I’ve decided to opt-out the Micro.blog apps from the Apple Vision Pro store. My boring CEO take: it’s not something we have time to test and support with a small team. More rant-y take: I don’t believe in the product yet, and worry about us all living in a headset. Touch grass, friends!

@manton There’s going to be so few of them that I can’t see it being worthwhile for most developers to spend much time on it. To get mass adoption, I think it’ll need to drop by two thirds in price and weight.

@vincent I will be shocked if you tested the new app in the Vision Pro simulator. 🙂

@manton Thank heavens! I think there would be requests for a character limit of 4000 chars.

@manton agree with this decision. It is premature to invest in something that has "only" 60,000 users. :)

@vincent I thought you were working on an AI Pin app and the R1 non-app? :)

@manton it’s a product that was built to be the next big thing. Unfortunately for them AI is the next big thing, and now it just seems silly.

@rom Micro.blog has ~7K users. How many of those will get a Vision Pro? 😊

@manton 👍🏻 I don’t think there will be a “gold rush” app store situation on Vision like there was on iPhone. Like the Watch focused into fitness, Maybe Apple’s headset will narrow focus into gaming?

@numericcitizen If the Micro.blog iOS app let me copy a URL, I would share.
