Xcode 9.3 Simulator Freezes

For a few days I had an issue where every so often the iOS simulator would freeze when booting up. It would just display an activity indicator. Then I saw this Tweet and now all is fixed!

xcrun simctl erase all

The iOS Simulator Scroller


Just over a week ago I decided to play around with Accessibility on macOS. I've always wanted the iOS Simulator to scroll when I scrolled with my mouse so figured this would be a good project to get started on.

Later on that day I had this:

Playing around with the accessibility framework. Put together an app that lets me use my mouse scroll in the iOS simulator 🎉

A few people asked for me to release it and I figured why not? Would also give me a chance to try out Paddle which we have been thinking of using for Quids.
