I’ve been playing around with CloudKit in my new app. I had to rethink my entire app after Facebook changed their API in April and one of my most important functions ceased to be possible. It is taking me way too long to get this baby out the door. I’m hoping to be ready by the iOS 8 launch. It’s not easy to work and make apps on the side and have a life, LOL. I gave up too many weekends getting my doctorate degree.
I’m in the process of converting my Hotelplanner app to Storyboards. When that is successful, I will convert it to use autolayout in anticipation of using the new size classes of iOS 8. But that will be awhile. I need to support at least a couple of releases backward.
The temptation is huge to rewrite half my classes to incorporate newer technologies! Only so many hours in a day. I have to restrain myself.
There are so many things on my todo list! After my app is released, I am going to focus on Swift and on making 2D characters and scenes. I am determined to do a game and I may as well learn the new SpriteKit, SceneKit, and Playgrounds in the process.
