Palm pre?
Aug 12th, 2009 by myhip

We’ve recently begun looking at the Palm pre SDK, and the webOS platform.

In less than a week we had ported over 9… err 8 (one is waiting on a bug to be fixed) of our existing iPhone apps.

We’ve encountered a problem in porting with one of our most popular iPhone apps, “Mind Reader on myHIP”. Problem: The app makes use of a standard HTML method for in page positioning called “fixed anchors”, however, there’s a bug in Palm’s HTML engine that is ignoring “named anchors”, thereby making it impossible to position a page to it’s named anchor.

So this code, won’t work properly… (opening “<" omitted for readability) a name="top">
img somefile.png height=440>
a href=”#page2″>next page
a name=”page2″>
img someotherfile.png height=440>
a href=”#top”>previous page

We haven’t decided if we will release apps for Palm pre. We are waiting until further info becomes available about the business agreements between developers and Palm.

Say Wuh ?!?
Aug 12th, 2009 by myhip

We’ve recently submitted an app to the app store that’s called “Say Wuh?!?”.

It’s 4 applets in one.

1) Yo Momma jokes – random one-liners to insult someone’s Mom.
2) Zoltap – non-sensical mystical insulter
3) Quotes – Thousands of random quotes
4) Fortune Cookie – Random fortune and lucky numbers

Initially we self-rated the app as for 12+ age level. Our reasoning is that the language used is nothing at a teenager hasn’t heard. However, Apple doesn’t see it that way and our app has been initially denied due to inappropriate content.

We’ve resubmitted the app with a 17+ rating, and we are now waiting for approval/denial.

While it’s not officially censorship, it’s definitely something.
