When Game Center was released, I thought, “Ha, wouldn’t it be fun to have Game Center in one of my apps!”. Well, I added support in BART Fares and the free update was released last week.
I guess “death” would be too strong a word. In the beginning of the AppStore, the Prerendered Icon Flag was rarely used. Most apps on the App Store consented to having a gloss effect applied to them.
In all the fanfare over the iPad version of iOS 4.2. The 4.2 for iPhone update is being suffocated. I was trying to to get my birds to memorize a ringtone today when I clicked on the SMS alert setting in the Settings app. The new SMS alerts play longer than the original alerts. These new additions seem much more creative than the original set, even though we still cannot select a custom sound to play.
BART Fares didn’t have much functionality before yesterday. It would just retrieve the current fare using the BART API. I was thinking about features that bay area travelers would find useful. One feature that BART Fares was missing was the ability to locate a nearby station.
When the iOS 4.2 Gold Master SDK was released yesterday, all devs eagerly swarmed around the Apple servers to download a copy. I let my copy download overnight and installed it today. I decided to open up on of my iPhone projects to ensure compatibility. I was poking around the build info when I noticed that the previous SDKs were AWOL.
