When developing an app that downloads data and/or creates a lot of data, it is useful to inspect the simulator’s file system to ensure the files are what, and where you expect them to be. I was tired of having to manually dig in and figure out where these files were being installed to, so I wrote an Xcode Run Script to figure it out for me.
The IRT (Interborough Rapid Transit) City Hall Station was the very first Subway station in NYC. It opened to great fanfare as it allowed people to get from Lower Manhattan all the way uptown in minutes for the first time.
Over time, the next station on the line — the Brooklyn Bridge station, only 600ft away — became more popular due to it’s several transfer opportunities and longer boarding areas. Eventually the ridership at this station dropped to a mere couple hundred a day, and thus it was closed down and abandoned until 2004.
Normally I don’t respond to iTunes App Store reviews about my apps, but I saw this one today and thought it needed a response and justification for the design decision to include interface sounds in the Chicago Bikes App that are enabled by default.
Unsatisfied with the current open-source progress view components, today I created my own. UAProgressView is a simple and lightweight, yet powerful animated circular progress view. UAProgressView is highly configurable, includes touch highlighting, block based event handling, and animation.
Last year, my spouse and I moved to Manhattan from some suburbs on Long Island. One of the best parts about moving to the city was the ability to ditch our cars and take public transit everywhere. In addition to the daily benefits of commuting around the city without automobiles, we also benefited from having hundreds of bars and restaurants within a short walking distance.
Since moving into the city, we have found that we also like to partake in the local food and drink scene, often dining out multiple times a week. Because the cars are gone, and drinking and driving is no longer an issue, we found ourselves drinking more too. Over time, I began to recognize a pattern in myself that I did not like so much.
Urban is an Xcode theme that uses a soft dark background, with subtle blue, orange and yellow colors.

We added a setting called “Exclude Played Episodes” which, when enabled, skips past a news podcast episode if already heard. This is great for when you have a mixture of weekly or daily updated sources in with your hourly news source.
