What I did in week seven, 2023
In continuation to week six, here are the things I was interested in week seven, 2023:
- 📺 Continued watching Star Wars: The Bad Batch: Season 2, Slow Horses (2022), and Bad Sisters (2022). Only two episodes to go with Bad Sisters. JP really disgusts me. Looking forward to something more light-hearted, like Shrinking (2023).
- 📱Stumbled upon Amplosion: It automatically redirects from AMP links to normal websites.
- 📱Inspired by @tasheng I looked into some new to me trakt.tv clients. I really enjoy using TV Forecast but it is only for TV series. For movies I fell back to the native trakt.tv app. But its UI is really a mess. Apps I tried were:
- Sofa Time: Bought it right way. Has widgets and no subscription, yet.
- Rippple: I do like its design, it's subscription based but not that expensive. Will definitely evaluate further.
- ReelTime (Testflight, @email@example.com): This one is slick, too. It has widgets and is free as in 🍺!
- CouchPal (Testflight, @CouchPal@indieapps.space): I really like its simplicity and you can post natively to Mastodon; no widgets though. Only $ 2.79, instabought it.
- Film Noir (Testflight): The UI is IMHO overloaded and too crowded. It's not for me.
- 📱 Lots of great Mona Themes to try.
- 🔗 It seems that I am one of 20 beta testers of Interlink. It's a blazingly fast offline-first bookmarking app for iOS, iPadOS, and macOS. I am really looking forward to it and could consider switching from Anybox.
- 💻 Installed Later - Save your Mac apps for later.
- 💻 Joined the Ivory for Mac beta and use it all the day, next to Mona beta and Ice Cubes (in that order).
- 💻 Upgraded MacUpdater – keep all your apps up-to-date effortlessly. Funny, that it did not tell my that there was an upgrade available 😄
- ✏️ Micro.Blog is still confusing to me. I consider switching entirely to omg.lol1 for weblog and Mastodon.
- 🐘 Wished there was a native way to get an RSS feed of your Mastodon bookmarks.
- 🎙️Listened to some podcasts: ATP: 521, ATP: 522, Launched: 20: CARROT Weather - Brian Mueller, Playdate Podcast: Zipper, Playdate Podcast: Hyper Meteor, Playdate Podcast: Questy Chess, Playdate Podcast: Executive Golf DX.
- 👾 New week, two new playdate Season 1 games: Questy Chess and Executive Golf DX. I like both games so far. And after understanding the basic game mechanics of Zipper, I had definitely some fun with it, too. Speaking of playdate, I thought, I had a faulty battery but somehow it seems to have fixed itself (after trying lots of things) 😅. BTW Panic's support seems to be completely overwhelmed. I had to wait almost two weeks for my first reply and I have not received any feedback on my follow-up to that so far. A bit of a bummer.
