TravelSpeakr and TravelSpeakr Mini updates coming soon!

Both apps will be getting an upgrade to version 1.1.0. This will bring improved audio recordings, and the ability to take photos using the camera (iPad 2 only) for TravelSpeakr, and will bring the ability to add a photo and an audio recording to a travel update for TravelSpeakr Mini. I will post again when the updates get released to the App Store.

Codename: Tundra... One step closer to launch!

My latest project, codenamed Tundra has just been submitted to the App Store for approval. It will be the 12th app that I will be adding into my collection of apps already on the store. I hope you are getting as excited as I am! This app will hopefully revolutionize the way students sell their textbooks. I will post again when the app goes live, revealing the actual app name and all it's functions. Let's just say I'm pretty excited... It hasn't even been released to the App Store yet, and I've got big plans on the way for future updates!

YWA Calculator 1.1.0 for iPhone / iPod touch!

YWA Calculator has just received a long overdue update to visuals, while still maintaining the same easy-to-use interface. If you haven't downloaded the update already, go and check the App Store for your copy!

New App In Progress! (Codename: tundra)

I've been working on an exciting new app for students. I won't reveal it just yet, but I'll give you a clue as to what it relates to. Let's just say that textbooks are a large, sometimes unaccounted for expense to today's modern student. Many books are ridiculously overpriced, and then once you are done with them, you have to figure out how you are going to get rid of them, while trying to recuperate some of the cost. It doesn't help matters that most university run book stores take a large cut when you sell through them. What if there was an easier way to spread the word about books you have for sale to other fellow students who would be willing to pay a cheaper price for books they need to do well in school? I'll leave it at that!

Stay tuned for more updates on this upcoming project from Hanley Solid Solutions!

A long way from home?

Travelling far and wide this holiday season to visit friends and family? Why not keep them up to date on the milestones in your long journey. With TravelSpeakr for iPad and TravelSpeakr Mini for iPhone, it couldn't be any easier! Both apps offer an intuitive user interface that gets straight to the point. No figuring out what to tell your loved ones about your trip. All the relevant info is already presented for you, all you have to do is fill it in. Then, with the touch of a button, that info is formatted into an email and sent away, letting your friends and family know where you are in your trip. It's a great way for them to keep track of you, and to make sure you get there safely.

YWA Calculator HD... Update on the way!

Did you think I had forgotten about all you YWA Calculator HD users? Guess again! A fairly sizeable update is close to being released. Version 1.1.0 brings significant visual improvements, UI Improvements, and something you've all been waiting for... support for all orientations! Look for this update to arrive very soon. It's been submitted and is just awaiting approval. I'll post again when this update goes live. Stay tuned!

Prismium 1.1.0 Live!

Prismium 1.1.0 is now live on the App Store. This is a fairly large update feature wise, so that's why I chose to jump to version 1.1.0 from 1.0.2. What's new? First off, it is now a Universal app, meaning buy it once, and use it on all your devices. Secondly, the ability to make in-app purchases has been added. With this feature's launch, two in-app purchases are launched at the same time: the Bright Blues theme pack, and the Random Reds theme pack. As with future in-app purchases, these theme packs centralize around one object or theme, and contain 20 wallpapers. I hope you enjoy the refreshed Prismium! Follow me on Twitter! - HanleySolidSlns

Friday, 11 November 2011

Prismium Update Change...

Prismium's next update won't be to 1.0.3, but will instead be up to 1.1.0. The reason for this is because I have decided to enable in-app purchases and make the app universal at the same time. With the in-app purchases, you will be able to buy additional Theme Packs that are centred around a specific theme like say Winter for example. Each pack will be priced at 0.99 cents for 20 wallpapers. This update will ensure all Prismium users can continue to get value out of the app for as long as possible. I hope those of you who have downloaded this app are as excited as I am for this update! And if you haven't downloaded it yet, it'll just be more incentive for you to do so! I'll post again when the update goes live. Stay Tuned!

