Issue 68 features three games to kill the time

It’s Game Day in Switch to iPad #68, with three games to kill the time. This from the first game, Clap Hanz Golf:

I’ve spent a lot of time with Clap Hanz Golf the last few weeks. I played it a bit when it launched on Apple Arcade (yep, you’ll need a subscription to play this one), but then fell out of it. It’s gotten several updates since then, and whatever the reason was to stop playing this game, it’s seemingly gone.

If you recognize the style of Clap Hanz Golf, you might’ve played another golf series called Everybody’s Golf or Hot Shots Golf, depending on your region. Clap Hanz is the developer of said series, which was (is?) published by Sony for various PlayStation platforms. They’re great games, especially the two that was released for PlayStation Portable.

Switch to iPad #67: This is how I write it all

It’s Wednesday, and that means that it’s time for another issue of the Switch to iPad newsletter. This time, it’s all about how I write both it, and this very site.

From the introduction:

I’m sitting here, typing out today’s issue of Switch to iPad. That’s not how I usually do it, typically what you get in your inbox (or read in the archives, if that’s your fancy) is written the Sunday or Monday before. The past couple of weeks have been a mess, though, thanks to both work and contractors at home, so I’ve fallen out of my groove, so to speak.

What better time to tell you all about how I write Switch to iPad, then?

Switch to iPad #67 is available in the archives for all paying subscribers. Do consider subscribing, if you have already.

It’s all about Notes in Switch to iPad #66

Apple keeps updating the default Notes app, and it’s really getting there. I’ve gushed about the new Quick Note feature already, but that’s not all you can do with Notes.

Switch to iPad #66 is another How do I… installment, all about Notes. This time, it’s paying subscribers only, so if you’re not one of those, do consider signing up. There’s a free trial and everything.

Thoughts on yesterday’s Apple Event

This week’s Switch to iPad newsletter is free for all to read. It starts something like this:

Yesterday was Apple Event day, and while it wasn’t exactly packed with surprises, it was a pretty solid one, I think. If you doubted there’d be an iPhone 13 (regular, mini, Pro and Pro Max), you can rest assured, everything is as expected.

Both the iPad and the iPad mini got updates, something I’m a lot more excited about. So let’s talk a little about those.

Apple announce ”California Streaming” event for next week

It’s time to start up the hype train because next week is Apple Event week! The event, titled “California Streaming”, will be broadcast online (i.e., not an in-person event this time either) on Tuesday 10am PDT. The Apple Events page is updated so that you can easily add the event to your calendar in your local time, should you (like me) not be in the PDT zone, and being too lazy (like me) to calculate the time offset.
