The present and future of Vesper for iOS 7

Vesper gets a lot of attention because it's crafted by well-known personalities in the Apple community, namely Brent Simmons, Dave Wiskus, and John Gruber. Part of the reason they're well-known, however, is because they're not only capable of great craft, but of explaining the creative and business processes behind it. That makes it as valuable as them. Cases in point, Brent Simmons technical details on Vesper 007's iOS 7 implementation on Inessential:

Vesper goes 003, adds support, Text Expander support

Talk about turn-around time, no sooner did Vesper 1.002 fix some iOS 7 compatibility issues, than Vesper 1.003 comes along and adds Text Expander support. While iOS includes its own auto-correction feature that can do some of the same things, any Mac user worth their geek cred already lives in Text Expander, and this way all existing snippets will "just work" in Vesper, the same way they do everywhere else. Typing ubiquity.

Vesper for iPhone review: Collect your thoughts with one part notes app, one part lists app, shaken, not stirred

Vesper -- Brent Simmons, Dave Wiskus, and John Gruber's Vesper -- is part list-maker and part note-taker, and so strongly opinionated about how it balances both that you'll fall instantly in love... or want to kill it on sight. This isn't your UIKit convention, your lowest common denominator, or any other concession to the mass-market. Everything about Vesper, every choice about every feature, liberates only through constraint. Because it allows for just a very small set of very deliberate actions, Vesper frees you from the cognitive overhead of managing the management app, and forces you to simply fulfill its purpose -- collecting your thoughts.
