Updates on my major new iOS project!

Hey, everyone! As April comes to a close, I think now is a good time to update all of you on the latest news regarding my major new iOS project I announced a few weeks ago. So, here's what's new presented in glorious Q&A format!

Overall, how's the project going?
At this point, pretty well! There's still a lot left to do, but I've made some serious progress these last few weeks.

Will this app be free?
Yes, but there will probably be an in-app purchase to unlock some extra features.

When will it be ready for release?
It's hard to say. However, I do think it will probably be at least June when I release it, though it could also be as late as July.

Will Palm Month (May 2021) interfere with its development?
Not in a major way, hopefully. I'm not sure I'll be able to do quite as much this Palm Month as I did last year, but that's because I want to spend a fairly substantial amount of time working on this new iOS app in May, too. I'm hoping that I'll be able to have a nice balance between Palm and iOS development that will allow me to do a decent amount of both.

Is this app a completely new project?
No. I've already made an Android version of it, but the iOS counterpart I'm working on will likely have some UI differences and advantages over that Android version.

Should I be excited for this new iOS app?
Definitely. It will be a little while longer until it is ready, but I'll be working hard in that time to make it the best it can realistically be!

Anyway, those are the answers to a few questions I'm guessing some of you might have been wondering about. There's still a lot left to do, but I'm hopeful that this new iOS app will launch in the not-too-distant future. Until then, stay tuned for more updates!

Late 2014 Mac mini in 2021 - How does it hold up?

Nearly two months ago, I finally got my first Mac: a late 2014 Mac mini. While I usually don't review stuff on this blog, I thought I would make an exception for this device. My hope is that this review will be helpful and fairly unbiased while helping you make a decision on whether or not to get one of these Macs. So, how does this miniature Macintosh hold up today? Design The Mac mini's design has largely remained unchanged over the last decade. There have been a few small updates and tweaks to it, but nothing particularly major. This means that the 2014 Mac mini features the usual premium and minimal aluminum casing with a white status LED on the front. Overall, I'd say this Mac mini's design has held up pretty well! It's very small, being only 8 inches wide and long, while only having a height of 1.4 inches. It weighs a little over 2.5 pounds, so it's not too heavy, either. These dimensions make for a very nice and compact computer, and I think it fits in wi

3 years, 2 iOS apps, and a new site

In March of 2018, I wrote my first Tectra program. It was a basic web browser called Satin Web, and it was the first thing I made with C# and Windows Forms. It is now March 2021, three years later, and I am very excited to announce that the next chapter for Tectra is here. After hours of work, I have finally completed my first two iOS apps and have created a new site from scratch to go along with them. There is a lot to cover, so let's begin! iOS Apps TaskNudge TaskNudge is the first of my two iOS apps. It's pretty simple but very handy! Essentially, it lets you write a single, short-term task and get notified to complete it every 1-60 minutes, depending on what you choose. If you are easily distracted when you use your devices, have trouble remembering to do things, or need a bit of a nudge to get something done, TaskNudge might just be the app for you! Best of all, TaskNudge is very simple and easy to use, while being more useful than something like a timer or alarm. Once you

I made a custom iPod. Should you?

I made a custom iPod. Should you? The goal of this post is to share my experience modding this retro audio player and help you decide if you should attempt this project, too. While this isn't the sort of thing I usually write about on this blog, my hope is that this post will be helpful to those interested in building a custom iPod. So, without further ado, let's begin! The Backstory With the rise of DankPods , modding iPods has quickly become quite popular among retro tech enthusiasts. As someone who had been using iPods for several years prior to their resurgence in popularity, I was intrigued by the idea of making my own custom iPod. This was especially true since I had a broken iPod Video that I could easily mod. Then, something completely unexpected happened: the pandemic. I quickly realized that this would be a great project to work on during the lockdown. As a result, within days of everything shutting down, I had ordered all my replacement parts and prepared
