2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 700 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 12 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

Gauntlet Icon

As you do while eating with your mates you have an idea for an app.

Gauntlet – send your friends a challenge.

Thought I could amend the following tut, instead of sending pics or videos that you have taken, send a pic of a Gauntlet and lay down the challenge.

Here is an Icon, WIP, I’m no designer so found the useful background from Vicki and sourced the glove elsewhere.

iOS App – Film Blog (Part 4)

So I need to test for an internet connection to make sure that I can download the JSON file with all the Film Reviews in it.

https://github.com/tonymillion/Reachability

http://iosameer.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/checking-internet-connection-in-ios-apps.html

Got it working using the last link, just as a quick test, will amend further.

Added Reachability.h/.m and added the SystemConfiguration.framework (this actually added to the correct folder!)

Reachability was made in 2010 so isn’t ARC complient.

Go to Targets -> Build Phases -> Compile Sources and add

-fno-objc-arc

Logo / Icon

I’m needing a logo/icon for my site.

I was thinking of using my initials ATH.

Do I use this overlayed like the below tweet or left to right, top to bottom, diagonally.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet”><p>RT <a href=”https://twitter.com/RaptorGL”>@RaptorGL</a&gt; Help me!! Which design can you read LZA better? Design 1 <a href=”https://t.co/ZtJKYE2Pf5″>pic.twitter.com/ZtJKYE2Pf5</a&gt; or Design 2 <a href=”https://t.co/Ku5dwSnnav”>pic.twitter.com/Ku5dwSnnav</a&gt; <a href=”https://twitter.com/search?q=%231GAM&amp;src=hash”>#1GAM</a>…</p>&mdash; One Game A Month (@OneGameAMonth) <a href=”https://twitter.com/OneGameAMonth/statuses/354404563199066112″>July 9, 2013</a></blockquote>

@RaptorGL Logo

Another thing I’d seen which was quite nice was the Great Gatsby logo.

I’m no artist as you can probably tell from my site!

Do I use one of those logo sites to get one made, don’t really need one but wouldn’t mind paying someone to do something I clearly can’t.

iOS App – Film Blog (Part 3)

 

So I’ve added a toolbar.

The Ratings/Cinema Images can be used in multiple Views.

There is now a Custom View to show my Review and then an option to go to the web too.
