Don’t be too hard on yourself for not preparing for being unemployed. I think most people with long careers will end up unexpectedly unemployed at some point, and you can’t know when it’s going to happen. I certainly have — a company I was working for ended up losing a huge client, and had to fire half their staff within the next couple of weeks. I was part of the cull, and I’d just bought a house, and had a large mortgage to pay off. It happens, and you have to do what you can to survive. If friends and family can help you get through the rough patch, don’t be too proud to accept their help (but make sure you remember what they did for you afterwards).
Things will get better.
Yep, but that data isn't part of the binary or App Store download. My podcast app of choice is 48.3MB.
Yep, but they still take up disk space, and the bundle size likely reflects memory usage as well.
I’d love to see a breakdown of where the space is used. My guess is that it’s not image assets or sound effects. I bet it’s all large library includes.
Honestly though, if your app is over 100MB and not Photoshop or Maya or Final Cut Pro X or a AAA game, you probably need to do some serious optimising and take a close look at the junk you’re including.
Yep, that’s pretty much the situation. There’s lots of non-Retina displays, and almost no true Retina displays (if you’re lucky enough to have a Mac that can run one anyway).
This video makes me want a desktop PC that’s just an Xbox One X, with some extra bits. Charge me $999 for it, if you want, Microsoft!
Probably not Font Book. :D
Ok, fair enough! I used to use Font Explorer X, but that was back in the days when I did more print design, and had to constantly play with different fonts, and auto-enable helped with that.
Now I’m mostly working on products, so they only need to deal with a very limited range of fonts.
Honest question: Which features do you want that Font Book doesn’t cover? Auto-enabling? The ability to handle 1000s of fonts well? Network sync?
Just asking, because I find Font Book is enough for me these days.
How to convince your manager?
