1.40: ‘Tredecim’, with David Sparks.

David is someone who I have been listening to for a few years now. From his ‘Mac Power Users‘ podcast to ‘Focused’ (neè Free Agents), a podcast that listened to for most of last year before I left my full-time job.

A really decent guy to talk to, and his passion for technology and how it benefits him really shows here.

We go all into his uses with his iPad, especially about his love for Siri Shortcuts and the new Apple Pencil.

But the other half of this episode is what’s next. We are now in the season of what we’d like to see next. So do we see iPadOS coming? Do we see iOS 13 answering some of the cries? What do we want to see at WWDC, for a product we enjoy using?

We go all in on it.

1.27: ‘The Shortcuts Show’, with Matthew Cassinelli.

Siri Shortcuts had its beginnings as ‘Workflow‘, before being acquired by Apple last year in March. It lets you create workflows by commands and different apps, and you can also activate them from Siri itself. Up until its release, I wasn’t convinced. After its release, I was, and I’ve been wanting to learn more about it ever since.

Which is why this week I’m joined by an ex-Workflow member and now freelancer, Matt Cassinelli, where we talk about how Siri Shortcuts fits on his iPad, our wishes for Version 3.0, alongside him trying to convince me to pre-order an iPhone XR.

He also completely destroys a feature that has been a staple of the show for the last few months!
