Hey Instagram, can we talk about your still-missing iPad app?

I've been using Instagram for a long time. I almost always post my photos to Instagram and then share from there to Facebook and Twitter. I use it enough that I've become somewhat inured to its common limitations — its rough edges and brick walls — most people run into every day. Hearing John Gruber discuss them with Ben Thompson on The Talk Show this week, however, made them all front-of-mind for me again. As such, here are five frustrations I currently have that I'd like to see Instagram tackle this year.

Nothing's thoroughly changed about the Pandora service, but the app itself has had a thorough revamp. Now sporting a stark white/gray/blue color scheme that's much more in line with the new interface style introduced with iOS 7, Pandora Radio 5.7 also sports a few new features that make things a bit easier when it comes to building your own streaming radio station.

How to save high-resolution versions of your Instagram photos

How to save high-resolution versions of your Instagram photos

Once you've posted a photo using Instagram, the incredibly popular social photo network, it's locked into its tiny filtered form. Instagram doesn't even let you download it after the fact — you need to screenshot it or resort to a third-part ripper, even for your own photos. What Instagram does let you do, however, is set it to save a high resolution "2048x2048" version of your final, filtered photo to your camera roll as you post it. (I put the resolution in quotes because it really seems to vary, sometimes a bit lower, sometimes higher.) To save those original photos, all you have to do is enable the feature.

Well, they've been resolved and Tweetbot is now back for the Mac.

Building classic Mac OS apps in OS X

Building classic Mac OS apps in OS X

We live in a modern era of Mac development, but behind that there's 30 years of legacy dating back to the original Mac in 1984. It's easy to ignore the millions upon millions of lines of code that have been written for Mac operating systems from System 1.0 forward, but you do so at the peril of forgetting just how flexible and elegant a framework Apple had developed over the years.

How to keep your iPhone happy during a blizzard

How to keep your iPhone happy during a blizzard

There's a literal storm coming to my not-so-tiny little corner of the world, and various reports have it pegged as "record-breaking," "devastating," and "potentially catastrophic." Happy January 26 to you too, weather service!

As someone who works at home within walking distance of food and water, I don't have to worry much about driving or supreme amounts of shoveling, but I do have to consider my electronics — which not only let me continue to do my job properly, but also let me read Twitter and play Hearthstone and communicate with the outside world while the blizzard does its thing.
