In this episode, the guys return from hiatus to break down WWDC from a developers standpoint. No cheese graters were harmed or joked about in the making of this episode.

It wouldn't be SharedInstance if they didn't talk about emoji at all. There's not too much news, so Sam puts on his tinfoil hat, Argo comes up with a totally unoriginal get-rich-quick scheme, and Alex tells us about an intriguing App architecture book.
First, Alex and Sam convince Argo that Kotlin has more promise than he thought. After that the guys discuss the latest round of news on App Store templates and "Design Spam" rejections. Finally, everyone revisits their 2017 goals they set at the beginning of the year.
Argo complains about people conflating the App Store Review and Human Interface Guidelines, and then the whole gang discuss whether there is much ado about iOS app architecture. They also discuss some of the tradeoffs between emergent design and having a common architecture in different type of shops.
The guys give an update on their usage of tvOS and discuss the current state of the OS. They also touch on Microsoft acquiring Xamarin, stumble through some react native stuff, and talk about IBM and their swift contributions.
All of the guys were/will be at least briefly affected by the looming Parse shutdown. They discuss the shutdown itself, and what to do in the future for apps that need a backend / apps that need to be migrated off of Parse.
The guys chat about 360iDev and conferences in general. They also hit on a few topics related to releasing apps including App Store Review, automating your submissions, and even prototyping apps at the beginning.
This week we hit on a number of topics ranging from the Spring Event to Swift on other platforms to a lengthy discussion on our pics of the week. Plus there's a cool Easter egg hidden in one of our links today.
Up this week we talk about the imminent release of the Apple Watch. Then we speculate on the Apple Car and what it might be like if Microsoft had made one. Lastly, thoughts from the diaspora of various beta distribution and crash reporting left by the demise of TestflightApp.com
In this episode we’re down one Alex but Sam & Alex Argo manage to discuss various topics trending in the iOS and mobile world from the past week. React Native from Facebook was first up followed by a discussion about life & revenue on the App Store. They then discuss their opinions on the new iOS Beta 5 and WatchKit. Finally a discussion around an interesting tool to help identify all of the Copy Pasta in a larger app evolved out of a couple edited awkward moments.
