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 […]

Updates are on their way!

I’m putting the final touches to Identicode V1.4. Some of the enhancements are: Those of you who are still on 3.5″ devices will get the link to my web site that the other users have enjoyed! 🙂 It makes full use of the new larger screens on the latest iPhones – sorry this is so overdue. […]

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.

Bargain V2.3 now available

Apple have approved Bargain for sale. 🙂 This has been tested for iOS 10 and boasts a clearer indication of the bargain when you find it by colouring the whole background of the fields rather than just the text! It also disallows a comparison if a quantity is 0 – previously it would display a […]

Great post by Tim Cook about why OS security is crucial

Despite considerable pressure to open up the iPhone to external agencies, Apple have resisted and explained why, Let’s hope that other companies stand up to be counted as well. If this is forced through it would be the start of a very slippery slope. Customer Letter Be aware that in time that link may break […]

Dice words V1.3 now available for sale

Apple have now approved version 1.3 of Dicewords (and Dicewords-X) for sale. 🙂 PLEASE NOTE – Updating to V1.3 will lose any save game or puzzle in progress at the time the update was installed. This happens only once so hopefully it will be a very minor inconvenience. The main change is that the Demo screen has […]

Where else do people expect refunds?

I saw this review today on the App Store: I like point and click games but this is painfully slow and not intuitively designed. The puzzle sections are not at all challenging and even that interesting. The graphics are pleasant but there is not that ‘wow’ factor. I really wish I could get a refund. […]

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 […]

DiceWords is still waiting …

I have sent the latest update of DiceWords to Apple but it seems to be stuck in an odd limbo-land! I will wait a few more days and if nothing changes I will have to make another update, send it to Apple for another try. I’ll keep you posted here and on Twitter (@blacktabletapps).

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 […]