Three updates have been submitted and are just awaiting approval. Tuneful Tiger 1.1.4, Prismium 1.0.3, and Cinematic Cheetah 1.1.1 are set to be released very soon! I'll post when each one goes live. Stay Tuned!

Wednesday, 2 November 2011

One more thing...

Prismium 1.0.3 will be made a universal application! Soon you will be able to trick out all your iDevices with stunning kaleidoscopic wallpapers!

ReNumberIT first update!

The first update is coming out soon for my first game. RenumberIT 1.0.1 will add the ability to tweet your score from a game right from the app itself using iOS 5's built in Twitter functionality. If you haven't already downloaded ReNumberIT, check it out! At 99 cents, it's a great little game to pass the time, and because it is relatively basic in design, it makes it easier for me to add new features in the future. So what are you waiting for? I'll post again when the update goes live.

Where I am at now...

Here's what's going on currently:

Tuneful Tiger HD's update has just been submitted. It shouldn't take long for it to be approved. Version 1.1.0 brings iOS 5 Twitter functionality, and improvements to the UI on the main screen. It also includes minor bug fixes. It should be noted that the minimum iOS version required has now been bumped up to 5.0, but that shouldn't be a problem because both the iPad and iPad 2 are fully compatible with iOS 5.

Prismium has received some language additions, and it's about to receive one more in the near future! Version 1.0.2 will bring the addition of Spanish localization and 60 additional wallpapers! This will make for a total of 100 included wallpapers! On top of that, I hope to add in-app purchases in version 1.0.3, adding such things as seasonal packs, and specially themed collections.

Tuneful Tiger for iPhone and iPod touch has already been updated to include iOS 5 Twitter functionality, and is now a lean mean, music hunting machine! For those of you who have been enjoying Tuneful Tiger since it's 1.0.0 release, I'm sure you can appreciate just how much better the app has gotten with each and every update. To this day, Tuneful Tiger is one of my best selling apps. Thanks a lot to those who have downloaded it!

Cinematic Cheetah: Will be getting an update to include the Twitter functionality of iOS 5. I'm hoping to have this update finished, submitted and released in the near future.

YWA Calculator for iPhone and iPod touch may be getting some visual improvements in the near future, while still keeping the same simplistic and intuitive user interface that people have come to know.

Stay tuned as usual for all things new Hanley Solid Solutions! Follow me on Twitter: HanleySolidSlns

Thursday, 13 October 2011

Status Update!

Expect most of my apps to be getting updates in the near future to take better advantage of iOS 5! As far as new apps, I've been busy with school lately, and have run into a bit of a creative wall for the time being. Rest assured, I'm not stopping my momentum, I'm just pondering new ideas with care. Stay tuned! For even more frequent updates, be sure to check out my Twitter feed!

Apptical Albatross Bug Fix Coming Soon

I'm not sure how many users this is effecting, but it seems the initial way that Apptical Albatross would put out search queries on the App Store are no longer working for some reason. I'm hoping to have that remedied in 1.0.2, but I'm not 100% sure yet. It's sort of a trial and error right now. Stay tuned! I'll post again when it's released for downloading.

RIP Steve Jobs

The legendary force that was Steve Jobs has passed away today. So much of the world has been improved because of his vision for computing. Heck, he was part of the reason I became a developer. I wanted to become a part of the revolution. The revolution where computers took on a new form, and a new approach. A more human approach. I am saddened that he has left us, but I feel his company, Apple, with Tim Cook at the helm, will continue to innovate like never before. It almost seems to me like Steve will live on in Apple's philosophies and practices, which filtered down directly from the man himself. I just feel privileged to have at least become a part of one of his world changing initiatives.

iOS 5!

As you may or may not be aware, iOS 5 is set to get released on the 12th of October. With this in mind, you can expect my apps to slowly receive updates to take advantage of some of the new OS features. Stay tuned, and keep your eyes peeled!

Friday, 30 September 2011

New App! (Sort of)

Apptical Albatross is a little bit newer thanks to a new price tag... Free! Check it out on the App Store!

