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.

The In-Between – Book Review

I just managed to complete the book The in-between by Jeff Goins and I have to admit, it was enjoyable and thought provoking. It is a book that that I would be happy to recommend to my loved friends and you my dear reader.

Don’t get startled if I say I didn’t read the book, Yeah this was the first book that I managed to complete using Audible app on my iPhone. Audio books were never my thing, I have tried a couple of books and tossed the app out of the phone after two months of no usage. This time it was different. I have to admit the bike commutes to office helped.

The Book is a short yet nice read. It helps one realize the amount of time we miss out enjoying each day waiting for something. I have to admit that the book has redefined my perspective of waiting, especially the time spent waiting for the next big thing. I can’t relate more to the book and the time, given the transition phase I am in. I think I do have a few more months of this transition time. Thanks to the book, I am going to enjoy the time rather than be restless and worried.

Amidst bustling traffic in the suburbs on a sweaty and dusty bike commute, Still being able to relate to the anecdote that is being read to you by the very own author in the earphones, can only mean that the narration is pretty darn good. The audio book is a bit shy of 4 hours including acknowledgements, etc and I recommend you spend the time learning what waiting actually means.
