kvetching: the true american pastime

Cool. There’s so much buried in Settings these days, you never know what someone’s found or not. :)

I leave it on. I find the three finger gestures less reliable. But then I find myself fruitlessly shaking it because the app author decided not to make my last action undoable and there’s no visible signal whether you can or can’t undo. I bet it looks hilarious.

I didn’t realize the iPad had shake to undo though. That’s just ridiculous on the bigger ones. Like shake to undo on a laptop.

Huh. Desktop Mac users get screwed along with the Android users. Wonderful.

You can disable Shake to Undo under Settings > Accessibility > Touch.

(Its replacement since iOS 13 is a three-finger touch and hold to summon a floating bar that includes undo/redo, or directly swipe left with three fingers to undo, right to redo.)

  • Capability: Web apps can do things that apps distributed via a store cannot. Apple refuse to allow some apps, or reject them callously with no explanation. They don’t get that call with Web apps.
  • Reach: Web apps are also available where the App Store is not. There are countries not yet reached by the App Store. There are countries the App Store is legally not allowed to trade with. But the Web does reach those places.

Dang. Wonder what’s up with that. I haven’t looked at what’s going on there in a long time. (I also find I rarely use that functionality, since I check in about daily, which probably doesn’t help.)

If you find a way to reliably break it, please let me know. That’d help a lot in tracking it down.

It was an unlikely possibility, but the great thing about software is there are so many parts that can go wrong. >.>

Scrolling doesn’t autoload. Did you tap to load more, and it then fetched stuff too old? I think I tried fixing that once before. Then it had issues with picking the right filter time between create vs pub date IIRC. If it just loaded like that to start on a fresh launch, I can only think API is being weird.

Edit: In Global, not seeing any issues paging back with Load More now. Went back 2 Mores.
