@Gargron honestly, and I’m saying that as the person who sort of invented web animation (script.aculo.us), only animate stuff when you need the users’ attention; like for errors or required input.

What apps do you use on your smartphone for creativity/productivity?

so, um

anyone else had this situation

you're lured to an illicit evening trying something you tend to avoid ("OpenGL"), it passes in a haze

*Method dispatch means how a method is addressed in memory: at compile time or at runtime.

Is iOS/iPadOS the platform with the highest software maintenance cost?

SwiftUI provides a very nice Shapes API that allows us to build super custom UIs fast and in an easy way. I use Shape API to build a sleep zones chart in NapBot. To learn more about building charts in SwiftUI take a look at my post.
