TOKYO (MacHouse) – This March has turned out to be a quite productive month for me. So far, I have released six applications. Of course, most of them are small ones except attributedCode. Whether you believe it or not, I’m ready to introduce one more application to you today. 7 applications in a month… That’s a new record. This new software release is called PhotoSnap.

What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing attributedCode for Mac OS X

Mac OS X software attributedCode

TOKYO (MacHouse) – We still have 10 days left this month. So far, I’ve released five applications so far in March, I believe. And I’m ready to introduce another one. It’s a Mac application that I submitted to Mac App Store several hours ago. This new software release is called attributedCode.

attributedCode lets you design an attributed string (NSAttributedString & NSMutableAttributedString) and generate Objective-C code for it at the same time and in real time. It supports two development platforms – OS X and iOS. Depending on which development platform you choose, you will end up with different lines of code. attributedCode supports such styled text attributes as text color, text background color, text alignment, underlining, striking-through, text shadow, kerning (space between letters), paragraph (space between lines), text stroke. It doesn’t just let you generate Objective-C code. It also lets you save current attributed text as an image file. Furthermore, you don’t have to worry about losing progress after quitting the application. You can let the application save text attributes internally. Also, you can save current progress as an application document file so that you can reproduce last progress at any time.   Continue reading

What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing desKuick for Mac OS X

Mac OS X software desKuick

TOKYO (MacHouse) – I have released four desktop applications so far this month. I have never been so productive since my mother’s death. That’s probably something to do with the weather. February is definitely not my favorite month. Finally, we are under March. And we’ve been enjoying warmer days. Well, I have already submitted my fifth Mac software title to Apple‘s Mac App Store more than 12 hours ago. This new software release is called desKuick.

desKuick is a desktop application that lets you change desktop wallpapers quickly. That’s made possible by its status menu. All you have to do is to explore desKuick’s status menu and select one, and the application will instantly swap desktop wallpapers. Of couse, you could alway change desktop pictures by opening System Preferences. I’ve developed desKuick because I don’t want to open System Preferences each time I have to change desktop pictures.   Continue reading

What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing LightNSound for iOS

iOS iPhone iPad software LightNSound

TOKYO (MacHouse) – Hmm… When was the last time I developed an iOS application? That was the beginning of last January. So it wasn’t a long time ago. Anyway, I submitted a new iOS application to Apple‘s App Store a while ago. This new release is called LightNSound.

LightNSound is an iOS application that lets you use light and sound effectively through your device.  It gives the user assistance with use of their device while they are on the road or traveling out in the wild.  Imagine a situation where you are injured and want to call somebody’s attention at night when you know they are close but cannot locate you.  Maybe, the best thing you can do is to display a blinking text message with your iOS device.

Another thing that you can do when you are in trouble is to let LightNSound utter a vocal phrase through your iOS device.  So this application is equipped with a text-to-speech function so that you can call somebody’s attention when they cannot see you.   Continue reading

What’s Coming Up Next? – MacHouse Introducing PDFSlashAll for Mac OS X

Mac OS X software PDFSlashAll

TOKYO (MacHouse) – When you work on something that you have never done before as a software developer, it’s possible that the current project will eventually reach a point where you have to abandone it. Oh, whoa… That’s what happened to me yesterday. Actually, I have a backup plan. Several hours ago, I submitted a simple application to Mac App Store, which I finished in some 8 hours. This new software title is called PDFSlashAll.

PDFSlashAll is a simple desktop application that lets you save every single page of your PDF document as a separate PDF file. So if your PDF document has 500 pages, then you will end up with 500 PDF files, each of which contains just one page.   Continue reading
