9: Bar Analogy
This week begins with some follow-up about Zach’s talk at Cocoaheads. Minimal homework was also completed as we tried Twist and Microsoft Teams. Zach is horrified to learn that Kai and Malin store git repositories in online sync systems, and we speculate about when Apple might announce the next iPhone(s). The main topic this week is Twitter alternatives - the things we’ve tried, and the things we like. As always, we wrap up by adding another three apps to our list.
