1. More awful recipe site , this time even worse with both a near-opaque overlay and one of those stupid app download plea things.

    When will these people realise that, having clicked on a recipe permalink from a search engine, the task in my mind is “learn about a recipe”. Viewing an app in the App Store (yep, that’s not even a download button, so there’s another useless step) or going to a completely different website is not going to help me achieve that task.

    Then again, neither is writing this note. But it’s good therapy, and works up an appetite for the tasty wraps I’m about to make…

    Update: I only just noticed that the app plea is for a *paid* app — even less relevant to the task in hand.

  2. Chris Messina™: Pondering Jenna Wortham ♥'s query "Are We Suffering From Mobile App Burnout?” on Branch. What's your take? branch.com/b/digital-diar…

    .@chrismessina briefly: I agree that, whilst I have a fair number of apps installed, very few of them get regular use. Interestingly IME there is little/no correlation between cost of app and frequency of use (my most expensive apps are music creation ones which get used rarely compared to, e.g. tweetbot, mail or safari).

    I also like some of @scottjenson’s thinking around JIT interactions. Certainly that approach has applications outside the .

    This evening’s hacking is based around parsing and importing my diagnostic data — should be interesting to see if I can find any behavioural patterns.

    (btw, I refuse to sign in to branch with twitter so they can send a tweet for me so you can let me write on your branch. Just… no :)
