You’re browsing Safari and find a Twitter profile that sparks your interest. You visit it and get a prompt to install the Twitter official app. You may have it, however, chances are that if you’re reading this, you use Tweetbot. You memorize the Twitter handle, open Tweetbot, tap search, type the user name and you’re finally there. What if we could build a bookmarklet for this?
There has been a lot of footnotes on the web lately and most of the times that wouldn't be viable without MultiMarkdown, an extended version of Markdown made by Fletcher Penney. One of the coolest things about MultiMarkdown is that it has a syntax to create tables, however, that's not as simple as you may think.
I've seen a lot of actions using TextTool lately, Jeffrey Kishner seems to be a bigger fan of the app than myself. That's because it is an awesome application for whoever deals with text in a iOS device. Today we gonna pick our text from Drafts, send it to Launch Center Pro where we can select the transformation, then jump to TextTool and back to Drafts, where it loops. This means you can modify your text as many times you want, isn't that cool?
Last week I created a version from a great workflow to grab a picture with Prizmo and send the OCR text to your Mac with Command-C, all I did was allowing device selection. Today we're going to play with Prizmo again, this time sharing our OCR among our apps and, while we're there, learning how its url scheme works and a few tricks for encoding complex actions.
If you have a Mac, you may have heard of Kaleidoscope, an amazing application to compare documents, folders, images, anything. It is certainly the cream of the crop in the category, which justifies its price tag. I wanted some sort of the functionality from Kaleidoscope in my iOS devices to compare my drafts before publishing here.
It has been a while since I wrote about Drafts as I've been mesmerized by the possibilities the new Launch Center Pro opens. However, you still can't beat the ease to create recursive actions in Drafts, remember how these look like? GoodTask, an improvement over the built-in Reminders got x-callback-url support recently. Turns out they're a great match.
I maintain a group in Launch Center Pro to quickly reach my important contacts, aka, my girlfriend and my mom. Each one have 2 actions, one for calling and another to write a SMS. Maybe you keep more contacts in your short list, but considering this is a group, you can hold up to 7 contacts there. What if you want to store more contacts? What if you don't want to use a group anymore? We'll squeeze your important contacts into a single action and give you the option to call or send a message.
Yesterday I linked to a really cool Launch Center Pro action that would take a scan from Prizmo and send the OCR'ed text to your Mac using Command-C. I thought the idea was so great I decided to tweak it a little, allowing you to send the text to any of your devices.
I enabled two-factor authentication in most of my online services. It adds another security layer to your login, prompting you to input a security code given to you in real-time by either a mobile message or an app, such as Authy, which is the one I use. I took the day to play with its URL scheme to ease the app bouncing when logging in your beloved services.
