1.2.1 is live

1.2.1 is the same as 1.2 except it has support for the iPhone and iPod touch when running iOS 4.0.  I hope this is useful to you all.

A quick reminder or introduction to those who may have some questions on how to start out, you can look here or send me an email (folderapp@gmail.com) for additional help.

Thanks for using folder!

Edit:  It's now a few days later and while my developer account with Apple agrees with the email I got, that 1.2.1 is live and has been for days, I have yet to be able to get 1.2.1 from iTunes.  I'm working with apple to get this resolved, I will let you know when it has been taken care of.

1.2 live

Version 1.2 is now live on the app store.

The annoying rotation "empty folder" problem is fixed and emailing is alive and well.

One oddity is that for some reason it is only showing up as an iPad app and not allowing itself to be installed on an iPhone or an iPod touch.  I know this works as I tested it on both, so I'll be investigating this and hopefully get this completed by the time that 4.0 is available to the general public next week.  My apologies if this causes anyone any inconvenience.

In the meantime, enjoy the update.  As always, feedback (both good and bad) is appreciated!

1.2 submitted to apple.

I have submitted the new update to apple.  I was only going to work on it a little this evening but I got carried away.  =)

Here is the changes list:

- Added iPhone/iPod touch support (with iOS 4.0).
- Added emailing files option.  (This isn't available on the iPod touch)
- Fixed a problem with the empty folder message unexpectedly showing on rotation.
- Updated the button naming and text status.
- Updated the app's icon.

I was more paranoid about testing this go around because of the rotation problem from last time.  I am still surprised that nobody ever mentioned this problem, it was a bad oversight.  My apologies if it caused anyone frustration.

I have moved the buttons around some and made the text a bit more explanatory.  Here are some pictures of the app on the iPhone.

As always, comments, concerns and suggestions are welcome.  Thanks for using folder!

iOS 4 and the next update

I wanted to say a couple of things regarding folder's next version.

First, I plan on getting email integration taken care of and implemented.  If all goes well then this will be added in the next release.

With the changes in iOS 4 it will now be possible to make Folder for the iPhone/iPod touch.  I will be doing this in the next update as a universal app.  This will allow existing folder users to also use Folder on their iPod touch or iPhone and new users to get it for all platforms as well.

Additionally the icon has changed slightly since 1.1 and will be updated with the next release.  Thanks to osxmagazine.com for the icon help!

Suggestions and criticism are welcome.  Thanks for using Folder!
