Indiana Joan Jones is the female lady heroine that women need

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

The next time Indiana Jones appears in film could mark a major change for the franchise. In an interview with The Sun, filmmaker Steven Spielberg told the publication that it may be time for the roguish, Nazi-punching archaeology professor to take “a different form.” Graciously, Spielberg means a woman, not a snakeperson. According to Spielberg, however, this would mean changing more than the gender of the character. “We’d have to change the name from Jones to Joan. And there would be nothing wrong with that.”

Spielberg’s assertion that there’s nothing wrong with this name change is not 100 percent correct, because this is not actually how last names work. Does Indiana Jones become Indiana Joan, wherein the reboot is set in a dystopian…

Firewatch for Nintendo Switch: Everything you need to know

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Campo Santo’s Firewatch is coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime this spring. Here’s what you need to know!

The critically-acclaimed story-based adventure game Firewatch is headed to the Nintendo Switch! Originally released in February of 2016 for PC, Mac, Linux, and PlayStation 4, Firewatch is the latest announced indie game getting set to debut on the Switch.

Whether you’ve already played the game or have never heard of Firewatch before, here’s everything you need to know about the Nintendo Switch version.

What is Firewatch

Firewatch is a story-based adventure game that has been praised for its superb story-telling, realistic characters, and gorgeous game design since it was first released in 2016.

Firewatch, at its core, is a mystery game set in the Wyoming wilderness. You play as Henry, a man who decided to give the simpler life a try by joining a fire lookout team. Set in 1989, you watch for smoke during an especially hot, dry summer, aided via radio by your supervisor, Delilah. However, something draws you out of your tower and into the woods, where you must explore the unknown wild, making choices that could make or break your relationship with Delilah. What starts as a simple game of watching for forest fires becomes a strange, twisty-turny, mystery-filled rabbit hole with new discoveries at every turn. It’s like a book you just can’t put down.

If you’re looking for more than just a game — an experience — then Firewatch should be at the top of your to-play list. The iMore writers (including me) love it so much, it even made our best games for Mac list.

When will Firewatch be released for the Nintendo Switch?

No exact release date has been announced just yet, but Campo Santo’s blog post did suggest they are working on hard at porting the game over.

“When will it be out? All we can say is “soon!” Reengineering the sprawling meadows and towering trees of Firewatch’s wilderness to play perfectly on new hardware is no small engineering task. We’ve been hard at work stripping much of Firewatch’s tech down to the studs and rebuilding it to render the world more quickly, to stream and load faster, and to generally be more responsive. Nearly everyone in the Campo Santo office has a Nintendo Switch (and the rest want one). We know what a good Switch game feels like, and want to make sure Firewatch feels like one too.”

It’s nice to know that developers love Nintendo’s newest console as much as everyone else, and are planning on making the experience of Firewatch just as memorable on the Switch as it was on other platforms

What’s different in the Nintendo Switch version of Firewatch?

While plenty of games have been ported to the Switch with no changes at all, lots of other games have been changed to include fun extras for the Nintendo Switch version.

As of right now, nothing official has been announced, but Campo Santo did leave us with a tantalizing tease of info in the blog post

“We’re hoping to throw in a couple surprises just for the Switch release.”

No idea what those surprises could be, but I’m super excited to find out!

Stay tuned

ClassKit: Everything you need to know

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Apple has announced ClassKit, a framework for educational apps that helps teachers track student progress, assign activities, and personalize their teaching instruction.

ClassKit — like SiriKit, HomeKit, and HealthKit — is a framework that developers can use to add new education-based features to their apps. Adopting ClassKit lets developers create apps that work with Schoolwork, giving teachers the tools they need to assign activities and students the tools they need to report their progress.

Here’s everything you need to know about ClassKit.

April 2, 2018 – Apple releases ClassKit documentation for registered developers.

Registered Apple developers looking to use ClassKit for their educational apps can check out the documentation regarding Apple’s new framework. The company has now published the developer documentation, providing an overview and several topics regarding ClassKit.

You can learn how to incorporate ClassKit, test your ClassKit-enabled app, use the framework’s various classes, and learn how to handle errors.

ClassKit is currently in beta as part of iOS 11.4.

Back up a second — what exactly is ClassKit?

To understand ClassKit, you need to know about Schoolwork, Apple’s new app for education. Schoolwork gives teachers a tool to distribute and collect assignments, track student progress, and collaborate with students. The app gives students a place to turn in assignments, track their own progress, and collaborate with their teachers. ClassKit is a framework that lets developers create apps that work with Schoolwork.

Neat, so what can developers do with ClassKit?

Developers will be able to guide students and teachers through their educational apps by defining and displaying assignable content.

Here’s how that would play out:

  • a teacher assigns an activity from a developer’s app
  • the student sees the assignment in their own Schoolwork app
  • the student taps on the assignment and is taken directly to the activity within the developer’s app

Apps will also be able to track and report student progress. As a student completes an activity, the app may report time spent on the activity, percentage of completion of the activity, scores, etc.

That’s pretty cool! What does that mean for privacy, though?

Apple has baked in privacy protections for Schoolwork and ClassKit. Here’s what the company says regarding student privacy:

Schoolwork only receives and displays student progress data for activities a teacher explicitly assigns, and only when students use the Managed Apple ID that was created for them by their school on their device. If your app already uses a student account to enable certain features, ClassKit does not associate that account with the Managed Apple ID that the student uses.

Got it. So when can developers start using ClassKit?

Soon. Apple says developers will be able to build apps that work with Schoolwork (i.e. adopt the ClassKit framework) with the Xcode 9.4 beta and iOS 11.4 beta. It doesn’t stop there, though. You’ll also need access to Apple School Manager and a beta version of Schoolwork for testing. If you create apps for schools, Apple has a contact form set up where developers can express interest in ClassKit. The company says it will notify developers when resources are available for testing.

Does that mean it could be awhile before we see apps that work with Schoolwork?

Nope! There are already several apps that are using ClassKit. Teachers can assign activities from these apps using Schoolwork and track student progress.

Thoughts? Questions?

Anything else you’d like to know about ClassKit? Be sure to leave your questions in the comments and we’ll do our best to get it answered for you!
