Bridges for Mac

Today I’m thrilled to announce the first beta for Bridges on the Mac! The Mac has always been an important platform on the roadmap for me. I initially built Bridges for the iPhone but the goal was to have it on every major Apple platform. Today users get to download and use Bridges on iPhone, iPad and Mac. Bridges is an app I wanted for myself for a long time. I wanted something quick and focused that helped me save formatted links for podcast show notes. … »

What are their end goals or what do they let you tackle next? Being an indie developer or making anything yourself requires lots of discipline. … »

I would be making it too hot with Xcode or it wouldn’t be fast enough. After I got my M1 MacBook Air this stopped. I didn’t feel the urge to upgrade all the time. I could build the apps I had in my head and my Mac could keep up with me. … »
