Your Move for iPad has been updated.

This version now adds support for Spanish, and has been updated for compliance with iOS 7.0. Additionally, the UI has been flattened and tweaked to complaints from some users regarding visibility of previously played pieces.

Felix & Felix Free, now in iTunes

A while back I had to decide between several cars and I was trying to figure out which one would save me the most money. When you’re comparing different cars, it’s not just about the monthly payment, you also have to factor in fuel efficiency, cost to insure, and so on.

One of the situations I ran into was that the car I was looking at was available in two configurations (VW gas vs. TDI), and the one with better gas mileage cost more (and used diesel, which is more expensive in my area). In my case it turned out that I didn’t drive enough per year to recoup the cost for the more efficient engine and the more expensive fuel.

It seemed to me that there should be an app to help people figure out this type of thing, but it turns out that there isn’t. (Or if there is, I couldn’t find it). I decided to make an iOS app to help other save money. It’s now in iTunes, and it’s called Felix the Fuel Cost Calculator.

The way Felix works is you enter how much you drive, and what fuel costs in your area. Then you start entering the cars that you are trying to decide between – entering monthly payment, fuel efficiency and insurance cost. If it’s a car you own that’s paid for, you can enter your average monthly maintenance. As you enter your cars, the program will calculate your monthly costs and allow you to see which car will save you the most money.

There are two versions in iTunes, one 0.99 and the other is free with ads.

Arbor Day Foundation’s What Tree Is That? – Update

what happens if I have @synthesize but implemented half of the getter/setter pairs in code ?

[02:34am] red82: what happens if I have @synthesize but implemented half of the getter/setter pairs in code ?
[02:34am] jweinberg: the other one is generated
[02:34am] jweinberg: also that is only valid for nonatomic properties
[02:34am] jweinberg: if you are using an atomic property, you have to let it create both, or you override both

Why is block based enumeration good?

[02:29am] red82: why is block based enumeration good ?
[02:32am] Eridius: red82: it’s as fast as, or faster, than other enumeration
[02:32am] Eridius: red82: and it makes it trivial to do things like reverse enumeration, or concurrent enumeration
[02:32am] red82: how can it be faster, isn’t there a context switch ?
[02:33am] Eridius: there’s a function call..
[02:33am] Eridius: NSFastEnumeration, at its best, calls one function to get a C array of all objects in the collection, and enumerates over them with pointer math. In the ideal world, this is as fast as you can go. But things aren’t ideal
[02:33am] Eridius: if a collection doesn’t have a contiguous array of object pointers, it can’t return them all in one call and will require multiple calls. Or it may copy the objects into a buffer
[02:34am] Eridius: and in key/value collections like NSDictionary, this only retrieves the key, and it requires a message send to get the value
[02:34am] Eridius: block-based enumeration is one function call (the block) per object, but this is the same regardless of the internal layout of the collection (e.g. separate object pointers vs contiguous C arrays of objects vs something else)
[02:34am] Eridius: and block-based enumeration can retrieve the key and value together for key/value collections
[02:35am] Eridius: and, like I said, it trivially supports reverse/concurrent enumeration

What Tree is That? + Twitter

red82 is excited to announce the latest update to the Arbor Day Foundation’s What Tree is That? software. The Arbor Day Foundation’s Tree Identification Guide: What Tree Is That? is based upon their award winning field guide that has helped more than 200,000 people of all ages identify trees.

This release has the ability to publish the locations of identified trees to Twitter with a unique hashtag allowing them to be indexed. In the long term this will allow us to build a crowd-sourced tree census, whose data may some day be useful to researchers and amateur arborists alike.

Founded in 1972, the centennial of the first Arbor Day observance in the 19th century, the Arbor Day Foundation has grown to become the largest nonprofit membership organization dedicated to planting trees, with over one million members, supporters, and valued partners.
