We rely on the ability to promote our games for our livelihood and control over pricing is an important tool for this purpose.
Because We May is doing something very incredible here. They are a website to help you promote …
RightSprite meet Android
Uhh, not that kind.
Yes! That one! The kind that Google makes.
Here at RightSprite we love new technology. Most of us here were early adopters of Ruby on Rails and jumped on the iPhone SDK as soon as we could.
Here we go again. Google’s new mobile platform is expanding our playground even further!
Check back for updates and an all new RightSprite Android App.

Hey iCoders. As I posted earlier I recently made an iPad app called TweetMapper. I just put out a new release of the app with a big new feature. The app now has a scrolling timeline of the tweets it is seeing as they come in. In order to make this app I took advantage of the Twitter Stream API that is provided by twitter. This API creates a persistent connection between the Twitter servers and your application. We will essentially start a stream of incoming NSData object to an NSURLConnection that you create querying the stream. We will look into the different search parameters which can be passed into the request, the way in which our code responds to authentication requests from Twitter, and the logic we must use to ensure that the data we have received is a complete XML element and not chopped off.
So, why would you want to integrate Google Analytics into your iPhone application. Duh, for the same reasons you would integrate it into your site. Google has extended their killer analytics platform to include mobile devices including the iPhone and Android devices.
The analytics API gives you some very powerful options to get as nitty gritty as you would like in your application tracking.
iPhone OS 4.0 Predictions
Wow, April is a big month for Apple. iPad release on the 3rd, probably laptop debuts later this month, and iPhone 4.0 announcement coming up on the 8th. Lots to cover. In the spirit of iCodeBlog I present to you a list of stuff to look for in iPhone OS 4.0.
This year I was lucky enough to go to CES in beautiful Las Vegas. While I’m sure you all know, CES is the Consumer Electronics Show, and it is one of the largest trade shows in the world. Everyone who is anyone is at this show (except Apple), and it has historically been a place for companies to reveal big new products. Microsoft in 2008 released the Surface and last year Palm released the …
Cocoa Development in 2010
2009 will be known as the year the world learned the word app. With the first full calendar year of the app store coming to a close it is amazing to look back and see the growth that has occurred in this market. There are about 100,000 applications now available in the app store, give or take, with more being added every day. While this might seem like a bad thing to the average developer, there seems to be …
Where for art thou daemons?
In short, they’re in Android, not the iPhone.
This is a common frustration to iPhone application developers and product visionaries. You can’t run applications in the background. Think of all the features un-implemented due to this colossal disclusion.
Granted, there’s a reason Apple chose to omit this from their SDK. Lucky for me and you, Android chose to pay special attention to it. What we would call “daemons” on a standard operating system, …
