Spot the Difference

One question that I realised that I have not answered very clearly yet is, What’s the difference between Yummy and Yummy Browser? That’s what I hope to answer here. Perhaps obvious, but worth repeating anyway, is that Yummy Browser is the “lite” version of Yummy. The practical upshot being that every feature in Yummy Browser […]

Editing Tags

One of the constant battles you come across when developing an iPhone application is that between limited screen space and the desire to make new features obvious and easy to find. The ability to edit tags is clearly an area where I saved screen real-estate at the expense of making it discoverable. I refer here […]

Memory Warning

By now many of you (assuming you own Yummy!) will have seen the above warning message. Why are you getting it and what does it really mean? That’s what this post hopes to answer. The first thing to note is that the error message is being completely honest. The iPhone has told Yummy that it […]

Sending bookmarks to Twitter

The funny thing about sending bookmarks from Delicious to Twitter is that I did this entirely for myself. I never saw any demand for it until after I’d added it! Now I see lots of people wanting to do exactly that and it was a popular feature with beta testers. So here’s what it looks […]

Yummy Settings

The functionality of Yummy that we’ve seen over the last couple of weeks has pretty much been what you get “out of the box.” There is, however, an increasingly large number of switches and options in the Settings application that you can set to customise Yummy to work just the way you like. You Delicious.com […]

Web Preview

A popular request from users of version 1.0 if Yummy was a built-in web page viewer. I was more than happy to oblige. The “action” menu at the bottom right is exactly the same as that found in the post view screen, with the same functionality and operation. While mainly designed to view your bookmarks, […]

Bookmarks

All the information that delicious.com holds about your bookmarks are available in Yummy, whether you are on- or off-line. Of course there’s no point in just looking at your bookmarks! You want to do something with them. The first option is hinted at by the arrow to the right of the URL. This opens the […]

Searching for Bookmarks

Searching has always been a big feature of Yummy and has been revamped and improved for version two. For starters, the screen looks different: Note how that here we have searched for bookmarks that have both the “iphone” and “development” tag. A similar trick applies when you search by title and notes fields: it searches […]

View by Tag

Brand new in Yummy 2.0 is the ability to browse through your bookmarks by tag. You could already search for them but a number of users indicated that a screen like this would be very useful: From here you can drill down to get a list of bookmarks. One neat touch here (if I do […]

View by Date

Users of Yummy version 1.0 will find this screen the most familiar as it was the default. Nevertheless you will find some changes here. Rather than have a section heading for every date, the granularity changes as you head back in time. You get a heading for every day of the last week, one for […]
