Innovative iPhone apps by Paul Gee


HotUKDealer v2.03 released

Just quick announcement that a new version of HotUKDealer is available for download. This release includes a few bug fixes plus landscape mode is now supported on the iPhone and iPod Touch.



find-BOOK & find-CD on hold

We had to pull find-CD & find-BOOk from the App Store due to a problem with displaying the results of a search which caused the app to crash.

The version submitted to the App Store should never have work but somehow Apple released it. A new working version is being reviewed and will be released soon.

Apologies for the confusion and disappointment.



HotUKDealer v2.01

The next version of HotUKDealer is waiting in queue at Apple to be reviewed and released.

This is a bug fix release, that corrects some issues with refreshing but more importantly allows the updating of categories and forums. This is quite important as the HotUKDeals site of late has been adding and removing categories overnight. For a lot of apps this causes them to stop working properly. From v2.01 onwards I’ll be able to modify the categories remotely, ensuring the HotUKDealer keeps working.

I’ve also added back and forward buttons for the built-in web browser for easy navigation.



find-BOOK & find-CD

Just a quick update to say both find-BOOK and find-CD apps are now in review with Apple, so should be released within the next week.

Meanwhile I’m working on a quick update of HotUKDealer to fix some bugs which have become apparent and also allow the dynamic updating of the forums and categories, so I can map changes on the HotUKDeals website quicker.

HotUKDealer in Review

HotUKDealer is in review with Apple.

I’ve updated the website, so you can now take a sneak preview of the iPhone and iPad screens.

In addition to the ability to search for DVDs and Games, I’ve added books and CDs as well. All the major retailers are compared on price and these are listed on the
HotUKDealer web page.

HotUKDeals Finished!

At long last the new version of HotUKDeals RSS or HotUKDealer as it will be renamed, is functionally complete.

This has been a major rewrite. The new version combines support for both iPhone and iPad platforms, all the new categories and forums from the HotUKDeals website, built in DVD and Game search engine, social networking support including twitter and facebook and a major improvement in speed and user interface design, including retina display graphics.

It will be submitted for review to Apple tomorrow and then should be available in a week or so time. It will be an free upgrade for existing customers.

I’ll post screenshots soon.....
