XKCD Reader 2.0

June 14, 2012 | Category: iPhone, Programming

I’m finally getting around to rewriting my iPhone app! I thought it was about time to re-do the interface, and since I was doing that I might as well redo the code as well. I’ve made a huge amount of progress in one day, as you can see below:

Comic Display Screen

Comic List

As you can see, the comic listing and the image viewer are working for the most part. Unfortunately, currently the comic image is being constrained to the size of the UIImageView, and I haven’t figured that out yet. It’s also not responding to touch for some reason, including zoom gestures. Still not entirely sure what’s going on here, but I’ll definitely be working on it.

Features I’d like to include:

  1. Favorites menu
  2. Hideable text box with the comic mouseover text
  3. Search? maybe
  4. Some other things that I’m not confident enough yet to talk about

Thanks for reading! I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated 🙂
