With the release of iOS 11, many of my original iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch apps stopped working. 64-bit mode is now required. So, I went back to the beginning – to Revisions. It was my very first book and my very first app. Ah, it started out in Android back in those days. But since it was a WebView app, it wasn’t long before Revisions was on iOS too. That’s why Tumult Hype is interesting. I’ve been with experimenting with Hype projects as apps. I’ve had some success and some failures. This “Book” template for Tumult Hype highlights the matter.
Some people just hate Trump. Maybe it’s his policies. Maybe they don’t like his attitude. Maybe they want to be the one to take him down, as it can boost their career. Me, I don’t hate him. I actually like him. I also like making websites, which is why I find the recent change to whitehouse.gov quite fascinating. It was recently switched from Drupal to WordPress. Was this a good move? It’s too early to tell, but there are some issues with the new website.
Recently, I went through my browser bookmarks and realized that I had a lot of old links. Aside from my “Favorites Bar” or top links, I didn’t really think about the bookmarks, nor did I actually use the bookmarks a lot. I had links from over a decade ago. So, I cleaned it out. But when I was finished, I realized that I had a decent collection of Web Development and Web Design links. Why not share it? Are you a web developer or web designer? Maybe you’ll find this list of links useful.
A Total Eclipse will pass across the entirety of the continental United States on August 21, 2017. It’s not something you see every day. The event is garnering a lot of press. Some websites even have cool animations of the eclipse. That’s when I started wondering, “I probably could build that in Hype.” So, that’s what this week’s free template is about.
Back in the golden age of 8-BIT gaming, the action could continue more than an average player could sit in one spot. Games were getting longer. Fancy games, such as The Legend of Zelda, had a battery backup to save player progress. But games like Metroid or Mega Man 2 had an alternative method – a passcode system. Players could enter a secret code to save their progress. Some Flash games in the late 90’s and early 2000’s also used this technique. Could the same be done with Hype?
