iComics 2018! (No, it’s not dead!)

October 11, 2018 •

G’day! It’s been a while, but the reports of my death are greatly exaggerated. Mostly. ­čĄú

I’ll go into more depth in this post, but for starters, here’s a video I produced for the occasion. ­čśü

iComics v1.4 Released

December 14, 2017 •

tl;dr: iComics v1.4 with┬ásupport for iPhone X and the new iPad Pro is out! I’m also planning to give streaming iComics dev another try. Follow me here.

In case you missed it, I updated iComics to v1.4 and shipped it late last month. Sorry it took so long, but hopefully it fixed a lot of the issues people were having.

While a bit of an incremental update, iComics v1.4 fixed a lot of stuff under the hood:

WWDC Week 2016

July 4, 2016 •

And WWDC 2016 is now officially behind us! What an absolutely crazy week it’s been.

For the third year in a row, I sadly did NOT get a ticket to WWDC (Next year Gadget! Next year.), but thanks to the nature of my work, it’s always still absolutely worth the trip out here anyway to join in on the alternative conferences happening during the week, as well as the festivities during the evening.┬á

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┬álast year, I’ve started working for Realm,┬áremotely from Perth. This has been an absolutely amazing experience so far, having learned a HUGE┬ádeal 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. :)
