Google and Apple are continuing to force new deadlines and new obligations on apps publishers and, consequently, us developers. MOBILE DEADLINES FROM GOOGLE Starting in August 2018 all new Android apps submitted to Google Play store will need to target Android Oreo. In November 2018 updates to existing apps will need to do the same. If you have apps in the Google Play store, they will have to be upgraded before November 2018. In August 2019 all apps will be required to provide a 64-bit version even if they target any native Android libraries. This is not a concern of…

Upgrade your existing app to iOS 11 if you want it to survive! If you app is 32-bit, say, made in 2014 or 2015, chances are, Apple will stop showing them in the App Store. The existing customer will be able to use them but there will no new downloads — and without downloads, there will be no more fresh money from the app. The solution is to let me upgrade, develop and maintain your old app. If your old developer is not available any more, or not interested, give me the source code of your app and access as…

The task is to publish four iOS apps to the store. Previously, the apps were properly compiled and code rectified for iOS 11. It took five weeks to come to the situation that the only task remaining is publishing the apps to the App Store. These apps are present in the Store since 2014 and were quite old by todays standards. The task was to innovate and bring them to life under iOS 11, otherwise Apple would have purged one or all of them from the store. The Logistics Of Publishing Four Apps In A Batch Out of the 8…

If your company has several employees or — even better — if it has dozens and hundreds of employees, you will need to have a special “employee” app. A typical employee app will have this as the main menu: — policies and procedures, — staff directory, — benefits — welness and safety, — general manager news, — team member news, — calendar, — schedules, — alerts and notifications. Employee Admin And the Back Door The employee app is a member-only app, and the login details are defined by the management of the company. There must be a way to enter…

Every year Apple releases a new version iOS and if you have apps in the App Store, you need to upgrade them. In several previous versions, the penalty for not upgrading the apps to the latest version of iOS was not severe. There used to be many apps published in, say, 2014, and still running happily on iPhones and iPad. However, this year, 2017, Apple will punish you if you do not upgrade your apps to the 64 version — your app will not be seen in the Store any more. The apps will continue to function for the existing…

The era of object-oriented programming began some time in mid 1980s. New languages started to appear and one them, Smalltalk, began to be available on the then ubiquitious PC. Smalltalk/V was the version for DOS. It offered a rich set of graphics, fonts, shapes and it was as close to the original Smalltalk as it was possible then. (The “v” in the title meant that it used the memory of the PC in a virtual way, so it seemed that the memory was limitless.) I have programmed in many languages, starting with FORTRAN IV on IBM 360/44 at the university….

Since 1981 the world was swept away by the existence of cheap personal computers such as ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64. Millions of these devices were sold, creating a need for software and documentation — I have the hardware, what else can I do with it? A new class of magazines — computer magazines, appeared out of nowhere. It was obvious that graphics would play a big role in the future of these little computers, so I started out my freelancing career as a writer of a book called “BASIC Interactive Graphics”. The publisher was a UK publishing company called…

Here’s my answer: I’m an active developer for both Android and iOS so here is how I go about charging my customers. One is to get paid monthly for a fixed sum and endure that until the app is published to the store. Another way is per screen and each screen has a certain value, say $100…

Privacy policy is a must both for a web site and for an app. Go to any app or site that is similar to what you are doing, read a couple of their privacy policies and rewrite them for your own case. In many cases it will seem that you are not tracking what the user is doing or that you do not take any personal data from the user so, why bother with a privacy policy at all? It turns out that nowadays people know that they are being spied upon and expect to be tracked across the web…

I often use function safeEscapeString from  in my PHP projects. It helps sustain the integrity of data coming to and from MySQL or similar database. However, if the code ran on PHP 5.4 or 5.6 at the highest, and I wanted it to run PHP 7.0, the latest and greatest version of PHP. When the error reporting is turned on, a fatal error in code will appear. The solution is to use the recommended function mysqli_real_escape_string, which takes two parameters, the link and the string to sanitize. $temp2 = mysqli_real_escape_string($link, $temp2); Since I had not had a special link to…

After submitting new build and version it again waited for review, but only for an hour. The review phase now took only ten minutes and the app was approved. This is not exactly a “1 day” process, more of a “3 day” process, but still very good. The app, by the way, is called Gastritis Help.

Almost all apps nowadays post to Twitter, Facebook and other social sites. The reason is that in iOS, it is relatively easy to post to social sites, and so was moderately difficult to write plugins to that end. On the Android side, there is no such support so here is for the first time an Android plugin that posts to Twitter. A similar plugin for Android only is also available for Facebook, and there is a third plugin, called Share Menu, that can post to twelve different social sites, provided you first enter the password for each site that you…

If you want a free channel of marketing for your new app, you should publish a video about the app. It is easy to make one such video, perhaps by combining the screenshots from your app, by paying someone on Fiverr to do it and so on. Once the video is published, you should add a link to the description of the video, pointing to the app in the store so that people who see the video can easily download it. Here is a link to a simple video I did for my Android app, called Rihanna Lyrics Complete: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-9WncJJZy8…

Someone’s app was rejected from Apple on the grounds of 2.12 and 10.6.

Not using the “native iOS look and feel” might be another way of decribing it. Here is my reply in the forum post.

When creating apps, the main worry, as usual, is content. If we are to write all our content ourselves, then we are not publishers, but authors who self publish themselves, and unless your are Tolkien, that is not a surefire way to riches. So, why not use the content that is already out there, on Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and Blogger blogs, YouTube and so on.

GIMP TUTORIAL – How to make an iPhone app icon in Gimp Creating an icon in the Gimp is not very difficult, as the…

“About Dusko Savic” page is kind of my business resume. For the whole of my life, I have been involved in something new, experimental, innovative, electronic and the like. I also write a lot. You can go to www.amazon.com and type in “dusko savic” and you will see at least two of my paper books still in there. Interestingly enough, my first three books were published in English by UK publishers, although English is not my mother’s tongue. All in all I have written, published, marketed, and sold some 25 books of my own. For many years I also worked…
