Excellent write up with valid points, just one small rebuttal: https://gist.github.com/eofster/62e571d3dd87664935ed#gistcomment-1661053
I think `guard` is powerful in its way of letting you write the desired condition as opposed to the inverse.
Tile is still a great product for anything; keys, bags, bikes, etc… They don’t really suggest using it to track your phone today. I don’t think this specific implementation would force them to close down at all, merely a feature of Find my iPhone.
I’ve noticed several times in my day to day on an iOS 8 project where it would be oh so useful.
Don’t forget that guard can be used in iOS 8 being that it’s a Swift 2 feature. Once Xcode 7 GM drops (presumably this Wednesday) we should be able to start submitting apps using Swift 2.
So, we didn’t get full blown Siri extensions but CoreSpotlight extensions are pretty awesome and fulfill the ability to search for content in a third party app using only Siri. For a comapny like Infusionsoft (where I work) we could potentially utilize them to allow our users to use Siri to look up a contact in their Infusionsoft database and then call them without ever opening our app, exciting!
