  • Advanced WatchKit Interface Controller Techniques
    Fueled by your interest and encouragement from developers like Brian Gilham (curator of the very useful WatchKit Resources site), and the fact that I’ve already shipped my Apple Watch app, I’ve decided to share some interface controller techniques that I’ve used in my own app. I call them “advanced,” only because they’re techniques that most developers won’t need, not because they’re difficult to ...

  • WatchKit Image Tips
    I heard from many of you that my WatchKit Development Tips post was helpful. So, in the same vein, I’ve assembled a set of tips that pertain specifically to the use of images in a WatchKit app. I hope you can find at least one item that helps with your own design and development.First, it’s helpful to understand how you can get an image onto the Watch screen.

    Update on 5/19/2015: Be sure to read about the Watch OS 1.0.1 Controller Life Cycle Changes There seem to be a lot of questions about the order of WKInterfaceController events and how those events relate to the NSExtensionContext notifications I referenced in my WatchKit Development Tips. Hopefully, this post will bring some clarity to the WatchKit controller life cycle.The example I’ll use featur...

  • WatchKit Development Tips
    I’ve been working full-time on the Apple Watch component of my new WhereNotes app since mid-January. I was also fortunate to be invited to (and attend) an Apple Watch Lab in Cupertino. Over the past three-and-a-half months, I’ve assembled a lot of little tips and tricks, and I’ve included many of them in this post. I hope that something here helps you with your Apple Watch development.You’re proba...

  • Introducing Instagram from Juicy Bits
    Today, Instagram announced an app called Layout from Instagram. It’s described as “a new app that lets you easily combine multiple photos into a single image.” In 2012, I released an Apple Editors’ Choice app called Layout that lets you combine multiple photos into a single image. It was even named an App Store Best of 2012 app. Is it just me, or does it seem insincere for Instagram to release a s...

  • Ai->XAML Plug-In Updated for Illustrator CC
    For the past few years, I’ve received an almost-weekly e-mail about my old Adobe Illustrator to XAML export plug-in. It usually begins with something like: “I just upgraded to Illustrator version (later than CS4), and I can’t get your plug-in to work.” My reply is always along the lines of: “Sorry, but the Illustrator SDK has changed, and I no longer work with XAML. Plus, I’m unable to release the...

  • Making Grids Great in iOS 8
    I’ve spent the past few months updating all of my apps to be compatible with iOS 8. In the case of Halftone 2, I wanted to make sure that it took full advantage of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus screen dimensions at launch. All I can say is: thank goodness I fell in love with Auto Layout years ago! With over 90,000 lines of original code, I’d have been lost without my NSLayoutConstraints. By t...

  • Ai->Canvas Plug-In Source Code Released
    As I mentioned almost exactly one year ago, Adobe approved a request to open source my Ai->Canvas Illustrator plug-in. Since the initial release of the plug-in in 2010, it has always been my intent to release the source code, but the Illustrator SDK EULA (and my time commitments at Juicy Bits) prevented me from doing so. I’d like to re-thank Tom Krcha, Anubhav Rohatgi, Rajesh Budhiraja, and Vincen...

  • JBNSLayoutConstraint Helper Categories
    Apple introduced iOS support for Auto Layout in iOS 6.0, and while it wasn’t love at first sight, I eventually came to appreciate the power and flexibility of NSLayoutConstraint. I’m one of those developers who doesn’t use Interface Builder, nibs, or Storyboards. I’m not against any of those technologies…it’s just that I like to build my interfaces in code. For me, Auto Layout has made it much eas...

  • Unleashing Genetic Algorithms on the iOS 7 Icon
    Last week, I released a Photoshop script that I’ve been using to make icons and rounded rectangles for my iOS 7 app updates. The script generates shapes using values that I reverse-engineered from Apple’s UIBezierPath class. If you’re creating rounded rects for user interface elements, the shapes it produces are a near-exact match. If you’re creating icons, the match is really, really close. Then,...

  • Photoshop Script for iOS 7 Rounded Rectangles
    When Apple revealed iOS 7 at this year’s WWDC, it was obvious that the new app icons had a more rounded rectangular shape. I was happy to see the improvement, because the old shape had an awkward transition between the rounded corners and the straight edges. With this new shape, it’s almost as if someone at Apple decided to finish the job and polish the corners with some high grit sandpaper. I’v...

  • Ai->Canvas 1.2 for Illustrator CC (and CS6)
    I’ve ported my Adobe Illustrator to HTML5 canvas export plug-in to work with Illustrator CC, and while I was at it, I added support for gradient stop opacities and non-zero/even-odd fill rules. I know that many of you are still running CS6, so I’ve added these features to the CS6 version too. You can download version 1.2 of the plug-in on the new Ai->Canvas project page. Gradient Stop Opacity The ...

  • Halftone 2 Object Interaction
    I attended Apple’s WWDC 2013 event in San Francisco last week, and I spent a lot of time talking to fellow developers and designers. As we shared tips and techniques, there were a few topics that repeatedly came up regarding my Halftone 2 app. This post covers the user interaction model for graphical elements like this BOOM stamp: Hopefully, I can inspire others to experiment with new techniques ...

  • Freemium Distaste
    For the past eight months, I’ve been working full-time on the development of Halftone 2, a follow-up to Halftone. The app was released on May 23rd as an Apple Editors’ Choice, and since its availability, I’ve received many one-star reviews in the App Store and a lot of passionate e-mail from users who seemingly despise the idea of the freemium business model. This strong feedback is causing me to ...

  • How to Make Your Own App Promo Cards
    As many of you know, my Halftone app was featured by Starbucks as its Pick of the Week this past August. I visit Starbucks daily for my morning caffeine fix, and over the course of a couple weeks, I managed to collect a small stack of the Halftone cards. They’ve proven to be a fantastic promotional tool and a very handy way to give someone a free copy of the app. They’re so useful that I decided t...

  • Illustrator to HTML5 Canvas Plug-In Updated for CS6
    Update on 7/18/2013: An updated version of the Ai->Canvas plug-in is now available for CS6 and CC. My Ai->Canvas Plug-In (short introductory video) was released almost two years ago, yet I still hear from developers and designers who use it regularly. When Creative Suite 6 was released this past May, users began to report that the plug-in wouldn’t work with the new version. A quick search revealed...

    I’ve been heads-down working on my next Juicy Bits app, and it was just approved by Apple tonight. If all goes according to plan, it’ll be released in the next week or two. Watch for it. While I’m not ready to reveal the app name, I do want to share the icon. This beautiful icon was designed by Dmitry Tsozik and SoftFacade, the same folks who created my Halftone icon. We’ve collaborated over the p...
