Weekly Update – March 26, 2012

It’s been a quiet couple of weeks around here but that doesn’t mean nothing’s happening ūüėČ

I’m going to start doing a weekly update here to keep things updated between major releases.

There are four updates coming in the next little while:

  1. Rigel 2.1 will be released shortly (in a week or two) with TinyURL support.
  2. Live Titles will be getting background image support in April sometime.
  3. Schedule Posts Calendar will get updated to support quick edit mode (more on this below).
  4. A new Windows Phone application is in development, it will be a business card style app with QR code support.¬† Don’t have a release date, but certainly not until after the Live Titles update happens.

There are a few business card apps in the marketplace but they don’t do the kind of things I think they should so I’m going to write one myself.¬† Some of the features I expect to add:

  • Live Tile support
  • Multiple business cards supported
  • QR codes for vCards
  • Custom logos
  • Multiple font support
  • Custom background and font colors

Schedule Posts Calendar’s roadmap included quick edit support, but this looks to be very complex as quick edit is already a JavaScript¬†function and it may not be possible to alter it at run time.¬† I have a few idea’s on how to do it, or at least get something in place to give re-scheduling functionality without having to edit the post directly.¬† The week or so should give me enough time to find out how I’m going to tackle it.
