I’m sad to say that in the next couple of days I’ll be removing both the free and paid versions of Tanks! from the US app store. I received an email from Apple last night saying that Atari had complained about the game saying that it infringed on their copyright....

Just got back from a trip up to Scotland to visit my good friends Rob and Judy for the comedy festival. Since we had a bit of spare time on of the days, Rob and I decided that it would be good fun to try and hook his Kinect up...

I just received the following email from Apple:<blockquote>On 12/1/2010, we received a notice from Nikoli.Co.Ltd. that Nikoli.Co.Ltd. believes your application named “Sudoku Grab” infringes Nikoli.Co.Ltd.’s intellectual property rights.

Thought it might be interesting to share some stats on how iAds are performing. Heart Rate - Free has now been live for 2-3 weeks. Interestingly it somehow ended up in the wrong category, going into Entertainment when it was supposed to go into Health and Fitness. I don’t know...

Saw an app that does this on the android platform so thought I ‘d give it a go on iPhone. It measures your heart rate by looking at the changes in skin colour as the blood flows in. It’s only available on the iPhone 4 as it needs the flash...

A long time ago I did a blog post on how to do AR on the iPhone. The code was written pre iOS4.0 and used the UIGetScreenImage function. I’ve now updated the code to use the new 4.0 features. The code is available here With the advent of iOS4.0 we...

Long time no post - I’ve been in the lucky position of having too much paid work, so my own projects have had to be put to one side. However, I have had time to write and release a new game. “Tanks!” is now available for the Palm Pre/Pixie -...

There’s actually nothing specific to ES2.0 in this port - the code is exactly the same as in tutorial 3, but we are now passing all the data required to draw 3D shapes. There are a couple of gotchas - for some reason in the default OpenGL template that xCode...

Very pleased to get my first 3D game on the app store. It’s been an interesting learning exercise, still feels as though I’m occasionally fumbling in the dark with only a vague understanding of how and why things are working. The games section on the app store is a notoriously...

Wondered down to have a look at the Apple store on Regent Street this morning. Couple of amusing quotes. From a guy in the queue who was already holding an iPad - “It’s a great device! I’ve no idea what I’m going to use it for…” And a random cyclist...

I’ve created a new demo project available here. This one uses the RSS feeds from the iPLayer site to find the URLs and then uses the webview to play the actual movie. Once again, you'll need the iPhone SDK and tool chain to build the project. The code is a...

(UPDATE - there’s a new sample project available here). Flew back from the US on Monday carrying a shiny new iPad. One of my thoughts when I bought it was that it would make the perfect device for watching BBC iPlayer in bed - so you can imagine my dissappointment...
