Welcome to iOS 7, goodbye to some old friends

October 28, 2013

iOS7

As you surely know by now, Apple recently updated it’s operating system to iOS 7. While the update has been controversial, it’s certainly been incredibly successful in terms of numbers of users that have updated… In fact, it’s probably fair to say that if you’re reading this you’ve already updated…

While some users have complained that it’s just a cosmetic change, there’s actually quite a lot of things that have changed underneath as well – things that have broken many of the apps we all use everyday, including some of our own.

Whenever Apple updates iOS it invariably causes problems with older apps and as a developer, you’re faced with the task of tracking down what’s gone wrong and fixing it. This isn’t always an easy task (especially if the original programmer has moved on) and as iOS has become increasingly complex, we now find some users reporting bugs that we can’t even reproduce, let alone fix.

So this time, we made the difficult decision to remove any apps that didn’t seem to be working properly rather than update them. The time and expense involved just couldn’t be justified, especially since Apple changed the rules regarding App updates. It used to be that an updated app would jump back to the top of the new releases list (which meant a little spike in sales for your efforts) but too many developers were abusing that by releasing ‘fake’ updates… So now, updating our apps has no impact on sales whatsoever – which would be OK if current sales were high enough to cover the cost, but in reality they aren’t.

Apps that have been put out of their misery are: Playlist Alarm Clock, RandomPlay, MyCal, NightTime Plus, PlaySafe and Juiced. We’re sad to see them go, but it’s also nice to know that we don’t have to worry about them anymore…

MyCal iPhone Calendar Wallpaper tip

January 4, 2011

Here’s a great little MyCal tip from one of our MyCal users (thanks Ron!)

When you press the power or home buttons on the iPhone, the lock screen appears and you can see your MyCal calendar wallpaper. The only problem is, it’s only visible for about 6 seconds and that might not be long enough to get a proper look at the calendar.  The solution: just move the unlock-slider a little bit to the right (not all the way across though!), hold it there and you can examine your calendar as long as you want.

Happy New Year Everybody! Free January iPhone Calendar Wallpapers

January 2, 2011

Goodbye 2010 and hello 2011 – let’s hope it’s a good one.

Here’s a few calendar wallpapers to get you off to a good start. As per usual, the wallpapers are created with our MyCal app that lets you superimpose calendar information on the picture of your choice and then save it out as a wallpaper image.

Updated: As some of you pointed out, we managed to be extra generous and give you 5 calendars instead of the usual 2 – unfortunately they were for Jan 2010 rather than 2011 so absolutely no use to anyone at all… Apologies for the stupid mistake and if you did download them and haven’t noticed yet, please don’t rely on them for anything important. We’d hate you to miss an important date because of us 🙂

 

3 more after the break…

Free September iPhone Calendar Wallpapers

It’s the 1st of the month again and you know what that means – more free calendar wallpapers.

As you can see by the size of them, we’re now supporting the iPhone 4’s retina display but don’t worry if you haven’t upgraded yet, your old iPhone will just scale them down to fit.

The first one shows the actual innards of your iPhone 4 – the second is a nice bright image courtesy of Vlad Studios. As per usual, the wallpapers are created with our MyCal app that lets you superimpose calendar information on the picture of your choice and then save it out as a wallpaper image.
