Just a note that a new site is coming soon…
Just posted an update with some minor fixes, all related to UI.
Updated Vibrate During Meetings to v3.0 which included changes to support Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
I recently submitted Handy Construction Calculators to Windows Phone WP7. It should be live in the Marketplace shortly. I’m excited to bring the full app experience to Windows Phone, as it seems it is really in need of an app like this. I have really enjoyed developing for this platform and find it exciting to use as a phone. I will be porting most of my other apps as well. Stay tuned!
Made a few enhancements last night. Added several new grass types and also now show the low and high spread rates for each grass type so you can make finer adjustments if needed.
Realized recently I have pretty much been completely neglecting the website lately and will try to remedy that…
Last week I added a Baluster calculator to Handy Construction Calculators. It’s pretty advanced, even allowing for rake spacing adjustments depending on the angle. I’ve already recieved plenty of positive feedback on it.
I am focusing some time to make small improvements to alot of the calculators. For instance I recently updated the Drywall calc to include the ability to calc the wall and ceiling sq ft from just the room measurements.
Any other ideas please send me a note.
