Slydr 2.2 re-submitted to marketplace

Got notification last night that i had bungled up my v2.2 submission. All the dictionaries and keyboard layouts had taken its toll and i had conveniently forgotten to include Slovakian dictionary with the release.

Now i way already working on landscape support so decided to wait a day and submit it all. Here you go. 2.2 is now with microsoft. It contains all dictionaries and full landscape support. I have tested each and every single language and layout both in landscape and portrait mode to ensure that it works and goes through.

Also the Application icon and App Tile icons now get their colours from the theme. No more static blue icons. If you like Red or Green or any colour it will change use that as the background.

I am starting to see some use in Nordic countries. Though Pre-Emptive analytics website is not being very reliable off late.

I am spending this weekend laying out the decking so no work on Slydr for couple of days.


Another 8 days to go

The joys of coding a numerous 🙂

for starters its all the praise you get from users 😛

I am resisting desire to make release before adding support for Nordic / Russian / Ukarainian.
the thing that makes it hard is that standard Querty keyboard has 10 letters in a row max. Nordic / Russian / Ukarainian has 11 letters per row. While means i need to rework a lot of character detection code 😦

why why why… just when life was getting easier 🙂

The total support languages for 2.0 will be
English, French, German, Spanish, Catala, Italian, Portuguese, Bralizian Portuguese, Polish, Hungarian, Czech, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Russian, Ukarainian and Turkish. (word lists are ready for these languages… yay – hope i got them right)

After adding these, i need to fix a bug in automatic space addition. If i still have energy, I will try to add Slovakian.

I have another 8 days of laptop use before i lose it for 3 weeks. I might do some work from my desktop – which recently got all the dev tools but i have a hectic schedule of fixing my garden while the girls are away. All i gotta do is take some paving slabs off from half the garden, put new ones in the first half and landscape the rest of it. DIY paving here i come
