WordPress 5.0

Version 5.0 of WordPress (I use it to create this blog) has been released along with a new theme, cunningly named Twenty Nineteen. I thought, let’s live on the bleeding edge shall we, so now we are!

Shiny new website

Thanks to my lovely and talented partner I now have a revamped and redecorated web site. I’ve had the previous design for about 5 years I think so it’s great to give it a facelift. It is a flexible layout that adjusts gracefully from the screen of an iPod touch to a Macintosh. It also […]

A new podcast for all you Identicode fans

If you’ve downloaded Identicode already, or are thinking of buying it (go ahead, I’ll wait 😀), then you’re probably a Gerry Anderson fan, as am I. After all, it was my love of the TV Century 21 comic back in the 1960s that inspired me to write the app when I got hold of some old […]

Yes – I’m still here!

I know I’ve not posted for a while with any news but with nothing to report there were no posts! However, things are happening now – quite a few things in fact. Firstly, I’m working through each of my iOS apps to ensure that they play nicely with iPhone X. So far, Bargain is ready […]

Web site enhancements

Just a note that I’ve been aware for a while that my site was not Retina display savvy, but now I’ve switched my trusty Mid-2011 iMac to a Retina MacBook Pro I’m very aware! There should be changes on the way to spruce things up – when it’s done you’ll notice I’m sure.   😉

Compatibility with iOS 11

I know, I know, we’re all still on iOS 10 (even us developers), but it’s very likely that Apple will drop support for 32-bit apps in the next release of iOS. I’m happy to say that all my apps have been 64-bit ready since around 2014 so rest assured that all your Black Tablet apps […]

Further iOS 10 updates

I’m currently updating and enhancing Identicode and will be working through Dicewords and Pink Plaques too to ensure full compatibility with iOS 10. Watch this space for further updates.

50 years of Thunderbirds and more

Who would have believed it!? Thunderbirds, one of my favourite TV programmes ever from my childhood (and I still love it today) is having another three episodes made – with puppets, the same voices, in the same building as the original series, and clearly with the same love and care. Wonderful – and I can’t […]

Preparing for iOS 9

I’m checking that all my apps will work fine with iOS 9 which is expected to be released in September. All apps have had small tweaks, a few enhancements and even a new feature or two! Mostly though I’m happy to say that everything pretty much carried on fine without the need to do anything […]

Apps are looking good for iOS9

I’m now running iOS 9 and all my apps are looking good except for Identicode which looks as though it was designed for a 3.5″ screen! It will be sorted before iOS 9 is released, have no fear. I will be incorporating a few of Apple’s new features into some of the apps where it […]
