Workflow Field Guide [Link]

March 02, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

David Sparks does it again. I honestly had no idea this was coming when I posted a Workflows.app tip yesterday. David's latest product is a video tutorial of the entire Workflow application and action set with a lot of great tips. It's an hour long video walkthrough of everything required to build some awesome utilities. The video is shot on an iPad but applies equally to the iPhone version of Workflow.

As usual, David's video is professional and is perfect for beginners and advanced users. I just finished watching and I learned a bunch of new stuff about an app I've been using since the first day it came out.

Get the whole shebang for $10.

Here's a free sample:

    The Inquisitive Podcast was revamped to be more of a documentary than an interview show. It's two episodes into the new format and it's very entertaining. If you only listened to the first episode of the series (ep. 27) then it may have seemed more like Apple cheerleading ...

  2. Workflow for iOS Update with Article Parser

    Workflow for iOS is certainly a handy little application. While not as powerful as Pythonista, it's far more simple to work with, due primarily to the clever action design.

    The latest update brings support for parsing "articles", which I assume just means the body of a webpage. Whatever it ...

    March 01, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    I think the last two episodes compliment each other nicely. This week Jeff and I talked about owning a home and the poor thought that usually goes into that decision. There are many days when I miss renting but there are also some real joys in owning a house too ...

    I use the heck out of Critic Markup, but I don't have a lot of time to make all the tools I want. Some awesome people are taking matters into their own hands.

    CriticMarkup.js converts the syntax into HTML.

    An interesting essay by Andrew Potter:

    From the paleo diet to the "ancestral health" craze to the criminals leading the anti-vaccine movement, we live in neoprimitivist times, in precisely the manner sketched by William Gibson. A disturbingly large segment of society has adopted a highly skeptical and antagonistic relationship to ...

    A wonderful eulogy by Aziz Ansari for his friend:

    I was so excited for what was ahead for Harris. I knew he was going to really explode after this new project. The little bit of Wittels comedy out there was just the tip of the tip of the iceberg.

    A nice summary from Marc Rogers:

    Superfish replaces legitimate site certificates with its own in order to compromise the connections so it can install its adverts. This means that anyone affected by this adware cannot trust any secure connections they make.
