Just wanted to post a quick update, things have been quite hectic this year so far, so unfortunately I didn’t get around to writing a “part 2” to the previous post.
The most recent version of Sun Surveyor (1.4.9) features native Italian, Spanish, and German translations. Thanks to Samuele Tovagli, Marco Götze, and Francisco Javier Fonseca Padilla and Juan Pablo Fonseca Padilla!
I am pleased to say that version 1.0 for iOS is almost complete and ready for submission to the App Store, after some final touches and beta testing. The development target is as follows:
- iOS 5.0+
- iPhone 4, iPhone 4s (iPad version to follow)
- English (Italian, Spanish, German translations to follow)
As soon as it has gone through the review process and is in the App Store I will post an announcement.
Most of the functionality from the Android version will be present, the major difference being that some of the advanced Map functionality from Android will not be present in 1.0. This is due to the very different SDK APIs, and slightly different implementations of the Maps on iOS versus Android. This functionality will follow in a future update.
Working on a port to iOS has been very interesting; I’ve learned a lot from the experience so far and hope to write about it at some point in the future.
