Liya for iPhone does Multi-Tasking

Category : Technology/LiyaMultiTasking.txt

I've been reading the iOS 4 programming documentation most of the day - only to find that it takes just one line of code to implement multi-tasking.

It's amazing. And I think it helps improve the app's usefulness, too, to be able to, e.g. read a message, look up a database, copy and paste data from the database to the email message, and when you get back to the database to make another search, start off where you left off, rather than have to login to the database all over again.

So, Liya for iPhone now does multi-tasking. I'm now figuring out where the best places are to insert iAd banners into the app. When that's done, I'll submit this version, 1.0.2, to the App Store.

Hai Hwee is almost done with a basic version of Luca for iPhone. You'll be able to monitor the Trial Balance, Balance Sheet and Profit & Loss data, if you're using MySQL or PostgreSQL as the Luca database. No data entry yet. That will come next. But it'll be a free download.

Liya for iPhone 1.0.1

Category : Technology/LiyaForiPhone1dot0dot1.txt

Liya for iPhone 1.0.1 with multi-lingual text entry and search support is now available for free download at the App Store.

I'm now working on adding support for multi-tasking on iPhone's iOS 4. Plus, I've already got iADs working (less than 30 minutes of work).

Hai Hwee should be ready with a Luca for iPhone by the end of the week.