Play On! ReNumberIT now live!

The first game from Hanley Solid Solutions is now live on the App Store!

A bit about the game itself...

Looking for a new puzzle type game for your iPhone or iPod touch? This one might just suit your tastes! Not only is it a challenge, but it also has the secondary feature of helping to improve your memory. ReNumberIT is a new take on games where you repeat a pattern. The main difference? The likelihood that you'll play the exact same game twice in a row is fairly small. Every time you start a new game, a new board layout is randomly selected from a total of 9 possible boards.

 And the gameplay is simple enough for anyone to pick up and play, without having to worry about confusing controls or tactics. Random number sequences are generated and displayed for 2 seconds. After 2 seconds, the sequence is removed from the screen, and it is then up to you to recall the numbers in the correct order, and repeat it on the keypad. After you attempt to repeat the sequence in it's full length (same number of digits as was displayed), the next sequence will automatically be displayed on the screen.

Currently, there is only one difficulty level, but in future updates, I plan on having three different levels; Easy, Medium, and Hard. I will likely differentiate the difficulties either by the length of time that the sequences are displayed, or the number of digits in each sequence. Of course, this app should also be fairly easy to add localizations to, so that will also be the content of some future updates. The best part of ReNumberIT is it's initial simplicity. It makes it much more easier to add features in later, without making for a confusing and cluttered user experience. In other words, there is no high initial adjustment curve. The user will be able to better enjoy future updates and the features they bring.

So what are you waiting for? How well can you ReNumberIT???

Sunday, 25 September 2011

Game On!

A first for Hanley Solid Solutions... an attempt at a game app... has just been submitted for review. This means it won't be long before the first ever game from Hanley Solid Solutions goes live on the App Store! I'm pretty excited about this! This game is a simple one, but one that will be easy for anyone to pick up and play, that won't take up a lot of your precious time. I'll post again when it arrives on the App Store, revealing the name and a little bit about the premise of the gameplay. Thanks for reading! Stay Tuned!

Wednesday, 21 September 2011

Prismium 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 gameplan!

Prismium 1.0.1 has been submitted for approval! What does it bring with it? Localizations! It adds language support for French, German, and Italian. And if need be, I can possibly add more languages in a subsequent update, perhaps 1.0.2 (if it's really needed). Otherwise, 1.0.2 will bring 60 new images to the already existing 40, making for 100 total included images. And as a little bonus, I also hope to add in-app purchases for such things like seasonally themed kaleidoscopes, so that if you choose, you can customize your iPad in tune with the seasons. That's my game plan for Prismium's next few updates! Stay tuned for more on these!

Thursday, 15 September 2011

Coming Soon: Localizations for Prismium!

After the last few days' sales for Prismium, it seems that it would make sense to add localizations to the app. The nice thing is that there isn't too much work on my part, so the update should be able to be done relatively fast. It's just a matter of finding a day I'm not that busy, when I can sit down and code things. look for localizations to arrive in version 1.0.1. It may be that I localize in stages, meaning I may release a few point versions as I add languages. For example, after 1.0.1, 1.0.2 would add an x number of other languages. I will post again when these updates go live. Stay tuned!

Monday, 12 September 2011

Status Update...

My first upcoming game is moving along nicely. I've got the mechanics all figured, and I am now moving onto the graphics of the game. I want to make sure that the game has a fresh visual look to it, so as to make it stand out from the crowd in some way, so to speak. Anyways, that's where I'm at now. I will hopefully have gotten a good part of the visual stuff done by this week, for a submission next week.

Friday, 9 September 2011

Prismium Now Live!

The tenth app from Hanley Solid Solutions is now live on the App Store! Prismium brings a style of wallpapers to the iPad that helps make it even easier to add your own distinctly personal touch to your device. Check it out!

Thursday, 8 September 2011

Customer Support

Just a reminder, that if you are experiencing any sort of technical difficulties with any of my apps, you can contact me directly at I am almost always readily available, and don't mind helping out my customers.

