Bookwise: An elegantly designed one-stop book management app

Reading has become a ‘rare’ hobby with the prevalence of short videos. Interestingly, technological advances can hardly help us read better, and the readers themselves are the ones who are in charge of reading. However, when the number of books is large, book management software can help us organize and manage them, forming a set of our own library and making it easier to retrieve them. bookwise is a book management app for iOS, not very feature-rich, but the design is very online, so if you just want an app with pure functionality, you might as well give bookwise a try. Once you open Bookwise, the first tab My Library is the main library where we can add and manage books. According to my own test, Bookwise supports searching most of Chinese and foreign books, but the support for new books is not yet in place, I searched for some of the books in Douban’s New Book Express, and some of them can’t be searched for, for which you can manually add your own books. For each book, you can add tags such as “reading”, “to be read”, “completed”, etc. Once tagged, the books will be categorized into the appropriate tags. You can also share your entire library or to-read list. Bookwise generates an image of your library, which you can download to a photo album or share directly from the share menu.

After clicking on any book, we can see the basic information of the book and record the reading progress. In addition, we can also add notes to the book, and then add a cover to share the notes, Bookwise has built-in a variety of good-looking covers to choose from. In the second tab, we can see some reading status, including the number of consecutive reading days, the number of completed books, and some achievement badges. In the third tab, we can see some book lists created by Bookwise. Clicking on a book list, you can see the introduction of each book and add it to your own library very easily. Bookwise is free to download from the App Store, and a paid subscription unlocks unlimited notes, celebrity book lists, iCloud syncing, and more for $9.99 per month or $24.99 per year.

Arc Browser: released for Windows

Although it uses the same Chromium browser core as Chrome, Arc Browser was a revelation to many: instead of being cluttered with tabs that don’t show you any information, it’s a much more elegant way of organizing your “workspaces” so that you can use the browser in a more relaxed manner.

This elegance also made a big splash when it was released: a convenient command bar for navigation, vertical tabs, and a collapsible sidebar all went some way to making the web browser more efficient, except that it was initially only supported on macOS because it was based on Apple’s ecolanguage, Swift. Towards the end of 2023, the developer finally released an internal beta version of Arc Browser on Windows, with the official version launching on April 30, 2024, and no longer requiring an invitation link to log in.

The first Arc for Windows has some limitations, it’s still based on the Chromium browser, but the first version only supports Windows 11 (Windows 10 still has 70% of the market share) and only supports X86-64 architecture, not ARM64, but the developer says that all these things are already in development and will be released soon. However, the developers say that these are already in development and will be released soon.

Back to the functionality, after logging in or registering for an account, you’ll be taken directly to the browser. The overall layout of the Windows version isn’t too different from the macOS version, and if you’ve ever touched the Arc Browser on macOS, you’ll see that it inherits almost 80% of its functionality in the Windows version.

However, due to the limitations of the platform itself, I couldn’t log in directly to the browser in the domestic network environment when I tried it out, and some of the features available on macOS, such as customizing web pages and modifying colors, AI functions, etc., haven’t been ported to Windows; on the other hand, there are some features not available in the macOS version of Windows, such as changing the background of the window into On the other hand, there are some features that aren’t available on macOS, such as the ability to change the window background to Mica to match the browser background to the desktop, and of course, the ability to switch to Acrylic for a transparent glass effect.

Overall, after experiencing the first release of Arc for Windows, I can still feel the same excitement that I felt when I experienced Arc on macOS, and it’s clear that the best of Arc is still evident in the way it utilizes the desktop screen space to better present web pages and improve the efficiency of web apps. I believe that Arc for Windows will be even better in the coming iterations, and will become an out-of-the-box “browser assassin”.

Ketchup: A new tool for Pokémon players

The recent Delta emulator fire has brought back many people’s fond memories of playing Pokémon on retro consoles. Pokémon, as a game with the basic elements of collection and development, naturally has various elements in it that you need to explore. From the selection of Pokeballs, to the exploration of maps, to the materials for Pokémon’s evolution, there is an elaborate system tree for each element. If you’re a beginner (like me, I’m still stuck in Super Sun and Moon on the 3DS because I’m so lost), how do you begin to understand these complex inner elements? Ketchup is a Pokémon support app (currently only available in English) that allows first-time players to find out what an item does as soon as they get their hands on it, and it’s divided into four main categories: Pokémon artwork, move lists, items, and abilities.

