My next task for Snapthread is to add support for landscape videos. I think what I’ll do is have the app “smartly” pick the best aspect ratio for your final video based on the clips you’ve chosen, but also give you the ability to manually change it (including 1:1). 🎥

Did anyone at Apple even try to use Control Center on the iPhone X while carrying a coffee, or a briefcase, or, I don’t know, a baby? I think I’m gonna have to yell about this until they change it.

How do I add multiple volume changes to an AVMutableAudioMixInputParameters instance? Using setVolume:atTime twice in a row is causing the first instruction to be ignored.

Indies: when you decide to run with a new app idea, what sort of prep do you do before you ever fire up Xcode? Prototype? Design sketches?

Currently preparing to submit my Nebraska app for review later tonight. This whole project took about five months longer than it needed to, but I’m proud of the finished product and hope people in my state will have fun with it!

Quick progress update: I’ve been treating Corgi Corral as sort of a SpriteKit/GameplayKit sandbox, as I really want to learn about everything these frameworks have to offer. Lately I’ve been exploring particle emitters, which means my winter scene now has falling snow and a small campfire! Next up: creating some more custom menu icons to reduce the amount of text in the game.

Lately I’ve been thinking about how I should get the word out about my game both now and when it’s released. I have my self-hosted devlog, but what else? Should I also post on TIGForums, TouchArcade, and/or SlideDB? Do I need to post more GIFs? I don’t have a dime to spend on marketing, but I’d like to do as much as I can otherwise!

Let’s try this one more time… I’d like to try doing some microblogging on my site and I’m hoping this 1) posts to Twitter and 2) is excluded from my main RSS feed. I definitely need to find a better way to cross-post to Twitter (right now I’m using WordPress’s “Publicize” tool), so maybe I’ll try IFTTT.
