Released today on the App Store as a new, iOS 8-only, and Universal app, Drafts 4 is an evolution which boasts a huge number of improvements and represents a much needed shift in direction.

I really like Drafts. I’m excited to see how this update improves the functionality of the app as well as my usage. There is a helpful review on MacStories that you should check out.

In this post, you’ll find dozens and dozens of tips, tricks, and details of iOS 8 that we’ve collected throughout the summer since the first beta release of iOS 8.

Iphone 6

by Cam on October 5, 2014 in Tech

My iPhone 6 arrives in about 12 days and I’m incredibly excited to upgrade from my 5. Here is what I’m especially looking forward to:

– better camera
– better battery
– Touch ID
– M8 processor

I don’t know how I will feel about the bigger form factor. I assume that the bigger screen will be nicer for reading, gaming, and photo framing but not great for fitting in my pocket comfortably and inconspicuously.

When the phone arrives I’ll make sure to share my thoughts and experiences.

I Wrote An Action For Launch Center Pro

by Cam on August 30, 2014 in Apps

I wrote a Launch Center Pro action for Quotebook. You can find it here.

Quotebook is an app that lets you collect, organize and easily share quotes that are special to you. It's a good looking app that serves a very specific purpose…my favorite kind of app.

Launch Center Pro is a powerhouse app. It allows me to do my most common actions in a fraction of the time. You should check it out, it's completely changed how I use my iOS devices.

This action is great example of what LCP allows you to do. Open LCP, tap an icon, enter the pertinent info, hit launch and your quote in Quotebook is finished in just a few seconds. If you can add your quote to the clipboard from a different app, you'll save even more time.

I'd love to know what you think about the action. How can it be improved? Do you find it useful?

A Few Thoughts From/On Today’s Sermon

by Cam on August 17, 2014 in Church, Theology

Jude 1.24-25

[24]Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, [25]to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.

Matthew 7.24-27

[24]“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. [25]And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. [26]And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. [27]And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”

The Gospel = we are presented before God as blameless, without fault and with joy.

Stand firm in the storm. Our present circumstances, good or bad, do not dictate God’s presence. He is present always: Our anchor in the storm, our solid rock, our firm foundation.

Revelation 5.13

[13]And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”

All glory, praise, honor, authority, power, and worship is due to God. No one and nothing else comes within a comparable scope. He is the saving God, the one true God, our creator and sustainer.
