iOS -Keyboards

iOS has come a long way since the version 1.0, in fact it has been 8 years since the OS was first launched. To be truly judgemental, version 8 has seen the most exciting features ever since the launch of App store. Since this is a very detailed post on iOS 8 Keyboard Extensions and there are quite a lot of features that shipped with iOS 8, its better you check out the full list of features elsewhere here.

Extensions across iOS has been the most talked about feature of this release, and I have been looking forward to third party keyboard extensions ever since I saw the swipe keyboards on Android. iOS 8 brings keyboard extensions to all iOS 8 supported devices which are iPhone 4S and later models, iPod 5th Generation, iPad 2nd Genartation and later and iPad Mini all versions. Here is how some popular third party keyboards work and how they fare so far in real life. But before that some Continue reading “iOS -Keyboards”

The new commute!

Going green for the commute and local errands starting today 😁.  I picked up this Pure fix bike yesterday from Cycling station (Bangalore) for local errands. Looks pretty rad in person than in the pics.  Got a good deal on the  used bike and picked it instantly.

I have always wanted ride a fixie after learning about the bulldog. It has been a long wait to own one, but I have no regrets whatsoever now. It is a sweet ride and am super cautious on the road with the fixie, as I am still getting used to it. 

I am yet to name it, so name suggestions are welcome 😁. 

Keyboard shortcut to connect AirPods

This  alfred workflow is cool. I accidentally stumbled on this post today via Dustin and immediately ended up creating the workflow in Alfred.

I am bookmarking this for future to ensure I can use the apple script for other types of bluetooth devices I have :).

BTW if you aren’t using the Apple AirPods you should give it a try. I would definitely say they were my best purchase in 2017. They are so comfortable that I sleep with them sometimes and I wake up with them intact in my ears and I don’t even realise I had them plugged in my ears.  If you aren’t convinced here is a review by Sajib that you can read to convince yourself 🙂 .

Welcome 2018!

It has been a good couple of years for me. I am extremely thankful and happy for what I have and how far I have come. Sadly the blog hasn’t seen much during this time and hopefully I will work on it better this year. I don’t have a new year resolution to post X number of posts or any such thing. But I do have a framework of what I want to do this year. My one keyword for this year is going to be HABITS. I plan to work on creating a quite a few good habits or get rid of a few bad ones over the entirety of this year. The idea is to focus on one habit every month and stay disciplined to create that habit at the end of the month. Most of these are going to be about small minor wins to be had on a daily basis.
This month I am going to try to Read at least a page of book first thing in the morning, every day of January.