The App is divided into four categories, which are Pokémon Artwork, Moves, Items, and Abilities. The Artwork is easy to understand, which is a complete list of Pokémon, and you can find all the Pokémon you can collect in the Artwork; the Moves List (called moves within the app) is easy to understand, which is information about all the Pokémon’s moves, including the description of the move, whether it’s for a single enemy or a group, the effect, the damage, the pp points, the speed, and the precision; and the Abilities belongs to the Pokémon to which the move belongs, which is a lot of skills that are compounded by Pokémon. Skills can be learned by plural Pokémon, so it’s convenient for Pokémon players who are looking for Pokémon that can use specific skills in order to conquer certain dojos; Items contains all the items in the Pokémon world, with detailed descriptions of what they do, how they work, how they are categorized, and how much they cost.

In addition to the main features mentioned above, the app also allows you to view the attribute restraints between Pokémon and collect your favorite Pokémon. The most interesting feature is “Guess Who”. The most interesting feature is “Guess Who I Am”. Players can enjoy the game of guessing Pokémon by looking at the silhouettes in the app, which brings back the animation of their childhood. Currently, the app also offers a subscription called Ketchup+, which is divided into silver and gold, and is used to unlock the entire iconography, and gold has some extra entries compared to silver, so you can download and experience it in the App Store.

iMazing 3.0: UI overhaul

iMazing, a well-known device management tool, has recently launched its 3.0 version, with a drastically updated interface design and a drastic change in the operation logic. If you only manage your own “three-quarter of an acre of land” in the 2.0 era, then iMazing 3.0 can take you to “open up the territory”, and manage the Apple devices of a family, a team, or even a whole company.

The first screen of iMazing 3 has changed significantly, from the original three-part screen design of “device-operation-status” to a two-part screen with a left sidebar, and defaults to the brand new “Discovery” page, where you can find the functions of transferring files, backing up, and exporting data that used to be operated on individual devices, and adopts a different operation logic from that of the old version, i.e., selecting the function first, and then selecting the device that needs to be operated. The “Discover” page is a different operation logic from the old version, i.e. first select the function, then select the device to be operated.

At the same time, the bound devices are no longer limited to the left column, the new version adds a “Device” page for management, which supports switching between grid and list views, and can be multi-selected. In addition, the left sidebar also opens up a separate area for Apple Configurator, which was originally hidden in the menu bar, making it easier to realize batch configuration, batch management and other functions.

Whether it’s front-loading or device multi-selection, the changes are all centered around the framework of Batch Processing. Batch processing was already in place in later versions of 2.0, where you could use the Configurator item in the menu bar to perform basic operations such as batch backups, updates, reboots, shutdowns, and so on. In the new version, these functions have gained a more intuitive interaction logic and have been delegated to free users, so you can realize batch operations more conveniently on the discovery page and device page.

With the Configurator tool in the left column, you can also preset unified organization information for a large number of devices, configure unified language and wallpaper, enable single-application mode, co-ordinate application restrictions, install description files, etc. If you’re a company’s device manager, iMazing 3 can help you dramatically improve management efficiency.

For more efficient device management, new device support is a must. 3.0 adapts the Apple Vision Pro and enables remote pairing between the Apple Vision Pro and Apple TV, just make sure that the management terminal is on the same Wi-Fi as the device, and go to the Remote Devices section in the system settings to complete the pairing. All you have to do is make sure the console is on the same Wi-Fi as the device and go to Remote Devices in System Settings.

The UI update also involves a number of data presentation optimizations. For example, the single device preview page can now show more rich device information; the storage space has added a ring graph display in addition to the original progress bar display and data list, and the iCloud temporary storage data has been displayed more clearly; the battery status has been changed from a pop-up window in the previous version to a standalone page, so that the device data can be seen at a glance. In addition, the operation history has been changed from a separate pop-up window to a pop-up sidebar in the main screen of the app, and the operation progress bar will be displayed at the same time with other history, so there will be no more problems of not being able to find the progress bar after turning it off by mistake.

From a comprehensive point of view, the newly launched version 3.0 has a more refined UI, optimized the way of displaying some data, and adjusted the operation logic, while the functions themselves are only slightly improved compared with 2.0. The fixed layout of the functions on the new “Discover” page makes the interaction less friendly. If the subsequent version can increase the operation customization of the home page and realize richer batch processing functions with the help of workflow, the advantages of 3.0 may be more prominent.
