Well, Apple’s WWDC is right around the corner and that almost certainly means we’ll see iOS 8 and MacOS X 10.10 demoed. WWDC is sorta like nerd-Christmas in the Apple developer community. New features, new APIs, new tools to build great stuff. I can’t wait! I won’t be in San Francisco this year but I’m […]
iCloud storage with Core Data, introduced with iOS 5 in 2011, was deeply flawed. Those flaws continued with iOS 6 a year later but with the introduction of iOS 7 in June, things were looking up.

Wow, what a week. Apple introduced a ton of new technologies on Monday and I’m already starting to work with them in a few projects. I’m super excited to get building.
PromoLinker, a very simple app I created, is on the Mac App Store. PromoLinker takes the promo code files generated from iTunes Connect and turns them into clickable links that users can follow from their desktop or iOS devices to redeem. I got sick and tired of doing this by hand so PromoLinker was born. […]
