On App Store Pricing and Developer Payments

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Development

UPDATE: A reply from Apple I had a rather long and messy discussion with Garret Murray on twitter today, after he expressed some concerns regarding apparent discrepancies in App Store developer payments. I think the confusion can be put down to two issues: Apple is less than transparent There is a minor misunderstanding with regard to sales taxes On Transparency The only official word […]

Busy Bee

Posted Posted in Development

Things are busy here at the moment. Firstly, I have a new scuba diving app in progress for iPhone OS. With the back end work done and wrapped in a nice set of unit tests, I’m finishing off the interface, which requires a lot more thought than either Air Depth or Depth Gauge. Secondly, I’m working on a large rails app for a friend’s […]

WARNING: MacFUSE, Disk for iPhone

Posted Posted in Development

UPDATE: I have my MBP back and working. The Logic Board was fried. I suspect this was a remarkable coincidence and I have since started using Disk for iPhone again. It is working perfectly. However, I can’t claim with any degree of certainty whether or not it had anything to do with my MBP’s sudden demise. A friendly warning. I wanted something to mount […]

Inconsistency Upsets Me

Posted Posted in Development, Diving

UPDATE: Air Depth and Depth Gauge are no longer available. Check out Gas Manager on the App Store. UPDATE: I’ve seeded new versions of each app. So today version 1.0.1 of Depth Gauge was rejected by Apple. Why? Because it contains a disabled slider control. A control disabled on purpose and for good reason. A control included and displayed to the user for good […]
