No coding tonight :(

My office has no A/C this evening. 87 degrees and rising... stupid Georgia.

Back from vacation!

Went to Asheville, NC with the wife for a much needed vacation.  Back now and will update the apps again very soon!

Took a few days off

Played a bunch of Terraria.  Super fun game.

Anyway, I should get back on both projects today.  I have some things I need to add to both.  Priority:

  • Floss Checklist - shopping list, maybe more floss companies and lists?
  • Stitcher's Helper - stitch count calculator, shopping list screen improvements
  • Need to add an about page to both apps
As always, if there are any issues let me know!

Possible new app tonight!

One of my Stitcher's Helper patrons suggested a great idea for a new app, so I'm hoping to get a version on the market tonight.  Will announce what it is when I post it!

Version 1.1 uploaded!

I should probably not have made it version 1.* since it's still in beta, but...

Anyway, 2 people have bought it! 1 is my mom, though. :)

New in version 1.1:

  • If the project screen can't find an image associated with a project, a placeholder will show up in the gallery.
  • Added a cancel button to the calculator add to project dialog.
  • Shopping list implemented!
    • For a project item to show up in the shopping list, the following must be true:
      • The project is exists on must be set to "In Progress"
      • The project item must be set to "Include on Shopping List"
    • Long touching an item on the shopping list will remove it from the list by setting it's include checkbox to false.

Also, if you have calculator suggestions send them to me! I'd be happy to add them. :)
