Should I ever find myself at a low moment, I will find solace in the fact I will never go as low as having to inform people that they were be mistakenly hopeful that my shitty iPhone notes app is back.

Who even still has Vesper installed so that they would see an update?

Oh, don't be so modest. Go ahead and take credit. You deserve it.

Apple should recompile the app without their sacred expensive Font

Don't worry everybody, Vesper is well and truly dead. But still available on the App Store! (Complete with message stating it will be removed from the App Store September 30, 2016.)

Of course, it won't have our bespoke cloud syncing service (another brilliant business idea, by the way).

If only someone had told us what "sustainable business" meant. Then again, we assumed this note-taking app, one among thousands on the app store, would rise above all the others because people could SEE (after laying down $10+ to download it) how much more craft and thoughtful consideration (and licensed fonts) went into its design.

Huh. Well that explains an update I got for one of the Cut the Rope games. Update notes said it had new levels, but when I went to play it, there were no new ones. And the "update" was dated a year ago. Confused the fuck outta me.

Are comments here left exclusively by people who hate John Gruber? Seems that way. Do you people have nothing better to do?

We don't all hate John, some of us just find him entertaining. Though he definitely peaked many years ago.
