IMAP is probably the only qualm I have about it so far. I understand it doesn't make sense for the HEY client, but it'd be nice to manage my email from other clients. And that's not going to happen. twitter.com/dhh/status/1272599

It is definitely a solid v1. I stopped using my previous email clients (Thunderbird & K-9 Mail) and I am not missing them. Still, there is a couple of features I am missing. They are coming.

HEY also shipped with a Linux client from day one, and that's what I've been using. There is a client for each platform. hey.com/apps

Keyboard shortcuts are awesome. I'm surprised they don't mention it in the features tour, maybe it's only appealing to geeks like me. But you can do almost everything with keyboard shortcuts that are easy to use and memorable.

Something I see differently now is the destination assigned to senders (Imbox, Feed & Paper Trail). Maybe you want something in the Paper Trail but still want to know when it arrives. You can assign it to the Imbox and move it after reading. Which is easy with keyboard shortcuts.

When I started using it, it was a bit uncomfortable. No notifications by default? I won't see all emails in my "Inbox"?, etc. But after the first couple of days, I realized the discomfort came from FOMO and bad habits. It's great now. JOMO, Joy Of Missing Out.

If you don't know anything about HEY, you should check out the features tour. It is a great overview that highlights many of their unique features. hey.com/features/the-screener

I have been using HEY for a week now, here's a thread with my first impressions πŸ‘‡

Ok I just gave the code to johnmsteen@twitter.com! Patience for the rest, if you signed up yours should be arriving soon :). If it's any consolation, I didn't get noel@hey.com and I don't think my name is that common. So I wouldn't worry about getting your first name either.

I've got a hey.com invite code to give away, anyone who I know wants it? Free, of course, no payment shenanigans :D

that in most SQL engines the condition `category != 'movies'` will not return rows where the category is NULL, you should do `category != 'movies' OR category IS NULL` instead.

The other day I was saying it'd be nice to have an app that mimics the way that conversations happen in conferences/meetups. Today I found one that's very close to what I had in mind! remo.co

That CSS pixels are not equivalent to device pixels in high resolution screens. So <img width="300" height="300"> can actually be rendered as 600x600px in some devices.

The best podcast app I've used and this happens :( Of course, it'd be easy for me to say "upload it to a different appstore". But is that even a real choice for a business owner? I really hope that the future is decentralized. More technology like RSS and email please.
