TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – It’s hot! And I’m angry. I’m so angry that I’ve decided to create a new iOS app in SwiftUI. The app that I spent three days in developing is called AngryNotes. Well, I just submitted it to App Store a few minutes ago. So it won’t be available for another two or three days.
AngryNotes is a plain text viewer and editor for iOS users. I don’t quite like Apple’s Notes for iOS in some respects. Notes lets you read and write text at the same time. So you can end up losing one when in fact you intend to select and copy a word. And it’s RTF-based. So you can end up with a mixture of regular and bold text styles if you copy and paste text from some web site. And my list goes on and on.
So here comes AngryNotes. It lets you read and write notes but not on the same board. AngryNotes is a plain-text reader. And you won’t end up losing a word or more when you just want to select and copy some segment of text. AngryNotes supports the contextual menu. When you read notes with it, you can select different text sizes and fonts. Continue reading
TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – What a summer… Yes, it’s hot! Yes, I’m sweating. This scorching hot weather nearly kills me as two of my air conditioners are dead broken. Anyway, I submitted a new iPhone app several minutes ago. It’s called ClockMonkey.
ClockMonkey is a simple, boring iPhone app that I’ve developed so that I can used it at work. Actually, I also wanted to create something such that I can incorporate RxSwift/RxCocoa into the app. Don’t try ClockMonkey unless you want to waste some disk space on your phone. Continue reading
TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – We still have two more months till the cold winter season ends. And I’m just hanging on and looking forward to seeing beautiful cherry blossoms in spring. Well, it’s been about three years since I developed an iOS outside my career. The app that I just submitted to Apple‘s App Store is called RollerText 2.
RollerText 2 is an upgraded version of an iOS app that I developed more than nine years ago. It’s a virtual telemprompter that lets you roll text letter by letter. RollerText 2 also comes with a new feature that lets you highlight all occurrences of keywords you specify. Continue reading
TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – Before we enter November, I have to introduce another free Swift framework to you guys. This new framework is called TomatoAnimatedPieChart Framework.
TomatoAnimatedPieChart Framework lets you create a simple 2D pie chart. Each pie in the chart will increase its size in animation. The following is a list of features.
- Create a pie chart with colors of your selection.
- Adjust the animation speed.
- Show the name of each pie at the bottom.
TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – It was quite hot till a few weeks ago. Suddenly Susan, it’s getting code. Ughh… I hate the cold weather. Well, anyway, Sr. Tomato is back with iOS free Swift Framework No. 7! This new framework is called TomatoHorizontalBottomMenu Framework.
TomatoHorizontalBottomMenu Framework lets you create a horizontal, scrollable menu at the bottom of the screen. Each sub-menu corresponds to a specific view controller. Since the entire menu content is scrollable, you can add as many sub-menus as you want to the horizontal menu. The following is a list of features.
- Add five, six or as many sub-menus as you want to the horizontal menu.
- Use an image to characterize each sub-menu.
- Use two label colors, normal and highlight. The latter applies to the view controller that is currently selected.
- Have options of having or not having a cave-in area at the top.
- Adjust the cave-in width.
- Have options of having or not having a vertical line between sub-menus.
