A chemistry keyboard for iOS. Say what one will about the buggy keyboard APIs, but there’s some real clever innovation out there.
Change the Yosemite system font from Helvetica to Fira. I swear sometimes I think I’m the only one who liked Helvetica. Yes it’s slightly less readable as a system font but I can always tell at a glance what it says. Especially for repeated menus.
The perils of writing a 3rd party keyboard. Sounds like Apple’s third party keyboard APIs just aren’t ready for prime time. As you might expect given App Store dynamics the developers get all the blame.

Get the old Get Info window back in iTunes 12. I actually prefer the new one, but I agree that having to click “add field” is annoying.

In case you missed it in all the news of today, Swift is now 1.0 and final. Now on to 2.0 and a yield statement for generators.
