Port to Apple - updates

An update on Android. I have the beginnings of data on the map. Just got to fill it out and add scales, then the Android app is usable for testing and fixing crashes. While I’m testing I’ll start working on the map for Apple - this is the last major iOS-specific component for Apple. If this work, it should be all downhill from here.

Hi all,

The port to Apple is progressing well. I’ve just got map going on the Android version and tomorrow, I start on the final major development stage for Apple - the map on iOS. This is new and unknown to me. I have to learn iOS Metal. I’m hopeful and optimistic we might have the iOS map going in the next few weeks. This will mean it should be all downhill from there and we should have an alpha version ready for testing.

Cheers, Duane.

Today we made a huge milestone - we have the basics of the weather map going in Apple. I’m expecting and hoping it’ll be mostly downhill from here.

Next:

  • get dots drawing for places on the map.
  • get land map tiles drawing.
  • get color fields drawing for data, e.g., precipitation, temperature, wind, etc…
  • then complete the basic UI.

Great job!
Congratulations!

Great News everyone!! We have the map going for basic data. I don’t see many risks left in porting to Apple. I’m optimistic it’ll be home sailing from here.

Next up:

  • controls
  • scale bar
  • “Add Place” feature
  • swipe control gesture
  • zoom gesture
  • fix gauges view

Then we should be ready for some alpha testing with GFS, basic data (precipitation, temperature, pressure, wind, etc…) and metric units.

After this alpha release we will start filling in the gaps.

Exciting times ahead.
