The iOS Design Cheat Sheet

The title on this one pretty much says it all - the iOS Design Cheat Sheet is a collection of useful information for iOS developers. When you are designing a lot of applications for Apple’s touch devices like the iPhone or iPad you often have to follow some conventions regarding sizes or radii of Icons, Buttons or Tables. Because it is always a big time loss if you have to search on the Web for this information again and again, I’ve put the most important specifications into a nice iOS Design Cheat Sheet. Useful....

Precorder for iPhone

Precorder for iPhone is one of those apps which is pretty obvious and simple when you think about it. It adds automatic buffering to the camera app, reducing the chance of you missing the moments you actually want to capture. Very handy. As an additional bonus it means you don’t have to worry about starting the camera and not realising it’s in video mode, and taking a 1-2 second video instead of a photo. Not that it’s ever happened to me of course… ahem. Tags: iPhone

Little List

Little List is the littlest GTD app in the app store. It sounded like something I’d like, however it turns out I need a couple more features in my GTD apps. It’s a great concept, but it’s just a tiny bit too sparse for me. Tags: iPhone

Four generations of the iPhone

Four Generations of the iPhone from Chris Pinnock on Vimeo. Some interesting timing tests for comparison – if you own a 3GS at the moment it’s going to be hard justifying an upgrade to a 4 for performance reasons. Tags: Apple, iPhone

MonoTouch allows developers to create C# and .NET applications which will run on the iPhone and iPod touch. MonoTouch allows developers to create C# and .NET based applications that run on Apple's iPhone and Apple's iPod Touch devices, while taking advantage of the iPhone APIs and reusing both code and libraries that have been built for .NET, as well as existing skills. Interesting. Think I'll stick with XCode for now though. Tags: Apple, Microsoft, iPhone, .NET

iPhone blah blah blah

The iPhone looks very sexeh indeed. There's nothing more I can really add to the fray of people already talking about it, but I did want to comment on something I found rather amusing. While watching the news last night, they showed a clip from ABC (I think) - it had this great shot of reports/media people crowded around a prototype iPhone in a glass case, taking photos of it with their cameras or (more commonly) with their existing cameraphones. There was something incredibly comical about people pointing their cellphones at this glass encased mobile phone god. It looked like...
