One issue I’ve been having with ReadKit is that the built-in browser is very choppy when it comes to scrolling. Not smooth at all. I wonder if it’s using UIWebView instead of WKWebView. Still doesn’t make sense though. 🤷♂️

Being a developer, I certainly think there are cases where monthly payments make sense (and I pay for some things that way), but a “reader” app that shows content from other sources is not it.
As a replacement solution, last week I purchased Reeder for macOS and iOS. So far I’m very happy with the polish and delightful details. Very well done.
It’s interesting, not necessarily in a good way, that so many people are willing to call out Clump’s lies now that the wind is blowing the other way.

I know I've said it before but let me indulge. Kottke.org is the best blog on Earth and you're missing out if you're not following it.

More Playdate news. It’s such a cool idea. I can’t tell whether I’m more excited about the thing itself or about the fact that the Panic folks are behind it. Love these guys!
