Re: Where has the iOS Wish List Gone?

Wait. Did I read that right? Scriv in the top 30 big boys on app store? You can see the Top 200 apps on the AppShopper.com website. http://appshopper.com/mac/bestsellers/gros/?device= is probably the best way to look. This list is a highly-useful way to find third-party utilities. It's noteworthy t...

Re: iOS Update

Just expressing my doubts as to Text Kit being quite the holy grail some have made it out to be and that getting acceptable performance out of it might add to dev time in this instance. I wanted to place this in a bit of context. Pages and Numbers for iOS have been out since January, 2010; both of ...

Re: iOS Update

Thanks, Keith. Your timing for Scrivener on iOS seems to be perfect. Like many, I'm rather amused with how the developer community handles the NDA. The rule seems to be that nobody talk about things -- until someone else talks about them in a public article. But aren't those writers violating their ...

Re: iOS Update

[quote="KB"]I have to say that iOS 7 adds some *very* exciting features that is going to make it a lot easier to provide a great text editor in Scrivener for iOS... I can't wait until our iOS developer gets back from WWDC so that we can discuss it.[/quote] A good chunk of the excitement is...

Re: The Crashers for Copies (or Even Cash!) Thread

I pulled the comment from the other thread just after posting it here. It occurred to me that you might have some unexplained crash reports in your logs about this problem; I thought it was worthy of reporting. Besides, I always wanted bragging rights: to be able to say that I once crashed Scrivener...

Re: The Crashers for Copies (or Even Cash!) Thread

I posted this in you announcement thread before reading the rules: On Mac OS X Mountain Lion: 1. Open a new document. 2. Enter the text File:// 3. Scrivener will crash. Several notes: 1. Please close any live documents before attempting to reproduce this. 2. You actually need three slashes, and ther...

Re: Which Macbook?

So if you're really concerned about upgradability, special order one with 8GB RAM, and worry about the hard drive space in two or three years. If you're somewhat handy, you'll be able to swap out your then-old SSD for something truly massive by today's standards. Bookmark http://eshop.macsales.com/...

A first view of what it looks like ... :-) Can I be the first to say "Awesome" ... a horrible word which I hate, but I thought we'd do well to get it out of the way. It looks as if it'll be thoroughly obvious for anyone using the Mac version to instantly start viewing and editing document...

Re: MacHeist Bundle

Giovanni, this is a strong bundle and a tremendous bargain at $29. The obvious solution is to have your friend buy his own MacHeist bundle. Carpe diem -- you've got four diems left on this deal.

Game Developer Flashcards

I just ran across Cliff Bleszinski's Game Developer Flashcards blog post ( http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/175586/cliff_bleszinskis_game_developer_.php ). Cliff notes the egotistical ways that game developers interact with each other: I've learned that while developers are incredibly intellige...

I'm certain you and most developers keep up on this discussion. I was also putting it here as a note for other enthusiasts. Apple owes a lot to you third-party developers. The Panic Software story makes it clear that Apple understands that, too.

Re: OS X 10.8: Functional Split between MAS and direct-sale apps

This article from Panic Software (a fine third-party Apple developer) is a fine description of Gatekeeper, a means of enhancing the security of OS X Mountain Lion. The developer also mentions a private briefing that they had with Apple -- showing Apple's commitment to third-party developers. Finall...

OS X 10.8: Functional Split between MAS and direct-sale apps

Apple has been doing one-on-one previews of OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) with journalists. This article is John Gruber's writeup of his presentation. It's a fascinating report! Gruber notes: I’m interested to see how developer support for Mac App Store-only features plays out. Two big ones: iCloud docu...

One FYI: Jean MacDonald of Smile Software (creator of PDFPen) appears on this week's version of MacBreak weekly. It was interesting because Smile also advertises on that podcast. Leo also had Oliver Breidenbach of Boinx software on the show. Both PDFPen and Oliver's iStopMotion won best in show and ...

Re: My App Store Review

Much appreciated, and thank you for taking the time to go into detail for potential purchasers, too - such reviews are especially helpful now that Apple has made us take the mention of the free trial version out of our App Store description. The phrase "information age" is a shortened ver...
