Mossberg: Apple’s apps need work

theverge.com — In the last couple of years, I've noticed a gradual degradation in the quality and reliability of Apple's core apps, on both the mobile iOS operating system and its Mac OS X platform. It's almost as if the tech giant has taken its eye off the ball when it comes to these core software products, while it pursues big new dreams, like smartwatches and cars.

Mossberg: Twitter has become secret-handshake software

theverge.com — Twitter's fundamental problem is this: it's too hard to use. To potential new users, it's a real challenge to learn all of Twitter's often arcane little features. And even for people who have been using the service multiple times daily for years, like me, it can be tricky to decide when to use which feature and in which situation.
