The public beta of iOS 9 has been out for a while (in fact the second version was just released recently) and I have been trying it out on my first generation iPad Air. I think that the new features are well covered by tech blogs and other news sites, so in this post I am going to share with you what I like and dislike about the new iOS so far.
A few disclaimers first before I begin:
- iOS 9 is still in beta (though I must say it has been rather stable so far!) and things might change in future releases!
- I am running the beta on a first generation iPad Air. Some features may or may not be available for your device.
- I believe that not all features are/will be available in Singapore.
So with that out of the way, let’s begin! Continue reading iOS 9 – What I Like and Dislike so far
I really love this version of Just My Soul Responding

I decided it was high time to refresh the look on this website as I thought the previous theme looks dated (also, I was having great difficulty figuring out how to integrate my Instagram feed elegantly on the previous theme).
The current theme is WordPress’s Twenty Fifteen theme (the default theme for new WordPress installations now). I like how the theme places emphasis on my content and its fluidity across different screen sizes. However, I was not perfectly happy with the default font choices – I opted for Open Sans for text and Bree Serif for headings instead.
I also cleaned up the formatting of some of my older posts so that they would look nice on the new theme. It was interesting to look back at some of the stuff that I wrote (and the photos that I posted) and realize how much I have grown over the past few years.
Beneath the hood, I have also made adjustments to (hopefully) speed up the loading times.
I hope you like the new site!