That was fast!

I've already come up with my next app idea! It's going to be a new first from Hanley Solid Solutions: A Game! It will take a little bit to complete the behind the scenes workings and to add the proper visual look, but I've got a good head start on things now, so that should help cut back the time a bit. A hint about what this game is: It will be a Strategy or Puzzle game of sorts (haven't decided which category yet). Stay tuned!

Tuesday, 6 September 2011

What's New?

What am I currently working on at this point ? For now, I am working on bringing Cinematic Cheetah up to version 1.1.0. I know it has only recently received a small update from 1.0.0 to 1.0.1, but I will be overhauling it like I did with Tuneful Tiger's 1.1.0 update, so I think it only makes sense to give it a big versioning jump. Like Tuneful Tiger's last update, Cinematic Cheetah will get some big visual improvements, usability improvements, and as always, some extra functionality. And that sums up what project is on my plate for now.

Already in the works is a new app that is just waiting for approval, a new type of iPad wallpaper app. And beyond this, I of course hope to come up with many more new and exciting apps and app updates. Thanks for reading, and thanks for downloading!

As always, stay tuned for all new things Hanley Solid Solutions!

New App Coming Soon!

Coming soon: A new type of wallpaper app for the iPad. Look for it to arrive on the App Store in the near future. I'll post again when it gets released!

Wednesday, 31 August 2011

New Look!

I've decided to apply a new template to this blog. It seems to add more vibrance and liveliness to my content. I hope you'll agree!

Tuesday, 30 August 2011

Tuneful Tiger 1.1.0 !

That's right folks, Tuneful Tiger is getting somewhat of a major overhaul, going from version 1.0.4 to 1.1.0 ! This update is bringing some big improvements to visual presence, and some added functionality, making for an even leaner and meaner Tiger. Keep your eyes open for the update to rollout on the App Store in the very near future!

As always, stay tuned for all new things Hanley Solid Solutions.

Tuneful Tiger HD, now at a new price!

Tuneful Tiger HD, the iPad version of Tuneful Tiger for the iPhone and iPod Touch now has a new price! It is now priced the same as it's iPhone and iPod touch counterpart. Can you hear the Tiger's growl now? Check it out on the App Store!

Please feel free to comment!

Please don't hesitate any degree to comment on any of my posts. Feedback is the best bridge between an independent developer and the customers (or any type of developer for that matter). Also, as a little side note, please leave ratings and comments for any apps that you have downloaded and found to be useful. Heck, even if there's something that needs improving, leave a rating and comment!

It helps me to make improvements either way. As it stands now, the App Store only shows an app has ratings when the number of ratings reaches a certain amount. So the more ratings I get, the more recognition I get, which in turn helps me to come up with many more new ideas for exciting apps and app updates. Thanks for reading!

Stay tuned as always for updates about all new apps and app updates. For a more instant way to keep updated, follow me on Twitter (username: HanleySolidSlns).

That's right. That is exactly what the title of this post is. I plan on using my Twitter account as the basis for giving out promo codes to my apps every now and then. I'm currently leaning towards the following format: I'll first announce which app I plan on giving away, and then I'll state what is required to be considered for the promo code (i.e. tweet a specific phrase, get a friend to follow me, etc.) I'll then randomly select the lucky winner from those who participated. So what are you waiting for? Follow me on Twitter. You never know, it might be you who gets the first giveaway!

3 on the way...

Well, I've been developing like mad lately! Expect 3 new apps to arrive sometime in the near future! Also, as a side note, expect two minor updates to some apps. An update to Tuneful Tiger and to TravelSpeakr are just waiting for approval, and should be arriving within a few days. As usual, stay tuned! I'll post again when those 3 apps make their debut on the App Store.

PS: A hint... One of the 3 apps is the upscaled Tuneful Tiger app (which is looking pretty good so far!). It will be great for those who only have an iPad or those that want the utility of Tuneful Tiger present on all the devices they own.

Saturday, 30 July 2011

Another one gets upscaled...

