As it starts to become Christmas in my part of the world I would like to take a minute to say thank you to everyone who has used something I have developed over 2018.
My hope is that even though there are some bugs along the way that the applications I make and post bring some joy or make your life a little bit easier in some fashion so I would like to say thank you.
As of right now all apps and updates for 2018 are finished! There will not be a new update for any uApps application until early 2019 with big things left to come…
With that said a big piece of the uApps puzzle was absent this year: uSurf. uSurf got to be developmentally challenging to make progress moving forward so I decided I was going to completely re-design and recode the entire thing using swift and webkit. While there are still a lot of things to be developed for uSurf 6 because it is the holidays here is a sneak peak of the new UI you will see when launching uSurf 6:
So exciting things are coming in terms of uSurf, uTime, and something else completely new! However, they take time and I am a busy college student about to graduate so a lot of these projects are done in free time so again thank you for bearing with me.
Again thank you and I hope everyone has a terrific holiday and a happy new year!
uTime 2.3.1 and uSurf 5.3.1 are now available for download. Both contain bug fixes but the main thing is that the snow has been removed along with other holiday goodies. Doesn’t seem right to have it snow when the temperature (where I am anyways) is nearing 90 degrees! Enjoy.
It’s the holiday season and as traditon holds it I update all uApps applications to have snow falling throughout the cold weather months. The tradition remains this year with EVERY uApps application getting a holiday update. Enjoy the holidays everyone.
However, uTime gets a little more than just snow falling so I want to highlight them both specifically.
uTime 2.2 macOS:
-Added a holiday icon!
-Added snow falling throughout the App!
-Added support for the MacBook Pro Touch Bar!
-You can now easily add and delete timers with the Touch Bar!
– Touch Bar changes depending on what you are doing within the app.
-Added the ability to sort timers by date!
-When a timer is deleted a window will appear briefly to alert you of deletion.
-If extra loading time is needed on startup the UI will reflect this
and of course uTime 2.2 for iOS:
– Added choice to sort by date
– UI Changes for iPad
– Fixed error on iPad where there was no indication of the countdown date
So macOS gets a little more love but getting the timers to sort by date proved more difficult than I originally thought. Either way these are going to be the last updates of the year so I hope you all enjoy them and the holiday!
If you have tried to load the info tabs on our iOS Apps today (settings for uSurf) you will notice that the load time for the view is very long AND doesn’t show any of our information tickers. This is due to the numerous outages along the web from DDOS attacks on servers today.
The server used for these tickers have been hit and are down so our applications are trying to load this data but cannot reach the server. Eventually the view will load if given time.
All should be back up and working sometime soon I hope but this is not something I personally control but thought I should give an explanation for why this occours.
I hope you didn’t think I was done giving uSurf love! It just took some times due to some complications with storyboard files… However, uSurf 5.2 is now out on the App Store!
The changes are:
Current Version 5.2:
-Added button to download uTime
-New font around the map to match other uApps apps.
-Added a popover view to change the homepage (iPad)
-Fixed issue with iPad and portrait fullscreen.
-UI Fixes (other than font changes)
That’s all for uSurf in this update. Check back here for more information on uSurf!
After releasing our newest app uSurf a little over a year ago I thought it was time to bring out something new. I am happy to announce that today (also the iPhone’s 9th birthday!) our brand new app uTime is officialy on the App Store waiting for download!
uTime allows you to have a multitude of count down timers that will tell you the exact time that is left towards a specific date in the future. uTime also uses iCloud to sync so all the dates on your iPhone will sync with your iPad as well (yes it is universal)!
uTime’s official App Store description:
Welcome to uTime!
uTime is a brand new App that will allow you to see how much time there is left until an event in the future.
uTime syncs between devices so the timers on your iPhone are the same as they are on your iPad!
Support can be found by hitting the support button in the information section. It is the best way to keep up to get support with either problems or upcoming features.
To add another timer hit timers and then the plus button OR hit the add timer button on the main screen. The current time and date will be added to the list and then you can change it from the home-screen!
