Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year

I'm currently snowed into my house with my husband and kids and a mountain of Christmas leftovers. I have once more failed to burn the house down with the flaming pudding.

Eventually I will come out of my turkey coma and get back to work.

If you are one of the lucky folks with a new iPod or iPad under the tree and have populated it with a copy of sockCalc - welcome aboard! Stay tuned here for news of what is coming next. If it doesn't do what you need, I'm susceptible to requests from my charming users.

1.4 is out!

The update was approved and released on Thursday. If you are on Ravelry, you may see a new sockCalc banner add announcing the new version.

I will now put my virtual feet up (they are cozily dressed in handknit socks) and rest a bit over the holidays.

Improvements I've currently got on my list to work on are an option for metric measurements, and an option for different leg lengths. Comment here to vote for which should be next.

coming in version 1.4

1.4 isn't yet completed, but getting very close - I'm planning to be done in time to clear review by Christmas. Sockly prezzies under your tree will be:

Toe up instructions - you asked for it, I'm working on it. The feature is pretty much done - I'm knitting the test sock so I can be sure I got it right.

Better access to support - the info pages will include buttons to send email to if your ipod or iphone has mail configured. There will also be a button to view the support page of the website.

From the website you can download the sockCalc manual in pdf or epub format - and, you don't have to wait for this one, it is there now!

1.3 update coming - cool new features!

I've uploaded version 1.3, it is waiting for review to get posted to the App Store.

Look for a brand new button on the top left of the Browse view - it is the 'Item Action' button and it pops up a list of things you can do. To start there will be up to two options - Email and Print

Email will let you send your sockCalc generated instructions to yourself or friends, straight from the app. Instructions will be attached to the email as an html file - you can save the file to your computer and do what you like with it.

Print will only be available with IOS 4.2 - if you don't update your device to that version the button won't appear. With 4.2 you will be able to print wirelessly directly to printers that support Airprint. See the Apple site for more details on supported printers.

SockCalc 1.1 is on the way

It is packaged up and on line for review, with luck the update will be released the first week in October. With less luck, it might take another week or two.

next steps

Lest you think I'm sitting back and relaxing now that sockCalc is published, I'll tip you off on the update that is in progress.

Version 1.1 will support the iPad. It will be a universal binary, so you can buy it just once and run on both your iPhone/iPod touch and your iPad - it will behave differently to suit the device it is on.

Landscape mode is coming - I know the instructions will be easier to read with the extra width.

And, we're live!


Now that sockCalc has finally gone out into the world, I can start working on the first update.

I've got a short list of features that didn't quite make the cut for version 1, support for landscape mode is the first thing on it. Leave a comment if there is anything you'd like to see sockCalc do in the future.
