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???

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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!