A unique version of Tuneful Tiger for the iPad is my next project. A whole new UI optimized for the larger screen will be the main difference in this app. It will share the same core functionality as the iPhone/iPod touch version. It is well under way, and I expect it should only take a couple more days to complete. Stay tuned!

Friday, 29 July 2011

Submitted and waiting for approval!

The next app to be added to my lineup has been submitted, and now only waits for approval, which shouldn't take long at all. Stay tuned! I'll post again when it gets released to the App Store.

Saturday, 23 July 2011

Back in action!

I'm back at work on my next app. With any luck, It'll be finished in a day or two, and I'll be able to submit it for approval, for a release sometime this coming week. Stay tuned for further updates!

Monday, 11 July 2011

A little longer than expected...

Looks like it'll be a few weeks before my next app even gets finished. I'll be away from my development machine for a while, and won't be able to finish and upload my next product for a few weeks. In the meantime, here's a little hint...

The next app won't be a big cat of any sort, and will actually be something from the family of animals which all cats get great enjoyment from watching...

Saturday, 9 July 2011

A little bit of a wait...

Just a quick status update on my operations:

Lately, I have taken some time to get in shape. I had been putting off doing this for too long, so I thought I would finally start heading towards my ultimate potential. I was by no means unhealthy, but could've stood to gain a lot from increased physical activity, and so I commenced on the road to higher health. This is why I have been taking a while in getting my next piece of inventory to market.

Rest assured though, it is in the works, and is well on its way to becoming a reality. With some speedy coding tonight, I will hopefully get the app submitted in time for a release sometime next week. Here's hoping!

Stay tuned as always for updates about all things Hanley Solid Solutions!

Monday, 4 July 2011

A little bit of Recognition...

I am posting this a little while after the fact, but it seems TravelSpeakr has gotten some recognition. It is now featured on! It's in the Travel Diary app collection in their iPhone App Review section. It's a good feeling having one of my apps recommended by a well known publisher on the web! Thanks to all of you who have downloaded TravelSpeakr so far, and thanks in advance for those who still plan on downloading it!

Cinematic Cheetah Now Live!

Another Big Cat joins Tuneful Tiger in the Hanley Solid Solutions lineup. What is it's hunting specialty? Movies that you want to see of course! Much like Tuneful Tiger, there are 20 sections for storing the information of 20 unique movies. Once all the information is filled in, you can then become like a cheetah and bring a group into the chase. You can do this by either Email or SMS (supported devices), and you are given the option to either ask a friend if they already have the movie you're looking for, or to invite a friend to see the movie in theaters with you. Cinematic Cheetah is the most useful movie wish list app on the App Store. With the SMS capabilities, you can do more than to just record a movie you want to see. You can share an experience with friends while you catch up on classic movies you've yet to see, and modern blockbusters you look forward to seeing. Cinematic Cheetah is quite a cat!

Tuesday, 28 June 2011

Tuneful Tiger - Update 3

The third update for Tuneful Tiger, 1.0.3, is now live on the App Store. It brings with it some UI improvements, and some bug fixes.

Upscaled and ready to go!

The iPad specific version of YWA Calculator is now up and running on the App Store. Just like its iPhone and iPod touch counterpart, it is 100% free, and always will be! Enjoy!

Monday, 27 June 2011

Mini is now +

Simul-Search is no longer so Mini. Simul-Search + is the new name, as a reflection of version 1.0.1. Now for 99 cents, you get an incredible web search solution for all your iDevices!

Sunday, 26 June 2011

Tuneful Tiger : Another update soon to be released

Tuneful Tiger will get an update to 1.0.3 in the near future. This update fixes a bug recently brought to my attention, that is connected to the slider used in increasing/decreasing the rating of a song. Also, this update will bring with it a few UI improvements. Of course, there are also some general bug fixes included. Stay tuned.

Coming Soon: Lights, Cameras, Cheetahs???

