  • Dropping support for iPhone OS2.x

    Posted on March 19th, 2010 Cahit Crcioglu No comments

    This post/announcement is related to the projects i create for iPhone operating systems.

    I have been supporting even OS2.0 for all of my applications. And starting with RADYO‘s new version, i’ll be dropping support for iPhone OS versions below 3.0. So current owners of iPhone RADYO who have OS 2.x will not be able to upgrade to the newest version.

    – Usage statistics for last 3 months of my iPhone applications show that only %1.8 uses iPhone OS version 2.x

    – Usage statistics for last month shows that only %1.2 uses iPhone OS version 2.x

    I can consider 2.x as an old system (for myself) according to these numbers. iPhone OS’ new version is coming and also we’ll be using iPads. Both supporting OS 2.0 and adding new features takes more time both for testing and planning the project.

    Under these circumstances continuing to give support for OS2.x is not feasible anymore.

  • Apple really considers bug reports

    Posted on April 15th, 2009 Cahit Crcioglu 1 comment

    I had sent a bug report to apple while i was working on my iPhone application. This bug was related to user interface components. (I’m sorry that I can not directly give the details because of the agreement ). I’ve let apple know this bug with the title “UITextfield background opacity affects background image too”.

    They were incredible in doing their job. In a short time i’ve received a mail from apple related to the report, they were saying “…Engineering believes this issue has been addressed in iPhone OS 3.0b3…”. And at that time new iPhone OS 3 beta released (beta 3).

    They’ve ended the mail with
    ” Thank you for your time. We truly appreciate your assistance in helping us discover and isolate bugs.
    Best Regards “.

    How come you can not love such a company!

    Thank you Apple! (However you are a bit slow and unresponsive to some situations, i think it’s because of the internal strategy and decisions.)
