After commenting on one of Oliver Drobnik’s radar reports where I complained about the unfriendliness of Apple’s bug reporting tool, Radar, I stumbled upon an initiative called ‘Fix Radar or GTFO’. If you ever filed a bug to Apple, you’ll perfectly recognise your own painful experience in that text. I encourage you to duplicate the issue in Radar and raise awareness around you to this initiative.
Fix Radar or GTFO

- By making radars so hard and painful to file, most developers end up not filing them.
- Steps to Reproduce:
- Submit an issue.
- Expected Results:
- Filing a new issue is an easy and quick thing to do.
- Actual Results:
- The user interface is awkward and slow. We have to stop what we’re doing and go to a web UI that still thinks we’re running Mac OS X 10.1, that makes it awkward to look at bugs we’ve already filed and generally is un-Apple-like.
