After updating my grid wallpaper for the new display of the iPhone 5, I'm glad to announce that an updated version of the Shelf wallpaper is now also available. However it's not just a larger version of the same old wallpaper… I also included three new flavors: washed out, dark and light. Hope you enjoy.
Btw you can find the original Shelf wallpaper right here.
Hey guys. I just updated my popular grid wallpaper for your brand new iPhone 5. Make sure you grab it while it's hot :)
What a week… just a couple of days ago two new apps, I had the honor to work on, were released: the official TouchArcade app and iTranslate Voice.
Since the first days of the App Store TouchArcade has been the website for people that are into iOS gaming. Now you can enjoy daily game news and reviews, or hang out with the community directly on your iPhone or iPod touch. I had a great time working on the app… kudos to the guys over at TouchArcade and Flexibits, who did an awesome job.
iTranslate has been one of the most popular translation apps since the very first days of the App Store. Now I had the honor to assist the guys from Sonico Mobile to bring it to an entirely new level with iTranslate Voice – Siri-inspired voice to voice translation for more than 30 languages. Simply talk to you iPhone, and immediately hear yourself in another… perfect if you quickly wanna look up words or start a conversation.
Nice… iTranslate Voice just hit #1 in the App Store. Take that Angry Birds :P
Yeah I know, there are already plenty of shelf wallpapers out there… and most of them are really good. However I'm kinda peculiar when it comes to wallpapers and exclusively use my own ones :) I liked how it turned out and thought you may enjoy it as well. So here you go…
You can find an updated version for the iPhone 5 right here.
I recently played around in Photoshop and came up with a combination of colors and shapes I really liked. So here is the brand new "Flux" wallpaper set for your iPhone and iPod touch. Enjoy!
The package contains three different flavors of the wallpaper. However feel free to recolor them to your heart’s content.
I'm excited to announce that the free version of Dashball has just been approved by Apple and is now available at the App Store. The free version comes with the same improved accelerometer controls as the recently released Dashball 1.1 update.
Good things come to those who wait. I'm proud to announce that the highly anticipated iPhone game "Dashball" finally made it to the App Store. Grab your copy and be one of the first to enjoy the smashing breakout puzzle fun.
To start with I’d like to thank you for all your feedback and suggestions on Dashball and the recently released Dashball wallpaper set. Also kudos to the many beta testers who did an amazing job. And last but not least thanks to my wife and friends for their patience and support over the last couple of months :)
So what is the game about? Well personally I’d define it as action puzzle game where the goal is to destroy all the colored blocks by controlling a bouncing ball. Each of the 25 levels contains three kinds of blocks:
- blocks that can be destroyed
- blocks that can be moved
- and blocks that change the color of the ball.
There is also a fourth kind of block that you will learn to dread: the red skull block. Avoid this one at all costs! Since you can only smash or move blocks of the same color as the ball, you have to choose wisely in which order you smash, move and change colors.
You’re in control
Dashball is designed for casual gaming and therefore is easy to control. Just tap the screen on the left or right side to move the ball one step left or right. Tap+hold to move the ball continuously. And for even more challenging game play we’ve also implemented accelerometer support: Just tilt your iPhone left or right to move the ball in the desired direction.
What’s the point of owning an iPod if you can’t listen to music? Well, Dashball certainly won’t stop you. Just start the music track before you launch the game. Nice huh? But enough talking, let’s get the ball rolling…
Dashball 1.1 is now available. Besides several bug fixes we significantly improved the accelerometer controls. Make sure you grab the new version!
Was kinda quiet here over the last couple of months, right? Well that was mainly because I was working on some really interesting projects — mainly iPhone apps — that kept me from publishing new stuff. And there is one more thing…
tap tap tap
One of the most exciting projects was - and still is - working with Sophia and John from tap tap tap on their amazing iPhone apps such as Where To?, Tipulator or Groceries. If you haven’t already, make sure you check em out.
Furthermore I assisted my friends Michael and Till from Mindmeister with preparing the next big release of their collaborative online mind mapping tool. I’ve seen the preview and I can tell there are some really exciting new features to be announced :)
One more thing
But there is one more thing I’d like to talk about: a secret project I’ve been working on over the last couple of months. Hm… it’s actually not a secret anymore, since I’ve already posted some teasers on my flickr stream, right? Well so I guess it’s okay to officially let you know that I’ve been working on a new iPhone game. It’s currently being reviewed by Apple and I’m confident that it will be ready to hit the App Store sometime next week. So stay tuned…
Make sure you also check out the official Dashball wallpaper set.
