Fare-thee-well 2015! Sup 2016!

December 31, 2015 •

… that’s it? 2015 is over?

I’m not sure how good a sign that is, but I can’t believe how fast 2015 flew by. That was truly ludicrous.

I said last year that 2014 was a ‘maintenance year’ for me. A lot happened, but it felt like all the effort that went in simply maintained the status quo. Nothing really advanced. I could probably chalk that up to the fact that I had to spend a chunk of my time re-designing iComics for iOS 7, as well as shifting house several times.

No, if I had to describe 2015 in one word, I would say ‘transformative’. So much changed, SO MUCH CHANGED and it was an exhilarating and amazing time. :)

Some of my highlights of 2015 included: Continue reading

iComics – December 2015

December 13, 2015 •

Hi everyone! I can’t believe 2015 is already nearly over! Jeez!

I thought I’d do a reeeeally quick update on where we’re at with iComics, and what the current goal is. :)

Pokédex for iOS

December 2, 2015 •

At the start of October, Pokémon published a brief notice stating that Pokémon for iOS would be retired at the end of November. True to their word, at midnight of the 1st of December (around 4pm in my time zone yesterday), the server running Pokédex for iOS’s in-app content purchases was taken offline and the app itself disappeared from the App Store within the hour. There were no official news posts marking its passing, no tweets, no acknowledgements… it just went away. Continue reading

29. The final year of my twenties.

November 20, 2015 •

(This photo here is my birthday dinner with my parents, sister and grandmother. :) )

Whelp! There we go. I’m 29 now. The final year where I can say ‘I’m in my twenties’. Criminy. How frightening. Doesn’t time fly. XD

In any case, as I like to do every year, here’s a quick flashback of my previous year of existence. I like to do this just to reflect on what I spent my year doing, so I can better figure out what I’m going to do from here. :)

Hands-down, it’s been an absolutely ludicrous year; much more different, and much more transformative than I think I could have anticipated this time last year. So much has happened, so much has changed, and I’m really happy it turned out the way it did. :) Continue reading

TOCropViewController – An open source image cropper for iOS

June 21, 2015 •

Over the years, I’ve built up a pretty crazy list of features that I want to add to iComics. One feature on that list that’s been kicking around since pretty much day 1 has been the ability to crop page images.

iComics – State of the Union – May 2015

May 25, 2015 •

Sorry about the last update being so long ago!

2015 has been absolutely ridiculous for me so far (In a truly good way, that is!).

Thanks to a talk I did on integrating Realm into iComics last year, I’ve started working for Realm, remotely from Perth. This has been an absolutely amazing experience so far, having learned a HUGE deal about how companies operate in Silicon Valley, as well as integrating with a team that operates in multiple time zones. The fact that this all came about as a result of my work on iComics is something I still haven’t managed to process yet. Truly awesome.

In any case, now all of the main excitement has started settling down (Although not for long I’ll wager!), I’ve been looking at the next batch of features and upgrades that iComics needs. Since I’ve been getting quite a few emails asking about updates to the app, it seems a bit of a status update is already long overdue. Here’s some of the major points on we’re were at right now. :)
