Nostalgia – Rename Your Photos

I have a problem. Half of my photos come from my iPhone (via the Dropbox uploader), which creates filenames based on the date they were taken. But all the photos from my awesome DSLR are named BLAHBLAH_7001.jpg and BLAHBLAH_7002.jpg. That annoys me. I want all of my filenames to be date based so I can […]

Setting Up NSOutlineView Drag and Drop with Core Data in Cocoa

Last week, I finally got around to building the number-one VirtualHostX feature request – groups/folders in the sidebar. I had put off implementing this feature for years because I never knew quite where to start when it came to Core Data and NSOutlineView.

Last week I released a minor update to VirtualHostX. Shortly thereafter, my inbox was flooded with reports of an “unsupported architecture” error on launch.

Sosumi for Mac – Find Your iPhone From Your Deskop

Every holiday, between the food and family, I always seem to find time for a quick project. Last year I built the first version of Nottingham over the Thanksgiving break. This year was no exception, and I found myself putting the final touches on Sosumi for Mac after an eighteen hour coding streak this weekend. […]

OpenFeedback Part Deux

A year and a half ago I wrote about OpenFeedback, an open source Cocoa framework for gathering feedback from your users. Initially, it was a sister project to Appcaster, my indie dashboard web app. Since then, Appcaster has grown up and morphed into Shine, but OpenFeedback remained unchanged. Tonight, though, I took a few hours […]

Introducing Appcaster + OpenFeedback

Today I’m proud to announce the release of two new open source projects: Appcaster and OpenFeedback. I’ve been working on them off and on for over nine months, so I’m very excited to finally see them out the door. Appcaster, which I’ve written about before, is a web-based dashboard for indie Mac developers. It’s designed […]
