Overcoming Trouble Validating Your iPhone App

You are all excited because you finished developing your iPhone App and you have performed the necessary steps in the iOS Dev Center and in iTunes Connect. You have clicked on Product > Archive in Xcode 4 and are ready to upload it.
You click the Validate button and login. It says: "No identities are available for signing" You click Download Identities and login again. You get your hopes up only to have them dashed because now it says:
"No identities were available"  "An administrator must request identities before they can be downloaded."   Say what?

Well, in a nutshell, the Bundle identifier in your Xcode project doesn't match the Bundle ID you registered online.
Here is how to fix it: Login to iTunes Connect.Click "Manage Your Applications"Click on your app.Click "More", and choose "About This App".Copy the Bundle ID.Go to your project in Xcode 4.Click the folder at the top left, under the Run button.Click the node …

App For Calculating Cost Per Ounce When Shopping

Image
I made an app for iPhoneiPad and Android that helps you calculate the cost-per-ounce of products when you are grocery shopping. It is great for comparison shoppers and couponers.

Scenario: Let's say there is a 32 ounce box of cereal for $5 on the shelf, and on the shelf below there is a 24 ounce box for $4. This app helps you quickly figure out which one is actually the better deal. In this case the $5 box is the better deal at about 15.6 cents an ounce whereas the $4 box ends up costing about 16.6 cents an ounce.

The app is very easy to use: Just enter the dollar amount and the ounces, push the button to calculate the cost per ounce, and there you have it!

Tip: Even though the app was specifically made to calculate cost-per ounce, you could possibly also get away with using it to calculate cost-per-pound, cost-per-gallon, and even cost-per-diaper if you wanted to.

3 Ways To Edit Office Documents From Your iPad

While Microsoft has not released a native app that allows you to edit Microsoft Office documents on an iPad, there are multiple tools that allow you to use Word or Excel through a streaming remote session.

Here are three services that I recommend looking into for using Office programs from your iPad:

1. Nivio
Nivio actually logs you into a remote session of Windows. You can use Word, Excel and more.

2. CloudOn
CloudOn opens Word, Excel, and PowerPoint in full screen mode. It connects to Box.net, DropBox, and Google Drive.

3.  OnLive Desktop
OnLive Desktop also logs you into a remote session of Windows where you can use different apps including Word and Excel.

A WiFi Internet connection is required in order to use Office programs on all three of these iPad apps because Word or Excel itself is not running on the iPad. Instead you are connected to a remote server where it shows you an interactive screen-share of the app.


Touching a UIButton in a UIScrollView Prevents Scrolling in iOS

I am developing a web browser for the iPhone. It will use the UIWebView control for rendering the web pages. I am using Objective-C to dynamically create UIButtons at run-time and add them to a UIScrollView. However, I have found that when you try to scroll the scrollivew, if you are dragging one of the buttons, it prevents the scrollview from scrolling. If you are dragging an empty part of the scrollview that doesn't contain anything, it will scroll.

I will have to do some research to figure out how to get the scrolling to work for my scenario.
