Almost caught up!

Well, with the backlog of requested floss lists that is...  Here's what I've gotten done over the last few weeks:

So, just NPI Silks left.  I would've finished that one today but I didn't feel like going through that PDF and typing everything in today.  Everything else on this list fell into place pretty well with judicious use of copy, paste, and regular expressions (programmer thing).

Next stop: Yarn Inventory! Next week probably. :)

Signing issues resolved!

Whew.  That was scary.  The worst part was not having a reliable way to test.  I'd update the app then have to wait 30 minutes for the market to update and test on my wife's phone.

Floss Checklist signing problems!

Sorry! If you purchase or update Floss Checklist and it says it's not properly signed let me know! I have reuploaded another update (1.9.02) but I don't know if it's signed correctly either!

Show of good faith!

Had a few problems getting my new PC setup for app development, but that's all behind me now.  As a show of good faith for all the stuff I need to do, I've added the Isacord flosses to Floss Checklist and uploaded it.  This is also a bit of a test to make sure my PC signs the updated apps correctly.  :)

Also, let me outline what I have on the horizon for the apps (in no particular order):

Floss Checklist 

  • Valdani
  • Rainbow Gallery
  • Caron Collection snow
  • DMC Perle 8, 12
  • Anchor Ritorto Fiorentino 8, 12
  • DMC Retors d'Alsace 5, 8, 12
Yarn Inventory
  • Email printable list to yourself.
Stitcher's Helper
  • Project/shopping list money totals.
  • A way to measure how long a project took.
  • Backup SH to SD Card (duh...  why didn't I think of this before).
Bead Checklist
  • Add more Miyuki bead types. 

So, over the next coming days/weeks I hope to have all of this done.  My weekends coming up are rather full sadly, so dev time may be a bit sparse.

Also, despite 20 or so purchases I still haven't gotten any feedback for Communication Helper.  I was really hoping folks would get in touch with me with feedback.  Anyway, if you're out there, email me!  I want to know how your experience has been so far!

Last bit of trivia, my plan is to make a game app before 2012 is over.

Coming Soon...

Hello! Pretty much the entire month of December I took off from my app dev. It seemed prudent with the holidays and my real job time off. In addition I've bought a new dev PC! You'll be happy to know I'm currently in the process of setting it up to start implementing all the great suggestions I received during my sabbatical.

Lots of new updates coming soon! Stay tuned!
