Yoipes! MacOS Versions of iPadOS apps are showing up on the App Store.

The transition in to cross-platform apps [iPadOS to macOS] is happening, right now, on the App Store.

Many of us who have been keeping up with releases and features know that Mac Catalyst is an exciting new feature that was released with Xcode 11, not very long ago.

Now, just this morning, in fact: I started getting releases on the App Store for apps that I had purchased on my former iOS and iPadOS devices.
My MacBook Air is running the latest beta of macOS 11.0 Big Sur, and now iPadOS apps are showing up in the App Store downloads, as prior purchases.

Fans of productivity and pipe organs will rejoice at the macOS presence of apps such as the Strand and Ott Organ Apps by Markus Sigg, as well as LiquidText, for example.

Perhaps these developers had been amongst some of the first to jump in on the Universal App Quick Start Program, recently offered by Apple; or, perhaps, the current Intel-CPU powered devices, with Mac Catalyst, could create the Universal Apps in and of their own capabilities, since Mac Catalyst had been offered with Xcode since version 11 (Xcode 12 is the current transitional | universal app development platform for producing macOS desktop or laptop [in my case, a gold MacBook Air 2020] binaries out of iOS and iPadOS apps - a somewhat different stake in the story on Apple's decisions to move their product lines' CPUs to ARM-powered processors over the next several months and, perhaps, a couple of years, at most).

iPigeon nutrition moment: eating food from the Eternal Ark of Covenant Parish Food Bank: Buffalo steaks au Françaíse-flambeaux (rare) avéc l'huille de cócó,

At the local food bank, here in 90003, on Broadway, Saturday mornings, there is an overabundant plethora of meats available for distribution to the needy. 

I'm clearing out my freezer and fridge, and I'd been putting off trying out the buffalo. (Now my gas stove isn't working); 

I've decided to go French on this meal, while keeping in tradition with some of the historic methods of preparation of this sort of meat:

I've determined I should coconut-oil spray-flambeaux the round-tipped steaks to a rare-to-medium-rare, which is suitable, according to Yankee Farmer's Market's tips for cooking buffalo meat.

 ... along with a modern-day take on how buffalo has been incorporated (popularly) in our diets, (at least, here on the west coast: as chicken is commonly prepared): with sauce flavorings; perhaps a glaze. I decided to go with a honey-mustard curry glaze, to use the cooking materials I have, at the moment.

How hot is a coconut oil spray flambeaux? I'd consult Wikipedia. 

The Google OmniBox Search Bar in Safari.

Turns out that The Globe and Mail blog has the top hit for this investigation in to Smoke point. I'm going to skip researching smoke point and see what it has to do with flambé.

Cooking Tips for Buffalo

Buffalo meat is naturally tender and extremely flavorful. However, the taste and tenderness of the meat is directly related to how the meat is cooked.

The buffalo meat should be cooked slowly at low to medium temperatures. Buffalo meat cooks faster than beef. As there is no fat to act as an insulator to the meat, the meat is cooked directly.

Recommended cooking range is rare to medium and internal temperatures should be 135 degrees - 155 degrees Fahrenheit.


Buffalo steaks come in a wide variety of cuts, all comparable with beef. Most butchers and/or meat producers will cut steaks to customer specifications (1”-1 1/4” are preferred).

Methods of cooking steaks include: grilling (outdoor or on top of stove), pan sautéing, broiling, and stir frying. Do not overcook; readjust thinking as well as the heat source.

Grilling time will vary depending on the temperature of the coals and whether the meat is placed on or off the rack. An instant read thermometer comes in handy for outdoor grilling. Remember to pull the steak off or out of the heat when it is slightly rarer than you like. The steaks will continue to cook when it is out of direct heat.

Steaks do not need additional liquid, sauces or marinades unless desired. Frequent turning of the meat is recommended. 

I decided that my method of preparation would end up as that I'd need to figure out the amount of minutes I'd need to flambeaux the steaks.

Place the steaks on the grill and cook until golden brown and slightly charred, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the steaks over and continue to grill 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare(an internal temperature of 135 degrees F), 5 to 7 minutes for medium (140 degrees F) or 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well (150 degrees F).



now I've determined that this actually is a fish, since it did look like a salmon steak, to begin with.

The bigmouth buffalo (Ictiobus cyprinellus) is a fish native to North America. It is the largest North American species in the Catostomidae or "sucker" family, and is one of the longest-lived freshwater fishes, capable of living beyond 110 years.[2] It is commonly called the gourd headredmouth buffalobuffalofishbernard buffaloroundhead, or brown buffalo,. Despite the superficial similarity, the bigmouth buffalo is not a carp, nor is any other catostomid.

The bigmouth's native distribution is confined to the countries of Canada and the United States of America. In Canada, they inhabit the Milk River which flows through Alberta, and the Qu'Appelle River which flows through Saskatchewan and Manitoba into Lake Winnipeg. Beginning in the northern United States, they are native to Iowa, South Dakota and, Minnesota, more southern states include eastern Texas and Oklahoma. The major drainages where they are found in include Lake Erie, the Ohio River, and Mississippi River drainages. From these drainages, they are found into Arkansas, the Gulf region of Louisiana, and down the Tennessee River into Alabama. The introduction of bigmouth has been largely done for commercial purposes. Regions of reintroductions include some reservoirs along the Missouri River drainage of North Dakota and Montana. Regions of introduction include some reservoirs in Arizona, and within California, they have also been introduced to the aqueduct system of Los Angeles.[7]

Trekking out to Santa Monica on a craigslist hardware barter.

Leaving Los Angeles on the Metro Expo E Live towards Santa Monica,  from off the 550 to Exposition Park from Manchester at Harbor Freeway (110).

I found a great deal while browsing craigslist on the notion that I'd been hitting a wall with my iPad (iPigeonPad) development efforts under my annual term I'd purchased with the Apple Developer Program.  Only $150.

In order to do some essential tasks, render services,  issue certificates; that sort of thing,  for my mock-up conceptual Apple iPadOS,  iOS,  tvOS,  and watchOS, I'd need a dedicated Xcode Apple development machine. I found a great deal on a 2010 21-inch iMac i3 with a 2TB upgraded hard drive,  and 12 GB of RAM. I figure I could get in to some serious repository local serve development aspirations and Android NDK and SDK for my Google and Android developments,  as well. 
The seller, upon working out some details on my own end,  as to how I could find this transaction, was very accommodating of my ostensible needs for this machine (in that I could OK longer return the iPad to Target, and he agreed to take up my offer of an even trade for his iMac, with my iPad).

I decided to jump the gun and settle for a trade,  for a well-equipped and upgraded older device,  in this instance,  for the fact that I figured that people were pushing for Christmas deals, and Christmas devices,  this month, moreso than they might be next month.