A brand new app is in the pipeline folks. It's another big cat, much like Tuneful Tiger. It'll be available in the near future. The hint is in the title of this post as to what the app relates to. Let's just say a cheetah isn't good at hunting music so much as it is good at hunting something else.

Friday, 24 June 2011

TravelSpeakr is now at 1.0.1!

Minor bug fixes and the ability to disable attaching an audio file are now a reality for TravelSpeakr! Enjoy!

Feel free to drop me a line...

Don't hesitate to comment on any of my blog posts, or email me if you are experiencing issues with any of my applications. Both of these communications with me help me to better my apps even more, and help me to learn what will satisfy my customers the most!

Small TravelSpeakr Update Coming Soon

A small update is soon going to be released for TravelSpeakr. Version 1.0.1 will bring with it the ability to choose whether or not you want to attach an audio recording, and fixes the missing file icons that appear in a trip update when no images have been selected for attaching. This update will be pushed out in the near future.

Tuesday, 21 June 2011

Simul-Search update...

Simul-Search Mini will soon cease to be Mini. With an upcoming update, look for a new name that will reflect the soon to be universal app. Don't worry though. There will be no changes in key functionality. Or pricing for that matter. Just the same 99 cents.

Thursday, 16 June 2011

On a roll...

The momentum is definitely slowly picking up. Do I want to stop where I am? A definitive NO!

Wednesday, 15 June 2011

Introducing, TravelSpeakr for iPad!

Remember that hint I gave about my first iPad app? Well, wonder no more. It's now on the App Store! TravelSpeakr is an app for the iPad that makes it extremely easy to keep your friends and family up to date on where you are on a trip. There are three main pages in the app. One for Overnight stop update, one for a day rest stop update, and one for updating when you get to the final destination. Each page contains a variety of text fields asking for relevant information that pertains to the specific phase of your trip. Also on each page, are 3 areas set aside to allow for 3 unique photos of your choice from your iPad's built in photo library. Want to add an extra personal touch to your trip update? You can also record an audio message. When you're all done, just hit the "Email" button, and automatically, TravelSpeakr formats all the inputted information, photos, and audio message into a friendly and detailed trip update. It really helps to make it so you spend more time enjoying your trip, instead of worrying about what you should send to friends and family!

Tuesday, 14 June 2011

Upscale it!

Coming in the near future... An iPad specific version of YWA Calculator!

Tuneful Tiger - Update 2!

Tuneful Tiger is now at version 1.0.2! This version brings along some minor UI tweaks, some small bug fixes, and... Twitter integration! That's right! You can now tweet about the songs your hunting for! Who'd have thought that birds and tigers could get along so well?

Simul-Search Mini now live!

My third iPhone and iPod touch app is now live on the App Store! Simul-Search Mini is a brand new way to search on an iPhone or iPod touch. Ever needed to find some relevant info on the web quickly? Ever wanted that info to be as plentiful as possible, providing enough info for say a research project? Now it's possible to achieve both! Simul-Search Mini allows you to search across 4 popular search sites using only a single search bar. Just type your search terms into the search bar, hit search, and instantly, you search is being put out across Google, Bing, Yahoo! and Wikipedia, all at the same time. From there, you can just scroll between the site views. One site catches your eye in particular? Just lock it in place. Want to take the results into Safari? Just tap the "Open in Safari..." button. And then when your done examining that particular site's results, you can unlock the view, to browse the other results again. Searching the web really can be that productive and simple!

Thursday, 9 June 2011

A small hint...

I'll give you a hint regarding my first, upcoming iPad app. Let's just say it helps out those who like to travel a lot...

Tuesday, 7 June 2011

First Tuneful Tiger update now live!

Hit that App Store icon on your iPhone/iPod touch or check iTunes on your computer. The first update for Tuneful Tiger is now live! With this update, you now get a total of 20 pages for storing the information of 20 songs. There are also some small bug fixes. Keep a look out for a second update, coming soon to an iPhone or iPod touch near you.

A few quick notes

Just a few notes folks...

