It doesn’t seem like this could be allowed under Apple’s rules. While the company has allowed developers to use custom keyboard in their apps, I believe this is the first time that a third-party has provided one to multiple applications. I’m a fan of the innovation, but I just fear for its longevity.

Underscore is one of the good guys.
Smile is now using x-callback-url to share snippets, meaning users will need to manually update apps to see new snippets, but it’s a lot better than nothing. Developers using the TextExpander SDK will need to update their apps to pick up the changes, however.
Greg Scown: Yesterday, after a period of engagement with the App Review Team from Apple, they informed us that TextExpander’s use of Reminders for shared snippet data storage is not an intended use of Reminders and will no longer be accepted. TextExpander touch will not clear review until this is resolved. Apps which implement the […]
I like Alfred and Pinboard. Alfred is a powerful, extensible launcher and Spotlight-replacement for OS X. Pinboard is an excellent, no-nonsense online bookmarking system. Through the use of some simple workflows, Alfred can be used to search Pinboard quickly. While this does require Alfred’s Powerpack, you probably should already be using it, as it’s awesome. […]
Let’s be honest: the iOS experience is really all about the third-party apps. Let’s be honest about something else: the difference between good apps and bad apps can be huge. Let’s be honest about one last thing: discovery in the App Store kinda sucks. Now that group therapy is over, I’d like to tell you […]
Peter Kafka: Apple has signed on more video providers for its Apple TV box: Yahoo is now offering its Yahoo Screen service on the Web video gadget, and PBS has created an app that lets users watch some, but not all, of its shows. Neither channel requires users to authenticate as cable subscribers, which is […]
My go-to Dropbox-powered, Markdown-equipped iOS text these days is Notesy. The $4.99 universal app is fast, powerful and has been updated for iOS 7. Before using Notesy, I was a die-hard PlainText user. PlainText was one of the first apps in its category, worked well and looked good. Before iOS 7, the app was free […]
One of my favorite iOS apps just got a nice overhaul for iOS 7.
Apple: The new iWork applications — Pages, Numbers, and Keynote — were released for Mac on October 22nd. These applications were rewritten from the ground up to be fully 64-bit and to support a unified file format between OS X and iOS 7 versions, as well as iWork for iCloud beta. These apps feature an […]
Casey Newton: One day last month, the seven employees of Everpix gathered at their co-working space in San Francisco to discuss the company’s impending shutdown. Wayne Fan, one of the co-founders, opened a mock-up of the screen that the photo storage service’s customers would see once the company announced the news. The screen described the […]
Clearly, I’m a creature of habit. The screenshot on the left is from just over two years ago, while the one on the right is my current setup.

Chris Gonzales: If there’s one takeaway from my experience with Pocket Casts 4, it’s that the developers have put an enormous amount of work into overhauling the experience. What I used to think was a crummy app has made a surprising comeback and overtaken Instacast for the top spot in its field, which is exactly […]
