Alex Guyot has been working on this custom interface for Editorial for at least a couple of days and the result is great. It's a vastly featured FTP client that will definitely get you covered until Transmit for iOS comes.
We cover plenty of x-callback-url here, but here and then I write about apps without it — and there are some great ones out there. Listing them all would be a lifework, so I'll show you my favorites URL schemes without x-callback-url and how to overcome it using Launch Center Pro.
It has been almost a month since the last post and for that I apologize. In this article I want to share some thoughts on the future of iOS automation and the role this blog will play in the upcoming weeks.
I'm a film bachelor, so every time I can get away from my obligations for 2 hours or more, I'll be watching a movie. I had ratings for movies spread all over the internet. Criticker, IMDB, Letterboxd, Flixster, you name it, I've been there at some point. I decided to put Day One to good use and store my ratings within it.
There are many workflows to search the App Store on Editorial, SearchLink, by Brett Terpstra, has been ported to the platform and allows you to search many other places as well. All I needed was really a good and flexible App Store search. At first, I built one without a custom UI to test if I could do it and was fairly easy since I based it on SearchLink's bit for iTunes. Then I decided to build an interface for it and things, as always, got tricky.
When I tap on this action, it presents a list of artists (Eminem, Foo Fighters, Pharrell Williams, and "Search"). If I tap on either of the first two, I am presented with a list of albums, and when I tap on the album name, that album auto-plays in Ecoute. If I tap on Pharrell Williams, G I R L automatically plays because I only have one album by him in my library.
Also, the idea to keep your actions updated with a Dropbox text file is gold. I'm probably borrowing that soon.
You probably heard the news that latest Launch Center Pro update brought integration with IFTTT, a service that trigger actions between web services. We're going to understand how both services work so we can take the most out of this new addition and, of course, I'll share a couple of recipes here in the first article on Launch Center Pro's groundbreaking update.
When Ole Moritz released Editorial 1.1, the geeks out there freaked out. Not only was Editorial an universal app now, it also added a bunch of delicacies for our delight. One of them is the ui module to create custom interfaces. Viticci illustrated his review on the update with a couple examples and I decided to give it a go after reading the documentation.
