Version 1.0.0 of my free financial notepad application built on Adobe AIR is live for download. And being an Adobe AIR application it requires the runtime from Adobe (free) and works on all the major platforms.
My application I Paid Who? is still alive and well, due to various things it had to take a back seat for a while but it is now squarely in the spotlight again and coding will continue. In the meantime here is a few videos of the features.
CandyBar – Ultimate Mac Icon manaagement application.
Transit – The defacto Mac FTP application.
Coda – One window web development (this is a MUST if you do web work)
Unison – News reading and posting software.
I use them all, love them all and recommend them all.
So finally here is some information on my application I am calling
‘I Paid Who?’.
What’s it do?
The application came about as a solution to a problem I had. I wanted a way to record my charity donations and easily get at the data. I soon realized that it might be useful to others as a payment notepad. To that end you can record the following information in a record: name, date, amount and a text note.
You can also edit and delete records, this is the planned feature set for the initial release although I have a list of features I would already like to add eventually including report style printing, search and view filtering by name, date and amount (you can currently sort the list by name & date). Along with features to allow for easier recording of entries, things like being able to chose from names currently in the database rather than typing them every time.
My plan is to expand the application slowly ensuring each release is solid and reduce the possibility of bugs or problems as I go.
Is there something I can see?
Indeed, here is a link to a video!. I have not made a web site yet for it as I have been focusing on getting the application ready.
But I have opinions and want to express them!
Well OK then, get over to the forums and share them.
When will it be ready?
At the moment it is still in development and testing, I have work to do on the look and feel of the interface now that the basic core functionality is in place. I also have a list of features that I plan to add as it moves along and you can read about those in the forums until the web site is ready.
Nothing, I had not planned to charge for this and have no plans at this time to start doing so, but I reserve the right to change my mind if the application feature set reaches a point that it requires more of my time to work on it.
I decided to turn my photo for today into a 1920×1880 JPG wallpaper file for everyone to enjoy.
First in a series of images that I am also making for people to use as desktop backgrounds, because we all need some inspiring words now and again.
I have added wallpapers for download on my site www.uibuzz.com, the preview system right now is very primitive. I did have it set to use a WordPress lightbox plugin but there appeared to be some problems with the plugin at the last minute on FireFox and I will have to either write my own or go about it a different way.
Code snippets are something all developers end up with, and we all need tools to enable easy management of the code. I have listed two that remain on my machines with pro’s and con’s, you can find them at this link.
