PhotoUpLink 2.0.3 submitted to the App Store

Thursday, August 26th, 2010
Did it using the Xcode submission dialogs. Which provide NO. FEEDBACK. WHATSOEVER. The only way to know its working is to open Activity Monitor and go to the network traffic view. I’m still not sure what the bug is, as y’all know I have been gleefully uploading Facebook photo albums directly from my iPhone with this build. I fixed a couple of assumptions in the Facebook SDK so it may have more to do with the PhotoUpLink application not being installed into the Facebook account of whoever is testing it at Apple. So here’s hoping. Back to contract work meanwhile.

View the checkin wall here. Post to the checkin wall one touch with PhotoUpLink 2.0 for iPhone when approved. Members of the ad-hoc mailing list will be receiving a new build with the potential bug fix that will be submitted to Apple. Another iteration of the home screen

Watch the process here. See the results here. This is working perfectly for me, Apple said it crashes every time for them.

They say it crashed trying to upload to Facebook: At this time, PhotoUpLink cannot be posted to the App Store because it is crashing on iPhone 3GS running iOS 4.0.1 on a 3G and WiFi network. The application crashes when the user selects to upload photos to Facebook. The following are steps to reproduce: a. Lauch the application connected to a network b. Select Photos c. Select “Choose Destination” from the Home Screen d. Select Facebook e. Login to Facebook f. Select Upload g. The application crashes I tested that feature for hundreds of hours across different Facebook accounts and several different devices with varying iOS versions on them, with no problem, I would not have submitted it otherwise. I have tested it again on an iPhone 3GS running iOS 4.0.1 on a 3G and WiFi network, and I am unable to reproduce the crash after many attempts. Yet there it is. Something nasty I’m sure, but I will find it!

Apple said in their copy to developers once that the better an iPhone app icon looks, the more chance it has of being listed on the front page of iTunes. That hasn’t happened to me yet, but I found a great graphic designer to do the icons for PhotoUpLink, VideoUpLink and Torus. He is currently helping me with the new achievement icons for Torus, my placeholder programmer art doesn’t look so great. So be prepared to have your Facebook page (hopefully) festooned with those annoying Farmville/Mafia Wars style postings but this time from Torus, with gorgeous icons. I feel fortunate to have his services, he is a major player. Neil is always available for graphic design and art work, check out his site for more information.
