Is there such a thing as a share sheet extension (the options you get on iOS when you hit that share arrow, like “Send to Instapaper”) that’s basically a webhook? I want to define the endpoint and then do something with the payload server side. Bonus if I can define a few fields at share time. Do Shortcuts do this?
@jimray AND ANOTHER THING! If you subscribe to magazine that’s a subset of News Plus, but don’t subscribe to Plus, there’s no longer any way to link to that subscription.
Which is probably for the better since News Plus now breaks things like Instapaper.
So News went from an ok product with a lot of potential to another tech giant kicking the news industry while it’s down and building a shittier experience for readers. Harumphf.
A thing that happens to me several times a week:
Get an Apple News alert. Tap in. Read a bit, click a link, go back, go back too far to the News home screen, lose the story forever.
There’s no history (that I’m aware of?) and Apple seems more interested in upselling their not-very-good subscription service over making the app useful.
News could be a decent product, as it stands it’s a pretty half-baked interface to their Services revenue pillar.
I’ve collected these for many years, and their time has finally come. I present to you the rise and fall of iTunes, told via its own error messages.
Introducing StopTheNews, a free open source app for macOS 10.14 Mojave that stops Safari from opening Apple News articles in News app and opens them in Safari instead.
@jimray to answer my own question here: the Washington Post has both a serviceable ebook version and a bound print copy with analysis, perfect for in-law trolling.

This Bad Plus Joshua Redman album isn’t new or anything but I have been enjoying it this winter
@shanecyr Have we ever discussed Peter Gabriel’s oeuvre? I feel like we should have by now.
Lol. As we surfed for something to watch last night, I literally said “I have zero desire to watch a choose your own adventure movie but will Instapaper the inevitable WIRED puff piece on how it was made”
(Btw BIRD BOX wasn’t all that great)
Toots for days.
