Quotebook 3: Coming Soon

Icon

If you’ve been paying attention on Twitter, you may know that we’ve been hard at work on a brand new update to Quotebook. Today we’re announcing that the third major version of Quotebook is coming soon to an iPhone or iPad near you.

What’s New

Quotebook 3 is an all new version of Quotebook. Quotebook lets you build a personal library of quotes and organize and share those quotes with your friends on social networks. And now, we’ve rewritten every single line of code, we’ve redesigned every single screen for iOS 7, and we’ve added dozens of the features you’ve been requesting.

It’s the most ambitious update we’ve ever done and it’s almost ready.

Timeline

Quotebook 3 for iPhone is currently in private alpha. After we’re comfortable with our final design on iPhone, we’ll finalize our iPad design and begin a private beta with a few more users.

After that, it’s a month or so of testing until we submit to the App Store. We can’t give you a firm date just yet, but Quotebook 3 is our top priority, and we know you’re eagerly awaiting the update as much as we are.

You can sign up to be notified when Quotebook 3 is released at our website or follow us on Twitter.

Until Then…

Quotebook 3 will be a free update for all existing Quotebook users and it’ll download to your devices automatically if you already have Quotebook installed. All your quotes will still be there, and they’ll look even better.

In the meantime, we’ve pulled Quotebook 2 from the store because it was starting to feel outdated on iOS 7. We didn’t want any new customers downloading it and being disappointed. Quotebook will return to the store as soon as 3.0 is released.

If you need support for Quotebook 2, we’re always happy to help at support@quotebookapp.com.


Thanks for your continued support and patience. Quotebook is a big app and it’s taken us longer than we expected to rewrite, but it’ll be worth the wait. Time to get back to work on finishing the best release of Quotebook yet.

“People who use Velocity, a $2.99 iPhone and iPad app that launched in September tend to go with its default speed of 300 words a minute, says the app’s co-creator Matthew Bischoff. But 400 and 500 words a minute are also popular presets.”

Can our app really turbocharge your reading speed?

Been building up your Pocket and Instapaper queues faster than you can read? Velocity can help you power through them by turning you into a speed reader.

Great little review of Velocity over at PureWow:


  Learn to macramé. Watch Dexter. Bake your own cronuts. There are so many things you’d love to do, if only you had a little more time.
  
  Here to help is Velocity ($3), a new iOS 7 app that teaches you to speed-read and hence waste less time sloughing through that 15-page New Yorker piece.

Velocity 1.1 Released

We’re thrilled to announce the release of Velocity 1.1. This is our first feature release since Velocity 1.0 a few months ago, and it includes our most requested feature: Readability. You can now speed read your Readability reading list right from Velocity.

But we didn’t stop there. Since adding another source started to lengthen the list, we’ve also given you the ability to reorder and hide sources just like you can hide Mailboxes in Mail. Just tap the “Edit” button on the Sources screen and hide the Sources that you don’t need and reorder them however you want.

Download Velocity 1.1 on the App Store, or wait for your device to automatically update.

Anonymous asked:

It would be awesome if reeder 2 would intergrate velocity directly instead of copying the url or using pocket!

Agreed, we’re all huge fans of Reeder here at Lickability. We’d recommend suggesting this feature directly to Silvio who makes Reeder, by emailing support@reeder.ch and pointing him to our URL scheme blog post.

Velocity URL Scheme

Our new speed reading app, Velocity, has a couple of awesome features for advanced users that we’ll highlight over the coming days. One of them is the app’s URL scheme. A URL scheme is a way to launch and perform actions in an app simply by typing in a URL or clicking a link in a browser. It’s also how apps on your device communicate with one another. If you’re interested in playing with it, you can already use the URL scheme from Launch Center Pro.

If you’re a developer, we’d love it if you added “Read in Velocity” support in your app, and we’d be happy to help make that easier. Email us at hello@velocityapp.com if you have any questions, comments, or complaints. And feel free to let us know if you would like us to add more features to the URL scheme.

Here’s how the URL scheme for Velocity works:

General

Reading

These URLs will immediately read the text or the content of the URL provided.

Saving

These URLs will save the text or the content of the URL provided for later reading. They will be saved into the user’s local source (e.g. iPhone).

Editing

These URLs will save the text or the content of the URL provided for later reading and then allow the user to immediately edit the text. They will be saved into the user’s local source (e.g. iPhone).

If you’re a developer, we look forward to seeing some of the awesome stuff you make with our URL scheme. If not, is there an app you’d like to see Velocity support?
