This is the podcast I have been waiting for....
John and Federico are great together and finally there is a podcast that focused exclusively on Apps and how they impact our lives. This is not just do an overlay, but a true deep dive on what went into the Apps you love. The backstories are amazing and the guys have a real interesting point of view.
Also - these guys are with MacStories, so you know they are legit.
Love the work these two put out, and look forward to hearing more.
Short and Sweet
App Stories is focused and highly informative. Although I don't want to end up with as many apps as John has, I will definitely download and try two that were mentioned in Episode 2. Looking forward to learning more and gaining appreciation for new and established apps.
