The future direction of Yoctoville
I've been writing apps for iOS since 2009 and it has been quite an adventure! Over the years I have released Errands, Alarmed, City Papers and Yocto Clock. While I write apps for a living, it is hearing they are truly useful that is the best reward, and I have received so much positive feedback. It truly means the world to me!
Unfortunately, some personal issues got in the way of my work and I am way behind on app updates. With the release of iOS 10, I was forced to make some hard decisions.
What this means is the following:
- Alarmed is actively being developed. There are some exciting new features in iOS 10 that I plan to take advantage of.
- Errands is currently in "suspended" mode. What I mean by this is that I have not given up on it, but am not actively developing it. The current version works well on iOS 10 with one major exception: the calendar display is VERY hard to read (but is readable if you look at it closely). I hope to get an update out prior to iOS 11's release this fall, but can not promise anything at this time. I will have more information on this page as we get closer to the release of iOS 11.
- City Papers and Yocto Alarm Clock are not being developed further at this time.
- Apple has indicated that it will not allow 32-bit apps to run on iOS 11, to be released in the fall of 2017. Alarmed is already 64-bit and is not subject to this restriction, however Errands, City Papers and Yocto Clock are 32-bit apps.
