    @chriskrycho @oluseyi @jmreekes Agreed. HipChat is actually the best-designed of all their products, in my opinion. But Slack is so polished.

      Apple car speculation, the upcoming Apple Watch launch, and the idea of overpaying by $10,000 for your next Apple gadget... Those topics and more on Core Intuition 173 [coreint.org].

        Slack is a lot more successful than I thought they'd be [slackhq.com], now with 500,000 daily active users and $12 million in yearly revenue. But it's well-deserved. Such a great product.

          On the latest Core Intuition [www.coreint.org], we follow up on App Store rejections, react to Swift 1.2 and Tim Cook's recent comments, and discuss new blogging systems.

                @clarkgoble Yep. I love MarsEdit.

                  @keita That’s true. There’s kind of simultaneously too things going on: some authors want a return to basics and simplicity, and some want new features that old software doesn’t help with.

                    @jussipekonen Thanks. And that’s it exactly. Sometimes we forget that web sites die all the time. If we want our writing to last, we have to control it.

                      @mttmccb Yeah, I’ve been trying to take everything out of my menu bar that I don’t use every day. Still a little crowded.

                        "I arrange all the app icons in my dock by color because that’s the only way I’ll remember where everything is." — Faith Korpi on The Sweet Setup [thesweetsetup.com]. (After reading this I started arranging my icons the same way. I like it.)

                          @clarkgoble I think Twitterrific for Mac is still written in it, but not sure that will continue… Doesn’t seem actively maintained, like you said.

                            @mcdemarco No problem. I think sticking with iOS 7 and 8 for this makes sense for a while longer.

                              @cparnot I’m not sure if I convinced them of anything. :-) But yes, it was approved and went live in the store without further comment. The process is mysterious… I may still change the app later if it’s ever rejected for this again.

                                @jussipekonen Thanks, sorry that's still broken. I've made a note to fix it. (I think it can be fixed without a new version of the iOS app.)

                                  After a week hanging around in Apple's Resolution Center, Sunlit 1.3 was approved and went live in the App Store last night. http://sunlit.io/

                                    @jussipekonen Thanks! I think so, but now that you mention it I'm not sure if that was a server or client fix... If you have any problems, let me know via support@riverfold.com and I'll make sure it really gets fixed.

                                      On this week's episode of Core Intuition [coreint.org], Daniel and I talk about some setbacks while trying to ship updates to our apps, sending users to Safari on iOS, and a listener question about promoting your app to the press.
