Spendigo the holiday expense tracker app

Spendigo icon

I’m pleased to announce that my friend Torsten’s first app, Spendigo has just been released in the App Store. Apart from a serious amount of beta testing, I’ve also supplied the icon and splash screen.

Spendigo keeps track of your holiday spending so that when you get back you can find out where all your money went – in fact the app was called Where Did It Go? during development:)

It’s simple to add an expense, assign a category and get on with your day. The app handles currency conversions, different views of your spends and running totals (don’t worry, you can switch the running total off if you’d rather not know how much you’re spending until you get home).

A lot of love and hard work has gone into this app and if you’re looking for a way to track your holiday expenses then you really should take a look: click here for App Store link

MoodClock for the iPad & iPhone

My new iPad app, MoodClock has just hit the Apple Store.

As you can probably guess from the name it’s a combination clock and mood lamp. It doesn’t do much but what it does do, it does beautifully (well so I’d like to think). You can choose your favourite background colour (any colour you can think of) or just let it fade from one to another and you can choose black or white text and then adjust the transparency of it with a swipe of your finger.

As you can see, you can achieve an almost infinite number of effects, even turning off the time completely to use the iPad as a mood lamp – it’s surprisingly effective when turned against the wall in a darkened room – just like an expensive mood light in fact :) Continue reading

Siri for iPhone 4S – so much more than just voice recognition

Yesterday’s big Apple event was a bit of a let down from many points of view but the one thing that struck me was Siri. If you’re not up to speed yet on what this personal assistant on your phone can do, watch the clip below to get a better idea of what it’s capable of.

If it works half as well as it looks like it does (and some of the first hands-on feedback I’ve seen suggests that it does) it could be the biggest thing to hit the way we interact with our computers since the touchscreen.

Saving Grace – Travel Packing Aid for your iPhone

Saving Grace, the latest app that I’ve been involved, is available in the App Store as on today – and the best news is it’s FREE.

Saving Grace by Grace Hotels is a packing check list and reminder tool all in one. Designed to cut the stress of packing.

The app has pre-set lists for different trip types – winter, summer, activity holiday or a short break. Activities include specific lists for surfing, cycling, golf, diving, fishing, camping etc.

DeskClock 2011 update

After much delay, I’m pleased to announce that the latest version of DeskClock has just gone live in the App Store.

It finally features the full screen year view calendar for 2011. Thanks to everybody for their patience while we got to the bottom of this one – I won’t go into the exact details behind the delay, but suffice to say it was due to circumstances beyond our control, not that we just couldn’t be bothered.

Anyway, as you can see above, the app features a handy year-at-a-glance calendar as well as the standard clock and month view…

If you haven’t already got a copy, then now’s as good a time as any – get it here

Apple’s iPhone 4 finally arrives in white

After nearly a year of waiting, the iPhone 4 is finally available in white.

The amount of excitement I’ve seen online suggests this is a bigger deal than you might think…

I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this IS the next iPhone

Pictures of this iPhone are doing the rounds today and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this pretty much what Apple are going to unveil sometime soon…

Of course, I could be wrong…

I’ve just updated my online portfolio to include a selection of App icons I’ve created over the last couple of years.

Is this a leaked video of iPhone iOS 5?

This video has been doing the rounds today. It looks feasible enough and quite an interesting way to handle multitasking on the iPhone.

What do you think – real or fake?
