1000 Words updates

I’ve made a couple of enhancements to this handy app: It now updates the word count if you delete a word whereas previously only adding a word would update it. The Help file has been improved. The app’s icon has been refreshed to better match with the style of Big Sur, though it appears regardless […]

Privacy ratings added

Apple now require developers to answer a number of questions about what their apps do with any user information and this is now shown against every so updated app on the App Store. I’m sorry for the delay in updating these but a number of personal events stopped me doing any updates for a while. […]

New look website

A very big thanks to Chris who has given my website a makeover. It’s nicer to use, has a bit of life added to it all and even an “Easter egg” (sort of) if you have a look around.

All running fine on iOS 14

Just a quick post to say that all my iOS/iPadOS apps run fine on the iOS 14 Beta so far. I haven’t been able to try 1000 Words yet as I don’t have macOS 11 installed, but when I do I’ll be checking it out for you. I don’t suppose we will have long to […]

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 […]
