The Daily Kernel: Hmm. Where To Save This New... →
machosx: The inspiration behind my latest hack, Shelf. I don’t know about you, but what one of my biggest worries when I’m coding is deciding where to save the project I just created (be it Xcode, Eclipse, NetBeans, etc.) Other times, I download SDKs & tools which include many different sample projects….
This one's for you, Apple developers.
Meet “Shelf”. Starting at 99 cents (v0.1), it’s a nice utility that we’re sure every Apple developer out there will find indispensable. If you work with any of Apple’s platforms (or know somebody who does), you should definitely check it out!
No Longer Available For Hire.
We’re sad to announce that we will no longer be taking projects for third-party clients. We’ve got many cool things & ideas we want to try out. That just doesn’t leave room for us to focus on clients. Expect Tipbox to see some updates in the near future.
1.1 Beta Now Available
Beta testers! Roll up your sleeves! The 1.1 beta is now available on @testflightapp. Please make sure to report any bugs you notice.
Our DNS provider seems to be having issues right now, so don’t worry if nothing in Tipbox (or Scapehouse.com for that matter) loads. Should be fixed soon…hopefully!
Tipbox 1.0 approved!
We’ve got some news. Oh, it’s just that…Tipbox got approved by Apple and is right on track for our September 15th release date!!! :D Eid Mubarak to all our muslim fans and users!
New feature we're testing out →
Tips shared from Tipbox to Facebook now appear as actual tip cards on Facebook instead of just plain text. It automatically creates a new album for all of your tips, so people can easily browse them from one place.
A new home page
Getting some proper work done today (hopefully)!
machosx: Abdullah’s (@akay64) been facing so many distractions at home. For the past few weeks it’s been mostly me doing code. So today, we’re trying out a new strategy: working away from home. If this goes well we’re gonna stick to it and hopefully launch a good product soon. Stay tuned!
Sorry for the long gap of silence! It’s the end of the semester now, and we’ve got finals coming up. Juggling code and lecture notes. Work on #Tipbox is ongoing! It’s getting closer and closer to completion every day.
machosx: #Tipbox development is going really well! As of now, there are no bugs outstanding (Build 968). One major issue remains: Noticeable lag in the UIViewController transitions on some views. It’s supposedly because the view is too heavy (too much drawing). Still trying to figure out how to elegantly overcome this challenge. I abandoned the idea of rendering shadows using Core Graphics,...
Stuck with an e-mail address that only supports...
I have been a user of free e-mail services since as long as I can remember and I only managed my e-mail from the web interface so I had never really bothered to find out what POP3 and IMAP meant, you can find out a detailed explanation of the differences right here: http://www1.umn.edu/adcs/guides/email/imapvspop.html. It’s quite a brilliant article I must say. Anyway, if you came looking for this...
Scapehouse.com got a facelift. The star attraction: #Tipbox. Go ahead and leave your email if you haven’t already to get notified as soon as it’s out!
Wanna get one of those cool Twitter banners? That...
In case you guys are unaware, Twitter recently updated their user interface to the sleek #newtwitter. First of all getting the new interface has quite an awkward process; you have to download the official Twitter iOS or Android app and sign in with it. That will, after a couple of days, give your Twitter profile the new makeover. Oh well, at least it’s easier than getting the Facebook...
The Detour: Turning Scapehouse into a software...
We started Scapehouse as a hobby some 2 years ago, and it has been around for quite some time now. We had seen a pretty noticeable gap between open model networks like Twitter, and closed model networks like Facebook, so we decided to fill that gap with something because I had always wanted to use Twitter but never really understood it and had always wished to really post stuff openly on ...
