Dear Aperture, An App That I Love:
When my WiFi is misbehaving, you keep interrupting my work in other apps to report that you’re having trouble connecting to MobileMe. I have never so much as implied that I have any interest in MobileMe galleries. Yet you do this several times an hour.
When you get into this sort of fugue, you’re like a waiter who keeps interrupting my meal and my conversation every ten minutes to tell me that if I was thinking about ordering the broccoli custard for dessert, alas, the kitchen has run out.
This waiter will still receive a gratuity. He is doing the wrong thing, but I appreciate it’s coming from his drive to provide excellent service. Still: 15%, tops.
Just FYI. You do know that in a few weeks’ time, there will be no MobileMe to connect to?
[Edited to add: Yes, darlings, I know how to remove MobileMe from Aperture’s radar. I just think it’s odd that the default position of this app is to attempt to maintain a connection to a service that the user hasn’t expressed any interest in, and isn’t using.]
