September 2007


Acorn IconI was invited to beta test Flying Meat‘s Acorn and provide some feedbacks and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at the interface direction Acorn Developer Gus Mueller took it to. It is very refreshing to see a different approach to image editor interface by combining all key tools into one palette window. On paper it may sound like a stupid idea but it’s actually a good design idea.

Two things I love the most about Acorn are the selection look (not “Marching Ants” like in Photoshop) and Apply Filters interface in Automator style.

Of course it is not intended to be a Photoshop replacement but it sure is nice to have a nicely designed image editor app that I can happily recommend to anyone who doesn’t need the power of Photoshop.

I know it sounds creepy but more than occasionally I’ve been falling asleep with iPhone in my hands. I’ve had many gadgets in the past including Sidekick and Nintendo DS Lite which I love but none of them put me to sleep as well and smooth as iPhone does. It’s frightening, though, to wake up with iPhone in my hands as I have a great deal of care for gadgets, especially those from Apple. Hopefully my bad dreams won’t turn iPhone into a giant squishy cockroach and force me to take action against it.

On the other hand, I’m currently working on two more iPhone projects and while they’re still at early stage, I can’t wait to show them sometime soon :)

Changelist:

  • All puzzles should now be solvable.
  • The state of the buttons is now saved when Lights Off is quit.
  • Button presses can now be cancelled by dragging your finger off the button before letting go.
  • Minor graphic changes (main icon and bigger buttons)

It should be available via iPhone’s unofficial Installer.app sometime soon.

Tip: If you’re unable to turn off all lights in a specific level, try throw your iPhone to the cement floor hard to break the LCD light. Mission accomplished.
