7 Things This Week [#98]

A weekly list of interesting things I found on the internet, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.

1️⃣ JamesG made a neat little tool that analyzes the words used on a given webpage. 🔗 JamesG // linguist.link

2️⃣ Gui Rambo had his own desktop widget solution up his sleeve, and it looks incredible. macOS 14 might have gotten there first, but it sounds like he’s still shipping it for previous OS versions. Honestly, his custom ones look way cooler. [🔗 Guilherme Rambo // micro.blog]

3️⃣ I actually know about some of the winners of the Apple Design Awards this year! I’ve seen Universe, Duolingo, Flighty, Headspace, and MARVEL SNAP. There are really special apps here. [🔗 apple.com]

4️⃣ Zach Gage used ChatGPT to create a little script that reads his apps’ reviews, forwards on the good ones, tones down the negative ones to actionable bug fixes, and emails them to him. I’m so impressed at the creativity here, and he said it only took 10 minutes. [🔗 @helvetica // mastodon.gamedev.place]

5️⃣ Quinn Nelson’s entertaining recap of WWDC has been my favorite so far. He’s so good at weaving in his opinion and expert commentary alongside listing all the new features. (It’s long, so I recommend setting it to 1.5x if you can stand it.) [⏯️ Snazzy Labs // youtube.com]

6️⃣ I figured Apple’s intro video for the Vision Pro would just be a replay of what they showed in the keynote. It’s so much more! If you want a better sense of what it’ll be like to actually use the headset (sound design, interaction, UI elements) set aside nine minutes to watch this. [⏯️ Apple // youtube.com]

7️⃣ If you like The Beths, you’ve gotta check out their NPR Tiny Desk Concert. Even if you don’t like The Beths, you should still give it a watch. 😝 [🎵 NPR Music // youtube.com]
