HAPPY NEW YEAR! 🥳
While there is some debate as to the official start of the decade, here at Photics.com the event is celebrated today. If for no other reason, now there’s a normal nickname for the decade — the 20s or the 2020s. Woo hoo! In looking for a significant way to celebrate, a new app was launched — Apparatuses. This is the iOS counterpart of the macOS App Widgets. The plan is to work on these apps for many years to come. Officially launching Apparatuses, at the start of a new decade, is a nice way to commemorate the occasion.

Now that the Widgets app is in better shape, the plan is to finally work on a new version of A Book About Hype. While I love working on Widgets, I also love the community at forums.tumult.com! People have been asking for the book. I feel bad for not publishing an updated edition – especially since Tumult put extra work into improving the Physics API. Today, I decided to make it official. Work on the 2020 edition of A Book About Hype has officially begun.

Widgets is currently available for pre-order.

The 10-Year Plan has been modified to accommodate two significant projects. Within the next 2-3 months, the hope is to launch “Widgets”. (That’s the new name for the “Dartboard” app.) It is quite possibly the best Photics app ever made.

It looks like Apple is killing the Dashboard with the “Catalina” macOS 10.15 update. If you’re like me, this is bad news. I probably press F12 over a dozen times a day. I like checking on the Weather, Stocks and other useful gadgets. It looks like I’m not alone in this disappointment. While the feedback on MacRumors and 9to5Mac is mixed, plenty of people voiced their disappointment with this decision. To help fix this problem, “Dartboard” is the next app from Photics.
