I have been working for years.

I think it might come out right this winter
It is the subtle things that let you know it is a school holiday.
TikTok did not say whether the feature would be removed from Android devices, nor whether clipboard data was ever stored or moved from user devices
Given that the app is widely used by pupils and sometimes by educators this is interesting.

after reading about privacy. The post is fascinating and a useful reminder. On the Jetpack front I’ve got Jetpack installed but the “Publicize connections” & “Sharing buttons” turned off. I don’t see any traffic going to Facebook using two of the tool’s that Doug suggests. Perhaps Jetpack is OK? Or I don’t really know how to use the tools.
In normal times I listen to podcasts. As I do this on a commute I’ve only listened to 2 episodes since schools shut. I miss it.
When listening I often want to remember something for later, perhaps for a blog post or like, usually this ends in frustration as my memory fails. I imagined a podcast player that had voice control and would let you make voice notes. Today this imagining came true.
Castro, the podcast app I use, had an update. This includes a pile of very welcome Siri integration which will help with hands free problems.
Even better the addition of shortcuts and one of the examples gathers info about the current playing episode and allows you speak a note. This is collated with data about the episode, podcast name, Castro url, show notes, position and saved into a New note.
I managed to edit the shortcut to get the information into Drafts instead. I’ve tested it a few times and I am now good to go when commuting starts again on 11 August.
