Potions for Minecraft

Website changes

Posted: Friday, September 27th, 2013

I’ve removed the forum from the babcockapps.com because of technical difficulties and lack of use.  I really need to refresh the whole site but I’ve really been busy with the Minecraft apps.  They have their own websites:

Tutorial is finished

Posted: Thursday, July 5th, 2012

I’m in the process of building apps with the newly finished tutorial. 4 apps are have been updated so far and in the iTunes store. They have version 2.1.1.

Sorry for the delay. Apple is requiring hi-res screen shots for any app updates so I have to recreate them all.

Apple corrupting some app downloads

Posted: Thursday, July 5th, 2012

This should not affect any Photo Effects updates. However, I’m providing this notice as reported on MacRumors just in case:

Apple’s App Store is apparently pushing out corrupted app binaries of a number of different applications to users. The issue, which renders the apps unusable, has apparently been triggered on app updates approved over the past few days.
Characterizations of this issue:

– The app crashes immediately on launch, every time, even after a delete and reinstall as long as the corrupt file is being served by the App Store.
– It doesn’t even show the Default.png before crashing. Just a split-second of a partial fade to black, then back to Springboard.
– It may only affect customers in some regions.
– If updating from iTunes, some customers might get a dialog citing error 8324 or 8326.
– Mac apps might show this dialog: “[App] is damaged and can’t be opened. Delete [App] and download it again from the App Store.”
– The console might show: AppleFairplayTextCrypterSession::fairplayOpen() failed, error -42110

For those who already downloaded corrupted versions of affected apps, the apps must be deleted and reinstalled.

Help is on the way

Baby Photo Effects

Posted: Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Baby Photo Effects has been released. I was motivated to do this app in honor of the birth of my niece’s new baby girl Leila.

Forum

Posted: Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

I added a new forum section to our web site. This should help us communicate better than we are able to via iTunes. Help us help you by posting on the forum!

The Proverbs Project

Posted: Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Well, we’ve finally shipped the Proverbs Project. I hope you like it. This was our first collaboration with a book author. Vern Herschberger is a delight to work with. Make sure you check out the printed book also. Amazon has it here.

3 new apps: Games, Sports, and Vacation

Posted: Thursday, September 16th, 2010

Okay, I know, the web site is behind the app releases. I have to make changes to get away from the tab design so I can show all our apps. I’ll get the latest apps on the site as soon.

Comments closed due to spamming

Posted: Thursday, September 16th, 2010

Well, I was hoping I would get some dialog going in this blog. Unfortunately, all I’m getting is spams and scams. I’ve closed blog comments for now.

Would you consider giving one of our apps a 4 or 5 star review? We’ve sold thousands of apps but only those with some kind of grip seem to post reviews. I don’t understand why folks would give a low rating after saying it’s a great app.

We’re hard at work adding great stuff! Please consider leaving a positive review so we can fund more great features.
