iPhone 5 Bluetooth problems pairing with BMW

November 28, 2012 2 comments

Got my new iPhone 5 last week. Need to test my apps on the latest device…..

Couldn’t get it to sync to my wife’s 1 series. Looking on internet loads of people seem to have the same problem. Some suggest its a naming problem, some a bug that needs fixing. Have to admit i was quite annoyed for a while – it would just hang at the passcode stage. However I decided to try the old turn it off and on again trick – actually i did a hard reset – and whoa it worked first time. Paired no problems. I remember when the first iPhone came out a load of people said it was worth rebooting it every now and again but I got out of the habit. Bizarrely Ive been having a problem with printing on my iMac that rebooting cured. That hadnt been rebooted for about 6 months. Perhaps i should do it every now and again!

Over 500 downloads so far and more bugs fixed….

October 22, 2012 2 comments

Thanks to Australian Doctor M.C. Schieb, FRACP, Sydney, Australia, who posted detailed notes on minor bugs/typos on our existing questions – I pulled the upload that was waiting for review – and have uploaded a new version thought still called v1.1 with all his spotted bugs removed. Largely my fault – in that some of the copying and pasting of questions and answers into the database went wrong in places and after a while you get word blind to errors and need a third party to review them.

229 downloads day 1 & bugs found and fixed!

October 20, 2012 2 comments

The good news is Prep4Finals had 229 downloads on day 1!

The even better news is ive found and fixed the menu bug but Doh! it was a stupid mistake.

Because i added the code that showed how many questions you had got right and had answered at the last minute – i forgot that on the menu items that dont have it – you cant just say nothing – you have to clear it.

so my fixed code becomes:

switch (indexPath.row) {

case 0:

cell.textLabel.text = @”Instructions & Introduction”;

                cell.detailTextLabel.text = @””;


case 1:

cell.textLabel.text = @”About Us & Release Notes”;

                cell.detailTextLabel.text = @””;


case 2:

cell.textLabel.text = @”Courses & adverts”;

                cell.detailTextLabel.text = @””;





with the bolded lines being added to clear the cells subtitle on the row that don’t need a subtitle.

Ive also fixed a couple of other formatting errors on a couple of pages.

I plan to upload before the weekend the new version to Apple – however i will see if I can get some extra questions added first. If not then I’ll do those next week.

Prep4Finals out!

October 19, 2012 Leave a comment

Yes Prep4Finals is out!
I’ve downloaded it toa fresh machine and it seems to work fine…..
However I’ve noticed a couple of little bugs…
Why the front menu has gone wrong I’m not sure and will look at later…
There are a couple of text formatting errors that need correcting but they are minor.
Basically for speed I did the text in a UItextview which is simple but doesn’t allow much formatting.
My ultimate aim is to move It to a UIWebview so I can use full HTML formatting. I. Might just correct the little errors first though…..
