AutoMile 1.4

AutoMile 1.4 is now available from my website.  I’ve also submitted the App Store version to Apple for review. Ideally I’d like to wait until it’s approved for the App Store and release them simultaneously, but since it fixes a crashing bug it seemed best to just get it out as soon as possible.

Please let me know if you encounter any issues with this release. Feedback is always welcome. Thanks!

Upcoming AutoMile Fixes

I wanted to take a moment out of my debugging to let all AutoMile customers know that there will be an update coming out soon.  I’ve been getting an increasing number of crash reports in the last few weeks now that more people are using AutoMile, I have not been ignoring them.  December was a very busy month and I just didn’t have the time I needed to properly investigate the issues.  But, between the new crash reports and some helpful emails I think I was finally able to find the cause of the problems.

Thank you for your patience while I’ve been working on this. I hope to get the update out as soon as possible.

If you have any comments or feedback, feel free to contact me.

AutoMile 1.3.1

AutoMile 1.3.1 is now available for download. The App Store version has been approved and should be available soon.

Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks

AutoMile and PostCheck are both 10.9 compatible. My Google Maps Plugin is not. If you find that PostCheck (or other Contacts plugins) are not loading correctly, please make sure that you remove the Google Maps Plugin if you had it installed. There’s a simple removal tool available on the Google Maps Plugin website.

PostCheck Installer Updated for Mac OS X 10.9

Now that the GM of OS X 10.9 is available for developers, I’ve once again updated the PostCheck installer. The only thing that’s been updated is the installer, the plugin hasn’t changed since the update in July. No need to re-download unless you’re also using OS X 10.9 and need to reinstall PostCheck.

Google Maps Plugin and Mac OS X 10.9

The current version of the Google Maps Plugin for Address Book ( will no longer be supported. It is not compatible with GM version of Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks due to inconsistent sandboxing with the new Contacts app. (The Address Book Plug-Ins folder is not sandboxed, but the Frameworks folder is. Not sure how Apple managed to do that.)

I’ve put together a removal tool for anyone that would like a quick way to uninstall the plugins from their Mac.

Thanks for the support over the last eight years!

AutoMile Sale Ends Saturday

Saturday will be the last day of the AutoMile 50% off sale.

AutoMile on Sale

Today I thought I’d try something new: I’m putting AutoMile on sale. It’s currently 50% off at $14.99, in the App Store and on my website. I’ll be honest, it’s a bit of an experiment. (I don’t know yet how long I’ll keep it on sale, but I’ll make an announcement before anything changes.)

Based on the statistics for my website, almost all AutoMile purchases come directly from the App Store. They don’t download the demo version first to try it out. They don’t read the website description of the app to see the details of how it works. There are very few reviews of AutoMile out there either.

Considering all that, I think it’s impressive that AutoMile has been selling on a regular basis at the original asking price of $29.99. I think it’s worth it at that price, of course. I’ve been using it in various forms for a few years now and it’s definitely lightened my work load come tax time.

If you are a current user of AutoMile, please leave a review somewhere: the App Store, your favorite blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Tell your friends and coworkers. It’d be most appreciated. It doesn’t matter how useful an app is if no one knows it exists.

And, like always, any feedback is welcome. Send me an email with your comments and suggestions.

Bombs! Removed from the App Store

Today I removed Bombs! from the App Store. It should still be available to download if you’ve already purchased it. It didn’t seem right to continue selling it when I haven’t updated it for the retina display, the iPhone 5, or any of the new features that iOS supports.

Bombs! was my first attempt at an iPhone app with the “new” SDK. At the time there were no Minesweeper-like games available and during the short development time of Bombs! about five showed up in the store. Mine had some unique features that made it competitive at the start. But, soon the market was flooded with similar apps (most free) which made it pointless for me to continue development.

Thanks to everyone that purchased Bombs!. I hope you enjoy the game for what it is.
