Identicode crossword from TVC21

I was reading an old copy of the wonderful TV Century 21 and chanced upon a whole page devoted to Identicode, including a crossword! I’ve included the page below so that you can try it for yourself. Something I’ve considered adding to Identicode is text recognition using Apple’s vision framework, that way that large chunk […]

Identicode V1.7 update

Good things come in threes! This update is purely to make the app much more Dark Mode friendly as Apple urge us developers to do. It’s the right thing too. Dark Mode adoption on my other two apps has been fairly standard, but given the frivolous and retro fun side to Identicode I’ve gone a […]

Bargain – Dark Mode

I’m going a bit update crazy! Version 2.7 of Bargain is now available with support for Dark Mode – no other changes. Sorry for skipping 2.6, that was a mistake on my part!

Pink Plaques V3 released

OK – big surprise time! An update to Pink Plaques. It’s been almost five years since I’ve updated this app and I’m really happy to say that I’ve finally rectified that; it’s had a considerable makeover to keep it running nicely for a good few years to come. The finer details of the changes are […]

Pink Plaques to be removed

I will be removing Brighton Pink Plaques from the App Store today, for reasons that will hopefully become clear very soon! “Stay tuned”, as they say.

Bargain 2.5 released

It’s like waiting for a bus – none for ages then two come along at once! (See previous post). Originally, I wrote Bargain to explicitly throw away any entries in the text fields when closing the app because there were only four and they could quickly be re-entered … well, it was my first app […]

Identicode V1.6 released

Hello everyone – an update to Identicode with a few small tweaks is now available. These changes include the removal of the name and link on the main screen as they’ve now been moved to a new Help menu, a small punctuation fix and a minimum requirement of iOS 12.

Dicewords removal

Regrettably, I will be removing Dicewords and Dicewords-X from the App Store later today. A lot has changed since the day I wrote them in terms of device screen sizes, even for iPads, and iOS internals. Due to the way they were written they weren’t expecting all those different sizes and Apple now require all […]

New app released!

Hello everyone, I’ve just had my first ever macOS app approved and it’s now available on the Mac App Store. It’s a writing tool and it’s called 1000 Words. Free-writing is a technique to help getting you writing instead of thinking about writing by just sitting down and typing anything that comes into your head […]

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!
