Consider incorporating #21 into this piece. (Keep gettin bigger tho...) @extratone

Remember to organize and properly index all iPhone photography across Google Photos. @extratone

Apparently I'm going to have to go back and find what Twitter has deleted from the iPhone 12 Pro Max Twitter Moment because Moments have a silent 98 Tweet limit. I'm going to have to gather them as well as what's left of the Moment, currently, and migrate the Tweets to this collection. (Yes, that's a shortlink.)

Apparently, the only way to accomplish this is to do it through Tweetdeck, so this is definitely a task that's going to have to be done on desktop. @extratone

My iPhone Wallpapers Shared Folder

I can't believe I've missed commenting this all this time... The Mapaper map images, especially, are too beautiful to miss!

The Psalms' New Telegram Channel

I've created yet another Telegram channel that I'm going to attempt to use to share related media/documentation/minutia as I have been here but in a slightly different format. I thought I would try it because 1.) I want to take more advantage of Telegram, generally and 2.) I should avoid using GitHub as a file sharing service, and using Telegram as a substitution when particular challenges become an issue might actually stick. @extratone

I was worried that having the sideloaded shit on there and running on a dev beta build was slowing the phone down, but I just recorded the best of the three Geekbench 5 runs I've ever put the phone through lol.

The State of Notetaking With Git Integration on iOS

This was originally intended as a response to a post on the Obsidian forums, but apparently it included too many hyperlinks for one's post there, so trying to post it got my account suspended. (lol)

Regarding Git on iOS, I just wanted to pop in and and share Working Copy since it wasn't mentioned.

I've spent the past eight or nine months playing around with Git as integrated into the entirety of my writing/notetaking/curating/documenting process. (here's the primary subject repo, if you're curious, but there's nothing particularly special about anything I've done with it so far.)

in the past three months, especially, this has involved working more on my new iPhone than I have since community college, when my iPhone 4 was my only computer for three semesters. (that is a good story lol)

I think I have a fairly good picture of Git on iOS, specifically, after all the reading and testing (screwing around) I've done.

here are the bullet points:

Personally, I would rather go through the hassle to write in Bear and export to Working Copy every once in a while than any other workflow I've found yet because I love how both apps look and work, but maybe I'm just superficial lol. @extratone

Most Intriguing Apps

An ongoing list of links to iOS apps, App Stories, and greater media coverage.

The Gist is probably the best way to keep up with this at the moment. (Here's a shortlink: http://bit.ly/dbintrigue)

I’ve privately maintained a list like this for as long as I can remember, to be honest, but it’s never been particularly useful to others until now. Though it’ll probably never be alphabatized, standardized, or comprehensively annotated, it will be kept relatively up-to-date - certainly for the duration of my iPhone 12 Pro Max long review.


App Stories

iOS Apps to Watch

Note: I basically just copied this from a note that hadn't been modified in years. Suffice it to say, you should probably check versioning dates before downloading any of them.

Here's a link to my Notion Wallpapers database, filtered for just iPhone wallpapers. @extratone

Apple Support Scam Call

Whyp Link

Audio file in the repo

I finally received the Apple Support scam call I asked for for Christmas!

The end result wasn't all that exciting - she hung up as soon as I asked her which iCloud account of mine she was referring to.

It almost certainly doesn't matter, but here are the two numbers involved.

The number of the caller: +1 (800) 297-2199 The number from which I received an RDP invite link via SMS: +1 (844) 334-6022 @extratone
