Following the release of the official Reddit iOS app last week, Apple today has pulled a handful of third-party Reddit clients from the App Store. While the change appears to be unrelated to the launch of the official Reddit client, it’s a surprise nonetheless. As for its reasoning for removing the apps, Apple says they violate clause 18.2 of the App Review Guidelines, which relates to NSFW content…

Pinterest announces IFTTT & Polyvore apps as first developer platform integrations

After introducing a new developers platform and SDK in May, Pinterest is today announcing a couple of the first integrations developers have come up with starting with popular automation platform IFTTT and community based shopping/fashion site Polyvore.

For IFTTT, the service that lets users automate common web and app-based tasks based on a set of rules known as “recipes”, users will now be able to link products and devices on Pinterest to their automated workflows. The company shared some examples: automatically save Pins to a board from simple actions in other apps such as liking a photo on Instagram, upvoting a post on Reddit or favoriting an item on Etsy. There are more than 20 Recipes to choose from starting today. The Pinterest integration for IFTTT is available through desktop and the service’s mobile apps.

For Polyvore, users can login to the site using their Pinterest account to quickly and easily get access to pinning items from the fashion community/shopping site to Pinterest boards via the company’s iOS app.

In addition, Pinterest noted that new SDKs and documentation for developers are available to all through the company’s new developers site. The new SDKs give devs access to the Pin It button and JS and OAuth support.

Redditors and Twitter users report problems with Apple Watch on (some) tattooed wrists

If you have tattooed wrists and are thinking about ordering an Apple Watch, you may want to try one first. A Reddit thread is reporting that the watch can fail to read heartbeats, or even fail to detect skin contact at all, on some people with heavily-tattooed wrists. This has been backed-up by some Twitter users.

The issue isn’t affecting everyone with tattoos, and reports seem to suggest that solid areas of darker inks – like red and black – and most likely to be affected. The issue is specific to tattoo inks: skin color has no impact.

If the watch fails to detect your skin, you can turn off wrist detection in the companion app, but the watch will then no longer support Apple Pay. The person who started the Reddit thread also reported that notifications no longer arrived without skin contact detection, something I’ll be testing this evening when wearing it outside a cycling jacket.

Can only be a matter of time before someone tries to blow this up into #tattoogate …
