Unable to Download App
I was asked to fix an issue with an existing app called SmartPak wherein users on iOS 10.1+ would see a warning message about the app slowing down their phone if they were using a 64 bit device. The fix itself was pretty straightforward – the architecture settings did not support 64 bit builds and a Digimarc library needed to be updated.
As I prepared to distribute the app for internal QA, I ran into a more difficult problem. I was unable to download the Adhoc Crashlytics build to any of my test devices.
Link detection Crash
In reviewing a crash log for a recently published app, I ran across a scenario where a user could reproducibly force a crash by using a long press on a link in a UITextView.
- Occurs on iOS 9.
- UITextView on a presented view controller.
- Two consecutive long presses on a detected link in the UITextView.
On the first long press, I see the warning:

I wanted to write-up the result of a code challenge that I completed a while ago. I was asked to create a tabbed iOS app with sectioned tables, pulling video thumbnails and article titles into different sections. Clicking on a thumbnail or article title would display the corresponding video or article in a separate view. Adding to the challenge, I was asked to provide bookmarking capability for the videos and articles. The bookmarked content would be visible in a second tab.

I recently took on a code challenge that was delivered in an interesting fashion. I was given a video that showed the manipulation of two images and was asked to create an iOS app that had the same behavior as the video.
After watching the video (many times), I extracted the following requirements for my app:
As a software professional I am interested in maintaining good relationships with my connections. While I never thought to use a CRM for such a purpose, that just might change after coming across Contactually.
Contactually allows you to collect and merge contact information from various sources including e-mail, calendars and social networks (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter). Contactually can help you with automatic reminders to follow-up with your connections, but that is just a small part of what the platform offers. Some of the key features are centered around Buckets, Templates, Programs and Pipelines.
