Today I used Adobe XD for whole day. Felt it’s really competitive to Sketch app on Mac.
I really avoided using Adobe XD all this years because of Adobe Subscription TAX which normally cost me INR 5,000/- here in India. But loved Sketch App’s payment model which is almost INR 5,000/ for year then you can renew subscription or use it without update as long as you want.
But loved Adobe XD compatibility and integration with Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, it is real smooth and well done. Adobe XD’s prototype tool is smooth.
Best advice I ever received about designing logos and symbols is use humanistic elements / curves / lines in your design and totally avoid mechanical drawings. As mechanical drawings can be taken care by computer itself.
This advice was given to me by Shirbhavikar sir and Pawar sir when I was doing BFA Applied Arts at Sir J. J. Institute of Applied Art.
It seems I don’t follow this advice totally in my drawings / designs and illustrations. Even after 4 years of my graduation when I met Mahendra Patel sir at his SID office he told me the same.
I was planning for long time but never implemented Google Analytics for my Apple iOS Apps to get real data about my app usage. I thought it was more of work to implement analytics in app with framework using cocoa-pods which will in a way will slowdown my app performance.
But with the news of Apple is vary serious about and already is about privacy and data collection with online ads for Safari Browser on Mac and system wide privacy settings on Apple iOS 14 for iPhone. I am happy that I never implemented third party analytics framework or never added ad network to get revenue out of my apps. My apps are already paid and I don’t want to mess-up user experience with impromptu in-app advertisements.

Since iPhone X, Apple is releasing various sizes of iPhone with a notch.
So Identifying new iPhones that have a notch or doesn’t is a new problem for every Apple App Store App Developer. e.g. Apple has just released in 2020 with iPhone 12, Pro, Pro Max and Mini that are not similar in screen dimensions of previous generations of iPhone 11.
After reading and surfing the web I found two helpful articles on the web that will guide you to solve this problem one post was on Stack Overflow and another article by @cafielo.
But code shared in above both articles were not compatible with new Apple iOS versions 13 and 14.
So I rewrote those code that may be compatible with Apple iOS 13 and 14 operating system.
After the release of new macOS Catalina or any other Mac operating system I sometimes prefer clean install of the latest operating system on my iMac / MacBook / MacBook Pro or Mac Pro.
I back up all of the current user home folders on external storage or external hard disk or external solid-state drive.
Once the operating system is installed on ‘Macintosh HD’ and admin user account created on Mac now it’s time to start transferring data from the external drive to Mac’s user home folder.
Once you are ready with account already setup then follow these steps to transfer music.
Step 01: Copy your old ‘iTunes’ folder to your user’s Music folder located at e.g. User > Music > iTunes
Step 02: Hold down the ‘Option’ key while opening the Apple ‘Music’ app from the dock or application folder. You will be presented with a dialogue box called ‘Choose Music Library. Now click on button ‘Choose Library’.
