    Former Apple employee here — the majority of the time Apple Refurbished Products are items customers returned before the 14-day return policy. Apple can't sell as new anymore , so they inspect the product and sell at a discounted price.

    Thanks for sharing your site! Do you know if anything like a Codepen / JSFiddle tool exists for iOS development i.e. where iOS developers share code? Is that even possible due to browser capabilities?

    Anyone successfully use an iPad Pro for Web Dev.? I mostly use CodePen (unusable on touch devices) and Brackets for my code editor. I had the last gen iPad Pro and ended up selling it since it was mostly a coffee table item and couldn't justify keeping it for the price when I already have a Mac and iPhone. However, with tools like full-fledge Photoshop making their way to iOS, it might be time to re-purchase.

    Things like using it as a trackpad, additional display, etc. are all just a gimmick. Yes—the fast wire framing was pretty cool when using tools like Paper by 53, but it's not as convenient when using in the real world i.e. meetings, client reviews, etc. Everyone usually participates in these instances, so it's not like they're are going to hover over an iPad and ideate. The whiteboard is still the better option. I'm not an illustrator, so it's not useful to me as a drawing tablet.

    I just recently purchased and sold an iPad Pro. Here are my takeaways:

    It's a nice device—it really is. But I couldn't due much with it when it comes to my profession (UI Designer first, Front End Dev. beginner/intermediate second). I couldn't even use CodePen on it :-/ There's no UI Design tool available for it that I'm aware of. It's great if you're a traditional artist/illustrator or write articles for a living. And of course, it's great for anything else related to everyday tasks like browsing, paying bills, FaceTime, etc. So no—I don't believe you can make anything remotely close to a final release product on it.

    I don't dislike it, but in 2018, we need a dark UI.

    Is it just me? I don't see it when searching for Framer Syntax or Framer UI.

    EDIT: Search results now display framer-syntax and framer-ui.

    Agree. I've only used it for a couple of weeks and I can't imagine my workflow without out it. Sketch 49 broke it, but the developer made sure to update it ASAP. If I would have missed this being shared here weeks ago, I would have never known about it. So share away...
