Introducing Violoncello for iOS!

Hey, everyone! As many of you probably know, Violoncello has quickly become one of my most important projects in recent times. In the last several months, the Android version of it has grown exponentially, and it has reached the point of being my most successful app yet. As a result, a few months ago, I decided that it was time to make an iOS version of it. So that’s what I did!

Violoncello for iOS is largely the same as its Android counterpart, as it is still a text-only web browser. This means that a lot could be ported over from the Android version to its iOS counterpart, so they do share many features. That being said, there are still some notable UI and feature differences. The iOS version lacks some of the newer features of the Android version like finding text and printing pages, but it does offer some new ones like a more intuitive bookmark manager. It is also important to mention the iOS version still has plenty of customization options, and some of them can be unlocked by upgrading to Violoncello Premium. This small in-app purchase was first introduced with the launch of Violoncello for Android, and it serves as a way for people to support my work and get some fun extra features in the process. To summarize, while they do have some differences, the two mobile versions of Violoncello do also have a lot in common.

Overall, I’m very pleased with how Violoncello for iOS has turned out! As of now, it’s only available for download here in the United States, but I do hope to start rolling it out around the world in the not-too-distant future.

Anyway, if you want to try out Violoncello for iOS, you can find it on the App Store. As always, thank you so much for reading, and enjoy!

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 remained largely 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

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

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
