Series 8 Support is in the App Store (almost)

4 Comments

Apple just approved the new Mini Collector. However they forgot about the new purchase item, so you can’t actually unlock Series 8… I’ve contacted them about it.

Some notes about the update:

No guides or codes this time. But it’s the same easy collection tool as it has been from start.

Another new thing is that if you have bought support for any earlier series, this update is of no charge. In fact all future updates will be of the unlock once and be done with it kind. Meaning that if you have bought any earlier Series support, or buy Series 8 support, all future Series support will be included. Yes, I know, should have done like that from the start.

MiniCollector Series 8 support is waiting for Apple’s review

2 Comments

Yes, I should have let you know before. I have been swamped in work and was late with making the update. But then when it was done, it seems that Apple is swamped too, because they are taking forever even looking at it.

Anyway, Series 8 support is on its way. No guides or codes this time. But it’s the same easy collection tool as it has been from start.

Here’s for a speedy review!

Series 7 feel guide (and some bump codes)

8 Comments

Thanks to signature MSSM we now have a complete feel guide for Series 7. MSSM has also provided the bump codes from the batch he has found (508B2 EU). Note that the bump codes can be extra hard to see in this series. And as they vary between between some batches and are sometimes printed up-side-down and sometimes mirrored and sometimes both and … whatever, it’s always better to rely on the feel instructions. Note also that the code for the Viking Woman has a “weak” dot. Enjoy!

Sent to App Store for review – Series 7 support

Why no girls?

Again I employed child labour to get an update of Mini Collector sent to App Store for review. I just have to face it, my daughter has a much better touch with graphic design than I have.

Of course, the new thing with this update is support for Series 7. Some really cool figures there! I can’t decide if I like Little Red Riding Hood best or that Evil Knight. Anyway, Series 7 is again provided as an in-app purchase, though since there’s no revealing support I’m only charging 99 US cents. Any serious Minifigure collector should be able to afford that. =)

I’ll let you know when Apple has approved the app. Meanwhile I have two questions:

  1. Anyone seen any bump codes for Series 7 yet?
  2. I’m thinking maybe I should make a game with these minifigures. What would you think is fun to play?

Happy collecting!

Storyboards FTW

I haven’t been app-coding much at all lately. All my ideas for how to conquer App Store have all been too complex for what little time I have. I really should have spent the time coding small apps just to keep on top on the craft as such. It’s now on my Personal Kaizen list to spend a few hours every week learning the iOS platform better. Unless I have an app idea that I’m working on of course. Then the learning comes automatically.=)

Right now I have an idea for an app that should be small enough for me to carry out yet unique enough for it to keep me interested and committed. I’ve decided to make it iOS 5 only to let me use cool new tech like Storyboards. I sort of have understood the concept, but trying to make an app using Storyboards immediately had me stuck. I think I must learn it from the ground up. Googling it some I quickly found a most excellent tutorial on the subject, split up in two parts:

It is two free chapters from a book on learning many iOS 5 things. The tutorials are clearly written by an expert, using good, to-the-point, prose and with just enough context so that I understand why things are done the way they are done. Bloody great! I think I’ll order the book, at least if I can find it as an e-book of some kind.
