Happy iPhone 5 and iOS 6, everyone! When I haven’t been drooling over my new screen or LTE I’ve been hard at work rolling out a bunch of new, cool features on the site, like the new iPhone and iPad-compatible UI. Check it out and let us know if you have any feedback!

Cheers,

Hello, and welcome to our slightly (diagonally) longer, faster, shinier new reality! Have you ordered an iPhone 5? Are you holding out until the reviews come in? Are you going to skip it altogether and hold out until next year when Apple introduces NFC/more RAM/a free pony with every order? ;-) Sound off with us, we’d love to know!

Every now and then, you run into one of those components that, despite (or perhaps because of) its incredible simplicity, manages to define for you how a certain interaction should work.

I think that Sebastiao Gazolla has done exactly this for the humble color pi...


Punctuated Gradualism and iPhone 5

Aaron Brethorst | September 14, 2012

Unless you were living under a rock this week1, you’ve heard about Apple’s introduction of the iPhone 5. Some people labeled it a disappointment due to the lack of surprise around its features. The rumor mill was exceptionally thorough this year, even producing spot-on mockups from repair parts. Others were disappointed that Apple continues to produce incremental upgrades year after year.

Aaron Brethorst | September 09, 2012

We’ve been periodically highlighting multiple controls of the week over the past few weeks. This week is no different, except for a small twist. This week we’re highlighting the three components from the absolutely incredible-looking app, Kodiak PHP, that the team graciously open-sourced.

Hello, welcome to another Cocoa Controls roundup, and—for all of you here in the United States—happy Labor Day! I hope you get to take the day off, do some barbecuing, and relax. Or at least hack on fun projects. I’ll probably be doing more of the latter :)

I posted a question on Twitter the other day that I wanted to ask here, too. We’re looking at doing some pretty nifty CocoaPods integration into Co...
