I'm evaluating a multi-media course on blogging from the folks at Simpleology. For a while, they're letting you snag it for free if you post about it on your blog.

It covers:

  • The best blogging techniques.
  • How to get traffic to your blog.
  • How to turn your blog into money.

I'll let you know what I think once I've had a chance to check it out. Meanwhile, go grab yours while it's still free.

a little diversion from iPhone apps...

OK, I don't usually go off into "where'd this come from" land, but in this case, I'm going to make an exception. I've been looking at ways to become more productive, and have found thus guy, Mark Joyner, who happens to be an internet marketing genius. He's also an award winning author, with books in marketing and productivity. Where was I going with this... Oh yeah, I remember now :)
So anyway, this Mark Joyner guy has a website (and book) called "Simpleology - The simple science of getting what you want." I've been reading the book, pretty easy read, and full of things you'll wonder why you didn't think of it yourself. His site has a bunch of courses, dealing with everything from productivity, to building an internet business of your own.
You can find his site at Go check it out, you'll be glad you did.

New release out, and a good resource...

Ok, first the new release...
A couple nights ago, I released a new version of EZ-Groups. The new version fixes a couple bugs, was iOS4 tested, and has a couple new features. The bugs were nothing the users would notice (or at least I hope note ;)) I just saw a couple issues in crash reports that I cleaned up.
The real changes the users will see, are I've added an index down the side of the All People view, much like the phone as on its address book, and I added the ability to see which groups a person is associated with. This is handy for someone who wants to quickly see that their softball buddy, also bowls with him, or friends who also work with you. The best example of how this can be used, was actually the inspiration to the change. The user uses this app to organize contact information for people in public life, and adds them to groups according to committees and organizations they're a part of. Now, not only can he see that "John Doe is a member of ACME Charity", but he can also see who else he has as a contact, that is also a member of that charity.
More changes are coming soon, along with changes to Bracket Man!

And finally, I found this great forum for iPad resources, check it out!

Another new app!

You have an iPhone. You love your iPhone. How do I know, because I love mine! ;)
it does so many great things, yet even with this incredible device, there is always something lacking. I've just released an app that fills one of those gaps. Introducing, the newest app from, EZ-Groups. EZ-Groups allows you to organize your contacts into groups, right from the phone. If you're like me, you have well over a hundred contacts on your phone. Scrolling through all those contacts can be a pain. Now, you can create contact groups to organize your contacts into smaller, more manageable groups. Need to create a contact list for everyone in the group? No Problem!, with EZ-Groups, you can easily create a new list, in HTML format that can be easily sent to anyone who may need access to that contact list. Great for sports teams, large families, classes, on call lists for work, or anything where someone may need to quickly get a hold of someone on in the list.
You can get EZ-Groups now, on the app store, just $.99

Just found one of my apps on a website

As I was looking at my hosting reports, I typically look at where links are coming from. I found an interesting one today, for Bracket Man Pro. This was from Best Buy Mobile, giving BracketManPro some good publicity. What really surprised me, is I'm on the first page of this site, featured!

Another release!

I don't know what Apple did over Christmas, but it seems like they did something right. Before they took a week off, it was taking an average of one to two weeks to get updates out. However, after Christmas, I've released a few updates, and each one has happened in less than a week. The latest was to the basketball stats app. I've had a few people emailing me asking for the ability to email stats. I'm not going to say it was the hardest thing I've ever done, because it wasn't. In fact, far from it. What I will say, is there are some nasty little bugs in the iPhone OS that prevent PDF files from rendering properly on anything other than an iPhone or a Mac. So, instead of a PDF report like I originally wanted, I converted it to HTML and sent that as an attachment. It works well, and allowed me to put more stats on than I could in PDF format, so I suppose it was a blessing in disguise. Anyway, the new app is ready and available on the app store.

Bug fixes...

Just last night, I submitted a new version of my BasketBall Stats iPhone App to fix a bug. Not a particularly big bug, but one of those that causes the app to not feel very polished. So, what was this bug? Well, turns out, I had fouls and stats mixed up in a few places. Not a big deal, I know, but I did get a few complaints, so I thought rather than ignore my users, I'd take care of the issue.
So, we'll see how long it takes Apple to approve this version. Hopefully not too long ;)
