Lovely walk today. I find it mind blowing that the sun shining up there is a star and we’re whizzing around it at circa 67,000 MPH, but also mind blowing that most people don’t even ponder that fact and seem to spend a lot of time worrying about trivialities.

Fantastical 3 😄 Another subscription model 😟 I’m afraid I’m about done with paying subs for apps. More than happy to pay one-off costs for apps and additional for upgrades, but that’s it. 9to5mac.com

Comment: I don’t think subscription apps are a sustainable business model

Is there really no keyboard shortcut on the iOS Gmail app to delete an email when using an external keyboard? It says I can use #, but pressing that does nothing for me - tried all other modifiers with it and nothing seems to work. Someone please put me out of misery!

One of the most useful apps I own - I use it to read my RSS feed articles, Apple News+ articles etc when out walking. Currently half price. App Shopper: Voice Dream Reader (Education)
