With the recent update to iOS 6.0 and the beautiful iPhone 5, it became necessary to update several of my apps to work with the new screen size. Whilst Apple
did us developers a huge favour by ensuring existing apps worked on the new phone, the “letterbox” effect detracted from the experience of owning an iPhone 5 in the first place.
When I updated uAlertMe, I took the opportunity to not only increase the screen size, but to revamp the look altogether. It now sports nice new retina artwork for both the iPhone 4/4s and the iPhone 5. In addition to this, I also thought it would be great to add some new features that have been long coming.
The most important new feature was social integration. I’ve always wanted users to have the ability to post or tweet the images received from the Mac running iAlertU, and iOS 6.0, with it’s deeply embedded support for both Twitter and Facebook, made this a natural addition.
So now, wherever you can see an image or screenshot, you will also have a handy tweet & post buttons allowing you to do just that. Just remember to tell your iOS 6.0 iPhone that you have a twitter or facebook account.
