Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, June 24, 2018, and this is show number 685.

Chit Chat Across the Pond

I normally don’t have developers on the show, but I made an exception for Chit Chat Across the Pond this week. I asked Steve Harris of Reinvented Software to come on to talk about two things. First I wanted to hear about the challenges of Apple’s app stores from a developer’s point of view. We talk about what was hard before and what’s gotten better for developers. Really fun to hear the inside view. Then we switch gears and talk about the new Dark Mode for macOS Mojave and what that means to developers. Steve is a great guy with a wicked and cutting sense of humor and I think you’ll enjoy his perspective. Check out Chit Chat Across the Pond episode #552 in either the full feed or Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite.

Patreon and Amazon

You know what’s really cool about using Patreon to give your support to the podcasters that bring you value? It’s that you can change your pledge at any time. If you run out of funds, you can lower or cancel altogether. But guess what? If you start thinking, “Dang, I get even more value out of this show than I first thought!” You can actually raise your pledge! That’s what good friend of the show Dick Nelson did last week.
