Debug 1: Loren Brichter of Letterpress

Hey, we have an all-new podcast! It's called Debug. I'm co-hosting it with Guy English of Kicking Bear. It focuses on development, especially iPhone, iPad, Mac, and game development, but we'll be covering other platforms as well. Where Iterate is all about designers, Debug is for developers. Think of it as director's commentary for your apps! And we managed to score a seriously special guest to help us kick off. So without further ado, here's s01e01:

Guy and Rene talk to Loren Brichter of Atebits about working on the iPhone at Apple, Tweetie at Twitter, and now Letterpress on his own. OpenGL, Game Center API, in-app purchases, iOS 7 feature requests, and other assorted nerdery follows.

How to replace the cellular antenna in an iPhone 4S

If you've got an iPhone 4S and you're experiencing issues with reception, the cellular antenna may be the culprit. If you no longer have AppleCare or insurance to cover it, a DIY repair isn't terribly hard to perform as long as you've got a little technical how know. Symptoms of a bad cellular antenna can vary from no service to service cutting in and out consistently.

If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, continue on and we'll walk you through how to replace it yourself.

Why Apple couldn't make the iPad mini with a Retina display

The iPad mini doesn't have a Retina display, and that's left it and Apple open to a lot of criticism. It's easy to say the iPad mini should have a Retina display, but unfortunately for Apple and for us, it's not so easy to engineer. It comes at a cost. I've mentioned that before in passing, but given the press it's still getting, over a week over launch, it bears repeating.

iPhone 5 vs. Lumia 920: Which phone should you get?

Apple has released the iPhone 5 and Nokia and Microsoft have now matched it with their flagship Lumia 920. Where Apple's offering is unbelievably sleek and slim, Nokia's is proudly big and thick. Where Apple is glass and aluminum, Nokia is a polycarbonate that feel not of this earth. Where Apple made their camera thinner, Nokia made theirs much, much better. Where Apple offers the textures and gradients of iOS, Nokia is all in on the flat panoramas of Windows Phone. Physically and philosophically, the iPhone 5 and Lumia 920 couldn't be more different in every way but their relentless pursuit of ease of use. So how can you choose between them?

Let's find out!

Extreme Road Trip 2 is an endless survival game where you must get your car to travel as far as possible while also doing flips, wheelies, completing challenges, and more.

No skin in the Game Center

Speaking of successes and failures, I dislike it when it feels like I care more about an app or service than the developer or platform owner. It sets off huge warning bells and sends me looking for alternatives. Apple is starting to give me that feeling with Game Center. Since Letterpress launched, a game that depends entirely on Apple's Game Center application programming interfaces (APIs) for everything from matchmaking to gameplay, Game Center reliability has taken a nose dive. For several hours this weekend, I once again had more Game Center errors than successful turns.
