As indicated in my previous post, I am currently in an update maintenance only phase to smoothly prepare for iOS 8.
First application concerned by this phase: SoHO Viewer.
This little post is to present you what I intend to work on for the next months.
As I will be quite busy due to personal and good reasons, I won't be able to make big updates for the time being. So I will focus on some small, maintenance related, application updates, intended to facilitate iOS 8 migration when the time will come.
Now that SoHO Viewer has been downloaded more than 50,000 times (51,1K according to itunesconnect reportings), it is time to give some numbers about it.Read more…
I want to thanks all my users for this.
As a fact it was first submitted a week ago but I got to resubmit it after I found an issue with cloud synchronization for devices running on iOS 7.
The interface will remain globally the same, but without wood backgrounds images to better integrate with guidelines for the new iOS.
I am currently working on an update that will fix those issues.
Summary of last updates:
Astro Kit - 1.1.0
Waiting for review:
Rotary Puzzle 2 - 1.1.0
Rotary Puzzle - 1.4.0
Loyd's Puzzle - 2.4.0

I intend to submit to the AppStore a new iOS application. Update : DONE
Astro Kit is an utility to help setting up a telescope.
It gives those useful informations in one screen: - GPS coordinates - universal time - compass - Polaris local hour angle.
I created this software a few weeks ago in a mere half an hour for a personal usage.
As it could help many star lovers like myself I decided to publish it, even if the graphical user interface is minimalist.
It will also be my first application to be localized in three languages: - English - French - German
PS: Be careful to keep your iPhone away from any magnet or metal when using the compass. Some protections for iPhone include a magnet, the indicated direction becomes wronged.
This update improves graphics on iPad
