AcceleReader for Pocket - for the taggers, the graph lovers, and the beta testers

It’s been a good few days of updating all my Chrome projects with various upgrades, and bug fixes. Here’s a quick review of the updates to AcceleReader – one of the newest in my collection.

Changing 'Run Chrome in background' option in one Chrome profile toggles setting for all browser profiles.

Other than being a bug, may also be a privacy issue - shows extensions (with background permission) installed for other profiles.

Is there anyone specific I can tag on this bug?

All splash screens suck. Especially this one.

Don't follow Google's example in any of your apps. These screens don't make any sense no matter how "well" they're implemented. Just make your UI load fast and then load content into it. 

Splash screens are an idiotic idea especially on Android where apps are never really killed by users (or should not be). The app runs in the background until the OS decides it's not needed anymore. This should all be transparent to users but introducing a splash screen makes the app launch differently different times. Sometimes the app just appears and sometimes user is forced to stare at the splash.

Don't do what Google does!

Wrote a post on UX minefield that I found Facebook's Android app to be. Would love to hear the community's views.
I write about some couple of UX/UI issues that hit me right away, after I returned to Facebook after 8 years. From crowded, hard-to-reach touch targets, and well-hidden settings, to non-functional...

Reading +Benedict Evans' post[^1] reminded me of my long held view on TVs (which I, sadly, never expanded): http://c306.net/converge/2013/my-view-on-smart-tvs/

Story
Tagline
Living & riding in the middle ring. Also running, hiking & swimming. Interested in Tech-Media-Telecom, and consumer marketing.
Introduction
Sleep, eat, read, think, spout, cycle. Recycle.

Was dragged to a vacation in Africa, so capped it off by scaling Mt. Kilimanjaro. And fell in love with the continent.
Was hurt badly by cobbles in Flanders on vacation, so went back to ride as many as Tour of Flanders could throw at me. And fell in love with the region.

  • Intermittent, aspiring, failing entrepreneur.
  • Hesistant, hopefully ex-, half-decent management consultant.
  • Analytical, non-breaking, infrequent tech-media-telecom blogger.
  • Curious about consumer behaviour and consumer marketing.
  • Overweight cyclist, recent runner, in-love-with-mountains hiker, and training-to-be triathlete.
  • Thrive in chaos. Get bored bit too easily.
  • Patient Optimist.

One Life. Living It.
Bragging rights
Saw Africa from it's highest point, rode the cobbled climbs of Ronde van Vlaanderen.

Keeping my head about when others are losing theirs.

Great (and only) local burrito joint. Grub is quite good, but not great. Service can vary from OK to excellent depending on who's behind the bar. I'm just glad to finally have a (soon 3) decent Burrito place on Guildford.

Our first experience in self catering cottages, almost in middle of nowhere, and couldn't have chosen a better place. Beautiful, peaceful location, always helpful hosts, perky pine martens, private access to the Loch, and plenty of hikes close by. Loved it!

Best place for authentic South India sea food in this part of Surrey. Add in the smiling staff, and the 20 min drive there is something I actually look forward to!
