iCapital 2.0 iPhone app

I’ve just released version 2.0 of the iCapital app, which is completely redesigned for iOS7.

iCapital was my guinea pig project to learn about Objective-C a few years ago, and since then I didn’t have the time to update it for iPhone 4 and 5.

With the arrival of iOS7 I’ve took the time to polish this baby up according to Apple’s new guidelines and look’n’feel! Hope you’ll enjoy learning about the world!

Download it now for only half a glass of beer (0.89 cents) in the App Store and if you have any requests, just post them in the comments!

List of countries and capitals of the world (json, xml, csv)

For the upcoming release of iCapital 2.0 I needed a list of all the countries and capitals of the world in json format. I searched the web, but couldn’t find a proper solution until I found these lists on GitHub.

Sadly they only contained the countries of the world, so on a boring Sunday night, I’ve extended the list with all the capitals for those countries!

iCapital v1.5 released

This week a new version of iCapital got released in the App Store. It was my guinea pig app to learn myself Objective-C this summer when I broke my foot. It was an excellent learning app, because it covered a lot of new concepts which I had to tackle:

  1. Core Data
  2. Migrating data on updates
  3. Memory management
  4. Retina support
  5. Game Center

Now, 8 months later, I took a look at how I left my code behind in my repository and I thought it was a good thing to rewrite the whole app as I now have a much better understanding of the language.  Since then I created a new game Boring Meeting OXO, an iPad app (in a private store, but you can take a look how it works here, this was still in a development phase), and a few personal apps.  As I feel myself comfortable with the language now, I hope I can release many new apps soon (one is coming pretty soon :-)!

As with every update, I give away some promo codes you can redeem via the App Store. So for the quick readers, here are 10 promo codes:


I hope you have fun with it!

iCapital – an app to learn the countries a fun way

Due to a broken foot this summer, I finally found the time to investigate the objective-c language.

As a result of this, I’ve just released my first app to the App Store … iCapital!

It’s a little app which let you search for any country in the world and it will tell you what the capital is. You can also do an inverse search (so if you know the capital and you want to know the country). If you want additional data, the app connects to Wikipedia!
