iOS app nearly ready

Pic-a-POD for iOS is just undergoing its final tests before submission to the App Store. I’m pleased with how it has turned out and am enjoying being able to set my wallpaper more often, especially on my iPad where the screen is big enough to show detail. While the lock screen wallpaper can be anything, picking wallpaper that will work behind a grid of icons is more difficult. I find landscapes are usually the best.

Last week I decided that instead of having a refresh button, it would be much neater to implement the “pull down to refresh” option now used by so many apps. Many thanks to the people at enormego developers who created such a tool and made it open source. The source code is available from their page at GitHub.

My other challenge was working out a good interface for selecting different sources. With helpful suggestions from Tim, I came up with a way of implementing the standard iOS list editing tools:How to select sites.

I would prefer it if deletion was not a two-step process, since this is an operation that can easily be undone, but I also prefer to use standard interface elements, so I’m stuck with it.

The iOS support page has just gone line: http://www.picapod.com/support-ios/
Not a lot of use until the app has actually released, but it had to be done at some stage.

  1. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

    1. I use WordPress which is supposed to handle all that sort of thing. If you use any HTML5 features, then old versions of Internet Explorer will not be able to show them.
