Wicca Plus v2.1 in the Works

Posted 2014.01.09 21.50 in iPhone by Stephanie

Work has begun on an update to Wicca Plus.

While I would prefer not to pre-announce new features / additions incase unforseen circumstances mean some things have to be dropped or delayed, there are a couple things which will definitely be included in the next release:

  • Southern Hemisphere Support – the sabbats section has been rewritten and a new option added to the Settings screen, allowing the app to correctly display the sabbats and lunar phases for everyone in the Southern hemisphere.
  • More Accurate Lunar Data – the Full and New Moon times were originally calculated using some math based on the average lunation period. This was only accurate to within plus or minus several hours, as the Moon’s orbit is not quite circular. I’ve now incorporated lunar data from a NASA website, which is accurate to less than 3 minutes from now till the end of the year 2100.
  • A New Font – this is purely cosmetic, but the Papyrus font is somewhat stale and old. I’ve found a new font which I rather like; hopefully this won’t draw more complaints than Papyrus did.
  • Change The Title – a new option has been added to the Settings screen, enabling users to change the title of the book. I have always called my book Liber Umbrarum et Lux but you can name your book as you see fit. This affects the Main / Contents page, and the Front Cover screen (in the Prefixes section.)
  • Minor bug fixes, performance improvements, and as always, corrections to spelling mistakes that slipped through the content editing.

New entries and some other new features are also in the works.

There’s no ETA for when this update will be out. Originally I had a tentative target date of Imbolc, but we got hit hard just after Yule by an ice storm and that has set things back by a week or more.

Overlord! Updated

Posted 2013.11.27 21.47 in iPhone by Stephanie

Overlord! is a calendar replacement app designed for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

It exists to fill a gap that I felt was left when Apple updated their own Calendar app a couple months ago, when they released iOS 7.

Specifically, they removed their calendar’s List View, and they crippled their Month View somewhat. Those were the two views I used exclusively. I was unhappy (and figured others might feel the same way.)

Consequently, I dug up Overlord! – originally an app for the Newton Messagepad 2000. I took the basic concept from that old Newton app, and built and expanded on it.

This update corrects a bug that affected multi-day events, and improves how multi-day events are handled and displayed.

For more information, please have a look at the Overlord! Calendar Replacement app page.

Overlord! is available in the App Store.

Site Overhaul Complete

Posted 2013.07.24 14.26 in Computers/Internet/Technology by Stephanie

So, I think I’ve just about finished up with the site overhaul. For now, at least.

When I started, the theme was all dark with lots of heavy borders and all. I had created the theme based on radiograms being stuck to a bulletin-board. It was almost entirely monochrome, dark, and monospaced.

And there were 66 static pages, a carry-over from when this was more of a ‘site’ than a ‘blog’. That was a mess of pages when it came to any updates, and navigation was crazy. There were 4 layers of child-pages, in some cases. Categories, sub-categories, sub-sub-categories, and sub-sub-sub-categories.

Last look at the old site.

Now, the new theme is a lot more light and airey, and there’s very few lines. What lines there are, are thin.

And I’ve managed to cut the static pages down to 19. It’s more than I wanted, and admittedly there’s no way to get to some of them without the Site Map page. But I felt I had to hang on to a few of them, at least for now.

The iPhone pages have to stay because I have a few entries in the App Store and need to have a place for people to go for ‘support’ etc. However, I’m looking to move my IOS apps and support to a different domain so they won’t be in my ‘personal’ stuff any more.

The Laser pages had to stay because they’re still so dang popular. Even so many years later, the diy DVD laser page is still getting a few dozen visitors a day. I wish the safety page was as popular.

The ham radio pages were pruned and consolidated a bit. Although I haven’t been an active ham for quite a while, I’m not ready to bump them off into the archives just yet.

The other static pages may continue to exist as-is, or might get archived at some point. As always, if you can’t find it, try the search box on the right.

Cheers!

PassGenR 3.0 – Approved

Posted 2013.05.31 18.15 in iPhone by Stephanie

In the App StoreIt’s approved! I just got the email this afternoon from Apple.

PassGenR version 3 is now available on the App store.

I’m kind of surprised actually – it only took a couple days. Used to take a week or so to get an update out.

The updates were detailed in this recent post.

Now, on to app number two…
