Tick’d Off – it’s my latest app.
Tick’d Off is a straightforward list management app, designed to allow you to maintain all your tick-lists (aka check-lists, to-do lists) in one place.
From a list of groceries to pick up on the way home from the office, to a project overview list of several dozen items spanning many months, Tick’d Off can help you organize and maintain what you need to do, and when you need to do it.
Available now, at the App Store!
Sorry the posts have been few and far between recently / the past few months / this year.
The good news – I’m barely depressed at all lately, so no doom-and-gloom posts to darken your days.
The ‘bad’ news – I’ve been so busy working on things, I keep forgetting to stop and make time to post about stuff.
I’m doing about 50% working on app-related things, and 50% working on my ‘regular day job‘ stuff. App stuff is fun and interesting, the day job stuff is…day job stuff. Plus, it’s tax-time which is always fun. You know, fun like dental surgery.
I’ve got a brand-new app I’ve been trying to finish for a week and a half now, but I keep finding new features to add and new bugs to squish. Then I have another update I want to push out for Overlord! – a minor bug squish and another new feature or two.
Then I have a Very Big update for Wicca Plus to get cracking on. More features, more goodies. I don’t want to spoil it, but if I manage to succeed at what I’m planning, it will be very nifty.
Overlord! version 1.1 is now available on the App Store.
This version includes a couple new features that people have been asking for.
- The #1 feature was to change the colour scheme. Turns out, Emergency Yellow just isn’t anybody’s favorite, so now there’s a variety of ‘flavours’ such as Cupcake, Grape, Tangerine, et cetera.
- The second big freature is full calendar management – rather than just toggling what calendars to display or suppress you can now add, remove, or edit (name and colour) the calendars on your device.
- Finally, alarm options for all-day events have been greatly improved and expanded.
Some other improvements include better handling of shared / cloud calendars, various bug fixes, and minor corrections.
For more information, please have a look at the Overlord! Calendar Replacement app page.
Wicca Plus version 2.1 has been released on the app store!
Two quick tips:
To set the app for Southern Hemisphere mode, go into Settings -> Wicca Plus -> North/South Hemisphere. I decided to do it this way as it’s likely something you’ll only need to do once, and it didn’t make sense to add the whole location framework for a function that’d only typically be needed one time.
Likewise, printing support is enabled in Settings. In Settings -> Wicca Plus -> Show Print Button can be toggled on and off. For those who do not have an AirPrint printer, or don’t need to print, the Print button doesn’t need to appear on the screen.
If you do want to print, toggle Show Print Button to on, and then it will appear next to the Edit button at the top right corner of your entries.
The past six weeks, from Yule to Imbolc, have been pretty unpleasant here.
We had the ice storm, which led to damage to the house and a week-long power outage. My cats and I had to seek refuge with my sister. The house almost froze over while I was away and all my aquarium pets died.
Since the power was restored, my fridge has died, my furnace has needed work twice, the washer and dryer have needed attention, and the stairs to the cellar collapsed.
All in all, it’s been an unpleasant (and expensive) six weeks. Here’s hoping that things will improve between now and Ostara.
Looking ahead, I’m still working hard to get the update to Wicca Plus finished. It’s about a fortnight behind schedule due to the aforementioned issues, but with luck it should be completed shortly.
