Machine Screws Drill/Tap Info Update to version 1.3.6

Last night I pushed out an update for the Machine Screws Drill/Tap Info app (now version 1.3.6).   The update added a user requested size of 8-40 UNS.  I also corrected a couple of errors I found in the M2, M5, and M24 Screw sizes.

I know it is sounding like a broken record, I’m running a lot behind on the 2.0 update (AOD had a lot to do with it) ; but, I look to have something eventually (please read as I’ve not given up), please stay tuned …..

Thank you again!

PS: How did you think I found the errors?  Yup, getting resource files and data together 🙂

App Updates!

Both Jim’s Date Calc and the Machine Screws Drill/Tap Info were updated tonight.

Both saw a minor change that increased opening speed after the initial install and disclaimer acceptance.

Machine Screws Drill/Tap Info was updated to add Roll Form Tap sizes and allow for better resizing of the diagram (for developers it was made into a 9 patch graphic – worked wonders).

Machine Screws Drill/Tap Info v2.0 development has been slowed and still continues.  All the data is collected now and the next step is getting the graphics and GUI right.  I know it is being picky; however, my goal is for it to be easy to use and correct – that takes time to do.

Happy Easter and have a blessed holiday!  Keep in mind the reason for the season.

Machine Screws Drill/Tap Info App – v2.0 update planned

As Machine Screws Drill/Tap Info App approaches an unbelievable 500 users, plans are now being made to update Machine Screws Drill/Tap Info to version 2.0 to add common screw heads / washers / nuts.

It will take a couple of weeks, as I want the UI to be simple and effective (common screw heads / washers / nuts)  without going overboard.  The hardest part is ensuring that the data is correct and presented well.

Trust me, I want to do this as it was part of the original plan – so it may come in stages w/ screw heads first (I’ll have to see how it goes).   Be sure to check back here for updates.   Ideally, I would like see some additions (if not all) by the end of this month if that is possible.

Wow! Over 300+ Downloads of the Android Machine Screws Drill/Tap Info App

Thank you all for making this App much more than I ever expected!!  Not sure what this App is?  Head over to the Apps page and see the details here!

In other related news, the Stressed Geek Soundboard is nearing 1000 downloads and will be there sometime next week at its current rate. Again a much better response than I ever expected.

My next app is in the final stages and is undergoing testing and tweaks. It should do well look back here later for more details.

Warm Regards!

My New Android Application!

I created a new Android App using App Inventor.

It is a small machine screw size / information application. Unfortunately, Android Market will not allow App Inventor applications…. yet!

Anyway, if any of you are interested in this application, email me and we can arrange to buy it for my originally planned Android Market price of 99 Cents!!! ($0.99 US).

To see the screen shots & get an idea what the application looks like does, look here: http://blog.jimsjump.com/android-apps

Thanks!
