Line Diet is Back - and Open Source!


Get it now, or check out the project on Github

Back in July of 2013 I released an app called Line Diet for iPhone written using Xamarin.iOS. A few years later an iOS update broke my custom implementation of entering a weight, so the app stopped working (as I had no time to fix it), and I pulled it from the App Store. Since then I've intended on re-releasing it (and even had a personal version with nearly complete Apple Watch support), but since this was more of a personal interest app, and not one that was generating revenue, it sat on the back-burner for the last year or two.

Today I'm happy to announce that not only is Line Diet back, but it is now available for both iOS and Android. On top of that, it is now an open source project on Github. It is written in C# and XAML using Xamarin.Forms, Prism, and OxyPlot. While the app is pretty straight forward, it has some pretty neat features as well (dynamic color theming, MVVM architecture, graphing, etc.). My hope is that it serves as a good sample app for folks looking to learn MVVM based mobile app development using C#, Xamarin.Forms, and Prism. It has plenty of potential extension points as well, so feel free to submit a pull request if you have interest in adding to the project.

Word Search - Little Books now available on Android!

I am very happy to announce that Word Search - Little Books, my latest game, is now available for all Android devices on Google Play here. Word Search - Little Books is a word search game. What makes it unique from the many other word searches out there is that it utilizes both touch and stylus input. As best I can tell, Word Search - Little Books is the first word search game on any mobile platform to support stylus - don't worry, the touch support is great too. It also brings a bit more depth to the genre which is currently mostly puzzle generators and little more.
