Carminder 1.0.4 is live

:  ~ 25 sec read

This version brings:
• Badge count. You can now set the badge on the app icon for the number of events, as follows: tomorrow, within two weeks, within a month, all and none.
• Finally fixed all the bugs preventing the keyboard to hide on the iPad.
• Fixed a bug I introduced in last version where the keyboard would sometimes not hide on the iPhone.
• Changed the name in the App Store.
• Minor overall tweaks.

Late spring cleaning

Moved my blog here. Closed blog.rolandleth.com. Moved my work to rolandleth.com/work. Result: more organized, easier to maintain, but, most importantly, easier for everyone to interact with everything.

Ikonica

Awesome app for previewing app icons directly on your device. Easy, seamless integration with your Mac: drag and drop an image to the menubar icon, and, bam, it's on the device. The Mac companion app is free and can be found on the Mac App Store here.

The only caveat is that you can only preview one icon at a time. I ==really== hope they will add the possibility to add several icons (grid or even scroll based) so you can be able to compare several iterations at once.

Otherwise, amazing app. You can find the app here; via BeautifulPixels.

Thriving in an App Store world

I know this isn't new anymore, but I just wanted to share (and bookmark);
it's worth it.

Carminder

Finally submitted Carminder. Can't wait for it to go live!

iPhone App showcase

Wow. This has to be one of the prettiest free templates to showcase
your iPhone app.

Search Kit

I need to bookmark this. And so should you.

There's this framework called Search Kit, which despite being insanely powerful and useful for finding information, is something that almost no one has ever heard of.

UIEffectDesignerView

Damn, this is pretty nice. Add particle effects to UIKit, just like in Cocos2D: create them with UIEffectDesigner, then add them to your project with UIEffectDesignerView. Works for both iOS and Mac. Still in beta, but I haven't found any glitches so far.

It's as easy as:

#import "UIEffectDesignerView.h"
...
UIEffectDesignerView* effectView = [UIEffectDesignerView effectWithFile:@"name_of_your_choice.ped"];
[self.view addSubview:effectView];

Timepiece Symbol font

Whoa, indeed.

Whoa. Timepiece, a symbol font that displays numeric time with analog face: http://t.co/km3N0rbhyd (thx @fchimero).
