STRIP isn’t the only iPhone application we’ve been working on. Can’t really go into the details right now, but I just wanted to give a heads up:


Strip Beta List

2009-03-01 19:00:00 -0500


We’re getting the beta email list together for Strip on the iPhone, we’ll be announcing the details shortly. If you want to participate, please shoot us an e-mail at support@zetetic.net. For those who aren’t hip with it just yet, Strip is our personal information and password manager. It stands for Secure Tool for Recalling Important Passwords, and you can read more about it over here.

Thanks for your patience while we’ve been getting the app together. It’s basically all set to go, but needs some user-vetting, and we need to spend a little time cranking out some utilities to migrate Palm Strip users to the new app (or to at least give them a CSV they can use to migrate to another platform).

And now I leave you with the Moz, got work to do:


Deeper Thought on webOS

2009-02-27 19:00:00 -0500


I have admittedly ragged on Palm a bit of late, but I just watched their webcast on Developing Application for webOS, and I had but one thought:

“Ssssssssssssnap!”

Seriously, though. If you’re doing iPhone development, sure you get the Cocoa framework and access to OpenGL and all that, but you don’t get such open access to the system and other applications (with Sync!) like you will with webOS. At least, that’s my hunch, I guess time will tell. But just the basic layout of the high-level architecture warms my heart.

You know what else is awesome? The API has “stages” and “scenes”! That rocks.

Jury is still out as to whether you can run processor intensive games in this platform, but honestly we’re not game programmers, and this does seem to uniquely enable easy development.

On a total tangent, I went to the Jelly NYC event at my workspace today and mentioned that next week we’ll be starting the beta for Strip on the iPhone (sign up for the mailing list over here, or just e-mail us). Of the 15 or so people there, one of them was a hard core, long-time user of Strip, and is still toting his Palm around waiting for a way to migrate to his iPhone. Can’t wait. Stay tuned!

How many of you characters have read Smashing the Stack for Fun and Profit by Aleph1? Just curious. Also, if you did, did you make it all the way to the end?


Git Pr0n: STRIP

We just merged our development branch for Strip into the master branch. Now, granted some of this is XIB files, icon images, and included openssl headers. Nonetheless:

Hoping to have some good screen shots up soon.
