That’s about Hook for iPhone and iPad, as we’re calling it here.
The app has been approved for general release by Apple. But what I didn’t realize is that the TestFlight release requires a separate authorization from Apple. We submitted it for that, and are once again waiting for Apple. I apologize for not getting to it earlier this week (bit of a crazy week, and we did get Hook 3.4 and needed a Hook 3.4.1 …). The good news is that App Store Connect this year is not on holiday: According to Apple Developer itself. They’ll be slower than usual but hopefully not too slow.
I have an 11-inch iPad Pro. “Santa” is getting me a 12.9-inch iPad Pro because I just had to see it on that form factor physically. Also looking forward to drawing on it and reading ebooks on it.
we’ve got quite a long list of people on TestFlight, so we may not be able to add any names during the break due to being shorthanded during the break. But I will be here and some work is still going on apart from xmas day itself.
I got today the invitation for the Test flight version of Hook for iOS (called Hookmark). I had understood that this won’t be a stand-alone app but rather a complimentary one for the Mac app. I see however asking for a monthly or yearly subscription fee to allow icloud syncing, although I am already a Pro user of Hook. What have I missed here?
I know that I might ask a stupid question, but:
I tried a simple thing, copying a link on Mac and creating a new apple note with it.
The link does not open in iPad nor iPhone. Is it my fault or is it not meant to be like this yet?
Anyone can help?
There’s also Using Hook with Apple Notes – Hook. Some of them would require an app we are developing for iPhone and iPad that has not yet been released yet. We’ll release more information on that publicly closer to release date.
Just managed to get a rudimentary form of this working. Getting the link into the Dymo label printing software is a manual step, but I’ve created an iOS shortcut that scans for a QR code with the camera, turns it to text, strips out the ‘URL:’ that is prepended, and then airdrops the text. At that point I can manually select my desktop Mac and it opens (in this case) DevonTHINK and shows the hooked document.
Dear All, we’re waiting for Apple to release next testflight. Meanwhile, we’re closing the TestFlight to new participants for now as we focus on development/ related tasks. We still have a handful of prior requesters to add; if you haven’t heard back by end of Thu (PST) please send us a PM. we will likely open it up again in january prior to public availability.
