Movie lookup crashes

April 27, 2010 Leave a comment

The TMDB recently made a few changes to their api, and I need to update. I’m working on it guys. They said they were going to update, but didn’t provide any details to prepare. If the change is what I think it is, it shouldn’t take long to fix.

opinions: they are like onions…. not everyone likes them

April 24, 2010 17 comments

Okay, I’m looking for opinions on a couple things.

First: Your impressions on identify 2… both good and bad. Reviews on macupdate are greatly appreciated. If, for some reason, you would score iDentify less than 4 or 5 stars, please let me know what I can do to improve it. (preferably let me know here or via email) I can take constructive criticism very well, and greatly appreciate it. Biased bashing though, not so much. The difference being that constructive criticism tells me what I need to do to improve, while bashing isn’t helpful at all, to anyone. It doesn’t tell me or potential users what you like or dont like.

Second, an alternative registration setup just occurred to me…. micro-payments… Some people don’t want to shell out 9.95 to register… and I can appreciate that.. I haven’t had a lot of time to deeply consider this, or look into if its even possible… But the general idea is this: you create a free account somewhere, maybe a site run by me, maybe a micro payment site.. I don’t know yet, but instead of paying 9.95 to register, with the micro payment setup, users would send something like 1 cent per file tagged, perhaps deducted automatically by iDentify. This means tagging nearly 1000 files before meeting or exceeding the 9.95 registration fee. The 9.95 would still be an option, as a 1 time payment for unlimited tags.

Just a bugfix release.
Fixed a bug causing “0”s to appear as chapter names when a chapter lookup failed.

I tried (unsuccessfully) all night to fix a bug that would prevent a file from getting a label color applied when it had an apostrophe in its file name. It’s not a huge bug, and I’m not sure I can even fix it at all due to the fact the file name passes through 3 different programming languages before it gets its label applied. I’m not going to spend any more time on this minor bug. I’m sure you would all agree that the time would be better spent on the next incarnation of iDentify. I’ve spent the past couple weeks learning cocoa (and I’m still only half way through my book) and putting the UI together with the knowledge I’ve gathered thus far. Its turning out pretty nice, and will be written in pure cocoa, instead of the mix of 3 or 4 different languages. Once I get a few more steps in (need to learn more about core data) I’ll post up some screen shots.
