Prismium for iOS... Shakeup #2

Just like Prismium on the Mac, I am hoping to add the ability to create your own kaleidoscopes to the iOS version of Prismium.

Also like on the Mac, I will be doing a large visual overhaul to the iOS version. By the time I finish the update for the iOS version, the two versions of the app will hopefully share similar visual appearances.

So that's yet another future project in the beginning stages for Hanley Solid Solutions. If you've been following this blog or my Twitter feed at all lately, you've probably realized I haven't released a new app for sometime.

This is because I feel this year I should dedicate some extra time to refining and perfecting my existing catalogue of available apps. Call it cleaning, arranging, and polishing if you will.

An example of this would be the recent update to Tuneful Tiger, version 1.4.0. It brought along a simplified user interface, cleaned some things up a bit, and really refined the overall feel of the app as far as consistency and fluidity goes.

Thanks for reading!

A year with views!

Well, it's now official... I have reached 2012 visitors to this blog, in the year 2012!

When I started developing for Apple's iOS platform a little less than 2 years ago, I had never thought that I would see the numbers that I have to date. Whether it's views on this blog, or sales for an individual application, I'm still taken aback, and humbled. Humbled, that people the world over see value in the applications I take the time to create. It's very reassuring, and lets me know that the ideas in my head can be transformed into viable and useful applications for such a wide audience.

Thanks for visiting this blog, and thanks for reading!

Cirqios... Price reduction!

Cirqios, my first iPad only game, has been given a price reduction!

Originally $2.99, the price is now set at $1.99!

If you haven't checked out Ciqios yet, and you consider yourself a gamer of any level (or you just enjoy games every now and then), you owe it to yourself to look at Cirqios on the iOS App Store.

What are you waiting for?

Prismium for Mac 1.1.0 ... Update out now!

If you have already purchased Prismium for Mac, your free 1.1.0 update is now available for download on the Mac App Store!

If you haven't already purchased Prismium on the Mac, now there's even more reason to do so... You can now make your own kaleidoscope wallpapers from images stored on your Mac's hard drive!

That's not all though... Prismum has also received a visual facelift! Now it's user interface is even more simple and elegant than it was previously.

With this update, Prismium is almost like an entirely new app! If you haven't already, check it out on the Mac App Store today!

Prismium for Mac 1.1.0

Prismium for Mac version 1.1.0 is the big shakeup that I mentioned earlier on this blog. It will allow you to choose between the already included kaleidoscope wallpapers, or you can transform any image on your Mac's hard drive to a unique kaleidoscope wallpaper.

Also, as a secondary, yet just as important feature addition, the user interface of Prismium for Mac has been greatly improved and simplified in version 1.1.0. It has been more stylized, and brings more focus to the wallpapers themselves.

All in all, I think Prismium for Mac 1.1.0 will be a great release.

Tuneful Tiger 1.4.0 out now!

It's been out for a few days now, but Tuneful Tiger 1.4.0 for iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App Store. This new update is almost like a second platform for me... In the way that brings things up to where it's even easier to add exciting new features with little to no effort on my part. A few of these features, I already have fully planned out. All I have to do is add them in with updates! These features will be rolled out in the next few minor releases (i.e. 1.4.x).

I hope you are as excited as I am about the direction that Tuneful Tiger is headed in... It's come along way in aesthetics and functionality from the version 1.0.0 release, and is still one of my best selling iOS apps.

Thanks for reading!
