Renamed Todo 0.7.1

December 17, 2014

Broken HammerI was hoping this release would include new features but time was not on my side this go around. I decided to go ahead with a minor bug fix release instead. Solving an erroneous authentication error when authorizing the app with Dropbox. Enjoy and stay tuned for more enhancements down the road.

Just a reminder…

Companies like Facebook, Twitter, or Google should not own or control your relationships. If you are unhappy with a company or their service then stop using it. There are many ways to interact online and offline without a large company owning you.

It’s been a crazy busy 2014 and there are no signs that it will let up anytime soon. I have a tendency to line up several projects which I don’t necessarily have time for but work on anyway. So here is a quick recap of what I have brewing in the background.

BlackBerry

Over the last year or so BlackBerry has gone through a lot of much needed transformation as a company. In the process though they curtailed their developer relations considerably and are focusing their energy toward enterprise development. Regardless of the focus shift on their part I decided to continue developing native applications for the platform. I love developing in Qt/C++ and I’ll continue to publish in BlackBerry World for as long as they’ll allow me to.

LuneOS

Just as I was about to officially sunset my app for webOS I saw the official first release of LuneOS from the webos-ports team. My curiosity got the better of me and I took it for a spin and liked what I saw. So I started contributing small amounts of work to the project. Nothing major thus far but it’s been fun getting involved and learning about the internal workings.

Renamed Todo and Todo.txt Enyo

I’ve got some fixes and updates to Renamed Todo for BlackBerry 10 in progress and hope to get it out the door in time for the BlackBerry Classic release. Todo.txt Enyo got a minor update to work properly under the initial LuneOS release. Going forward however I’m doing a complete overhaul and switching to the Enyo 2 framework. At that point I’ll be able to go beyond webOS based platforms and support more platforms.

Twitter

In case you missed it I have unplugged from Twitter. The network has changed a lot over the years even though it’s core function (microblogging) has remained the same. Ads have become more central, third party clients have been pushed away, and the experience is no longer the enjoyable. Combine that with the ever growing ever louder abuse by others with little to no action on the part of Twitter led me to leave the network. It’s just not worth it. I’ll do a separate post on my social presence soon.
