My first iPhone app is live on the AppStore.
It may not be Angry Birds, but it is a quick and easy way to browse the Cannondale bike parts that Qwerty Cycles sell (www.qwertycycles.co.uk)
Have a look, give it a 5 start rating and good comment if you like
Well quite a lot has gone on with me since my 1st attempt to get an App published (the mighty torch).
Babies, house renovation and a much more work (boo!) meant it has been hard to find time. I’m still developing iPad Apps in my day job and lots of Air/Flash Apps and exhibition interactives.
My old friend/uni housemate/mtb buddy came to me and asked if i could make him an App to work alongside his website. He is the only online distributor of Cannondale spare parts, so an App that would allow users to quickly browse the huge catalogue of parts easily by model or category seemed ideal.
And a great chance for me to have a real project to get published on the AppStore.
Well it seems they have enough iphone torches on the store
I just wanted to get a simple app published
Good learning process though. I Shall have to try again!
“We’ve reviewed your application, however, we cannot post this version to the App Store because the features and/or content it provides were not found to be useful or entertaining enough”
After 6 days of waiting. The status has now changed to “In review”. Now I am getting he picture into how long it takes to get an app on the store.
Just hope it passes the review.
Excited now!!!! Status changed to “waiting for review”
I have written the most simple iphone app possible to get used to the methodology of publishing an app to iTunes app store
Wait for it (fanfare) it a….

I know there are thousands out Bb there, but coding wise and as an exercise in learning the submission process of getting an app live on the store, it’s perfect.
Every year I try to visit at least a couple of trade shows / expos and events to keep up with current technology and trends
This year i went to BETT (British Education and Training Technology)
BETT is the largest education technology exhibition in the world and offers you the opportunity to view, touch and test all that is new in the industry
Here are a few things that I found interesting.
Other day to day work has meant I have not spent any time on Kinect-getting-working-on-my-apps.
Plus my evenings spent starting to write an iphone app and get a simple one published to the AppStore.
Spare time is hard to find.
Will pick up again as soon as I can though.
Wading through the reams of info on how to get KINECT working on the PC
when you connect the KINECT via USB you get 3 unknown devices

- xBox NUI Camera
- xBox NUI Motor
