PRI app

Our latest app, made for "Public Radio International (PRI) is now available in the iTunes app store here.

NOTE: this is published under PRI's developer account, but you'll see Stormy Production credits on the "info" screen of the app. PRI provided all the artwork. Stormy Productions just did all the programming.

When is an error not an error?

I got this funny message today when trying to log onto Apple's web site for managing iPhone apps.

Gotta love this method of handling errors. If we deny it happened, it's not a problem, right?

MPVolumeView Demo Project

Several people have asked for clarification on using the MPVolumeView, so I've put together a full XCode demo project to show off its usage and features.

Note: In order for the slider to respond to the volume buttons, you need to be playing audio. Otherwise you won't see anything happen.

Here's a link to the project: MPVolumeView Demo.

I included some extra features in the code I hadn't mentioned previously, such as how to change the color of portions of the slider, add icons for "soft" and "loud" ends of the slider, etc.

If you don't know what the MPVolumeView class is, please refer to my earlier blog entry.
