Episode #: 43
Hosts: Joe Lombardo, Clay Russell, Jerry Goldbaum, Jordan Patterson and Donny Benfield
Site News and Giveaways
For those asking, we took an additional week off to line our show dates up closer to WWDC with a recap show the following week.
We are just 4 weeks away from our WWDC predictions show. We will be having a prediction contest between panel members and listeners. More details to come as we get closer to Apple’s grand event. But there will be a give-a-way that will include a $20 iTunes card as well as iPhone and iPad accessories so stay tuned for that. Special thanks goes out to our co-sponsor Joe Hanna who is largely responsible for making this grand giveaway possible.
We also want to give a shout out to Brian Feldy who is also a current co-sponsor of the iOSDocked podcast.

This Week’s Roundtable/Listener Feedback Question
Flat or functional? What UI changes in the OS do you most want to see in version 7?
