Book update

I just heard from my publisher and it looks like with all the excitement around Apple’s new iPad an update to my book may be in the very near future.

Stay tuned…

Happy New Year

A little late (I just got home from a couple of weeks in Canada), but I hope everyone had a great holiday season and here’s to what I hope will be a great new year..

Freeview.com.au launched

When I’m not writing iPhone or Mac applications, I still dabble a little in web development.

I’ve just finished a project for Freeview (working with the good folks over at McCann Sydney) to build a CMS for their website.

You can check it out here

I just received the following email from Apple (Conversion farts when you shake it – hence the word is in the search keywords):

“We’ve reviewed Conversion 2.2 and determined that we cannot post this version of your iPhone application to the App Store at this time because of inappropriate ‘Keywords’ used to identify your application. We cannot post applications that contain irrelevant keywords in their search criteria. Keywords must be applicable to the application content. It would be appropriate to remove fart.”


My book arrived!

It’s thinner than I thought it would be. They sent me lots of copies:

Pretty much the best online resources for new (and non-new) Cocoa/Objective-C developers are Scott Stevensons’ Cocoa Dev Central and Theocacao sites – I cannot recommend them enough.

Scott has been writing tutorials for five years, and has just announced his new book: Cocoa and Objective-C: Up and Running which is sure to be a classic.

Glossy Buttons

Part 1 in a series on how to make glossy buttons in your iPhone applications.

CoreLocation on a Mac

Matt Gallagher has written a small sample app that demonstrates how to use CoreLocation in Snow Leopard.

It’s interesting to see how some of the iPhone functionality is coming over onto the Mac…

iPhoneDevCamp has a great list of free, open source iPhone libraries and applications.

Among them are ARKit: an Augmented-Reality framework and OpenFlow: a CoverFlow replacement for Apple’s private CoverFlow API.

Book News

According to the Peachpit website, my book should be available for purchase in just over a week. I’ve made all the example code used in the book available for download here.
