Following the success of Quick Calendar for Mac, I am happy to announce the imminent availability of Quick Calendar for iPhone and iPad. (Okay, the fact that I wanted it also factored into the decision to make it!)
Without wishing to undersell it, it’s basically the same as the Mac version. It shows the current month — or slightly less in the default “small” mode — in the Notification Center. It’s free but you can donate in the main app. There’s no obligation, but if you think it’s useful I’d appreciate the support. It helps keep it maintained on new versions of iOS and potentially funds new projects.
I use it all the time. I hope you find it useful, too.
Update (5 September): now available on the App Store!
CameraGPS 1.2 is a big update. I toyed with the idea of calling it version 2.0; it’s that big.
The “marquee” new feature is built-in geotagging. When you open a trail, you can see any editable pictures that were taken around the same time. Pins show where the trail indicates your pictures were taken. You can then select the images you want to tag and add the location to them. The location can either be the nearest “real” location — i.e., an actual recorded track point — or CameraGPS can interpolate between the two nearest points.
Of course if you want to continue to use your favourite geotagging app you can. Version 1.2 includes support for the new “extensions” that Apple introduced with iOS 8, allowing you to export your GPS trails to any supported cloud service. Of course, Box and Dropbox are still supported. We’ve also tested exporting to Google Drive and iCloud Drive. All you need to do it install the services app.
Note: You’ll need the latest version of the Box app (3.5.2 at the time of writing) for it to work reliably with that service.
In addition to all that, there’s a host of smaller changes and improvements. Some of the more visible include the “Low battery” notifications now include the ability to stop recording without opening the app and support for the latest Apple devices (iPhone 6 and 6+ screen sizes, 64-bit builds). Of course there are always minor tweaks and fixes.
A lot of work has gone into this release and we hope you like it. It’s a free update for existing users and the same bargain price for everyone else. It’s currently with Apple for review and hopefully we be out soon.
After the bad news about www.cut, I thought I should post some good news. And here we have a quick video — the one that will be the basis of the App Preview when it’s available on the App Store — showing off some of the features of the new version of CameraGPS, our geotagging app.
CameraGPS has had substantial changes to take advantage of the new facilities in iOS 8, so much so that it is now iOS 8-only. (The vast majority of users are currently running the latest version of the operating system. If you’ve not updated yet — please do! It’s worth it.) We’ve included everything from the new interactive notifications right through to the ability to geotag your images right inside the app.
Hopefully it should be available before new the New Year. It will be a free upgrade for existing users.
