Another year, another review. I’ll mostly stick to the format of last year’s review and present to you my own “best of” lists.

Here are some quick tips for macOS users. Most of them are shortcuts that I use on a daily basis. I’ll throw essential tips in as well so that everyone is up to speed but maybe you can find some hidden gems. :wink:

The Shit Is Hot


The Shit Is Hot is my first browser game, based on the segment Der Scheiß ist heiß on NEO MAGAZIN ROYALE. You have to guess how many hits the shown words generate in a search engine and then place them in the correct order. This blog post is in German since this game is inspired by a German late-night talk show.

Reviewing 2017


I'd like to take a moment and look back on 2017. I've been quite busy establishing a company with my colleagues. It's challenging but rewarding. I'll summarize some highlights of Skymatic and I think it'd be fun to create my own "best of" lists.

How time flies! Spectrum Run was released a year ago. It’s time for a new blog post on my current developments. What happened in the meantime? Updates, other apps, iOS 7 (oh boy…), lots of prototyping / “hidden” development, Tobi’s Weekly [Update: Removed], and of course I still have to study. :laughing:

Updates, Updates, Updates


I haven’t been really creative in the last couple of days/weeks. I guess I had to step back a little from all the hard work. There is no way I can stop completely though, because I enjoy coding and designing apps too much! :smile:

What I've Learned from tooPassword's Release


Trust is hard to gain. Security of passwords is a very sensitive subject. People believe we are hackers, crackers or something like that. Kerckhoffs’s principle is a good read, why we’re not breaching any security. Even AgileBits blogged about us, because people were complaining. Communication solves a lot of misund...
