Sofa Updates - May 2023

Hey gang 👋, I’m finishing up some much needed downtime after almost of year straight of grinding out a bunch of big Sofa updates. I also need to rest up because Apple’s WWDC is right around the corner.

Back in December of 2022, I released a huge update that brought shared lists, better shortcuts support, streaming providers for movies and tv shows, and lock screen widgets. You can read all the details here.

I followed that big release up with a string of smaller, quality-of-life updates. These updates focused on plenty of little features, enhancements, and bug fixes. You can read all the details here.

Lastly, I’ve made some changes to Sofa’s pricing to make things simpler and more inclusive. Read the details.


Other Updates

  • If you’re interested in a little more of Sofa’s backstory I was interviewed on the Launched podcast. Listen here.
  • I’ve created a few YouTube videos lately that show some behind-the-scenes on my process and what I’m working on. Watch videos.

Things I’m Enjoying

Movies

  • Air - Good movie about the story of Nike signing Michael Jordan.
  • The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent - Such an odd movie. I liked it, but I still don’t really know what to think about it lol.

Shows

  • Welcome to Wrexham - As an American, I know nothing about soccer. This was a fun way to follow the story of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney buying the Wrexham team.
  • I Think You Should Leave - If you like weird, dark humor you’re gonna love this sketch comedy show. It’s an instant favorite of mine.
  • Smartless: On the Road - A documentary of the live tour for the Smartless podcast. Loved it.

Playing

  • The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom - Need I say more.
