Bundle Me Crazy

Screen Shot 2014-10-10 at 23.24.39

Great news for iOS 7 and iOS 8 users: you can now buy all our Episode Guide apps in one handy bundle, thanks to the App Store’s new feature – freshly released for your convenience earlier today.

Included are all seven apps, from Poirot to Frasier – with everything in between. You can also “complete your bundle” and only pay the difference for apps you don’t already own. It’s very swish.

There has never been a better time to complete your collection – head over to the App Store now and grab that crazy Episodes Guides Bundle now.


Columbo v1.5 – “Murder under Glass”

Columbo-Icon-1024We’ve added a long lost missing episode to our Columbo App in Season 6/7 called “Murder under Glass”It’s the episode where Paul Gerard extorts money from his fellow restauranteurs.

Thanks to Radek for telling us about this faux pas!

The episode was indeed buried in the code but was commented out by accident. We’ve submitted the patch to Apple today and the new version should be available from the App Store very soon.

iPad Icons Update

Photo Dec 26, 11 53 12 AMWe’ve just found out that when our apps run on iPads, no icons are displayed. That’s bad!

The following apps were affected – and have been fixed in these versions:

  • Columbo (v1.4)
  • Bond Tracker (v1.6)
  • Monk (v1.2)
  • Sherlock Holmes (v1.4)

This bug only manifests since we’ve started developing with Xcode 5 which handles App Icons and Startup Screens a little bit different.

I’ve submitted the new versions today, they’ll be available from the App Store in the next few days.

Another mystery is solved!

Just one more thing – Columbo v1.3

Columbo-Icon-1024There’s one last update before we put 2013 to bed: our Episode Guide for Columbo. Here’s what’s new in version 1.3:

  • fixed a bug which did not show book covers when coming back from search results
  • fixed a bug whichever made search results,oak glaring white on iOS 7 devices
  • much nicer link to cover images
  • added option to hide that link (under Settings – Columbo)
  • added funky new iOS 7 UI
  • added 64bit support (on compatible devices)
  • improved user experience on 4 inch devices

Happy Holidays, everybody 😉
