Alex Kac, CEO/Founder of WebIS yesterday announced that Apple had approved their major new version 3 of Pocket Informant. We like to highlight satisfied clients who put our components to good use, Pocket Informant 3 uses DTRichTextEditor.
This weeks update to AutoIngest for Mac (a comunity-driven Mac status bar app for downloading sales reports) brings support for downloading from multiple vendor identifiers.
Your vendor identifier is an 8-digit number beginning with an 8. Usually you have only one, but if you – for example – move from an Individual to a Company Apple developer account, then your old ID is retired and you get a new one. There might be also other scenarios for people having multiple, now AutoIngest for Mac supports that.
I have two vendor IDs, one from my time as Individual and the newer one since I changed to a Company developer account. There might be other other reasons for having multiple vendor IDs, if you know of any, please let me know. I’m curious.
Now for this week’s update to AutoIngest for Mac I wanted to turn the plain text Vendor ID field into a token field like the Mac mail app has. Fortunately NSTokenField exists on Mac since 10.4 and today we shall explore its use.
If you always wanted to crash your MobileSafari and didn’t dare to ask, here’s a current way to do it. If you zoom into the right place on our Linguan app product page iOS terminates the app. Thanks to Oisin Prendiville for sending this in.
Of course I had to immediately file a bug report. It is slightly bit hilarious that Mobile Safari would crash on my own site. Looks like it’s somehow running out of “rpages”, whatever that means.

The Reachability sample is arguable the one piece of Apple sample code that is seen in most wide use. But it is just that: a sample.
It was lacking in some regards and so a plethora of variants popped up, all with varying version numbers. But all these version numbers do is to mask the fact that these are not “official” versions of sanctioned Apple code.
Yet another problem is that people needed to start prefixing their versions of Reachability as to avoid conflicts with other people’s Reachability contained in other components.
This is the forth release of our handy little status bar app for downloading iTunes Connect reports to your hard disk.
I want to specifically highlight the new option to have your downloaded reports be automatically organized into folders for you, thanks to Felipe Cypriano.
Jan Weiß and Christian Pfandler collaborated on the new golden Apple Icon. The idea behind this – besides the reference to Apple, Inc. – is that apps are your golden Apples and this app is good for you because it lets you take a bite of this value.
I scoured through the Cocoanetics blog for all the individual ZIP files of sample apps that I had made to accompany some of my Apple bug reports.
Today we are releasing the 1.5 version of our rich text components. This marks the second unified release where several parts of our rich text eco system are maturing in lock-step.
For the most part these improvements and enhancements were funded from exceptional sales of DTRichTextEditor as well as several sponsors who stepped forward to allow me to finally get support for lists implemented.
From what I can tell the clients who licensed the editor are way more willing to contribute funds to something they have already paid for, than for enhancing the – otherwise free with attribution – DTCoreText.
