I have updated the app and added several more grape types.
I also updated the app to allow the end user pick the country of origin.
I am not quite ready to submit the update. Since I am storing the data in an iOS 7.x data container, I want to make sure that the ‘old’ data (without country) will migrate to the new (with country) without loss to the end user.
Testing testing people! 🙂
As always, please provide feedback about anything at all.
It is on the App store!

So I would am very open to suggestions. I am working on a sort in the table, but that has turned out to be harder than expected. Not the sort, but the array to display the results in the UITableView.
and uploading new applications quickly are NOT compatible statements.
Since iOS 7 has been released, I have been slowly updating my Japanese apps. This has proven to be more difficult than I thought as Apple removed the nice little built in button lines. I am not sure if I need to create my own button graphic, then re-write the button engine to use the graphic. I have a boat load of buttons.
A good thing however is that Apple has made the social aspect of sharing really easy. Simple ‘#import Social/Social.h’ and 5 lines of code and you are off to the races.
That in mind, I created a really quick app to capture pictures and use a table to show information about a wine tasting my wife and I attended. I am just about ready to upload it now. IT is free, but I hope to get some good feedback and add more to wine list.
I am sorry that I have not been around to update this blog, but a great deal has been going on in my personal life. And, as ‘they’ say, such is life.
However, I have updated my code to work with iOS6.x and am working on an iOS7 version. XCode 5 is unstable for me, so I will continue my coding efforts in Xcode 4.6.3. I have completely revamped the interface for all 3 applications – yes, I now have 3. Two are currently under review for release and the third is still in the hopper doing testing. All three work well under iOS 7beta …
iOS 7 is really amazing. The notification center and also the pull up dashboard make this iOS fantastic. I think the multi-tasking switching is really great too. Makes it easy to close apps that have frozen.
Google Translate does not work and G+ is pretty unstable. FB works fine- Most of the games I have also work fine under iOS7.
I am really excited to have get the final release and start using it. I cannot image the amount of work going into Xcode 5 as well as iOS 7. iOS 7 feels closer to being finished. Xcode 5 is just ugh… Time will tell.
I added changes to the interface. The user can select which type face they wish to use or rotate through the type faces on the fly.
I start in romaji:
