January 2024 Recap

Hello and welcome to the first issue of the Full Queue Developer newsletter! In this issue, app updates, stream updates, and other updates.

App updates

Underway and Haptics Studio both received updates in January.


We released one updated subway map, published by the MTA and started work on a new tier, between Pro and Ad-free

Haptics Studio

Version 1.1.0 is live on the App Store, peaked at number 5 on the Developer Tools chart! This update adds free iCloud sync. Now your settings for haptics will sync to your other iCloud-enabled devices. This sync is powered by App State, a new open-source Swift Package that simplifies the management of application state in a thread-safe, type-safe, and SwiftUI-friendly way. Learn more on GitHub! https://github.com/0xLeif/AppState

Stream updates

We continued our work day streams, 10 am to 4pm. We also had a few bonus streams, focused around the following collabs:


We explored AppState on stream, and got iCloud sync working in Haptics Studio in less than 2 hours! A huge thanks to Twitch sub BruceLeif who sponsored this stream to gather feedback for AppState and spread the word on the new framework. Get in touch if you would like to sponsor some content, and of course check out App State! It literally left me speechless. https://youtu.be/l0gd_EFpqgA

Swift Developer Podcast

We appeared on the Swift Developer Podcast! Here is the live recording with Twitch chat going wild https://youtu.be/TxQ2-2tZpHY and of course Peter’s edited version https://share.transistor.fm/s/56ebce29

Work-with-me streams

These workday streams have been so fun! It’s so good seeing you all everyday! January saw the addition of 3 new videos to the lineup: Central Park walking in the snow through Seneca Village, West Harlem Piers on a very very windy day, and walking down the Hudson. Over the end-of-year break I also went back and color corrected many of the videos.

Other updates

A few other things I would like to tell you about that don’t exactly fit into the other categories.

Living the Creative Act update

We started Season 5 strong, with pre-edited videos! A few segments stitched together for about 20 minutes of discussion on the chapter of the day. I’m so proud of the work I did, and I amazed my self at what I could do. With this approach, I was able to go further emotionally with the piece, knowing that if I go too far, I don’t have to publish it. All-in-all, it was too much effort, compared to my other responsibilities. And Living the Creative Act has returned to its original form: casually reading the chapter and responding to it live on stream. The Living the Creative Act segments are still published to Apple Podcasts https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/living-the-creative-act/id1710679124

2023 Recap

2023 Recap. 2023 was a huge year for me personally and for my projects. I made a video looking back on it! https://youtu.be/lLmR2xsx_vY
