Drobnik KG and FOKUS KIND Medien, Austria – We are announcing that effective June 1st FOKUS KIND Medien has acquired the iWoman iOS property.
iWoman is a simple and intuitive app for women to keep track on their menstrual cycle. In-app purchases add the ability to keep track of sexual intercourse, daily basal temperature measurements and to have the data passcode protected. iWoman was the first app Drobnik had published on the app store in late 2008.
Here’s a press release I’ve been working on. Awesome announcements from our startup ProductLayer!
My last 15 months had a common theme: barcodes. At this point all my research, coding and writing is finally allowed to move into the public sphere, plainly visible for all who care. And incredibly interesting for those who don’t just yet.
We are happy to announce that my book Barcodes with iOS is out now. The final PDF edition arrived January 21st in the inboxes of people who had pre-ordered via the Manning Early Access Program (MEAP).
Update Jan 28th: Received my author copies. Added photo and unboxing video below.

Until today, whenever you would post something to a social network, this information would drown in the flood of other people’s posts. There was no way of finding other people’s opinions about physical products, except perhaps Amazon product reviews. But wouldn’t you trust more your friend’s opinions than those of complete strangers?
I extracted all E-Mail addresses from my archive, dating back almost 6 years. From the resulting 7303 I filtered all that didn’t seem to address individual people. That left 5466.
For a while I considered sending an email to all of these via Mailchimp. I even wrote the letter below, in English because I figured that most people would understand that. But then I decided against sending a mass e-mail, fearing that it would cause me more trouble than positive outcomes.
Instead I’m posting it on my blogs. Much less of a nuisance …
