My Alcohol-Free April 2014

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.

Hourly News has just been updated for both the iOS and Mac versions. The updated versions — 1.6.3 on iOS and 1.2.3 on Mac — are available now on the iTunes and Mac App stores. So what’s new?

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.

Hourly News Is the TUAW Mac App of the Week

| Comments

Hourly News for Mac just got a great writeup from my friends over at The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW) / AOL.

I use Hourly News to keep on top of national and world news at work, especially when I’m busy doing other tasks. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the deluge of media in your day-to-day activities, Hourly News is great for making sure you’re still on top of things without constant media exposure.

My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), Mac OS X and the Web out of New York. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.

I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our two doggies Hamachi and Foxy. While coding, I walk several miles/day on my Treadmill Desk. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
