Best New Apps: Overcast for iPhone
If you have an iPhone, you should download Overcast, the new podcast app from Instapaper creator and Tumblr co-founder Marco Arment. Podcast clients are a crowded category, of course, and it’s harder than ever to stand out now that Apple offers its own free solution. But Overcast sets itself apart with thoughtful design, original features, and smart ideas — and it costs nothing to check out.

Overcast from Marco Arment looks really good. But if it just isn’t your bag, the in-app Settings screen recommends other third-party podcast apps you might like. How classy is that? Extremely.

    SURFACE PRESSURE FOR PENCIL.
    COMING THIS FALL.

    Pencil, called “the best iPad stylus” by Wired and The Verge, is about to get better. Today we’re excited to announce Surface Pressure, a new feature that uses Pencil’s uniquely-designed tip. Surface Pressure comes to Pencil with the release of iOS 8 this Fall.

    Same Pencil, More Expressive

    Pencil’s tapered tip was inspired by the expressive richness of real pencil points, which allow creators to change the character of the line with the angle of the tip. With Surface Pressure you’ll be able to control the lines you create based on how much of Pencil’s tip or eraser is in contact with your iPad. Use the point for fine details or the angled edge for broad strokes. Surface Pressure unlocks new capabilities for each of Paper's toolsfill faster as you draw, shade as you sketch, or carve away in varying widths as you erase.

    Stay in the flow and change drawing styles simply by changing the way you hold Pencilno stopping to fuss with the settings menu. This new feature is unique to Pencil and will be unlocked for all existing Pencil users with an update to Paper this Fall.

    Commitment to Customers Old and New

    We’re committed to always improving the products we build—not only for new creators, but for everyone who’ve been with us since day one. Pencil launched last November with palm rejection, flip-to-erase, and blend as core features. Surface Pressure builds on Pencil’s simplicity by unlocking a new spectrum of expressive possibilities.

    Surface Pressure will come as a free software upgrade to the original Pencil this Fall with the release of iOS 8. U.S. and Canada customers can buy Pencil now on our online Store and on Amazon. We’re working hard to bring Pencil to international customers, too. Sign up to be notified when it’s available near you.

    I’ve been learning Swift over the last week and enjoying it greatly.

    It’s interesting to me there weren’t any WWDC sessions about parallelism, whereas it’s been a major theme in previous years. As far as I can tell it’s also been glossed over with regards to Swift, for instance the…

The 22 most important things Apple announced today Apple kicked off its Worldwide Developer Conference with a glimpse into the future of OS X, iOS 8, and the developer tools that bring them to life. OS X 10.10 Yosemite and iOS 8 bring the desktop and mobile device closer together than they’ve ever been before, and a host of new developer tools should enable the creation of some powerful new apps.
