Updated Identicode and Pink Plaques now available

Apple have now approved the latest version of these two apps for sale. 🙂

Identicode V1.3 now has a share button allowing you to use the standard iOS share sheet to send  your coded or decoded message to fellow agents or otherwise process as you wish – perhaps filing them in your message list in the new iOS Notes app!

Brighton Pink Plaques V2.1 now uses Apple’s new SafariViewController (here is a detailed post about what it’s all about on Federico Viticci’s consistently excellent MacStories web site). This may not be super important in an app like Pink Plaques but it means that you will now have the fastest, most convenient and most secure web browsing I can offer thanks to Apple giving us developers, in effect, a cut-down Safari right in our apps. This feature is only available when running on iOS 9.

I found that the web site URLs associated with a couple of plaques no longer worked so they have been corrected. If you find any that are wrong, please email me and I will issue a correction in the next release.

I remain committed to supporting an enhancing all my apps as long as I reasonably can, though it’s possible that in future the support for older versions of iOS may be dropped.

App updates waiting for Apple to review

Apple now have three of my apps in their queue(s) to review. Due to some unplanned last minute changes to Dicewords and Dicewords-X I have not yet sent those two to Apple but I hope that will happen in the next few days, if not then next week.

Mostly all were running fine anyway but I’ve added a new sharing feature to Identicode, tidied up some screen reset issues in Bargain and enhanced Pink Plaques so that if you are running iOS 9 or later, it will use Apple’s new Safari view within the app to view any web pages which is more secure and convenient for you. Remember, that even if you are not using iOS 9 you can still view the same page in Safari by tapping ‘Safari’ in the top right of the screen.

I’ll post again when I have more news.

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 – I must be doing something right! 🙂

I’ll post again when they’re ready to release.

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 seems right.