Firstly, it may be a bit longer than I had anticipated as far as me getting an iPad app out in the App Store. I need to re-evaluate my original idea to refine it, and make it a worthy addition to the Hanley Solid Solutions product line.

Secondly, with the announcements made on June 6th, at the Apple Developer Conference, no doubt many of you became excited with the prospects of iOS 5. I know I did. I just wanted to let it be known, that I will definitely be making an effort to take advantage of some of those new features, when it gets released in the Fall.

Saturday, 4 June 2011

A Few Upcoming Updates

Stay tuned for upcoming updates to Tuneful Tiger. As a thank you to those who have downloaded this app, and to give further incentive for those who have yet to download this app, there are already two updates in the pipelines for Tuneful Tiger. One is nearly there (just waiting to be approved, which won't take long), and the other is being worked on as I post this message now.
And with each new update, Tuneful Tiger is only going to get more and more robust!

Friday, 3 June 2011

Just A Reminder

Just a reminder to comment on any post as you see fit. Have a question about how to use an app? Post it! General support question? Post it! Friendly suggestion for future updates? Post it! Got a bug to report? Post it!

Don't hold back!

Saturday, 28 May 2011

Keep a weather eye out...

Stay tuned for an upcoming first from Hanley Solid Solutions... An iPad specific application!

Live! (x2)

Another update to YWA Calculator is now live, and ready for downloading. This update adds language support for Spanish, and now also makes it so that all your entered values get saved effortlessly after you hit the calculate button, even well after you have closed the app and stopped it from running in the background.

In a bigger "update" , my second application, Tuneful Tiger, was accepted and posted to the App Store. Tuneful Tiger sets out to make the hunt for musical prey less of a daunting task. It provides a streamlined process for recording a song's information after you hear it on the radio for example, so that when you get back to your computer, you'll be able to easily track it down for purchase. It also allows you to get your friends interested in your pursuits as well, with an easy to use email button located on each song's info page. At just 99 cents, and consistent updates in the future bringing new features and funtionality, Tuneful Tiger makes a great companion for anyone passionate about music, who seems to have a never-ending music library.

A Quick Thank You

I just wanted to take the time to shout out to those that actually visit this site, and even those that don't. I would just like to thank you for downloading my application. It's a good indication that I am doing something useful and meaningful for my fellow iDevice users, and that means a lot to me. It's a very rewarding feeling to know that people recognize your application and respect it in a certain way. It's those downloads, both new downloads and updates for existing users that make me want to improve upon existing apps, and think up new ideas for users to enjoy.

So once again, thanks!

Updated, and... another one just around the corner!

YWA Calculator is now at version 1.0.1! This version adds some additional language support (French, German, and Italian) so more people can use YWA Calculator comfortably in their native language. Also, this update adds a feature everyone can love... A permanent price drop to FREE!
But am I stopping there? No! Stay tuned for another upcoming update to YWA Calculator, as well as another brand new application!

We Have launch!

Well, it's been a few days since it has been approved, and gone on sale, but the first application from Hanley Solid Solutions is now live! YWA Calculator is a perfect tool for any student in higher education. Need to calculate your yearly weighted average fast and on the go? Just fire up YWA Calculator on your iPhone and with a few number entries, you're set. The best part is, it can also be used to estimate your yearly weighted average. Both these scenarios are especially common for those students in programs like engineering, that may require a certain yearly weighted average to progress to the next year of their program. With the way the user interface is presented, using YWA Calculator is quick, painless, and to the point. Strictly put, it does what it says it does! Check it out on the App Store if you haven't already!

A little bit of detail on my philosophy...

My philosophy with regards to the apps / app ideas I come up with is a simple one, yet it's one I really try to abide by. It's that apps should be designed so that they can become genuinely useful to someone, so that they can become an integral entity to easing any confusion in someone's life. I don't want to make a utility for which people may look at as a throw away novelty. I want it to have a real world use, not a falsified, un-realistic use. It should have some decent longevity with which it assists it's user, not a rarely occasioned, short single use every now and then.
