I Think I Spider

It has been a while since our 1.0 release of I think I spider, but we have been working hard on a new major release with a couple of great improvements. Last week version 2.0 was approved by Apple and is available in the App Store.

While the new Android version is going to be released soon, I'll tell you all about the improvements of the iOS App.

I Think I SpiderWhen you enable Apple Push Notifications (APN) for your App, your device generates a unique device token and pass it to the didRegisterForRemoteNotificationsWithDeviceToken method in your App delegate. Usually, you'll hand the token to your server in order for it to push notifications to your device.

There are different tokens for production and sandbox, depending on which provisioning profile you build/sign your App with. One more gotcha, you need to be aware of when it comes to those device tokens: don't mix production and sandbox tokens!

I Think I Spider

Today we are proud to present our own very first App (it's actually our second Android App) that made it to the App Store and Android Market - I think I spider!

In corporation with Lars, a great designer from upstruct and the content from the hilarious website ithinkispider.com, we managed to release an App that hopefully puts a smile on your face every single day.

I Think I SpiderDuring the process of developing I think I spider we discovered various problems regarding Android's different resolutions. Here you can see which problems we encountered and how we solved them:

We are being told that we should not use the AbsoluteLayout , but what if there is no other choice of implementing your layout except for using the AbsoluteLayout? What If the layout needs to have some views to overlay each other so that it fits nicely?

I Think I SpiderWe improved our "I think I spider" App quite a bit since Beta 1. Among other stuff we added some nice sound effects. If you want to check it out, let us know and we'll hook you up!

If you are like me and not a big fan of sounds, you probably want to turn them off. That's why we provide a Settings Bundle, which lets you flip a switch in the Settings Application of your iOS device, in order to turn off sounds.

I Think I SpiderOur little pet project "I think I spider" is almost ready to be thrown out into the wild!

That means we are running a closed beta for iOS devices for the next couple of weeks. In case you haven't upgraded your device to Apple's latest operating system yet, this is the time to do it, because we are targeting iOS 4 only. Unfortunately, we are not ready to support iPad devices yet, but it's on our radar and planned for a future version.

I Think I Spider We are working on a fair number of Apps here at our mobile team and today we are proud to announce one of them: I think I spider!

The "I think I spider" App idea was born, when we discovered the corresponding web site. We had so much fun with it, that we decided to bring all the joy to the major mobile platforms. Thanks to the support of Michael, the master mind behind ithinkispider.com. We were able to use the original silly little quotes, that we all know and love.

First of all, I was quite surprised as i saw that 70% of the SynyxSudoku users that uploaded their highscores have also agreed to send us their device specific data, because I really didn't expect more than 10-20%.
So as you can imagine, we've got quite a few samples of data since the release, on that we now want to give you a little overview.

There were a few little things that had to be changed on SynyxSudoku after the release, so today we uploaded an update to the version 1.02.

Here's a quick changelog:

* You can now only resume a game after a restart of the app, if you started a game in the previous session (or before) and didn't solve it. (If the app was moved into the background while a solved game was active, you can still resume it if you like. It's only gone if you close the app.)
