Katie Marsal, AppleInsider:
The update allows developers to use more media in their App Store submissions and provide a more complete and rich user experience upon installation.
So developers can now build a better Myst.
(Downloading over cellular network is still limited to 100 MB, minimizing the chances of accidentally going over the telco's bandwidth limitations.)
Paul Ford, Medium:
The bubbles are a subtle, little, silly thing but they are experienced by millions of people. That amplifies that product decision into a unsubtle, large, sort-of-serious thing. The people who are tweeting negatively about green bubbles are following Apple’s lead. It’s speculative, but not totally speculative to say that Apple may be aware it’s leading this way—after all, Apple has done passive-aggressive product design before, like giving Windows machines on its network a “Blue Screen of Death” icon.
Interesting speculation, but I suspect this doesn't really affect purchase decisions too much. If you are not in the iPhone ecosystem, you don't see the green bubbles. And if your friends don't text you because you are not using an iPhone, then they are not friends anyway.
Federico Viticci, MacStories:
Workflow fits my routine like a glove. I've used it every day to automate aspects of my work that speed up how I write and communicate on my iOS devices. And with Workflow 1.1, released today on the App Store, its developers are further expanding the app's capabilities with powerful new functionality that includes filtering, better conditionals and image manipulation, URL expansion and deeper calendar access, and even the ability to open multiple links at once in a web browser.

Closed my eyes and woke up to a world without David Carr in it. Don't like it one bit.— Arik Hesseldahl (@ahess247) February 13, 2015
