Lua Scripting The UI For Pocket MUD Pro

Brandon Trebitowski

Posted in iDevBlogADayiPhoneI have just updated my MUD client [Pocket MUD Pro] to be a universal library.  It was surprisingly easy to add the iPad support as most of the application was comprised of UITableViews. The main “MUD” view was the most challenging part as it contains a couple UIWebViews, UIButons, and a UITextField. However, I chose […]

Why you Should Check Out Unity

Brandon Trebitowski

A while back, my buddy seantron showed me some of his 3D games he’d been working on including this one. My initial reaction was “how the heck did he get the chopps to do that?”. While, Sean is an incredible developer with a ton of creativity, doing things like loading models, texture mapping, or even basic 3D projects are flippin hard. A while back I tried my hand at 3D and made sort of a basic Minecraft style game from scratch using OpenGL ES. Let me tell you, it was brutal (and I have been coding for almost 10 years). […]

Tether Your iPhone Without Jailbreaking (Or Paying For It)

Brandon Trebitowski

With all of the buzz around the iTether App, I figured I’d offer a more permanent solution since Apple will surely yank this soon Last year, a developer published his code for an http SOCKS proxy called iProxy. This will give your iPhone the ability to create a SOCKS server in which your laptop can […]

What’s Your Cruising Speed?

Brandon Trebitowski

Earlier this year, I launched an application called Smart Lockscreen Creator. It was a pretty simple app that allowed you to add dynamic data (such as weather) to your wallpaper and save it back out to your camera roll. The idea is to improve the functionality of the user’s lockscreen. It did very well on launch (and even made it to #1 in the Israel App Store). At the peak, I was selling about 600 copies per day. Well, the honeymoon period is over and sales have slowed down quite a bit, however they have completely stabilized around what I’m […]

Join Me At The Voices That Matter iOS Conference

Brandon Trebitowski

In November, I will be attending the Voices That Matter iOS Developers conference. It will be my third time attending, and I can’t recommend it enough. One major change from this year however is, I will be attending as a sponsor. A new company/project (currently in private alpha) will be participating as a sponsor at the conference. We intend to have a table set up with multiple computers and devices so you can check out our product first hand. Bleh, that sounds kind of spammy. But, we have been working on something incredibly killer and I can’t wait to share […]
