Yummy 2.7.7

Last, but by no means least, in my programme to update all Wandle apps for iOS 7 is Yummy.

Yummy 2.7.7 Date List

I’ll be the first to admit that it has taken a long time to arrive. Yummy is a deceptively large and complex app, and the fact that it was originally written for iPhone OS 2 in 2008 has not helped matters. This means that this update has had much more work “under the hood” that you can’t see than changes that you can see.

That’s not to say that there’s no Good Stuff. The “edit bookmark” screen has seen another facelift — moving the tabs to the top rather than the bottom of the screen, adding a character count for the notes.

In bullet points:

  • Updates for iOS7
  • Enhanced edit screen
  • Notes character count
  • Removed “shake to refresh” function
  • Bug fixes
  • Note: the earliest supported iOS version is now 6.0.

I am currently evaluating the possibility of an update that is a better iOS 7 citizen, including background updates. This will likely involve dropping support for iOS 6 and below.

Keep an eye out for the new version on Twitter and, of course, your device.

Update (2 January 2014): Apple approved the update in almost record time and it’s not wending its way to the App Store.

This is the first of a few relatively small iOS 7 updates coming your way very soon.

Well, I say small. It looks like a small change but in terms of code it’s much more significant than you might imagine. I won’t bore you with the details but I will say that I managed to add “Send to iMessage” support as part of the upgrade. You might also notice a small tweak to the icon.

But something had to give and that is iOS 5 support. The old version should continue to work without problem.

One other thing: in previous updates I have had to remove some defunct URL shortening services. This represents the first significant release where that has not happened!
