Finally . Apologies to our users that have been waiting a long time for Tab Bar Controllers. But, they are now available! I’ll try to get out a video tutorial on how to use them out today.
But that’s not all, I’ve also expanded the way table views work. No more duplicate rows for each section. You’ll also find that you can now set individual images and other settings for each cell.
Something else that should have been in there a long time ago is transparent images. Yep, you can now use transparent images . Just drop in your image files via iTunes file sharing and away you go. Dapp supports either jpg or png image files.
I’ve also included a new Dapp backup option that you can find in the ‘settings’. Backup Dapp as often as you like. You can then access your backup via iTunes file sharing and save it in a safe location. This will especially be great news for users that have a new iPad or iPhone and need to shift Dapp to a new device.
I’ve also gone through and added some more helpful info for various properties that should make things easier to understand. That and various minor tweaks.
I’d just like to say thank you to the testers that helped out to make this update of Dapp bug free… and of course, to all of our wonderful users that have provided feedback (not always positive , which is cool) and supported Dapp.
Also, each new update resets the reviews for Dapp . So I’d be soooo grateful if you could leave a quick rating or review of Dapp. The link is below, and it should only take up a few seconds of your time . Thank you!
I’m currently in the process of updating the Dapp and Manage websites to provide much more information on what’s going on. Also to allow you guys to participate more and tell me what you want to see in Dapp! Well, apart from an iPad version, that I’ve been flooded with requests for. I’ll make sure to keep you guys up to date on how that’s going too.To your app success!,
Chugging along with the patches, this update corrects an issue where actions were not being copied when cloning an existing project/design.
I’m still full time with other projects but hope to continue releasing small updates and patches to Dapp whenever possible.To your app success!,
I’ve finally managed to get my hands on an iPhone 4. Blame our lack of supply in Australia . I was also happy to wait as I felt that the iPhone simulator would allow me to handle testing and debugging for iPhone 4 devices.
Of course, Murphy’s law stepped in and created a bug that only affected physical iPhone 4 devices with the latest iOS. From what I have gathered so far, the issue is that any ‘switch’ (boolean) settings are not being saved when a change is made. Now that I have an iPhone 4, I’ve been able to reproduce the issue and can submit a patch to Apple as soon as possible.
I’ll add a new post when the patch is submitted to Apple. Thank you to everyone for your patience.To your app success!,
We have recently created some documentation for Dapp which can be downloaded from http://dapp.kerofrog.com.au/DappDocumentation.pdf
It has been created as a PDF document with clickable links in the contents section to easily jump to any location. It is fairly comprehensive and should hopefully help people having difficulty in navigating the Dapp UI.
Note: The PDF documentation has a display issue on Mac OS X (Safari?) computers where the headings in the contents section have borders placed around them. We will update this as soon as we find the reason for the issue.To your app success!,
Just found an issue when trying to run Dapp on iPhone devices running OS 3.1.3 and earlier. Thank you to the user that reported the bug.
To our fellow developers out there, conditional statements on running OS 4.0 specific code is probably a good idea .
This patch is now in review with Apple.To your app success!,
Dapp version 1.1 is now available. The full list of changes are:
- Added Push, Pop, Alert View and Action Sheet actions for Toolbar, Table View and Button objects
- Guide-lines added to assist with positioning objects in view mode
- Application setting added to switch guide-lines on or off
- Movement handle added to assist with placement of objects
- Added logging for any database related errors that occur to find cause of isolated bugs
- Fixed bug where devices without camera will crash when selecting camera option
- Users can now enter blank button names
- On first use when opening view mode, users are now given a tip showing them how to open the view mode controls
This update addresses issues users have been having running Dapp on pre-release iPhone OS Versions.
What else is new in Version 1.0.1
- View controllers will now have their background property set correctly when exporting to code
- Fixed bug when trying to export a design with no pages
Thought some developers might like to know how I solved this problem. Our particular scenario is as follows:
- Installed Xcode 3.2.3 OS 4.0 Beta 4 over the top of Xcode 3.2.2 (mistake)
- Reinstalled Xcode 3.2.2 over the top of Xcode 3.2.3 OS 4.0 Beta 4
- Installed Xcode 3.2.3 OS 4.0 Beta 4 in a seperate directory
- Opened Dapp project using Xcode 3.2.3 Beta to fix bug (mistake)
- Opened project in Xcode 3.2.2 to build for distribution and had constant code-sign errors
Closest way to explain it would be that it seems like by opening and editing/saving/building the project in Xcode 3.2.3, changes were made to the project structure which is what caused the code-sign errors. This could have been avoided if i had just copied the project and worked in Xcode 3.2.3 using a seperate copy.
- Create a new project in Xcode 3.2.2
- Copy over all project code files and resources
- Link up everything (basically make sure everything is the same as the original)
- Distribute! No code-sign error.
Our crack team of testers missed a code export bug where the View Controller background color is not being set. This has been corrected in version 1.0.1
which has been submitted to the app store for review.
Update: The 1.0.1 release has been pulled back to add support for OS 4.0 Beta iPhones and to fix a bug when attempting to export to code a design with no pages. I really need to let go the tester responsible for letting that slip.
Update 2: Found the issue. I’ve done testing and Dapp is now stable in OS 4.0. I’ll be submitting the update as a ‘crash-fix’ to Apple with an urgent priority.
Update 3: Completed and submitted to Apple. I’ve also requested priority due to OS 4.0 users experiencing crashes. Had some annoying delays due to code signing issues, feel free to read the next post for details.
The next version of Dapp will have action support. Allowing you to setup objects to react to user events, such as a button being pressed or a tableview row being selected. A full summary of the 1.0.2 release shall be posted in the next few days.
During this time, feel free to contact us with what you would like to see in Dapp. We are here to provide a service to the developer community, and all feedback is appreciated.
