Over two years ago, I began writing apps for iPhone and iPod touch. My third app was a little utility called “Sefira”. I distributed a few copies, and it was fun. However, a few copies is hardly a living, and I entered into talks with a well known software shop to sell what would become [...]
Ever gone in to Starbucks and seen those iTunes gift cards with a single use promo code on it? Perhaps you know a developer? Maybe you’ve followed one on Twitter and managed to grab a promo code for Angry Birds Space. Whatever the scenario, you’re going to want to use that promo code to download [...]
On Friday, I went to the Apple Store SoHo, on my way to work. As I walked there from the train, I saw the long lines. People were queuing up. There must’ve been about 50 people waiting outside. I thought I would be smart and buy new iPad at the SoHo store because everyone would [...]
Last night, I had the incredible opportunity to talk about Ultimate Omer 2 on the radio with Nachum Segal and ZK. (Embarrassingly, I still don’t l know what ZK stands for.) I want to take a moment to thank Gd for the opportunity. Thanks Nachum, ZK, Gary, and Dad. (If you want, I can cover [...]
In preparation for the release of some new apps and updates, I’ve made some tweaks to Apps.MosheBerman.com. If you have an iOS device, you’ll see the biggest changes. In Safari Mobile, apps.MosheBerman.com now supports “web app mode”. Tap the little action button on the bottom bar in Safari Mobile and tap “add to home screen”. [...]
Yesterday was the ninth day of forty days of winter break. I made a lot of progress, polishing up two apps and adding functionality to another one. What are you working on? Great question. One app is still super secret. Aside from that one, I’m working on a bug tracker. I’m also working on a [...]
I’ve received a message on Facebook from Ary Tebeka, an iOS developer, stating that KosherCocoa is being used in a neat little app called Mincha Alerts. The app uses background location to update itself automatically. Clever. Also, the icon is really nice. I’m on mobile so a link will follow after the break. Edit: [...]
Uncle Fred 1.5 is out! This update makes use of iOS 5 Twitter integration, and updates the graphics and app icon. I am surprised at how many downloads it received yesterday. Thanks for the support!
I’ve just submitted an updated to Nippon and Nippon Free to the iTunes App Store for review. Keep your eyes open for the update!
Zmanim for iPhone is due for an update. The previous version felt a little bit hacked together, especially since there was a performance issue with the scrolling of the table view. Additionally, a friend pointed out to me that there is no reason not to display the Hebrew calendar date as well as the Gregorian [...]
Last week, Ultimate Omer 2.5 was released. UO2.5 brings the following enhancements: • New iPad UI • French localization, courtesy of Olivier Arteau • Spanish localization, courtesy of Pavel Perez and Rabbi Abraham Srugo • Of course, bug fixes. (Or as I wrote in the App Store by mistake “big fixes”.) Despite being after the [...]
Today, I’m going to write about another app that is not mine, but I was involved in. iGematria can calculate the numerical value of a Hebrew word or phrase, using one of several methods. Then, it finds matching words and verses in the Chumash (The Five books of Moses). I am mentioning this app here [...]
Yesterday, Ultimate Omer 2.4.1 was released. This release fixes the app badge icon. With this release, the app is, B”h, quite stable. If there are any bugs or missing feature or enhancement requests that you would like to report, please contact me from within the app. In the info tab, swipe through to “contact the [...]
Ultimate Omer 2 is now live. Please go ahead and get your copy, just in time for the Omer.
Yesterday, I’ve submitted an update to Apple. That update was for an app currently known as “Sefira”. Sefira, like other similar apps, has the text for the Sefira prayer. It also updates automatically, to reflect the correct Hebrew text for the current day. The update offers some serious enhancements. For starters, Ultimate Omer 2 is [...]
Nippon has been updated. Nippon 1.1.0 adds more locations to travel to, a beautiful UI for iPad and more! Additionally, this release fixes a bug on older iOS devices which broke high scores. Additionally, Nippon Xtreme has been released. Nippon Xtreme offers ten day gameplay, following the same principles of Nippon. You have ten days [...]
Nippon for iOS is almost ready for an update. I’ve been working on it for the past several weeks. In this update are some awesome new features as well as some major updates to existing ones. While you wait for the update, why not spread the word? Tell your friends. Rate in the App Store. [...]
This post is more of a note to self than a public post. When rotating views on iPad to handle all orientations, you need to follow a few steps. 1. Add an outlet for each orientation 2. Create a UIView in the view controller’s nib file for WAC orientation. 3. Implement shouldAutorotateToInterfaceOrientation and willRotateToInterfaceOrientation:duration. When [...]
I’ve got two apps that are in review. One is an update and one is a brand new app. Details to follow.
