Meet LinkBoard: LifeBoard Reimagined

LifeBoard hasn’t had the easiest life. It originally launched as my first paid app, but I decided to make it free after the launch of Violoncello. After that, it was always a bit of an afterthought for me, especially once I started getting into iOS development. On top of all of that, it was becoming increasingly clear that LifeBoard was lacking some much-needed direction. So, at long last, I have gone ahead and reimagined what LifeBoard can be. It’s still very much the LifeBoard you may know and love, but a lot has also changed. The result of this rethinking is LinkBoard: a new way to save links for later.

Why Links?
What makes LinkBoard more appealing than simply dropping a link in a notes app or bookmarks manager? Quite a few things, actually! Here are some of them:
  • All sorts of links: LinkBoard lets you store links to websites, email addresses, locations, and phone numbers. It’s very handy to be able to save so many different types of links in one place!
  • Filter links: Whether it be with a simple search, via type, or by category you assign, there are plenty of ways to filter and find the links you need!
  • Share to LinkBoard: This has to be one of my favorite new LinkBoard features. Essentially, it lets you share any sort of link or place to the app so you can add it to your board. It’s quick, easy, and makes using the app a lot more convenient.
Free Upgrade?
LinkBoard has been released as an update to LifeBoard, and it can still be downloaded for free. It’s also worth noting that I have not introduced any in-app purchases or upgrades at this time. Just make sure that you save any important notes on your LifeBoard before you update, as they'll disappear when you upgrade to LinkBoard.

The Conclusion
Overall, I’m super excited to see how LinkBoard evolves over the coming weeks, months, and years! For now, I didn't get to mention all of LinkBoard's handy new features and improvements in this post, but I think I was able to cover most of the important stuff. You can discover the rest yourself by downloading LinkBoard from the Play Store. I hope you like it, and thanks for reading!

Late 2014 Mac mini in 2021 - How does it hold up?

Nearly two months ago, I finally got my first Mac: a late 2014 Mac mini. While I usually don't review stuff on this blog, I thought I would make an exception for this device. My hope is that this review will be helpful and fairly unbiased while helping you make a decision on whether or not to get one of these Macs. So, how does this miniature Macintosh hold up today? Design The Mac mini's design has remained largely unchanged over the last decade. There have been a few small updates and tweaks to it, but nothing particularly major. This means that the 2014 Mac mini features the usual premium and minimal aluminum casing with a white status LED on the front. Overall, I'd say this Mac mini's design has held up pretty well! It's very small, being only 8 inches wide and long, while only having a height of 1.4 inches. It weighs a little over 2.5 pounds, so it's not too heavy, either. These dimensions make for a very nice and compact computer, and I think it fits in wi

I made a custom iPod. Should you?

I made a custom iPod. Should you? The goal of this post is to share my experience modding this retro audio player and help you decide if you should attempt this project, too. While this isn't the sort of thing I usually write about on this blog, my hope is that this post will be helpful to those interested in building a custom iPod. So, without further ado, let's begin! The Backstory With the rise of DankPods , modding iPods has quickly become quite popular among retro tech enthusiasts. As someone who had been using iPods for several years prior to their resurgence in popularity, I was intrigued by the idea of making my own custom iPod. This was especially true since I had a broken iPod Video that I could easily mod. Then, something completely unexpected happened: the pandemic. I quickly realized that this would be a great project to work on during the lockdown. As a result, within days of everything shutting down, I had ordered all my replacement parts and prepared

3 years, 2 iOS apps, and a new site

In March of 2018, I wrote my first Tectra program. It was a basic web browser called Satin Web, and it was the first thing I made with C# and Windows Forms. It is now March 2021, three years later, and I am very excited to announce that the next chapter for Tectra is here. After hours of work, I have finally completed my first two iOS apps and have created a new site from scratch to go along with them. There is a lot to cover, so let's begin! iOS Apps TaskNudge TaskNudge is the first of my two iOS apps. It's pretty simple but very handy! Essentially, it lets you write a single, short-term task and get notified to complete it every 1-60 minutes, depending on what you choose. If you are easily distracted when you use your devices, have trouble remembering to do things, or need a bit of a nudge to get something done, TaskNudge might just be the app for you! Best of all, TaskNudge is very simple and easy to use, while being more useful than something like a timer or alarm. Once you
