Liya 3.0

Category : Technology/Liya3dot0.txt

I’ve released a new version of Liya, which makes Liya conformant to Apple’s App Sandbox guidelines for the first time. I had a problem working with SQLite files under the App Sandbox because SQLite creates a new file when the database is updated and saved (but the Sandbox only allows updates to the same file a user has opened and won’t allow an app to create new files in most folders outside designated user folders like the Home directory).

I couldn’t move ahead until my friend, Hai Hwee, solved the problem with the Sandbox, for the accounting app she is working on, called Luca, which we’re getting ready to sell on the App Store. That definitely had to be sandboxed and, necessity being the mother of invention, she found a way through and, since Liya and Luca share the same database access code, Liya is the beneficiary.

With this settled, I can now move on to making Liya work with iCloud and, hopefully even DropBox. 

But for now, Liya 3.0 is ready for download (though the App Store version is held up by Apple’s interminable approval process). 

With this version, Liya is also able to read SQLite dates created by Core Data (that are stored as a certain number of seconds from January 1st, 2001). Plus there are some bug fixes and minor interface improvements.
