In a few weeks, Analyzr will ship. It will come in two versions, eventually priced at $49.95 (Home) and $495 (Pro). As I see it, there are roughly four options for handling "demo" versions of an application like this. I hope to get some insight from some other Cocoa/Mac developers and even users as far […]

I'm looking for a Ruby on Rails developer with some design skills to build out version 2.0 of a site, namely taking it from "something we can use" to "something others can use." The project is a small one that shouldn't take very long and has a budget with a comma in it, but discussions […]

Contracts

This seems to be a consistent problem with a certain portion of white collar (or perhaps no-collar) work force: an inability to think rationally, honor your word, and to not break the contract they propose and to which they agree. It's simply ridiculous how much time and energy I've wasted, my partners have wasted, and […]

Analyzr Coming Along

Still set for an early January 2011 release, Analyzr is coming along quite nicely. Within the next few weeks we'll have the website finished (it's started as a Photoshop document at this point), we'll figure out what we want to do with our licensing scheme, we'll set up our FastSpring store, we'll set up an […]

youtube-dl

A Mac application we're building includes the ability to download YouTube videos, and though we've previously written our own Objective-C code to do this, we're thinking of using this python script, youtube-dl to handle a lot of the process. I believe we'd rip out (or modify) the script to simply take in a YouTube URL […]

Everyone's got some "favorite independently developed Mac software." For example, I like MarsEdit and FastScripts, and Daniel's made great strides in improving the look and feel of his site. It's functional and suits the software he's developed. But it's probably not among anyone's lists of favorite software sites. Maybe a site like CSSEdit's, or Transmit's […]

When Apple approves it, a new version of Scorecard for the iPhone will appear in the App Store. The graphics have been redone for the Retina Display and we've modified the way tables are built for iOS 4. Both versions iOS 3 and 4 are supported, but we've dropped support for iOS 2. A few […]

In a few months we'll be shipping an application called "Analyzr" in two versions: Home for about $49 and Pro for about $495. The website (has just a simple signup form for now) is at http://analyzrgolf.com. It's a niche product of sorts (golf swing video analysis software), so I'm looking at the Mac App store […]

In the past, any software I've written has either been freeware or required only a basic registration scheme - a serial number that was validated against not only the registered user's name and email address as well as a standard formatting pattern. Some of it's been pirated, but I didn't want to spend a lot […]

The "library" is boxed up in this storage/shipping crate. You can sign up to be notified of some things at http://analyzrgolf.com/. At this time, the icon and that site are the only details we're releasing about this application. Credit to Adrian Kenny for this icon. We liked a crate icon he'd designed, and asked him […]

I'm looking for a Rails developer who will have some free time this winter for project I'd call moderate in size. The project will involve the modification of an existing Rails application into a more feature-filled version of the application. Some level of experience with design is considered a plus. If you are available, or […]

I'm building a website for a piece of software that I'll be selling shortly. I've read Matt Gemmell's take on software websites and, in general, agree with him. I will say this, though: a site can change its goals fairly drastically if it's trying to sell $19 software or $500 software, and not always in […]

Let's suppose you've got an application. The application has a search box that you use to search several collections of things below. The search is more of a filter that narrows down the results below from "all" to "whatever matches." In addition to showing you recent searches in the search menu, the application also allows […]

The way I see it, Mac application icons fit into roughly four categories. 1. Object + Tool These icons are the simplest and, I believe, the most commonly used. An icon in this category is often represented as the object on which work is done and the tool with which the work is accomplished. For […]
