asleep or if you’re snoozing/changing your alarm in the morning. The scroll wheel is not intuitive and you end up blocking the digits with your thumb 👎

Evolution of a button.

Scratch that. Compact UI is the best iOS 14 feature. 10 years late.

Interesting. Mine works depending on how I hold my phone and relies on a few factors: how fast you tap and how hard you tap?

It’s still not bulletproof. The tapping is similar to tapping on your Gen 1 AirPods: when it works, it works. 75% or the time at best.

Still figuring out what’s best. For now I keep them all on the first page / out of my apps pages. Maybe that will change 🤷‍♂️ Can’t believe that I need to use one just to see my battery percentage.

Ever since Apple killed the home button, Reachability has been turned into an iffy hit-or-miss swipe gesture. As a result, you end up tapping on unwanted parts of the UI while trying to activate it by swiping on the bottom part of your screen. Back Tap solves that.

My favourite iOS 14 feature: Back Tap. Magically tap on the back of your phone to perform an action. I set mine to Reachability and Screenshot since both have been hard to perform without having to shift your hand from the natural phone-holding position.

Moe's was an establishment. Those greasy sausages and pan cakes. We need a new grease hole. Or maybe we don't.

It was the saddest thing last night. I had a long list of "Want to visit" places with green flags :/ Bunch of them are now "Permanently closed". Definitely felt like a graveyard of brunch/dinner spots.

Yea, I know. I've removed all the ones that I had in my "Want to visit" list so couldn't go back to a more recent example. Fieldstone happened to be in my regular "Saved" list from a while back that I still haven't removed—so used that as an example for the tweet.
