SnapUp

It was really discouraging to launch the app and be told I’m in line behind 27k people.  But just as quickly, SnapUp took the opportunity to fly past almost everyone in exchange for a tweet.  Right after that, it let me in I’ll take it.

iOS Settings

This is another case where it took Apple an oddly long time to get something right.

Since the first version of iOS, apps in Settings have been sorted by date downloaded, which was great for freshly installed apps, but painful for everything else.  The switch to alphanumeric sort makes this a lot easier to quickly find settings for any app.

Beats Music

The recurring theme of early adopter problems: your friends just aren’t here yet.  It’s cool that Beats took the opportunity to make me laugh about it though.  Maybe in a future iteration they could suggest second-degree connections or people I may know that I just don’t follow on Twitter.

The Rap Test
I think asking for my email upfront in apps has become an anti-pattern.  I want to actually try your thing before I hand over the goods.
On #TheRapTest, only after I decide that I want to join the leaderboard am I asked for my email.  By that point I’ve made achievements in the game and am already invested — I’d love to.
