Realm Status for WoW is LIVE!

Finally, my very first iOS app is live on the App Store!  Realm Status for WoW is a really simple app that displays a list of all US World of Warcraft realm servers and shows which are online and which aren’t.  You can even select just your favorite realms and filter on those so you aren’t always searching through a long list of servers. Since this is the very first version, the functionality is pretty limited.  I do have plans to add more features to the app (I’ve actually already submitted v1.1, replacing iAd, which really is going away, with Google...

Rejected!

So, my first iOS app submission was rejected. We found that the usefulness of your app is limited by the minimal features it includes.  Specifically, your app only includes a single view of data.

Just submitted my first iOS app!

Brand new start to my blog.  I’ve decided that I want to dedicate this site to my software development.  And what better way to launch that new endeavor by announcing that I have submitted my first iOS app to the App Store!  It’s a pretty simple app called Realm Status for WoW.  As you can tell, it basically lists all US realms (for now) and indicates whether or not those realms are online.  Right now, that’s all it does.  But I do plan on making updates to the app.  I’ve already got a small list of new features I’d like...
