You can now get  iOS 7 in Action, my second book (and second with Manning Publications), on Amazon! It's been over a year since I started writing this book with my co-author, Martin Conte Mac Donell.  If you're interested in learning iOS you should check it out. It's already accumulated a few great reviews.

iOS 7 in Action is a detailed, hands-on guide that teaches you how to create amazing native iOS apps. You'll dive into key topics by exploring thoroughly explained real-world code examples you can expand and reuse. Learn about Collection Views, Storyboarding, Twitter & Facebook Integration, Passbook, Airplay, and much more. If you're already creating iOS apps, you'll learn how to capitalize on the newest iOS features.

Wells, Spencer, and I spent a night painting the office a week or two ago. Wells also rearranged the furniture and added Asteroids decals on the wall. Here's a photo that shows one side of the office. Ignore spooky Hello Kitty in the corner. There's an explanation for that coming soon.

It's been a long time in the making but it's finally here. You can check it out on Amazon or on Manning's page.

Update: Also just noticed that it mentions MacRuby for iOS on the back of the cover. There actually isn't a section on that in the book anymore because it wasn't possble at the time (and still isn't) :/

We're extremely excited to announce the new Kicksend iPhone app. It's free, and lets you share large batches of photos, send large videos, receive files in real time, and even share files from other apps. You can get it now on the app store!

Sharing Large Batches

Sending photos using the default iPhone email app is extremely limiting - you can only send four photos at a time. If we take a bunch of awesome photos, we have to repeat this process many times to send them to our friends. With Kicksend for iPhone you can select up to twenty photos at a time and send them to any email address, friend, or even a list of thousands of people in high resolution.

In the initial version of the app, we've limited batch sharing to just photos; we'll be adding videos in the next release.  

Share Files from Other Apps

How have we enabled file sharing on the iPhone? Well, we've allowed you to send files from other apps using the Kicksend iPhone app.  You can send files that are too big for you to send through email and files that other applications won't normally let you share. If you have a PDF file locked up in an app on your iPhone, all you have to do is choose "Open with Kicksend" and we'll let you send it to anybody you want.  

Delivered From Your Phone to Your Friends' Hard Drives

If your friends have the Kicksend desktop app, any files you send them will be delivered automatically to their hard drives. You can be on the other side of the planet and send photos instantly to your best friend's computer, allowing them to view your pics privately, instantly, and effortlessly. 

Receive Files Instantly on Your iPhone, Desktop, and Web

The iPhone app gives you the same great Kicksend experience that you're used to on the desktop or web. When your friends send you files, they show up instantly on all of the devices you have connected. You can stand next to your friend who's using the Kicksend iPhone app, send him a photo or video, and watch it appear on his screen instantly.

We started Kicksend with a vision of a building an effortless way to send & receive the things we care about, with the people we know. This new iPhone app is a big step in that direction, and we hope you love using it as much as we do.

Our older Delonghi (ESAM3200) had water pump issues so my awesome parents surprised Edel and I with a brand new one! The 3300 model has a dual boiler and a much quieter motor and burr grinder. Thanks Mom and Dad!
